Episode 485 – Colored By Dumbness

After another adorable Sam Quiz, we’ve got our work cut out for us. We have decided, perhaps foolishly, to do a Mythic Conscription for Magic’s first full size expansion. If you know your history, you know that means Ice Age – the home of cumulative upkeep, massive text boxes, and commons sitting in the rare slot. This set was created in the dark days of Magic design, when no one really knew what they were doing.

Mike & Chewie were actually playing back when Ice Age was around so some of their picks are colored by their younger selves’ experiences. Other picks are, as the title spells out, colored by experiences we’ve all had since then with some of these cards, not to mention the historical significance of a few.

Also, hiccups. Lots of hiccups.

    Re: Illusions of Grandeur, also consider the significance of “Gain 20 life” in the same set as Necropotence.

      I don’t know why it didn’t come up, but if I remember correctly Necro was also a key part of the Trix deck. Not only did it help set you up with the combo pieces quickly because of the crazy card draw, but you could also go ahead and run out Illusions and use the extra life to dig for the Donate if you didn’t have it yet.
