Episode 505 – Dominaria: Layers of Goodness

Dominaria is absolutely insane. The set is good on SO. MANY. LEVELS. The cards are good and interesting. The flavor is delicious. The nostalgia levels are through the roof, but not to the exclusion of fun and ease of understanding (looking at you, Time Spiral). And there’s even another layer below that, for the hardcore and old-school MTG fans. The full set was conveniently revealed the day we recorded this, so we’re just bouncing around calling out awesome cards.

We also spend the beginning of the episode thanking some extremely generous fans for a series of unrelated gifts. Tenthtechpriest, Stark Maximum, SogekingUsopp, and Stijn Meganck – you guys are amazing and we appreciate everything!

    The set references go WAY deeper than just Pardic Wanderer:

    I forgot Korlash was a card up until you mentioned him in the episode when talking about the Blackblade, and since he has essentially BECOME the heir to the sword, it got me thinking. Can you imagine how amazing THAT character arc could be *drools*

      I don’t know about Korlash being Gideon, but I think it’s plausible for this story to put Gideon and Liliana through a series of events that has them falling in love after it’s all over and she’s finally free.
