Episode 511 – Partner with Discord, the Abruptly Nonfunctional

The dorks are here to discuss Announcement Day and our reactions to all the news that came out of it. Warning: some of these reactions might surprise you. They sure surprised me!

After that it’s time to jump onto Battlebond previews! There’s a lot of really neat stuff going on here. The mechanics are neat, the new cards are awesome, and the reprints are absolutely bonkers. Plus we get to explore a new relationship between an angel and a demon and make fun of Vince Russo. Everyone wins!

As you might be able to tell from the title, we had some technical difficulties this week as Discord gave us our first ever hiccup! At least, as far as I can remember it’s the first problem we’ve had with it. Still better than Skype!

Rest in peace John Bain, you will be missed.

    So I had an experience fighting grothoma where my team mate and i swing 9 power over 4 bodies at the 10/8 fatty. Our opponents cast grotesque mutation and give him +3/+1 and life link and then proceed to gain 13 life times each attacker…. They gain 52 life. I draw 3 cards for my portion of the damage, 3 islands….
