Episode 90 – Instructions on Not Attacking Dirk (Multiplayer Combat)

Grand MeleeWow, we’ve made it up to 90. You believe that? To celebrate this auspicious occasion (not really) we have a whole mess of episode for you. After a somber intro, where we dedicate this episode to a friend who is no longer with us, we go into further detail about the new Duel Decks Contest here on The Mana Pool. You can find the official forum announcement for the contest here:

There’s been a lot of super-neato stuff on the Magic site in the last week, so we go over all of it. The RYZ shoe design contest winners (Wrath and Damn is sweet!), some Magically delicious soda, and a teeny little hint of Planechase. Check out the links to all of those down below.

Then we finally come to the long-awaited topic at hand. We’ve been meaning to do an episode on multiplayer combat for at least a month or so, but lots of things kept getting in the way. But we’ve managed to get past all the events and updates and whatnot, and boy was Brian ready for this one. His lawyer side took over, and he categorized all the various important attacks that occur in multiplayer Magic. And I mean all of them. And then we discussed them all, offering anecdotes and examples where applicable. And don’t ever attack Dirk. No really. Don’t do it. You’ll be sorry.

Then I finish us up with a quick recounting of my M10 Prerelease experience. I was with AJ (Kill AJ!), just outside of Washington DC, and the tournament was…let’s say interesting. You can hear the full story right here. A teaser: I played black/red (big surprise).
