Episode 574 – Historic Anthology: TMP Edition

The dorks are back with more timely content! First up we have to comment on the recent massive B&R update, because it was pretty big. But then we’re shifting to the Historic Anthology announcement for Magic Arena! They’re adding 20 cards from the pre-Historic era (can’t believe we missed that joke on the show!) to Arena for use in the new format and Chewie thought we could totally do that too!

Each of the four dorks picked out five cards of our own to add to Historic! We each came at this from a different angle, so we ended up with a pretty sweet Historic Anthology: TMP Edition. Let us know what you’d put into Historic!

Card Quality is Key! – Beginner’s Guide to Arena

The next entry into the Beginner’s Guide to Arena continues! This time we’re winding down our bizarre no-removal Druid run!

On our third outing with the deck, we’re starting at 3-2 and desperately trying to get one more win! Luckily, our late game is full of big guys which is definitely a help. Of course our mid- to late-game is only sort of good, which might actually be our end.

If you can see where I screwed up or where I could have done something differently then by all means hit the comments and let me know! We’ll have a conversation and maybe we’ll all be able to learn something!

DISCLAIMER: I am NOT any sort of expert in Arena. I’m just pretty okay. My best run was 10-3, but that only happened once. I seem to average around 5-6 wins, which is JUST shy of “going infinite”.

I REALLY Hate Mind Control – Beginner’s Guide to Arena

The next entry into the Beginner’s Guide to Arena continues! This time we’re continuing to play with our zero-removal Druid deck!

On our second outing with the deck, we’re starting at 2-1 and still excited about the deck! Until we run afoul of a particularly ridiculous 10-mana spell. But no worries, this video is not the end of our run just yet!

If you can see where I screwed up or where I could have done something differently then by all means hit the comments and let me know! We’ll have a conversation and maybe we’ll all be able to learn something!

Learn From My Mistakes! – Beginner’s Guide to Arena

The next entry into the Beginner’s Guide to Arena continues! This time we’re finally playing the Druid deck we drafted last time.

My first game illustrates a very basic and simple task that we all slip up on every once in a while – READ THE FRIENDLY CARD! After that I play two more games, both to try to redeem myself and to illustrate strategies that are necessary when you have a deck with ZERO removal.

If you can see where I screwed up or where I could have done something differently then by all means hit the comments and let me know! We’ll have a conversation and maybe we’ll all be able to learn something!

Drafting Druid & New Camera Test – Beginner’s Guide to Arena

The next entry into the Beginner’s Guide to Arena has begun! This time I’m walking you through my Druid draft, and we’ll start the games in the next episode!

This episode also serves as a test for my new camcorder! I’m trying to determine the best way to use it, so I’m recording video with it and audio with THREE different sources to be sure that you guys get the best quality I’m capable of providing! Let me know how it looks & sounds in the comments.
