Episode 480 – Commander 2017 Live!

ep480

Preview season for Ixalan was a little weird due to the big leak. So even though the entire set has been revealed now, there’s just…not much left to talk about. And since we were going to be missing Mike anyway, we decided to get a live episode out of the can!

A few weeks ago the Dorks gathered at Brian’s house to play some Magic! We played a game with the then-somewhat-newly-released Commander 2017 decks. We opened them just before starting the recording and shuffled up. Dirk was on Cats, Brian played Wizards, Mike was on Dragons, and Chewie was on Vampires. And yes, the length of this episode is accurate. It was an epic long game, but oddly enough there weren’t any of those miserable chunks in the middle where nothing happens for anyone. Nice. Let us know what you think!

Episode 476 – The Post-Eclipse Pretender Episode

After a brief discussion about Fuller House and a not-so-brief discussion about our experiences with the Great North American Eclipse, we’re actually going to talk about Magic! Seriously though, the total eclipse was amazing and moving. Like wow.

We’re doing a Commander 2017 Story Circle! After discounting the Eminence commanders and a few of the less interesting legends in the set, we finally decided on Mairsil, the Pretender. The problem with Mairsil is…I guess you’ll just have to listen and find out what the problem with Mairsil is!

Episode 475 – Travis the Cursed

Let us tell you a tale, a tale of a dude. That dude is Travis, and he just keeps having problems. Poor Travis. Maybe if he wasn’t so awesome he wouldn’t run into so much trouble. Or maybe he just really sucks.

Hey look, Brian’s back! And look, we have a lot more Commander cards to talk about! Yay! And look, the Cat Dragon token is SO ADORABLE! I WANT ONE!

Please excuse Chewie’s mic the first 2.5 minutes of this episode. That was weird.

Episode 474 – We Can’t Handle All This Majesty!

These Commander 2017 cards are SO MAJESTIC! Seriously. Mike forgot how to speak. Dirk forgot how to read. Chewie almost choked to death. And they were SO MAJESTIC that Brian wasn’t even here. Look at all that majesty!

But because we got so caught up in the multicolored cards (mostly the legends), we opted to leave the monocolored cards until next week so Brian can join in on the fun.
