Episode 520 – Never Trust Twitch Chat

Since Commander 2018 comes out this weekend, we’ve decided to do a couple Story Circles this episode! But since we’re streaming the shows now, we’ve decided to give Twitch Chat some input. They get one entry per round AND they picked from three possibilities to decide who our second Commander would be! See? You should totally come hang out and watch the show live!

Also, Dirk is a monster.

Episode 519 – Arterial Spritz

This episode we’re taking a look at ALL the rest of the cards in Commander 2018 that we missed last episode! This leads to discussions about the HR manager in charge of hiring Humiliators, the Bane of enchanters, how the Ravenous Slime uses its skulls, and of course the titular arterial spritz of the Bloodtracker. We may or may not have been extra silly this episode.

Please, give us feedback! Let us know how the change has impacted your experience with the show, whether it’s in audio form, live on Twitch, or watching the YouTube version of the stream later!

Episode 518 – Ninja Juice Replentishment

This is the first of our new live episodes! This one is ALL Commander 2018, because there’s a lot of it. In fact, we didn’t even finish it all, so we’ll probably come back to it next week. We’re covering all the new planeswalkers, all the new Commanders we could find, and a handful of the most entertaining/powerful/bizarre new cards in the set! Oh, and the Commander Storm cycle, because Twitch chat was going to riot if we didn’t.

Episode 517 – Seriously Toothy Content

This episode begins with a little bit (like, a seriously tiny bit) of Commander 2018 news from the announcement that came from a stream on the day we recorded. We get deck names, colors, and a few pieces of art. But hey, we go over all that for you!

Then it’s time for a glorious Battlebond Story Circle! Somehow we just never did one with any of the neat partner pairs, so it’s time to fix that! The most wide-open pair seems to be Pir and Toothy, so we’re all over it. And since we’re in blue and green, Dirk is in absolute Story Circle Heaven.

Also, we have a few announcements about the future of the show. Nothing bad, don’t worry! We’re going to go for slightly shorter episodes, set up a Discord server, and start STREAMING THE SHOW!
