Episode 356 – Banned in Sealed

Give and Take

This week the dorks are going over the two big things that happened in the last few days.  First up is the Banned & Restricted List update. I know, I know, we’re a casual podcast and this shouldn’t really matter to us, but it does. Chewie doesn’t even play tournament Magic and he has very strong opinions on the matter, probably because he holds the DCI to a higher standard than they hold themselves. But there’s plenty of good discussion about the big news since Modern, Legacy, and Vintage all had big changes.

Then we have to talk about the Fate Reforged Prerelease! Three of us each went to one prerelease apiece. We played Temur, Abzan, and Sultai! Some of us did better than others, of course. But we’ll tell you all about it, then we’ll go over some cards that were great, or better than we thought, or whatever. Hopefully our technical difficulties this week don’t bleed over into the episode too much!

Episode 355 – Zigzag Muttdraggers

Zigzag Muttdragger

Fate Reforged has been revealed in its entirety. So as per usual, we spend this episode poking around the Card Image Gallery pointing out all the cool stuff from the rest of the set. Of course we have to figure out what we’re going to play at the prerelease too while we’re at it. Oddly enough, we’re all leaning towards one clan. Can you guess which one?

We also spend some time at the beginning rambling pointlessly about some potential upcoming bannings or unbannings, but what do we know?

Episode 354 – Turtle Moose Human – I Win!

Turtle Moose Human

It’s preview season! That means we brought Bill (Squee) on, as is tradition. We start with a look at the newly-revealed Clash Packs, which are full of nifty rares and new art. And from there we move directly to the previews. There are dragon cycles, ridiculous cards, proto-Khans, non-legendary mythics, a spider-elephant, broken windows, and butt-fighting. Hope everyone enjoys!

Episode 353 – We Totally Showed Up This Week

Manifesting Dorks

It’s the first week of Fate Reforged previews, and none of us are completely with it. Seriously, we can’t seem to get our words working properly. We’re bad at this game.

As we usually do during the first week, we begin with the mechanics of the new set! So of course we spent a nice long time on Manifest, which is easily one of the most interesting Magic mechanics in recent memory, possibly ever. From the mechanics we move on to the rest of the Card Image Gallery and hit up every card that was listed there at the time!

Be prepared for lots of Back to the Future references this episode. Seriously, we refer to Khans as the beginning of the film’s version of 1985, Fate Reforged as 1955, and Dragons as end of the film’s 1985. If you haven’t seen the first movie, I HIGHLY recommend you look it up. Not because of this episode, but because it’s FREAKIN’ AWESOME!
