THIS IS IT! This number is just ridiculous, so we decided to do something ridiculous to celebrate! We are joined by four excellent guests to be contestants in the return of Exiled, our deckbuilding game show! It’s like Chopped, but with Magic cards! We’ve got the original voice of Casual Magic himself, Anthony Alongi (@anthonyaalongi), digital alterer and longtime listener ALK Alters (@AltersALK), content creator extraordinaire DeQuan Watson (@PowrDragn), and the always infectious & enthusiastic Chase (@ManaCurves). This is a long one (of course) but it’s SO MUCH FUN the entire time! Who will come out on top as the Exiled Champion?Continue reading
It turns out Commander 2019 was too big for one podcast! So we’re back this week with our look at the Naya Populate deck and the Rakdos Madness deck! And we’re joined by Chase from Best of 3, who you might remember from our War of the Spark prerelease episode. She’s really into eggs. Like…REALLY into them. Like damn.
And I assure you we didn’t actually kidnap her. She was totally on the show of her own free will. Seriously!Continue reading
Commander 2019 is upon us! And since our Mike can’t be with us this week, we grabbed another Mike to join us – L2 judge and cohost of the Best of 3 podcast, Mike Moore!
It turns out that talking about Commander cards takes a while, so it turns out we’re only doing the first two decks this week – the Sultai Morph deck and the Jeskai Flashback deck. We’re going into detail on all the new cards in each deck and then taking a look at the reprints that make up the rest. Turns out the new cards are pretty good. Who’da thunk it?Continue reading
This one should be a lot of fun! We’ve got Eric of Many Names with us for the first time in far too long! He’s pretty awesome, which is why he’s here of course. Brian’s got a really long mad lib for us, but he assures us it will be totally worth it. Since it’s extra long we’ll be giving him card names throughout the episode while we talk about even more sweet Dominaria cards! More sagas, sweet flavor text, awesome art…I can’t wait to go back home!

Magic is venturing out into video games again! With Arena, a MOBA, and an MMO all in the works, we started wondering what other flavors of video games Magic would fit into. It turns out MTG fits into almost anything, from city building to fighting to 4X grand strategy to kart racing, with plenty of others besides. This is a fun one you guys!
Because we’re talking about many different video game genres I asked Cap, whose name really is Stephen Rogers, to join us. He’s from the Lair of Lore, primarily focusing on streaming a ridiculous number of games on Twitch. Like a lot.
Oh yeah, we covered all the stuff in the Valentine’s Day Mini-Announcement Day too.
