Chewie’s Mom Opens Packs: Khans of Tarkir Edition

D’awww, Mom’s so cute!

Better late than never! During our Thanksgiving vacation, Chewie and his mom took some packs of Khans of Tarkir to Nana’s house. After everyone left and Nana went to bed, we turned on the webcam and opened some packs! And since Mom is so cute, it was pretty hilarious. Hope you guys enjoy!

Episode 351 – Not A Single Ruth Was Given

Not A Single Ruth

We begin this episode with another insanely adorable Sam Quiz. After that there’s a bit of discussion about the recent tournament rules change regarding revealing Morph creatures.

Then we return to last week’s topic, taking on the Jeskai and Sultai clans. We’re looking at how each clan’s constituent colors/guilds and their abilities work towards the overall goal of the clan. And since the Jeskai and Sultai are so incredibly different, this episode was a lot of fun!

Episode 341 – Khans Prerelease Field Recordings

Khans of Tarkir - Mardu

It’s Prerelease time again!  You know what that means – Chewie and the dorks are heading out to play some Magic, and the digital recorder is coming with them!  On this episode, follow Mike and Chewie as they check out Khans on Saturday at Lucky’s Card Shop in Greensboro, then Brian joins them for Sunday to have a second go at the format!

Find out which clans the dorks played as well as what lots of other dorks in the room were playing!  Learn why Round Two is Chewie’s least favorite round number ever!  Marvel as Mike plays a supposedly crappy Sealed card to great effect!  And listen as Brian tells you all about his midnight prerelease experience in one go!

Episode 339 – Looks Dragony

Pearl Lake Ancient

Be warned: this episode begins with another adorably cute Sam Quiz. Don’t listen to the first 3 minutes if you have a particular allergy to things that are “totes adorbs”.

PREVIEWS!  Khans previews are in full swing, and we’re talking about them all!  At least, everything on the Card Image Gallery the day we recorded plus the ones in the mothership articles that day.  There’s a ridiculous amount of cool stuff, including all the mana fixing you could ever want and lots of nifty rares.  So yeah, that’s what we’re doing this week, so hope you guys enjoy!
