The dorks are live from the Amonkhet prerelease! Who did well? Who went undefeated? Who’s the slow player? Who opened a shiny new Invocation? Who spat processed chicken parts at the person sitting next to them? Just how sexy is Sexy Jarod? All these answers (except the last one) and more are waiting in this very episode, recorded live from Lucky’s Card Shop in Greensboro, NC!
We spent the last two episodes telling you all about these decks, it’s high time that we actually play them!
The dorks gathered at Brian’s house just before the American Thanksgiving holiday to fool around, eat chili, and play some Magic! And since Mike picked up all the new Commander decks we just had to record a game with them, you know? Otherwise we’d have broken the streak, and we just can’t have that.

The dorks have ventured out into the world to record this episode! We attended the Kaladesh Prerelease at House of Cards in Winston-Salem NC and brought the trusty digital recorder with us! You’ll get our reactions to the mechanics and cards immediately after we have them, and you’ll get to hear all about how we did at the event! Spoiler alert: it was awesome!
Apologies as usual for the way Brian holds the recorder and thus the way it sounds. He’s bad at this game.
The last time the dorks gathered to play some Magic I brought along my camera! Why? I dunno, I just thought it would be cool to record some random nonsense that went on throughout the day. And so that’s what I did! And it was fun!
You’ll get snippets of us with non-Magic games, a bit of Magic, why we hate Mike, how adorable Sam is, Brian shucking (but not jiving), Dirk being Dirk, a fair amount of me driving, and some Arena of the Planeswalkers too!
A few weeks ago the dorks all gathered at Brian’s house to play some Magic! And since we weren’t able to record this week for various reasons, you get to hear it now. Yay!
On this episode we began with a game of Commander Planechase. It went for just about an hour and was a fun and (relatively) fast game! After that, we decided to just say screw it and do another one. But this time Brian had the idea that we should each pick a deck built by someone else! So Brian & Chewie swapped decks, Mike & Dirk traded, and we went at it with an unfamiliar deck. This game was slightly more epic in length (about 2 hours) but I don’t remember it dragging or anything like that.
So strap in and enjoy a bunch of dorks playing Magic, picking on each other, giggling incessantly, and just having a good time. This is our first live episode with the new microphone, and I really think it turned out well. Let us know what you think!
