Due to Chewie being unfit for recording this week, it’s time to get another live episode out of the can! A few weeks ago the dorks got together to play some Magic! We recorded the Commander 2017 show that went up two episodes ago, but we ALSO recorded some Archenemy: Nicol Bolas!
We played one game with Mike in the role of Bolas then we broke for dinner. It was delicious, in case you’re interested. After that we fired up the recording again and it was Brian’s turn to be the big bad. Those two games were drastically different. How were they different? Nope, you’ll have to listen to the show to find that out.

Preview season for Ixalan was a little weird due to the big leak. So even though the entire set has been revealed now, there’s just…not much left to talk about. And since we were going to be missing Mike anyway, we decided to get a live episode out of the can!
A few weeks ago the Dorks gathered at Brian’s house to play some Magic! We played a game with the then-somewhat-newly-released Commander 2017 decks. We opened them just before starting the recording and shuffled up. Dirk was on Cats, Brian played Wizards, Mike was on Dragons, and Chewie was on Vampires. And yes, the length of this episode is accurate. It was an epic long game, but oddly enough there weren’t any of those miserable chunks in the middle where nothing happens for anyone. Nice. Let us know what you think!
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.
