You knew it was coming. Deep down, you knew. Once they announced the new Commander product, you even started asking for it. As the decks were revealed, you even demanded it.
Well who are we to ignore the pleas of our beloved fans? So here we go. The four of us gathered at Brian’s house along with John, The Fifth One. You might recognize him from some of our Prerelease Field Recordings, he’s been there for a couple of them. But we each grabbed an unedited Commander 2013 deck and commenced beating the holy living crap out of each other. In an epic three hour game (and that’s not counting the break for lunch in the middle) we traded haymakers, board wipes, and verbal barbs until only one dork stood victorious!
Which of the green decks did Dirk play? Which of the dorks almost lost their temper and all interest in the game? Who ended up winning the whole shebang? Which of those was a trick question? For answers to all of these and more, tune in to listen. Don’t worry, after the editing the game wasn’t the full three hours.
Hey look, another live episode! The dorks gathered at Dirk’s house to hang out, play some Magic, and try to remember what each of us actually look like. Oddly enough we look just like our cartoons on the website, only slightly less cartoony. Hey, I said slightly!
We played a rousing game of Commander right off the bat, with some happenings that happened that were seriously awesome. Okay, so I either don’t want to spoil anything or I don’t actually remember anything that happened. I’ll leave that up to your imagination. Either way is fine. It was a pretty good game though.
Hey look, here’s the episode you probably should have gotten last time. But you didn’t, you got it this time. So there.
Chewie, Mike, and Brian set out for Atomic Empire in Durham, North Carolina for the Magic 2014 Core Set Release. While there, we met up with our old buddy AJ, everyone’s favorite bowtie wearing L2 Cluze, and several other assorted listeners, opponents, judges, and what-have-you. As always with these episodes, you’ll be hearing what happens as it happens rather than having to listen to us fumble around for what happened days later. And I especially hope you’ll enjoy the talk with the guy who opened a truly ridiculous sliver deck.
It’s prerelease time as Chewie, Mike, and Brian head over to Top Deck Games in Kernersville NC to take on the ten guilds of Ravnica! Brian’s law-school buddy John was there too (as he tends to be when there’s a prerelease), as was our old pal Robert Waycaster. We’ve got the handy-dandy ditital recorder and we’re recording what happens just after it happens so you can get the full story without the passage of time to blur anything. Follow the dorks (the ones that survive, anyway) as they run through each round. Sometimes you’ll hear from opponents, bystanders, store owners, crazy people, and assorted dorks too, which only makes things that much more fun! There’s really not much else to tell here, so we hope you enjoy!
So here it is, the long-awaited Grand Prix Charlotte episode! Chewie is there with the digital recorder, capturing everything just after it happens! Mike, Brian, Bill (@SqueeGoblnNabob) and JT (@NerdPop140) are basically always nearby, and Jonathan Harvell, Kevin Baldwin (@TaureanMauler) & his lovely wife Angie, and Lyall Alfred (@NewSpectrum) make guest appearances whenever they’re nearby. We talk about our records, the decks we’re playing, the people we’ve met, the Goldrush, funny stuff, stupid stuff, how hungry we are, how tired we are, and how AWESOME the whole thing is!
There are also a few special cameos, most notably Mike Flores (@fivewithflores), Adam Styborski (@the_Stybs), and…you know what? It’s really late and I can’t remember who was on this show and who was just on the MTGCast part. So you’ll just have to listen to find out all this stuff. HA!
