The dorks have a fun little episode this week, even though Dirk is missing. For…reasons. Also, we weren’t able to live stream this episode because of some bizarre issues. Sorry about that.
We begin with some news, some of which is real and some of which Brian may have found in questionable corners of the internet. Then it’s time for another of Brian’s Magic Mad Libs, which are always a hoot. Even though there are only two of us to give him cards, we still managed to make it pretty funny.
From there we go on to what we have decided to call a Flavor Fight! We’ve got a bracket of creatures ready to face off in a battle of Vorthosian proportions! This one got a little out of hand since I was kind of delirious when I made up the bracket. But bear with us! It is, as the title says, an epic flavor fight!
And don’t forget, next week we finally get to show our FIVE War of the Spark preview cards as part of that day’s scene! For more information there’s a link down below!
Oh, and I was watching the Mythic Invitational while doing the editing, so if there are any problems I apologize.Continue reading
The dorks begin with an oddly appropriate Magic Mad Lib (written by Chewie this time!) and then dive into another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home. To follow up last week’s Theros episode we decided to go to the OTHER plane where the gods are definitely real and you can totally talk to them: Amonkhet.
It turns out the Amonkhet discussion is really…weird. Compared to other planes, Amonkhet really doesn’t have normal life exactly. It’s not really a place to live, it’s a Nicol Bolas warrior factory.
With the subject matter of the Mad Lib and the harsh reality of Amonkhet, this episode is surprisingly somber at times. But don’t worry, we’re still just as happy and dorky as usual!
The dorks are back! We’ve got an epic-length Mad Lib that Brian wrote! It’s seriously long, but the payoff is totally worth it. Just don’t deathtouch yourselves, please.
After that it’s time to return to a segment we started late last year! It’s (now) called There’s No Plane Like Home! We’re looking at how everyday life on the various planes of Magic might be. This episode we’re focusing on Theros, the plane based on ancient Hellenic Greece. The gods are real and they are not to be trifled with. And watch out for hydras. And those savage brutes, the minotaurs. But don’t worry, it’s not all bad! Now offer up a sacrifice to John, God of Toilets and enjoy civilization!
Oh yeah, and there are tangents involving Super Smash Bros and Kingdom Hearts. You know, because reasons.
The dorks slog through…I mean take on a Mythic Conscription for Fallen Empires! This is a set that is notorious for its lack of…well, much of anything. As a result, we’ll be looking at the entire set rather than just the “rares” and talking about a lot of tangentially related stuff!
After that it’s time to have some fun with another listener-submitted Mad Lib! This one is from Eric He, and I think it actually broke Brian at one point. Maybe two points.
Come join us in the future! The show is live on Thursdays around 8pm(ish) Eastern time on Twitch!
We’ve got a card to reveal for UMA! It’s Visions of Beyond! We spend some time wondering what that means for the rest of UMA (like, is there some kind of milling subtheme?) then go over the cards that were revealed via the Ultimate Box Toppers.
After that we’ve got a pretty sweet Mad Lib, sent in to us by listener Magnor Criol. It’s a good one, so thanks a lot Andrew!
