On this episode of TMP, the dorks are giving a eulogy. Actually it’s another Mad Lib by lvl99luck, but it’ll make sense when you listen to it. Good night, sweet Rogue Kavu.
After that we’re off to talk about Unstable! It’s the first Un set in the podcast’s lifetime, and we’re all over it. We’re making sense of all the jargon surrounding Contraptions, explaining Rules Lawyer, and taking turns making Chewie fall out laughing. Join us!
Roughly once a year the dorks take a look at media outside of Magic and turn some bits of it into cards! We’ve done video games, movies, television, and books (we think that’s all thus far). This time we’re looking at sequential art, also known as comics! From comic books to webcomics to newspaper comics, we’re covering some of all of it! What’s your favorite thing in the medium of comics? And would it make for a good Magic card? Let us know!
Oh, and there’s a listener-supplied Magic Mad Lib too! It’s from lvl99luck and it’s appropriately spooky!
The dorks have returned! It’s been two weeks since we recorded a show, and we’re dying to get back into it. We begin with a short Sam Quiz, then a long Mad Lib!
After that it’s off to discuss our Prerelease experiences. Chewie & Brian did a Two-Headed Giant prerelease, Brian did a solo one, and Mike did some drafting the following week. Do you like pirates? How about dinosaurs?
We begin this episode with a listener-supplied Magic Mad Lib, sent in by lvl99luck. We learn all about enchantment speed and refuse to name Balance. This Mad Lib is nothing to Murder at!
Then it’s time to get down to business. We’re following up the last episode and diving right into a Mythic Conscription for Guildpact. It turns out that the enchantment speed we learned about in the Mad Lib is a pretty big thing in Guildpact. Like a lot. It also turns out that Guildpact’s rares are actually… rares. So yeah, that’s a thing.
This episode is a truly strange one. Brian’s not here, he got sick and died since I saw him the previous night. We have a sponsor this week, Easy Roller Dice Co. We grabbed Cap from Lair of Lore to join us. We’ve got a truly epic listener-submitted Mad Lib. And our Flavor Fight has a dance number in it. Yup, it’s definitely a weird one.
For those that don’t know, the original incarnation of this segment was Mortal Instinct Fighter Calibur Vs. We use the Random Card function to find creatures, then pit them head to head in a single elimination tournament using only flavor to guide us! This time I limited the random creatures to the uncommon rarity just to keep the power level somewhat even. And it got bizarre this time. Do you believe in life after love? Do you like Hamilton? You’re gonna love this!
Just don’t click this, trust me. It’s The Slug from Marvel Comics.
