Episode 533 – Our Ultimate Masters Preview

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!

Episode 532 – Where Would You Live?

The planes of existence in Magic are plentiful, and each one is loaded with its own flavor and history. Given that, it’s only natural that almost every playgroup has had a discussion about which plane would be the best (or worst) one to live on! The dorks are going deep on that conversation on this episode, trying to figure out what it would be like for the average everyman to live on Ravnica and Innistrad. If you’d like to hear more discussions about everyday life on other planes, let us know!

We finish this episode off with another of Brian’s Magic Mad Libs! And of course Twitch chat joins in on the fun, giving us some really great (terrible?) cards to fill in those blanks. We hope you enjoy!

Episode 503 – The Epic Mad Lib

This one should be a lot of fun! We’ve got Eric of Many Names with us for the first time in far too long! He’s pretty awesome, which is why he’s here of course. Brian’s got a really long mad lib for us, but he assures us it will be totally worth it. Since it’s extra long we’ll be giving him card names throughout the episode while we talk about even more sweet Dominaria cards! More sagas, sweet flavor text, awesome art…I can’t wait to go back home!

Find Eric on Twitter @EricMTGCast

Episode 497 – Topical Medley

This episode is all over the place with a series of topical…topics. Ahem.

The dorks are showcasing several of the segments we do here on the show, beginning with the always-adorable Sam Quiz. We’ve also got a Magic Mad Lib (consequence-free this time) and an Ixalan block Story Circle! And if all that wasn’t enough, we’ve also got a discussion about the addition of Jace the Mind Sculptor and Bloodbraid Elf to Modern! What an episode!
