Episode 455 – Cosmic Larva For President

Woo! Cosmic Larva in 2020! It’s got to be better than the Desecration Elemental, right? Guys?

In this episode we’re finishing off our look at Modern Masters 2017! The whole set looks like a lot of fun to draft. There are a few more rarity shifts to discuss, looking at how the overall strategies of each allied color pair overlap with each other, and more jaw-dropping and reminiscing. Ah yes, good stuff.

But that’s not all! After that we’re doing another Mythic Conscription, this time for the oddball final set of the Mirrodin block, Fifth Dawn! With its Beacons, Bringers, Sunburst, and assorted nonsense, what’s going to be mythic? What’s fine as a rare? How much disagreement can you fit into one episode? Why does Mike REALLY play Magic the way he does? Let’s find out!

Episode 454 – This Set Is Insane!

No really. Have you seen the cards in Modern Masters 2017? It’s completely bonkers. They’ve pulled out all the stops with this one, presumably to make up for the last two Masters sets. We’re just diving right in and looking at all the stuff that has been revealed thus far, with plenty of talk about rarity shifts up and down. It’s a fun one for remembering the amazing cards that defined their respective Standard environments back in the day!

Episode 453 – The Lich’s Tome

Not sure why we’re talking about television shows at the beginning. We’re just weird.

We begin the actual show by thinking about some things that may or may not (and also almost certainly won’t) be in Modern Masters 2017. It turns out Dirk might be a terrible person. My money was on me or Mike. Oh well.

After that it’s off to a Mythic Conscription for Darksteel! Could it be that none of the colored cards are mythic? And just all the artifacts? Maybe, I dunno. There are some pretty good discussions about cards with weird abilities, excessive power levels, and misery. Mispronunciations may or may not be a thing in this episode too.

Episode 281 – Look at All Those Previews!

We have an amazing episode lined up for you this time!  We’re going all the way back to the first Ravnica block so we can compare it to…wait, what?

Oh, never mind.  There’s an entire set of Modern Masters and a fair bit of Magic 2014 previews to discuss.  So I guess we’ll do that instead.  Do enjoy!

There’s also a pretty funny No Shyfts too.  Here’s that link: http://www.5colorcontrol.com/noshyfts/?p=611

Episode 280 – New Legendary Masters That Are…Modern?

Modern Masters Tarmogoyf

The dorks are back! After inadvertantly taking a couple of weeks off, we are back with a vengeance.  Of course, there’s plenty of big news that has popped up in our absence.  Since Brian loves Maze’s End so much, we had to talk about the Maze’s End deck that did so well at Pro Tour: Dragon’s Maze. There was a big preview of the rules update that is coming up in Magic 2014. Legend rules, playing lands, sideboards…all kinds of stuff.  We cover it all.

Since we last recorded, they’ve started previewing cards from Modern Masters.  So of course, we’re covering the cards that Wizards has previewed.  At this time this was recorded, only 3 days of previews had gone by, so there aren’t terribly many just yet. Just wait for next episode though!
