After some technological difficulties on Mike’s part, the dorks decide to forge ahead without him! We’re doing a Mythic Conscription for Visions, the follow up to Mirage. But where Mirage was loaded with good fodder for a Mythic Conscription, Visions is a little less…diverse.
But hey, at least we got Mike back partway through the episode!
Don’t worry, Dirk doesn’t really ruin EVERYTHING. In fact, Dirk was on fire for most of this episode. Like in Overwatch or NBA Jam, not like actual fire. Anyway…
This episode we’re putting Mirage through a Mythic Conscription. And unlike several of the Conscriptions we’ve done for older sets, this one actually has plenty of cards to talk about. During the episode we even dig up some actual recent evidence for why certain cards would be mythic! Be sure to let us know what you think about Mirage’s potential mythics!
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!
No we’re not talking about spooky stories, we’re doing a Mythic Conscription for Legends! And Legends is REALLY weird. Seriously. Legends was the third Magic expansion ever. It was the first set to introduce legendary cards and multicolored cards, so it makes sense that they hadn’t exactly gotten a handle on it yet.
You’ll also get to hear about how we survived the latest hurricane and Brian’s sick Guilds draft!
Seriously, Legends was super weird.
This episode was recorded a few weeks ago, but it’s going up now since we’re not recording this week! But here’s the hitch – it’s not a live episode! Man, the title is right – time travel is weird.
On this episode we’re going all the way back to the beginning. Not the VERY beginning, just after that. We’re doing a pair of Mythic Conscriptions for Magic’s first two expansions – Arabian Nights and Antiquities. Since the old expansions are small, we could easily knock two of them out. Well, maybe not easily. These sets represent the earliest days of MTG’s expansion design…and it shows. Be sure to let us know what you think!
