Episode 460 – Duster the Crash Test Mummy

duster the crash test mummy

There are a few bits of quick news that popped up over the last few days, but none of that matters. What matters is the full Amonkhet set is up! Sadly, you don’t get to hear us discuss the whole thing, because some manner of technical difficulty resulted in the loss of the last…hour? Or so? Sorry about that, I have no idea what happened or why. It sucks. Let the cavalcade of links begin!

Episode 448 – Howard of Anguish

howard of anguish

We’ve got to talk about the big news first, of course. There were cards banned in Standard for the first time since 2011. This is big. Like really big.

But after that we’re back to more Aether Revolt! Yay new cards! And poor, poor Howard. I feel for that guy. But he does it to himself, so maybe I shouldn’t. But I can’t help it.

Episode 424 – Rise of the Eldrazi, Part 4

rise pt4

On this episode we’re spending the entire time discussing the big Emrakul reveal for Eldritch Moon. We go into detail about our reactions so everyone understands exactly what we’re disappointed about and why. We really like the three cards they revealed though! We touched on a few other things, and you can find links to those things below!

Seriously, I’m sure the set’s gonna be as good as usual, possibly better. It’s purely a story thing. There’s nothing that can be done about it now, but we wanted to voice our concerns.

And don’t worry, we’ll have more RPG episodes coming soon.

Episode 420 – Eternal Masters Exclusive Preview!

absent art

It is time! After a long, long, LONG time coming, we finally have our own exclusive preview card from Wizards of the Coast! It’s for the upcoming Eternal Masters set (in case you couldn’t tell from the ridiculous amount of EMA previews from the last couple days). If you want to cheat and check out the card, scroll ALL the way down to the bottom of this post to see it!

After we get done with our card we’re gonna go over even more previews as well as all the announcements we missed when we took off last week!

Episode 417 – The Dark Times

dark times

To break up the Oaths a bit and to give us time to talk about some of the other stuff that’s happened, we’re doing something different this week. First off Mike & Brian recount their experiences at SCG States (while completely glossing over the fondue).

Then it’s time for another Mythic Conscription, where we go through a pre-Mythic set and try to determine what might have been Mythic if such a thing existed. Because it shares some thematic similarities to Innistrad (and because it’s so small) we went with The Dark. Pickings are slim, but the set is actually really neat and features some of the earliest versions of things we’re seeing in modern times!

And of course we can’t ignore some of the big news that’s happened recently. There’s the Pro Tour, the Platinum pay cut and following apology, and the judge lawsuit to talk about. That makes the episode title an unfortunate double entendre, but oh well.
