Episode 467 – Announcement Week!

ep467 thumb

It’s Announcement Week for Magic, and wow they’ve thrown a lot at us! There’s a LOT of good stuff here! First there’s Pro Tour news and yet another Standard banning. Then we’ve got to talk about all the Magic Digital Next news, which is bittersweet but probably still good. Then we spend a LOT of time on MaRo’s Metamorphosis 2.0, which outlines the totally new direction Magic sets will be going in after Ixalan block. We’re actually going through the article point by point to explain why they’re doing what they’re doing. It’s good stuff. Then it’s time to touch on all the upcoming products. Most of them are pretty standard, but there are a few that will BLOW. YOUR. MIND. No kidding.

Episode 460 – 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.

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!
