It’s Aether Revolt prerelease time! Since we all went to different prereleases, there were no field recordings this time. But don’t worry, we did grab the one and only Chris Lansdell to join us, since he did 3x as many prereleases as the rest of the cast put together. Yeah, do that math and try not to let your jaw drop too far. Anyway, find out how everyone did and what we think of the set in general on this episode! Yay prereleases!

The dorks have ventured out into the world to record this episode! We attended the Kaladesh Prerelease at House of Cards in Winston-Salem NC and brought the trusty digital recorder with us! You’ll get our reactions to the mechanics and cards immediately after we have them, and you’ll get to hear all about how we did at the event! Spoiler alert: it was awesome!
Apologies as usual for the way Brian holds the recorder and thus the way it sounds. He’s bad at this game.
Hey look, a prerelease happened. Ordinarily that would mean a live episode recorded at said prerelease, but we didn’t do this that time. Instead we’re doing it old-school style and talking about it on the next episode! And since Dirk didn’t hit a prerelease and we didn’t want to bore him, we grabbed our old buddy Bill to take his place this week! You know Bill. He’s also known as Squee over on Monday Night Magic. Yay! So yeah, set looks pretty cool.
The dorks are live from the SOI Prerelease at Lucky’s Card Shop in Greensboro NC! Mike, Brian, and Chewie are there to play with some creepy new cards, and we have the handy digital recorder so you guys get our live thoughts as we have them! We’re joined on occasion by Chris, a local listener who frequents Lucky’s, and Sexy Jarod, who is sexy. Like damn. Just for some flavor there’s some talk about The Beast, Chewie’s new computer, Final Fantasy Record Keeper, and the French version of Thundercats. We can’t get through an entire episode without some tangents!
Be sure to let us know how your prerelease went!
It’s bonus episode time! Chewie, Brian, and Mike went to the Two-Headed Giant Oath of the Gatewatch Prerelease at Lucky’s Card Shop in Greensboro NC. And of course we couldn’t resist taking the digital recorder with us to report in live from the tournament! Don’t worry, we know it’s short. You’ll be getting a normal episode later this week as well!
Chewie & Brian decided to re-form their old 2HG Dream Team because they were seriously awesome at it back in the day. Mike joined up with Chris, one of our local listeners that didn’t have another head. We’ll check in before the tourney starts, in between rounds, and then wrap it all up at the end. We’ll discuss some of the cards that were good to us, some that were less than good, and general 2HG strategy. In this format, perhaps more than any other, you really are playing against your opponents just as much as you are playing against their cards, and that’s one of the reasons Chewie & Brian are so good at it.
A big shout-out to listeners Kristen & Anthony who stopped by to say hi! I hope I spelled your name right, let me know if I didn’t. And if you’re the anonymous sailor that met Chewie’s old man on a plane, send us a message and say hi! He’s bad at remembering names.
