lebowski dorks

On this episode of TMP, the dorks are giving a eulogy. Actually it’s another Mad Lib by lvl99luck, but it’ll make sense when you listen to it. Good night, sweet Rogue Kavu.

After that we’re off to talk about Unstable! It’s the first Un set in the podcast’s lifetime, and we’re all over it. We’re making sense of all the jargon surrounding Contraptions, explaining Rules Lawyer, and taking turns making Chewie fall out laughing. Join us!

Episode 479 – Interesting Cannon Ammunition

ep479

This episode begins with super sexy Unstable lands. Then we bounce around Iconic Masters and try to figure out 1) what exactly is the point of this set? and B) why are there so many kitties in the art?

After that it’s back to Ixalan! There’s still a lot awesome stuff here to talk about, including the new Vraska, terrors of the sky, and what weird monkey goblins put in cannons.

Episode 478 – Arena and Paleontology

ep478

We recorded this the same day as the MTG Arena reveal, so the first part of the episode revolves around that. How we feel about what we’ve seen, expectations, hopes & dreams, that sort of thing.

From there it’s time to dive into more Ixalan! There’s the new Cradle, the old dinosaurs, the promos, and of course, the Card Image Gallery! This set is a crazy mishmash of lots of things that nerds love…and also Merfolk.
