The dorks are back! We have returned from our holiday break just in time to take a look at the insane cards from Rivals of Ixalan! Seriously, have you looked at these? There’s a lot of concentrated awesome going on here. The mythics seem to be nuts. We have a cycle of Elder Dinosaurs.
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!
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.
