In case you couldn’t tell from the amazing title, the dorks are joined this week by our favorite Level 2 judge and Monday Night Magic cohost, Cluze! I can say that because Prillaman is a Level 3 now. Dr. Science comes on to help us take a look at the full Born of the Gods set before the prerelease. Yes I know it’s after the prerelease now, but give me a break here. There’s not much else to say, so everyone give it a listen and enjoy!

In case you weren’t aware, we’re still knocking out those Born of the Gods previews. We recorded this the day the FAQ was accidentally put up, but we didn’t actually do any of those cards. That would have been a really long show, and that’s turrible. As has become tradition during preview season, we reached through the internet and snatched up our old buddy Bill Bloodworth (@SqueeGoblnNabob) to join in the fun. Then we all ate cake!
Okay, we didn’t eat cake. But it’s still a good, cake-free, low-calorie episode! And blame Chewie for being whelmed.
On this episode, the dorks take on all the news and the first round of Born of the Gods spoilers! There’s a serious amount of bizarre news, from coins to a movie to a high-priced Modern Event Deck announcement. News you can use? Probably not, but there’s plenty enough news here! All the links are down below, so follow along if you want!
After that, we have a super secret special guest! So secret that we didn’t actually know about him until he was on the show! But out of nowhere we invited JT to join us for previews! You know him from our GP Charlotte episode and I’m pretty sure he was on another episode at some point. You’ve got a search bar on the site, if you wanna hear him again I’m sure you can find him. He’s pretty awesome, and so are the new mechanics and some of the new cards from Born of the Gods!
Everyone enjoy, then go follow JT on Twitter, he’s @NerdPop140!
We had lots of news to cover since we hadn’t recorded in two weeks. We took the holiday weeks off don’t you know. There’s the new planeswalker, the new card frame, and some other less impressive stuff. We’ll give you our take on all of it, no matter how lame and/or insignificant.
After that we’re off to our wrap up of the Old vs. New series. Since we covered all the guilds, we decided to take a look at the other aspects of the two blocks. Mana rocks, lands, overall block structure, that sort of thing. It’s actually a pretty good discussion, we hope you guys enjoy. That’s about it for the wrap up, we’re just shooting for a nice short episode to ease back into the podcasting gig.
You know, to be a short episode, the file sure is pretty big. Huh.
Proceed to Bane Alley, await further instructions.
We are joined this episode by Uriah Oxford, the progenitor of the CMDR Decks video series! Why? Because he’s awesome! And because we have the entirety of the Commander 2013 decks to talk about! But first, there’s a bit of other news to discuss. Mike and Brian have to tell us about their latest foray into FNM, or Standard, or drafting, or whatever. It was all of the above mixed together. Then there’s a new Duel Decks and Magic Online Vintage Masters.
After that, we’re off into Commander previews! We’re taking a hard look at each of the decks, checking out both the new awesome cards and the old awesome cards in each one. And there are some seriously awesome cards here. I mean holy crap. But that’s pretty much it for the rest of the episode, so we hope you enjoy!
