The dorks are back with even more War of the Spark previews! We’re starting off with all the cards in the Story Scenes, because the story is the whole point of this episode! Then we’re jumping around to the planeswalkers we missed, the Gods (who were being previewed while we were recording), and a few other highlights.
And don’t worry about the lack of Mike at the beginning, he’ll show up partway through the episode. You won’t have to do without the beard for an entire show!
RE: the title – it’ll make sense, I promise.Continue reading
War of the Spark previews are upon us! And we just happen to have FIVE cards to show off! We’re doing something a little different with our previews this time, we hope you enjoy it! Yay free previews!
But first Samantha joins us for a Sam Quiz! After that it’s time to hit the War of the Spark mechanics and check out all the cards from the story scenes thus far! After finally finishing with all that we’ll jump over to the Card Image Gallery to pick out a few more neat ones before we wrap up this epic length episode!Continue reading
Not only are there more Ravnica Allegiance cards to talk about, but there’s also actual news! News that dropped on the day of recording, so we can get in there early! Ravnica Allegiance: Mythic Edition was announced, complete with a less-stupid way to buy it and more super sweet planeswalker art! And that’s not even the big news! The next set is called War of the Spark! And…okay that’s literally all we know, but still.
Then it’s time to dive into the RNA previews! these cards are awesome, the big-picture flavor is on point, the individual card flavor is AMAZING, and it just looks like a lot of fun. I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these. And it looks like good news for some Ravnican citizens since the Orzhov seems to be relinquishing their hold on everyone’s spiritual debts.
We’re back for 2019! And so is preview season! That’s right, it’s time to take a look at the entire mess of new Ravnica Allegiance cards that have popped up since our last episode. We’ve got planeswalkers, four-power fliers, and…a mutant. Not any special kind of mutant. Not a Fish Crab Mutant or a Jellyfish Hydra Beast Mutant, just a mutant. He was made from the vat of forearm juice, apparently.
Also at the end there’s a brief explanation (more of a rant really) about what’s happened to MTGCast. If you’ve been curious about what’s going on over there, this will give you a little bit of an idea, which is all we’ve got ourselves.
Ravnica Allegiance has started peeking out from the Christmas presents, so we’re looking at the mechanics! Remember this was recorded on Thursday, so we didn’t have the Azorius mechanic yet. Sorry about that. We’re also checking out the promos and whatnot while we’re on the Allegiance kick.
Then it’s time for reflection. We’re going to look back at Magic’s 25th anniversary, for better and worse. After trying to make sense of it all, let’s take a look forward. What are we expecting or hoping for in 2019? What are YOU hoping for next year?
Thank you all so very much for everything! We hope you have a fabulous holiday season if that’s your thing, and we’ll see you all next year!
