The dorks are back with another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home! This time we’re taking a look at everyone’s favorite (?) time-travel affected plane, Tarkir. Tarkir is based on various real-world Asian countries, so the physical aspects of the plane don’t really change through the versions.
Of course, when you’re hopping through timelines, it’s not really the physical world you’re worried about. In the past you’re at war with the dragons and are in danger of getting eaten. In the Dragons timeline you’re subservient to your dragon overlords. And in the Khans timeline…well that’s actually not so bad. The one thing that is consistent throughout all timelines is that the Sultai… are just awful. The worst.Continue reading
The dorks are back, now that Chewie is no longer a walking corpse! And what are we doing for our triumphant return? We’re doing another installment of There’s No Plane Like Home, where we take a look at one of the planes of Magic to determine if it would be a good place to live. We’ll take a look at the different locations of Kamigawa, the different groups and races that live in those locations, and of course the constant threat of getting murdered by random Kami.
But hey, there are Ninja! That means nowhere else is nearly as cool as Kamigawa, right?Continue reading
We’re doing another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home, where we take a look at one of the many planes of the Magic multiverse and try to figure out if we’d actually mind living there. This time we’re focusing on the home of both Chandra Nalaar and the Inventors’ Fair. So fire up the aether harvester, hop in your filigreed race car, and decorate some giants – we’re going to Kaladesh!Continue reading
The dorks are back with another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home! We’re tackling (sort of) three planes this episode…and they’re all the same plane! We’re starting on Argentum, then moving on to Mirrodin, and ending on New Phyrexia! From quiet empty paradise to mostly good generic fantasy world (plus metal) to horrific war zone, we’re covering the entire history of the plane! Doesn’t that sound like fun? It’s actually not as bad as you might think! You know, until the Phyrexians show up and everything falls apart.
The dorks begin with an oddly appropriate Magic Mad Lib (written by Chewie this time!) and then dive into another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home. To follow up last week’s Theros episode we decided to go to the OTHER plane where the gods are definitely real and you can totally talk to them: Amonkhet.
It turns out the Amonkhet discussion is really…weird. Compared to other planes, Amonkhet really doesn’t have normal life exactly. It’s not really a place to live, it’s a Nicol Bolas warrior factory.
With the subject matter of the Mad Lib and the harsh reality of Amonkhet, this episode is surprisingly somber at times. But don’t worry, we’re still just as happy and dorky as usual!
