Episode 449 – Aether Revolt Prerelease Reports

AER

It’s Aether Revolt prerelease time! Since we all went to different prereleases, there were no field recordings this time. But don’t worry, we did grab the one and only Chris Lansdell to join us, since he did 3x as many prereleases as the rest of the cast put together. Yeah, do that math and try not to let your jaw drop too far. Anyway, find out how everyone did and what we think of the set in general on this episode! Yay prereleases!

Episode 436 – Kaladesh Prerelease Field Recordings

kaladesh-dorks

The dorks have ventured out into the world to record this episode! We attended the Kaladesh Prerelease at House of Cards in Winston-Salem NC and brought the trusty digital recorder with us! You’ll get our reactions to the mechanics and cards immediately after we have them, and you’ll get to hear all about how we did at the event! Spoiler alert: it was awesome!

Apologies as usual for the way Brian holds the recorder and thus the way it sounds. He’s bad at this game.

Episode 428 – Eldritch Moon Prerelease Report

eldritch moon

Hey look, a prerelease happened. Ordinarily that would mean a live episode recorded at said prerelease, but we didn’t do this that time. Instead we’re doing it old-school style and talking about it on the next episode! And since Dirk didn’t hit a prerelease and we didn’t want to bore him, we grabbed our old buddy Bill to take his place this week! You know Bill. He’s also known as Squee over on Monday Night Magic. Yay! So yeah, set looks pretty cool.

Episode 417 – The Dark Times

dark times

To break up the Oaths a bit and to give us time to talk about some of the other stuff that’s happened, we’re doing something different this week. First off Mike & Brian recount their experiences at SCG States (while completely glossing over the fondue).

Then it’s time for another Mythic Conscription, where we go through a pre-Mythic set and try to determine what might have been Mythic if such a thing existed. Because it shares some thematic similarities to Innistrad (and because it’s so small) we went with The Dark. Pickings are slim, but the set is actually really neat and features some of the earliest versions of things we’re seeing in modern times!

And of course we can’t ignore some of the big news that’s happened recently. There’s the Pro Tour, the Platinum pay cut and following apology, and the judge lawsuit to talk about. That makes the episode title an unfortunate double entendre, but oh well.

Episode 414 – Shadows Over Innistrad Prerelease Field Recordings

unruly dorks

The dorks are live from the SOI Prerelease at Lucky’s Card Shop in Greensboro NC! Mike, Brian, and Chewie are there to play with some creepy new cards, and we have the handy digital recorder so you guys get our live thoughts as we have them! We’re joined on occasion by Chris, a local listener who frequents Lucky’s, and Sexy Jarod, who is sexy. Like damn. Just for some flavor there’s some talk about The Beast, Chewie’s new computer, Final Fantasy Record Keeper, and the French version of Thundercats. We can’t get through an entire episode without some tangents!

Be sure to let us know how your prerelease went!
