The party reaches the derelict village of Dewwind and poke around. Maybe there are survivors?
Thanks for special guest Josh Long for playing! Josh can be found on twitter @EvilDMJosh.
Core Set 2020 hath descended upon us, and we wanna TALK about it. Amber actually went to the prerelease event and had a grand old time showing off her new skills and dominating the fools who pulled up to the table with her. We’re also talking about some of our favorite new cards from the set. SPOILER WARNING: Amber’s list contains a red card, and Kenny’s list contains a blue one.
It’s a knock-down, drag-out, white-knuckle, club-thumpin, country-bumpkin, punkin-chunkin grudge match between two mages hungry for the crown. Amber is fresh off a cubic victory and she doesn’t plan on giving it back anytime soon. Kenny has plans of his own, though, but does he have what it takes to win what became our longest Combat Phase to date?
Today we’re tackling our first ever fan-submitted topic, one of the most beloved and hated tribes of all time—Slivers! Our journey into the hive mind takes us many places, and we somehow find time to complain about Lovecraft monster design, horror movies, and Changelings. Shout out to @AdeptXander—you gave us a really great topic to discuss!
We touched on Modern Horizons in an Extra Turn (our occasional bonus Friday episodes) right in the midst of spoiler season. But now we want to revisit the topic in a bit more depth. The set has lots of sweet stuff for players of all kinds—Modern players (obvs), but also Commander, Pauper, Cube, and even stinky Goblin aficionados! We’re talking the cards we can’t wait to shell out $30 a pop for!
It’s party time! Arthur, Colleen, Jake, and Babou experience the full force of Mr. Becky Ann’s exuberance, eat a ton of spaghetti, and play games. During the festivities, the mayor approaches them with a concern.
Echo Roanoke, of @echoroanoke fame, joins us once again, this time talking about all manner of people and critters and existential nightmares that dwell in the margins of our collective and social consciousness. We’re considering two questions today. 1) What cards have the most interesting lore that is never ever explored in any depth? And 2) How is Magic doing at representing the wide range of identities that exist among its players? Join us for one of our favorite discussions.
Energized by her victory in the Cube Draft, Amber once again seizes the reins of her scrap destiny to try to make a clean sweep. Kenny, however, won’t go quietly into that good magic night. He’s pulling out all the stops, leveraging the power of Teferi, Temporal Archmage, in a monoblue superfriends grindfest of a Commander deck. It’s planeswalker vs. planeswalker in this battle royale featuring giant spells from both sides of the table. Monored. Monoblue. Only one will emerge victorious.
