Magic Is Like Euchre (Other Analogies Are Available)

A wise designer once said that Magic is not a game, but many different games united by a core game engine. Let’s see what this baby can do! We’re taking a look at some of the weird and wild alternate ways that you can play this game, from Mini Masters to Mini Cubes, from Planechase to Poker. Kenny starts to look into the idea of building his own Mini Cube, and Amber poo-poos it. But! She is kind of interested in something called a Back Draft? Give ‘er a listen!

Affinity for Artifacts

You bet your ass we’ve got affinity for artifacts. Red and Blue don’t agree on a whole lot, but one thing we do both love are those sweet, sweet (mostly) colorless spells. Today Kenny has devised a devilish torture for Amber, a lore quiz about some of Magic’s most infamous artificers, Tezzeret and Urza. See if you can beat her incredible score! Then we have a good chat about the future of colored artifacts and whether or not they’re stepping on the toes of enchantments.

Unf*ck My Hand

Are you BEAST enough to ENTER THE COMBAT PHASE??? We certainly aren’t. This week Amber and Kenny do a Cube Draft, and they both draft extraordinarily medium decks, but hey, it makes for good competition. Mild spoilers include the following: questionable Toni Braxton song parodies, Amber not drafting red or white, Kenny not drafting blue, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria!

Give Us Pie Tokens, WotC

The plane for the fall set was announced a short while ago—Throne of Eldraine promises to be a magical land of fairy tales, knights, royalty, and enchantment. But so far all we really have to go on are a few pieces of amazing art. Who better to predict the future of what Wizards will do with this set than an absent-minded blue mage and his frothing, foaming, fire-flinging friend?

Fruits and Vegetables

Take a walk on the wild side…of nutrition! As our mages once again duel for Cube Draft supremacy, enjoy the relaxing sounds of Amber massacring an apple and singing about sugar snap peas. Amber and Kenny are both moving into unknown territory as the Blue Mage drafts goblins and the Red Mage drafts control. So which strategy is truly the best? Stay tuned for the absolutely definitive answer.

54 – Book of Spring – Dewwind

The party reaches the derelict village of Dewwind and poke around. Maybe there are survivors?
