Modern Horizons spoiler season is out in full force and it’s a whacky, anything-goes, every mechanic but the kitchen sink monstrosity—but is it cool? Yeah, it’s pretty fucking cool. We discuss the power of nostalgia and whether or not Modern Horizons manages to dodge the pitfalls that Time Spiral fell into all those years ago. PLUS! Amber adds another newspaper clipping to her growing Charlie Day conspiracy board.
Coming fresh off a sweet and savory deckbuilding brainstorm sesh, our heroes are ready to dive back into battle, squaring off with new commander decks. In this corner, a literal trash goblin Charles Xavier looking motherfucker who’s ready to scrap (in more senses than one!)—DARRRRRRRRETTI! And in the other corner, half T-Rex, half gelatinous cube, and 100% gonna steal yo girl and yo graveyard—THE MIMEOPLASM! You bought the whole seat, but you’ll only need the edge!
There was no darker or more evil creation in all the multiverse than that of the overburdened SD card. We lost half of this episode to the void, but have no fear! Amber and I don our acting caps and put the collective casts of GoT and the entire MCU to shame with our genuine human reactions. Then we’re on to a big old debate talking about the Magic logo. One of us hates it, and one of us doesn’t mind—care to guess where we land?
Kristin finally got a marginal amount of her s**t together so here she is joined by Amber, Brandon, and Josh to discuss keyboards, prop food, and how cool it would be if they made a sequel to this movie.CW: This episode mentions suicide.
It’s time once again to enter the Combat Phase. This time, Amber and Kenny go head to head in a game of commander, and you probably won’t believe the commander that Amber has selected for herself. A cosmic battle ensues, featuring +1/+1 counters, golems, rhinos, Shania Twain, Twizzlers, and more shuffling that you can rightly imagine.
While at Cafegg, Arthur learns about a special tree from Wyatt’s paintings and Jake decides he wants to craft something nice for Mr. Becky Ann’s birthday party. Colleen notices a familiar symbol in the special mission she swiped. — Pssst! Hey! It’s Amber’s birthday! You should leave a rating and review on iTunes!
Woo! It’s been a minute since we last caught up on the Magic that we’ve been playing, and there’s a lot to discuss. Kenny’s been playing loads of Cube, Commander, and even Planechase(!). Amber has been playing some Commander herself, and speaking of that, we’re workshopping her first ever Commander deck on today’s episode! We’re taking the Built From Scratch preconstructed deck as a foundation and building it up from there. Tune in for our spicy modifications to the deck, and to hear Amber geek out about artifacts hehehehe
