The Night Snails are in deep now! Escorted into The Order of Blood and Fire leader’s tent face to face, all while Bug sees his money just waiting to be snatched! What will he and the rest of the Knight Snails do? Find out now!
It’s time for our mages to put their mana where their mouths are. It’s time to enter…THE COMBAT PHASE. That’s right, it’s the beginning of a new regular segment, where Amber and Kenny will duke it out on the planes of battle. Only one can emerge victorious to claim bragging rights for the week. Today we’re doing a Winston Cube Draft, which is a really fun way to draft when you only have two players. Press play to learn how it works, and to see who will emerge from…THE COMBAT PHASE…combat phase…combat phase…
Babou sings a lullaby for the nimbwisp sheep and the party finishes up their job at Rainy Ranch. After receiving their badge for Rainy Ranch, they head to Cafegg for dinner.
Amber and Kenny kick things off today with a very unintuitive (but very interesting) Pick a Card prompt—what are your favorite (nonlegendary) creatures (that don’t share a creature type)? Would it shock you to learn that a GOBLIN made it onto Amber’s list? Would you be aghast to discover one of Kenny’s functions as a COUNTERSPELL? Haven’t had enough impossible revelations? How about learning the burning secrets of the multiverse? How about learning why Nicol Bolas would want to unleash MULTIVERSE-ENDING THREATS from their prison? How about learning why Amber finds this all hilarious? Is that good for you???
With the smithies freed and a pesky rival ridden of, the Knight Snails continue to put the puzzle pieces together on where the infinite gold is. All while pretending to be blood inspectors?
Modern Horizons is just over the…horizon. Eh. But it’s exciting! For everyone except Amber, that is, who is literally foaming at the mouth with anger. What is she angry about? It’s not at all clear! But we’re bound and determined to get to the bottom of it, and in the process, we just may discover that one of Magic’s most beloved characters is in fact a narcissistic psychopath hellbent on the protection of their own ego at the cost of any number of sentient beings they’ve willed into existence. Or maybe it’s fine!
Concerned about Rhonda, the party heads to Rhapsody Roads to turn in their job and gather information. Colleen flexes her rouge-like muscles while Mr. Becky Ann is his boisterous self. Don’t forget! His birthday is soon!
Jeeeeeeesus Christ we go off the deep end on this episode. In a new segment, Construction Zone, the mages try their hand at some “collaborative” deckbuilding, which is really just Amber talking about her (rad as hell) Goblin Angel deck, cackling madly at Kenny’s suggestions for other possible card inclusions while shaking her head no. Future episodes featuring the segment will include listener suggestions for decks to build as well as submissions of decklists. That’s right—you too can have your dreams laughed at by Amber! (You’re not alone.)
Extra Turns are short and sweet bonus episodes, usually with our quick takes on news in the Magic world. Today, though, is something even MORE special. We’re debuting a new ongoing segment, Fanfic Theater, where Amber writes her own vignettes of magic stories and characters that she knows virtually nothing about. Yes, this means inevitably Kenny will be made to sit through some sort of Sorin/Tibalt slash fiction. All in due time!
