All Episodes

Old Man Kenny

This episode features good-natured griping, dubious flavor text, overpowered legendary beasts, and Kenny shouting at young people from his rocking chair.

Thirst and Greed

With Amber missing without a trace, friend of the show, friend of Kenny, friend of man and beast alike, the inimitable Troy has arrived to do a Cube draft!

Spark You Later

This episode features goblin rat kings, midichlorian power scouters, doing shots of “spark juice,” Italian Garruk, and some real fucking talk.

UNplanned

This episode features silver-bordered Magic, continued misunderstandings of lists, Amber’s brain breaking on air, and designing the Leyline of Uno.

Tree Elf Butt Orgy

Amber and Kenny try to find common ground as they discuss their top 3 favorite Red AND Blue cards. Kenny tries desperately to teach Amber how top 3 lists or even just countdowns work. Then our mages switch gears in a big way as they try to think like game designers and devise ways to keep giant multiplayer games moving.

Hasbrojob

 It’s @EvilDMJosh coming in clutch with a topic suggestion(??). Josh wants to know what is THE MTG OTP (that’s One True Pairing for you elderly folks out there). So we’re looking through a romantic history of Magic to find our favorite fan ships as well as subjecting Amber to a game show quiz concerning the truly disturbing history of love throughout the history of the game’s story. This actually leads to a good discussion about how (not) to do romance in your fiction.

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...

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!
