Give us a listen!Read more »

Episode 517 - Seriously Toothy Content
2 days ago
This episode begins with a little bit (like, a seriously tiny bit) of Commander 2018 news from the announcement that came from a stream on the day we recorded. We get deck names, colors, and a few pieces of art. But hey, we go over all that for you! Then it's time for a glorious Battlebond Story Circle! Somehow we just never did one with any of the neat partner pairs, so it's time to fix that! The most wide-open pair seems to be Pir and Toothy, so we're all over it. And since we're in blue and green, Dirk is in absolute Story Circle Heaven. Also, we have a few announcements about the future of the show. Nothing bad, don't worry! We're going to go for slightly shorter episodes, set up a Discord server, and start STREAMING THE SHOW!

More meat less bread...
I love Magic. I am new to the game and have been playing since April. It is by far the best game I have ever played and considering that I am 52 years old, that is saying a lot. Too many of these podcasts fall into the personalities filling the first quarter (or more) with personal or comedic filler. And while a bit of that is not bad, that is not what I am listening to a podcast for. I want info relevant to what I am here for... Magic the Gathering talk. If I want to here someone being funny, I will search out a podcast of that caliber. Chewie is generally very good about keeping the flow on task as well as the others. Keep up the good work.

I move a lot, so I don't get to hold onto a lot of long term friends. For that these guys make me sad, but happy because it feels like they will always be there. Sometimes I think Chewie maybe a lazy and obnoxious and I wouldn't want to hang out with him, but really I'm the terrible, judgmental person and these guys have hearts of gold. Thanks for all you do and I'll keep listening.
