Episode 78 – Dominaria in Modern Week 1

The first week of Dominaria’s Modern legality was very eventful. Cards from the new set are popping up everywhere!

Adam over at Brew City MTG broke Teshar already so we run that down.

We talk about SCG Atlanta, switching decks, picking land destruction, a sweet Dominaria Spice Rack card and more!

Episode 77 – Dominaria Modern Set Review

dom-146-squee-the-immortal

Nothing is sweeter than a homecoming, except when the homecoming is to Dominaria and the set looks amazing.

We (mostly Zach) winnowed the list from the 40 cards I picked to a much more reasonable but still hefty list of cards to keep an eye on.

The set looks *BONKERS*. Do yourself a favor and play it.

Episode 76 – Dominaria Preview Card

We have the pleasure of unleashing unto the world Torgarr, Famine Incarnate from the upcoming Magic: The Gathering set, Dominaria!

Torgaar_Famine_Incarnate_EN

Torgarr, Famine Incarnate

6BB

Legendary Creature — Avatar

As an additional cost to cast this spell, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. This spell costs {2} less to cast for each creature sacrificed this way.

When Torgaar, Famine Incarnate enters the battlefield, up to one target player’s life total becomes half their starting life total, rounded down.

7/6
We cover some possible homes in Standard, Brawl, a fair Modern shell and, of course, a few spicy takes on ways to combo off with some sweet older cards!

Episode 75.5 – Dominaria Spoiler Minisode

* This episode is ALL spoilers so if you are avoiding them, don’t listen to this for a few weeks *

A bunch of Dominaria got spoiled due to an internal mix up. Normally we don’t discuss leaks but in this case since the information wasn’t stolen or anything and the doc ended up being posted officially we will hit some of what caught our eye.

(Spoiler of the spoiler: the set looks insane!)

Also we did something a little different for the mastering and editing of this episode so any feedback about the audio quality, editing, etc. would be greatly appreciated. If you don’t notice a difference or it doesn’t matter to you, we’d like to hear that too.  Thanks!

 

Episode 75 – Everything Bloodbraid Elf

* This episode contains ZERO talk about Dominaria leaks/cards *

Sometimes we hit, sometimes we miss. Turns out Jace is kinda meh and Bloodbraid Elf is our new overlord!

Jund is back in a big way but is that the best home…? Elves, Goblins, decks, and a weird Spice Rack card.

Episode 73 – Modern Pro Tour AFTERMATH

Modern Pro Tour happened. Lantern won. How did we get there? Where are we now? What even is life?

We go over the Pro Tour results, review the nuts and bolts of Lantern, strategies for successful sideboarding and as a special treat, since this was (obviously) recorded prior to the B&R you get to listen to our 25% correct predictions toward the end.

All that and a charming Spice Rack card!
