Episode 108 – The One Where Zach Stops By

Zach swings by the ol’ podcast to give us a peek into what he’s been up to then we talk:

  • Throne of Eldraine Rare lands (and why you’re evaluating them wrong)
  • Stoneforge Mystic unbanning so far
  • Urza, Lord High Artificer (and why you shouldn’t buy Mox Opals)
  • Spice Rack and more!

  3. The numbering got a little weird because last month was a nightmare so the ep is introduced in the recording as 110. There’s 2 “lost episodes” that will be released at some point that fill in that gap.

Episode 107 – Banned and Delivered

Ari and I are back and things have changed for the better! Join us for a rousing discussion of bannings, unbannings, The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota, what to do when you hate Magic, possible homes for Stoneforge, TWO Spice Rack cards and more!

It’s a whole new world folks!

Thanks for listening and thanks for sticking with us while Hogaak blew over.

Episode 106 – Core 202020

We’re playing catch up after a very hectic June so please bear with us. This was recorded pre-Bridge from Below ban so Hogaak was still running roughshod over the format. Core 2020 hadn’t even been fully spoiled. Oh, heady halcyon days!

Anyhoo, Chris and I talk about the highlights and mediumlights of what was out at the time, what we were playing, a leafy green Spice Rack card and more!

 

Thanks for listening!

Modern Horizons Free Preview!

 

Huge thanks to Wizards of the Coast for our SNOWtally free preview card from the upcoming set Modern Horizons!

Art by Zack Stella. From the artist:

This piece actually came together from a near-identical sketch. Sometimes that happens, where the initial idea mirrors the final. I just knew that I wanted a triangular classical art composition, a small pop of subdued warm color in the background to indicate some distant dying fires, and enough haze in the atmosphere to catch that quiet feeling you get when walking through a blizzardy snow storm at night. I did sneak a friend in, as the front left dead body.

My print store is still being constructed, but people can reach me for prints at this email (zackstella@gmail.com). It will eventually be at www.zackstella.com – the website is live with art, just not a print store yet.
