Straight outta Vraska’s Contempt and into your ears, it’s Ixalan Fo’ Real. How has Ixalan twisted standard into a thorny cutlass? We answer your questions on such matters before looking at the main decks in standard. There’s the quiz stuff, the busta stuff, the hot garbage stuff, and everything GGMC as we reveal the state and US champions for the Good Games Magic Championships.
See you in PAX folks…
It’s all above ground like a post-hibernation rodent, but this is no groundhog day. Unearth is here, brand new and sparkling, straight from Brotherwise, to 7LH, to your ears. We have a new segment: Jaime’s Top Ten (with an incredible theme tune from Danul), Matt’s quiz, a winner for our Tokaido give-away, and Matt thinks out loud…several times.
Here’s a podcast to give all other podcasts +1/+1, it’s the pre-pre-release Ixalan spoiler show! It sounds like poetry read by a warrior named, Huatli. We do listener questions and give-away our last ‘Hour of Devastation’ booster. Aaron and Kai lock Ceratop horns in MTG Card Quiz and Flavour Text. As with all good Magic the Gathering shows, we have 40 seconds of 40K with 40 Kai. Big news in Neets and Twooze…and Hot garbage and Premonitions are a bust, for different reasons.
Do you like going for long walks in the hope of bathing with monkeys? Do you like walking into restaurants and yelling,’FUGU!!!’? Tokaido is here to fill these needs, and more. However, don’t get excited about the prospect of something…this zen game is about the prospect of nothing. Learnt something? …you may be doing it wrong. It’s the show about nothing: Tokaido.
It’s our 100th show!! We’re down a Kai, but up a Keayn with his resourceful return. Dr HOU fans rejoice! We respond to your questions, get a whole bunch of retro boosters busted, Travis is back from WotC R&D with a card (see below) that missed the HOU cut, MTG card quiz (it’s a real quiz), Flavour Text, talk GoT for way too long, Neets and Twooze…boom, boom, boom…even an easter egg.
Do rot do rot doooooooo!!!
‘Mr Jack’ with Mr Cathala. Bruno Cathala is back to tell us about London in 1888 and the terror walking the streets known as, ‘Jack the Ripper.’
To this day the murderer is unknown, and here’s a game that puts you in the role of either the investigator or the fleeing Jack.
Then a ‘Matt’s Quiz’ theme tune happens, Neets and Twooze with the announcement of last month’s game winner, plus a whole bunch of geeky opinions.
Please don’t counter.
For as long as you have dudes, I’m dead.
You make the sound of riffling, and act like you are winning.
But I need to kill your dude.
And I need to kill your dude.
Open fire, gonna tap three mana and kill your dude…
…also 40k, quizzes, flavour, hot garbage. Devastatingly good fun.
It’s time for a tale from the vale, Mystic Vale. Sleeve up, and bring the rest of your jumper, for a druidic clash of card construction. There’s a Matt’s Quiz hosted by Jaime, your Neets and Twooze, a winner of a copy of Isle of Skye and all your password needs for July.
Rule & Make’s ‘Hand of Fate: Ordeals’, designed by Barantas, just successfully completed the ordeal of Kickstarter. With that king laid to rest, we talked with Barantas about the cards Kallas is dealing him in life, game design background, and all those other odd 7LandHand conversation nuggets that pop up.
Thanks to Rule & Make for sending the podcast an early copy of the game. Matt and David talk about their initial play-through of this Australian designed and published game.
If you missed the Kickstarter, keep your eyes and ears open for this title towards the end of the year.
It’s a magic show with more segments than Tezzeret’s body armour. Live news streams in during the show about all the forthcoming changes, bans, releases, and the imminent death of Gideon. That last bit might not be true, but we’re reading it in as a definite maybe. Get your ears on this pod – someone wins a booster, and next month that could be you.
