I’m going to level with you. I don’t remember anything about recording this episode. I think it was a good one. We talked about a lot of non-Magic stuff, so, you’re welcome, I guess. We discussed Animorphs at one point? I’m not entirely sure that even made the cast. We talked about the weird new Wastes card (I think). I wish I could blame substances for not remembering but I literally just have no excuse. If you want to listen to the episode and send us show notes, we’ll send you tokens or something.
Magic sure is funny. GP Atlanta was a Commander 2015 release party. Wizards doesn’t want MTG Goldfish providing MODO match data. Patrick Chapin is a corner case. It’s a weird children’s card game we play and weird stuff happens.
GP Atlanta recap
There was a middle part to this episode. I just re-listened and already forgot
Personally, I thought Josh Lee Kwai (@JoshLeeKwai) from the Command Zone podcast was a great idea for a guest. He sent us an e-mail asking a great question about finance and we invited him on the cast to talk about it. Simple. Then GP Indianapolis happened and Ray Perez Jr got second place. Second. Not first, but second. Even Josh e-mailed us to say “You should absolutely bump me to talk to Ray” but that’s not how we roll. Am I the only one who doesn’t think you bounce a great finance guest to talk to a guy who got second place at a GP? We could have gotten Brent Clawson (@brentpk) the winner of the event if we wanted to talk about the GP.
Don’t get me wrong, we’ll likely talk to Ray very soon and it’s cool that the second place finish gets him back on the Pro Tour. Esper tokens looks like a sweet deck and Ray’s our boy. We don’t bump guests on Brainstorm Brewery. We had a great conversation with Josh about all kinds of topics. This is a good episode. Ray’s not on it but it’s still a good episode. Would we have bumped Josh if Ray had won the GP? I think it’s more fun if I don’t answer that.
