A lot happened in Magic. A good Pro Tour happened. A good Pro Tour documentary happened. A really terrible Pro Tour announcement happened. Cards spiked. Orders were cancelled. Casual formats went largely unnoticed. Players are out for blood. Who can help you navigate the crazy world of this card game? We can, that’s who.
Marcel is gone but he is not forgotten in this bite-sized episode where the remaining team digs into the mailbag. Announcements are made, help is requested, e-mails are read, things of the week are picked. Just listen.
Brainstorm Brewery is getting a Shadows preview card!
The gang is joined by resident 5th Host Ray Perez Jr. (@rayfuturepro) to talk about Modern, how much Ray doesn’t like Modern, what could get unbanned in Modern, what will get banned in Modern, which GPs and PT events Ray will go to if it means playing Modern and Modern. It felt like that was all we talked about but we did like 90 minutes on this one to make up for not having a show last week. Oh, and no Corbin, so that’s a bonus [ed note: Not* a bonus]. We talked about him but it got dirty so that will likely end up on After Hours. Just listen to the episode already.
The gang is joined by Magic artist Aaron Miller (@aarondraws) to talk about the world of illustrating our wacky children’s card game. Ever wondered how Aaron got his start, how he fits into the community or where he has hidden squirrels on iconic Magic art? This is the episode for you. Are you going to feign being too cool to listen to the episode because you think art is for nerds? Shut up and listen, it’s still Brainstorm Brewery, get over yourself. You just might learn something. You might also want to support his Kickstarter campaign for custom tokens.
