MTG Potpourri #3 - That isn't a Frogmite!

Reddit

Joining you this week is your host Tom (@psgreader), formerly of Monday Night Magic for many years, as well as two esteemed co-hosts in Adam Styborski (@the_stybs) and a rookie appearance (and hopefully not his last) with Michael Robles (@michaelrobles). Our goal is to bring you some Magic news, some pro-level talk, random topics du jour, and a little entertainment.

This week:

  • We first delve a bit into the history of Mike at Wizards of the Coast and his current shenanigans. This includes some talk about the Surface 2 Pro and how Tom is the only one to not have one in the house.
  • Mike and Tom gush about the promise of the upcoming multi-player draft set, Conspiracy, and our hopes / dreams for the set. Keep an eye on the announced cards here at the Gathering Magic Conspiracy spoiler page.
  • Next, Tom is excited to see a product with Gavin Verhey at the helm in the next From The Vault set: From The Vault: Annihilation! Tom also summons (or enters the battlefield) his inner cranky tight-wad old man in his lament of never, ever seeing one of these at MSRP.
  • Lastly, Adam wows us with his knowledge of the current Pro Tour and some of its history when we talk about the high percentage of players on teams in the Pro Tour Born of the Gods this past weekend. Tom is still confused on why these are such a big deal. Check out the list of teams at Pro Tour Born of the Gods, and kudos to Lauren Lee for pulling it together.
  • Tom would love you to check out a great B-movie that came out recently in Android Cop. He also strongly urges you to watch the trailer for the upcoming zombie beaver (yes, beavers) movie: Zombeavers. Check it out on IMDB and YouTube.
  • Tom also dredges (heh, Magic humor) out some Monday Night Magic past with disgusting Mike with the actual reality of revenge crabs.
