MTGCast #133 – MTGO Layoffs and Evil Presents!
“You read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!”
This Week in Magic
Big news of the week is the announcement of a large number of layoffs from the digital games division at WoTC, and includes some well known names like Randy Buehler. Other MTGO news is the release of Tempest on December 8th and the return of card redemption! The “coolest” news is the preview of this year’s holiday promo, Evil Presents! Check out the preview of the Conflux booster package, product displays, intro packs (including a partial card image!).
Tons of great emails this week including some very cool Cauldron of Souls decks and an amazing Wild Nacatl public service message.
Gavin and Tom are going to Worlds and will be recording some great interviews, special podcast AND have a special RSS feed for LIVE podcasts from the floor of the convention center. Thanks to a new feature of TalkShoe, we can record live at the spur of the moment to keep you up to date.
