“You read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!”

This Week in Magic

Worldwake rumors and news time! We discuss the officially spoiled Leatherback Baloth and Celestial Colonnade. Follow the Worldwake Spoiler at MTGSalvation. We have the first 2 of 8 pieces of the Worldwake Planeswalker Chase showing it is the Jace Planeswalker and part of its +2 loyalty ability. Steve shares a Rise of the Eldrazi expansion symbol theory. Conley walks us through the Standard and Legacy Star City Games $10K and Standard TCGPlayer $5K tournaments this past weekend along with a slew of Legacy talk. We also get to see the official Happy Holidays 2009 promo from WoTC, Season’s Beatings! Check out the nice pics and high-res wallpapers of the holiday promos here.

What Have We Been Playing?
Tom and Steve discuss their multiplayer EDH game and the debut of the Experiment Kraj deck. Conley played in States, some Extended testing and finals. Lots and lots of finals.
