MTGCast #203 – My Level Up Brings All The Boys To The Yard
“You read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!”
This Week in Magic
We survived the Rise of the Eldrazi pre-releases this weekend and join Tom and Jack as they go through their limited experiences and the big surprise power of blue and Level up in general. Check out the official RoE visual spoiler, FAQ, and primer videos. We have a new Standard legal infinite mana combo with Training Grounds + Filigree Sages + Khalni Gem. Check out the BGS-10 grade Beta Black Lotus currently on eBay for a cool $89,000. The magic artist Daarken (Sarkhan Vol, Bloodghast, etc) is offering a downloadable video course on fantasy art creation. We also discuss the rumors of a big change to the eternal formats to help make them more affordable in the general and open it up to PTQ’s and large tournaments, arguably the cut-off will be Mercadian Masques block (link to wikipedia on the various magic sets). We have the official announcement of the paper deck versions of the Duels of the Planeswalkers decks. Last but not least, we have the top 4 decklists from the Midwest Master Qualifiers Chicago standard tournament.
We also explore the art of the first ever obese angel in a Princess Leia outfit on Deathless Angel and the new White morphiling.
What Have We Been Playing?
