MTGCast #218 – Casual Casual Casual Fun
“You read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!”

This Week in Magic
Wow, it is a fantastic (and mostly magic filled) episode with Tom, Jack and Marcel (starring his new headset).

Behold the amazing art on the M11 Game Day full art Mitotic Slime. Also, Heath from PureMTGO.com / MTGOTraders.com / CapeFearGames.com shares that you can now trade in paper MTG cards for digital MTGO cards with a 20% bonus! A boatload of Nationals this weekend in Italy, Australia, France, Canada, Malaysia, Austria, Guatemala, Romania, Costa Rica and El Salvador. Congratulations to Tomoharu Saito for winning GP Columbus (Legacy). We also discuss the DQ of Drew Levin for “betting on himself” and also the “pieing” of Gerry Thompson by Patrick Chapin. G4 does a review of MTG Tactics with some nice screen shots and also some concerns.

What Have We Been Playing?
Marcel has been having fun with Sarkhan the Mad and Mitotic Slime, Jack has been playing some pauper All in Red and Tom is oh-so proud of his new UWB EDH deck titled “The Mathematician’s Wet Dream.”
