MTGCast #223 – Duel Decks: Oprah vs Precious Moments
“You read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!”
This Week in Magic
Eric joins Tom for a Old Spice-fueled old-man cast. It is all about the Scars of Mirrodin previews flowing from PAX like a busted boil. Here is the unofficial spoiler, along with Wizards’ mechanic review and we discuss the awesome small infect creatures (will this affect EDH?), Metalcraft and its appearance on the long-awaited Mox Opal, the return of Imprint (which feels un-Imprint on Clone Shell) and the amazing new planeswalkers seen so far.
Pro Tour: Amsterdam was this past weekend, and congratulations to Paul Rietzl bringing it home in a star-studded Top 8 and Conley goes undefeated day one and brings home 22nd place in the end – interesting Extended decks in the top 8 with Mono-White Weenie and a new take on Doran.
The Hall of Fame 2010 ballot results were released, with three players making the 40.00% cut with Nassif, Kibler and Saito and some expected controversy (Tom feels there should be the addition of rounding up). Promo watch continues with the new judge new art promos of Wheel of Fortune and Wasteland along with the October FNM promo Rift Bolt.
What Have We Been Playing?
Tom is excited to meet some listeners in Jamestown, ND and also wonders if any players in Miles City, MT up for games on Tuesday or Wednesday of this week (Sept 8-9).
