This Week in Magic

Robert joins us while on the road back from GP Toronto and we welcome Chris Otwell back to the show!

GP Toronto

is this past weekend, and we mull over Scars of Mirrodin Draft and Sealed. Robert goes over his great list of interviews (keep an eye out very soon)
and the mystery of Canada’s greatest super hero, Tim Horton. Congratulations to Jon Smithers for winning GP Toronto and Brad Nelson with a #2 finish.
Mirran Crusader
is the apparent name for the buy-a-box promo for Mirrodin
Besieged. EvilBernd voluntarily takes down the incredibly popular deckcheck.net in protest of the WPN changes. The
2011 Grand Prix schedule

has been announced, and you can ogle the new sexy Maelstrom Pulse promo.
