Prepare yourselves for a wild ride.
That's all the warning you get.
This episode, we're taking it back.
All the way back to our college days when we would spend many hours
of the night, many times a week, playing big round table multiplayer
Magic. To help us take it all the way back that far, we have my old
roommate Corey joining us for the first time. You may remember
hearing about him on previous shows, and now you get to experience
him firsthand and find out why he sticks out in our minds.
What we're discussing here today
are specific cards in multiplayer. More to the point, we're
discussing those cards that we just love to play in multiplayer.
Everything from the staples like Syphon Soul and Forgotten Ancient to
the finishers like Insurrection and Verdant Force – why we like
them and what makes them great for multiplayer. And that's just the
tip of the iceberg.
We're also going to talk about some of
those cards that we just absolutely hate to see on the table across
from us. Of course this covers the obvious things like Stasis and
Portcullis, but also the more subtly miserable cards like Fatespinner
and Telepathy. We'll go over what exactly it is about all these
cards that we despise so much.
Of course, along the way we get
sidetracked, erupt into fits of laughter, go off on tangents, and
pick on each other mercilessly. Like more than usual, I mean.
Apparently good old Chuck (one of my nicknames for Corey, Chuck
Steak) is a bad influence on us. Or maybe a good influence.
Whichever it is, I hope you guys get as big a kick out of listening
as we did recording it.
