We begin this episode with a discussion of Avacyn, the first reveal from Avacyn Restored, and boy is she something! From there we move into the double-faced tokens that were given away at FNM (sorry about the delay) and the fansite toolkit available from Wizards, featuring some nifty images for you to use whether you have a site or not. Also, a big shoutout to Jeffrey Lombaro, who is @MuttZippy on Twitter, for buying us all lunch the last time we all got together to play Magic! He's a sweetheart of a guy and he's doing giveaways and stuff on Twitter, so go follow him!
And since it's Springtime, Brian thought we should talk about those things that make people absolutely miserable and unable to see or breathe, plants! Yes there are plenty of plants in Magic, we by the end of the show we'll have talked about almost all of them! We even asked Twitter for some favorite plant creatures, which we promptly made fun of. Okay, not all of them, just the ones that deserved it. But if you've ever wanted to know about the Plant creature type in Magic, look no further! Be sure to pack Benadryl and some tissues!
