Remember the planeswalkers that the dorks made for each other a couple episodes ago? Yeah? Well this episode we're doing Story Circles to craft a deck around each of those dorky planeswalkers! Pretty awesome huh?
Of course, that's not all we're up to. Oh no. Brian rambles on about Modern just a bit before we get going (weird I know). We talk for a couple more minutes about the newest You Make the Card vote (at the time it was a runoff between land and enchantment).
At the end, we have another amazing rush of gratitude for a listener who, for reasons that continue to baffle us, sent us some stuff. And I'm talking good stuff too. Like damn. If you don't believe it, head over to this episode's post on TheManaPool.com to see the Nether Shadow alter he sent to Chewie. It's totally badassed. Thanks for everything Lou!

This week is a bit of a strange one. We're short one Lead Rambler, so there's (supposedly) a lot less talking going on. We're also running out of server space on our hosting site, because Chewie's a big idiot. Don't worry, all is well now - until he screws it up again. The way we fixed it, oddly enough, was to record this episode. With space running low, we realized that the best way to fix it would be to record a really short one at a slightly lower quality and then remember to make all episodes from here out slightly lower quality so they don't take up all the server space. Duh.

Wow, is this really the first episode we've recorded since GP Charlotte? In that case, we'll spend a few minutes looking back at the GP. We also discuss the whole Cockatrice thing for a couple minutes. Brian points out that what you should be doing is don't be moving. There's fake new babies, a list of accomplishments (Mike is a failure, sadly) and the admission that we're all tired. Like really tired.

So here it is, the long-awaited Grand Prix Charlotte episode! Chewie is there with the digital recorder, capturing everything just after it happens! Mike, Brian, Bill (@SqueeGoblnNabob) and JT (@NerdPop140) are basically always nearby, and Jonathan Harvell, Kevin Baldwin (@TaureanMauler) & his lovely wife Angie, and Lyall Alfred (@NewSpectrum) make guest appearances whenever they're nearby. We talk about our records, the decks we're playing, the people we've met, the Goldrush, funny stuff, stupid stuff, how hungry we are, how tired we are, and how AWESOME the whole thing is!
