This episode begins with Brian and Mike regaling us with the tale of their adventures in the blighted, frozen wasteland of Atlanta. They went to GP Atlanta, in case you didn't know. Between the main event, side events, meeting some of you guys, and the prize wall they've got plenty to tell! Sealed, Draft, Commander, and even Legacy all come into play!

After that we're doing a segment we haven't seen in a good long while. It has gone by many names, but this time we're simply calling it a Flavor Fight! The Random Card button in Gatherer gave us 8 rare non-legendary contestants, and we pitch them against each other in a single elimination tournament! We're ignoring card stats and going right to the art and flavor of the card to determine the winner! These are always a lot of fun, so let us know what you think!

For our big EIGHT YEAR anniversary show, we're...not doing anything special. We're finishing up our look at the Commander 2015 previews! We've got the rest of the new stuff to go over and then we're gonna poke around the reprints to see what else we can find. There's plenty of discussion of random other nonsense, seemingly and unintentionally focused on 80's and 90's movies. No idea where that came from, but enjoy!
