The dorks are back on Trivester with Brian's custom MTG RPG! This episode is pretty heavy on the combat encounters and light on the narrative, but I'm sure we'll get back to the mystery in the next installment! If you want to know who gets mauled horribly out of nowhere, who is stalking the party through the jungle, and who you should have rolling your D20s, you're in for a treat! 

If you have no idea what’s going on here, please refer to these episodes for the full story of Heirs of Trivester:

Don't worry, Dirk doesn't really ruin EVERYTHING. In fact, Dirk was on fire for most of this episode. Like in Overwatch or NBA Jam, not like actual fire. Anyway...

This episode we're putting Mirage through a Mythic Conscription. And unlike several of the Conscriptions we've done for older sets, this one actually has plenty of cards to talk about. During the episode we even dig up some actual recent evidence for why certain cards would be mythic! Be sure to let us know what you think about Mirage's potential mythics!

The dorks begin with an oddly appropriate Magic Mad Lib (written by Chewie this time!) and then dive into another edition of There's No Plane Like Home. To follow up last week's Theros episode we decided to go to the OTHER plane where the gods are definitely real and you can totally talk to them: Amonkhet.

It turns out the Amonkhet discussion is really...weird. Compared to other planes, Amonkhet really doesn't have normal life exactly. It's not really a place to live, it's a Nicol Bolas warrior factory. 

With the subject matter of the Mad Lib and the harsh reality of Amonkhet, this episode is surprisingly somber at times. But don't worry, we're still just as happy and dorky as usual!
