Modern Horizons Primer



On this episode, Maria and Meghan welcome Judge Rob back to the podcast to talk all about Modern Horizons! He uses cards from the set to explain Magic rules that you’ll need to know heading into your prerelease, sealed tournament, or draft. Even if you think you know all of the rules that will pop up in this set – you probably don’t, because there are A LOT of them. Be in-the-know before you throw(down)! Rob will be in the comments section of the YouTube video version of this show beginning this Thursday.

Spark Prere Primer



On this episode, Maria and Meghan welcome back Judge Rob to help everyone through all of the cards, tricky interactions, and new rules that you’ll need to know before heading to your War of the Spark prerelease!

What’s the deal with some weird static abilities on Planeswalkers? Which ONE card references a mechanic (but has no reminder text) from many, many years ago? Find out! Judge Rob is available to answer more of your questions as soon as the episode is posted on YouTube this Thursday. Get ready for your prerelease Good Luck High Five style!
