Debauchery: Yes or No?



On this episode, Maria and Meghan check out the beautiful new stained glass art for 36 of the planeswalkers included in the newest upcoming set: War of the Spark! What do SO MANY planeswalkers mean for Standard? For Limited? For ANYTHING, really?! Our wonderful hosts give us their predictions about what will and won’t happen in the new set, how the planeswalkers will balance the format, and what will happen in the story. PLUS: We get some insight into where we’re headed for upcoming sets from Head Designer Mark Rosewater and Meghan tells us the surprisingly adorable tale of the Rakdos cult on Ravnica.

314: Coverage Conundrum



On this episode, Maria and Meghan dive into the mailbag to answer questions from listeners. The big one? What do they think about the potential future of no Grand Prix coverage? Nothing has been officially confirmed (except the loss of text coverage) so our hosts answer hypothetically about a world where GPs fly far, far under the radar. PLUS: hot new Standard decks after SCG Indianapolis (Maria goes Midrange?!), draft tips following GP New Jersey, and our first Ravnica Allegiance segment of “What is This Card?!” that’s so great, you’ll want to yell along with them. SPECIAL BONUS: Meghan can’t form words on this episode. It’s great.

What cards stood out to them as great? Which stood out as terrible? Find out! PLUS: Thoughts on Arena’s Best of 1 meta game as we all get ready to give Best of 3 a go in the new season, a brand new set brings some brand new Movie Pitches, and Maria doesn’t like a 5/5 for 5?
