Magic Monday: Standard May Experience Some Slight Turbulence then…Explode

It’s been a bonkers couple of weeks for MTG with the dominance of the Aetherworks Marvel archetype in Standard getting attention in many Geekly circles. Devon, Mark and Stew deconstructed the Aetherworks phenomenon and muse about the role of the WotC’s new R&D team. Szpirs is surprised by spoilers for Commander 2017! It’s a gorram whirlwind on this Magic Monday


Magic Monday: Ain’t No Party Like a Prerelease Party

Yeeeeeeeeee-haw, Geeks! Amonkhet has landed and it is awesome!

Magic Monday: Amonkhetch ‘Em All

There’s been a week-long spoiler party for the upcoming MTG expansion, Amonkhet, and alla y’all invited. Mark, Devon, and Szpirs chew over the latest spoilers and the HUGE NEWS about what this set means for Standard – and the top tier decks that own it.


Magic Monday: Amonkhet Roundup + Trailer!

Welp, Modern Masters 2017 has been around for five minutes, so I guess it’s time for another MTG expansion! Amonkhet have you down to your LGS on Apr. 28th and the spoilers are droppin’ like noses off Sphinxes. Szpirs is terrified of everything new. Mark, Stew, Devon, and Mike perform an intervention. It’s all things Amonkhet on this week’s Magic Monday. #MTGAKH

Szpirs: Amonkhet! Amonkhet everywhere! 


Magic Monday: Command Decisions

Wherein Szpirs reads the MTGO Tumblr and promptly looses his mind. Mark, Stew, and Devon try to talk him down from the edge. Changes to the EDH/Commander format are mulled over and speculation about its future in casual and competitive MTG ensues. Will we see a Commander Grand Prix? Friday Night Commander? Much better ideas than these await in this week’s Magic Monday.

Szpirs: OMG, you guys! They changed the rules for 1v1 Commander! 30 life, bro! 30!
