  6. Ep. 002 Oh it’s Magic | Board Games Weekly

    Subscribe now via RSS or via iTunes.

    Hello games and friends! This week, Aaron and Dave sit down to talk about Magic: The Gathering. Here’s what they discussed.

    Wizards of the Coast has made some major changes to its release schedule, starting in 2015. Chief designer Mark Rosewater wrote an excellent article describing how and why the changes are in place. The guys agree this change will make things easier to follow.

    What’s available in the Standard format has been updated as of Sept. 26, and the Aaron and Dave list what’s in and what’s out. If you’d like to keep track of what’s legal, bookmark It’s a clean, up-to-date resource.

    Meanwhile, the guys dragged out their Standard decks to identify what’s not longer legal. Dave had to pull several cards, including:

    Radkos Cackler


    Doom Blade

    Meanwhile, Aaron lost Madcap Skills, which he’ll replace with Inferno Fist.

    Decked is a fantastic app for Magic players. It features a well -maintained database and is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows, Android and iOS.

    Dave found a fantastic resource on sealed deck construction. Building a sealed deck at a pre-release or launch event can be intimidating, but the “B.R.E.A.D.” method is quite useful. Here’s how it works:






    The guys go over it in detail, and Dave notes that his record improved after implementing it.

    Finally, Wizards of the Coast will release its 2014 Magic: The Gathering holiday gift box on November 14.

    Dave can be found at @davidcaolo on Twitter.

    Aaron can be found at Wet Frog Studios and Aaron Mahnke dot com.
