Episode 4 – Tim & Two Timmies
MrShy gives the usual welcome – Nod to MMH and hello from MrShy. Hello from Renfield and a hello from our super special guest, Mr. Tim Willoughby, Content Editor at Magic Madhouse and WotC Coverage Man.
Section 1 – Your Week in Magic
Renfield has been playing lots, getting old friends into Magic and is starting a Commander league at FNM!
Tim has been drafting Vintage cube, brewing, busily surveying sites for tournament venues, wokring on articles AND playing old school Magic PC games.
MrShy has been painting, tweaking his Temur modern deck and having a little holiday.
Section 2 – …and now for something completely different.
Tim tells us all about the Magic Madhouse Pro Series and gives a sneaky reveal to some exciting news for MrShy!
Section 3 – No Money, No Problem!
This week the team have run together some deck ideas for playing modern on a budget. We decided to go with $200 by SCG, since on the major UK trade pages, this would cost you around £100 and even at full retail would probably only be £160-180, definitely within the realms of budget and actually cheaper than standard is at the moment.
DISCLAIMER: These decks will not be T1 – Manabases especially suffer in modern when playing on a budget.
MrShy’s Effort: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/the-jundersirables-budget-modern/ -ren will get this up on the tumblr too.

Section 4 – Been Around the World and I, I, I.
Tim Willoughby is a travelling Magic journalist, editor of the articles section of the largest Magic store in the country, maker of some of the finest mashups you could ever hear AND a huge fan of magic, with a lower-case “m.” ABS wants to know what it’s like to travel the globe, talking about the game. The pros you’ve met, the friends you’ve made and what’s so great about it all?
Section 5 – Closing
