This Week in Magic
Jelger Wiegersma wins GP Indianapolis and you can check out the Top 8 decklists (and note the Blowfly Infestation mentioned about 1/2 of the way down)! Some big changes to pre-releases were announced with them being held in small, more numerous locations.
The Orb of Insight is live and the fans at MTGSalvation have already compiled a bunch of info for you here. We also have four new cards to discuss, a new keyword and that MTGCast will be getting Eventide spoilers on July 3rd!
I was able to interview Elaine Chase (Senior Brand Manager for MTG) about the Shards of Alara changes. Also new episodes of Deck Builders and Proffessors!
This is a new weekly contest where I announce a question on the podcast, you post a response (or story) on the MTGSalvation forum for replies to the episode and you can win a card hand-selected from Tom’s large collection (and winner is announced on the next week’s show).
This week’s question is: Ideas for Block Blowfly infestation deck OR what card would you design if you won the World Championships?
Prize of the week: It’s a surprise!
Some great questions and stories this week. Highlights are someone lighting their opponents deck on fire with a lighter, a “What If?” WoTC reprinted some power nine cards as FNM prizes that weren’t tourney legal, AND our first voicemail from a female listener. And I promise, its awesome.
