This Week in Magic
Grand Prix Madrid 2008 has crowned Lasse Norgaard as the winner of over 1500 players from all over Europe! Faeries continues its dominance of Block Constructed. Talk and rumors continue regarding the Patrick Chapin reality MTG television show with probable filming at Nationals in Chicago next weekend. Blowfly Infestation gets an entire Building on a Budget article on MTG.com, but sadly Tom was not consulted on this king of all cards. Gavin wins his release event and tells us more about the craziness of Eventide limited, including the fun of SHM / SHM / EVE drafts and the non-fun of EVE / EVE / EVE drafts.
A bunch of new episodes up on the MTGCast network with new videocasts from Deck Builders, Proffessors and audio casts from Road Warrior Otwell and The Magic School Bus! Tom puts us his “Moldy Artifacts” deck for listeners to critique and is his longest running deck after being built just after Legends came out 13 years ago (to abuse the uber-powerful Floral Spuzzem).
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: The most bad-apples flavor text of all time!
(Check out Extinction for an example)
Prize of the week: Two packs of Shadowmoor and one pack of Eventide!
