This Week in Magic
We discuss the announcement of the third set in the Shards of Alara block, Alara Reborn. It will have 145 cards and be released in stores on April 30, 2009. Gavin gives us a more in-depth discussion on how the new ratings system discussed in BDM’s latest article will affect players in the upcoming PT 2009 season. WoTC has 16 open positions that need to be filled, so check out the listings and see if you have the skills. More in-depth discussion of the new Wizards Play Network (WPN), the new Arena / Gateway-esque program, it’s first promo foils with alternate art Wooly Thoctar and Sprouting Thrinax. Tom runs through the details of WPN, how exactly to get the promos and what exactly are these new “Planeswalker Achievements” we are hearing about.
And an email from Filip about decks with more than 60 cards and potentially a female co-host!
We have new episodes on the MTGCast network (download via the MTGCast feed or the MTGCast.com website) of Planeswalk with the Proffessors, The Magic Sock and a new audio podcast, Spellcasters! The first episode of Spellcasters is discussing more about the Shards of Alara limited.
