This Week in Magic and other MTGCast News
This week we dive into the Avacyn Restored Prerelease and discuss the cards, the mechanics, and the set and format in general. From there we argued about the Helvault and how it was or wasn’t good.  We ranted about the premium Helvaults and why people are so upset about them.  Then we offered up some suggestions for how Wizards could have potentially done it differently.  Everything else is listed below:

How the Helvault promotion worked (released after we recorded)
Jeebus’ letter to Helene Bergeot and Mark Rosewater
Avacyn Restored Intro Pack decklists
MTGO set release and Pro Tour scheduling changed (yes, Cube)
The Magic Players Championship Information (Cube and Modern, no Standard to be found)
