MTGCast Episode 76 – Ruel, Fruitcake Elementals and Worlds 2007!
“You read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!”
This Week in Magic
MTGSalvation’s down-time lead to some pretty wild speculations from full Shadowmoor spoilers to WoTC conspiracies. Tom’s favorite Pro Player, Olivier Ruel, was disqualified at GP Brisbane after some kind of sunglasses incident. The second season of City Champs 2007-2008 will start in November! Some card scans of the supposed State Champs alternate art cards and the question is: fake or not? Worlds 2007 in New York City is coming up December 6-9 and is now up on the main Magic website. Also, a rather odd web comic about the Planeswalker, Chandra, is up on the main Magic website.
It’s true, Tom finally got a Fruitcake Elemental in the mail and he can’t be more proud. Check out his excitement in these pics of his shock and bliss. Also, a big thank you to this week’s donator, Jim Zwers! We also mention some upcoming network additions and perhaps a new episode of the Manacast!
Emails, Comments and COMMENT CONTEST!
The winner this week of the Unlimited Jade Statue is … Pringlesman!
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). Also, if there are 50+ comments in one week on an episode, Tom will give away his Fruitcake Elemental to a randomly-selected entry!
This week’s question is: Post about your favorite Magic Card!
Prize of the week: Portal Armageddon!
