MTGCast Episode 77 – States, Champs, and more for Lorwyn-oween!
“You read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!”
This Week in Magic
October 27th was the day for both Standard States and Champs tournaments! The promo for attending was the Imperious Perfect and for a Top 8 finish was a Doran, the Siege Tower! Gavin gives his experience and take on these tournaments and our own “Road Warrior” Chris Otwell places 2nd at States for Colorado, congrats! Results from States and Champs should hopefully be up around Wednesday on the official magic site. And BDM leaked us the locale for the next Pro Tour tourney, Hollywood!
Lycantivis sends in a great experience with the City Champs in Los Angeles and how it works in the larger cities.
Donator of the week is Eli Caplan (please excuse the spelling) and has some great comments for the show regarding Tom and Dom needing to get some more face-to-face time with magic. So, Dom and Tom will be bashing heads atleast once a week online with some Lorwyn pre-cons.
Emails, Comments and COMMENT CONTEST!
The winner this week of the Portal Armageddon is … mutantman with a great story with Topsy Turvy! A bonus prize of a Blitzschlag (German Lightning Bolt) to billythefridge for a story of Blood Lust, Ball Lightning and Berserk.
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: Your best tournament memory or story with bonuses if it was your first tournament!
Prize of the week: Akroma, Angel of Wrath from Timeshifted Time Spiral!
Gaming Galore with Gavin
Gavin walks us through the B/U aggro deck that took States by storm and even gives you a sample decklist!
