This Week in Magic
In response to the change in PT prize structure, Raphael Levy started a forum called the MTG Players Union. Gavin and Derek talk more in depth about what a Pro Tour means to a CCG and if this really impacts magic as a whole. Mark Tedin and Anson Maddocks will be signing cards at the upcoming GP Vancouver. New big banner ads have appeared on Magicthegathering.com, rumors abound of larger financial concerns.
Planar_Guide posts how the PT prize changes are making him consider a redirection towards judging. Sieg101 lets Tom know that Gifts Given can be found for ~$20. Some awesome altered art by Billythefridge. And drmungmung wonders why we can’t buy a real-life plushy doll from the Black Vise / Stuffy Doll cards!
Stump the Chump
It’s back and we have a two-part Morningtide question, watch out Gavin!
We are planning our return to TalkShoe for some live radio goodness and the ability for you to call in to the podcast live! This episode was recording via TalkShoe to make sure the kinks are removed from the game.
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 75+ comments in one week on an episode, Tom will give away an Italian Legends Mirror Universe to a randomly-selected entry!
