MTGCast Episode 53 – Planeswalker, is it going to kill Magic?
“You read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!”
This Week in Magic
Welcome to MTGCast Lite! Some updates on MTGO III including expected release time, changes to the UI, and some common beta tester complaints. Main MTGO III page and the MTGO III blog. GP Stockholm is coming up on May 5-6 and features sealed deck competition. Rumors abound about the new card type for Lorwyn, will it be Planeswalker? Future Sight release tournaments are May 4-6 and are your last chance to get the cool foil Storm Entity promo. Future Sight is now draftable on CCGdecks.com. We also briefly discuss what happened with last weeks episode and the future of MTGCast.
G.O. – Online magic client has been updated, can use MWS card images. Used to play other human players online (e.g. on magic-league.com)
MTGForge – Allows you to play Magic against a computer opponent using all the rules of a real game, currently 350 cards available. Can play constructed, sealed and draft. Does not allow play against human opponents.
Magic-Project – Java-based client to play against human opponents. Enforces some basic rules and has some very cool options regarding card information and images.
I plan to hand out a promo for Ah-Hoy at Worlds 2007 and would like to use the new “future shifted” card frame. Question for the listeners, what is a pirate of the future? Space pirate, digital hacker pirate, something else entirely cool? Let me know by emailing me at email@example.com
Preview card of the week: Tortuga, Pirate’s Paradise
