Monday Night Magic – Episode 28 – ‘Who isn’t Dom interviewing?’
You’ve read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!
Gavin is gone again this week, so it is just Dom and Tom.
Magic Academy is searching for a writer to keep the article going on magicthegathering.com. WotC is also planning a large clean up of creature types that will take place over the next year. WotC is also starting a new series of tournaments called ‘City Championships’ in the United States, but these are old-hat to players in Italy. Did Gavin make up a Time Spiral card?
Dom is interviewing basically everyone who works at WotC at the upcoming Worlds in Paris. Scheduled and confirmed interviews are: Brian David-Marshall, Mark Rosewater, Randy Buehler, John Avon, Rob Alexander. Dom will also be interviewing Scott McGough, author of the latest Time Spiral novel, and would love for listeners to submit some questions!
Dom is also being interviewed on an upcoming episode of a fellow MTG podcast, The Magic Sock!
WWRW? (What Will Rosewater Write?)
Tom thinks MR will write more about the upcoming City Champhionships and the response those tournies have had in Italy where they have been running since 1999. Dom plays the safe bet and thinks MR will talk more about the Great Designer Search. Gavin is not here to defend himself, so his guess is that MR will talk about cute, furry kittens.
Preview Card of the week is Forbidden Tiki and we also discuss a new artifact creature type, ‘Ship’, and it’s keyword ability ‘Structure’. Gavin also submits a ‘preview’ card of his own design.
Combo of the Week
Gavin: Conspiracy + Scion of the Ur-Dragon
Tom: Conspiracy + Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder
Dom vs. Tom using some of the NEW Pro Tour cards? The odds are greatly against Tom, but who knows?
