This week Josh Krause (@OriginalMtgArt) returns to talk about his classic art tokens/playmats kickstarter in depth. We recorded this on the eve of the launch and it funded in hours and is well on its way to the $60k stretch goal, so I don’t feel so bad about being late getting the ep out the door. (I do feel bad for you, our dear listeners). We also talk about Volkan Baga Vintage Artist Constructed, an interesting new Wizards job posting related to making GPs into Conventions. We also talk about what were then rumors of Eternal Masters. I think we put Jack to sleep too. At the end Jeff talks a bit about playing LEGACY at FNM!

This cast was also recorded before we learned about the passing of two pillars of Magic art, Christopher Rush and Wayne England. We’ll talk at more length about them on a future episode but in the meantime there are GoFundMe’s setup by their agents to help pay for their memorial services and help their families.
