Top 8 Magic #341 – The Moral Victory of 16 Thumbs and 7 Toughness

Apologies ahead of time: BDM and I get distracted in this podcast more than once… By beautiful women passing by. You. Would. Too.

  • Greetings from Canada!
  • We may have prematurely deleted [card]Archangel of Thune[/card] :/ (we still got [card]Delver of Secrets[/card] right when no one else did!)
  • Stuff to do with [card]Spike Feeder[/card] / the world’s most annoying G/W deck (all the G/W decks according to BDM)
  • That time Mike dumped $160 on [card]Kalonian Hydra[/card]s (to wit: http://fivewithflores.com/2013/07/paying-the-naya-price-the-swot-of-kalonian-hydra/)
  • Mike’s previous #MTGFinance feats include paying $55 for [card]Baneslayer Angel[/card] and going 2-7 in a PTQ (2/7 is foreshadowing)
  • Mike knows nothing about From the Vault 20; Brian knows everything about From the Vault 20 / Commander / Hero’s Path / and why that soldier girl has no pants.
  • Mike does know what [card]Akroma’s Vengeance[/card] is.
  • “+1/+1 is basically deathtouch”
  • A bunch of stuff about the World Championships (go Reid!)
  • BDM’s iPad is wrapped in an iPad condom aka Ziploc bag
  • Mike’s Invitational decks / [card]Young Pyromancer[/card] in Legacy
  • Tom Martell claims to have the rules knowledge of a Level 5 judge (according to Mike) – Hi Mrs. Martell!
  • The return of TAUNTING JON BECKER.
  • Speculation on Jon Becker’s favorite play.
  • Did we mention Mike gets confused often? BRB another beautiful woman is walking by (“Isn’t this why we meet on this corner?” -BDM)
  • Sweet things to do with [card]Quicken[/card].
  • WMC / Unified Constructed strategies and tactics various.
  • BDM allegedly walks into a bar [between a sex toys shop and a burlesque theater] – YOU BE THE JUDGE.
