Vegas Cube Draft with Woodrow

I’m still down in Vegas for WSOP, but you gotta take a break from the tables sometimes and what better way to relax than a stressful drawn-out Cube draft on Magic Online? My buddy Woody joins me for the draft to offer his insightful commentary.

Rich Hagon’s Signoff in Written Form

He was soaked through. The reindeer were soaked through. The sleigh was soaked through, the ground was soaked through. But his giant red sack of presents for all the girls and boys, oh yes, not a drop of water anywhere near it. Yes, really, I mean it. The headline the next day: Sack, red, found dry. [Sacred Foundry]

“More, more! Give us more, Rich!” OK, Marshall, well I do have one to close.

So, I was at a GP recently. I couldn’t believe it, because I like to read at night, there was no bedside light! I rang reception, I said “There’s no bedside light!” They said “We know!” I said “Why not?” They said it’s ’cause of a new law, that says hotels aren’t allowed to supply bedside lights, but I was welcome to bring my own. “This is ridiculous!” I go upstairs. I put the TV on, I’ve got no bedside light after all. On comes this commercial (or as we say in Britain, an “ad”) with this little cartoon character basically saying “we can’t give you a bedside light, so don’t forget to pack one!” That was the gist. So I fall asleep with the TV on, I keep waking up, there’s this stupid cartoon character with this “we can’t give you a bedside light, so don’t forget to pack one!” It drove me nuts, I must’ve seen that thing 30 times. I’ve stopped watching TV now, I can’t bear the thought of it. Honestly, Marshall. It’s reached the point where I just started to dread “bring a lamp” ads. [Dreadbringer Lampads]

You’ve been listening to “Stand Up Magic” with me, your host, Rich Hagon. And remember, kids, Marshall made me do it.

Crack-a-Pack for LR 236

Brian and I decided to do a Conspiracy Primer show, which ended up being episode 236. As it wasn’t topical to Conspiracy itself, we decided not to do a Crack-a-Pack on that show. This did not stop us from doing one outside of the episode. Special thanks to Steven from Lawrence Kansas for providing the pack.

Limited Resources 236 – Conspiracy Set Primer

This week on Limited Resources Marshall and Brian give you a high level overview of Conspiracy. The guys address the mechanics, some of the cards, and a lot of strategy for this unique set.
