MtA Episode 27: Break Out Yo’ Binders!

On this episode, Maria, Meghan + Ben welcome guest host Dan back to show off his stockpile of old Magic cards! (It’s pretty extensive!) The gang also goes deep, discussing counters. But wait, there’s more! Ben reveals his skills at mental shortcuts, Maria identifies a MtG card that is the “orginial butterface,” and Meghan is grossed out by the “Marinara Trench.” BONUS: the whole team raps at the end of the show! It’s MtG at its whitest!

  1. Hey guys,

    I find it funny you guys didn’t mention Ambiguity. That should be all that should be said about a “counter” episode!

    That aside, there is a small correction. In 14:37 (in the MTG Cast uploaded version), Dan make a reference to “Populate”, which Ben followed up with an explanation as to what it does. This is actually wrong. Populate is the Return to Ravnica mechanic where you “put a token onto the battlefield that’s a copy of a creature token you control”. The mechanic that puts an additional counter is actually “Proliferate” from the Scars of Mirrodin block. The mechanic reads: “You choose any number of permanents and/or players with counters on them, then give each another counter of a kind already there”. Sorry, Ben and Dan!
