Magic the Amateuring
By Magic the Amateuring - MtG
About this podcast
In a world...where Magic the Gathering seems too complicated...two enthusiastic amateur players break it down for the rest of us. Each episode, Maria and Meghan dive face-first into new Magic rules, cards, and strategy. Did we mention they're obsessed with this game? They are. And - if you listen - you will be, too! Unless, much like a Gobbling Ooze, you were born without a soul. Or arms. Or eyes.

On this episode, Maria and Meghan welcome Regional Coordinator of the North and all-around awesome judge, Jude Rob, back to the show to explain Rivals of Ixalan mechanics and card interactions! Sure, there’s only one new mechanic (hello, Ascend!) but there are plenty of interesting (and tricky!) things going on with individual cards that you’ll want to know about before you hit up your prerelease this weekend. PLUS: Maria crowns Rivals’ Cutest Card and Rob describes his perfect Sunday.  Didn’t hear a question *you* wanted to ask? Head over to our YouTube channel after 1/11 and add it to the comments!

On this episode, Maria and Meghan take a nose-dive into the wild world of Legacy as Maria frantically preps for the booth at GP Santa Clara coming up in January. What decks did she try out? How epic was her turn 1 death to Storm? And, most importantly, WILL SHE MAKE IT OUT ALIVE?! All these questions will be answered! PLUS: Meghan catches us up on Ixalan’s story, a few Rivals preview cards are here and there’s a *shiny new* keyword, and our hosts make new goals for 2018. Did they meet their 2017 goals? Find out!

On this episode, Maria and Meghan take stock of the year in Magic that was 2017. Do they do this with long, thoughtful, contemplative audio essays on Standard or epic poems about the diverse state of Modern? Of course not! Instead, they hand out the first annual Chrimby Awards! Do you want to know which card won “Best Hat” in 2017? Of course you do! How about “Most Emo Jace” or “Least Emo Jace”? YES! And surely you can’t say no to “Card Most Likely to Induce a Pun”! The 2017 Chrimby Awards is awesomeness distilled to its purest form. PLUS: A quick recap of GP New Jersey (bye-bye Ixalan Limited), new Challenger Decks, and a peek inside the mailbag that leads to a discussion of musicals. This is not a theatrical review podcast. …We think.

Magic is the greatest game in the world, so what could be better than playing it? Playing it with your sibling, of course! …And crushing nearly every event you play in together? Yeah…that would be pretty great, too. On this episode of the PROthering, Maria and Meghan chat with Standard Greats and Great Brothers, Brad Nelson and Corey Baumeister. Find out how they started playing the game together, what makes them an unstoppable duo, and who in their family keeps track of stats during big tournaments. Technically, this episode *could* be more adorable…but we’re not quite sure how.
