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 very special episode, Maria and Meghan welcome friend of the show and newly minted Top 4 competitor from Pro Tour Ixalan, Sam Ihlenfeldt! Sam is a member of the MtA FrienDraft Squad and had an absolutely mind-blowing run in his first ever PT. Our hosts chat with Sam about how he managed to 3-0 his first PT draft, what it was like selecting a Standard deck (Sam dishes about his cool Mardu Vehicles tech), and what it feels like to be on the game’s biggest stage playing against the game’s biggest names. During the Pro Tour, the fans came to love Sam for his obvious love of the game, his friendly attitude, and his underdog run for the top spot. You’ll love him too after you hear him describe what it’s like to have your dreams come true in the most spectacular way.

On this episode, Maria and Meghan are back (and better?) than ever after a weekend covering the U.S. Nationals tournament in Richmond, Virginia! Enjoy their sleep-deprived states as they walk you through what’s new with Standard (Maria loves those vamps!), how the Ixalan draft format is evolving (Meghan loves those treasures!), and what to expect when the world’s best meet at the World Magic Cup this winter. OH! Did we fail to mention that this show goes off the rails in a pretty major way? Well, it does. I sure hope you like long, involved discussions about barely relevant tv shows and movies because…let’s just say, you’re gonna get it. To anyone who worked on either “Early Edition” or “I Origins”, we apologize in advance.

On this episode, Maria and Meghan give their first impressions of that new digital Magic hotness: Arena. What do they think of the new platform? What could be improved? What rocks their socks off? ALSO: Meghan Top 8’s *another* PPTQ (she’s got those things on lock) with her Modern Promise Titan deck, Iconic Masters looks like a treat-and-a-half to draft, and epic Ixalan preview cards keep on comin’! SPECIAL BONUS: Find out what mascots Maria and Meghan had in college. FUN FACTS! Editor’s Note: We had some technical issues in this week’s episode (and we still don’t know WHY they happened) so a bit of Meghan’s Modern PPTQ talk is cut off at the beginning. Don’t fret! We had her record a new intro for the piece. Unfortunately, this means no video of this week’s episode as well. We’ll be back in full force next week!
