I don’t have a lot in the way of notes for this week’s show. There is a brawl list and I will try and have a new one each week for the next few shows. I am really liking the format and think it will be a ton of fun to play with. I am starting to see the appeal of the commander format for people that are more versed in Magic than I am.
I also cut out a derailing conversation from the MP3 version of the show. The whole thing is over on my youtube channel so if you want to see what you missed that is where you want to go. But if not I think there is a good show with just the MP3.
This is my first crack at Brawl, think I was 2 out of 3 games with it.
Almost forgot, this week’s Hottie is Evangeline Lilly in honor of the fast-approaching Avenger’s Movie and even more exciting Antman and the Wasp movie!
Guess what? The show is up early. Well, what was intended to be on time but Samius’ terrible sleep schedule keeps that from happening. So fueled by rage and pain I am posting this week’s show very nearly when we recorded it.
A couple of notes:
This week’s Hottie is Vera Farmiga of Bates Motel fame. I let Dustin pick the hottie and this is whom he chose. Sometimes letting people pick the hottie is a double edge sword. Now I have to think about other TV moms and their hotness..
2: With the show coming out with a quickness there is 0% chance Travis will have a decklist ready and yep no list. Me either btws but that is like 1 of Travis’ 2 jobs.
3: Good luck at your Store Champs this weekend. If you don’t have one drive to KS and play at mine.
4: Make this team unified thing worth the hassle.
5: There was some Magic talk in the show but I don’t remember what as that was too many not sleeping hours ago.
Once again Samius is sick, seems to be the norm around here. Travis says he needs more outside, Samius thinks there needs to be less outside. Boom!
This week the trolls talk about how to handle a little draft dodgyness. The dangers of risky keeps and they look at the Brawl format. Overall not a bad little show for two people that either are ill or uncareing monsters or both.
Oh this weeks hottie is Fish boy.
We don’t want to seem sexiest.
Some who I think I am playing into my own joke here….
This week show is a mess of this and that. Upside it is funny at least.
More or less, yes.
I didn’t get into the bant or just G/W auras deck like I hoped. But I will see what I can do for next show.
This week’s Troll hottie is Pepper Potts. I wanted to find as many of the other Pepper gifs I could but other than this one they are all Gwyneth Paltrow. So weird for so many great Iron Man movies and cartoon shows and no other Potts. 😦
The only other real bit of the notes this week is a link to this Gree LD list on Youtube. Looks good to me but LD tends to make you real popular in casual circles so use it at your own risk.
This week show had a little bad brewing a run down of U/W Auras in action and some shit about how Travis can more or less open whatever he wants when ever he wants.
Also Travis was suposed to send us what he shuffled up after the show, so we got nothing…
This by the way is Martha Higareda, our Troll Hottie of the week. She has been around for a while but is currently the female lead in Altered Carbon on Netflix. Just an amazing show. Martha is an amazing as Kristin Ortega aka Bad Ass Cop.
This week we have a guest on, Good Hunter aka Ling Ling. I didn’t name him that send your hate mail to him. Mainly Hunter had a good finish at a bigger event for this area and I wanted to treat him to the 2 Troll experience aka mock him and question his manhood. Mission accomplished.
In his honor I let Good Hunter pick this week’s Troll hottie: JLaw.
I even let the pig pic the first Gif and this is the one he sends me.
We also run down the spoilers for Master 25. Yep most of the show was giving Hunter a hard time.
This week is more Travis and I just hanging out talking about random magic, Then it is a planned out show. Including the weird card combos that turned out for the last standard showdown. Including Overwhelming Splendor vs Fell Flagship matchup…
We also get deeper into the wish/tutor style of Mastermind’s Acquisition. I would promise to not talk about Acquisition next week but I don’t want to be an oath breaker.
This week’s Troll Hottie is Maisie Richardson-Sellers. Maisie has become one of my favorite actresses. She first fell on my radar as Eva Sinclair on The Originals what can I say I do love a good villain. But her role as Vixen on Legends of Tomorrow really takes the cake. I thought she had moved on when she went home on Legends at the end of last season but thankfully not. And she is back kicking ass and taking names.
This week we talk a little about how our PPTQ went last weekend, spoiler alert not great. I had a ton of fun but it wasn’t our day to take home an invite. We also talk about the fact that I ordered some pauper cards. And looked at how pauper is taking the world by storm.
Actual reason for looking at the shownotes: Stella Maeve, I have taken to watching a show on SyFy The Magicians. Clearly, I have gone back in time and am a writer for this show. Every time I think okay that is about as messed up as I can see a SyFy show going, I think to myself “But wouldn’t it be amazing to go farther and do X?” Then they F*ing do it. Highly enjoy the show and a big part of that enjoyment is some of the eye candy just being completely willing to go to the extremes.
Not going to say that, Julia (Stella’s role) is hot, even though she is, but that joke is just too easy. No, she is intimidating as hell finding her inner planeswalker right before kidnapping a smuck. The show is great highly recommend it.
We skipped last week as explained in the show. Sorry.
But this week hopefully will make it up to you.
A little eye candy from the PreRelease.
As I think most of you know I am a huge Suits fan. And while I am not sure where the show will go with the loss of one of its many female leads. I hope that our Hottie of the Week carries the show for another 5 years PLUS! Sarah Rafferty
What do we think of Travis playing fling at the upcoming PPTQ?
Sorry for the late post. I have been visiting Migraine city and literary got out of bed just now to post the pod. Mrs. Claus is this week’s Troll hottie as I am always looking for some sweet packs in my Christmas stockings and I know who fills out that Naughty or Nice list every year. You Really think that Santa keeps notes and tracks 7 billion people?
Before we get started Travis pointed out that we need a Disclaimer for Strong Languagethis episode. We are joined this week by Money Guy Sean and his mouth may have run over a little bit. Mine too but hey blame the other guy.
This week we really talk about the fallout from all the WoTC changes have had in the last year or so. Sales are down collection values are falling and I had a short man draft this last week. I mean talk about cats and dogs living together…
We also talk about the Christine Sprankle situation which seems crazy to me but I don’t know all that much about it to be really honest. But I love cosplayers and I am not a fan of bullies. That is on all sides. Two Wrongs don’t make a right. So let people know that you disagree but don’t be a jerk.
Jerks go to pain school.
Now for something pleasant, I loved the OG Charmed TV show. Okay mostly I loved the Piper character played by Holly Marie Combs, and with the reboot looking like it is right around the corner I want to remind everyone of this amazing lady by making her the Troll Hottie of the show!
So I am not sure how I didn’t get this show posted back when we tapped it. All I can say is that I have had migraine issues for the last few weeks and my side effects include memory loss. When in dought blame your illness. Covered.
This week we talk about how good almost every planeswalker is when left to work. Even super bad ones that are just the worst.
And this sweet little brew by Travis.
Also this week’s Troll hottie comes from Joey owner of Goblin Games and is Wort, the Raidmother…. Hmmm you might be a little too much into Goblins friend. So change of plans and this week’s winner is Jennifer Connelly! Other then her love of the Goblin I am not sure why Joey chose Jen here…
