It is with a heavy heart that I write these show notes, as Russel has decided to step back from Magic for a while. This podcast was his last tether into the game, and with the (seemingly) never-ending turmoil in the online MTG community, Russel decided he’s better off stepping away. We wish him the best (we’re still in contact, of course) and he’s got an open door back here should he ever decide to return.
This is not the end of the podcast, though, as Jake is going to step in and do the Commander Legends set reviews over the next couple weeks, and we’ve got some ideas beyond that. I don’t have a set-in-stone plan for a co-host yet, but things are in motion.
In the meantime, we do have a couple more old recordings that, with Russel’s blessing, we’re going to turn into episodes. This is one of them. We recorded this back in February, before the pandemic hit, and as a result it’s not as topical as we intended it to be. Also, it’s the return of Squeaky Chair!
At the time, we called this topic “Playing With Strangers”, but it’s as much about prepping for an unknown meta as anything. We do ramble a bit, and get into some parenting philosophies and whatnot, but we hope you enjoy the listen!
