And the last shall be first. In this last episode featuring Russel, we go back to our very first session recording together. Appropriately, the subject was “Managing Expectations” and, frankly, I don’t think we expected to make it to 30+ episodes together. At least, not at that point. It is also a call to you, the listeners, to bear with us as we get our feet under us again adjusting to a new crew on the cast in the future.
In this episode, we get a little philosophical at first, but bring it back to Magic in talking about what Expectations mean to all the phases of playing EDH. From deck building all the way through post-session. Many of the examples in this episode made bigger appearances in later recordings, but you get to see their genesis here.
