7/21/2019
More
Hello and welcome the SuperMagic Podcast. First, I would like to thank you for continuing to listen to our podcast and to apologize for the audio quality of this episode. Long story short we were unable to record in our usually closed off area and the ventilation of our recording area was less than ideal.

More
Hello and welcome to the Supermagic Podcast. This week we go over some interesting picks from Core Set 2020.

Storm Count 28 - Post Modern Horizons

6/20/2019
More
Hello and welcome to the SuperMagic Podcast, this week we’re taking another look at the last modern release for a while. Judging from the quality of the cards and the reception this set has gotten, I think it’s safe to say that we’ll probably see more of Modern Horizon’s in the future. Hopefully they’ll space it out better than they did the Masters set. Join us as we highlight some of the more interesting picks and see if Modern Horizons lives up to its potential and shakes up the format.

In total we are looking at over 30 returning mechanics and while normally returning mechanics are a good thing as it might provide more options for decks that make use of them, but is this a bit too much? Is it a bit too fractured for limited play? Join us as we discuss whether or not Modern Horizons might be too much a good...

Hello and welcome to the SuperMagic podcast, the Modern Horizon is upon us and today this week we take a look at what the new the set has for us.

Hello and welcome to the Supermagic Podcast, this week we’ll discuss some of the lesser known or played Planeswalkers at the uncommon rarity.

4/13/2019
More
Hello and welcome to The SuperMagic Podcast. Today were taking a look at what is probably the least popular and most overrated 2019 Challenger Deck, Deadly Discovery. It is a green and black deck that wins through ramp, recursion, and removal. This may be the least popular deck out of the four, which is not entirely unjustified, but it is still a strong deck and can compete with many of the new tools that are coming in the War for the Spark!

Hello and welcome back to Supermagic and thank you for your patience. We know this episode has taken a while to come out and the episodes are getting a bit infrequent, but I assure we’re still here with one exception and we’re working on replacing equipment that has been dying down for a while now. On that note, my normal co-host is still on hiatus and will be until further notice as I’m not sure when he will be available again. Today we’re going to cover and improve the guild kit for the...
