Storm Count 13 - Allegiance Mechanics

12/31/2018
More
Hello and welcome back to the SuperMagic Podcast. Today we’re going to cover the mechanics of Ravnica Allegiance rather than individual cards. We’ll discuss how well they fit the theme of the guilds as well as how they compare with previous guild mechanics and where they might fit in the with the current format. As we close out 2018, whether you been listening since we started or only gave us a passing listen out of curiosity, we’d like take the time to thank you for joining us and sharing...

Storm Count 12 - Everything Nobody Wanted

12/22/2018
More
Hello and welcome SuperMagic. Today we follow up some our best picks from Ultimate Masters, a nearly perfect send off to the Masters series as Wizards of the Coast is trying to distance itself from the last few that haven't quite hit the mark with fans. Although there's plenty to like in this set, there's no such thing as a perfect set and we highlight some of the more puzzling inclusions in this set and what you could probably skip until it ends up in the bargain bin.

Storm Count 11 - Ultimate Stocking Stuffers

12/18/2018
More
Hello and welcome back to SuperMagic. Join us this week as we cover some of the best picks from Ultimate Masters. Though we’ve made our opinion of Ultimate Masters as a whole and whether or not this product is worth buying a box for, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any gems to uncover. That being said, you won’t have to look very far as this set is loaded with some great gems. We try our best to avoid some of the cards that are still over twenty dollars apiece and focus mostly on some of the...

Storm Count 10 - Strangely Modern

12/1/2018
More
Hello and welcome to a new edition of Supermagic. First I’d like to apologize for the small hiatus to contend with an urgent family matter, but now were back. This week we’re going to take a look at two interesting modern decks that warrant a closer look as they showcase some of the best aspects of the format and makes a solid argument to try to something new, something different, and maybe even using one of the worst planeswalkers ever printed in a competitive deck.

Storm Count 9 - Master of None

11/14/2018
More
Hello and welcome to another edition of SuperMagic, this week we will go over the announcement of Magic's newest product; Ultimate Masters. We'll discuss the brief history of Modern Masters, why it was made, who it was for, and if it failed or succeeded in what it set out to do. We'll also go over what sets this one apart and whether or not it is worth the investment of your hard earned dime.

Storm Count 8 - Planeswalking on the Cheap

11/8/2018
More
Hello and welcome to the Supermagic Podcast, this week we review two of the more popular color combinations in Magic, at least according to Wizards of the Coast as these two color combinations have been pit against each other in a separate product (Duel Decks). This time each of the guilds are represented by two of the Planeswalkers from Return to Ravnica; Ral, Caller of Storms and Vraska, Regal Gorgon. We go over the purpose of Planeswalker decks as a whole, who they should be aimed at,...

Storm Count 7 - Burn v. Zombies

10/31/2018
More
Hello and welcome back to SuperMagic, this week experiment with remaining two guild kits and see if we can’t raise a better deck from the ashes of these two. We’ll review the guild kit product as a whole; who is it for, which one you should start with, which format you should try it in, and whether or not it’s worth your money. We also go over what is probably the most confusing addition to this magic product, which goes out of its way to promote cards that are not tournament legal in the...

Storm Count 6 - Assassins v. Treefolk

10/24/2018
More
Hello and welcome back to SuperMagic, this we explore the seedy underbelly and enclosed woods of Ravnica; specifically the guild kits of the Dimir and Selesnya Guilds. Join us as we discuss the weaknesses and strengths of each guild and why you would choose on over the other and how you might improve these decks with what’s available. We also discuss the recent premium mythic planeswalker Guilds of Ravnica Box and the nature of premium products in general.

Storm Count 5 - Guild Kits: A Human Starter Kit

10/11/2018
More
Join us this week as we cover the first of five Guild Kits, where we discuss whether they are worth it and how you might improve them. I know we cover these official products a lot, but we believe it is important to look through the products that Wizards of the Coast releases to allow new players to join this community and as it is right now, these are the fastest and simplest way for someone to have a deck to start playing, so we feel that it is important to give people the best idea of...

Storm Count 4 - Guilds Threats and Estrid, the Masked.

10/1/2018
More
Hello and welcome to another episode of SuperMagic. Today we cover a few more interesting cards from Guilds of Ravnica. We also conclude our review of the Commander 2018 with Estrid, the Masked. We discuss a different way to play the enchantment commander and a few additions if you don’t want to stray too far from the way WOTC intended to play her.

Storm Count 3- Guild Standouts and Lord Windgrace

9/20/2018
More
Hello and welcome to another week of SuperMagic. This week we go over some of our picks of cards to look out for in Guilds of Ravnica. These may not be the obviously powerful cares in the upcoming set, but they are definitely some of the more interesting one to look out for. We also go over the 3rd commander from the Commander 2018, Lord Windgrace. We discuss how good he is and how his deck lends itself to expanding in different directions, but not necessarily all of them at once.

Storm Count 2 - Guild Mechanics and Saheeli, the Gifted

9/16/2018
More
Hello and welcome back to SuperMagic, this week we go over the mechanics of the upcoming set, Return to Ravnica. Rather than go into specific cards that have been previewed, we decided to go into the mechanics of each of the five guilds featured in this set first because a lot of the cards that come out in this set will support or feature these mechanics. Also, I apologize in advance for calling some mechanics by a different name as it was part of an earlier discussion on the naming of...
