Hey... Where is Bill?

"There's Magic everywhere in this Bitch." Is a damn Kick-ass Line! It should Definitely get a Tshirt!

This episode was hilarious. I was slightly saddened by the way Tim left but I guess the cH versions of you guys really are jerks so that explains that.

Magic Magnets! How do they work?

One of you best!
Graeme your Gorrilaz shirt is boss! I wish I had picked one up when I was at the concert.

so did Tim actually leave? is he no longer with LRR?

also, I've been wanting to get into Magic for a long time now but haven't due to a combination of being lazy and poor. anyone have any advice on sets to start with?

To answer some questions that are coming up - Tim left because he is finishing his Masters degree and getting married. He's a busy guy and just doesn't have time to commit to LRR outside of everything else. He's still around, but won't be making regular appearances.

Bill and Morgan are much in the same way. They're still around (and will be driving during Desert Bus this year! www.desertbus.org *ahem*), but they don't make regular appearances due to work/school/other commitments.

I love Commodore Hustle. Maybe I can get my D&D group to up our nerd quota for some Magic...

While I'm sad to hear they can't make it as much as they use to I'm glad you're all still friends and everything. :D

I have to admit, since I really don't have any friends and are terrible at card games I couldn't give it my highest rating but it was still a funny episode.

I got a Magic deck for my birthday last month.
I've spent so goddamned much already now...
Awesome episode, easily my favourite!

Many game stores have free promotional packs with about 40 cards of each color. They actually have some pretty neat cards, and you can definitely build around the cards you get. I've made a vampire deck around the black deck and it's decent for casual.
Although my elf deck totally rapes face. Swinging for 120 is always fun, if not particularly effective. That was built around the Ears of the Elves duels of the planeswalkers deck, singles and lots and lots of trading.

Otherwise, duel decks give two pretty nice decks (Tezzeret vs. Elspeth is cool. I'd stay away from Phyrexia vs. the Coalition though).

The easiest thing is getting someone to play with first though. I have two friends in my college and we play pretty much every day. There is nothing more fun than total chaos of burn vs. elves. vs. suicide black.

Pfft. None of them could stand up to my Rat Deck! Nearly everyone i play reduces your maximum hand size until your down to 1! MUAHAHAHA IM EVIL!!

Aww crap. Kitty deck.... I concede....

I guess you just went to the Gorillaz concert. I went to see them on friday and one word awsome I also got the hoodie.

......you have no idea how often that happens to me. No the whole color-changing mid-game nonsense. But I have a friend who just crushes me in 3 turns no matter what color I play. But we play casual and type 1. I suppose that makes it my fault for letting him run 4 sneak attacks and 2 darksteel colossi.

Finally more commodore Hustle! Very good first scene btw. Nice passing of the torch there. May I ask for some more Phailhaüs as well?

Wow you guys really reached into the heart and soul of that game. That is essentially the reason why me and my friends play so infrequently and why when we do, it is only with stuff thats fun, not stuff that wins.

Run Snapbacks and Dazes for that silliness if you're running Blue. Once he dumps his hand trying to power out the colossus, you bounce the colossus back and...he can't play it until he finds more mana.

Most cheat-into-play decks rely on a very tight/fast mana curve. Daze can kill that.

OT: It's a shame that Wizards is flat-out raping their customers now with this Mythic-rare nonsense. Their latest set has virtually no good cards at any rarity other than Rare and Mythic.

It's why I don't play competitively anymore. Standard is an endless arms race.

woot, alex is a member

Hehehehahaaha. Kitties beat everything.

Ahhh, the joys of a childrens card game. Also yay for the Gorillaz Tea-shirts.

Congratulations Tim and goodbye. Never be part of a club that would have you as a member.

"It's all done with magnets."

"Well how do they work?!?"

I see what you did there :>

Yay, is Alex officially crew now?!

man i can relate i remember yu-gi-oh cards spent over 90 dollars to create one deck lol sigh good times good times

I really have no idea how to play the game, so this probably wasn't as funny as it could have been to me. I still enjoyed the concept of Alex cheating like crazy though. I think the magnets bit was the best part though.

Thumbs up for the possibly unintentional Clown Posse quotes.

Glad to hear a positive response to the video everyone!

Someone was asking about my decklist, which isn't actually goblins. I play RDW at Friday Night Magic at Yellowjacket now with some pretty decent success. Its a fun and straightforward build, and I never get tired of flattening $80 Jace, The Mind Sculptors with my 25¢ commons and $4 rares.

Alex's Red Deck Wins
Mono Red Aggro

Creatures (20)
4 Kiln Fiend
4 Plated Geopede
4 Goblin Bushwhacker
4 Ember Hauler
4 Chandra's Spitfire

Spells (20)
4 Lightning Bolt
4 Flame Slash
4 Arc Trail
4 Reverberate
4 Devastating Summons

Land 22
4 Teetering Peaks
4 Smoldering Spires
14 Mountain

It feels like blatant product placement, but it's Magic, so I have to like it. Nice...winning everything ridiculously quick too lol.

Best episode EVER!

So this is like making Tim's departure canon? :P

Anyhow, fantastic video, very funny. And Magic has recently eaten my soul. So I empathize.

kathleen is soooooooo ooooooo ..... awesome in every single way...
if you know what "ways" i mean *wink* M-)

Great episode, it was highly amusing all the way through ^_^

Great episode. Now, want to see the Angry Kitty deck.

Matt_LRR:

lord_rint:
What app were you using to record life? I looked for a while and couldn't find one

It's called "gathering"

-m

I searched for it, and it didn't show up in the App store search results =(

Scratch that. I found it through iTunes. Derp =P

Thanks for the help, but I play red.
