OCTOBER EPISODE

  • The tables are turned on Randy Buehler when special guest Brian David-Marshall takes over the microphone, putting Randy on the hot seat. The two longtime Magic players discuss Time Spiral's nostalgia-triggering cards, the state of Magic and Wizards of the Coast, Randy's changing role in the game and company, and word of a new digital game on the 2007 horizon codenamed "The Goblin Game."
  • Time Spiral has hit the shelves, so it's time to see what impact it will have on the metagame. R&D members Aaron Forsythe and Devin Low look at the refreshed Limited and Constructed formats, highlighting overlooked cards, the differences in drafting Ravnica and Time Spiral, and much more.
  • This Month in Magic showcases the upcoming events, and there are some big ones. Pro Tour-Kobe is only a week away -- if you're hankering to see how the Pros draft the set, you won't want to miss it. Then on October 28, Time Spiral explodes on the Standard scene at Champs. Included in the enhanced iTunes podcast is your first look at the special-frame participation and prize cards Urza's Factory and Serra Avenger.
