Well, this is it. The final episode of Monday Night Magic. Well, for now at least. But first we're covering the 2020 Grand Finals with its incredibly healthy meta and wonderful future for its winner. Oh...wait. Then we're gonna cover the Ban list update that should have happened a few weeks ago. Then there are a few more bits of news to cover (sinc…
 
On this episode we're discussing how Omnath is still a potential problem in Standard (as was expected) and the Commander Rules Committee's decision about The Walking Dead Secret Lair. We're spending a good long while on the second one, and also going into detail about how you shouldn't harass members of the RC, the CAG, or employees of WotC just be…
 
There was no news for this episode until this morning. Then Wizards of the Coast managed to make multiple bad decisions on Monday morning, so now we have to do a show. There's a new B&R update! This isn't the best news, since the new post-rotation Standard format isn't even THREE DAYS OLD. Also, the cards that seem to be real problem are from the n…
 
Chewie & Cluze talk about the 2021 set roadmap that was revealed, talk about Zendikar Rising, putting Jace on your feet for some reason, and the many woes of the Mythic Invitational Top 8. Technical woes, that is, not like there was only 1 deck or anything. And then a sudden Squee shows up at the very end! Yay! Watch the video version here: https:/…
 
The MNM crew is back after another short break to cover all the news from...the last week. Huh, neat. We have yet another banning, this time for Historic. We have a mess of new products, including a surprise Secret Lair and one that was announced ahead of time. We have Commander stuff of various flavors. We have a new draft format coming to MTGO th…
 
Hey look, we're back! And there was another ban list update! Except this one came out of nowhere on Monday morning, with no warning and no announcement ahead of time. The MNM crew will discuss the pros and cons of this approach as well as talk about the frankly stunning number of surprise bans. Then we're diving into the ever-growing list of WotC's…
 
Hey there was a Banned List update! And most of it was good, except for the one format that is apparently on fire. Oh well. After that we have more examples in the "WotC is a terrible company" category, showing that the D&D side of the company is just the same as the MTG side. Also we have in-store play suspended in North America & Latin America, b…
 
Hey, look at Wizards of the Coast trying desperately to get some goodwill back from the community! They're taking steps to address some old racist cards, they're cutting ties with problematic artists, and they unbanned the frivolously-suspended Austin Bursavich in time for him to play in a Players Tour Online. So yeah, we talked about Terese Nielse…
 
After spending the previous episode lambasting Wizards of the Coast for its increasingly shady business practices, you might expect us to give them a break this week, right? Yeah, we're not going to. Not at all. Two articles that highlight more problematic practices at WotC have come to light in the last few days. The first is an open letter pointi…
 
Black Lives Matter. We begin this episode with a brief discussion about everything that is going on in the US at the moment, what with the protests about police brutality and the police brutality that they've been getting in response. Just so you know, the No Swearing on Monday Night Magic rule has been lifted for this episode. Then we accidentally…
 
The Banned & Restricted List update is the big news, especially with the BAN in VINTAGE. Wow. So that's the majority of the episode, of course. After that, we're hitting more WotC news, the first Arena Open, and Historic Anthology 3! Oh, and reminding you to grab your Planeswalker Points if you want them, because time is running out! Of course, eve…
 
Hey look, the boys are back! We've got a few little topics to cover and one big one! We've got postponed Dreamhack events, Godzilla lands, Hasbro making face shields for medical personnel, an unfortunate young MFO player, and a teaser about the new Historic Anthology for Arena. But the BIG news this week come from the innocently-named article, Suns…
 
Ikoria has released (in digital form anyway) and Companions have made quite the splash. One of them is causing big problems on MTGO, warranting a temporary ban in all competitive formats. Commander had to rewrite a rule to accommodate them. The judging policy pretty much ONLY cared about Companions. And they are currently taking over every format o…
 
After missing the last two weeks due to a lack of news and, to be perfectly honest, lack of interest in anything MTG related given the recent state of the world...we're back! There's just something about Godzilla appearing on actual real Magic cards that makes us sit up and pay attention. So we're going to catch up on the news that has happened sin…
 
The spread of COVID-19 has hit Magic and, like it has hit everything, it hit Magic HARD. All the upcoming MagicFests have been canceled. All the upcoming SCG events have been canceled. The MNM crew gets serious and goes over all these things and tries to give some perspective on what's going on in the world. This whole global pandemic thing is a bi…
 
It's a slow news week. In fact, if the B&R update hadn't happened we probably wouldn't have done the show this week. But luckily it did, so here we are! There are banlist updates across several formats, which is the big news of the week of course. There's the reveal of the full list of foils in the Mystery Booster WPN Edition. There's a list of stu…
 
No really, wash your hands. The MNM crew has a discussion about how B&R updates are now done and whether it's the best way to handle it. Then we have a canceled MagicFest, a pair of Secret Lairs (complete with a warning for those of you in Canada), more MTG D&D, some WPN links, a new way to handle bugs on MTGO, and the complete non-coverage of a Li…
 
Chewie & Squee have a bit of a weird episode this week. There's a new MTG product announcement, a bizarre mix of sealed and constructed called Jumpstart. That's not so odd these days. But from there we head into all the MTG-related multimedia stuff. There's ManaStrike, SpellSplingers, Legends, and of course Arena on the video game front. There's a …
 
The MNM crew is back! The World Championship happened this weekend and PV won, cementing him firmly at the top of the Best Players Ever discussions for the foreseeable future. There's also a discussion about Andrea Mengucci's game loss and whether it's okay at this extreme level of play. Then we cover the new Secret Lair, new Challenger Decks, and …
 
The MNM crew is back with plenty of...Twitter links? Apparently we're getting all our information from Twitter these days. We've got more Secret Lairs and WotC shifting things around because of the coronavirus outbreak in China. Bryan Gottlieb discovers an unsettling trend of Target carrying Collector Boosters that are actually just normal Draft Bo…
 
The first two Players Tours happened last weekend, and Pioneer is large in everyone's mind. The instant-win combo of Inverter of Truth and Thassa's Oracle is a definite factor in Pioneer. But of course it's not a giant meta breaker (except perhaps in Nagoya), because Pioneer is a pretty diverse format. Besides, no one can stop THE SUPREEEEEEME PHAN…
 
Now that it's the end of January we figured we should do a second Monday Night Magic of the year. We've got a new Secret Lair drop, the roster for the MPL and the Rivals League for the 2020 partial season, the new Creator Program thing, and a single tournament. That single tournament was a completely sold out GP New Jersey that took place at the ma…
 
We're back for the first MNM of 2020! We've got bans, we've got tournaments, and we've got information about multiple MTG-based video games! WotC also walks back their first major decision of 2020, which makes the rest of the year a little concerning. There's a little talk about Theros Beyond Death too since it will be releasing very soon. We finis…
 
It makes a lot of sense that the the final Monday Night Magic of 2019 contains the final banlist updates of 2019. And the end of scheduled B&R announcements as we know them! GASP! Also Pioneer has decided to join in the holiday cheer by also banning Oko. And Nexus of Fate. Yay holiday cheer! Then it's time for Neverending Preview Season to rear its…
