Color Commontary 160: All’s Well That Ends Well

July 23, 2019

Well, it's been a great time. We're going on an indefinite hiatus after much deliberation, and wanted to send things off in a delightfully ramshackle way with a last call for listener questions. 

We would like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you who has listened for all these years for your constant support and feedback. This has been a great project and we've been incredibly lucky to have found something that has brought enjoyment to all of you. Thanks an we hope to entertain you again some day!

Color Commontary 159: Finally Unified

Color Commontary 159: Finally Unified

July 16, 2019

While we were busy with reintroducing the format and taking vacations, a huge announcement hit! After years of outcry from players, Wizards of the Coast has unified the paper and Magic Online card pools! We're going through some of the cards likely to make a splash!

On another note, the show will be going on an indefinite hiatus after next week's episode, there's more detail in the audio, but the long and short is we felt it was time to let the show come to somewhat natural end for the time being. we may return in the future but for now, we've said our piece. Thank you all so very much for your support over the years, and if you have any requests for the final episode next week, please let us know!

Gush is gone. The biggest surprise was what went with it. With such a massive shake up to the metagame we had to invite our spikiest of friends on the show to discuss the fallout of this huge decision, so we of course turned to Kendra, aka The Maverick Girl.

Color Commontary 151: Hypernormalisation in Pauper

May 15, 2019

Here it is, we took a week off to bring you a real experiment in the format of our podcast. This week we're on the eve of a B&R announcement and wanted to talk about the discourse surrounding it from a slightly more academic perspective than we usually take.

Recommended viewing prior to this. Yes this is 6 hours of content, but we do strongly urge you watch them at some point.
