Join Bryan and Samma on this tour up and down the Sword Coast as we pull up a chair at the Yawning Portal and talk about the new set over a mug of Shadowdark Ale. Behold the new mechanics as we do a Waterdeep dive into some rules you possibly didn’t know, and probably didn’t care about. Don’t forget to Candlekeep on listening as Bryan critically fumbles his way through a recount of the classic tale, “The Head of Vecna”. And finally we talk about the new MTR and Policy updates that came out with the new set.
In this supersized episode Bryan and Samma dig deep on the rules and mechanics of several Modern Horizon 2 Cards. If you want to know how Urza’s Saga makes various Modern Decks better, go somewhere else. But if you want to know how Urza’s Saga works under a Blood Moon, or the difference between creating a token, and having a token enter the battlefield under your control then you have come to the right place.
Prepare for your prerelease! There are no new mechanics, but there are plenty of fun interactions still to be had as we peruse the most interesting cards from the Magic 2019 Core Set release notes!
