In a continuation from episode 197, we talk about layers and how effects interact using them. We also talk a bit about dependencies, and reference too many moons (Blood Moon, Bad Moon, Imprisoned in the Moon, etc)
This episode promises to be anything but basic, in fact you might call it legendary! Are you snowed in with only your creature comforts? It’s a good thing you landed here of all places in the world. Turn on this episode about types in Magic and in an instant prepare to be enchanted.
Through what sorcery do we put out content so good? We have special guest Aaron LaCluyze on, a fan of the tribe of Goblins and an all around scientific expert.
Unrelated, Karn is an artifact and a planeswalker. I mean, not really, but something has to complete this belabored joke.

Copy the URL to this one down! Try to control your excitement! Text all of your friends who are rules-loving types and tell them to listen to our very special episode on layers (Or, “Interaction of Continuous Effects”). Never heard of layers? Color us impressed! Part of the greatness of layers is their ability to reach intuitive results without the players needing to think about them. It’s a powerful tool, and it’s tough sometimes to even see where the layers are working.
As is characteristic of all our episodes, we set out to educate you, the listener, on all the basics of layers. Is there anything you’d like us to modify about this episode? Did we say something counter to what you’d expect? This episode is all about the basics (What someone going for L1 would need to know) and next episode we switch it up with the advanced stuff.
