Everyday Eternal Podcast Episode 16: Born of the Gods and Death of the Shaman

After downtime last month, the #EverydayEternal crew is back with lots of format news.

Additionally, a friend of the podcast has provided us with some of the much-talked-about Chinese counterfeits to take a look at. While we’ve already talked about what we think of them in general, we spend a bit of time explaining why we think, at least this print run, shouldn’t be of any concern to the average player.

Note: This podcast was recorded before the Brainstorm scandal at GP: Paris broke out. Pending the results of that investigation, I’m sure we’ll have something to say about it later.
