Everyday Eternal Podcast Episode 5: Therapy Session

Everyday Eternal Episode 5

In episode five of #EverydayEternal, Matt Pavlic (sdematt), Jacob Kory (@MTGKoby on Twitter), Sean O’Brien (nedleeds), and Sam Craven (@TheCravenOne on Twitter) discuss one of the most loved and most hated cards in legacy, Cabal Therapy. We discuss several different scenarios involving Cabal therapy and what card you might want to name most upon resolution of your Cabal Therapy. We also discuss the upcoming release of the Magic 2014 core set and its potential impact on eternal formats. If you play buzzword bingo, get ready for a good show because this episode is strictly better than a skill intensive mirror match, and that sure does seem good.

Serious Vintage Episode 12 highlights a special event in the Vintage Magic the Gathering realm: the TwaunSerious Invitational. Unfortunately Twaun himself (@Twaun007 on Twitter) couldn’t join us because his apartment is from the 1850s and doesn’t include Internet (does include diphtheria!), but we did get de facto second-in-command Jerry Yang (@yangtrolls) to help us talk about the event and the mighty rivers of scotch that flowed there. Also, Geoff (@ThallidTosser) got interviews with each player of the TwaunSerious event, so enjoy listening to those.
