We are back with another Magic: The Gathering episode of the Indiana Geeking Podcast! This one is a bit longer, but we had a lot of stuff to go over to bring you all up to date on everything Magic happening from the beginning of 2019, all the way up to the recently released MTG 2020 Core Set. Not only do we have that information, but Jarred and TJ also cracked open a prerelease box (see photos at bottom of the post) and did some talking about how to draft a deck. In addition, after the episodes were recorded, we wanted to give you all some additional resources, so look for those down in the show notes.
Now, I want to warn you all, this episode is over two hours. Jarred and TJ had a lot of information, and even after a couple of listens, I didn’t have much to cut past some of my “witty” remarks. So, tuck in, and get ready to listen to all things Magic: The Gathering, thanks to these two fantastic gentlemen! If you’re looking for specific expansion information, everything is broken down in the time stamps below!
