This Week in Magic

It’s Live again!  Tom just can’t get enough, and it gets even better when we have a bunch of people in the chat window and some live callers.  You can join us each week at

What's this?  Gavin Verhey (@GavinVerhey) was hired by WoTC as a R&D intern?  And he is on the show this week and next week before he starts because he is just that awesome?  Yes.

Mark Rosewater hints at some tidbits on Dark Ascension and "Roll" with a potential return of the unearth mechanic, as well as double-faced cards being used for things other than creatures.  Today's Arcana answers Tom's burning question on whether the art for Army of the Damned really has 13 zombies on it.  The Innistrad Prerelease numbers reportedly up by 32%.  If you loved the magic puzzles from Inquest or The Duelist, make sure to check out the "Puzzling Magic" articles at Gathering Magic.   A listener has written a very cool iPhone app to let you play Momir Basic where ever you are; the app is called MTGMomir.

Tom's B-movie pick of the week is Troll 2.

Listener Emails

As promised, live callers and chat questions!  Thank you to everyone for the donations.  This is the monster movie show on The Escapist.
