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

Gavin Verhey (@GavinVerhey) joins Tom for his last MNM before joining "the man" at WoTC in the R&D department!

Treasure Hunt is the alternate art promo in the first issue of the IDW MTG comic.  The winter PTQ season is officially Modern, to the joy of pretty much everyone.  Tom is baffled by why everyone is so up in arms with having the Top 8 PTQ pins disappearing.  Gavin gives some great feedback on Modern and the Planeswalker Point manifesto on Channel Fireball.

Tom’s B-movie pick of the week is Waxwork II: Lost in Time.

Listener Emails
As promised, live callers and chat questions!  Thank you to everyone for the donations.  Add another piece of art to the pregnant magic creature file.  Check out Xlblaze's newest holiday creation with Rudolf, the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Email in your questions for Gavin for his last ever podcast appearance next week to Tom at

Let Tom know what you think of a more live-based format for MNM and we will work on bringing the best audio quality we can.
