*Sadly there were some audio issues with Jason’s microphone. Sorry*

The brew crew welcomes back Corbin (@Chosler88). Plus we have a very special guest, Steve (@VerbotenWater4), who no one (especially not our long term guest DJ @Rose0fThorns) has ever met before. We answer emails, discuss possible modern unbans, delve deep into Jason’s ( (@jasonEalt) inability to accept compliments, and much more.

*Also we know that BBE can’t get boom//bust anymore. We forgot about the rule change.*

BRAINSTORM BREWERY #263 The Cupcake of Flavortown

This week Corbin (@Chosler88) is gone and Jason (@jasonEalt) is driving the bus with two terrified guests, DJ “cupcake” Johnson (@Rose0fThorns) and Paul Feudo (@prfeudo). The crew discusses listener emails, the downsides of living in Florida, the best karate kid, Madonna’s dating life, and the strategy to maximize value in Iconic Masters.

Brainstorm Brewery 262: Full Circle

Yet another kind soul has given enough money to the cast to join for one episode; this week the cast is joined by Patreon patron Eric Kangas.   Jason forgot his flavor town shirt, and tells a story about the one time he felt bad about something.   Doug cheats and brings rare to breaking bulk.   Corbin looks in obscure places for a sponsor for the podcast.    It is a very spicy episode.

 

Brainstorm Brewery 261: Use The Buddy System

This week’s cast has less room than normal for nonsense as the cast goes deep on Breaking Bulk and listener email questions. Jason gets saucy because you don’t read his articles and then ask redundant questions, and talks about how to use EDHrec metrics.   Jason and Doug discuss whether you should purchase recently print EDH relevant cards in large quantities.    Finally, Corbin somehow didn’t make this whole cast about one half of the new duel-deck.

 

Brainstorm Brewery 260: Please Welcome Your New Mayor

Jason is here and he has lots of product in his hair.   Douglas is here and he has obscure Judgement cards you should be interested in.   Corbin is here and he is baffled by happenings at McDonalds and doesn’t know how to pronounce “schezwan.”   This week’s episode contains both very long and very weird listener emails, as well as potential tribal targets for the next several months.   Join us for this week’s Brainstormbrewery.

 

 

Brainstorm Brewery 259: Community College Outreach

The cast is at full strength plus one as they are joined by special patreon patron Earl O’Connor.  Jason and DJ try desperately to change the subject as Corbin discusses the various pros and cons of Kira Great Glass Spinner versus the new Ixalan fish.   Jason shares his secret knowledge of where to find the more casual of players.   DJ pulls a good breaking bulk pick out the dregs of BFZ block.   Join us for this week’s Brainstorm Brewery.

Brainstorm Brewery 258: Participation Trophy Husband

This episode is the finest combination of mtg finance mixed with amazingly odd discussions.  Corbin returns to share stories of his time in Europe; we find out what he did with his time instead of absorbing centuries of ancient art and culture.  We discover if “spiny stuff” or “grindy stuff” kills more people in equipment-related accidents.  DJ and Jason drop sick burns on people that date their gaming devices in Asia.  There are also some amazing picks including a rare sealed product recommendation.   Jason tells you which portion of EDH to ignore for finance purposes.  But frankly this episode is the hot fire of random insanity you have come to know and love.   Download and be blessed.

Brainstormbrewery #257: Final Fantasy Football: An Ixalan Set Review

With Corbin still vacationing in an Olive Garden and DJ calling in from a remote unknown hotel location, Andy and Sean of the Commander’s Brew podcast join for an Ixalan set review.   With so many EDH minds gathered in one space, cards are considered for their Commander implications with an eye towards identifying a price range for pick-up.    Find out what cards the cast likes, or at least which one Jason doesn’t hate, and hear the phrase “Dino Deck” repeated with perhaps too much frequency.

Brainstormbrewery #256: Three MCs and One DJ

With Corbin gone, Ryan and Marcel emerge to bless the cast with their knowledge of recent MTG news.   A primary point of discussion are reprints; specifically the reprints just unveiled from iconic masters, as well as the impact of increased reprints over the past several years.   Ryan discusses the different audiences served by different products.    The cast discusses the changes implied by Magic Arena.   Marcel gets a chance to mispronounce new words whenever Ixalan spoilers are covered.   More things happen, and DJ has to leave early, but Ryan and Marcel are back.  What else do you need to know?

Brainstormbrewery #255: Back When Decks Were Cereal-Box Names

Patreon patron David Windmiller joins the cast as our very special guest this week to talk finance, legacy deck names, and the benefits of solar power.   With an extra guest, the cast veers off coarse into discussions of Duck Tales, potential finances feats for DJ, and podcast advertising memes.  Corbin discusses his upcoming vacation and fear of being tracked.   Pick of the week and breaking bulk each have an extra entry, including a spicy old common card from our guest.

Brainstormbrewery #254: B.S.B.B.S.

This week the cast responds to the large Monday news dump, covering new spoilers, planeswalker rule changes, and how WOTC is handling leaks.   DJ makes plans to purchase Jason an amazing costume.      Listener emails cover invocations, standard cards values, and the reserved list.  Pick of the week and breaking bulk cover cards that might move due to new rule changes with a side discussion about buylist spreads.

Brainstormbrewery #253: Stricken by Chicken

Jason and DJ take a break from the Discord server to join Corbin for this week’s cast.   Back to a standard show format with no guest, the reader emails get a bit aggressive and Corbin get a high-score on his speed-run review through the standard format.  A reader email alerts the cast to an amazing Flavor-Town resource.  Corbin’s pick of the week is so destructive that it exiles him from the cast, allowing Jason to brush up on his impersonation skills.

Brainstormbrewery #251: Statue of Limitations

This week, we learn which cast member uses lost and found and which cast member invokes “finders keepers”.    The standard recap covers a moving meta as decks adapt after the pro tour.   DJ gives highlights from working the GP, and the cast gives advice for selling a large collection at an event. Listener emails discusses what to do with extra fat pack boxes, deck boxes and playmats from buying collections.  Pick of the week deals with old EDH commanders that are beginning to move and a recommendation for a Masterpiece to pick up.

Brainstormbrewery #250: A New Mayor In Town

This week Corbin returns and Jason finds himself in his first political office.  Doug tries to remain awake through a pro-tour recap, and then wakes up with two red-hot breaking bulk picks.  Listener emails cover the impact of finance “thought-leaders” on the market and how to adjust your EDH buying habits in light of more speculation on that format.  Pick of the week covers an invocation that can be targeted.

Brainstormbrewery #249: Non-Foil Mindmoil

The cast is down a host this week as Corbin is summoned to chew loudly near a national scrabble tournament.  DJ and Jason answer the call and recap current trends.   The long-awaited discussion on running a case in a card shop is covered.   The patreon is getting very close to frosted tips, yet somehow farther away from DJ being a real cast member.   Most shockingly, it appears as though Jason might actually be a loss for words without Corbin around to make fun of.

Episode 10: New Recording Studios

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
