Brainstorm Brewery 223- 2x the Oklahoma and 1/3 the salt

 

Jason is gone for the week but the spirit of interruption lives on.  JJ Jackson is our special guest as Douglas and Corbin  cover pre-protour specs strategy and then take questions from JJ about how a street-level financier with no storefront can get over.  Join us for this week’s Brainstorm Brewery.

Brainstorm Brewery #222 – How to get murdered by a Craigslist seller

It’s a dangerous world out there. People set up all sorts of shady scams to rob or murder people who are attracted to Craigslist deals. You might think we’d offer you advice on how not to get murdered by people like that, but we totally don’t. I’m just realizing that we spent a good portion of this episode encouraging you to put yourself in statistically the most dangerous situation you’ll be in during a given week but without offering any help. So, uh, don’t get murdered. Especially since we relaunched our Patreon.

Brainstorm Brewery 221: The Wescoe Review

The banning announcement came early, so we decided to push this out early too.  Craig Wescoe takes a break from being awesome at life to bless you with thoughts from the recent bannings, Legacy GP, and Aether Revolt.   Since the format is in such flux after the surprise bans, there is not a card-by-card set review, but the group highlights some of their favorites.

  • Craig Wescoe came by and was awesome
  • Something something Douglas Johnson something always guest (@Rose0fthorns) something
  • We make fun of Corbin for doing Corbin things
  • We cover Aether Revolt
  • We cover GP Louisville

Brainstorm Brewery #220 New Year’s Revolt

We missed last week and it may have only been half Corbin’s fault.  Its a new year and the cast is back with the best financial information and spoiler coverage.   Babies are absent from the cast, but their impact on the past year is discussed.   It’s Brainstorm Brewery.

Brainstorm Brewery #219 – Gueststravaganza

We have three underage guests as our normal guest, DJ, is joined by Benjamin Hosler and Liliana Alt for an episode that will have you saying “We get it, you have babies.” Stay at home dads are gonna dad in this episode that might be the last one of 2016 unless you’re lucky. Strap in and put our podcast magic in your head holes until your boss fires you for laughing at your desk. It’s Brainstorm Brewery.

Brainstorm Brewery #218 – Risk Assessment

Corbin clearly wants to talk about his brew but he gets no-sir’d by the gang. If you want to watch it because you hate yourself, the link is here.

Just kidding, that was Corbin hitting a light pole. The real link is here.

That was Corbin hitting a light pole again. The real link is here.

We get into a pretty good discussion about risk assessment and how to find stuff that Commander 2016 hasn’t made spike yet. If you don’t pay attention to EDH, better start now because it’s making hella prices spike and nothing else is really doing much. Get into trouble with us.

Brainstorm Brewery #217 – Double Double Season

Aether Revolt spoilers, a few card spikes from Atraxa and Corbin is a clumsy idiot. That’s about enough nonsense to fill the hour.

Brainstorm Brewery #216 – Corbin’s Back and Other Bad News

Corbin’s on this one and he knows he was pranked. He pretends it doesn’t bother him, but we know better. The episode took a while to get rolling and honestly, most of it isn’t suitable for you hearing and will probably be relegated to after hours. We’ll do one of those soon. One or more. We have a lot in the works – new Patreon rewards, Tee Spring, the works. This episode was by the numbers and that’s not exactly boring, but it doesn’t make for exciting show notes writing.

Brainstorm Brewery #215 – Podcast Emetrius

So last week we asked for help pranking Corbin and you guys actually have no idea how well it worked. Like, you probably saw Corbin lose his cool a bit on twitter and what you don’t know is that he actually lost it to a way greater extent privately. It was fun times. I’m feeling better about the prospects of a Teespring campaign, now. This episode was a special one because Corbin isn’t here and we have two guests join us whom you may know – Marcel and Ryan. It’s a very special episode of your favorite podcast.

Brainstorm Brewery #214 – Help Us Prank Corbin

Corbin never listens to the episode so after he got off of the group call we decided to have you help us prank him. If you all wouldn’t mind tweeting at him to mention how savagely we burned him at the end of the episode, that would be awesome. Don’t be specific, just mention the burn was savage in its intensity and unprecedented in its animosity. He’ll finally listen to an episode of Brainstorm Brewery and there will be nothing. That’ll teach him. Also, this episode was pretty good.

Keep an eye out for Teespring

Help us get back the listeners we lost

That is all. Thank you.

Brainstorm Brewery #213 – Cat President

We got talking about how every episode of this cast could be someone’s first time listening to the cast ever. It was a weird concept and derailed us a little bit. How do you know how often to go back over stuff you’ve already discussed? Do you reference inside jokes? Do you assume everyone knows the going rate for bulk and good outs for it, or that everyone on the cast has written articles about it? I guess what I’m trying to say is we referenced Cookie Clicker again and we don’t know how many people remember that. There’s a new one now where a cat is trying to be president or something and you grab money? It was not thoroughly explained. If you don’t remember Cookie Clicker, you will either be lost or you’ll go back to like episode 57 or whatever and listen, and that’s the point. A click in every cookie and a cat in every White House. Cookie Cats. Just listen to the episode, already.

Brainstorm Brewery #212 – Pretend You Can’t Hear the Baby

Two guests this week as Corbin is forced to do the cast with his baby on his lap like a real stay-at-home nerd. The disruptions are both minimal and hilarious and Corbin’s kid is a better guest than some people we could name (*cough*DJ*cough*). Big changes to the Pauper format and SCG’s support of Legacy are discussed and Commander 2016 is in focus in a jam-packed episode of your favorite podcast that will leave you asking “Did Corbin have a boy or girl?” This is Brainstorm Brewery.

Brainstorm Brewery #211 – Act Surprised When It’s My Pick

We have a real problem. Our RSS feeds haven’t updated correctly and some people haven’t heard an episode since 203. Some people think we’re not a podcast. We ARE a podcast. We ARE. We record on the computer box and give it to you for free. Do us a favor – you’re able to access the cast because you’re reading this so obviously you have it. Share this cast with a friend. Tell people it’s still going. Help us reclaim the 20% or so of our listener base we lost to technical errors. Be our pals. We’ll be your pals back. Thanks, everyone.

Brainstorm Brewery #210 – The Only Island With Glen Elendra On It

We did stuff out of order on this one. If we’re being honest, Jason and DJ knew that Corbin had to get up early and wanted to get the cast recorded in a timely manner so he could sleep before his flight and they actively impeded that. The good thing is that most of the weird tangents led to a lot of accidental value. Are you picking out the basic island that is worth $1? You will be after today. We’re all about value for you’s listeners. This is Brainstorm Brewey.

Brainstorm Brewery #209 – Parents Won’t Let Kids Buy Throat-Slitter

No, I’m not going to explain the title in the show notes. Listen to the episode, nerd. You were going to listen anyway, so I’m not sure why you’re upset. Unless you’re upset that we didn’t tell you to buy Smuggler’s Copter at like $1. Believe me, we’re all mad about that. I had some in my shopping cart, even. Clicked the red X, didn’t want to gamble. Do you like to gamble? We missed on one card but we think there’s money to be made, still. We’ll get you ahead of the curve so you’ll have your copies to sell when everyone else’s orders are getting canceled. That’s how much we love you guys. Thanks for listening.

Brainstorm Brewery #208 – A New Frontier

We don’t actually talk about Frontier that much. Maybe I shouldn’t say that; maybe you really wanted to hear us talk about Frontier and you won’t listen if you think we don’t talk about it. We definitely talk about it. But I don’t want you to think we talk about it TOO much if you have no interest in Frontier or don’t know what it is (we explain what it is, this isn’t our first rodeo). We talk about Frontier enough for people who want to hear about it and little enough that it won’t feel oppressive if you don’t want to talk about it. Probably. Most of our segments are longer, I don’t know why I let it take over the show notes like this. We talked about other stuff, too.

#207 Brainstorm Brewery – Kaladesh Set Review

This is the Kaladesh set review! Corbin still insists on reading every card! Jason still has to drink to get through them! Ryan and Marcel luck out and don’t have to suffer the indignity of the exercise!

 

To help out, the gang enlisted the help of two guests – Douglas Johnson (@Rose0fthorns) and Shaeen Soorani (@ShaheenMTG). Are there underpriced gems? Is Smuggler’s Copter good? Are the cards overpriced? Find out when you shove this podcast into your headholes, nerds! This is Brainstorm Brewery, ya heard?
