Brainstorm Brewery 259: Community College Outreach

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

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.

Brainstormbrewery #248: We Really Tried

This week the cast discusses the current state of standard, including deck diversity, cheap deck option, and sneaking Gideon into sideboards.  The power of suggestion drives Corbin to custard, and Jason briefly disappears from the cast.   Listener emails cover Pucatrade and consumer confidence.  DJ reviews some coming changes to the patreon, including chances to frost Jason’s  hair.  Strangely, breaking bulk features as many rares as pick up the week.

Brainstormbrewery #247: Meowloro

After several weeks of new and returning guests, the show return to its regular lineup of hosts and DJ.   With a lull before the new set drops, a ton of knowledge is shared as the cast hits breaking bulk, pick of the week and clears a swath of listener emails.  Topics include how to track price movements, finding rare booster packs, building relationships with GP vendors, and speculations on Commander 2017.   We learn that Corbin is to blame for terrible deck names, and Jason does his best impression of Wizard’s customer service.

Brainstormbrewery #246: Hour of Devastation Set Review

Today we are joined by Phil DeLuca of the Commanderin’ podcast for the Hour of Devastation set review. Since this set looks to be much spicier in Commander than Standard, we invited Phil on to share his perspective. Also, DJ tells perhaps the worst joke in BSB history.
