Brainstorm Brewery #95 – A New Format

Based on some feedback, the gang has decided to reformat the show to make it conform to the consensus from the community. The cast has been streamlined and will follow a new, shorter format from now on. It is all the finance news you want in under five minutes, without all the filler.

  • What were the biggest winners and losers on MTGStocks?
  • Pick of the Week finishes in record time.
  • What cards are good pickups right now?
  • Outro




The cast continues in the spirit of April Fools’ Day and invites Elliot Scott (@hackworth) on to talk about “casual” finance, Commander, speculation about the new Duel Decks, and more. It’s an extra-long After Hours installment that will have you saying, “I’m glad they put the podcast at the end so I can turn it off after five minutes.” Whose Pick of the Week costs more than a yearly subscription to StarCityGames Premium? Who is late to cast and doesn’t have the benefit of a good excuse? Who might be right after all about the plane where the fall set will take place? Find out all this and more on an extra-long After Hours!

  • The gang is joined by Elliot Scott (@hackworth) husband of @moxymtg and great guy
  • Commander (2013 Edition) is being reissued. How will prices be affected?
  • What could be in Duel Decks: Speed vs. Cunning? Eldrazi? Hellrider? Who knows?
  • How do you tell spikes on cards like Food Chain from spikes on cards like Teferi’s Puzzle Box?
  • Are Legacy duals going to go up forever, or is this an unsustainable peak?
  • Elliot buys and trades, hoping to make Modern affordable. How does he “finance”?
  • How does Elliot balance work and a family with a game that asks so much of our time?
  • Want to win prizes? Go to, and caption some pics!
  • Have pics of you wearing our shirt or using our mat? Send them in for a chance at a prize!
  • There are still some tokens and mats left. E-mail us to get hooked up.
  • The address is brainstormbrew at gmail dot com.
