We (accidentally) welcome our first guest, prompting Chris to (self-consciously?) insult our listeners.

GCB tells tales from the 90's wild west of competitive Magic. Chris obsesses about whether or not PTQ's are fun. Chris leans into the microphone and talks loud while GCB leans away from the microphone and mumbles. GCB talks about how being wrong doesn't bother him, then gets so bitter about being wrong that he accuses Chris of cheating. Chris & GCB try out a deck for new standard by playing a deck from old standard.

This is approximately what we played (credit to Travis Woo, with the original new-standard version, here)

15 Forest
4 Razorverge Thicket
2 Gavony Township
4 Gitaxion Probe/Mental Misstep (Should be Arbor Elf)
4 Llanowar Elves
4 Birds of Paradise
4 Avacyn's Pilgrim
4 Palladium Myr
4 Elvish Archdruid
4 Somberwald Sage
4 Soul of the Harvest
1 Primeval Titan
2 Craterhoof Behemoth
4 Green Sun's Zenith

Sideboard
(Should have 3 Thragtusk)
2 Gavony Township
1 Plummet
1 Acidic Slime
3 Gutter Grime
1 Melira, Sylvok Outcast
1 Stingerfling Spider
4 Gut Shot
2 Sword of War and Peace

GCB & Chris eat pizza IN YOUR EAR. Chris freaks about the shifting face of counterspells in standard. GCB deceives himself into thinking that the new M13 mythics aren't that good. The only card that is accurately described is Battle of Wits, so that's useful.

Then Chris convinces GCB to play with Humans again. We apologize to our listeners: we promise we will learn something about podcasting someday.
