There are no teachers here in Legacy Weapon, just slightly more talkative students. Today, we look back at our Kaladesh predictions, review what has been happening with Aether Revolt cards, and give out lukewarm takes (like hot takes, but slower) on Amonkhet. Most importantly, chill, kick back, and remember that preparation is the best Legacy Weapon!

There are no teachers here in Legacy Weapon, just slightly more talkative students.

There are no teachers here in Legacy Weapon, just slightly more talkative students. Special guest Kate Donnelly is back to talk more Posts. Today we’ll go into more depth about the deck, how to play it, and we’ll look at keep/mulligan decisions. Get ready to get prepared, it’s another episode of Legacy Weapon!

  • Kate is back! Kate is still cool. Maybe even cooler.
  • Kate talks about how she picked the deck, and why you might also.
  • We do that thing where we look at sample hands and argue about whether you can keep them.
  • Kate is much better at this game than Jamie and Drew are.
  • Grand Prix? Grand Prix!

  • Meet Kate! Kate is cool.

  • Wait, there are totally 13 Posts! Everything we knew is a lie!
  • Lots of mana! Lots of cards you thought were only for Commander! This deck is sweet.
  • Let’s talk sideboarding. Oh good, more Commander staples!

There are no teachers here in Legacy Weapon, just slightly more talkative students. Today, Drew and Jamie talk about the upcoming Legacy Gauntlet announced for MTGO in an action-packed episode filled with thrills and chills. Thrill as they attempt to set a new land speed record for deck techs! Feel the chills as our heroes race against the tyrannical egg timer of doom! But most importantly, chill, kick back, and remember that preparation is the best Legacy Weapon!

  • What is the Legacy Gauntlet?
  • What decks are included? Some of the most powerful ones in the format, of course!
  • There are a lot of decks here! Let’s burn through them!
  • Jamie makes fun of Drew’s timing device. Luckily, Drew has thick skin.
  • Whew, that was hectic! Chaotic, even.
  • Stay tuned for the Vulshoking conclusion!
  • Yeah, that last one was a stretch. I’d like to see you do better, though. It’s a challenge. That’s right, you might say I just THREW DOWN THE GAUNTLET!

Hello!  Jamie here.  

In case you don't know, Legacy Weapon is a podcast to help people who know magic but don't know Legacy get started and improve in the Legacy format.  Legacy is for everyone, and any budget and experience level can be competitive.  We start very simple, as we don't want to talk over anyone's heads, and have been ramping up the knowledge and strategy level as we go!

We are pleased to announce the launch of www.legacyweapon.com as the new home for our podcast.  This means we can be linked to by other sites as well, and are glad to plan our flag here at Kitchen Table MTG.

I expect to be on here a bit, but I will be quicker to respond on our main website or my e-mail, if you have any requests, questions or suggestions.

 

Now go enjoy Eternal Masters spoiler season!

[note, this was the last episode to be hosted on Gathering Magic prior to the move to this private site]

Today, Drew and Jamie have a very special announcement, and they also begin a two-part discussion about Jamie’s favorite deck: Elves! Creatures, card-draw, and mana galore—all the best parts of Magic! Remember that preparation is the best Legacy Weapon!
