Chewie, Mike, Brian, and Dirk have been talking about Magic: The Gathering on the internet for almost 10 years (at the time of this writing). Since there are so many shows about strategy and tournaments, these dorks focus on all the fun you can have with the game outside of that, from flavor to philosophy to game design to history to whatever else we can come up with. We're funny, we're serious about what we do, and we love it!

The dorks take a first look at the mechanics of Innistrad: Midnight Hunt! The big addition, of course, is the addition of a day/night cycle to Magic! It's a little weird, but ultimately it does make sense. Then there's the usual preview episode shenanigans of course. Let us know what you think of the new cards and mechanics! Innistrad: Midnight Hun…
 
I assure you this isn't a Monday Night Magic episode, even though we're essentially just hitting the news of the day. Seemingly out of nowhere last week Wizards of the Coast dumped all the news of next year's big products on our laps, including a first look at all the Standard sets and the first batch of Universes Beyond IP crossover products. The …
 
The dorks take on a controversial topic that came up lately in the MTG world - cards and mechanics that only exist on Magic Arena. This conversation wanders all over the place, but we're primarily talking about the fact that these cards exist rather than looking at the cards themselves, because what they actually do matters a lot less than them bei…
 
Since we haven't done an actual podcast episode in a couple weeks I decided to put the Just Chatting stream we did on July 29th up on the podcast feed to see what you all thought! There's a bit more swearing than you're used to (because it wasn't a podcast episode), and we went in with no plan whatsoever. Topics include video games, Activision Bliz…
 
After an unexpected week off, the dorks return with the D&D set Commander cards! We're looking at all the Commanders of course, then we're hopping around the card image gallery to take a look at whatever else grabs our attention. Warning: I'm not sure why, but this episode is full of dumb jokes. From Extract Brian to Blink Dog to OH YEAH! we're not…
 
The dorks head back into the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Card Image Gallery to check out even more awesome D&D related cards! We'll go through all the Class cards, which are really a neat idea. There are more planeswalkers and flavor words and utter weirdness of course, but that's not what's most important. They have properly given us Minsc …
 
The dorks return to guide you through their first look at the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, or the Magic D&D set. We'll venture into dungeons, roll lots of d20s, and discuss the merits of flavor words on cards! You'll meet goblins, see guards approaching, find some prisoners, and have to make plenty of decisions along the way. There will be m…
 
What's up with Red Rares? Not the dragons and phoenixes and big burn spells, those are all pretty self-explanatory. We mean those...OTHER Red Rares. You know the ones. The dorks dive into the different flavors of these bizarre cards and try to figure out why they are the way they are. Also, there are a LOT of examples. Just LOADS of them. Holy crap…
 
The dorks are back (sorry for the delay getting the show posted by the way) and we're looking at more Modern Horizons 2! There's a lot of really neat and bizarre stuff in here, but none of that really matters compared to the one major revelation. Travis is back! All hail the unluckiest planeswalker ever! Modern Horizons 2 Card Image Gallery: https:…
 
The dorks return to look at the Modern Horizons 2 previews! This set is truly bizarre. It feels more like a Commander set or another Time Spiral set with all the in-jokes and callbacks and utterly ridiculous card designs! Of course there's the one that everyone is talking about...but no one can say. No one, that is, except Mike! It's eerie how quic…
 
The dorks take a week off from MTG to talk about something else entirely - the Marvel Cinematic Universe! It's just a big fun discussion about how ridiculous it is that the MCU even exists, some of our favorite moments, and other topics of that sort. What's your favorite Stan Lee cameo? There will be spoilers for things released before last year, b…
 
The dorks each create a School of Magic for the forthcoming TMP University of the Arcane! And as usual, each of us took the same idea and each took our own unique take on it. Brian created an entire university (misunderstanding the idea slightly), Dirk focused on flavor and mechanics, Mike honed in on the topics his school would teach, and Chewie p…
 
So incredibly sorry for the delay on this episode! Chewie had lots of real-life stuff come up so he couldn't actually get it all put together for a week. The dorks (most of them anyway) are back to look at Commander 2021 since it has been revealed! Will this be yet another case of a handful of boring Commanders with the usual abilities that are som…
 
The full Strixhaven set has been revealed, so the dorks are combing through it looking for the neat stuff. We've got the Mastery spells, an Eye Bat, a...trudge?, a cycle of weirdly-costed multicolored hybrid cards, and an 11/10 creature for...four mana. Wait, WHAT? Also, PLEASE make sure your podcast app of choice is subscribed to the right RSS fee…
 
The dorks continue with Neverending Preview Season! Strixhaven previews are in full swing, so of course that's our focus for this episode. After hitting the mythics that have been revealed (as is our tradition) we take a look at all the various Deans of Strixhaven. There are a LOT of Deans at Strixhaven. Holy crap. Also, PLEASE make sure your podca…
 
Neverending Preview Season is upon us again, and the dorks jump headfirst into Strixhaven! We've got a few new mechanics, but nothing overly complicated. Among the revealed cards we find: 1) Chewie's new bae, Professor Onyx (please step on me) 2) The Kenrith twins, attached at the hip again...literally this time 3) Kasmina, giving all planeswalkers…
 
The dorks make some announcements about the TMP podcast and website, discuss their Covid-19 vaccine experiences (for a good long while because it's important), then look at the freshly released full schedule of Magic sets for the rest of the year. After that, we head into Magic Legends. The open beta begins extremely soon, so we decided to review t…
 
The dorks are back with another non-Magic episode! This time we're talking about music, and this episode, as it is with all the good ones, ended up being more about us than the topic at hand. We'll discuss our history with music, the stuff we like, the stuff we don't like, what we use music for, our history with live music, all kinds of neat stuff.…
 
The dorks are back with another surprise news-related episode! Wizards made a massive announcement about upcoming products that are branded with non-Magic properties. The two examples given were Warhammer 40K and...Lord of the Rings? Whaaaaa? So the dorks spend an entire episode discussing this, figuring out what it could mean for the future, and t…
 
The dorks are back with...Monday Night Magic? Wait, this can't be right, let me go look. Yeah, the dorks are actually looking at the news! First up, WotC swung their banhammer wide, with a massive pile of casualties across many many formats. Holy crap. And then there was actual timely news! The day of recording, WotC unexpectedly revealed some info…
 
The dorks are back on card games this week! We begin by taking a look at a very important nugget of information hidden in an advertisement - the first time a ban was announced somewhere other than, you know, a ban announcement. Then we're changing gears to talk about what could very well be the biggest news Hearthstone has ever seen. Then we shift …
 
This is our first non-Magic podcast episode! To help us out on this momentous occasion, we are joined by Squee, formerly of Monday Night Magic. We're taking a look at remakes, reboots, remasters, rereleases, and legacy sequels across several different media - movies, tv shows, and video games. First up we try to define what we mean by all of these …
 
The dorks head back into Kaldheim to check out all the Sagas that we just missed during the last two episodes. Some of these are absolutely ridiculous, while the rest are just...well, pretty good actually. The art though! The Saga art is AMAZING in this set! Of course we also bounce around the rest of the card image gallery to find other neat stuff…
 
The dorks return to the Kaldheim Card Image Gallery and continue poking around at the awesome stuff inside. There's a brand new Vampire Dragon (Dragon Vampire?) that makes Brian extremely happy. There's a whole new pantheon of Gods to discuss, a whole mess of weird creatures to fear, the Snow Figure of Destiny to freak out about, and a land that RE…
 
After not recording a show for a solid month the dorks are finally back! And we're taking a look at Kaldheim for the first time! We'll hit the mechanics first and then bounce around the Card Image Gallery talking about whatever new cards catch our eye! Planeswalkers, snow, gods, a legendary squirrel? What a weird set. Kaldheim Mechanics: https://ma…
