    Commented on the wrong section earlier. Doublingseason’s ebay article seems to have been pulled. It comes up on google but the link is dead. Was that article truly too good to be free?

    You’re correct, the article was missing earlier, but seems to be back up now. Here’s a link:


    Thanks for the heads up!

    Great episode. For your next Michael J. reference, I’d love it if you talked about his “Where is White Wheenie? ” article from TCG Player, because seriously there ought to be something like it stomping around what with Red Deck wins rearing its head again.

      Hey A.G.,

      Thanks! We recorded earlier today and unfortunately I forgot about this comment, but I’ll write it down to talk about next week!

      Thanks for listening,

    I know there’s plenty of other stuff to talk about as it is, but that’d be awesome!

    Wow, a 1-month callback on my comment! I’ll add some follow-up via email. I figured the comment just got buried after a while; plus I posted it around the time you guys were doing a lot of website/podcast background work.
