YMTGT is back! As of 2019, Joey and bigheadjoe have reunited and are releasing episodes on a bi-weekly basis. Join us as we discuss Standard, a bit of Modern, and likely at least some #ArenaGrumping.

Yo! MTG Taps! is a Magic: The Gathering podcast created in 2009 by hosts Joey Pasco and bigheadjoe Panuska. In 2014, Joey took some time off and was replaced by Stephen Marshall until April 2016. After a nearly three-year hiatus, the show has been relaunched with the original lineup. Past sponsors include StarCityGames.com and LegitMTG.com.

Joey Pasco has been playing MTG since January 1995. Around May 1995 he taught bigheadjoe how to play, and a bond originally created by a mutual love for Nirvana was strengthened. They began Yo! MTG Taps! after deciding that a show name that good couldn’t just sit on the shelf of unrealized ideas. At the insistence of Michael J. Flores, they decided to take the show seriously, and were picked up by StarCityGames.com as a result. This led to a short stint for bhj, and a long tenure for Joey, on SCGLive (now known as the SCGTour), providing coverage for the StarCityGames.com Open Series, and Joey even had a vote for the Pro Tour Hall of Fame. All because they shared a passion for this crazy game, and a friendship that created an undeniable chemistry on their podcast.

Stephen Marshall began using Magic cards to play games that bore no semblance to the official rules of Magic: The Gathering sometime in 1994. He then took a brief (two-decade) break from the game after Ice Age was released and Magic was ruined forever. Stephen is a deck hipster, preferring to play rogue strategies whenever Burn is not viable. If there is a new deck putting up results, he was probably playing it before it was cool, and before it was good. He can be found on MTGO under the username moonpi and is available 24/7 for playtesting or vicious trolling. Stephen joined the show in 2014.
