erdnHello everyone and welcome to another episode of Riva’s Duel. We are back! Sorry we missed our spot two weeks ago. Due to the worst possible timing on some jokes, our episode was unfit to air (We go into this in depth on the podcast. Long story short, we made a bunch of jokes about guns, gun control, and how easy it was to buy a gun in Wyoming and almost posted it the same day as the shooting in Orlando. Since we’re not sociopaths and out of respect for the people affected, we opted not to post our episode. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people affected by this tragedy.). However, we are now back and ready to give you our thoughts on Eldrich Moon Spoilers (Hello Emrakul and creepy angel art that will haunt my nightmares.) as well as our full look at Eternal Masters. Normally we wouldn’t review a reprint st but there is enough awesomeness to merit us gushing over it. What are you looking forward to in Eternal Masters? Give us a listen and let us know in the comments below. Since this is a review show, there are no full shownotes, just sit back and enjoy.

A budget for Magic is no different than it would be for a business. Creating an efficient budget maximizes the impact of your existing collection and builds value in your collection over the long term. Much of the advice in this article will sound obvious or even silly, but I promise it works. I use these strategies in my personal life and in my business, so my money is exactly where my mouth is.

Oh, you didn’t know? Your ears better call somebody, because it’s time for a new episode of Coast to Coast Commander, a multiplayer variety podcast for casual players! Three Commander players from the Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Pacific sit down and talk shop on all things Commander. This week the boys share their thoughts on the Commander 2016 announcement, find a deck on Tapped Out in need of some cuts, and share a high-end Magic accessory for players looking for that something extra.

As of this writing the Eternal Masters full spoiler has officially been revealed, and while I initially had the idea to look at it from a horde perspective, I discovered that there wasn’t a lot in the set for Horde, so instead I’m going to give you my thoughts on the set, whether they are Horde related or not. This is going to be a bit more Stream of Consciousness than my usual, with more topics and less focus than usual. So, let’s dive in.

This week’s Stack of Stacks are a whole lot of fun.

EPISODE 22 – TAY SWIZZLE TWIZZLER

Twenty-two is an important number in Taylor Swift Circles, so we named this episode after that, then said a bunch of stuff, and talked about the top 5 female characters on Magic cards.

EPISODE 23 – WHO LIKES TO ROCK THE PARTY (PARTY)

Andrew W.K.’s foray into politics, Starcraft duel decks, and the 30th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda are Aaron and Eric’s topics of discussion. Angry rants about MtGO, as well as the Banned and Restricted update, are also included as part of the regularly scheduled program.

EPISODE 24 – BAIT, SWITCH, RE-BAIT, REPEAT… 

Aaron and Eric talk about a lot of Magic stuff this week, including the Netflix documentary “Enter the Battlefield,” the Community Super League, PT Shadows, and all the rigmarole poor Helene Bergeot has had the unfortunate job of communicating.
