378127_10150441621792624_1477312954_nrdorange smallnolenew90Welcome to another edition of Rival’s Duel. This week, Eric and Nole are getting into spoiler season full bore. While they did not yet have every card spoiled, they did have all of the legendary creatures. They go over them, as well as talking about the newest planeswalker. Finally they pit two of the new gods against each other in a wildly speculative beatdown. As always, show notes after the break.

0:00-16:00- Introduction and Reader Mailbag.

This episode seems to be Eric’s turn for fan mail. We tackle several topics, from lands that enter the battlefield tapped to the perceived nature of “goodstuff” decks.

16:01-41:02 Oh my Gods!

The complete pantheon of Theros has been revealed and there are sweet cards to finish it up. Eric and Nole are both excited about these new cards and give you their take on these 5 new gods, as well as the new gold-cursed king and the new planeswalker, Ajani, Mentor of Heros.

41:03- 53:50 Baseless Speculation Time!

So nothing is more fun than looking at cards in a vacuum and trying to guess what will have an impact on standard. In this segment Eric and Nole both pick one of the new gods of JOU and debate which one will have more impact on Commander. This is the segment that you’ll want to re-listen to in six months to see how badly they did.

53:51-End Outro and Closing
