A podcast do-over for the first batch of spoilers for MM2015, and we enjoy an older crack-a-pack.

Prophecy is the set with the crystals symbol.

As I recall, the set symbol for Weatherlight is actually the Thran Tome, and important piece of the Legacy Weapon.

It's ironic that Kathleen predicted infect being in MM2015 while talking about Noble Hierarch, since the very same article that spoiled Hierarch also confirmed that infect didn't make it in. (Maro mentions it in the second paragraph after the Epic Struggle art.)

Lacerator is in because the black/red draft archetype is aggro.

Seriously, I'm thinking y'all need to read the articles on the official MtG website more often. They explain a lot of the stuff you guys are wondering about and hypothesizing over.

I don't know anything about the Seismic Swans deck, but I really hope it runs Dakmor Salvage and Creeping Renaissance for maximum lulz.

Uh, Serge? Hurkyl's Recall has never been anything but a rare, dude.

I have Profane Command in two of my EDH decks, and it has done so much work. Personally, I typically use it to kill a creature and take a healthy chunk of life out of my opponent. Sometimes I use the reanimate mode, but, of my two decks with Profane Command, one is a control deck without a whole lot of reanimation targets, and the other deck has so much reanimation (and Sheoldred as the commander) that I frequently have nothing worth reanimating when i cast Profane Command. So my results are skewed there. I have used the fear mode a couple times, though it was always only on one or two guys, to push through lethal when I didn't have enough mana to kill my intended target with the life loss outright.

Yeah, they've been talking about the different draft archetypes in MM2015 there for quite a bit. R/U Elementals, G/B Token Sacrifice, W/B Spirits, U/W Metalcraft/Affinity/TMASB, some kind of G/X Eldrazi Ramp (likely G/R judging by Apocalypse Hydra), G/W Tokens (return of the Thallid Bowl?), R/B Bloodthirst Aggro... they haven't hit all the color pairs yet, but I imagine G/U is still the base for 5-color goodstuff going by the presence of all 10 Ravnica Karoos.

From what I can tell, MowDownJoe has the right archetypes. The only ones that haven't been confirmed are R/W, U/G, or U/B.

And Hurkyl's Recall doesn't see a TON of play in Modern, but it seems more play in older formats where artifacts are king.

Well, guessing by the full spoiler, R/W is Equipment and G/U is Graft/Proliferate. And U/B is... skies? Faerie tribal without any faerie tribal stuff?

So the dream is: Pay into profane command to reanimate Iona, and dome them for 9. Remand.

Thanks for the show.

Show the cards off to the side if fine. I like it. It works.

I now call this episode the clique/click episode.
