Maybe they're ovoviviparous like boa constrictors. That makes the most sense to me.

(Also, I love Gary.)

While the intro didn't do much for me, man the rest of that was pretty good. Baxter's meow and Cam's "this is real life" line were both perfect.

This video wins forever on account of reference to Uncle Istvan.

I was so sad to see that he had been revised -_-

Thank you for calling him Gary. I've been trying to get that to catch on at my store, but there's some opposition from the Gary = Garruk camp.

I'm really liking these, by the way. This has been the strongest so far.

I don't know, this one was good sustainment but it didn't pop as much with me as previous episodes did.

I found Cameron and Alex's appearance at YJ to be more filler than content. The debate at the start was kind of interesting and set up the hydra battle, but I would have liked to see more focus on dueling the hydra, which is the step on the path, rather than a sidebar.

I didn't understand anything anyone said in this video, but Kathleen is wearing the scarf I made her and that is super awesome! :)

Having two heads is actually a relatively common mutation among snakes IRL, from what I understand.

Also was your cat meowing at that exact moment in the script, or did it just happen, and you guys decided to keep it in?

Less that it's common, more that it's more common than in other species' (though I guess that was implied from 'relatively'). This frequently ends badly for the snake; the two heads (which are actually different animals, the same as in Siamese twins) will frequently disagree and have been known to cause serious injury as each tries to move in a different direction, potentially causing them to start to tear apart. That, or the two heads fight and one ends up killing the other; watching the victorious head attempt to deal with the now dead weight attached to it (generally by trying to eat it, I think- this is pushing my knowledge to its limits) is apparently quite an interesting sight.

Well you know what they say, two heads are better than one. Unless you're a snake.

If I was not retired from magic after my one year trial run, I would totally love to try the Hydra thing.

And the part with Gary killed me. Even though I don't understand it.

Loved Graham talking to Baxter. He's so cute (as is the cat).

...turning the conversation in a slightly less reptilian direction, I for one thought Baxter was totally on board for the giant unkillable kitty story.

Sorry I'm late to the party, but this is KILLING me.

On turn 2, Graham summons an Omenspeaker. What on earth does Kathleen summon? I did a Gatherer search for black two drops in Theros and I can't find anything that sounds like it. It sounds like she says "Swamp, Shred Freak."

That's it. I was stuck on finding it in Theros.
