James and Graham talk about their prep for GP Portland, and everyone talks more about their initial impressions of M15 limited.

Orcish Lumberjack is five mana on turn two. Turn one lumberjack. Turn two drop the forest, tap both lands, sac the forest for a total of five. Surprisingly efficient ramp.

I'm gonna be "that guy."

The air in that Ice Age pack would have heard of Bill Clinton. He got elected to his first term in 1992.

But, I can't criticize Cam too much. He knows far more about U.S. Presidents than I know about Canadian Prime Ministers.

It's possible Cam was referring to the air not hearing about the scandal with Clinton, not Clinton as President.


As for the TTC... it was good.

That's how I took it. I went back and checked it out, and Cam's words were "That air has not yet heard about Bill Clinton" -- since he said "about" and not "of", I think that's what he meant.

Interesting note on Sibilant Spirit: it was printed at a time when Mahamoti Djinn was considered to be too good of a creature, so Wizards essentially created Sibilant as a replacement for the Djinn, you know to bring the power level of insane creatures like Mahamoti Djinn down so that weak spells like Necropotence, Brainstorm, Swords to Plowshares and Force of Will would have a fighting chance in the format.

The sad thing: not joking.

The sadder thing: I finally have reached the point where I will sign up for a forum to show off my useless bits of trivia. Guys, I think I need actual help. Also, hello, big fan, you guys are great.
