For episode 44, Geoff Moes (@ThallidTosser on Twitter), Nat Moes (@GrandpaBelcher), and Josh Chapple (@joshchapple) join David P. Baum, longtime owner of a card and comic book store in Northern Ohio. He doesn’t have a personal Twitter account, but (Pop! the store has one, as well as a Facebook page and Discord, if you’re interested.

Here’s the timestamped table of contents for your listening ease and enjoyment:
02:29 – Dave Discovers the Magic
17:39 – The First “Grand Prix” and SandCon
32:18 – Origins 1995
Total runtime – 45:39

As just a taste of the content, here's one of the first things we talk about: Dave gets his first boxes of Unlimited from a sports card dealer and sells them at a little sports card convention without knowing what they are. He opens some starters and “auctions” some singles, including Demonic Tutor. Did he sell a Black Lotus?

    @nofuture I thought it cast enchantments, Well that's embarrassing.

    Scholar doesn't really work with Omni, it only casts instant/sorcery/artifact and is a pretty inferior Show and Tell/thing to cast with Omni already in play.

    @nofuture Somewhere on here is a scholar of the lost trove oath thread with omniscience a few of those would give you a real good target if you milled only a few cards before hitting scholar and make playing show and tell give you access to the whole had you just reloaded with for 0 mana.

    Maybe something of a Combo Oath Shell with Scholar of the Lost Trove and a Tendrils kill. I think 1 Sphinx and 1 Griselbrand as targets.

    Could also lean a little on fast mana and rituals to fuel your disruption (Thoughseize and maybe even Hymn powered out by Dark Rit.) as getting hellbent is not the worst when you are exchanging your graveyard for your hand.

    I also imagine that Entomb as a tutor would be valuable as you can cast it on upkeep to make sure you have a critical combo piece and effectively choose which Oath target you want to hit by responding to your own Oath trigger .

    An important question is if you will be able to effectively play Tinker-Citadel with 2 extra 7 mana spells in your deck.

    My guess is that it would be hard to play more than the restricted blue package (no fow/preordains) to have enough room for rituals and other combo pieces.

    I think about a list when I have a spare moment.
