I enjoyed this episode in the way I always enjoy SMIP - it's the best MtG podcast out there, and I'm really grateful for you and Kevin for what you do.
However, it was a weird experience listening to predictions of cards that were already released and seeing play. In the future, I'd maybe consider a different approach to predictions when the cards are already out there. Betting big on Mystic Forge isn't really an insightful call when at the time of recording it was already putting up strong results.
But that’s not true. As I said in the original post we recorded this several weeks ago. Specifically, we recorded this the week of July 8th.
See: I zipped my audio file and upload it for Kevin on Thursday, July 11th, before the card was even officially released in paper:
we were predicting a card that had no top8 appearances at that time.
I was frustrated that this didn’t go live before the NYSE because I made big predictions about what I thought would top 8. But Kevin had some personal schedule conflicts and wasn’t able to get this up any earlier.
Knowing that, does it change you conclusions?
