Kudos: 
Kevin - Kudos to the first piece of hate mail Alex receives about Harbinger!  Also want to give out kudos to the new Recording website and software we are trying out.  Cast!  It makes the recording process much simpler and Kevin recommends it especially to anyone who wants to start out podcasting.  Tryca.st to test it out for free!

Alex - Also Kudos to the first piece of hate mail Alex receives! Also wants to give Kudos to the people at Xpedia for TD, who made changing his travel plans much cheaper and easier than he expected!  Thanks big finance!

Both - Picaroons Brewery in Fredericton, NB.  Alex has been drinking Picaroons during the cast, and it's made him very nostalgic for home.  Special shout out to Winter Warmer, which is Picaroons' potent 9% beer, perfect for beating that mid-December chill.  Check them out at picaroons.ca (Website under construction).

A week late, but still as exciting as ever, Kevin and Alex are going at it one on one!  

The guys take a good long look at what the universe will look like... tomorrow? Pointing out their favourite cards from the pack as well as some unique interactions they really love.

They are so excited about the decks they been trying out, they are just bubbling over with energy!  Their chat about recent decks turns into one about deck naming.  How do you name your decks?  Are you very literal with your designs like Kevin describes, or are you more fanciful in how you name your decks?

Single Card Spotlight is as strong as ever, and this week they take a look at an underrated trap card!  What will it be?  Will you be fooled?

The boys take their brand new segment out for a spin, and announce the winner of the "new segment" contest!  Congrats to the winner, your prize is on the way!  Do you agree with our picks in Keep or Mull (name pending)?
