I’ll probably shoot and post episode 10 by Sunday. Prereleases are happening, and I’m playing in one at midnight on Friday, and possibly one Saturday afternoon. The shooting itself for this show shouldn’t take long, but I probably need to make some stills for it, because the modifier stats are kinda small.
I am hard at work on scripts for the next few shows, but instead of doing a regular show next weekend I’m going to ditch the script and bust out my camera stand and shoot me cracking a box of Born of the Gods. I know cracking a box is a popular Youtube format, and I’m not against shameless pandering. But cracking a box isn’t something you can script for. I’ll probably practice by ‘opening’ some packs from my cube and just talking through them.
My cube is ginormous (700+) and has a few themes to it, but that is a topic I’ll save for when I need a break from set retrospectives.
After Vanguard and the box opening video, my next project is Masques block, then Odyssey block. I might get a deck retrospective in the mix too, which will in all likelihood be my Vintage foiled-out deck. Fallen Empires and Homelands are on the wish list as well.
I was a kitchen table player from around Homelands to Tempest block, so while I can talk about Homelands or Mirage block, I don’t think I can really attest to mainstream player reaction very well at the time. I could do the research for these periods, but it would entail appropriating a lot of other people’s writing, and I’d be worried about doing that and not giving credit. That kind of thing matters.
Also, I’d bet dollars to donuts that Wizards will send Nathan Filion a care package if they can find his publicist’s address.
