The MNM crew didn’t manage to hit a Core Set 2019 Prerelease, but there was a Grand Prix this weekend so at least we have something to talk about. As is usually the case when a new set releases we have plenty of updates to the Comp Rules, Oracle text, and the MTR to cover. After that there’s a bit of news about Brawl, no news about Commander, the absolutely stunning SDCC promos, and a distinct (and purposeful) lack of cheesecake.
And yes, we named the episode this way solely so I could put a picture of a pangolin in the YouTube Thumbnail. They’re SO CUTE!
