Breaking with the usual format of the Deck Tease, Oestrus spends a lovely afternoon having a chat with Adrienne Reynolds, a respected member of the Magic community who is becoming more widely known for her opinions and theories on what it might take to make the Magic community and the scene at large a much better place.
The two of them do away with the usual show notes and instead share stories about what games led to them becoming interested in Magic the Gathering, their views on the lack of resources in the community for new or intermediate level players, ideas on how to bridge the gap between low level and competitive play, what it would take to make Magic as an online sporting event more interesting, and much, much more.
This special episode clocks in at an impressive 2.5 hours long and is largely uncensored and unedited, but is sure to not disappoint.
EDIT: At one point Adrienne makes reference to an article Darwin Kastle wrote, where she stated it said he spent $25,000 a year in travel expenses. In actuality, he said that at his peak he was making about $30,000 a year from Magic and spending about $12,000 annually on travel expenses. We apologize for any confusion.
