  1. Great cast but no discussion at all of oath of Nissa? Potential non blue card selection. Seemed at least worth discussing.

  2. Regarding Overwhelming Denial as a offensive counterspell to protect your own spells (like Jace), doesn’t really work, does it? It doesn’t stop your opponent from just countering the original target again. Like this: You: Jace. I: counterspell targeting Jace You: Overwhelming denial targeting your counterspell. I: Another counterspell targeting Jace. It’s only really effective when you try to counter a card your opponent’s casting.

    • Yes, I think Stu P was a little over excited with the card :D. Sometimes its a struggle to find even average uses for cards in a set (in a legacy environment). Im pretty sure its unplayable. Although we have been wrong before. Plays through counterbalance, at least LD.

    • Short story – It makes loud things quieter and quiet things louder :). But they’re a really key part in more recording processes. Really, Im just learning more about production as I go through the episodes, which is why sometimes there is a sound quality “blip” in some episodes as I try some new things out. Its been a great learning experience for me too!

      • Guess the irony in “not a studio nerd” didn’t translate all that well in writing. (I’m very much a studio nerd, I’m afraid.). What make/model? ;o)

      • A-haha. I see :D. I’ve got 3. Ones a fairly rubbish one that I got when I first started recording anything – the Comp16 from Presonus. After that I got a Comp-54 MkII (made by the Golden Age Project – they based it on the old Neve designs). And the one I got most recently is the ART VLA II. Its stereo for buses and has a tube. Apparently it sounds 100000% better if you change the tubes. But I’m not so electronics savvy… :). Because, you know, sometimes you need to compress something to within an inch of its life :D.
