Welcome to Casual Magic, a show about rediscovering the fun parts of Magic the Gathering. We talk about everything from Commander to casual draft formats like Battlebond and Conspiracy to duel decks and precons, all in a non-competitive and joy filled environment. It's not Magic without The Gathering, after all =)
Episode 80 - Andrea Mengucchi
Today I'm joined by one of the greatest players of the modern era, and absolute master of Legacy and Cube, Andrea Mengucchi. We have a lovely and far ranging conversation, and he's just a joy to talk to.
Episode 79 - James Wyatt and AFR
Today D&D Senior Designer James Wyatt joins me to talk about the beautiful fusion of D&D and Magic that is Adventures in the Forgotten Realms!
Episode 78 - The Wheeler Weaves as it Wills
By popular demand, my dear friend Ben Wheeler returns for a third visit, ostensibly to talk about deck building changes with the return of paper play, but really just to shoot the breeze about Modern Horizon 2 with me for a while. This one goes off the rails real quick, folks.
Episode 77 - Rebell Son
Today I'm joined by CEDH's favorite pink haired AI, Rebell! She's a real gem of a creator and has a brilliant mind for commander, and this was a fun chat.
Episode 76 - Kyle Hill
Today I'm joined by science educator and youtuber Kyle Hill, to talk about high end commander and also content creation.
Episode 75 - Marc Watson
Today I'm joined by game designer and Minecraft maven Marc Watson, as we discuss bling, game design, and the beauty of emergent gameplay in Commander.
Shivam is totally charming and lovable. He gets really good guests to come on his show. He’s not a pro player, nor does he have pro aspirations. Just someone who loves the game a lot. I am glad that he’s here to represent that kind of player.
I have to crank up the volume extremely high on this podcast. More than my other ones, like the command zone. Something is wrong with the volume level.
One of the Best!
Shiva has a true love for the game and it shows in every episode. It makes my ride to work a much more pleasant experience and for that I’m grateful. Keep up the great work and thank you for all that you do for the community!
Good conversational content
I generally listen to everything, though it sometimes strays from Magic, which is usually fine. Audio quality can be sub-par sometimes, though I think that can come from the remote nature of recording and not being able to control which microphone somebody uses. Interviews/chats have gotten better since the beginning!
