    What is Everyday Eternal?

    For those unfamiliar with Everyday Eternal, it is one of the oldest Magic podcasts focussed on competitive Legacy (and we like to claim: sometimes also Vintage.) Together with our hosts Eric Landon, Callum Smith, Matt Pavlic, Julian Knab, and their funky guests, we’re bringing you the latest news and technology from the world of Eternal Magic. God, could our iTunes be any more generic? 









    For the final episode of the year, the full triforce assembles once again, as we get military clearance to have Matt back on the cast. In the first part of today’s show, we try to stay on the topic of Julian almost qualifying for the Pro Tour through the Legacy Showcase Qualifier, playing the weirdest version of Elves to date, but the conversation escalates the most absurd discussion of the year..thus far. Once things get back on track we dive deeper into one of the highest-profile/stakes event of the year, as Callum rediscovers his desire to crush the MTGO meta. Someone brings up Siege Rhino.

    For the second half of the cast, we discover the three of the biggest news items in Legacy and/or Magic as a whole. The one that completely blindsided everyone surely was Wizards of the Coast selling(?) MTGO and everything that comes with it to Daybreak Games – a company both famous for killing off dying games BUT ALSO rejuvenating games stuck in a dead-end. Only time will tell where MTGO will be headed under their leadership, but Julian has a revolutionary idea of what this might actually mean for the MTGO economy. We also cover all the upcoming big Paper events, and why everybody’s favourite lazy Sunday afternoon activity is about to come back.

    Alex ‘Vivarus’ McKinley joins Callum & Julian to celebrate his recent win in the Eternal Weekend Vintage Mox Emerald Championship. Alex and his crew applied specific principles to constructing the Grixis Tinker Breach list that guided him all the way to the trophy, and we promise only 90% of it is gonna about playing the most broken card they could find. Is Preordain secretly the best still unrestricted spell in Vintage?

    In the second part of the show we take a look at Legacy, and its pathological addiction towards adding more colours to decks – and getting away with it! Especially the most recent Challenges & the NRG Series have driven this trend up another notch. However, unlike during previous Blue Soup Seasons, there’s a noticeable trend towards loading up on Wastelands and Life From the Loams, instead of adding a 5th colour. Seriously, what happened to everybody’s favourite trend of 5c Blood Moon? Towards the end Julian is interested in bringing back an old classic, but Callum is just dead inside 🙁

    With the three BIGGEST Legacy events of the year in the books, Callum & Julian invite Danish Doomsday deity Martin ‘nevilshute’ Nielsen to the cast! Martin just finished runner-up in the biggest of last weekend’s Legacy events, nearly taking home the Sylvan Library painting. Martin tells us all you ever wanted to know about Doomsday, and why sometimes you don’t even need Thassa’s Oracle to win.

    In the second half of the cast, we go over the top finishers of all three events – and discover maybe the WILDEST deckbuilding principle we ever encountered in a (successful) deck – definitely don’t miss the madness that is the 67 main, 12 sideboard card deck that made Top16 in of of these events!

    Callum & Julian review the most recent big event results, making a big discovery: UR Zoomer Control is ready to take the metagame by storm! Callum has all the background info on the deck, and Julian can’t stop loving it (and got an immediate 5-0 with it after the cast.) Definitely check out this deck as one of the hottest recommendations for Eternal Weekend, and learn why you need to alter your gameplay and strategy to play the deck to the best of its capabilities.

    For those new to MTGO, we also cover how to play in Eternal Weekend, and why the $25 USD “god-account” access that is available from November 15th to December 1st is a GREAT way to get into competitive Magic Online.

    “I see a red card and I want it painted blue. I could not foresee this thing happening to you.”

    – Mick “Painter’s Servant” Jagger (1966)

    Callum & Julian welcome Legacy Methuselah Marius Hausmann back onto the cast to discuss a wide range of topics, starting out each one’s performances in our fast-growing local Legacy events. Callum had a great run with UW Yorion Bomberman, Marius split the finals with his unique take on Painter, and Julian placed third after almost losing to Food Reanimator.

    Sparked by a discussion on our Discord, we then look into what people mean when they talk about the “true” Legacy metagame, and why context is so important to that rather controversial concept. Towards the middle of the show, Callum & Marius dive deep onto their different styles of Imperial Painter, while Julian is just excited he doesn’t have to sacrifice under .

    In the second part of the show we take a look at the Top16 results of the 240-players 4Seasons event that went down last weekend in Bologna, Italy. Following a player’s DQ while playing for Top8 in that event, the three of us get into a broader debate about splitting etiquette, bribery and community problems arising from it. Julian, while probably taking the harsher stance on it, still makes a point about whether the current way of handling things is still appropriate in a post-WotC-Organized-Play world.

    It’s common knowledge among podcasters that while a lot of your time & energy is focussed on producing content, every once in a while you have to renew your “Serious Tournament Player” membership. For Julian, his was up this month so he jumped straight into the Legacy Showcase Challenge and took it down. Easy as that, right? It helps when you have a BIG FLYING DRAGON or three on your side! Join us for this episode in which we not only recap all 11 rounds of the Showcase, but also focus on the exact style on UWr Saga Julian registered in the event. Lord Ozymandias had written one of the best guides of the year for this event, and it proved to be a most valuable asset to have while navigating through a whole bunch of Monkeys, Dragons and Constructs!

    Bonus: Callum has the most amazing birthday present for Julian! 🙂

Great content

Listening to it feels like playing Legacy. A friendly environment that we can still focus on details and try to become a better player while having fun. Keep up the good work!
