    Episode 220: Boom Goes the Dynamite (at the right time)

    Hello Podwalkers, and welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast!  We were fortunate enough to have Wizards graciously provide us with a free Preview Card for y'all from Outlaws of Thunder Junction. And guess what... IT'S OUR BUDDY BREECHES!! That's right we are doing a complete Goblin Profile around this legendary Goblin from Ixalan (and his good friend Malcolm). There's a lot to explore with Breeches's new card (most importantly his move to UR). So we hope you enjoy.

    There are two Artists for this card since there are two treatments!

    Check out Dmitry Burmak [https://burmak.ru/] and Michael Walsh [https://michaelwalshcomics.com/]!!
