@matori I'm trying to hunt down pictures from people that took them but haven't gotten any responses.

Ben's box had:

  • Animate Dead print

  • Foil Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver

  • Miscut Revised Rocket Launcher

  • Alpha Mountain

  • 2 fbb Chinese Llanowar Elves

  • An envelope that could be traded for 2 deck boxes.

  • The envelope had a Tundra in it.

  • The 2 deck boxes had Middle School staples.

There was also a suitcase provided as a prize. It had a bunch of random stuff in it! Nat tweeted a few of the pictures I took after I opened it:

https://twitter.com/GrandpaBelcher/status/1103043968537907205

It had:

  • The Junior Classics 2 Stories of Wonder and Magic book by Collier

  • Helm of Obedience

  • 1000 piece puzzle

  • Nikolai Vodka

  • Clown nose

  • Sun glasses

  • Stickers

  • Deck Box

  • Toothbrush

  • a No one can beat my Dad mug

  • a Rick Astley Whenever You Need Somebody cassette tape

  • Tylenol

  • Shower cap

  • Pojo's Unofficial Total Magic the gathering Special Magic 10th anniversary book

Apparently the Tylenol and Shower Cap were already in the suitcase when it was acquired.

I believe the issue was brought up to Kevin and Steve and they had to fix the audio issue and re-upload the episode to Eternal Central. So if you download it again, it should be fine!

Yeah I asked Patrick and Matt for their lists yesterday but haven't heard from them. I think Matt picked up Assassin's Trophies at the store and Patrick played U/W/R Landstill because he comfortably played U/W Landstill last time but I believe he said the deck was not where he wanted it to be.
