Geek & Sundry is at it again, launching Spellslingers, a YouTube series produced by The Guild’s Felicia Day that features other nerdy celebrities dueling it out at Magic: The Gathering.
Spellslingers comes out every other Wednesday and is hosted by tournament gamer Sean “Day” Plott. In the debut episode, he goes up against guest Planeswalker Rob Simpson of StarCraft II and Red Bull eSports fame(?)
OK, so I’ve never heard of him — but the show is fun to watch, and since I’m getting back into Magic (after not really playing much at all despite a healthy-ish collection over the years that goes back to the original set and lots of expensive issues of Scrye) and my young son loves the game, I could go for a LOT more content like this. How about you?
Completely relate to your comments. Saw Spellslingers last night and from start to finish it was very entertaining. Technically, the production quality is excellent – lighting, sound, camerawork and graphics all flawless. Whilst seeing a MTG game unfold was interesting enough, the banter between rob and sean made it that even more better to watch. A newbie could easily pick up MTG from watching a few eps of this. 20 mins well spent. I’ll definitely be a regular.
