Magic: The Gathering player, podcaster, & broadcaster | Former event commentator for the SCGTour | Photographer
Joey Pasco has been playing MTG since January 1995, and discovered his passion for blue-based control in the early 2000s (special thanks to Vedalken Shackles). After launching Yo! MTG Taps! with bhj in 2009, he spent 3 years having a blast doing commentary for the StarCityGames.com Open Series on what's now known as the SCGTour. In 2012, YMTGT went on hiatus, so Joey joined the In Contention podcast as a host alongside Matt Kranstuber and Reuben Bresler after Sam Stoddard left the show to work for Wizards of the Coast.
In October 2019, Joey launched DrawGo Designs, a line of apparel directed at fellow MTG players. (Hint: You can get YMTGT apparel here too!)
Joey's favorite format is Modern, where Azorius Control and Jeskai Control are his longtime weapons of choice.
Joey lives in Baltimore with his wife, Christina, and their daughter, Aurelia.

A seven-parter! In this episode, we go over lots of different topics, most of which are in Section A. The other sections are each broken down by color as we discuss everything that had been spoiled at the time of the recording. (Monday, January 18th). Our friend Tim joins us on a rare weekday off for him. This one is a little epic.

We discuss the spoiled Worldwake prerelease foil Comet Storm! Should it be mythic? Also, we recommend a few non-storyline related MTG books to spend your Christmas money on!

Please excuse the sound quality. We were recording in the car and apparently there was a bad connection between my microphone and iPod. Luckily for you, this episode is a short one!

In this episode, we forego the conclusion of our “nostalgia talk” from last episode to discuss the current state of Standard.

This episode is primarily introductions and MTG nostalgia, but in future episodes we’ll be moving onto discussions of Standard, news, and other Magic-related topics.
