Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome to the Goblin Lore Podcast!

In our forty-ninth episode, Alex and Joe discuss a goblin character not yet physically seen in Magic: the Gathering lore—Krark, of the Mirrodin goblins—and the clan he founded and inspired. This clan of goblins was the one that adopted Slobad when he was found cast out into the wilderness, but they are superstitious and irrational…

Much like the Gambler’s Fallacy in the real world! The two pick apart the little we know of this mysterious goblin tribe, the card Krark’s Thumb, and how both of these are a good lens for viewing the “hot hand” or “evening out” probability theory of the Gambler’s Fallacy in the real world.
