Hello Podwalkers,

Welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast! Today’s episode focuses on card names in Magic. It started out as a Goblin Game episode but as we progressed (with minimal tangents) it was clear this episode needed more time. Alex introduces us to the ways in which names can function within design space, and also how they are a limited resource that Wizards has to manage. This becomes particularly interesting when we move into the silver-bordered world! Also Hobbes gets giddy talking about card names that are set names…
