I Love You, Mana

Sep 9, 2021

That’s right, folks. we’re bringing back ILYM PRESENTS—a series that, in a departure from the chaos of our main feed, hones in on a specific topic related to the children’s card game we all know and love. 

And who better to deep dive MTG Stonks with than, friend of the show, Uber Chewy (Chris), who started it all with Stonks Part I (You can find Pt. 1 here). This time around Chris brings his buddy and investment expert Alex along for the ride to teach Zach, Belly (Micah), and Mike how to make the money printer go brrrrrr (or at least how to start thinking about collectibles as investments).

Other topics discussed: 

  • Hayao Miyazaki films (notably Nausicaa Valley of the Wind) and the 2013 documentary, The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness.
  • The Pucatrade trading platform (Micah incorrectly calls them pucacoins--they're pucapoints)
  • Neil Gaiman and his article “Good Comics: And Why You Should Sell Them”
