I don't play Magic, so I don't know if the terminology is correct but the game is a big part of the episode. There is also a lot of real games in the background of the game store. Few weeks ago was Zombicide on South Park, now Magic.

I didn't see the humor in this at all with the chickens playing MTG. I must be missing something.

The Babylon Project was our last best hope for peace. It failed. In the year of the Shadow War, it became something greater, our last best hope for victory.

They were just multitasking, taking on the hardcore MTG gamers, but also dealing with cockfighting.

Didn't see the episode.

But if you play in Magic tournaments, you're likely to run into a cock or two.

Brilliant episode. I chuckled. Everything to promote gaming, right?
I hope they will someday make fun of ameritrash/eurogames...

Brilliant episode. I never played MTG but all the yadda-yadda sounded legit to me. I am sure it is, South Park is brilliant.

The card names were from Magic, but how the did the mechanics were shown related to the cards and game-play were fairly incorrect. It's just like the WoW episode they did, terminology and general feel was fairly correct, however, no one could duplicate the episode in the manner it was shown in the show in the actual game.
