Hey Mark! I'm a huge fan of everything you guys do. I wouldn't have a lot of the friendships or as close of a bond with my fiance if it weren't for this great game. Thank You for the Magic that is MTG! Today happens to be my birthday and I was hoping I could have some trivia on the Sword, Shield and Helm of Kaldra?

I came up with the idea of the Kaldra cycle. It actually required a little salesmanship on my part because others weren’t convinced we should reference a card that wasn’t printed yet. I think Helm of Kaldra was the first Magic card to do that.

Happy Birthday!
