Every card in the deck has either the word pod or cast in the name (except basic lands cause come on guys!) a terrible idea but fun to try to get to work on my part. If nothing else the deck is very cheap!

The Breakdown

Part 1: Exalt! 

{{Ethercaste Knight}} {{Sighted-Caste Sorcerer}}

Just as creatures with exalted need others with exalted to help them, a Podcaster needs listeners to help them. The Exalted on cards like [[Ethercaste Knight]] and [[Sighted-Caste Sorcerer]] form the core of the deck they allow you to attack with one strong creature. Which is greatly appreciated in such a low powered deck.

Part 2: Other Power Ups

{{Mortarpod}} {{Plaxcaster Frogling}}

We can't solely rely on cards with exalted... because theirs only eight in the deck. So, cards like [[Mortarpod]] and [[Plaxcaster Frogling]] help power up those big attackers. [[Plaxcaster Frogling]] also helps protect the creature we want to exalt and buff.

Part 3: The Power Up Targets

{{Gargoyle Castle}} {{SandSteppe Outcast}}

The creatures with exalted or plaxcaster frogling are fine to attack with but wouldn't it be better to attack with some sort of evasion, like unblockable... well the best we've got is flying. We can put some flying creatures in play with either [[Sandsteppe Outcast]] or [[Gargoyle Castle]] and you can start swinging in the air for big damage.

Part 4: The Back Up Plan

{{Dromoka Dunecaster}} {{Thoughtcast}}

If those flyer producing cards evade you like the listening ears of an audience then cards like [[Cast Out]] and [[Dromoka Dunecaster]] can clear the way for you to attack with your non-flying creatures. [[Jace, Cunning Castaway]] and [[Thoughtcast]] help find some sort of solution as you inevitably fall behind your opponents non-gimic deck. And Jace also gives us creatures to attack with.

Part 5: The Pitch

If you find this or my other decks at all funny you might check out my podcast "From Our Perspective" to gain a [[New Perspective]] (see what I did there). Is this shameless self promotion... yes, I'm desperate. Its a "comedy" podcast about random stuff from board games to [[Conspiracy]] theories and maybe a card games episode is around the corner. I would love to rub it in my co-stars face that I brought viewers from a magic deck building website. You can find it on Itunes, Spotify, Podbean, and Youtube. so give us a listen... please... I'm begging you. -Sam
