Talking with Tengu ep 1: Legacy Lands vs Dragonstorm with Pleasant Kenobi

It’s true to say there are a lot of content creators in our community. From cosplayers to deck brewers, those of us who choose make content for this hobby are as varied as the number of decks we can create. But who are we really? What inspired us to do what we do? What are our hopes for the future and that of the game we love? A few months I started work on a new project for our little site to answer those question, and today I’m happy to bring you the fruits of those labours. So, welcome one and all to the first episode in a new series to the site. Talking with Tengu.

During the course of this series I’ll be interviewing member of the Magic community, finding out more about them and why they do what they do. But don’t worry if you were hoping for some Magic action, as we will be playing a game on MTGO while we do the interview. The format will be chosen by the interviewee, so expect a lot of different and fun formats over the series.

A quick note before we start proper. I wanted to get this series started before Guilds of Ravnica hit the shelves, but I ran into some difficulties during filming. Some recordings didn’t go as well as I would have liked, and we had to re-record some of the episodes. My guests were all superstars about this and helped me immensely to get this series of Talking with Tengu off the ground. I had a blast talking and playing games with them, and I just wanted to take a minute to give them all a heartfelt thanks. They are all fantastic members of our community, and I hope you all enjoy getting to know them a little bit better. With all that said let’s get to our premier episode with our first guest, Pleasant Kenobi.


The UK’s number 1 content creator, Vince (otherwise known as Pleasant Kenobi) is a man known for meme’s, amazing facial hair and his love for Death and Taxes. Having a strong following on both Twitch and YouTube, Vince has cultivated a unique brand with his black comedy and exciting brews. He is also one of the nicest people in the community, always willing to help out fellow content creators despite his insane work schedule. But what about the man under the beard? I sat down with him to play a game of Legacy and to find out more about this master of memes. He would be playing Legacy Lands, while I would be trying to Storm off with Mono-Red Dragon Storm. Now, on to the video.
