The Finisher

Last weekend, Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa completed his trifecta of trophies: now the 2020 Magic World Champion, PV added that achievement to his shelf alongside his 2 Pro Tour championships from 2010 and 2017 and his 2 Nationals titles from 2006 and 2009. This has once again brought up the discussion of who the Greatest of All Time is: Kai, Jon, Luis, Nassif... or Paulo. So tell me: who is your all time MTG GOAT?

The Finisher

Last night in the United States, President Donald Trump delivered the state of the union address to the nation. In his opening remarks, he said: “The State of our Union is stronger than ever before.” Now, it’s that time for Magic Mics. So if you were to tell the Magic Mics nation the current state of affairs, what is your 2020 State of the Game address?

The Finisher

Alexander Clamilton. My name is Alexander Clamilton. And there’s a million games I haven’t won. But just you wait, just you wait. So now that the founder of the United States financial system slash Broadway musical cultural touchstone has been immortalized on a new Magic card in Unsanctioned like so many $10 bills (and $10 is a lot of clams), let’s turn it up a notch. What other Magic stories could Lin-Manuel Miranda’s genius spice up, if we’re not gonna throw away our shots?

The Finisher

This week, former Magic writer and current random action generator Travis Woo released a video this week in which he discussed… some things. “Multiple” things, if you will. In the interest of keeping the show PG-13, we won’t go into detail, but let’s just say Travis recorded, posted, and busted a 15 minute video about how best to “have a good time” in bed. Now, you might not take your sexual advice from the man who is best known for trailblazing Living End. But I know a winning idea when I hear one. So tell me: now it’s your turn to pitch your 15 minute sexual advice video. What are your tips and tricks for a “winning strategy?”

The Finisher

In one week’s time, the Early Access Streamer Event will be in full swing. #Sponsored. And that means that next week we will not have our regular show; instead, we will have 9 hours of fresh-from-the-witch’s-oven gameplay. Now, Theros Beyond Death is already Theros Beyond anything any grave cleric could possibly ask for, but tell me: we have a few short days of official previews left. But Standard hasn’t been perfect, and I for one think we could use an apology. So tell me: before we move into the brave new world of The Underworld, what amends would you like made?

The Finisher

Prada has a new campaign for a handbag featuring Magic cards…

https://i.redd.it/ek1ln0bj3q441.jpg

We haven’t been able to prove the truthiness of this ad’s veracity, but if it is legit the Italian luxury fashion house is using the world’;s premier trading card game to help sell their Prada Women’s Leather Bowling Bag, which by the way sells for $2,350 on their website. So this got me thinking. It’s the Christmas season, shopping time. Still a week before Santa comes down your chimney to deliver sealed boosters to all the good little girls and boys. What other luxury products can Magic cross over with to help sell their wares?

This just in: Pot of Greed allows its caster to draw two cards. And now, Bandai is selling a 1-to-1 scale Pot of Greed, made popular in the tv show and trading card game Yu-Gi-Oh and available on their shopping site sometime in April 2020. So I will start my joke by playing Pot of Greed, which allows me to draw two cards. But tell me: If you could have a lifesize version of any Magic card, other than Pot of Greed which allows me to draw two cards, what card would you pick?

The Finisher

 

**THANKS FOR SUBS + BITS GOES HERE FIRST**

 

#BabyYoda is so hot right now. With the launch of Disney+ and the release of the big Star Wars series “The Mandalorian,” few things have captured the hearts and minds of the internet quite as quickly or thoroughly as “The Asset.” And as we all know, nobody can capitalize and merchandize as well as Disney. But Magic has some amazing merchandising opportunities out there as well. So with Black Friday a week or so away and the holiday season right on our doorstep, what’s your pitch for the must-have can’t-miss Magic: The Gathering holiday toy of the season?

The Finisher

Begun, the streaming wars have. AppleTV launched earlier this month, Disney+ launched this week, and just a few hours later Netflix and Nickelodeon announced that they’d be jägering together to help fight against the new dogs on the block too. And Magic had their own entertainment debut this week too, albeit much worse than any of the streamer services, with the release of War for the Spark: Forsaken. Now, Magic: The Gathering is a big brand with gravitas and clout. So it’s a good feather in a streaming services’ cap. So tell me: what would you produce using MTG’s vast variety of fabulous characters and storylines to try to compete in the Stream Wars?

The Finisher

 

Breaking news here on Magic Mics, never before reported anywhere else: Oko is Broko. Banned in Brawl this week. Taking over Standard, Pioneer, Modern, Legacy, and now Vintage. We reached peak meme over the weekend, as a Black Lotus got turned into a 3/3 Elk to help attack for lethal in the vintage Championships. It seems that everything and everyone is all Elks all the time, and I’m not sure how many more bridges we have to cross before we achieve The Final FrontElk. So tell me: what else is left for Oko to conquer?

The Finisher

One of the most heartwarming stories of the week was about Reddit user “pudgimelon,” who simplified and cutified Magic: The Gathering for his 3-year-old daughter. Each deck has 20 cards: 12 “friends” (aka creatures) and 8 spells, all of which are sorcery speed. Toughness was done away with, each friend’s power is equal to its casting cost to simplify, and the turn order was further cut down to better allow preschoolers to understand. Now, we all have that player in our group who could use a 3-year-old’s version explained to them. So tell me: how would you help the preschooler in your playgroup grasp the complexities of Magic?

The Finisher

The word of the week is “crossover.” Magic: The Gathering and My Little Pony are combining forces to make legendary pony cards, because Friendship, as you know, is Magic. Wendy’s created a tabletop roleplaying game, of which the world’s most popular RPG show Critical Role played a #sponsored game, begging the question: “How Do You Want To Chew This?” And of course, the most ambitious crossover this week: Blizzard and Hong Kong. There were more crossovers this week than an Allen Iverson basketball camp, so as we further cross the streams, what is your personal brand’s next big crossover project?

The Finisher

Untitled Goose Game is taking Steam by storm. It was the #1 best selling game on the platform this week, beating out such major titles as Link’s Awakening and Minecraft. And it’s taking over Magic as well, with the new Gilded gander going great in games of Standard as well. So now that both Magic and strategic puzzle games have got their goose, how do you feel about our new avian overlords?

And while the show itself was a smash, what was even more of a smash… is the “smash” that occurred later when a fanfiction of PK and Tomer Abramovici of Budget Commander fame surfaced during the same weekend. And future MTG fanfics can’t be far behind. So as we fade to black on this episode, tell me the pitch for your future magical Magic fan fictions.

The Finisher

Link: https://kotaku.com/truck-carrying-gaming-dice-spills-onto-highway-rolls-a-1838218869 

On Friday, September 13, a truck bound for the Georgia-based tabletop and video game company Trivium Studios took a turn too sharply, spilling 216,000 gaming dice onto Interstate 75 in Atlanta in what could be the biggest unintentional dice roll ever. A representative commented, “Though unfortunate it happened, nobody got hurt and we now own an unofficial world record for the largest dice roll in history!” Considering the average roll of two six-sided dice is seven, and approximately 216,000 dice were rolled, Trivium estimates the roll totaled 756,000. The truck was undamaged, having made its saving throw. Now, this is big news, or maybe huge or gargantuan news based on how big this creature is, but tell me: the next time gaming “spills” into mainstream, how would you like to see it happen?

The Finisher

A lot happened today, a *lot*, but probably the biggest news overall is that the Magic: the Gathering Twitch is now a baking channel. Because for 30 minutes leading into today’s cavalcade of announcements, the Magic team were making gingerbread cookies in anticipation of today’s Throne of Eldraine announcements. So set your hot takes to 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and tell me: what’s the next dish you’d like to see served cold on Twitch.tv/magic?

The Finisher

Amongst the weirdest news stories this week was that HASBRO, the parent company of Magic, now has a new subsidiary: Death Row Records. The old school rap label founded by Suge Knight, The D.O.C., and Dr. Dre today is owned and operated Entertainment One, which recently inked a deal with HASBRO for 4 billion (with a b) dollars. Now, getting eOne also means that HASBRO can start making things associated with more toy-aligned properties like Peppa Pig and PJ Masks, but those are less interesting to me. So tell me: How do you hope Wizards of the Coast and West Coast collaborate in the future?

The Finisher

Somebody call Frank Karsten! Four-Color Kethis broke Standard at the most recent Mythic Championship Qualifier Weekend. Only a few people played the new combo deck, with both Ondrej Strasky and Stanislav Cifka managing 5-1s on Day 2 to qualify for MC5. With those impressive results, it seems the Czech is in the mail! Eh, get it? They’re bringin’ Kethis back. Well regardless, overly complicated graveyard-based iterative combo decks and StanCifka go together like Erin and the “block” button. But it kind of came out of nowhere, so tell me: what’s the next big surprise deck to take the metagame by storm?

The Finisher

For months, I’ve been asking the question: What is the MPL? Well, this week we finally got an answer. But sometimes when you reach the end of a quest, it leaves a hole in your heart. A knight who finally slays the dragon they’ve been searching for their whole life suddenly needs new purpose. So help me, friends: now that there is a clear path to the Magic Pro League and my grail quest has come to an end, help me find purpose again by telling me: what should my next quest be?

The Finisher

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/argentsagatcg/argent-saga-trading-card-game 

Argent Saga from games-maker ARG is a new game with a very popular Kickstarter and an ever-increasing following thanks to Gen Con that’s just come out. Problem is, they’re one set in and we’re already hearing they have a metagame problem. Stop me if you’ve heard this one: they have issues with a lack of graveyard interaction, an overpowered creature in a graveyard-based deck is a main culprit, and a box-topper as one of the most powerful cards in the game. Now, we Magic folks are fortunate that we can survive a Saviors of Kamigawa or three, but it’s tougher for the new kids on the block. So tell me: what advice would you give an Argent Saga fan hoping their game can keep on truckin’ past their second set?

The Finisher

You might not know it from the coverage of it on our Magic: The Gathering news show, but Magic: The Gathering is holding a competitive championship event this weekend. The artist previously known as the Pro Tour, Mythic Championship 4: Mythic Championship With A Vengeance is coming to you live from Barcelona, Spain this weekend in the ever-popular Modern format. Now, here’s a fascinating little detail: did you know that Magic still makes physical Magic cards? And the event this weekend will be using them. Weird, right? So tell me, as time soldiers on and all the snow-covered lands that were just printed in Modern Horizons start to melt back into regular basics, what are you hoping for this weekend at MC4?

The Finisher

 

This week’s Banned and Restricted update saw great upheaval in multiple formats, what with Bridge from Below, Paradox Engine, and Iona hitting the bench and Painter’s Servant coming back in from the cold. Now, not everyone is happy with these changes (particularly Faithless Looting once agains avoiding the hammer) and furthermore people aren’t super excited with the myriad of other unbannable options left wanting. So in the future, after more cards hit the graveyard (and make a bunch of 2/2 black Zombie tokens as a result) what are you hoping to see a return from in the format of your choosing?

The Finisher

This week we’re gonna talk about toothbrushes. Certain HASBRO toy shop customers who tried to buy War of the Spark Mythic Editions earlier this year were unable to, then told they’d be sent War of the Spark foil uncut sheets only to be sent, you guessed it, toothbrushes. Specifically, Quip brand, which advertises themselves as “simple, affordable, and surprisingly enjoyable oral care for everyone.” So once Erin stops laughing at the words “enjoyable oral” in a sentence, tell me: what would a toothbrush have to do in order for you to be happy with it coming instead of your foil uncut sheet?

The Finisher

In a story that is in the running for the most 2019 story of 2019, Bernie Sanders is now Twitch verified. Now, tomorrow night is when we’ll feel the Bern on stage, but tonight the junior senator from Vermont is free to try out the new WoW patch with his main, pwn noobs on Fortnite, or even try to his Diamond on his Arena account before the end of the season. But he certainly won’t be the last bonafide celebrity to get on board with live streaming. So tell me: what other big names would you like to see try out Twitch streaming and get their game on?

The Finisher

8 years ago this week, Jace the Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic were banned from the Standard format. Times sure have changed since then, with Stoneforge being bandied about for Modern unbanning every few months and JTMS these days merely being better than most. So in a few years when we look back at the bans that make her dance, what kinds of memories will you have?

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, commonly referred to as E3, is the premier trade event for the video game industry and is occurring this week in LA. Among those in attendance were the platonic ideal of wholesomeness Keanu Reeves announcing a brand new Cyberpunk game, Jon Bernthal brought his adorable pupper, and the whole world fell in love with Ghostwire Tokyo game designer and world’s most adorable human Ikumi Nakamura. So with Magic moving ever closer to the esports side, what announcement are you holding out hope for at E3 2019?

Yu-Gi-Oh! Adds Definition of, and Penalty for, Card Sharks:

https://twitter.com/MaxPlaysMTG/status/1136000969966116870?s=19

 

The Finisher

Our trading card game cousins-once-removed, Yu-Gi-Oh, recently added a rules update that codifies what a “rules shark” is and that attempting to “shark the rules” is punishable under Unsporting Behavior. Quote: “Official Policy documents may not serve as a resource for persons to attempt to take advantage of one another through rule sharking, or otherwise attempting to influence the decisions of judges or tournament officials. Rule sharking is defined as using rules and policy in an attempt to gain an advantage instead of to ensure fair and consistent gameplay.” This is on the heels of their recent other rules update hygiene policy was put in place. This is, of course, amazing work from the Rules Committee for Yu-Gi-Oh, and it got me thinking: what rules updates are you hoping for in the future?

The Finisher

The 1980s cartoon Dungeons & Dragons may be gone, but it is a pop-culture icon in Brazil, where the series remains incredibly popular. So much so that the French car manufacturer Renault (pronounced “WREN-OH”) made a Hollywood-production-level live-action commercial that brought the cartoon characters to life. The nearly two-minute-long commercial is complete with explosions, a magical bow shooting glowing arrows of energy, and, of course, dragons. And it wouldn’t be complete without the copyright, officially given permission by Wizards of the Coast… which opens the door to a future Magic crossover. So what product do you think Wizards should allow to license the MTG brand next?

Last Friday, ChannelFireball let the people know that some of their sales had been erroneously flagged by Amazon. Quote: “We previously contacted you regarding a new online training requirement to continue to offer pesticide products. You are offering, or have previously offered, products that are affected, including for example: Giant Spider, Netcaster Spider, Pallid Mycoderm, Root Greevil, Root-Kin Ally, Spitting Slug, and Spreading Algae.” ...Right... Well, clearly there’s been something lost in translation here, but this does allow for some, shall we say, creep. So what warnings would you like added to your future Amazon orders?

The Finisher

Space: The Final Frontier. NASA tweeted today that we’re going back to the moon, and this time it’s personal. Big news: permanent moonbases, coming by 2024. As JFK said, “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” But keep in mind: it’s going to be boring. No dance clubs, no bowling alleys, no water parks, just hiking and stargazing and rock collecting as far as the eye can see. The best way to fill those hours as far as I can see is Magic. So let’s say that the Magic Mics were selected to be the Moon Mics. What Magic things are you packing in your airtight foot locker when you boldly go where no Magic player has gone before?

The Finisher

If there’s one thing Erin loves, it’s viral twitter memes that lead to 20-tweet long threads that clog up her timeline worse than a Culver’s double butter burger with a concrete shake. So when @punishedcatdad launched a new campaign asking the burning question “what color do you associate with me,” obviously we were right on it. So with that in mind, and in honor of the patron saint of paints, Erin’s other favorite Bob Ross, what colors do you associate with your cohosts?

The Finisher

 

It’s the Mythic Edition,

hot and fresh out the system,

WotC sellin’ these boxes

everyone out here wishin’

That there were more than one

And EBay wasn’t so dumb

It’s the freakin’ worst way

To sell your pa-ra-FEH-nay-lee-UM (paraphenalium).

But with all of that remixed, now that War of the Spark Mythic Edition has come and gone in a matter of minutes, millions of dollars traded in exchange for shiny Ugins and Jaces, and much consternation has been raised yet again about the manner in which those goods were exchanged for said currency, what can Wizards do to make the sale experience better the next time around?

The Finisher

 

ChannelFireball.com announced a unique promotion this week, tweeting on Monday that for every pro-point Luis Scott-Vargas earns at the Mythic Championship in London this weekend, orders made before Thursday will be that much percent off in the CFB store. Now, this is a hell of an angle. And as a sales and marketing professional myself, I’m interested: since you all are excellent at building your own personal name brands, what’s your best sales pitch for a future viral marketing campaign taking advantage of a big Magic brand?

The Finisher

 

This week, Magic Mics was proud and privileged to present the brand new #sponsored official preview card Tyrant’s Scorn to the world, a spectacular uncommon that’s not just combination Smother//Unsummon and showcasing an amazing story moment from the upcoming War of the Spark where Nicol Bolas, the big bad evil guy of the last decade, swats the hero planeswalker Gideon Jura and breaks the epic Blackblade in half and… well… by this morning, you knew the rest. Yup, our preview got leaked merely hours before tonight’s show. Now, we’re no strangers to spoilers, having had Rhonas spoiled once upon a time and now this. And with the Russo Brothers jumpstarting a larger conversation about spoilers before Avengers: Endgame, spoiler alerts aren’t the exclusive domain of the Magic community. I think most of us can agree that getting spoiled on a card or a movie is not the ideal way to learn a story. So, with that in mind: let’s make lemonade out of spoiled lemons. How can we as a culture dissuade spoilers?

The Finisher

PC Gamer’s James Davenport wrote an article this week called "I Beat Sekiro's Final Boss With Cheats and I Feel Fine" in regards to using a mod to beat a video game. But that’s not the story here, folks; no, the story here is one particularly salty response on Twitter to the article that quickly became a viral sensation: “You cheated not only the game, but yourself. You didn't grow. You didn't improve. You took a shortcut and gained nothing. You experienced a hollow victory. Nothing was risked and nothing was gained. It's sad that you don't know the difference.” This amazing new block text immediately took off, spawning references on all subjects from speedrunning to easy mode to lifehacks and more. But it has yet to branch into Magic… until now. So let’s hop on the viral bandwagon, and tell me: what kind of shortcuts would send you into a similar tweet tizzy?

The Finisher

War for the Spark preview season is well underway, and while the cards themselves are certainly exciting (and we’re looking forward to discussing them all in our upcoming complete set review) nothing has been getting more attention than the War of the Spark Official Trailer featuring Liliana, Nicol Bolas, and a dope “In The End” cover, which now has nearly 6.5 million views on YouTube. So in light of “War For The Linkin Park” blowing up like Ariana Grande, what’s the next big break in Magic: The Gathering YouTube?

The Finisher

On the last surviving Tumblr page, Mark Rosewater’s Blogatog, the Head Designer for Magic: The Gathering said, “The Global Series started because we were making an entry-level product for China and wanted the content available for others. It wasn’t intended necessarily as an ongoing thing.” Basically, he has a slightly different definition of “series” than the rest of us. But I think there’s more possibilities out there for future Global Series, so with that in mind where would you hope the Global Series heads to next?

The Finisher

Sad new to report from the Magic content creation community now: CNN broke the news today that Brian “The Professor” Lewis from Tolarian Community College died in a tragic accident. According to the article, “The YouTube star passed away early this morning after being rushed to the hospital.” Now here’s the sad part: that was just totally not true. At all. The Professor himself tweeted out as soon as he found out about the article that he is totally fine. So that got me thinking: what incredibly salacious and totally untrue headline would get social media buzzing about y’all?

Planeswalkers in WAR that aren’t on cards

The Finisher

Tonight is the launch of the Magic Mics War of the Spark Complete Set Review Kickstarter, our third ever complete set review. Wizard announced that there will be more than 30 unique individual planeswalkers appearing in the set, making that the most ‘walkers I’ve seen in one place since my last visit to the nursing home. Ravnica’s about to be the hot spot. But here’s what I want to know: with all these big multiverse celebrities descending on the City of Guilds, where can a fan get the best glimpse of an planeswalking A-Lister?

The Finisher

Breaking news: the world’s top Bridge player has been banned for doping. Geir Helgemo was banned for a year by the Monaco Bridge Federation. Now, even though the med he tested positive for isn’t performance enhancing in Bridge, the Bridge Federation is recognised by the International Olympic Committee, and as a result they abide by their rules. But it is interesting to consider the implications of drug testing in Magic. So if the IOC brings digital athletes like Magic: Arena pros on board, how deep do you foresee that rabbit hole going?

The Finisher

This week, the hit SYFY show The Magicians referenced Magic! Well, it is about magic and magicians after all, but no! This time it referenced Magic: The Gathering, specifically a villain trading information for a Black Lotus. Now, Magic and The Magicians go together perfectly, and with hit shows like Stranger Things referencing D&D, HASBRO properties are hotter than ever. So where else would you expect to see products from the largest toy maker in the world pop up in pop culture?

The Finisher

Among the news that fell through the cracks this week is that the official hashtag for Mythic Championship Cleveland, #2019MC1, which was already ungainly, turns out shares its tag with the latest “semi-automatic polymer striker fired pistol” by the gun manufacturer Mossberg called the MC1SC. Now, Magic has run into the hashtag buzz saw before, most notably with the Montana Republican Party and the hashtag MTGOP, and later the cryptocurrency exchange “Mount Gox.” But surely 2019MC1 won’t be the last time this happens. So what other unfortunate hashtag mix-em-ups do you foresee coming down the pike?

It’s been a long year already and it’s only February, but don’t let all of the drama from the past week distract you from the fact that Jace is on Sparker, the Multiverse’s premier dating app! According to this viral advertisement from ChannelFireball, Jace the Heart Sculptor is Valentine’s ready! He’s Singleton and Ready to Mingleton! And he’s… also super cringey. This ad elicited many reactions from social media, and probably just as many left-swipes from fellow Sparker users. So my charismatic cohosts, how would you rewrite Jace’s bio to be less yikes and get more likes?

Ultimate Masters began as Graveyard masters and they went all-out instead Wotc not phasing out Modern, pay attention for something in Feb They’re not making budget cuts to coverage, they’re increasing…? No coverage announcements until everything is nailed down Matchmaking for Ranked draft changing to weigh heavily on win/loss vs ranking Best of 3 - jump two slots.

It’s been a week, y’all. Mythic Invitational, Mythic Edition, coverage going away, coverage returning, Nexus, Pauper, the judge program, and by god The Mountain Goats. Just like Hanukah, a small quantity of news oil miraculously lit show’s menorah for eight crazy nights. So since we have naught but 6 more days until the next Magic Mics, what, pray tell, do you think will be Magic’s next major announcement?

The Finisher

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York’s 14th joined Nintendo 64 speed-runner Hbomberguy during a livestream event this past Sunday that helped raise money for transgender kids. This is the latest in a trend of a mainstream celebrities embracing the Twitch audience, the most famous of which occurred last year when rapper Drake joined Fortnite streamer Ninja for more than 600,000 concurrent viewers. Now, Magic Mics is on Twitch. And we’re hip. Cool. “With it.” So if a major mainstream celebrity were to crash our party, who should it be and why?

Duplicate protection:

Opening packs: If you would open a 5th-copy of a card, it is instead replaced with a card of the same rarity that you don't have 4 copies of. If you already own 4 copies of every card in that set at that rarity, you instead get other rewards:

 

Mythic: 40 gems

Rare: 20 gems

Uncommon or common: Vault progress at the current rate

 

Limited packs: You can open (and pick) 5th-copy cards. If you do, it won't be added to your permanent collection but converted to gems or vault progress, as above.

Individual card rewards: You can still get ICRs that are 5th-copy cards, but they'll be turned into gems or vault progress, as above.

Today was the Magic Arena All-Day Ravnica Allegiance streamer event, which the three of us took part in today (#sponsored). We got to play all manner of sweet brews with the new set against other Magic Arena streamers, #sponsored, and we had a ton of fun. I would absolutely love to be a part of any future All-Day streamer events, #sponsored, so in the future what kinds of things would you like Magic and Twitch to team up to do?

The Finisher
For the first time in nearly 2 years, a new episode of one of the most popular Magic podcasts of all time, Yo MTG Taps, was posted by the hosts (and our friends) Big Head Joe and Joey Pasco, discussing Arena’s new prominence and Magic’s competitive scene. Now, we already live in a culture that is mono-remakes, adaptations, and reboots of classic shows from ages past, but this got me thinking: if we can resurrect Yo MTG Taps, what other series from Magic past can we bring back now that Arena and the Mythic championship have entered the battlefield?

HASBRO announced plans today for its first indoor water park and family resort, themed around some of its biggest toy and game franchises. According to sources, the Hasbro resort is set to open in a currently unannounced location by 2022. Now, surely rides and installations inspired by Monopoly, Hungry Hungry Hippos, My Little Pony, Mr. Potato Head, Candy Land and Nerf are going to be fun and all, but the headliner for us obviously is Magic: The Gathering. So tell me: what is your mythic idea for HASBROLand’s MTG experience?

Magic Arena Rank 1.0

https://www.reddit.com/r/MagicArena/comments/a34dg0/mtg_arena_developer_update_rank_10/

TL;DW: New ranking system incoming, but it is still the early stage of what they want, featuring season rewards and "balanced" advancement. This system applies to limited and constructed events. New matchmaking system that changes how players are matched in ladder and non-ladder play (which is also new.) Non-Ladder matchmaking will still be based partially on "deck strength" with some fine tuning coming soon.

 

Edit: Patch will hit on December 13th with State of the Beta on Dec 12.

The Finisher

It was announced this week that, beginning on December 17, the microblogging and social media website Tumblr will be banning all pornography on their website. And if you don’t know what Tumblr is, well, apparently you have until December 17 to find out. Several popular Magic blogs are hosted on Tumblr, including the Magic Bracket, tons of artists and cosplayers, and of course Mark Rosewater’s Blogatog. So now that Tumblr will be working out the kinks, so to speak, what changes do you expect to come to Magic: The Tumblring?

The Finisher

The folks at LoadingReadyRun are headed into Hour 131 of the Desert Bus for Hope 2018 over at twitch.tv/desertbus. Over the past nine years, the gang has (as of about 45 minutes ago) raised 5 million dollars for Child’s Play, a charity that donates toys, games and funds to children’s hospitals all over the world. The more money raised the longer the team has to keep playing Desert Bus, a minigame from Penn & Teller’s mercifully unreleased Sega CD Smoke and Mirrors. And while the cult classic game is widely considered to be the worst game ever made, I think maybe we can do better… or worse. So if you were hired to make the next best worst game ever, what would you make?

Game Director of Magic Arena Chris Clay announced *today* that Direct Challenges are coming to Arena November 15. That means that you’ll be able to challenge people directly, which means actual factual friends lists are soon to follow. Now I’m a fan of social mediums as much as the next guy, but I need another list of suggested friends like I need another LinkedIn request. But it’s coming, so in addition to having people like, tweet, favorite, share, and subscribe, now we’ll add Arena friends to the list, but how else can Magic add more to the gathering?

The Finisher

Tonight is All Hallow’s Eve, The Devil’s Day, Dia de los Muertos, Samhain, Hallow Tide… better known as Halloween. A time to celebrate fun-sized candy, pumpkin spice everything, and especially costumes. I’ve always liked costume parties and cosplay and masks, because everyone becomes themselves when they are dressed up safe as someone else. So on this, the only day of the year where it’s socially acceptable to show up at your day job as a clown unless your day job is as an actual clown, what Magic celebrity would you dress up as on the most wonderful night of fright of the year?

The Finisher

This morning, the internet received the solicitations for IDW’s comics coming out in January of 2019, including “Magic: The Gathering: Chandra #3”. And the cover art attracted attention for all the wrong reasons, not only because LOL Tibalt and his triple breasted jacket but also because of the yikesworthy cover art. Chandra at Tibalt’s feet feels like a pretty unrealistic scenario, but it is comic books! Thor was a frog once, and that is almost as bizarre. So since we’re in the land of make-believe where up is down, left is right, and Tibalt is all-powerful, what other storylines can you dream up for future Magic comics titles?

The Finisher

 

Jason Chan, better known on the Twitches and Twitters as “Amaz,” earned his first career Magic: The Gathering top 8 at Grand Prix Mexico City last week. The ludicrously popular Hearthstone streamer showed why he’s one of the world’s finest minds in competitive card games, and that his Pro Tour and Silver Showcase invites were no fluke. So with Amaz joining the ranks of Stan Cifka, Brian Kibler of Brian Kibler Gaming, and Kenny from South Park with a big Magic finish, who’s the next livestreaming celebrity you expect to make it to the knockout rounds?

The MTG Arena Rare Squeeze

https://www.reddit.com/r/MagicArena/comments/9keb18/rare_wildcard_bottleneck/

 

“Right now, looking at aetherhub.com's list of most used cards in MTGA, the top ten has one common and one uncommon, the rest are rare or mythic rare. The same statistic on hsreplay.net shows three common, three rare, two epic and two legendary cards. In other words, 80% of MTGA's best cards are expensive while in HS the distribution of cheap vs. expensive cards in the top #10 is almost exactly equal, leaning toward cheap.

 

It's kinda like if the government made a new law declaring that roof shingles can no longer be purchased in bulk but must instead be obtained in packages containing one roof shingle, a window pane, a tractor tire and a pair of jeans. These packages cost the same as the combined value of those items. Well, the price of a roof just skyrocketed. Especially if you didn't need new windows and don't own a tractor.”

Last week’s 24 hour Arena event was a big success, thanks in large part to Reddit user Fugiman and their Deckmaster plugin, which allowed for streamers of Magic Arena to utilize different hoverable zones that displayed the cards for viewers to read instead of waiting for the streamer to hover over the card. Now, having easy access to the hand, board state, graveyard, and exile zones is great and all, but I think the man known as Fugi has a gold mine here. So what other things would you like to be clearer in the future using the Deckmaster app?

For those of you looking at the Twitch directory and wondering why we’re the only ones not playing Arena right now, that’s because Wizards of the Coast is presenting the Guilds of Ravnica 24-Hour Early Access Streamer Event, and hundreds of streamers are taking part. Players from previous Preprerelease guests like ProJared and Noxious to esports folks like Kripp and Trump, Twitch is all MTGArena all the time today. Clearly this is the biggest Magic event of the past 7 days, at least according to Wizards’ advertising (no tea no shade), but we’ve been busy filming the Complete Guilds of Ravnica Set Review (available now on a YouTube near you) so I guess we missed the boat there. But in an effort to stay hip and relevant, how should Magic Mics get with the times?

The Finisher

Today the trailer for MTG Arena dropped and with it came Magic’s most iconic commercial since Bob from Accounting. It would have been enough for it to star notable internet celebrity and host of Spellslingers, Day9, but it also featured La Tortuga himself Danny Trejo. So now that we know the movie star and owner of Trejo’s Tacos is also a big Magic buff, what cards other than Mr. Trejo’s signature turn 3 Gigantosaurus are you thinking you’d like him to sign when he’s slinging spells at the next Magic Grand Prix?

The Finisher

Earlier this week, a Magic social media joke account called Magic The Hatering made a meme that went viral in Magic circles, showing that an Alpha Mox Sapphire is worth about ten times as much as a synthetic sapphire of equal weight. Now, the blueish crystalline form of aluminum oxide used in jewelry, watchmaking, and hippie-dippie healing ceremonies are fascinating and all, but this got me thinking: what other Magic comparisons get your gears turning?

The Finisher

This past weekend at PAX, the boys over at Penny Arcade announced that they will be launching a brand new program entitled The Magic Hour, in which illustrator Mike Krahulik and writer Jerry Holkins will play Magic: The Gathering in novel locations, potentially with interesting people. Magic and PAX have long been tied together, what with the fall set often being launched at PAX Prime, and this new show will connect the two even more. So in the future, how else can Magic: The Gathering and Penny Arcade further their partnership?

The Vorthos community has that new mother glow thanks to the news from the recent Magic story “Whispers of Treachery” that Nicol Bolas disguised himself as a pregnant woman while in human form, adding to the rumor that the Elder Dragon can reproduce through parthenogenesis (like Godzilla). Then the pregnant momma train kept rolling when the art from a Guilds of Ravnica booster box art shows Vraska the Gorgon planeswalker with a little Jacey baby bump showing through. Well we’re all on board the baby train, so which one of Magic’s characters do you want to see get knocked up next?

This is obviously a huge break for the star of Video Game High School and Game Knights, but it got me thinking: who will be the next fresh faced Magic celebrity to get cast in a Disney property?

The Finisher

 

Last night on the Late Show, host Stephen Colbert and action star Joe Mangianello of the movie version on Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL fame, not this here podcast version of Magic Mics (but hey Joe if you want on the show just get at me) waxed poetic all about their nerdy exploits on stuff like The Hobbit, the Ironlance novels, growing up dorky, and of course their mutual love of Dungeons & Dragons. We all know that being a big dork is cool now, what with comic books dominating the box office, werewolves and vampires and monsters all over TV, and scientists and physicists being the new rock stars. So now that it’s our time to shine, fellow dweebs, what’s the next bridge for Magic to cross in the completion of the Geek that shall inherit the Earth?

The Finisher

(inspired by Bilbo’s speech at his 111th birthday)

My dear Timmys and Tammys, Johnnys and Jennys, Spikes, Melvins, Vorthoses of all ages. Today is Magic’s 25th birthday! Alas, fifteen-teen years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable Magicians. I don’t know half of your cards half as well as I should like, and i like less than half of your decks half as well as you deserve… rounded down, of course. So my gathered friends, what do you love most about Magic from the first 25 years of the game’s existence?

The Finisher

As reported here first in November of 2016, The Magic Bracket is holding a single elimination tournament pitting every one of Magic’s first 16,000 (and change) cards against each other in a heads-up popularity bracket. And this week, it’s down to the nitty gritty. The creme de la creme. The cream of the crop, if you will, although the card Cream of the Crop was eliminated early on. Yes, this week starts the top 128. So of the remaining cards, which one are you hoping makes it all the way to the Sensei’s Divining Top slot?

This week’s installment of Spellslingers features the Streamy-award winning actress Ashley Clements as Sean Day9 Plott’s latest nerd-friend joining him for a game of Magic over on Geek & Sundry, and speaking of Day9 he joined his other nerd friends Jimmy Wong, Josh Lee Kwai, and award winning voice actress Ashly Burch on the latest Game Knights. The real-play Magic series featuring celebrities are amazing but they’re also relatively new, meaning there are plenty of Magic-playing A, B, C, and D-listers still out there to take part. So if you were the casting director in charge of casting casters, who would you like to see most on the next big show?

The Finisher
This week Mister Orange went and got himself a case of the the Touched by Death, after receiving Liliana Untouched by Death as the official Magic Mics preview, hashtag something corporate. As a result, we did not record out Top Tens episode this week. And since both Reuben and Erin are also still behind on their beauty rest and we had our live show a scant 4 days ago, this week’s live episode has a certain Sleepy element to it rather than the usual Dopey, Grumpy, and all the other relevant Dwarfs typically associated with the show. So put on a Happy face and tell me: once we’re better rested and some of us are recovered from The Plague, what thing are you looking forward to in next week’s high energy episode of Magic Mics?

The Finisher

The Great Designer Search 3 wrapped up this week, with the winner being announced tomorrow. And in keeping the competitors on their toes, according to Mark Rosewater the final #GDS3 Design Challenge was a Dark Ascension Meeting where we had to change Seance at the last minute. 3 finalists there, 3 hosts here. So, Great Designer Mics: what's your pitch to replace Magic's most memeable enchantment before it trolls out the door?

The Finisher

 

Reddit user evil_henchmen correctly predicted more than 12 months ago the timing of Dominaria and now our return to Ravnica, several months before the official announcements for either. His official prediction for planar visit after Ravnica? Vryn, Jace Beleren's home plane, because as they state "whatever happens on Ravnica will concern Jace, and it would be logical to investigate it further." So, now that it's all but assured that we'll be getting going back to the ol' Mage Rings with Jacie and Michelle’s High School Reunion, what's other worlds are you hoping to see Magic go to in the future?

This weekend the world watched the wedding of Prince Harry and Princess Meghan with pomp, circumstance, and British tax payer dollars live on television and across social media.

Colorless Commanders

We talked over the options, and decided on the following rules change: if you have a colorless commander, you can play any one type of basic land in your deck.

 

The other cards in your deck, including whatever nonbasic lands you want to play with, are all still subject to the original rule: "Cards in your deck can't include any colored mana symbols in mana costs or rules text that aren't found in the mana cost or rules text of the deck's commander."

 

STARTING LIFE TOTAL CHANGE (ONE-ON-ONE ONLY)

As the final balance change we're announcing today, the starting life total for one-on-one Brawl games will now be 20 life, lining up with one-on-one Standard play.

This week, Vorthoses rejoiced as we finally got to the Slimefoot origin story in Return to Dominaria’s tenth chapter from Martha Wells. With all of the attention paid to the famed Stowaway online and the social media marketing campaign #WheresSlimefoot, we’re excited to finally say: #TheresSlimefoot. So now that we have official canon on the Weatherlight’s most loveable Thallid, where would you like for the viral (or should I say “fungal”) marketing campaign have Slimefoot show up next?

It was confirmed this week that Gilfoyle, one of the main characters on the hit HBO comedy Silicon Valley, plays Magic: The Gathering when an Ixalan Fat Pack and MTG beer coozy appeared on his desk in the middle of a recent episode. Now it’s probably no stretch to say that five computer programmers living under one roof in the Bay Area might play Magic, but it is yet another feather in Magic’s cap of TV and film appearances. So what other pop culture crossovers are you looking forward to in the coming months?

Last weekend at Grand Prix Bologna, cosplayer Atlas Alters unleashed his Karn cosplay upon the world, and the Scion of Urza made his commentary debut alongside Rich Hagon during coverage of the event. Now, we’ve been graced with the presence of some truly “legendary” folks on Magic coverage before, but what “historic” figures would you like to see make a cameo on the mic in the future?

Next week the Magic Mics crew is convening to record the Complete Dominaria Set Review shows together in front of a live studio audience at Universal Studios, Florida. No, sadly that last part is not true, but we are all three going to be recording them together, in person. So since the day that the Kickstarter gods foretold all those weeks ago is finally upon us, what are you looking forward to most from the show?

The 80’s pop culture touchstone Roseanne, the sitcom best known as the venue for Mark Rosewater’s most popular comedic creations outside of UnStable, returned to television this week after 20 years off of tv screens. A lot has changed since the working class heroes The Connors graced the airwaves, and MaRo has grown in the two decades since as well. So if ABC hit up the Head Designer of Magic: The Gathering to write a new episode for the rebirth of Roseanne, what plot would you like to see?

Short episode this week, obviously, since it was a light news cycle with nothing particularly interesting happen- oh wait. When it comes to MTG news coming out, we sure are a lucky bunch. From top stories breaking mere hours before or literally minutes after Magic Mics, the gravitational pull of our cosmic interference cannot be ignored. And with business trips, vacations, and rehab visits undoubtedly on our horizon, what’s the next big news story that will break the internet the next time we take a week off?

This week, a number of Amazon Alexa users have heard their Echoes, Dots, Shows, and other Alexa-enabled devices produce strange, unprompted laugher. Hoping to calm emotions but instead doing exactly the opposite, Amazon responded to the creepiness in a statement, saying, “We’re aware of this and working to fix it.” Now, we broadcast on Twitch, also a subsidiary of the Amazon corporation, which means it’s only a matter of time before this here channel gains sentience and joins the robot resistance to overthrow humanity. So what do you think will be the first step towards Twitch.tv/MagicMics impending takeover?

“We have 600 people at Wizards. In the two or so years I’ve been here, we’ve probably hired 150 of them. A lot of them have been in our digital initiatives.”
“ Organized Play grew by about 5-7% in terms of total number of players and about 30% in terms of new players who participated.”
Coverage: “You will see high level competitive events that will be focused on digital versions of the game and you’ll see likely even more competitive events that is focused on the paper version of the game. Probably, maybe it’s a year or two down the road, a hybrid events where both are kind of showcased.”
“Davide [Bonati, Senior Director, Competitive Gaming & Esports] joined us from Wizards Europe and he runs our Organized Play team.”
“As long as MTGO fans play it, we’re committed to MTGO.”

Earlier this week, Meghan and Maria from Magic: The Amateuring launched their Patreon pledge month to help fund their new headquarters in the great white north of Minnesota. And you can be a founding member, getting your name of their Ravnica wall, with a donation to their efforts on their website. The new Amateuring HQ will join the ranks of Magic content production houses like LoadingReadyRun and Tolarian Community College, which got me thinking: If we were to, ya know, do that, what should we do for our big fundraiser?

Great Designer Search 3 Trial 1 is over! Trial 2 begins Saturday. https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/great-designer-search-3-2017-12-04

An evergreen mechanic is a keyword mechanic that shows up in (almost) every set. If you had to make an existing keyword mechanic evergreen, which one would you choose and why? If you had to remove evergreen status from a keyword mechanic that is currently evergreen, which one would you remove and why? What Magic mechanic most deserves a second chance (aka which had the worst first introduction compared to its potential)? Of all the Magic expansions that you've played with, pick your favorite and then explain the biggest problem with it. Of all the Magic expansions that you've played with, pick your least favorite and then explain the best part about it. You have the ability to change any one thing about Magic. What do you change and why?

Giveaway: Booster box of Rivals of Ixalan! - https://gleam.io/n4HJ2/win-a-booster-box-of-rivals-of-ixalan

 

First Pick - Standard Bannings: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/january-15-2018-banned-and-restricted-announcement-2018-01-15

 

Attune with Aether Rogue Refiner Ramunap Ruins Rampaging Ferocidon

 

A pack of Kaladesh can now contain up to three banned cards: Attune with Aether, Smuggler’s Copter, and Aetherworks Marvel.  The Kaladesh Nissa Planeswalker Deck is also no longer tournament legal.

 

There have been 9 cards banned in standard in just over 12 months.

For comparison, Urza standard, the most broken format of all time, only had 10. Affinity had 10 as well?

2 Types of currency: Gold and Gems

Gold - In-Game Earnable Currency

Gems - Need them sweet dollars

 

Gems-only content will be cosmetic only. No content that can’t be obtained from playing long enough.

 

Six ways to get cards: Boosters, ‘Keeper’ Drafts, Match Wins, Weekly Win Bonuses, Wildcards, and the Vault

 

Wildcards will appear in place of a common, unc, or rare/mythic; they can be any card of that rarity you want them to be. The longer it has been since you opened one, the higher chance you have of doing so.

 

The Vault will increase when you open a 5th copy of something or open a booster. It will reward Wildcards, items, and tokens.

 

Same distribution as real Magic packs.

 

No new Modern format when Standard rotates. (YEAH, RIGHT.) But they are expecting to create events which will use those cards.

The Finisher

This week, we have a true marquee matchup in the Magic Bracket. More than 12 million votes have been cast since we first talked about the Magic Bracket on Magic Mics about a year ago, a single elimination popularity contest between every single Magic card printed before 2016. And finally in Batch 38 of Round 4,096, we really have a top flight fight: the famed Otarian barbarian Kamahl is facing off with his favored enemy: Pits. That’s right, Kamahl, Pit Fighter finally gets a Pit to Fight in Creeping Tar Pit! It’s perfectly poetic, and it got me thinking: when we finally get to post-2016 cards, what other thematic matchups would you like to see played out in the gladiatorial arena of the Magic Bracket?

The Last Jedi came out last week, and obviously we’re still in the pre-agreed upon spoiler embargo period for the most recent installment in the Star Wars saga. And as you know, we here at Magic Mics are well known for our keeping of the sanctity of spoilers... Yep. But just in case you can’t protect yourselves from the intense internet chatter already surrounding Episode 8, we thought we might give y’all some fake spoilers that can be safely disseminated on Facebook threads. So what “spoiler” would you like to share with our viewing audience?

Tonight is the second night of Hanukkah, a Jewish holiday commemorating Judah and the Maccabees’ successful rebellion and rededication of the Holy Temple and the miracle of lights, when just a small amount of oil miraculously lasted for eight days in the Second Temple in Jerusalem. It’s a celebration that follows the classic Jewish holiday formula: They Attacked, We Won, Let’s Eat. And eat we do, with LOT-kuz and KOO-gull and SOOF-gahn-ee-OAT and plenty of other unpronounceable delicacies. But there’s still plenty of time yet to celebrate, so if you were to have a holiday commemorating your victory over impossible odds and miraculous circumstances, what foods might we expect to be served at your celebrations?

One of the most popular Reddit posts from this last week came from a user ironically named PathOfExilePlayer7. In it he asks a very simple question: “Dear Wizards: When will blocking be making a return? Love, a Longtime Player.” Several respondents offered explanations, including “Didn’t you see the announcement: they got rid of blocks” and “Blocking is about a 5 or a 6 on the Storm Scale, meaning it is likely to return at some point but they need to find a world / setting where it fits.” So in an effort to help out PathOfExilePlayer7, when do you think blocking will make its return?

And while it has been a year, it only feels like an eternity, and that means it’s only another 12 months until the midterm elections. So fellow co-hosts and potential candidates, what platform will you be running on in 2018?

So last week we missed a Magic Mics live show and two Magic Mics Top Tens because I was in Europe (which is where the history comes from) for Essen Spiel, and I just got back and boy are my arms tired. And by “arms” I mean “intestines” because I have been dying from food poisoning since I left Germany. Now, our followers are constantly on the road for Magic”: The Traveling as well, so what tips and tricks do you have for our television viewers for avoiding common journeying pitfalls?

New Team CFB - Captain Luis Scott-Vargas, fresh off of his year-long break from the Pro scene, and will consist of members from each of the two CFB teams from last season: Martin Juza and Josh Utter-Leyton, previously of Team CFB Ice, plus Mike Sigrist, Ben Stark, and Paulo Vitor Dama da Rosa, previously of Team CFB Fire.

Blast from the Past

1993 article about MTG: https://i.imgur.com/yhCs9Di.png

Some delightfully archaic stuff: “WotC shows greater savvy of the on-line information services than any other game company... It has its own node (wizards.com) on the Internet computer network, which features a fast-growing newsgroup devoted to the MAGIC game that currently draws over 100 messages a day.” “The MAGIC game requires a medium-to-large league of players to bring out its magic. Fortunately, its low entry price, simplicity, and quick play make this easier to achieve. It makes an ideal choice for conventions or lunch hours. Its drawbacks seem minor beside its groundbreaking achievement.”

Last week, it was announced that on December 15th after 20 years AOL will be discontinuing America Online Instant Messenger service, better known as AIM. This is a huge blow to many who used the long-running instant messenger service that was core to many people’s first social experiences on the internet. So as we set our away messages and tag our availability statuses for the last time, how will you remember AIM?

What if I told you that there is a Reddit thread on MagicTCG right now with over 200 comments of confused commenters asking why Ixalan has so many female pirate captains?

The Finisher

This week, our fellow content producers Josh Lee Kwai and Jimmy Wong released their latest Game Knights, this time straying away from their usual Commander videos to venture into a game of Two-Headed Giant against our other fellow content producers at Magic: The Amateuring, Maria Bartholdi and Meghan Wolff. And the internet reacted in a totally reasonable manner to the ever-so-slight change in format… by which I mean the internet happened to the tune of over 100 comments on Reddit. So in honor of that ridiculousness, how do you think we should piss off our Redditors this week?

Last week, I experienced my own version of adventure on the high seas when the high seas came to me thanks to Hurricane Irma. Thankfully, as you can see, my house and I are still in one relatively dry piece and we were able to come back home somewhat quickly. But as Irma moves along, we still have Jose, Katia, and more on the horizon, not to mention more in future years, so how should Magic Mics treat weather delays in the future?

One of the cards previewed this week was Deadeye Quartermaster, a 2/2 Human Pirate that acts as a tutor for vehicles or equipment. But it’s not the ability that set Twitter ablaze, no, it’s the art, which as you can see on the screen here… looks a lot like it might just have been Ms. Erin’s Invitational card. Now, we have heard tale that the model was in fact the artist Josh Haas’ wife, but it does beg the question: if you won the Invitational and were to be Shanghai’d into a set as a pirate, what might your swashbuckler say?

Steven Jay Williams, better known to his fans as Boogie 2988 on the Youtubes, took a break from his beloved character Francis for his long-planned gastric bypass surgery yesterday, which we have reports now saying that his operation was a success and he’s recovering in the hospital. So congratulations on that Boogie; we here at Magic Mics all wish you a speedy recovery. But with Francis unable to deliver his patented game-related rants for the time being, there’s a window here for some diatribes. So in honor of our fellow content creator, give us your best Boogie-rific tirade.

The results of the Magic Hall of Fame will be revealed soon, and Magic competitors, commentators, comedians and comandantes will be the deciding voices on who gets in and who does not. And speaking of deciding voices, the three of us are well known for our voices… but also for the voices of others. So who would Helene Bergeot, Mark Rosewater, and Rich Hagon argue in favor of for the class of 2017?

The Finisher

 

Last week, Bob of Bob’s Dugout led a masterclass in how best to burn every possible bridge on your way out the door from having WPN status. Now, in the past we’ve talked about stores losing WPN status from not having enough in-store space or not running enough events a week, but never before have we had the reason be the owner go off on a good ol’ fashioned racist tirade. To quote Mr. Dugout himself: “WOTC kicked me off because of something I said in my store if you can believe that! No freedom of speech here in JewMerica. I am still in shock, and anger, and disbelief but it’s true.” That escalated quickly. So, my JewMerican cohosts, if your store was to be denied WPN status, how would you make your less-than-graceful exit in your Facebook post?

The Finisher


This week is the 241st anniversary of the ratification and adoption of the Declaration of Independence, a document signed by 56 traitors to the British crown over the Stamp Act of 1765. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” No one had bothered to write those words down before, and today we celebrate that high treason with hot dogs and modified grenade launchers. Now, holidays are a key part of Magic too, with cards like Footbottom Feast, Havoc Festival, and of course Elvish House Party to name a few, but with few nation states in Magic-ology the concept of an “independence day” is kind of foreign. So what would that be like?

Erin asks: ‘Do you think it’s appropriate for #WotCStaff to stump for nominees?’

 

Sene1’s thoughts: https://www.facebook.com/notes/sveinung-bj%C3%B8rnerud/2017-hall-of-fame-early-thoughts/10158878989960437/

 

Quote from LSV on FB:

The average Hall of Fame voting thread:

- "You should vote for [person not remotely close to being eligible]"

- "I know [person] is a cheater, but their results are great"

- "This person's results are clearly the best" (about someone with fewer results across the board than other candidates)

- "Based on these objective criteria, you have to vote for this person" (criteria chosen in reverse to justify voting for someone specific)

At the end of all this, everyone just votes for exactly who they wanted to initially, based on whatever they feel is relevant, and nobody changes their mind. At least Josh Utter-Leyton will get to enjoy a month of everyone talking about how great he is, because not voting for him is pretty hard to justify, regardless of the metrics you choose.

https://www.reddit.com/r/magicTCG/comments/6j6503/theory_the_m10_rule_changes_never_happened/

 

This week over on the MTG subreddit, user ScottRadish stumbled upon one of the greatest cover-ups in Magic history: The M10 rule changes never happened! The theory goes that Rise of the Eldrazi came out in 2009, as did several big rule changes that coincided with the arrival of our flying spaghetti overlords. Magic did away with mana burn, but not because it was an archaic stupid rule… but because Ulamog ate all the excess mana! 1-cost burn spells and mana dorks stopped seeing print, but not because Lightning Bolt and Elvish Mystic were too good… it’s because Kozilek was countering them all! The exile zone was introduced, but not because it sounds way cooler than “removed from game…” but because the Eldrazi can process things from there! And now, with the deaths of Kozilek and Ulamog at the hands of the Gatewatch last year, Llanowar Elves and mana burn were due to come back… which is why the Standard rotation cycle was reverted back to the old 2 year version! **Wake up people!** The M10 rule changes never actually came into effect! That means damage has been on the stack for the last seven years! The term “battlefield” was introduced then as well… so where have we been putting our 187 creatures since 2009? Dogs and cats living together! Mass Hysteria! ((breathe)) Now, clearly this is the best Magic conspiracy theory since Conspiracy, but we gotta sell more National Inquirers next week, so what is another tinfoil tricorn hat hypothesis you came up with?

This past Monday, just after GP Vegas ended, the National Weather Service reported that Las Vegas, Nevada posted the highest ever recorded temperature of 117 degrees in Sin City. Since then, Phoenix, Palm Springs, and many others also reported record highs. Death Valley came within degrees of the hottest it has ever been anywhere  in the United States. Burbank airport in southern California grounded regional aircraft because the air was too hot and thin to provide the lift needed to take off. #Science. Basically it’s the perfect metagame Deserts and Hour of Devastation. So based on the spoiler season and the summer season heating up, what do you expect the next official Hour of Devastation preview to be?

Ladies and gentlemen, Magicians of all ages, next week is Grand Prix Las Vegas, and that means we are a short *nine days* from the first ever Magic Mics filmed in front of a live studio audience with all three of us sitting together in the same room, and of course later broadcast live-to-tape like Saturday Night Live does it. It is very exciting, but it’s also a lot of pressure, because you all expect the best from us. So in order to live up to the hype, what’s one thing we can do to make next week’s live show extra memorable?

Rather than banning cards, Wizards could release a statement along the lines of "B&R update: Pithing needle is now legal in standard". I think that this approach would be better received by the player community than banning cards.

Merriam-Webster’s English Dictionary has added a brand new word to their dictionary: sheeple, a (port-man-toe) portmanteau of “sheep” and “people.” Everybody loves a good portmanteau, so if you can, help the English language to continue to evolve and move forward with a portmanteau of your own.
