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 Finisher

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?
