The Finisher

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?

This weekend is the double Grand Prix in Seattle, in the homestead of Magic: The Gathering. Joining the fray will be many Magic folks, and one such attendee will be our own MoxReuby, spellslinging tomorrow and Friday. So since he’s in Vancouver’s Tijuana for the week, what should he be sure to do while he’s in the Emerald City?

The Finisher

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?

The Finisher

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?

The Finisher

 

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?

One of the most delicious developments of Magic Twitter over the past couple weeks has been #MengucciCuisine, a discourse on delightful delectables made by none other than 3-time Pro Tour Top 8 competitor, captain of Team Italy when they won the World Magic Cup in 2015, and ChannelFireball content producer Andrea Mengucci. So given the success of The Gooch’s Magical menu Tweets, what would you bring to the table?

In breaking news first heard right here on Magic Mics, notable internet subculture celebrities Urban Wrestlers, Urban Camper Bellers, and Urban Turban are launching a Kickstarter to help produce a Dominaria set review. We hope you’re as excited as we are for this project, and we have lots of ideas on how to make this an attractive proposition for backers. And for this week’s Finisher we thought we’d share a few of them.

“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?

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?

Desperate Ravings

 

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.

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?
