The Finisher:

Magic The Gathering Online Digital Objects announced today that the “No Possible Play: Yield All” function, commonly mapped to the F8 keyboard shortcut, no longer works as intended… which is code for it’s broke. It’s a sad day for fans of F8, whose “fates” are sealed (do you see what I did there) but there are lots of potential ideas for future functions on MTGO. So what would you like to see added as a future function to MODO?

The Finisher:

As we were just talking about, ESPN launched ESPN eSports this week, and with it there were segments on SportsCenter and other shows focusing on the 2016 League of Legends Championships. And I know we’ve all seen that sweet mid 90’s ESPN2 footage of the Pro Tour, so if and when ESPN and MTG get back together to form, ESPN The Gathering what will be one of the shows they produce?

The Finisher:

Last night, President Obama gave his seventh and final State of the Union Address. And as it says in the Constitution, “the hosts of Magic Mics shall, from time to time, give to their viewers information on the state of Magic.” So what is the most pressing thing you have to share with Magic nation?

On his twitter page, Luis-Scott Vargas announced that he and his wife Geneva Sarcedo are expecting! Congrats to LSV and Geneva, but this does beg the question: as the master of puns and all things wordplay, what should the newest Scott-Vargas be named?
