The Finisher:
For the longest time, Facebook users have been asking for a ‘dislike’ option. Well today, Facebook introduced five new emoticons. Users can now respond to post with ‘like,’ ‘haha,’ ‘wow,’ ‘sad,’ and ‘angry’ instead of simply ‘liking’ a post. So now that we know Facebook has the ability to add more emotions to our responses, what feelings would you like to see Facebook let us convey in our responses?

The actual solution to the Eternal Masters lacking a GP - WotC should create the yearly Magic Convention -- at the center will be the GP for the latest Eternal/Modern Masters set

The Finisher:

Earlier today, The Princess of Pop Britney Jean Spears shared with her 8.2 million Instagram followers an inspirational piece of art with the caption “Rooted In Life”… Tree Emoji. That piece of art? Why, it was none other than Noah Bradley’s iconic Temple of Mystery. So now that Magic art has broached pop culture, which celebrity will be the next to use MTG art to inspire the masses?

The Finisher:

This weekend, gold level pro Chris Fennell did a deck tech this past weekend at Pro Tour Oath of the Gatewatch in which his deck was perhaps erroneously titled “Thugs and Bugs,” which led to a long empassioned discussion about potentially offensive deck names and naming conventions. So, with the Pro Tour behind us but more new deck names always on the horizon, what do you want a future deck to be named?

The Finisher:

 

Speaking of rodentia, yesterday the United States observed one of its strangest holidays, Groundhog Day, in which we depend on a small furry mammal to tell us what the weather will be like for the next month and a half. Yeah, that’s a thing we do. So in honor of our most rodent-themed holiday, how else would you propose we predict the future in Magic?
