As you may or may not be aware, the United States elected a new commander in chief last night. Polls show that the country has never been more divided, and that includes America’s 8 million or so Magic players. So when President Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the Unites States in January, what is the number one issue you’d like to see him address to reunite the red, white, and blue… and black and green?

The MTG Bracket: what will be voted the “top” Magic card of all time? https://twitter.com/MTG_Bracket/status/793384591407153152

 

The Finisher

 

Last night, Las Vegas nail salon owner (KWEE WIN) Qui Nguyen won the World Series of Poker. Tonight, the Cubs and Indians battled in game 7 of the World Series of baseball. Hundreds of millions of fans watched them live on television, but they pale in comparison to the World Magic Cup in 3 weeks. But let’s say, for the sake of argument, on the off chance that poker and baseball get more viewers than Magic: The Gathering, what broadcast hints could MTG pick up from their sports brethren?
