Today NASA held a press conference announcing that seven, count ‘em, seven Earth-sized planet have been discovered in a solar system only about 40 lightyears from ours. The discovery of the TRAPPIST-1 system sets a new record for the greatest number of habitable-zone planets found around a single star outside our solar system. All of these seven planets could have liquid water, and three fall within the Goldilocks zone that can support human life. This is obviously a huge day for those interested in space exploration and that meme guy from the History channel, but tell me: what will Magic be like once we enter the Interstellar era?

Magic Online & Outside Assistance
On Tuesday morning, a Carson City man was arrested for suspicion of domestic battery after fighting with his brother in a dispute over rules to a game of Magic they were playing. The deputies met with the victim outside the apartment, and he said that he and his brother were playing the trading card game "Magic" and got into a fight regarding the game's rules. The victim's brother said that his 31-year-old brother punched him in the back of his head while they were arguing, which triggered the fight. The deputy did not see any physical injuries on the victim, who stated that while he was waiting for the deputies to arrive, he grabbed a sword for his protection. Now look, I know that we’re rules lawyers. But being a rules samurai is a whole ‘nother level. So if your opponent challenged your honor via rules violation, how would you respond?
