The Finisher

For months, I’ve been asking the question: What is the MPL? Well, this week we finally got an answer. But sometimes when you reach the end of a quest, it leaves a hole in your heart. A knight who finally slays the dragon they’ve been searching for their whole life suddenly needs new purpose. So help me, friends: now that there is a clear path to the Magic Pro League and my grail quest has come to an end, help me find purpose again by telling me: what should my next quest be?

The Finisher

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/argentsagatcg/argent-saga-trading-card-game 

Argent Saga from games-maker ARG is a new game with a very popular Kickstarter and an ever-increasing following thanks to Gen Con that’s just come out. Problem is, they’re one set in and we’re already hearing they have a metagame problem. Stop me if you’ve heard this one: they have issues with a lack of graveyard interaction, an overpowered creature in a graveyard-based deck is a main culprit, and a box-topper as one of the most powerful cards in the game. Now, we Magic folks are fortunate that we can survive a Saviors of Kamigawa or three, but it’s tougher for the new kids on the block. So tell me: what advice would you give an Argent Saga fan hoping their game can keep on truckin’ past their second set?

The Finisher

You might not know it from the coverage of it on our Magic: The Gathering news show, but Magic: The Gathering is holding a competitive championship event this weekend. The artist previously known as the Pro Tour, Mythic Championship 4: Mythic Championship With A Vengeance is coming to you live from Barcelona, Spain this weekend in the ever-popular Modern format. Now, here’s a fascinating little detail: did you know that Magic still makes physical Magic cards? And the event this weekend will be using them. Weird, right? So tell me, as time soldiers on and all the snow-covered lands that were just printed in Modern Horizons start to melt back into regular basics, what are you hoping for this weekend at MC4?

The Finisher

 

This week’s Banned and Restricted update saw great upheaval in multiple formats, what with Bridge from Below, Paradox Engine, and Iona hitting the bench and Painter’s Servant coming back in from the cold. Now, not everyone is happy with these changes (particularly Faithless Looting once agains avoiding the hammer) and furthermore people aren’t super excited with the myriad of other unbannable options left wanting. So in the future, after more cards hit the graveyard (and make a bunch of 2/2 black Zombie tokens as a result) what are you hoping to see a return from in the format of your choosing?

The Finisher

This week we’re gonna talk about toothbrushes. Certain HASBRO toy shop customers who tried to buy War of the Spark Mythic Editions earlier this year were unable to, then told they’d be sent War of the Spark foil uncut sheets only to be sent, you guessed it, toothbrushes. Specifically, Quip brand, which advertises themselves as “simple, affordable, and surprisingly enjoyable oral care for everyone.” So once Erin stops laughing at the words “enjoyable oral” in a sentence, tell me: what would a toothbrush have to do in order for you to be happy with it coming instead of your foil uncut sheet?

The Finisher

In a story that is in the running for the most 2019 story of 2019, Bernie Sanders is now Twitch verified. Now, tomorrow night is when we’ll feel the Bern on stage, but tonight the junior senator from Vermont is free to try out the new WoW patch with his main, pwn noobs on Fortnite, or even try to his Diamond on his Arena account before the end of the season. But he certainly won’t be the last bonafide celebrity to get on board with live streaming. So tell me: what other big names would you like to see try out Twitch streaming and get their game on?

The Finisher

8 years ago this week, Jace the Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic were banned from the Standard format. Times sure have changed since then, with Stoneforge being bandied about for Modern unbanning every few months and JTMS these days merely being better than most. So in a few years when we look back at the bans that make her dance, what kinds of memories will you have?

The Finisher

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, commonly referred to as E3, is the premier trade event for the video game industry and is occurring this week in LA. Among those in attendance were the platonic ideal of wholesomeness Keanu Reeves announcing a brand new Cyberpunk game, Jon Bernthal brought his adorable pupper, and the whole world fell in love with Ghostwire Tokyo game designer and world’s most adorable human Ikumi Nakamura. So with Magic moving ever closer to the esports side, what announcement are you holding out hope for at E3 2019?

Yu-Gi-Oh! Adds Definition of, and Penalty for, Card Sharks:

https://twitter.com/MaxPlaysMTG/status/1136000969966116870?s=19

 

The Finisher

Our trading card game cousins-once-removed, Yu-Gi-Oh, recently added a rules update that codifies what a “rules shark” is and that attempting to “shark the rules” is punishable under Unsporting Behavior. Quote: “Official Policy documents may not serve as a resource for persons to attempt to take advantage of one another through rule sharking, or otherwise attempting to influence the decisions of judges or tournament officials. Rule sharking is defined as using rules and policy in an attempt to gain an advantage instead of to ensure fair and consistent gameplay.” This is on the heels of their recent other rules update hygiene policy was put in place. This is, of course, amazing work from the Rules Committee for Yu-Gi-Oh, and it got me thinking: what rules updates are you hoping for in the future?

The Finisher

The 1980s cartoon Dungeons & Dragons may be gone, but it is a pop-culture icon in Brazil, where the series remains incredibly popular. So much so that the French car manufacturer Renault (pronounced “WREN-OH”) made a Hollywood-production-level live-action commercial that brought the cartoon characters to life. The nearly two-minute-long commercial is complete with explosions, a magical bow shooting glowing arrows of energy, and, of course, dragons. And it wouldn’t be complete without the copyright, officially given permission by Wizards of the Coast… which opens the door to a future Magic crossover. So what product do you think Wizards should allow to license the MTG brand next?

Last Friday, ChannelFireball let the people know that some of their sales had been erroneously flagged by Amazon. Quote: “We previously contacted you regarding a new online training requirement to continue to offer pesticide products. You are offering, or have previously offered, products that are affected, including for example: Giant Spider, Netcaster Spider, Pallid Mycoderm, Root Greevil, Root-Kin Ally, Spitting Slug, and Spreading Algae.” ...Right... Well, clearly there’s been something lost in translation here, but this does allow for some, shall we say, creep. So what warnings would you like added to your future Amazon orders?

The Finisher

Space: The Final Frontier. NASA tweeted today that we’re going back to the moon, and this time it’s personal. Big news: permanent moonbases, coming by 2024. As JFK said, “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” But keep in mind: it’s going to be boring. No dance clubs, no bowling alleys, no water parks, just hiking and stargazing and rock collecting as far as the eye can see. The best way to fill those hours as far as I can see is Magic. So let’s say that the Magic Mics were selected to be the Moon Mics. What Magic things are you packing in your airtight foot locker when you boldly go where no Magic player has gone before?
