The Finisher

The word of the week is “crossover.” Magic: The Gathering and My Little Pony are combining forces to make legendary pony cards, because Friendship, as you know, is Magic. Wendy’s created a tabletop roleplaying game, of which the world’s most popular RPG show Critical Role played a #sponsored game, begging the question: “How Do You Want To Chew This?” And of course, the most ambitious crossover this week: Blizzard and Hong Kong. There were more crossovers this week than an Allen Iverson basketball camp, so as we further cross the streams, what is your personal brand’s next big crossover project?

The Finisher

Untitled Goose Game is taking Steam by storm. It was the #1 best selling game on the platform this week, beating out such major titles as Link’s Awakening and Minecraft. And it’s taking over Magic as well, with the new Gilded gander going great in games of Standard as well. So now that both Magic and strategic puzzle games have got their goose, how do you feel about our new avian overlords?

The Finisher

This past weekend was the PrePrerelease, featuring several of our favorite Magic personalities like Olivia Gobert-Hicks, Daniel Holt, Jaime Topples, and Vince Chandler aka PleasantKenobi. And while the show itself was a smash, what was even more of a smash… is the “smash” that occurred later when a fanfiction of PK and Tomer Abramovici of Budget Commander fame surfaced during the same weekend. And future MTG fanfics can’t be far behind. So as we fade to black on this episode, tell me the pitch for your future magical Magic fan fictions.

The Finisher

Link: https://kotaku.com/truck-carrying-gaming-dice-spills-onto-highway-rolls-a-1838218869 

On Friday, September 13, a truck bound for the Georgia-based tabletop and video game company Trivium Studios took a turn too sharply, spilling 216,000 gaming dice onto Interstate 75 in Atlanta in what could be the biggest unintentional dice roll ever. A representative commented, “Though unfortunate it happened, nobody got hurt and we now own an unofficial world record for the largest dice roll in history!” Considering the average roll of two six-sided dice is seven, and approximately 216,000 dice were rolled, Trivium estimates the roll totaled 756,000. The truck was undamaged, having made its saving throw. Now, this is big news, or maybe huge or gargantuan news based on how big this creature is, but tell me: the next time gaming “spills” into mainstream, how would you like to see it happen?

The Finisher

A lot happened today, a *lot*, but probably the biggest news overall is that the Magic: the Gathering Twitch is now a baking channel. Because for 30 minutes leading into today’s cavalcade of announcements, the Magic team were making gingerbread cookies in anticipation of today’s Throne of Eldraine announcements. So set your hot takes to 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and tell me: what’s the next dish you’d like to see served cold on Twitch.tv/magic?

The Finisher

Amongst the weirdest news stories this week was that HASBRO, the parent company of Magic, now has a new subsidiary: Death Row Records. The old school rap label founded by Suge Knight, The D.O.C., and Dr. Dre today is owned and operated Entertainment One, which recently inked a deal with HASBRO for 4 billion (with a b) dollars. Now, getting eOne also means that HASBRO can start making things associated with more toy-aligned properties like Peppa Pig and PJ Masks, but those are less interesting to me. So tell me: How do you hope Wizards of the Coast and West Coast collaborate in the future?

Somebody call Frank Karsten! Four-Color Kethis broke Standard at the most recent Mythic Championship Qualifier Weekend. Only a few people played the new combo deck, with both Ondrej Strasky and Stanislav Cifka managing 5-1s on Day 2 to qualify for MC5. With those impressive results, it seems the Czech is in the mail! Eh, get it? They’re bringin’ Kethis back. Well regardless, overly complicated graveyard-based iterative combo decks and StanCifka go together like Erin and the “block” button. But it kind of came out of nowhere, so tell me: what’s the next big surprise deck to take the metagame by storm?

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?
