The Finisher

What if I told you that there is a Reddit thread on MagicTCG right now with over 200 comments of confused commenters asking why Ixalan has so many female pirate captains? Well, that seems like an innocent and not at all controversial topic to bring up with y’all, so why, pray tell, do you think there are so many fragile little lady pirate leaders and so few big strong men at the helm in Ixalan?

The Finisher

This week, our fellow content producers Josh Lee Kwai and Jimmy Wong released their latest Game Knights, this time straying away from their usual Commander videos to venture into a game of Two-Headed Giant against our other fellow content producers at Magic: The Amateuring, Maria Bartholdi and Meghan Wolff. And the internet reacted in a totally reasonable manner to the ever-so-slight change in format… by which I mean the internet happened to the tune of over 100 comments on Reddit. So in honor of that ridiculousness, how do you think we should piss off our Redditors this week?

The Finisher

 

Last week, I experienced my own version of adventure on the high seas when the high seas came to me thanks to Hurricane Irma. Thankfully, as you can see, my house and I are still in one relatively dry piece and we were able to come back home somewhat quickly. But as Irma moves along, we still have Jose, Katia, and more on the horizon, not to mention more in future years, so how should Magic Mics treat weather delays in the future?

The Finisher

 

One of the cards previewed this week was Deadeye Quartermaster, a 2/2 Human Pirate that acts as a tutor for vehicles or equipment. But it’s not the ability that set Twitter ablaze, no, it’s the art, which as you can see on the screen here… looks a lot like it might just have been Ms. Erin’s Invitational card. Now, we have heard tale that the model was in fact the artist Josh Haas’ wife, but it does beg the question: if you won the Invitational and were to be Shanghai’d into a set as a pirate, what might your swashbuckler say?
