The Finisher
For the first time in nearly 2 years, a new episode of one of the most popular Magic podcasts of all time, Yo MTG Taps, was posted by the hosts (and our friends) Big Head Joe and Joey Pasco, discussing Arena’s new prominence and Magic’s competitive scene. Now, we already live in a culture that is mono-remakes, adaptations, and reboots of classic shows from ages past, but this got me thinking: if we can resurrect Yo MTG Taps, what other series from Magic past can we bring back now that Arena and the Mythic championship have entered the battlefield?

The Finisher

HASBRO announced plans today for its first indoor water park and family resort, themed around some of its biggest toy and game franchises. According to sources, the Hasbro resort is set to open in a currently unannounced location by 2022. Now, surely rides and installations inspired by Monopoly, Hungry Hungry Hippos, My Little Pony, Mr. Potato Head, Candy Land and Nerf are going to be fun and all, but the headliner for us obviously is Magic: The Gathering. So tell me: what is your mythic idea for HASBROLand’s MTG experience?

Magic Arena Rank 1.0

https://www.reddit.com/r/MagicArena/comments/a34dg0/mtg_arena_developer_update_rank_10/

TL;DW: New ranking system incoming, but it is still the early stage of what they want, featuring season rewards and "balanced" advancement. This system applies to limited and constructed events. New matchmaking system that changes how players are matched in ladder and non-ladder play (which is also new.) Non-Ladder matchmaking will still be based partially on "deck strength" with some fine tuning coming soon.

 

Edit: Patch will hit on December 13th with State of the Beta on Dec 12.

It was announced this week that, beginning on December 17, the microblogging and social media website Tumblr will be banning all pornography on their website. And if you don’t know what Tumblr is, well, apparently you have until December 17 to find out. Several popular Magic blogs are hosted on Tumblr, including the Magic Bracket, tons of artists and cosplayers, and of course Mark Rosewater’s Blogatog. So now that Tumblr will be working out the kinks, so to speak, what changes do you expect to come to Magic: The Tumblring?

The Finisher

The folks at LoadingReadyRun are headed into Hour 131 of the Desert Bus for Hope 2018 over at twitch.tv/desertbus. Over the past nine years, the gang has (as of about 45 minutes ago) raised 5 million dollars for Child’s Play, a charity that donates toys, games and funds to children’s hospitals all over the world. The more money raised the longer the team has to keep playing Desert Bus, a minigame from Penn & Teller’s mercifully unreleased Sega CD Smoke and Mirrors. And while the cult classic game is widely considered to be the worst game ever made, I think maybe we can do better… or worse. So if you were hired to make the next best worst game ever, what would you make?

The Finisher

Game Director of Magic Arena Chris Clay announced *today* that Direct Challenges are coming to Arena November 15. That means that you’ll be able to challenge people directly, which means actual factual friends lists are soon to follow. Now I’m a fan of social mediums as much as the next guy, but I need another list of suggested friends like I need another LinkedIn request. But it’s coming, so in addition to having people like, tweet, favorite, share, and subscribe, now we’ll add Arena friends to the list, but how else can Magic add more to the gathering?

The Finisher

Tonight is All Hallow’s Eve, The Devil’s Day, Dia de los Muertos, Samhain, Hallow Tide… better known as Halloween. A time to celebrate fun-sized candy, pumpkin spice everything, and especially costumes. I’ve always liked costume parties and cosplay and masks, because everyone becomes themselves when they are dressed up safe as someone else. So on this, the only day of the year where it’s socially acceptable to show up at your day job as a clown unless your day job is as an actual clown, what Magic celebrity would you dress up as on the most wonderful night of fright of the year?

The Finisher

This morning, the internet received the solicitations for IDW’s comics coming out in January of 2019, including “Magic: The Gathering: Chandra #3”. And the cover art attracted attention for all the wrong reasons, not only because LOL Tibalt and his triple breasted jacket but also because of the yikesworthy cover art. Chandra at Tibalt’s feet feels like a pretty unrealistic scenario, but it is comic books! Thor was a frog once, and that is almost as bizarre. So since we’re in the land of make-believe where up is down, left is right, and Tibalt is all-powerful, what other storylines can you dream up for future Magic comics titles?

Jason Chan, better known on the Twitches and Twitters as “Amaz,” earned his first career Magic: The Gathering top 8 at Grand Prix Mexico City last week. The ludicrously popular Hearthstone streamer showed why he’s one of the world’s finest minds in competitive card games, and that his Pro Tour and Silver Showcase invites were no fluke. So with Amaz joining the ranks of Stan Cifka, Brian Kibler of Brian Kibler Gaming, and Kenny from South Park with a big Magic finish, who’s the next livestreaming celebrity you expect to make it to the knockout rounds?

The MTG Arena Rare Squeeze

https://www.reddit.com/r/MagicArena/comments/9keb18/rare_wildcard_bottleneck/

 

“Right now, looking at aetherhub.com's list of most used cards in MTGA, the top ten has one common and one uncommon, the rest are rare or mythic rare. The same statistic on hsreplay.net shows three common, three rare, two epic and two legendary cards. In other words, 80% of MTGA's best cards are expensive while in HS the distribution of cheap vs. expensive cards in the top #10 is almost exactly equal, leaning toward cheap.

 

It's kinda like if the government made a new law declaring that roof shingles can no longer be purchased in bulk but must instead be obtained in packages containing one roof shingle, a window pane, a tractor tire and a pair of jeans. These packages cost the same as the combined value of those items. Well, the price of a roof just skyrocketed. Especially if you didn't need new windows and don't own a tractor.”

The Finisher

 

Last week’s 24 hour Arena event was a big success, thanks in large part to Reddit user Fugiman and their Deckmaster plugin, which allowed for streamers of Magic Arena to utilize different hoverable zones that displayed the cards for viewers to read instead of waiting for the streamer to hover over the card. Now, having easy access to the hand, board state, graveyard, and exile zones is great and all, but I think the man known as Fugi has a gold mine here. So what other things would you like to be clearer in the future using the Deckmaster app?

“Because my heart was weak, I became DQ. Because I declared it on the next turn, I declare it not on the turn I pull the sideboard card in the main game.

Similar situation with Seth Manfield at a Modern GP, didn’t realize until Turn 4; fix was to put in sideboard; Context: 3 Gideons in the U/W Control list.

For those of you looking at the Twitch directory and wondering why we’re the only ones not playing Arena right now, that’s because Wizards of the Coast is presenting the Guilds of Ravnica 24-Hour Early Access Streamer Event, and hundreds of streamers are taking part. Players from previous Preprerelease guests like ProJared and Noxious to esports folks like Kripp and Trump, Twitch is all MTGArena all the time today. Clearly this is the biggest Magic event of the past 7 days, at least according to Wizards’ advertising (no tea no shade), but we’ve been busy filming the Complete Guilds of Ravnica Set Review (available now on a YouTube near you) so I guess we missed the boat there. But in an effort to stay hip and relevant, how should Magic Mics get with the times?
