The Finisher

The 80’s pop culture touchstone Roseanne, the sitcom best known as the venue for Mark Rosewater’s most popular comedic creations outside of UnStable, returned to television this week after 20 years off of tv screens. A lot has changed since the working class heroes The Connors graced the airwaves, and MaRo has grown in the two decades since as well. So if ABC hit up the Head Designer of Magic: The Gathering to write a new episode for the rebirth of Roseanne, what plot would you like to see?

The Finisher

Short episode this week, obviously, since it was a light news cycle with nothing particularly interesting happen- oh wait. When it comes to MTG news coming out, we sure are a lucky bunch. From top stories breaking mere hours before or literally minutes after Magic Mics, the gravitational pull of our cosmic interference cannot be ignored. And with business trips, vacations, and rehab visits undoubtedly on our horizon, what’s the next big news story that will break the internet the next time we take a week off?

The Finisher

 

This week, a number of Amazon Alexa users have heard their Echoes, Dots, Shows, and other Alexa-enabled devices produce strange, unprompted laugher. Hoping to calm emotions but instead doing exactly the opposite, Amazon responded to the creepiness in a statement, saying, “We’re aware of this and working to fix it.” Now, we broadcast on Twitch, also a subsidiary of the Amazon corporation, which means it’s only a matter of time before this here channel gains sentience and joins the robot resistance to overthrow humanity. So what do you think will be the first step towards Twitch.tv/MagicMics impending takeover?

The Finisher

One of the most delicious developments of Magic Twitter over the past couple weeks has been #MengucciCuisine, a discourse on delightful delectables made by none other than 3-time Pro Tour Top 8 competitor, captain of Team Italy when they won the World Magic Cup in 2015, and ChannelFireball content producer Andrea Mengucci. So given the success of The Gooch’s Magical menu Tweets, what would you bring to the table?
