The Finisher

 

This week’s installment of Spellslingers features the Streamy-award winning actress Ashley Clements as Sean Day9 Plott’s latest nerd-friend joining him for a game of Magic over on Geek & Sundry, and speaking of Day9 he joined his other nerd friends Jimmy Wong, Josh Lee Kwai, and award winning voice actress Ashly Burch on the latest Game Knights. The real-play Magic series featuring celebrities are amazing but they’re also relatively new, meaning there are plenty of Magic-playing A, B, C, and D-listers still out there to take part. So if you were the casting director in charge of casting casters, who would you like to see most on the next big show?

The Finisher
This week Mister Orange went and got himself a case of the the Touched by Death, after receiving Liliana Untouched by Death as the official Magic Mics preview, hashtag something corporate. As a result, we did not record out Top Tens episode this week. And since both Reuben and Erin are also still behind on their beauty rest and we had our live show a scant 4 days ago, this week’s live episode has a certain Sleepy element to it rather than the usual Dopey, Grumpy, and all the other relevant Dwarfs typically associated with the show. So put on a Happy face and tell me: once we’re better rested and some of us are recovered from The Plague, what thing are you looking forward to in next week’s high energy episode of Magic Mics?

The Finisher

The Great Designer Search 3 wrapped up this week, with the winner being announced tomorrow. And in keeping the competitors on their toes, according to Mark Rosewater the final #GDS3 Design Challenge was a Dark Ascension Meeting where we had to change Seance at the last minute. 3 finalists there, 3 hosts here. So, Great Designer Mics: what's your pitch to replace Magic's most memeable enchantment before it trolls out the door?
