The Finisher

(inspired by Bilbo’s speech at his 111th birthday)

My dear Timmys and Tammys, Johnnys and Jennys, Spikes, Melvins, Vorthoses of all ages. Today is Magic’s 25th birthday! Alas, fifteen-teen years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable Magicians. I don’t know half of your cards half as well as I should like, and i like less than half of your decks half as well as you deserve… rounded down, of course. So my gathered friends, what do you love most about Magic from the first 25 years of the game’s existence?

The Finisher

As reported here first in November of 2016, The Magic Bracket is holding a single elimination tournament pitting every one of Magic’s first 16,000 (and change) cards against each other in a heads-up popularity bracket. And this week, it’s down to the nitty gritty. The creme de la creme. The cream of the crop, if you will, although the card Cream of the Crop was eliminated early on. Yes, this week starts the top 128. So of the remaining cards, which one are you hoping makes it all the way to the Sensei’s Divining Top slot?

The Finisher

A popular Reddit thread this week asked Magic players to finish the thought: “never trust a Magic player who ____.” So Magic Mics, being the untrusting sorts, how would you fill in the blank?
