The Finisher

The Vorthos community has that new mother glow thanks to the news from the recent Magic story “Whispers of Treachery” that Nicol Bolas disguised himself as a pregnant woman while in human form, adding to the rumor that the Elder Dragon can reproduce through parthenogenesis (like Godzilla). Then the pregnant momma train kept rolling when the art from a Guilds of Ravnica booster box art shows Vraska the Gorgon planeswalker with a little Jacey baby bump showing through. Well we’re all on board the baby train, so which one of Magic’s characters do you want to see get knocked up next?

The Finisher

This week was so action packed with Twitter drama, social media shade, response articles, callouts, shoutouts, dropouts, mudslinging, tea drinking, policy updates and official announcements that we didn’t even touch on Monday’s Banned & Restricted announcement! And of course the reason is because… no changes. Thank the DCI gods that no new drama was added to stir the pot, but if you could have made one change to Wizards of the Coast’s Banned & Restricted list, what would you change and why?

The Finisher

Host of Command Cast and real life YouTube-turned-Hollywood star Jimmy Wong announced on his Twitter that he has been non-command cast in the role of Ling in the upcoming live action remake of Disney’s Mulan. This is obviously a huge break for the star of Video Game High School and Game Knights, but it got me thinking: who will be the next fresh faced Magic celebrity to get cast in a Disney property?

The Finisher

 

Last night on the Late Show, host Stephen Colbert and action star Joe Mangianello of the movie version on Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL fame, not this here podcast version of Magic Mics (but hey Joe if you want on the show just get at me) waxed poetic all about their nerdy exploits on stuff like The Hobbit, the Ironlance novels, growing up dorky, and of course their mutual love of Dungeons & Dragons. We all know that being a big dork is cool now, what with comic books dominating the box office, werewolves and vampires and monsters all over TV, and scientists and physicists being the new rock stars. So now that it’s our time to shine, fellow dweebs, what’s the next bridge for Magic to cross in the completion of the Geek that shall inherit the Earth?
