The Finisher

 

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?

The Finisher

Today the trailer for MTG Arena dropped and with it came Magic’s most iconic commercial since Bob from Accounting. It would have been enough for it to star notable internet celebrity and host of Spellslingers, Day9, but it also featured La Tortuga himself Danny Trejo. So now that we know the movie star and owner of Trejo’s Tacos is also a big Magic buff, what cards other than Mr. Trejo’s signature turn 3 Gigantosaurus are you thinking you’d like him to sign when he’s slinging spells at the next Magic Grand Prix?

The Finisher

Earlier this week, a Magic social media joke account called Magic The Hatering made a meme that went viral in Magic circles, showing that an Alpha Mox Sapphire is worth about ten times as much as a synthetic sapphire of equal weight. Now, the blueish crystalline form of aluminum oxide used in jewelry, watchmaking, and hippie-dippie healing ceremonies are fascinating and all, but this got me thinking: what other Magic comparisons get your gears turning?

The Finisher

This past weekend at PAX, the boys over at Penny Arcade announced that they will be launching a brand new program entitled The Magic Hour, in which illustrator Mike Krahulik and writer Jerry Holkins will play Magic: The Gathering in novel locations, potentially with interesting people. Magic and PAX have long been tied together, what with the fall set often being launched at PAX Prime, and this new show will connect the two even more. So in the future, how else can Magic: The Gathering and Penny Arcade further their partnership?
