The Finisher

Prada has a new campaign for a handbag featuring Magic cards…

https://i.redd.it/ek1ln0bj3q441.jpg

We haven’t been able to prove the truthiness of this ad’s veracity, but if it is legit the Italian luxury fashion house is using the world’;s premier trading card game to help sell their Prada Women’s Leather Bowling Bag, which by the way sells for $2,350 on their website. So this got me thinking. It’s the Christmas season, shopping time. Still a week before Santa comes down your chimney to deliver sealed boosters to all the good little girls and boys. What other luxury products can Magic cross over with to help sell their wares?

https://img-9gag-fun.9cache.com/photo/aL0L0V6_700bwp.webp
https://img-9gag-fun.9cache.com/photo/aMYdYNR_700bwp.webp
This just in: Pot of Greed allows its caster to draw two cards. And now, Bandai is selling a 1-to-1 scale Pot of Greed, made popular in the tv show and trading card game Yu-Gi-Oh and available on their shopping site sometime in April 2020. So I will start my joke by playing Pot of Greed, which allows me to draw two cards. But tell me: If you could have a lifesize version of any Magic card, other than Pot of Greed which allows me to draw two cards, what card would you pick?

The Finisher

 

**THANKS FOR SUBS + BITS GOES HERE FIRST**

 

#BabyYoda is so hot right now. With the launch of Disney+ and the release of the big Star Wars series “The Mandalorian,” few things have captured the hearts and minds of the internet quite as quickly or thoroughly as “The Asset.” And as we all know, nobody can capitalize and merchandize as well as Disney. But Magic has some amazing merchandising opportunities out there as well. So with Black Friday a week or so away and the holiday season right on our doorstep, what’s your pitch for the must-have can’t-miss Magic: The Gathering holiday toy of the season?

The Finisher

Begun, the streaming wars have. AppleTV launched earlier this month, Disney+ launched this week, and just a few hours later Netflix and Nickelodeon announced that they’d be jägering together to help fight against the new dogs on the block too. And Magic had their own entertainment debut this week too, albeit much worse than any of the streamer services, with the release of War for the Spark: Forsaken. Now, Magic: The Gathering is a big brand with gravitas and clout. So it’s a good feather in a streaming services’ cap. So tell me: what would you produce using MTG’s vast variety of fabulous characters and storylines to try to compete in the Stream Wars?

The Finisher

 

Breaking news here on Magic Mics, never before reported anywhere else: Oko is Broko. Banned in Brawl this week. Taking over Standard, Pioneer, Modern, Legacy, and now Vintage. We reached peak meme over the weekend, as a Black Lotus got turned into a 3/3 Elk to help attack for lethal in the vintage Championships. It seems that everything and everyone is all Elks all the time, and I’m not sure how many more bridges we have to cross before we achieve The Final FrontElk. So tell me: what else is left for Oko to conquer?

The Finisher

One of the most heartwarming stories of the week was about Reddit user “pudgimelon,” who simplified and cutified Magic: The Gathering for his 3-year-old daughter. Each deck has 20 cards: 12 “friends” (aka creatures) and 8 spells, all of which are sorcery speed. Toughness was done away with, each friend’s power is equal to its casting cost to simplify, and the turn order was further cut down to better allow preschoolers to understand. Now, we all have that player in our group who could use a 3-year-old’s version explained to them. So tell me: how would you help the preschooler in your playgroup grasp the complexities of Magic?

The Finisher

The word of the week is “crossover.” Magic: The Gathering and My Little Pony are combining forces to make legendary pony cards, because Friendship, as you know, is Magic. Wendy’s created a tabletop roleplaying game, of which the world’s most popular RPG show Critical Role played a #sponsored game, begging the question: “How Do You Want To Chew This?” And of course, the most ambitious crossover this week: Blizzard and Hong Kong. There were more crossovers this week than an Allen Iverson basketball camp, so as we further cross the streams, what is your personal brand’s next big crossover project?

The Finisher

Untitled Goose Game is taking Steam by storm. It was the #1 best selling game on the platform this week, beating out such major titles as Link’s Awakening and Minecraft. And it’s taking over Magic as well, with the new Gilded gander going great in games of Standard as well. So now that both Magic and strategic puzzle games have got their goose, how do you feel about our new avian overlords?

The Finisher

This past weekend was the PrePrerelease, featuring several of our favorite Magic personalities like Olivia Gobert-Hicks, Daniel Holt, Jaime Topples, and Vince Chandler aka PleasantKenobi. And while the show itself was a smash, what was even more of a smash… is the “smash” that occurred later when a fanfiction of PK and Tomer Abramovici of Budget Commander fame surfaced during the same weekend. And future MTG fanfics can’t be far behind. So as we fade to black on this episode, tell me the pitch for your future magical Magic fan fictions.

The Finisher

Link: https://kotaku.com/truck-carrying-gaming-dice-spills-onto-highway-rolls-a-1838218869 

On Friday, September 13, a truck bound for the Georgia-based tabletop and video game company Trivium Studios took a turn too sharply, spilling 216,000 gaming dice onto Interstate 75 in Atlanta in what could be the biggest unintentional dice roll ever. A representative commented, “Though unfortunate it happened, nobody got hurt and we now own an unofficial world record for the largest dice roll in history!” Considering the average roll of two six-sided dice is seven, and approximately 216,000 dice were rolled, Trivium estimates the roll totaled 756,000. The truck was undamaged, having made its saving throw. Now, this is big news, or maybe huge or gargantuan news based on how big this creature is, but tell me: the next time gaming “spills” into mainstream, how would you like to see it happen?

A lot happened today, a *lot*, but probably the biggest news overall is that the Magic: the Gathering Twitch is now a baking channel. Because for 30 minutes leading into today’s cavalcade of announcements, the Magic team were making gingerbread cookies in anticipation of today’s Throne of Eldraine announcements. So set your hot takes to 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and tell me: what’s the next dish you’d like to see served cold on Twitch.tv/magic?
