The Finisher

On the last surviving Tumblr page, Mark Rosewater’s Blogatog, the Head Designer for Magic: The Gathering said, “The Global Series started because we were making an entry-level product for China and wanted the content available for others. It wasn’t intended necessarily as an ongoing thing.” Basically, he has a slightly different definition of “series” than the rest of us. But I think there’s more possibilities out there for future Global Series, so with that in mind where would you hope the Global Series heads to next?

The Finisher

Sad new to report from the Magic content creation community now: CNN broke the news today that Brian “The Professor” Lewis from Tolarian Community College died in a tragic accident. According to the article, “The YouTube star passed away early this morning after being rushed to the hospital.” Now here’s the sad part: that was just totally not true. At all. The Professor himself tweeted out as soon as he found out about the article that he is totally fine. So that got me thinking: what incredibly salacious and totally untrue headline would get social media buzzing about y’all?

Planeswalkers in WAR that aren’t on cards

The Finisher

Tonight is the launch of the Magic Mics War of the Spark Complete Set Review Kickstarter, our third ever complete set review. Wizard announced that there will be more than 30 unique individual planeswalkers appearing in the set, making that the most ‘walkers I’ve seen in one place since my last visit to the nursing home. Ravnica’s about to be the hot spot. But here’s what I want to know: with all these big multiverse celebrities descending on the City of Guilds, where can a fan get the best glimpse of an planeswalking A-Lister?

The Finisher

Breaking news: the world’s top Bridge player has been banned for doping. Geir Helgemo was banned for a year by the Monaco Bridge Federation. Now, even though the med he tested positive for isn’t performance enhancing in Bridge, the Bridge Federation is recognised by the International Olympic Committee, and as a result they abide by their rules. But it is interesting to consider the implications of drug testing in Magic. So if the IOC brings digital athletes like Magic: Arena pros on board, how deep do you foresee that rabbit hole going?

The Finisher

This week, the hit SYFY show The Magicians referenced Magic! Well, it is about magic and magicians after all, but no! This time it referenced Magic: The Gathering, specifically a villain trading information for a Black Lotus. Now, Magic and The Magicians go together perfectly, and with hit shows like Stranger Things referencing D&D, HASBRO properties are hotter than ever. So where else would you expect to see products from the largest toy maker in the world pop up in pop culture?
