The Finisher

 

ChannelFireball.com announced a unique promotion this week, tweeting on Monday that for every pro-point Luis Scott-Vargas earns at the Mythic Championship in London this weekend, orders made before Thursday will be that much percent off in the CFB store. Now, this is a hell of an angle. And as a sales and marketing professional myself, I’m interested: since you all are excellent at building your own personal name brands, what’s your best sales pitch for a future viral marketing campaign taking advantage of a big Magic brand?

The Finisher

 

This week, Magic Mics was proud and privileged to present the brand new #sponsored official preview card Tyrant’s Scorn to the world, a spectacular uncommon that’s not just combination Smother//Unsummon and showcasing an amazing story moment from the upcoming War of the Spark where Nicol Bolas, the big bad evil guy of the last decade, swats the hero planeswalker Gideon Jura and breaks the epic Blackblade in half and… well… by this morning, you knew the rest. Yup, our preview got leaked merely hours before tonight’s show. Now, we’re no strangers to spoilers, having had Rhonas spoiled once upon a time and now this. And with the Russo Brothers jumpstarting a larger conversation about spoilers before Avengers: Endgame, spoiler alerts aren’t the exclusive domain of the Magic community. I think most of us can agree that getting spoiled on a card or a movie is not the ideal way to learn a story. So, with that in mind: let’s make lemonade out of spoiled lemons. How can we as a culture dissuade spoilers?

The Finisher

PC Gamer’s James Davenport wrote an article this week called "I Beat Sekiro's Final Boss With Cheats and I Feel Fine" in regards to using a mod to beat a video game. But that’s not the story here, folks; no, the story here is one particularly salty response on Twitter to the article that quickly became a viral sensation: “You cheated not only the game, but yourself. You didn't grow. You didn't improve. You took a shortcut and gained nothing. You experienced a hollow victory. Nothing was risked and nothing was gained. It's sad that you don't know the difference.” This amazing new block text immediately took off, spawning references on all subjects from speedrunning to easy mode to lifehacks and more. But it has yet to branch into Magic… until now. So let’s hop on the viral bandwagon, and tell me: what kind of shortcuts would send you into a similar tweet tizzy?
