The Finisher

You might not know it from the coverage of it on our Magic: The Gathering news show, but Magic: The Gathering is holding a competitive championship event this weekend. The artist previously known as the Pro Tour, Mythic Championship 4: Mythic Championship With A Vengeance is coming to you live from Barcelona, Spain this weekend in the ever-popular Modern format. Now, here’s a fascinating little detail: did you know that Magic still makes physical Magic cards? And the event this weekend will be using them. Weird, right? So tell me, as time soldiers on and all the snow-covered lands that were just printed in Modern Horizons start to melt back into regular basics, what are you hoping for this weekend at MC4?

The Finisher

 

This week’s Banned and Restricted update saw great upheaval in multiple formats, what with Bridge from Below, Paradox Engine, and Iona hitting the bench and Painter’s Servant coming back in from the cold. Now, not everyone is happy with these changes (particularly Faithless Looting once agains avoiding the hammer) and furthermore people aren’t super excited with the myriad of other unbannable options left wanting. So in the future, after more cards hit the graveyard (and make a bunch of 2/2 black Zombie tokens as a result) what are you hoping to see a return from in the format of your choosing?

The Finisher

This week we’re gonna talk about toothbrushes. Certain HASBRO toy shop customers who tried to buy War of the Spark Mythic Editions earlier this year were unable to, then told they’d be sent War of the Spark foil uncut sheets only to be sent, you guessed it, toothbrushes. Specifically, Quip brand, which advertises themselves as “simple, affordable, and surprisingly enjoyable oral care for everyone.” So once Erin stops laughing at the words “enjoyable oral” in a sentence, tell me: what would a toothbrush have to do in order for you to be happy with it coming instead of your foil uncut sheet?
