The Finisher

Amongst the weirdest news stories this week was that HASBRO, the parent company of Magic, now has a new subsidiary: Death Row Records. The old school rap label founded by Suge Knight, The D.O.C., and Dr. Dre today is owned and operated Entertainment One, which recently inked a deal with HASBRO for 4 billion (with a b) dollars. Now, getting eOne also means that HASBRO can start making things associated with more toy-aligned properties like Peppa Pig and PJ Masks, but those are less interesting to me. So tell me: How do you hope Wizards of the Coast and West Coast collaborate in the future?

The Finisher

Somebody call Frank Karsten! Four-Color Kethis broke Standard at the most recent Mythic Championship Qualifier Weekend. Only a few people played the new combo deck, with both Ondrej Strasky and Stanislav Cifka managing 5-1s on Day 2 to qualify for MC5. With those impressive results, it seems the Czech is in the mail! Eh, get it? They’re bringin’ Kethis back. Well regardless, overly complicated graveyard-based iterative combo decks and StanCifka go together like Erin and the “block” button. But it kind of came out of nowhere, so tell me: what’s the next big surprise deck to take the metagame by storm?

The Finisher

For months, I’ve been asking the question: What is the MPL? Well, this week we finally got an answer. But sometimes when you reach the end of a quest, it leaves a hole in your heart. A knight who finally slays the dragon they’ve been searching for their whole life suddenly needs new purpose. So help me, friends: now that there is a clear path to the Magic Pro League and my grail quest has come to an end, help me find purpose again by telling me: what should my next quest be?

The Finisher

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/argentsagatcg/argent-saga-trading-card-game 

Argent Saga from games-maker ARG is a new game with a very popular Kickstarter and an ever-increasing following thanks to Gen Con that’s just come out. Problem is, they’re one set in and we’re already hearing they have a metagame problem. Stop me if you’ve heard this one: they have issues with a lack of graveyard interaction, an overpowered creature in a graveyard-based deck is a main culprit, and a box-topper as one of the most powerful cards in the game. Now, we Magic folks are fortunate that we can survive a Saviors of Kamigawa or three, but it’s tougher for the new kids on the block. So tell me: what advice would you give an Argent Saga fan hoping their game can keep on truckin’ past their second set?
