The Finisher

Alexander Clamilton. My name is Alexander Clamilton. And there’s a million games I haven’t won. But just you wait, just you wait. So now that the founder of the United States financial system slash Broadway musical cultural touchstone has been immortalized on a new Magic card in Unsanctioned like so many $10 bills (and $10 is a lot of clams), let’s turn it up a notch. What other Magic stories could Lin-Manuel Miranda’s genius spice up, if we’re not gonna throw away our shots?

The Finisher

This week, former Magic writer and current random action generator Travis Woo released a video this week in which he discussed… some things. “Multiple” things, if you will. In the interest of keeping the show PG-13, we won’t go into detail, but let’s just say Travis recorded, posted, and busted a 15 minute video about how best to “have a good time” in bed. Now, you might not take your sexual advice from the man who is best known for trailblazing Living End. But I know a winning idea when I hear one. So tell me: now it’s your turn to pitch your 15 minute sexual advice video. What are your tips and tricks for a “winning strategy?”

The Finisher

In one week’s time, the Early Access Streamer Event will be in full swing. #Sponsored. And that means that next week we will not have our regular show; instead, we will have 9 hours of fresh-from-the-witch’s-oven gameplay. Now, Theros Beyond Death is already Theros Beyond anything any grave cleric could possibly ask for, but tell me: we have a few short days of official previews left. But Standard hasn’t been perfect, and I for one think we could use an apology. So tell me: before we move into the brave new world of The Underworld, what amends would you like made?
