The Finisher

This week, Simone Lim became the 2020 Pokemon Oceana International Juniors champion. This would be an incredible feat for anyone competing in the event, but even more so because Simone is just 7 years old! Clearly cut from the same cloth as our buddy Rhino ake MTG Youngmage, Dana Fischer, and Reid Duke, who himself began playing Magic when he was just 5. But Magic and Pokemon aren’t the final frontier. So tell me: where will tiny tots tower toward top tournament trophies tomorrow?

The Finisher

Last weekend, Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa completed his trifecta of trophies: now the 2020 Magic World Champion, PV added that achievement to his shelf alongside his 2 Pro Tour championships from 2010 and 2017 and his 2 Nationals titles from 2006 and 2009. This has once again brought up the discussion of who the Greatest of All Time is: Kai, Jon, Luis, Nassif... or Paulo. So tell me: who is your all time MTG GOAT?

The Finisher

Last night in the United States, President Donald Trump delivered the state of the union address to the nation. In his opening remarks, he said: “The State of our Union is stronger than ever before.” Now, it’s that time for Magic Mics. So if you were to tell the Magic Mics nation the current state of affairs, what is your 2020 State of the Game address?
