The Finisher

On a recently aired episode of Antiques Roadshow, a woman in Phoenix brought in a 3-ring binder with an entire Beta set in baseball card sleeves, Power 9 and all, to have graded by the experts. The set was valued at between 65 to 100,000 dollars, but many dealers and internet sleuths have pointed out that it is likely fakes all the way down. But we all have those stories of shoeboxes full of cardboard gold hiding in grandma's attic or hidden gems hiding in flea market bargain bins, so tell me: what's the best lost-and-found Magic card discovery you've heard of?

The Finisher

The big story in Magic was the same as the big story everywhere this week: Social Distancing. People across the globe have been encouraged to stop, separate, and listen to the CDC’s recommendations to keep a distance from each other and avoid groups. But as gamers and Twitch streamers, we’re bred for this sort of thing. So now that the Gathering has been forcefully subtracted from “Magic: The,” how do you plan to spend your magic hours?

Going Infinite

Q: If you could work in any department at WotC (related to Magic or not), which one would you choose (if any)?

 

Q: What were your favorite television shows when you were kids?

The Finisher

Cohost of The Command Zone and The Broken Pact guest star Jimmy Wong hit the premier for the upcoming release of Disney’s Mulan, where he stars as Ling, one of Mulan’s besties in the army. It’s a long time coming for one of the hardest workers in Hollywood, and a huge deal for the MTG content creator, actor, and YouTube star. And it leads me to ask the question: where will Magic podcasters walk the red carpet next?

The Finisher

The Theros campaign setting is coming for Dungeons & Dragons. Coming this June, clash with the gods of Theros in this campaign sourcebook for the world’s greatest roleplaying game in “Mythic Odysseys of Theros.” Now, we’re Theros fans. We’re D&D fans. And most importantly we’re fans of crossover IP. And so, it seems, is HASBRO, what with Ponies: the Galloping, Transformers and GI Joe mashups, and Nerf plus Fortnite, and many many more. So tell me: what’s the next hit crossover to appease HASBRO’s stockholders?
