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?

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?

The Finisher

Prada has a new campaign for a handbag featuring Magic cards…

https://i.redd.it/ek1ln0bj3q441.jpg

We haven’t been able to prove the truthiness of this ad’s veracity, but if it is legit the Italian luxury fashion house is using the world’;s premier trading card game to help sell their Prada Women’s Leather Bowling Bag, which by the way sells for $2,350 on their website. So this got me thinking. It’s the Christmas season, shopping time. Still a week before Santa comes down your chimney to deliver sealed boosters to all the good little girls and boys. What other luxury products can Magic cross over with to help sell their wares?

https://img-9gag-fun.9cache.com/photo/aL0L0V6_700bwp.webp
https://img-9gag-fun.9cache.com/photo/aMYdYNR_700bwp.webp
This just in: Pot of Greed allows its caster to draw two cards. And now, Bandai is selling a 1-to-1 scale Pot of Greed, made popular in the tv show and trading card game Yu-Gi-Oh and available on their shopping site sometime in April 2020. So I will start my joke by playing Pot of Greed, which allows me to draw two cards. But tell me: If you could have a lifesize version of any Magic card, other than Pot of Greed which allows me to draw two cards, what card would you pick?

The Finisher

 

**THANKS FOR SUBS + BITS GOES HERE FIRST**

 

#BabyYoda is so hot right now. With the launch of Disney+ and the release of the big Star Wars series “The Mandalorian,” few things have captured the hearts and minds of the internet quite as quickly or thoroughly as “The Asset.” And as we all know, nobody can capitalize and merchandize as well as Disney. But Magic has some amazing merchandising opportunities out there as well. So with Black Friday a week or so away and the holiday season right on our doorstep, what’s your pitch for the must-have can’t-miss Magic: The Gathering holiday toy of the season?

The Finisher

Begun, the streaming wars have. AppleTV launched earlier this month, Disney+ launched this week, and just a few hours later Netflix and Nickelodeon announced that they’d be jägering together to help fight against the new dogs on the block too. And Magic had their own entertainment debut this week too, albeit much worse than any of the streamer services, with the release of War for the Spark: Forsaken. Now, Magic: The Gathering is a big brand with gravitas and clout. So it’s a good feather in a streaming services’ cap. So tell me: what would you produce using MTG’s vast variety of fabulous characters and storylines to try to compete in the Stream Wars?

The Finisher

 

Breaking news here on Magic Mics, never before reported anywhere else: Oko is Broko. Banned in Brawl this week. Taking over Standard, Pioneer, Modern, Legacy, and now Vintage. We reached peak meme over the weekend, as a Black Lotus got turned into a 3/3 Elk to help attack for lethal in the vintage Championships. It seems that everything and everyone is all Elks all the time, and I’m not sure how many more bridges we have to cross before we achieve The Final FrontElk. So tell me: what else is left for Oko to conquer?
