The Finisher

PC Gamer’s James Davenport wrote an article this week called "I Beat Sekiro's Final Boss With Cheats and I Feel Fine" in regards to using a mod to beat a video game. But that’s not the story here, folks; no, the story here is one particularly salty response on Twitter to the article that quickly became a viral sensation: “You cheated not only the game, but yourself. You didn't grow. You didn't improve. You took a shortcut and gained nothing. You experienced a hollow victory. Nothing was risked and nothing was gained. It's sad that you don't know the difference.” This amazing new block text immediately took off, spawning references on all subjects from speedrunning to easy mode to lifehacks and more. But it has yet to branch into Magic… until now. So let’s hop on the viral bandwagon, and tell me: what kind of shortcuts would send you into a similar tweet tizzy?

The Finisher

War for the Spark preview season is well underway, and while the cards themselves are certainly exciting (and we’re looking forward to discussing them all in our upcoming complete set review) nothing has been getting more attention than the War of the Spark Official Trailer featuring Liliana, Nicol Bolas, and a dope “In The End” cover, which now has nearly 6.5 million views on YouTube. So in light of “War For The Linkin Park” blowing up like Ariana Grande, what’s the next big break in Magic: The Gathering YouTube?

The Finisher

On the last surviving Tumblr page, Mark Rosewater’s Blogatog, the Head Designer for Magic: The Gathering said, “The Global Series started because we were making an entry-level product for China and wanted the content available for others. It wasn’t intended necessarily as an ongoing thing.” Basically, he has a slightly different definition of “series” than the rest of us. But I think there’s more possibilities out there for future Global Series, so with that in mind where would you hope the Global Series heads to next?

The Finisher

Sad new to report from the Magic content creation community now: CNN broke the news today that Brian “The Professor” Lewis from Tolarian Community College died in a tragic accident. According to the article, “The YouTube star passed away early this morning after being rushed to the hospital.” Now here’s the sad part: that was just totally not true. At all. The Professor himself tweeted out as soon as he found out about the article that he is totally fine. So that got me thinking: what incredibly salacious and totally untrue headline would get social media buzzing about y’all?

Planeswalkers in WAR that aren’t on cards

http://markrosewater.tumblr.com/post/183340114063/will-we-see-planewalkers-not-in-cards-appear-in#notes

 

The Finisher

Tonight is the launch of the Magic Mics War of the Spark Complete Set Review Kickstarter, our third ever complete set review. Wizard announced that there will be more than 30 unique individual planeswalkers appearing in the set, making that the most ‘walkers I’ve seen in one place since my last visit to the nursing home. Ravnica’s about to be the hot spot. But here’s what I want to know: with all these big multiverse celebrities descending on the City of Guilds, where can a fan get the best glimpse of an planeswalking A-Lister?

The Finisher

Breaking news: the world’s top Bridge player has been banned for doping. Geir Helgemo was banned for a year by the Monaco Bridge Federation. Now, even though the med he tested positive for isn’t performance enhancing in Bridge, the Bridge Federation is recognised by the International Olympic Committee, and as a result they abide by their rules. But it is interesting to consider the implications of drug testing in Magic. So if the IOC brings digital athletes like Magic: Arena pros on board, how deep do you foresee that rabbit hole going?

The Finisher

This week, the hit SYFY show The Magicians referenced Magic! Well, it is about magic and magicians after all, but no! This time it referenced Magic: The Gathering, specifically a villain trading information for a Black Lotus. Now, Magic and The Magicians go together perfectly, and with hit shows like Stranger Things referencing D&D, HASBRO properties are hotter than ever. So where else would you expect to see products from the largest toy maker in the world pop up in pop culture?

The Finisher

Among the news that fell through the cracks this week is that the official hashtag for Mythic Championship Cleveland, #2019MC1, which was already ungainly, turns out shares its tag with the latest “semi-automatic polymer striker fired pistol” by the gun manufacturer Mossberg called the MC1SC. Now, Magic has run into the hashtag buzz saw before, most notably with the Montana Republican Party and the hashtag MTGOP, and later the cryptocurrency exchange “Mount Gox.” But surely 2019MC1 won’t be the last time this happens. So what other unfortunate hashtag mix-em-ups do you foresee coming down the pike?

It’s been a long year already and it’s only February, but don’t let all of the drama from the past week distract you from the fact that Jace is on Sparker, the Multiverse’s premier dating app! According to this viral advertisement from ChannelFireball, Jace the Heart Sculptor is Valentine’s ready! He’s Singleton and Ready to Mingleton! And he’s… also super cringey. This ad elicited many reactions from social media, and probably just as many left-swipes from fellow Sparker users. So my charismatic cohosts, how would you rewrite Jace’s bio to be less yikes and get more likes?

The Finisher

Magic cosplayer and propmaker Olivia Gobert-Hicks showed off her sweet new Magic-themed vanity plates today, as you can see right here: https://twitter.com/goberthicks/status/1093320787593838592 Yup, that's right: SOLRING. This is the latest in a long lineage of classic custom card-themed combinations, from INFECT to BELEREN to BOLTYOU to UUBBBRR, copying Cruel Ultimatum's casting cost (because of course there is always a greater horsepower). Now, we here at Magic Mics are all about being #OnBrand, so if you were to get yourself one of them sweet personalized plates for yourself what might you get?

Magical Mystery Draft tomorrow - RNA x2 & UMA & MMA

http://twitch.tv/coolstuffinc

 

Magic stream today:

 

  • No news or details on MTG Portal app
  • Masterpieces will come back in Standard sets in some form. ‘Collector portion is underserved’
  • No MTG Arena mobile fate decided yet.
  • Ultimate Masters began as Graveyard masters and they went all-out instead
  • Wotc not phasing out Modern, pay attention for something in Feb
  • They’re not making budget cuts to coverage, they’re increasing…?
    • No coverage announcements until everything is nailed down
  • Matchmaking for Ranked draft changing to weigh heavily on win/loss vs ranking
  • Best of 3 - jump two slots. However, bug that treats all Bo3 games as Bo1 in terms of winning/losing affecting rank..?

The Finisher

 

It’s been a week, y’all. Mythic Invitational, Mythic Edition, coverage going away, coverage returning, Nexus, Pauper, the judge program, and by god The Mountain Goats. Just like Hanukah, a small quantity of news oil miraculously lit show’s menorah for eight crazy nights. So since we have naught but 6 more days until the next Magic Mics, what, pray tell, do you think will be Magic’s next major announcement?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York’s 14th joined Nintendo 64 speed-runner Hbomberguy during a livestream event this past Sunday that helped raise money for transgender kids. This is the latest in a trend of a mainstream celebrities embracing the Twitch audience, the most famous of which occurred last year when rapper Drake joined Fortnite streamer Ninja for more than 600,000 concurrent viewers. Now, Magic Mics is on Twitch. And we’re hip. Cool. “With it.” So if a major mainstream celebrity were to crash our party, who should it be and why?

MTGA Update

https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-digital/mtg-arena-state-beta-january-2019-01-14

 

Duplicate protection:

Opening packs: If you would open a 5th-copy of a card, it is instead replaced with a card of the same rarity that you don't have 4 copies of. If you already own 4 copies of every card in that set at that rarity, you instead get other rewards:

 

Mythic: 40 gems

Rare: 20 gems

Uncommon or common: Vault progress at the current rate

 

Limited packs: You can open (and pick) 5th-copy cards. If you do, it won't be added to your permanent collection but converted to gems or vault progress, as above.

Individual card rewards: You can still get ICRs that are 5th-copy cards, but they'll be turned into gems or vault progress, as above.

Today was the Magic Arena All-Day Ravnica Allegiance streamer event, which the three of us took part in today (#sponsored). We got to play all manner of sweet brews with the new set against other Magic Arena streamers, #sponsored, and we had a ton of fun. I would absolutely love to be a part of any future All-Day streamer events, #sponsored, so in the future what kinds of things would you like Magic and Twitch to team up to do?
