  1. There has been a lot of buzz around the future of competitive magic and what Magic Arena would bring I am stealing the top reddit post about the TLDR ----------------- Firstly, the removals:Nationals, Pro Points, Pro Club in present form, World Magic Cup(after this one in December) - The Mythic Invitational at PAX East, featuring the 32 members of the new Magic Pro League(MPL), who have not yet been announced. - All former Pro Tours have been rebranded to the tabletop Mythic Championships. They will feature the 32 members of the MPL, as well as qualified challengers(qualification system following Cleveland and London not yet announced). There will now be four of these events instead of the previously mentioned six Pro Tours. - MTG Arena Mythic Championships, which will likely include the 32 members of the MPL, and qualified players(qualification system not yet announced, but will occur through Arena) - Players who participate in "Mythic-level" events will be ranked based on their performances. The MPL will be ranked in one system, and challengers will be ranked separately. - $2.5 million set aside specifically for the Grand Prix events at MagicFests. - Additional partner events which utilize MTG Arena will be announced in the future. Things that seem hinted at: - Some kind of promotion/relegation system yet to be explained. This paragraph: "Players in the MPL will be ranked based on points earned via high finishes in the Mythic-level events. Challenger players who do well in those events will also be ranked based on their finishes, keeping the MPL players on their toes and leaving room for newcomers to take their places at the top. We'll be releasing more details about the MPL seasons and rankings as we get ready to kick off the first season," seems to heavily imply promotion and relegation for challengers and poor-performing members of the MPL. - The slow inevitable heat death of Magic Online. This is more of my conjecture based on the fact that Magic Online literally doesn't factor into any of this. PTQs on Magic Online don't exist if there's no Pro Tours. So unless Magic Online offers qualifiers for the new tabletop Mythic Championships, it doesn't sound like Magic Online has any place in the ecosystem.
  2. So, Hasbro will be hosting it's own convention (Hascon), and has announced another surprise spoiler set Iconic Masters offers players a tour through some of the most iconic cards in Magic history. Featuring new artwork on many cards, the set brings an array of Angels, Sphinxes, Demons, Dragons, and Hydras alongside some of our favorite and most memorable spells over the game's entire history. Iconic Masters is truly a celebration of Magic's 25 years. Every box contains 24 booster packs of 15 cards each, including one premium card in every pack—perfect for drafting with your friends. Iconic Masters, which is being released as part of Magic's 25th Anniversary celebration, does not actually release until November 17, but that's what makes the event at HASCON so special. Back when Magic was still young, Prereleases used to be experiences that players entered into without knowing a single card in the set. Previews didn't exist, and Prerelease participants were experiencing the cards for the first time. --- Set Name: Iconic Masters Number of Cards: 249 Release Date: November 17, 2017 Magic Online On Sale Date: November 17, 2017 Official Three-Letter Code: IMA Twitter Hashtag:#MTGIMA Languages Available: English, Chinese Simplified, Japanese MSRP: $9.99 *Applies to U.S. Only
  3. Im calling bullshit on this number. The number of casualties from the Doctors without Borders hospital they destroyed last year would be a large portion of this number already and hundreds less than other independent sources claim. I get that they really cant disclose the real number because of the outrage it would cause but this number is almost insulting to our intelligence. Whether drone strikes are effective or even legalis another issue.
  4. I thought this was a joke when I saw the headline. Turns out it's real. NY Times Article But where do you draw the line? Who defines what "fat shaming" is? Why not ban mens ads as well?
