Strixhaven, plagiarism 

magic.wizards.com/en/articles/

Wizards has acknowledged that the Strixhaven art for Crux of Fate includes stolen fanart, and will be suspending its contract with the artist who stole it.

Hoping this leads to compensation, and maybe work, for the actual artist.

Who called it “Haphazard Bombardment” and not “Probaballistics”

For me, the lesson of Strixhaven appears to be that I'm fundamentally ally-colored

I'm :azorius: or :selesnya: depending on the situation. So I don't really have a place on Strixhaven, and it makes sense that I'm least uncomfortable in :simic: here.

But I don't feel at home there either, because the department I'd actually be part of is :orzhov: aligned and I'd hate it.

Google Translates MtG, Strixhaven card 

I have been directed by @SliverQueen to declare that you lose. I will be repeating this declaration several times on Friday.

Strixhaven spoilers 

The good: Kasmina's new card looks exciting. Also, fractal tokens!

The bad: Liliana is now a Strixhaven professor, and it feels both too soon and massively out of character

Strixhaven hints 

apparently MaRo's Tumblr list of hints included something that's led people to expect a Will and Rowan MDFC planeswalker

I like the idea that they're keeping the "Will and Rowan share a spark" thing from Throne of Eldraine by continuing to have them on the same card/closely linked cards

Random Card of the Day 

Admiral Beckett Brass

scryfall.com/card/xln/217/admi

This is a neat Pirate lord with a rare repeatable permanent theft ability, and the art is great too - she’s wearing trinkets from all the other Ixalan factions, and IIRC Jason Rainville based her design on his mother.

review site project idea 

Idea I probably won't get around to: a bookwyrm instance specifically for reviewing RPG books. In particular, reviewing adventure modules.

This idea from my digging, over the last couple years, through old modules and Dungeon, looking for location-based adventures to add to a sandbox campaign with minimal effort.

Could add custom review criteria:
- sandboxiness
- customizability
- Jaquay-factor

twitter.com/GavinVerhey/status

Twitter: people have been asking for a card for Erik, father of Saffi Eriksdotter and Hans Eriksson, and that gives Gavin Verhey hope for the fandom

so apparently with the release of Strixhaven, converted mana cost will become mana value

I don't think it's an upgrade, but that's probably just me being Old and the only consequence to me will be a few months of culture shock when I can start playing Magic in person again
