Gathering This Week’s Magic 12: May 1 – May 17

Keeping it thin – quality not quantity – again, because real life and busyness etc…. Also a quick note: GTWM will take next week off, so no update on May 24. Two year wedding anniversary trip to Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo. Weeeee. At least it’ll be magical.

Tournaments

It’s the Pro Tour! If you aren’t watching, you should start.

Also check out StarCityGames Nashville for the return of Legacy.

Spoilers and Speculation

M14 spoilers have started. It’s a core set, but still, THSPOILERZZ. Check out MTGSalvation.com for all the awesomeness. Seems like the set is shaping up well.

Also, what will Theros, the Greek (Gods?) inspired set hold for us? Here are some ideas that the Internet generally seems to agree with based on time-shifted cards from Time Spiral

Learn about Drafting

While MTGMedina and the rest of team Canada may be very high on this card, Marshall Suttcliffe has only bad things to say about the trap that is Hidden Strings.

Design and Development

One of the best sources for Vintage theory outside of Brian Demars takes a look at You Make the Card in the context of eternal formats and asks whether designing for Vintage even makes sense.

Fantasy and Art

This doesn’t really fit into fantasy, Vorthos, or community, but it’s awesome. Check out the MTG Fashion tumblr and “Who Wore It Better?

They say brevity is the heart of wit. I must be the wittiest. Enjoy the next two weeks without me. If you have comments or questions, post below or shoot them to me on my Twitter handle @MdaveCs. GTWM is a work in progress and I’d love ideas of how to evolve it to make it more useful and fun for you.

Thanks for reading
❤ Dave
