Tuesday MTG Miscellany

~
Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

Not much of a post today for you - but be sure to check back tomorrow as we evaluate a few options on standard decklists featuring M14 / M15 Slivers.  For today, we'll just yatter about a number of miscellaneous Magic: the Gathering related items.

First up - 
The first large MTG tournament directly after the newest core set, Magic 2015 was released.  Not much to say really than this tournament put on by StarCityGames Open Series Baltimore was perhaps too close to the official release for many players to get a hold of the new cards.  Dan Jessup won the standard event with a mono-black devotion and the rest of the top decks did not feature much inclusion of new M15.

Over on the mothership today, Elaine Chase, Senior Director, Global Brand Strategy & Marketing for Magic: The Gathering had an important update as to what actions Wizards of the Coast had been taking with regards to the increase of counterfeit MTG cards - we suggest you give this a read.  We suggest giving this article from Chas Andrrs on SCG a review to bring yourself up to speed.

Next -
We had already talked last week about on our Tumblr Blog about the return of Wizards of the Coast to San Diego Comic-Con but were not clear as to the WotC panelist.  Pop on over to the mothersite here for the 4.1.1.   We can expect Mark Rosewater (Magic head designer) to moderate a panel featuring Mark Purvis (Magic director of global brand marketing), Doug Beyer (Magic senior creative designer), and Gavin Verhey (Magic designer).

Finally -
We now have our Magic 2015 pre-orders (a bunch of singles and an assorted card lot) in hand from MTG Mint Card.  This was shipped super fast by UPS and we can now start brewing some decklists in time for this Friday's Friday Night Magic event at OMG! Games in Barrie, Ontario.  

Our first-world problem - our shelf is now too full to accommodate our Magic: the Gathering collection.  :)
