Wednesday MTG Miscellany

~
Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

A sort of bits 'n' bobs for the lot of you today.  First Magic: the Gathering tidbit is some rather exciting details of the fall's Penny Arcade Expo / PAX West in Seattle, which we will all will have to wait until September for.  WotC staffers are back again with a variety of rather cool events / panels / programs including payload of Kaladesh previews.  



Of interest is a 'street fair', whatever that may be, being held on the street (of all places), just outside the Paramount Theater.  Colour us intrigued - we imagine a line of stalls, hawkers, entertainers all in a sort of exotic Kaladesh market theme thingy.  There is to be a Kaladesh World Building Panel, a Kaladesh Mechanics Panel and a number of other events.  If you've been reading MTG Realm for any time, you will know that we are huge fans of Panels - especially ones that are live-streamed.


Next item up - Magic Story.
Ken Troop delivered a great short in the continuing Innistrad / Eldritch Moon storyline arc.  Today's story, titled 'The Promised End', was entertaining and completely engaging.  The twist at the end of the story (involving the discourse between Jace and Tamiyo) was not expected, and like any good television mini-series, had a measure of cliff-hanger to it.  Looking forward to the next magic story !


In other news, the gang here at MTG Realm are choosing our 60-card weapons carefully for the next several months of metagame.  The previous season's best decklist was green / white tokens, but going forward, indications are that Bant Company is the monster to beat.  Additions from Eldritch Moon such as Spell Queller will make this build the most popular list.
