Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,
Not much news in the Magic: the Gathering world today that caught our attention - gamers still pumped to draft Modern Masters 2017 this weekend, the folks at MTG Realm are still playing filthy casual kitchen table MTG, and the best comedy on the telly is American politics (so sorry to our cousins to the south).
Anywhoos, today we are catching up to what we've been posting over on the Tumblr machine -

Magic The Gathering Live Action Trailer
There has been a lot of Magic: the Gathering promo videos / set trailers, but one of my favourite to date is still this one for Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, which prominently features an encounter with the Mind-Mage Jace and evil Elder Dragon Nicol Bolas.
What is your favourite MTG trailer ?

Magic: the Gathering - Comic Book Angel
Serra Angel is a comic released by ARMADA in 1996. It is written by Margaret Weis and illustrated by Rebecca Guay.
“A young wizard who wants it all, summons the one being who can give it to him… the Serra Angel.”
Aldon, a young man from a Dominaria lost his castle to the wizard Dreygar. He summons a Sengir vampire, a frozen shade, and a bog wraith to help him to regain his castle, and later summons a Serra angel, who shows him the beauty of the world. Dreygar then sends a fallen angel to seduce Aldon. Aldon, his creatures, and the Serra angel assault the castle; Aldon kills the fallen angel and Dreygar, and once again rules his castle. However, his angel perishes in the battle against the fallen angel.
This comic came along with a lovely over-sized 6″ x 9″ alternate art (by Rebecca Guay) insert.
