The September 11, 2017 Update

Posted in Daily Magic Update on September 11, 2017

By Nicholas Wolfram

Nicholas Wolfram fell promptly in love with tabletop and video games when he was only two years old, and he has been writing about them since he figured out how words worked. Now he puts together words about Magic, which he started playing way back in 2000.

The Daily Magic Update is a roundup of everything Magic you should know on September 11, 2017. Today's Update is brought to you by Iconic Masters and its full card list!

Today's Must-Read

  1. It's Better to Make One Mistake Everyone Sees than Two Only You Know About | ChannelFireball | Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa

Everyone makes mistakes in Magic, even the greatest players in the history of the game. Here, one of those players encourages others not to fall victim to the sunk-cost fallacy and compound one mistake with another once you've made it.

Today's Previews

  1. Legion's Landing/Adanto, the First Fort | TCGplayer | Riley Knight

White Vampire Weenies? Mark that as another Magic first that Ixalan is bringing to the table!

  1. Spell Swindle | Instagram | Magic: The Gathering EU Team

When Pirates do their version of Mana Drain, they throw in a little extra effort for some better showmanship. Of course, they're also happy to take a little extra reward for their efforts.

  1. Snapping Sailback | MTG: Young Mage | The Rhino

Another day, another awesome Dinosaur prone to anger! But this time, it comes with a great video to go along with it.

  1. Trove of Temptation | Commanderin' | Phil DeLuca, Sean Watson, and Shivam Bhatt

Permanent Taunt-lite plus Treasure generation! Because what do Pirates want more than a constant stream of fighting and Treasure?

After Those, Read, Watch, or Listen to These

  1. Lions and Tigers and Dinosaurs, Oh My! | | Brennan DeCandio

Even though the world won't know everything Ixalan has in store until the end of this week, Brennan has already started brewing some new decks. And yes, of course Dinosaurs are involved.

  1. The First Rule of Magic Open House: Tell Everyone About Magic Open House! | Mana Leak | Kerry Meyerhoff

Magic Open House is all about playing with friends and new players, so there's literally no friends you shouldn't be telling about it! Round up your crew and head out to your local shop this weekend to check it out.

What People Are Talking About

  1. Iconic Masters

In our earliest full set reveal ever, the world got to see the entirety of November's Iconic Masters at HASCON over the weekend. And it looks sweet. I just want to see someone pull off an actual Channel-Fireball in Limited.

Deck of the Day

  1. Kenta Harane's Four-Color Energy

Kenta took this not-white deck to a win at the Japan Nationals over the weekend! With plenty of the format's top cards and plenty of energy-based "mana of any color," Kenta was able to send out a broad variety of threats and overwhelm his opponents.
