“As our goal is to increase the consistency and quality of the player experience at Grand Prix events globally, last year we invited various companies to submit proposals on delivering high-quality Grand Prix in various regions across the world.
The outcome of this process is that, starting in 2018, ChannelFireball Events (CFBE) will be Wizards of the Coast’s exclusive global partner to run all Grand Prix. CFBE is a company newly formed by ChannelFireball and Siteline Productions. ChannelFireball probably doesn’t need much of an introduction—they have provided Magic content, hosted successful Grand Prix, and brought their own brand of event coverage to Magic streaming.”

Temur Tower? More like Timid Tower. Pack 4 colors with Raphael Levy’s version of the Dynavolt-Tower-powered control deck over at TCGPlayer.

Aside from this being the second time I goofed on the URL of one of these articles, this was a sweet one for everyone else. PV cemented his name further in Magic history at Pro Tour Aether Revolt. Follow his journey with Team CFB Ice from start to finish.
I was waiting pretty impatiently for this one, because lord knows I need the help. Now you too can get the definitive guide to Aether Revolt Draft from Limited mastermind Ben Stark!
Mashi and Frank Lepore rank the 8 greatest two-mana counterspells of all time!
Is it just me, or is the novelty check from #mtgochamps more of a medium one? Like definitely bigger than a normal check, but not giant?
