“You read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!”
This Week in Magic
Well, Future Sight is almost here with the Prereleases this weekend, including the new card borders and a nearing completion “Rumor List” over at MTGSalvation! Discussion on the possible similarity of the official new borders and the card borders created by FirePenguinMaster. Controversy continues to surround spoilers and was fueled by the latest Ben Bleiweiss latest article on Starcity Games. The MTGO III beta is live and you can still sign up and try it out! Here is the official Wizards thread and the direct FilePlanet link to download the client and sign up. Also, a funny news tip sent to us that Randy Beuhler was once DQ’d for throwing a Snapple bottle.
Fact or Fiction
