Segment 4: Topic of the Week

Conspiracy: Take the Crown has been revealed in full, and it’s for some it’s what they wanted Eternal Masters to be in the first place. Show and Tell joins Berserk as high-profile reprints, with plenty of other cards sneaking in, like Horn of Green and Ghostly Prison.


PucaTrade’s redesigned site also launched this week, and it brought with it foreign card support and a connection to the MTGO market. New opportunities are abound for the adventurous trader.

  1. So is everything for-pay content now- even when it’s not indicated in the title like today and yesterday’s articles? Going downhill fast guys. Makes me sad.

    1. Hi Chris. MTG Fast Finance episodes are now ProTrader for the first 24 to 36 hours, and then switch to free content. Check back Saturday morning!
