This or That Magic (Super Bowl Edition): New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons

Welcome to the sixth episode of This or That Magic, the series where we answer life's most important questions the best way we know how: with a game of Magic! This week, I'm joined by Richard for some football-themed action. As you probably know, this Sunday is Super Bowl LI, featuring the New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons! Who is going to win the big game? Should you place your bet on Tom Brady or Matt Ryan for MVP? We're going to try to figure it out with a game of our own! Richard will be playing a meme-heavy New England Patriots deck, while I'll be repping the Atlanta Falcons with Falcon tribal. Is Magic a good method for predicting the winner of the Super Bowl? We're about to find out!

Don't forget: if you enjoy the series (and haven't already), make sure to subscribe to the MTGGoldfish YouTube Channel!


Well, there you have it—the New England Patriots will win the Super Bowl in a blowout as Matt Ryan and the Falcons choke and their Goblin Bombs fall incomplete! All in all, I think my Falcons deck was pretty outclassed by Richard's Patriots. I mean, there really isn't a Falcon version of Jace, the Mind Sculptor. On the other hand, I can't really complain because Richard's deck was super sweet and all of his cards (even the good ones like Sol Ring and Jace) had reasonable justifications. I mean, Jace really does look a bit like Bill Belichick, and Thraben Inspector could moonlight as Pat the Patriot if he ever takes a break from his investigation. Anyway, now's the part of the article where you get to let us know which deck you think hits the flavor mark better: Richard's Patriots or Seth's Falcons?


Anyway, that's all for today! Enjoy the Super Bowl this weekend, and let us know who you are rooting for in the comments! Tomer and Seth will be back in a couple of weeks with another episode of This or That Magic. As always, leave your thoughts, ideas, opinions, and suggestions in the comments, and you can reach Richard on Twitter @MTGGoldfish and Seth @SaffronOlive.
