Hasbro Financial Report

Hasbro had their Investor Day this week and released some information on the direction of the Magic franchise. You can view the slides courtesy of /u/shor from /r/mtgfinance here. The interesting news is Duels of the Planeswalker will get a quarterly release to match paper Magic, and they will "double their efforts" on Magic Online. It seems Hasbro has finally taken notice of the cash machine that is Hearthstone.

Fate Reforged Draft Analysis

We posted our Fate Reforged draft statistics earlier this week. We dug through the replays of 39,000 Magic Online Fate Reforged Draft games to determine what the most popular colors and cards are. Spoiler alert: Frontier Siege and Brutal Hordechief are really good. Check out Limited Analysis: Draft Fate Reforged / Khans of Tarkir.

Fate Reforged: By the Numbers

SaffronOlive posted a great article this week where he digs into the win percentages of the various decks at Pro Tour Fate Reforged to figure out what the best deck in Modern is. Read more in Fate Reforged: By the Numbers.

Magic Online Daily Event Schedule

Wizards announced some changes to MTGO DEs this past week. In a nutshell, they're rotating the times of Daily Events so that different days will have different formats in time slot. The new schedule takes effect February 18. In addtion, they killed Momir Basic Daily Events, added more Pauper events (now daily), and reduced the number of Legacy events. You can read about all the changes here.

The Swag of Pro Tour Fate Reforged

Pro Tour Fate Reforged gave us two pieces of new Magic the Gathering swag. A limited edition all-black Funko Pop! Nicol Bolas, and a sweet alternate art Ugin playmat. These are popping up on ebay, but the prices are steep (over $100 for the Nicol Bolas!) See more details in Pro Tour Fate Reforged Swag.
