Hello everyone and welcome back to your regularly scheduled Monday Magic Update. With the Hairy T Winter Standard Invitational Season in full swing and our Born of the Gods Pre-release events less than a week away – we’ve got a huge pile of exciting MtG updates for you this week.

Theros League – Week 2

In this event, I played Mono Red for the Heroes’ team to a 3-0 finish.  It’s really powerful if your opponent can’t gain life.  That makes Mono Red 5-1 in two weeks.   Because of this, I unlocked Magma Jet as a freebie for both teams!

If you’re new to League, here are the RULES.
