There wasn’t much news directly from Magic this week. Only one tournament, and that was Team Limited. A few more things regarding Unstable and Rivals of Ixalan, the Arena beta, but that was about it. Unfortunately, this does not mean we took the week off from podcasting. And this doesn’t mean we have a short episode for you. A prominent member of the Magic community has stated her intent to leave, and she has cited constant harassment as the reason. We’re discussing what happened and imploring you, the Magic players out there, to please help stop this behavior before it starts. It’s up to all of us to stand up to toxicity, misogyny, bullying, harassment, and hate in our community. Please, do what the title says. Be excellent to each other.
