The Finisher

Game Director of Magic Arena Chris Clay announced *today* that Direct Challenges are coming to Arena November 15. That means that you'll be able to challenge people directly, which means actual factual friends lists are soon to follow. Now I'm a fan of social mediums as much as the next guy, but I need another list of suggested friends like I need another LinkedIn request. But it's coming, so in addition to having people like, tweet, favorite, share, and subscribe, now we'll add Arena friends to the list, but how else can Magic add more to the gathering?
