Gathering Magic Week in Review: 3.27-3.31


Whew. What a week in the world of Magic, huh? I don’t know if many of you expected for there to be so much to talk about this week, considering the spoiler floodgates of Amonkhet weren’t supposed to open until next Monday. But, here we are with a whole slew of things to talk about and another week of fabulous content on Gathering Magic to highlight. So, let’s get to it! It’s another Gathering Magic Week in Review!
