Things We Saw Today: Magic: The Gathering’s Cinematic Trailer for Innistrad: Midnight Hunt
Magic: The Gathering‘s return to the plane of Innistrad has been long-awaited, and the cinematic trailer from Axis Studios wonderfully brought a narrative together highlighting the gothic elements.
We see a young boy in an orphanage with a crutch being tormented by the overseer named Jerren. The kids are to pick apples or be thrown over the wall to be eaten by werewolves. Jerren calls a nurse to mend the boy’s leg, and … well, she turns all the orphaned boys into werewolves. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
It is a really cool trailer to get everyone hype for the set Innistrad: Midnight Hunt, which is already available on Arena and Magic Online.
Remember: A man who’s pure of heart and says his prayers by night may still become a wolf when the Autumn moon is bright.

In today’s chapter of what @Prof_JWallace cites as another example of “morenizar” —(dishonest) “browning” of Latin Americans, we have @Google doodle of white Panamanian Dr. Ildaura Murillo-Rohde. They intentionally and absurdly browned her up for the doodle. For what? pic.twitter.com/137gtYpUmw
