The Magic Online Championship is always a unique event in the competitive Magic calendar and this one didn't disappoint. After many weekends watching and now commentating events on Arena I'm increasingly comfortable with Magic Online's younger, prettier sibling but there was something refreshing about going back to my roots — especially to watch formats exclusive to Magic Online for now with the pandemic hiatus on tabletop play. The commentary team, including our own Cedric Phillips and Patrick Sullivan, did an excellent job guiding viewers through what must have been a highly confusing but intriguing experience for anyone who tuned in expecting to see yet another Standard tournament on Arena.
