Marsh is best known to NFL fans as a defensive end for the San Francisco 49ers but he's also an avid Magic: The Gathering fan who's been playing the game since 11-years-old and has competed in high-level Magic tournaments including the 2017 Grand Prix Las Vegas. Last month, Marsh announced that he's going to start a stream channel for Magic Arena, the latest digital Magic: The Gathering card game. According to Marsh, Magic: The Gathering is a "big-time mental game" and he recently explained how it sharpens his mind.

Other guests during the livestream include Magic pro player Matthew Nass and Magic product architect Mark Heggen. Over on Twitter, Nass shared his excitement for the upcoming announcement:


The MTG product that they'll announce is probably the one that Magic head designer Mark Rosewater calls "this year's innovative product". Earlier this month, Wizards of the Coast teased an upcoming Magic product that's made for the Modern format. It's probably not the Core Set 2020 or Commander (2019 Edition) that were already announced this month, so it's likely to be the innovative product they've been teasing.


What do you think it could be? We'll find out tomorrow.
