Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and founder of SpaceX, has designed a custom Magic: The Gathering card featuring a photo of his dog, and calls it "Wizard's Familiar", a three-to-cast (triple blue mana) blue Legendary Creature Martian with "Shadow, Vigilance, and Artifact Return (go fetch)" and "Whenever you cast a spell, gain 1 life". The image he shared doesn't reveal its power and toughness, but it's probably less than 3.
Check it out:
Its flavor text apparently quotes Baudelaire: "It is the familiar spirit of the place; It judges, presides, inspires Everything in its empire; It is perhaps a fairy or a god? When my eyes, drawn like a magnet To this dog that I love."
Obviously, this card is fake, so don't expect Wizards of the Coast to print this in any Magic sets soon, but it's amusing to know that the second-richest man in the world knows about the popular card game. After all, Musk shared his interests in fantasy and sci-fi genres before, and even recommended Isaac Asimov's seven-book science ficiton series, Foundation.
“Worth reading Asimov’s Foundation,” the SpaceX and Tesla CEO tweeted before “in the order that they were written.”
The 49-year-old business magnate recently made headlines for adding fuel to the Gamestop stock rally.

It would be awesome to see Elon Musk play Magic: The Gathering or stream the digital version of the card game, Magic: The Gathering Arena, but he's probably too busy for that.
