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.

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.”

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.
