Diamond Bar, CA - Prolific rapper and cannabis consumer Snoop Dogg announced today that he will no longer be playing a mono-green Magic deck he's become a big fan of.
Along with renouncing his well-known love of smoking marijuana, Snoop Dogg announced on social media that he recently stopped playing a formerly-belovedCommander deck.
"It's time for me to put down one of my old dogs," Snoop announced in the Instagram post. "I've been playing with Fynn ever since I saw him, and he's been a good bud to the Doggfather. But now it's time to put him away. Whenever I play with him I'm focused too much on giving other people poison counters; I'm not being in-the-moment, and it's causing issues for the people around me. Instead of cutting back I'm still gonna keep doin' what I do, just with less green than usual."
The announcement then went on to become an advertisement for an upcoming Magic: The Gathering product that had not been previously known to the public.
"Mainly I'm retiring the deck because I've got a new one to play with: my upcoming Secret Lair deck with myself, The Doggfather, as the commander," explained Snoop while showing off the new cards. "Like the decks Heads I Win, Tails You Lose and Angels: They're Just Like Us but Cooler and with Wings, I'll be releasing my Secret Lair deck Nuthin' but A Commander Thang.
"It'll come with 100 of the finest Dogg-approved cards money can buy, in foil and non-foil versions, and include never-before-seen cards and reprints with my face on them, like Snoop Savannah Lion and Sword of Gin and Juice. Though I'm not the first rapper with my face on a card, I'm proud to have my own Commander deck. That's really what this whole post is about: my own product placement."
At press time Snoop Dogg also announced he will have a new song on the Lost Caverns of Ixalan set soundtrack, reminding people Wizards recently put out albums to coincide with set releases.
