On today’s Minute: Jace and Vraska journey further into Ixalan, plus the World Championship starts on Friday and John Avon’s Kickstarter passed $400,000.

The saga of Jace and Vraska on Ixalan continued today as Jace learned more about his telepathic abilities, the home that he and Vraska share, and Vraska’s aspirations upon their return to Ravnica. As the two grew closer, Vraska entrusted Jace with unraveling the mysteries of the Thaumatic Compass which will lead the two to the Golden City and the Immortal Sun. Make sure you read the tale to discover the truth behind the compass.

World Championship coverage begins on Friday at 9am eastern live from Boston’s Castle at Park Plaza. Rich Hagon’s preview of all 24 competitors and both of the final teams in the Pro Tour Team Series Championship can be found at daily mtg dot com. We’ll have live coverage of the event all weekend on Twitter. Follow along @HotCBlog.

John Avon’s Kickstarter has entered its final 24 hours of fundraising. More than 6,000 members of the community have raised nearly 400 thousand dollars. All of the stretch goals have been reached and John Avon will be live-streaming his gratitude as the campaign wraps up tomorrow. If you’ve been on the fence about chipping in, now is the time.
