MiseTings (also Misetings or www.misetings.com/) was a Magic: The Gathering humour site and forum directed at a more mature (17/18+) audience than most other Magic forums like MTGNews and MTG Salvation. Misetings was notorious for their satire of recent issues in the Magic world with Photoshopped card images and articles. Besides discussing recent happenings in the world of Magic, there was also room for normal Magic strategy and general discussion, as well as Mafia games.

History[edit | edit source]

MiseTings was owned and operated by Mike Bregoli, a former professional Magic: The Gathering player. The name of the site came from a combination of two different Magic slang phrases: "mise" and "tings". Both words can be used to describe an incredible Magic phenomena. More specifically, "to mise" can be defined as "to obtain something that is unusually great or unexpected" or as "a mise", something that is unusually great or unexpected"; "tings" is simply short for "beatings".

The Misetings forum was notorious for its harsh, uncensored language and self-moderation. The site also introduced various catchphrases like "sarnath'd", "annoraxed", "In before ...", "Maro is batshit insane!", and a number of famous smilies, such as "Trey" (Trey.gif).

As of December 12, 2007, MiseTings has been taken offline. Fans have since built an "in-every-way-better-than-MT-circa-2007" forum, GoodGamery. The original MiseTings forum were since restored, and later died again, apparently permanently.

A new alternative and possible replacement to MiseTings is The Magic Lampoon, which name is based on famous media like The Harvard Lampoon or National Lampoon, etc.
