Elon Musk’s shopping spree continues this week. Many thought the acquisition of Twitter would be the final stop on the midlife crisis express, however that train blew by the final stop and is heading straight for the docks.
As an avid fan of Magic: The Gathering, sources say Elon Musk’s next purchase will be to buy every circulating copy of the highly desirable commander staple, Dockside Extortionist.
Many question the motivation behind the move. Perhaps it’s to inflate the price to then sell them off. Maybe something a bit more nefarious? MTG’s social media communities were quick to begin speculating.
“Papa Elon knows a goldmine when he see’s one. After all he grew up owning one. With New Capenna, treasures will become an even larger part of EDH, and Daddy Musk knows it,” Reddit user HisMuskMakesMeElongate posted. “My guess is that he’s going to make Dogecoin purchasable with treasure tokens. To the moon!”
“Musk owning every copy of Dockside Extortionist in circulation serves no purpose other than inflating the already pricey card,” one reply said. “I think he’s spiraling out. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that he’s got James Bond tied up and is slowly lowering him into a a pool of sharks.”
