    Set designed to be drafted but....

    "although the Limited gameplay experience is Two-Headed Giant, we knew that the cards needed to have a life outside of that format. As a result, many of the cards in the set are designed specifically with formats like Commander, Cube, and Legacy in mind!"

    My body is eagerly awaiting TNN 2.0 and 3.0, hopefully they're both in the same set.

    If it's "sports themed" I would expect a Veteran Bodyguard style "Blocker" card that protects you, your walkers, and your partner. Perhaps wearing a football helmet?

    Oh good, blue was lacking in OP legacy warping cards.

    I'm not saying it's the easiest deck to play, but the plan is so linear that I could probably get white girl wasted and still beat people with the deck.

    Maybe for once they can just print a bunch of powerful cards that aren't blue/don't slot right into blue decks. Or maybe world peace will happen tomorrow. I figure those two outcomes are about as likely.

    Just print Strip Mine with an activation cost of 1 colourless. Fair and balanced.

    Really all I want is a Volcanic Fallout with "damage from [this] can't be prevented" or a Sulfur Elemental for blue creatures. That's all I ask.

    Conspiracy 2 definitely had a hardcore fan of D&T on the team, otherwise the deck wouldn't have gotten so many goodies in one set. Sure, Leovold was dumb, but oh well.

    There were also more announcements today:



    FTV is dead and gets replaced by more Jacetice League garbage. And they vomit out even more product to combat sinking revenues.

    Countdown until Black mana no longer has skulls on it starts right now.

    To be fair, though, making a product for the largest growing marketplace in the world to grow the brand is the smartest thing I've seen WotC do in a long while. Maybe they'll even think of price discrimination for sealed product in countries where US$4 a pack is excessive and do a good job making Magic a global brand.

    Then we'll all be rich selling our shitcards that spike in value due to a massive playerbase growth. Like paper crypto...to the Blood Moon!

    Why would they replace the skulls? Magic seems to be doing fine despite China's laws against the depiction of human skeletons. Only cards like Macabre Waltz had to be censored in the past.

    And this is nothing new. Remember Portal 3?

    I think the claim that there are laws against human skeletons is mostly a myth, if this article is correct.

    That seems even worse than an actual law, because absolutely no one has any real idea what would be allowed or not though.

    Nobody liked FTV anyway
    How insane would it be if the 19.99 box had JTMS in it (0.001% chance of this happening lol but still)

    Otherwise the battlebond thing is just the next Conspiracy and then we have another commander set, seems to be a similar release schedule to what they have had previously

    I could have been more liked if they didn't use the shitty foiling process and kept card quality up like in the first two FTV sets instead printing FTV: Garbage and FTV: More Garbage year after year.

    Re: The current state of Magic

    SCG completely dropped Standard from the second half of this year's Open schedule (except for Team Events, of course). That's a rather interesting (but not really suprising) move:



    On a different note:
    Valve has hired Richard Garfield to work on the digital trading card game Artifact

    Even more importantly, within the announcement video, they also said that they'll use Valve's market place for booster and card trading. Given that they'll take a cut with each transaction, they're going to make insane amounts of money from that unless the game totally flops. The monetization aspect alone might draw in a huge crowd (see PUBG having millions of Chinese entering the fray) and could probably put alot of pressure on both MTGO and especially Arena.

    Dropped Standard but not enough Legacy and to much Modern. I get that Modern is the most popular for some reason.

    It has the variety of legacy for way less money. I guess people aren't really afraid of their deck getting banned at this point in time.

    It was more sarcatic I forgot a smiley or something. I know people see it as a stronger Standard/weaker Legacy.

    I think more in the beginnign people were seeing it a Legacy Light but when they figured out that you can get blown out by unfair things they started to cry and Wizards turned it into a Standard Plus for them. When that change happened they got all happy.

    Modern is not even close to "Standard Plus." In fact, it's really never been that.

    Granted, it's not Legacy Light either, but quite frankly it's considerably closer to being Legacy Light than it is to being Standard Plus.
