Thread: Wizards should partner with Netflix to make a big budget Netflix series...

    Wizards should partner with Netflix to make a big budget Netflix series...

    There is so much to pull from MTGs Lore and MTG is more popular than ever.

    Done right, this could surpass both Game of Thrones and the MCU.

    Netflix, Amazon, Hulu all want a game of thrones like mega hit and are willing to spend billions on one. Amazon is spending 3 billion on a LoTR adaptation as an example and Netflix wants something to compete with this.

    If Wizards works with them, Netflix would happily invest a billion to make an epic series pulling from the very best storylines and lore in MTG and it both be a mega hit and would really do a lot to pull more players into the game as well.

    Season 1 could be the two brothers war, season 2 the phyrexian invasion, season 3 the Eldrazi etc (bird box was basically about Enrakul visiting another plane already, since birdbox was made by Netflix, it could easily be Marketed as a prelude to the Eldrazi invasion, a way to show what it feels like to have the Eldrazi invade a plane on the ground level.)

    Except they wouldn't do the old, good stuff - we would get more of the Jacetice League due to marketing appeal. The new lore sucks for the most part. Besides, I don't want older, well-crafted settings ruined by more of WotC's forced political garbage.

    They wouldnít be that stupid imo. Given the budget this would require, Netflix would put top notch writers and directors on it (the way Disney handles the MCU).

    I think Wizards knows that the old stuff is the stuff MTG players care about, itís far more epic and iconic. Although Emrakul will be amazing but they have to build up to it so season 3 at the earliest. If itís a hit they can slowly build to the new stuff with Nicol Bolas and the planeswalkers.

    New players don't care about urza and Mishra though. And anyone who doesn't play magic that would watch the show would wonder why the two main characters aren't in any recent cards

    Well, they did the Silver Showcase with old ass product that isn't printed anymore - with Hearthstone streamers.

    If they had actually known, we would
    a) have gotten way more Dominaria way earlier and
    b) they wouldn't have put out so much garbage like the Jacetice League or ruining beloved planes in their respective Return sets.
