    Future of MTG

    Hi all,

    I did not know where to post this, so fill free to attached it to any other post.

    I received this Video on YT from a friend who mostly play Modern.
    I think it is an interesting interview I would love to see a similar discussion about Legacy. Maybe someone knows the Prof guy and can ask him to do a Legacy interview.



    I hope you will find something for yourself.
    Apart Legacy i also play Commander and Premodern so it was somehow good to listen to it.
    Here are the topic discussed:

    1. Master sets
    2. Fetchlands
    3. New old Legends
    4. Signature spellbook
    5. Commander sets
    6. True name nemesis
    7. New format incoming
    8. New set incoming everyone will be talking

    I think these are the most interesting parts for Legacy players in term of cardpool and format.

    regards

    Pretty sure the Professor reads his YouTube comments... You could ask him there.

    @Matsu: I didn't watch this interview but the Leaving a Legacy podcast have interviewed Gavin at least twice, quite nice episodes. Here's a link (you can find the podcast on other sites too if you need, this was what Google offered).

    I don't know what was more offensive, the professor's attitude or Gavin's suit.

    I listened to the most recent one yesterday, it was very good. I recommend.

    Gavin's suit is epic and I've never had a reason to complain about the Professor. His most egregious misstep was when he went full-on SJW a couple times, and even that wasn't really offensive, just maybe a little overdramatic. Messages were on-point.

    EDIT: I'm being sarcastic, he has never portrayed the negative 'sjw' persona. People who are familiar with him know how upstanding he is.

    No, no, no, I was being sarcastic. It doesn't come off very well on the internet.

    And I quote myself:

    Loved the video, love the professor.

    As the Professor says, The future of Magic is Pauper

    Seriously, every other format is becoming too expensive to be affordable for average people. Pauper is the only format where you can build a viable competitive deck for under $60. MTG is a game, average people balk at the idea of spending over $60 on a game.

    I love the discipline of WotC employers when it comes to not acknowledge the secondary market value of cards. It is so silly, but i understand that it's needed because of laws etc, but still, sooooo silly
    "there is a lot of modern players who put a lot of time and effort and trading to get the cards they need for their decks"
    We all know he/wotc actually thinks
    "there is a lot of modern players who spent a lot of money to get the cards they need for their decks"
    But just can't say it.

    Well, yeah, but at least Gavin makes an actual effort to have his corporate double-speak not slap you in the face with it's blatancy. Honestly I think what he said is pretty reasonable, all things considered, and the perspective he seems to convey is actually a similar one that I tried to outline in previous posts I've had about "value" in products (which just got dismissed and lampooned because I wasn't succinct enough in my terminology, which, fair enough, but I do think the point has merit).

    It's "kayfabe" at its best ... like watching Bruno Sammartino talking about wrestling. Everyone knows the truth but people in the biz try to keep up the illusion.

    I don't think MtG is a game that has mass market appeal and doubt it ever will. It's a hobbyist pursuit ultimately and people who are really into it will eventually invest the money to play the formats they enjoy, just as people who get into shooting, sailing, games workshop or whatever else.

    This thread is called "Future of MTG"

    The thread above it is called "The current state of Magic"

    Anyone know where I can find the ghost of Magic Past to complete the trifecta?

    Definitely.

    Gavin keeps repeating we are listening the community but it takes time to react. I am curious if someone from Wotc/Hasbro is reading this forum? Legacy has a problem for a longer time especially with blue cards...
    On the other side he keeps saying TNN was a mistake and this card should never work the way it is working, but no ban Hammer.

    Legacy has this thing where people will openly admit that card are beyond the pale in power level but still allow them because "Legacy is the format for that". (See: Brainstorm). We can hate it all we want, and point out stupid bans all we want, but it's what legacy is.

    Do you think the majority of legacy players agree with your idea that legacy has a problem with blue cards? I don't... and if I did I would probably not play legacy. I think this could be a really good reason for wizard to not do anything about the "problem".
