            Yeah, I really hate how YGO "deckbuilding" is basically just Konami putting out pre-fabricated archetypes. Sometimes WOTC will release some format warping card that should not have been printed because there's some way to break it that they didn't catch in playtesting and that sucks but at least it's something that was found out by players testing the card out in different decks, you know? When new YGO sets come out there's not evaluating cards thinking "I wonder in which deck this will fit in", no new brews coming out creating entirely new decks, nothing like that, a new sky strikers or whatever card comes out and it's just like "oh that's sky strikers support". Just absolutely soulless from the deckbuilding end of card games.

    I thought that the Master and Mr. House were way more fun and interesting than the main commander they came with (Moth Man and Caesar respectively).

    The Fallout commander precons were kind of based on a single game in the series / one of the core elements of the series

    Dogmeat = Fallout 4 / Survivors
    Moth Man = Fallout 76 / Mutants
    Caesar = New Vegas / Raiders
    Dr. Li = Fallout 3 / Brotherhood of Steel

    Although Final Fantasy is going to be a full set, it will still have commander precons as well. I think the FF precons will follow a similar concept as the Fallout ones, with a precon being predominantly inspired by a single installment. I think it will be 4, 7, 10, and 14.

    There will be cards inspired by 8, 9, Ivalice, so on and so on, just not as much as the ones listed above.

        They without a doubt will. The only other property to get a full set and commander decks was Lord of the Rings and they were REACHING for characters to make into creatures to make a full set work. Bill Ferny got a blue card which was so weird I correctly guessed when I saw it that it was done because they just needed enough creatures to fill out a set. Balthier is the only one whose maybe iffy but the all the other characters you mentioned will almost certainly get a card. Anyone from FF7 without a doubt.

          I fully suspect there will be 2/3 Clouds and Sephiroths, the rest of the 7 party, the main Dissidia set, a few extra fan favorites as legends(Shadow, Jack, the kids from World, Ramza, Marche, Mog for moogle tribal) classic monsters and items (Chocobo with new saddle mechanic, FF1 Airship, Highwind, Ragnarok, etc. as vehicles, Cactuars, Behemoths, Moogles, Tonberries as creatures, Buster Sword , Masamune, Ultima Weapon, Gunblade, Engine Sword as equipment).

          The thing I'm curious about is how they choose to do summons. Are they going to be an instant/sorcery that does the effect with a kicker to make the monster as a token or a flip card? Are they going to be the PW equivalent(D&D used gods for most of theirs, plus a halfling bard and Minsc and Boo, LotR, 40k, and FO have none), or are they just going to be strong legendaries? There's a lot of design space for them, it's just up to Wizards and SE as to how they'll work.

      I love playing Magic.

      The good thing about Magic is that there are so many ways you can play it. I pretty much exclusively play Draft (be it a set draft or cube) and Commander.

      I don't really get playing competitive constructed IRL. It's so cost restrictive. Playing competitive netdecks on Arena is fine with me, I especially like competitive best of 3 online.

      I used to buy expensive cards but now I realize how moronic that was and stick to proxies + whatever I happen to get and win in drafts.

          You had the option to shuffle your hand once into your deck if your starting hand wasn't to your liking. If you chose not to. That's on you. If you did and still got a bad hand you either built your deck badly or like every TCG or card game in general no matter how well you build a deck you drew a bad hand.

                It's your fault for making assumptions and jumping to conclusions about a game that's been around for over 20 years.

                You don't need to keep up with anything. You just need to keep your mouth shut instead of jumping to the first and most obvious thing to defend Magic over a game you clearly know nothing about.

                You think I haven't played Magic? You think I haven't played Yu-Gi-Oh? You think I haven't played Pokemon?

                How do you think I arrived at DM in the first place? All I'm doing is disputing the statement you made about MtG being"the best." It's not, not by a long shot. In fact, it's easily one if the worst. It just gets put on a pedestal because people are too bought in to play anything else.

      It has a nice pace, and I like how players can set up big boards AND opponents often have to actually contend with the effects of them, compared to other games where you want to disarm them before they can actually go off. It's also really simple. I'd probably play more Sorcery if I didn't have to look up and re-explain the rules about sites n' shit each time I wanted to play it with a buddy.

      I am also ambivalent towards this schlock. It's the ugly sweater problem of officiating dumbass custom commanders of out-of-place pop culture characters, but at the same time, it's kinda funny that it's happening. Ones like 40k also actually just seem to be good in general.

      All my decks from back in the day were bought from boxes at antique stores of cards i thought had cool art. I stopped playing for like 15 years then got back in when my friend told me about commander. I gotta say, the Final Fantasy cards have me intrigued. I like the base Magic universe, but if i can get some cool effect/mechanics cards for a couple cents to make some casual decks, i will.

      I've liked magic for 14 years. Had my fun at kitchen tables and at my LGS with old affinity in modern. When Mox Opal got banned I sold out of 60 card formats for commander with buds. I still play standard on arena but after getting burned by bans I've stayed away from modern/pioneer like the plague. Especially since these modern horizons sets are pushed garbage designed to soft rotate the format.

      I wish they hadn't given up making new video games after MTGA, its dogshit but its all there is to play. Old duels of the planeswalkers games were a lot of fun

        Didn't they develop a top-down, ARPG-style game where the cards were skills that you used in battle? With each color well-defined and doing different things? With the option to mix-and-match the colors? And the game fully brought to an open-beta state? Only to cancel the game out of fricking nowhere at the last second and dump the project into the garbage because it wasn't going to make FOMO Secret Lair-types of money ?

            I can't speak to the quality of the game, but they should have simply scrapped the MMO aspect of it (which reading the Wiki article on it, it looks like they did) and then release it as a single-player Diablo clone. I guarantee they would've made some amount of profit off of it, rather than shelving the entire project at the last second.
            WotC is full of moronic business decisions like that though, although I guess it's more accurate to say Hasbro is. Fricking toy israelites.

          Spellslingers just joined it in the Magic video game graveyard, it was a bastardized version of Magic nobody asked for with basically zero advertisements and died pretty quietly a few weeks ago. Ironically the closest thing to a Magic experience in a video game I've played was Phantom Dust. Captured all the weird deck building and niche strategies, if anybody from wotc ever got eyes on that game we might have a chance at seeing an actually interesting mtg game.

      I enjoy card games and mtg has the best fundamentals. wotc is horrible at their jobs though, and competitive magic has sucked ass since KTK.
      Never enjoyed yugioh, but that's a side effect of my dyslexia.
      Pokémon is okay, feels like the only way to have a somewhat viable deck is to be combo heavy which isn't really fun.
      Hearthstone hasn't been enjoyable competitively since like the 3rd expansion.
      Runeterra is okay but riot can't balance shit, shifting to focus on single player was the right move.
      Eternal is okay, but the economy is really stringent for a digital only game.
      Snap is shit.
      Tried fusion world yesterday and they shit the bucket first set, whoever designed green needs to soduko, this is mtg ABUR blue tier do fricking everything.
      elder scrolls was bad.
      40k has like 6 variants of the same shit card game.
      VS system was pretty fun at first but they shit out sets faster than you could blink. I haven't tried the new version of it because using tv stills for card art is disgraceful. Didn't like the star wars game that did it either.

      I played right before Onslaught block and finally dropped Magic due to at the time poverty right after the Mirrodin block ended. Didn't play too long but I had a really good time. Squad of five of us hit Friday Night Magic for weeks on end at our local card/comic shop. Good times. Unfortunately, it's really hard to get back into - my old Clerics are no match for today's ultra net decking.

        Of all the "WE WUZ" character changes I've seen, this is the most baffling.
        This isn't a new movie/TV/comic adaption. It's a limited edition run of cards targeted at fans of the LotR property. The card being limited or meta worthy would appeal to people who already play/collect and would buy it regardless of franchise/art, but why would an unrelated piece of artwork attract LotR fans to MtG?

      All the mlp cards are silver bordered and you can shut down every brony by just saying "I don't want to play with silver bordered cards." The guy playing with optimus prime just gets to laugh though.

      There are like a million reasons. Here are some:
      The "mtg community" is too big and fractured to ever get behind a single initiative.
      The mtg community is 95% low IQ morons who can't do anything for themselves and 5% high IQ sociopaths who can't do anything for others.
      Many players value the collectability aspect, the ubiquity of the game, the game's long history and the hype and marketing cycle that you just won't be able to replicate.
      Everyone has played one too many shitty homebrew games that everyone's first response to this kind of thing will be justified severe skepticism.

                Theros didn't have a written story, you got some flavor text that suggested Elspeth was doing something, and outside of that the story is two Xenagos cards and deicide.

                I haven't exactly pinpointed why the modern Jace-tice League is so bad, when the original crew of the Weatherlight crew was so good, other than to use the excuse of "modern writers can't write for shit", but holy frick the difference is night and day.

                Fast forward that 20 years and you end up with a written by comittee storyline that makes sure to unclude all demographics and copies current popular thing, but also written by people who grew up on Marvel movies.

                I wouldn't trust a single thing that snake Rosewater says, frick that guy.
                But I do agree that it's probably a symptom of a "design-by-committee, copy whatever's popular" type of writing that just looks at the biggest median franchise (which at the time was Marvel) and just copies whatever it was doing at the time. The fact that WotC adopted a weird stance of saying "we want the Marvel audience" while also going "N-no, War of the Spark TOTALLY isn't just Avengers Endgame!" was endlessly frustrating and insulting.

                Having one or two cooks in the kitchen makes a WORLD of difference for storytelling. Not all of the old MTG novels were any good, but they left enough room for a good writer or two to sit down and actually create something worth your time. Just one or two guys could actually construct a vision for what they wanted the novels to be. WotC's current storytelling is schizo as frick with 6-9 short stories written by different people who are each just chopping through plot beats they were assigned. The foundation they're built on is weak since blocks are gone and there's no room to spin an interesting conflict or story since characters and planes aren't featured long enough to matter anymore.

                I don't even think all their ideas are shit, but nothing is given time to breathe and is guided by such a babbling crowd of hacks pulling in different directions there's no chance any potential isn't just squandered. Norse mythology world? Could be cool. 1920s crime city world? Could be cool. Wild West world? Could be cool? Under those conditions? No fricking way.

                It really is not. Hasbro doesn't want you to hold onto your cards and use them forever, they want you to buy the new product that just game out because it has some shitty alternate-art of a card you already have. Then they want you to repeat this again and again until you get product-fatigue and stop, because retaining legacy customers through quality product isn't as good for their bottom line as pumping and dumping as much product to children and morons who won't care that their new foil Dr. Who Commander card turned into a pringle because they're already excited about buying the new <Current popular thing> tie-in product.

          Pick a legendary creature (or sometimes planeswalkers) and note the colored pips that show up on it. Craft a deck containing only colored pips that match your "commander" and it's a singleton format, no duplicates except for basic lands. All other regular rules apply but you can also play your commander at any time and if he dies or leaves the field you put him back where he came from and can play him again but he gets more expensive each time.

    Playing with proxies should be the accepted standard.

    And, yes, anyone and everyone should be able to print MTG cards and sell them.
    People who would print good quality cards would float to the top.
    This way there would be sought after premium quality luxury printers, while there would also always be the trusted affordable options popping up whenever the prices rise up too much, yet the baseline would always remain "a legal card" since anyone printing unacceptable quality would instantly die off after just one run due to the word of mouth.
    So, yes, what I'm saying is that MTG cards should never cost more than $0.50 or a buck.

    In fact, what I'm saying is that anyone should even be able to DESIGN THEIR OWN NEW CARDS, and then add, release and print them.
    But if it's a shit, unfun, overpowered or meta warping card: it naturally wouldn't make it to any of the maintained popular "Allow lists", it is just added to the massive historical database of all possible cards and sits there. Never played, never enjoyed.
    And yes, Anyone should be able to make their own "Allow lists", to create their own formats and scenes. Good and great allow lists made by people with sharp and fun design sense would naturally float to the top and spread to define the popularly played formats, metas and scenes.
    Any good newly invented cards would naturally spread into metas, scenes and formats that they improve. Any bad unviable cards are forgotten, yet stored and always available, for any possible future revisions, reiterations or rediscovery in case some new meta makes them viable and good fun.

    So yes, What I am actually saying is that... YES, MTG should be OPEN SOURCE.

    WOTC monopoly has only lead to shit quality pringles prints.

    WOTC monopoly has only lead to money grabbing, broken, power creep card design.

    WOTC monopoly has only lead to formats that are shit and no one plays and no one who plays has any final say in.

    TL;DR: So, what I am saying is: Frick WOTC.

              That was just them engaging in moronic ways of analyzing business metrics. Assuming you are from Brazil, the problem as I was told by people from Brazil is that lots of people bought and played with English cards, the reason being low supply in Portuguese. The result is that many Brazilian players started buying English language cards intentionally to maintain a deck that was all or mostly in the same language. This results in less sales of Portuguese language cards. Rather than do the intelligent thing and increase supply some bean counter probably suggested "Um if they are buying English cards anyway we could probably just save the money on translating and printing a different language and the loss in sales would be made up for by what we save and many of them will just buy the English product".

              It's a little more complicated than "sales are bad". This is also on top of Hasbro, who owns WotC slashing everything to save money. WotC is one of the only profitable things Hasbro has and while it may seem silly, a common logic in business is that in their situation you slash WotC's budget to save the other parts of your failing business using the logic "That sector is profitable, it can take the hit while we try to stabilize everything else we own."

                Non-English cards also usually fetch lower prices which limits their value if later on you want to sell them online (an Italian is going to pay less for French cards than for English cards). Since English is the lingua franca cards in English are usually valued higher even compared to a given country's localized cards and so I think WOTC sees less and less value in printing cards in different languages.

              Even though the label is technically correct it feels weird to call them furries when they're basically Redwall walking talking animals instead of tall muscular lion men or big booba curvy cat women

                It's funny, I feel the same way except when it comes to Ral and Jace having animal versions. I guess because they are humans and I know that. They are being shown in a way that I would only expect if they were weird furriers on twitter commissioning art of themselves as an otter.

          Iirc some troony played in a Grand Tour with a bunch of basic lands that had "Trans Rights" and other such bullshit scribbled on them in Sharpie. Not necessarily copied cards, but it's pretty clear that Wizards doesn't give a frick what's on the cards (or maybe only if it fits the current political zeitgeist they subscribe to).

              I'm sure WotC has actual rules about what is and isn't allowed in a tournament setting regarding modifications to actual cards, but the truth is straight-up proxies are verboten (although I'm sure some players have used them and gotten away with it) and will get you banned if you're caught using them.

                doesnt matter, fake cards are either easy to spot by the quality of the cardboard or impossible to tell so may as well be a real card. no defacing on the front is going to change either of those facts

          IIRC you can play with proxies if you show the judge that you own the real cards. For example nobody actually plays with real black lotuses.

            Everybody plays with actual black lotuses, it's obvious you've never been at an oldschool or vintage tournament. Also that ruling only applies if the original card got marked or damaged during that tournament or in special cases like that one legacy GP where everyone got judge proxies for a commander card only printed in foil since almost every copy was warped to shit.

      Stranger Things, Street Fighter, and Walking Dead were all Secret Lair, meaning you had to buy the handful of cards for 50-60 bucks, to get one of each, and it wasn't something you could just head into the store to buy. They got a lot of hype over the Godzilla cards, the D&D set, and the precon commanders because they weren't online only specials. UB is here to stay because all they need to do is print some useful cards for MtG players (One Ring, Bowmasters, Master Multiplied, War Doctor, Blight Grenade, House, Minsc and Boo, etc.) to get them buying the set, and the fans of the IP will buy it so they can have their favorite characters in card form. And if they tack on an IP, they can sell a set they aren't feeling is going to be a good seller, like Dracula, Godzilla, and JP did.

        Draft Boosters didn't sell enough because Wizards puts out draft, set jumpstart, collector boosters for every set. They gut the 3 cheapest ones and replace it with one that costs 40 dollars more than draft. This kills draft because no one wants to spend that kind of money on jank. Chris wieners gets a raise.

    My passion for TCG has moved on. Instead of being hype for Magic, I am hype for Pokemon TCG, and making a new PokemonTCG Standard deck. I will still play Commander, at a casual level, but I strictly want to keep my Magic spending low, and I am not actively brewing any decks. Engaging with Magic in current times is depressing. I don't want to be a negative person, so instead of complaining, I'd rather just play a different game that doesn't make me feel depressed when I engage with it.

      I really enjoyed the single-player Gwent game they released, but I hated how you were basically locked to one "color" of deck and couldn't just play single-player Gwent with whatever you wanted.

    What was the peak of MTG in your opinion? For me it's Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013. The last year a set worth a damn was released, and it had some pretty decent mod support that added in a lot of the missing cards.

      I would say Alara block. After that they started to introduce more and more shit mechanics.

      The one-two punch of RTR/Innistrad blocks were some of the best Magic I had the pleasure of enjoying, that or the Onslaught/Odyssey blocks.
      Getting my entire apartment into Magic and going to Innistrad pre-release events and playing kitchen table magic with our cards afterwards was probably the last time I truly had fun playing Magic.

      >we live in a world where a novelty sex toy company could legitimately ask a fricking toy company for a collaboration on a trading card game
      I'm honestly surprised it was rejected.

    The same as everything else they translated tp MTG. with the least amount of effort.

    Dauthi were a favorite. Pretty cool affect but think it needed haste or something to be more aggressive.

      Is Jace being disguised as Ashiok supposed to illicit some sort of reaction? The story of this set seems dog-water, I don't really care, I am not interested in digging deeper into it. The mana-cost and first loyalty ability reminds me of a strictly better "Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded".
      I am not sure if this card will see play. All formats that aren't commander basically don't exist to me, so I will ignore them, I wonder if this is commander playable though. Planewalkers usually suck in Commander (unless they can be your Commander/General), so I am going to evaluate this as "pack filler".

    Where is that homosexual prince poster? This is gacha bullshit but at least gacha girls are cute. I laugh at hasbronies and anyone who buys their shit.

    >How well did WOTC translate Fallout into MTG?
    About as well as can be expected, by which I mean it's a total nightmarish prostitute assrape of the MTG lore and brand.

    >Are you excited for the Final Fantasy set?
    God no, they will turn Aerith into a Black unless Square literally puts a gun in their mouth, and even if they don't it's still just something that ruins Magic further.

    >What other vidya franchises do you think/hope will get a set in the near future?
    Think? Any shit that's even slightly popular? Hope? None. I hope they delete all the previous ones from the game and I hope they kill every person who was involved with these projects.
