I don't actually mind the secret layer cards in theory. I've run into exactly one Walking Dead card since it's release. I'm not nearly as attached to mtg's high fantasy aesthetic. I think Chun Li's new card having multi-kicker is hilarious and I'm actively curious to see that card now. I'm also very interested in 40k cards. I thought the D&D cards were quite interesting overall, although the dice rolling felt really parasitic and gimmicky. I'd rather have a million random IPs scattered through the game than 1 more on theme Fierce Guardianship.
I don't actually want to dredge up the arguments again, but my biggest complaint about UB is that they feel like (and are) advertisements for other IP that you're coerced into playing. I don't like being pushed to play advertisements for other things in order to have access to the complete card pool.
I'm also really curious for what appears to be cyberpunk kamigawa and mobster demons.
I really don't mind this stuff. Magic can do basically anything it wants, so long as it's original. So far as I'm concerned.
Power creep has been slowly turning me off limited also. My favorite sets can be described as "Is Goliath Spider a reasonable playable?" That's become the case less and less often recently. I hate magic where if you stumble slightly on your curve you just immediately die.
For the most part I don't see a problem with power creep in limited. Maybe if we get to the point where you can pull off some cube-style storm combo T3, but that doesn't seem likely. Goliath spider has been terrible for a very long time (was it even playable in Ravnica? I haven't drafted original rav in a long time), but it also hasn't actually been printed in a long time. AFR is pretty aggro, but there have been slower sets too, it just depends. Yes, the game is overall a lot faster than it has been in the way back, but I don't see that as necessarily a problem when there are also a lot of tools to combat early aggression.

For me the thing that's more frustrating is when games too often come down to one insane bomb that totally upends the game. Stupid Mind Flayer keeps screwing me over, ugh.

I'm not trying to stir up an argument. Chun Li with multi-kicker makes me smile a little inside. I hope it's an interesting creature, not another Fierce Guardianship.

I love slapping down Angel of Retribution and having it dominate the board. I want my doom blade and Lightning Bolts, where answers could reasonably deal with creatures. None of this Grim Bounty 4cmc garbage, I hate to even mention Eyes of the Beholder. :poop: If there's better removal than creatures, that usually solves the game-winning bomb problem too. Give me some back and forth resource management games again.

Goliath Spider was totally playable in Ravnica Block. It wasn't fantastic but it was a reasonable top-end. I have fond memories of murdering people with it.

The game has been slowly, and consistently speeding up. It slowly saps away my enjoyment, every tiny powercreep. Inch by inch.

Double Masters seems the least interesting to me off the bat. Like, I can't even think of what reprints we need anymore since most everything has been printed a million times.
I guess that depends on what a player's budget and collection looks like. If you own a lot of cards and have been playing a long time, and you can afford 20-40 dollar or more expensive cards, then reprints probably aren't a big concern.

On the other hand, there are a lot of new players who don't have big collections or wallets, and the thought of spending 20 dollars for a single card is tough to justify. In that case, reprints are always welcome. Of course, proxying is a thing, but a lot of people, myself included, have reservations about doing so.

Additionally, oftentimes newer cards such as The Great Henge quickly wind up at a high price because of standard and other formats, but stay there because of commander and scarcity.
You are right of course. I am not saying that I am okay spending more on cards.
It's more that I am not interested in drafting a reprint set when there are so many cool draft experiences in 2022. The standard sets look great. Jumpstart. Un set. I am personally excited for Lord of the Rings.
And while there are plenty of 40$ cards they could print they will take up very little of the actual set. Unless they have fetches (doubtful) there is very little chance of a box paying for itself.

Some of next year's stuff looks great to me. The standard sets all look interesting as does Commander Collection: Black. D&D themed Commander Legends doesn't excite me, yet I will probably buy it as I have complete sets of everything printed since 2009 except Double Masters. I will probably skip that as well since I undoubtedly own everything they are going to reprint.

While the UB stuff on the whole doesn't really interest me, I will be purchasing the LotR set because I love the entire theme, but I will also get the 40K Commander decks as I have every Commander/Planechase/Duel Deck/Chrome/Archenemy deck WotC has published. No reason to stop that just because Ultramarines and Blood Angels will be fighting Space Orks.
Current Commander decks: Zurgo Helmsmasher - Borborgymos Enraged - Elenda, the Dusk Rose - Doran, the Seige Tower - Sliver Overlord - Yarok, the Desecrated - Scion of the Ur-Dragon - Hazoret the Fervent - Purphoros, God of the Forge - Gisela, Blade of Goldnight - Marath, Will of the Wild - Ramos, Dragon Engine - Ruhan of the Fomori - Narset, Enlightened Master - Kokusho, the Evening Star - Mizzix of the Izmagnus - Dragonsoul Knight (Pauper) - Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas (Precon)

Apparently Kibler not only plays commander, but he plays it with Post Malone and sometimes drops in on LGSs to play where no one recognizes him. It's so weird to have him just now discovering a part of magic where I have so much more experience lol. He also talks about playing competitively vs casually/socially (relevant bit starts at 3:00 and lasts about 2.5 minutes):

I mean, idk on what basis anyone could reasonably make a judgment in either direction. I will say, though, that AFR has had a pretty poor draft turnout relative to other sets.

To be fair we just got out of lockdown for a pretty nasty bug and spending time in a very under ventilated small shop with random people that I have to touch cards from packs they passed IRL just is a nope to me. Now as a Arena or MTG online thing its probably because the Dungeon mechanic while interesting is just so forced on the commons and uncommon that it really is more of a bother to try than to bend the deck around them.

I'm comparing it to Strixhaven and other post-covid sets. If anything, in NZ AFR was the safest-feeling set given that we'd been covid-free for the longest (obviously not right now though).

repel the RL, and they could end up in court...do cross over with other media= no possible court action that could cost money. Then there's the credibility hit they would take from dumping it, while with cross-over sets, not much of a hit, possible sells from both sets of fans, both whatever media they cross over with and MTG collectors.

That's how I came to my conclusion, that doing cross overs is cheaper for MTG,than repeling the RL as a cash grab.

I have no idea how big of a risk court action is for repealing the RL. One assumes it's significant since, well, they haven't done it.

I do know that a ton of people would be keen to pick up powerful RL cards. Definitely a lot of money sitting on that side of the scale. Reprinting the duals alone would generate an absurd amount of cash.

I have no idea how popular the UB stuff will be - as I've said, interest seems middling for D&D around here. I'm sure it varies widely by IP. I suspect the print runs on secret lairs are a lot smaller, which may have made the SLxTWD look a lot more enticing that it was. I'm dubious that a cross-IP product will generate enough interest to significantly buoy a whole set. LotR probably has a good chance, but that's probably the most famous fantasy IP in existence. I suspect others won't have nearly as much popularity.

There are obviously a lot of people who really don't like UB. Will those people actually quit? Who knows. I think a much larger percentage of internet dwellers care about the credibility hit of UB than the theoretical credibility hit of repealing the RL. I think it's a pretty small minority of people who would consider that a credibility hit at all tbh.

There are way too many variables to reach a justified conclusion. The best argument I think anyone without insider information can make is that WotC has chosen to do UB, and has chosen not to repeal the RL. Presumably wotc has the best information available, so probably they have good financial reason to think UB is a good business decision and repealing the RL isn't. But that's not a particularly interesting argument imo, it basically just amounts to a blind appeal to authority. I don't see how anything particularly insightful could come from arguing about it.

Personally I don't want UB and I don't really want the RL repealed either. I don't like UB because I think playing with advertisements for external IP - especially cringy external IP, cough walking dead cough - cheapens the game. I don't want the RL repealed because I've got a lot of very expensive cards that would lose a lot of value if they were reprinted (right now the possibility of selling some of them feels a lot more real, since I'm contemplating buying a plane...). There are also some cards on the RL I'd rather not play against very often, like Nether Void and The Abyss, though I'll admit they aren't really worse than easy to acquire stuff like Winter Orb and Stasis. It would definitely annoy me if WotC reprinted them after years of saying they wouldn't, since those statements were part of what drove me to buy those cards, but admittedly by this point they've pretty much all multiplied many times over in value. I'd feel a lot worse for someone who bought them a week before the reprints were announced.

Anyway, this topic is pointless.

I am excited for next years MTG sets. Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty and Streets of New Capenna look pretty cool. I am personally into the urban fantasy vibe they both have. New Capenna in particular should bring some interesting new art. An entire plane inspired by Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles of the 1920's & 30's is something I will enjoy

Yes!! I am so excited, Kamigawa is what turned me into a Vorthos as a teenager, and I absolutely love the aesthetics on display here so it is so exciting! Honestly, I know a lot of people have wildly varying opinions on Magic's aesthetic, but I use Magic aesthetics to go "Ooh yes shiny, good" so monkey brain is happy right now!

I'm not a Vorthos at all. I'm all the way Melvin, but I also really liked Kamigawa. Except for bushido. Bad flanking is bad.

Mmmm you can't really call it objectively worse imo 'cause there can be fringe instances where it's better (it has no cap on how much it can deal with trample compared to flanking, which can't bring a creature below 0/0 iirc) but otherwise yeah Flanking really is just better. Heck, remember Horsemanship? I would love to see more Bushido suppoprt, and I hope one day they errata the Brothers Yamazaki to have "Partners with Brothers Yamazaki" (If they haven't already).

My LGS just announced its impending closure, and I'm heartbroken. It's only been open for two years, and while I only get to play every two weeks max, it felt like a second home. I've had so much fun and made so many friends. The sense of loss is real.

A provocative new copyright for Magic: The Gathering cards raises unusual questions

A provocateur's registration with the US Copyright Office is turning heads

Hovden's latest [attempt at baiting an IP holder] is filing for — and receiving — a copyright on a Magic: The Gathering deck he calls "Angels and Demons." This deck — a collection of cards made by a corporation through work-for-hire arrangements with creators — is now claimed as Hovden's exclusive IP.

Hovden's public communications around this tease that he may prohibit others from using this deck in tournament play, and says it's all about "owning culture and people's participation in culture through copyright."

I've acquired buttermilk and pork sausage. Soon I will attempt to create biscuits and gravy in New Zealand.
Just had some biscuits and chorizo at one of my favorite spots for brunch. Life is acceptable, occasionally.

Chorizo is the food I grew up with that I miss the most. Honestly I grew up on chorizo, mole, and anything my grandmother could shove into a tortilla
Just getting set up, bear with me!

My dude, good food is one of the only things in this wretched death march through our mortal coil that make living feel grand. I don't know much about chorizo, but if you've got biscuits I imagine your day is off to a stellar start.

I envy you.

I hadn't had chorizo till I moved down here to New Mexico and had it in high school and now I love it.
