Idk why but i hate when outlets like Buzzfeed or IGN try to vids on MTG. It feels semi-insulting... everything i need to know in a 4 min vid?
Pfffttt.. ive been playing for almost 20 yrs and i still have to look up rules for certain interactions.. it just feels so water down and overly simplified.. i get that its suposed to be "bite size" to get new people interested but thats like telling someone "this is gonna be easy" when it's a HUGE challenge..
I shouldnt be spiteful about it but some reason it bugs me..
You forgot the part where it's against the rules to be a magic player with a sense of humor, and the part where it's totally fine to cheat on camera in high stakes games as long as the judges are your buddies.
Firstly, thanks for making this video! Secondly, you got a lot of things wrong:
- Creature cards are also spells, as are artifacts and planeswalkers.
- Shivan Fire only deals damage to creatures, not opponents.
- Schemes only appear in Archenemy which is separate from everything else discussed. They're not legal in any format other than Archenemy.
- Magic is not a deck-building game. Deck-building games typically involve building a deck as part of the game mechanics. Check out Dominion, Ascension, and Star Realms to learn more about that genre.
- Psychic Corrosion does not make the opponent discard cards. Discarding is putting a card from your hand into your graveyard. Psychic Corrosion makes your opponent put cards from the top of their library into their graveyard. This is colloquially referred to as "milling".
- Commander is not an exclusively multiplayer format.
- Guilds of Ravnica and Ravnica Allegiance are not decks. They are sets. One product that will release with them are 60-card, 2-color decks called Guild Kits.
Forgot to tell the people about the pedo judges, the poor card quality, and lack luster sets post origins. Not to mention that there is no incentive to get into standard anymore since wotc got rid of player rewards
Michael Knives Well I'll play the devils advocate as commander is my favorite format, but no you would be wrong. Standard/modern but mostly standard is the most relevant format in terms of LGS tournaments, GP, and PT. But commander is definitely the most fun format in my opinion and I won't take a 60 card deck over it!
Poofie17 they never said anything about that lol they mentioned how the creators grew up playing mtg and who and considering that mtg is from the 90s and stranger things takes place in like the 80s they couldn't be playing it
This really takes me back to my childhood. 10, 11 and 12. I loved it a lot. My favorite part had to be the artwork. It made my imagination go wild. It might sound corny, but I made the world in my head and imagined myself in the art pictures and made up the world around me. I don't know, it was fun and I was young. Thinking back, I only got out of It because of stuff going on in my life. It was a big part of me for a while. Glad to see it's still around and people are enjoying it
It's a love-hate relationship for many who picked this game up in the past. After a bunch of expansion you can't really "not return" and now a PC game coming out, may as well check out what's being offered for the new generation.☕
hahaha a 4 minute video for this game does not do it any justice. You better re-upload with a few hours of content if you want to cover everything. Or better yet people should just go read Mark Rosewater's articles on dailymtg cause he explains more than anyone on ign will ever be able to about Magic: The Gathering.
There's always more to know, which is part of Magic's appeal. It is complex and requires great thought and effort. The game is worth it, though, and while it is fantastic to play, the best part of all are the friends you end up making.
Tolarian Community College,
I have kept up with you, since you started on YouTube. Your unbiased honest reviews, were a staple. I don't feel your post here was spot on. As an old head in the community, brutal honesty would serve the game, now more than ever!
"Magic the gathering online" which is more of a serious platform is simple, not flashy looks from the 90's, is made for people that think seriously about the game or dont have the access to the paper game and want to play. Then there is magic duels available on steam, is not really magic but a casual variant of it, same rules but with deckbuilding restrictions, you can try it but the game is dead due to resources being used to develop the new platform being Magic arena, right now is in close beta but you can always sign a list to enter, you might be allowed to play in about 1 or 2 months, most likely less since in this month there will be a big patch update in which they will increase the amount of players allowed to play, its free, looks great plays nicely, main problem is that economy is still being developed so if you are not a grinder and dont want to spend money then it might not like you, but as I always say its free and it doesnt hurt you ot try.
Not dusting cards can be seen as one of the downsides of the platform, but beta testers and community keep pushing for the change before release, since the beginning of the official economy update some things have changed and developers seem to be listening, but for some reason (most likely Hasbro´s corporate side) they haven't fully grasped the change. Also, the playing like hearthstone part is going to be hard since its a really different game, games look awesome and can be quick but by the nature of being skill intensive games they tend to be sorta of slow, you are going to have your 3-4 minutes time games but you can also face half an hour game, depending on the strategies you decide to play. I'd still recommend you the platform regardless on how familiar you are to magic, you can still do great as a f2p player, if you are new to magic is a way to play the game without spending any money, and currently is the best way to play it for free (unless you like xmage which plays fine but looks like garbage), also you can get to know the possible new formats, and if you have somewhat of an experience playing it will be easier for you since you know well what to build in the easiest way possible, plus its free and yes it might take some of your time but you dont lose anything else for trying it.
Arena does not let you dust cards. They do give you occasional wildcards to pick any card of whatever rarity version you open, from my understanding though you're mostly stuck with whatever you pull out of packs.
They could have, in theory, looked at past attempts to "televise" a gaming competition and looked at MTG as a reference in figuring out how to make it work for the internet age. This really isn't that hard to piece together, people.
"Televised gaming" is esports? I mean, are there esports on TV? I gave up the stuff back in 2004.
Honestly though, there is no evidence that Korea even knows about or knew about Magic on ESPN and everything I've seen suggests the two things developed simultaneously.
IGN is nothing more than a hired ad firm now.
Dying brands and new releases use their large "fan base" to bring in new players to bolster ratings.
To think they'd get much right is expecting far to much of this marketing shill of a company.
This is a part of a huge marketing push from MTG, after they've been hemorrhaging players to games like Hearthstone for years. MTG isn't "growing", it's actually dying really rapidly due to absolutely idiotic decisions by both the design team and the marketing team.
The game was always downright abusive when it came to beginning players, utilizing P2W mechanics to their fullest extent. Now they've completely lost touch with the core playerbase.
I love magic. I play arena and "for me" it's much more fun than heartstone. Now I hate the company running magic. Their decisions are making customers leave the game. An example would be banning people/LGS for dumb reasons. As for if magic is dying, not really sure. Since most people don't go to wizard's or magic sponsor tournament. The numbers decreasing doesn't say a whole lot.
Yagi Can you even buy singles for Hearthstone? Don’t you just have to buy packs to turn into dust? You can spend 80$ trying to get a card on Hearthstone as well, and it still wouldn’t be guaranteed from the pack.
Immutable Sky tbh standard isn't the format for most people it seems cheap at first but it's such a money sink it should only played by tournament grinders
Modern has a pretty high up front cost but your cards maintain a lot of value meta doesn't change that fast so your deck remains viable
And best of all there are no rotations
Officially no plans for that, but you can cheese it by syncing your phone to your computer and using a remote desktop link to play your computer from your phone or tablet. I don't know personally how viable that is though, it sounds cramped (at least for the phone), but it's just something I read online.
Honestly, I know some people are mad they are just now getting to this, but I'm happy to see one of my favorite games get some spotlight. Been playing for 10 years and sont plan on stopping any time soon.
Kinda says something about the game and wotc. Mtg has been around for 25 years, should it need promotion?
More importantly, with MTGO being around since 2002, why make another digital avenue with Arena? MTGO could use the love as is, better use of rnd and money. Paper magic could stand to have the same backing. Instead wotc ignores their existing children, who aren't in their best form, for a new spin. Mtg Arena is nothing more than, Magic Duels from 2015. Another abandoned venture.
Starting make sense, why they need to advertise!?
