The problem with defining this format by what is "fun" is that everyone seems to define fun as what they don't lose to.

If you don't want to improve your deck, then you should come to peace with the idea that you are going to lose because you chose to not interact with better strategies.
Why does the copyright date on the bottom say 2020 instead of 2021?
All the TSR cards revealed so far say 2020. They were probably printed and scheduled to be released last year but got pushed back. Regardless, now they share a piece of trivia with Visions - it was released in Feb. '97 but the cards have a '96 copyright.
