Quote from Card Slinger J »Fixed as in finally having official sanctioned in-person events for the format? My LGS tried doing that once with two 4 player pods where one player managed to win on turn 5/6 so we had to wait a couple hours for the other 4 player pod to finish before we could proceed to the next round. Each player was given a sheet of paper listing all the game achievements they've unlocked and for the player with the most unlocked received some kind of prize support from the store. I couldn't remember what it was but we only held the event once and that was it. This was before the pandemic btw. Even though it wasn't a competitive event it was a good way to get more Paper Magic players into EDH / Commander. The entry fee for the event was only $5 as well.
Maybe If Wizards of the Coast were able to add more swag for prize support like sleeves, playmats, or even promo cards that would've been nice. They're probably looking at what happened with FNM a few years ago and were like, "Yeah...we're not allowing LGS Owners / Employees to fake FNM events just to sell promo cards on the Secondary Market that we give them." You sure about that cause they're selling Secret Lair drops because you thought direct-to-consumer was a good idea but really wasn't when you thought it was a good idea to make it hard for players to play Paper Magic at Local Game Stores. Wizards of the Coast, If you really put the LGS first we would've gotten those Secret Lair Fetches by now but you decided to make them less accessible.

Quote from Spaz350 »Nothing helps distract people from losing their jobs, obliterating their savings, and not knowing how to plan for their future like watching the hobby they use for fun and relaxation hyping BRAND NEW PRODUCT AFTER BRAND NEW PRODUCT every other week.

Quote from WarMachinePrime »So two LESS cards in a booster for 1 dollar a booster MORE.
LESS product for MORE money. Easy to see through the dog and pony show WotC and Maro are running for Hasbro.
