Quote from arcane7828 »Hmm I guess my opinion is going to be unpopular... but here goes
I am actually mildly excited about the whole IP , platform divergent thing that this TWD SLD represents.
They can actually build whole TCGs out of other IPs using the MTG resource system.
Its like the old scrylist magazines (terrible stuff) where they try to play decks from different TCGs together (it normally made zero sense since the resource systems were totally different)
But MTG's resource system is pretty open. You know how Maro has these sessions where they fit characters to the colour pie (I think he talked about it in some article about how innistrad was build from the ground up) the resaon for this is that magic's colour system is more psychological profiling. So many characters can fit in. The only weird part in terms of immersion is the sorcery card type. But even then it is just an instant with different timing restrictions. Tech can easily fall into artifacts, and we already have vehicles and equipment. Myself I have always fantasized about wuxia (chinese martial art storie) characters made into mtg cards and in a way portal 3 kingdoms was just a crossover into "romance of the three kingdoms" back in the day.
So this development is both intriguing and scary.
So I really like this development... but I still hope Magic's core lore will survive.
Quote from tappwater »Daryl actually looks like a pretty fun, unique commander in those colors, and he's my favorite character from back in the day watching the show. To bad in those colors you can't build around him more, but I think I'll still build something with him. Seems fun.

Want my advice?
No, not really.
I'm a Vorthos player. I play the game but I consume mostly because I enjoy exploring the themes, characters and setting. The lack of these being just "skins" and the fact that they are not silver-border, and therefore optional, bothers me greatly. These factors, as well as the FOMO, limited distribution, and response to the problem by WotC is all just too much. I've been slowly buying less MtG in recent years and the release of this product will only make my consumption even less limited.
Fellow EDH players beware: if you play with these cards I will consider it my personal mission to knock you out *of the game, even if I have to go down in flames along with you. There shall be no Quarto.
