    Yeah they clearly want the game that spawned an economy of it's own an a handful of community-created formats dead in favor of absolute control.
    Who the **** wants to play Commander, Pauper, Penny Dreadful or Tribal Wars? Play Standard or die.

    Yeah we need to see the damage. Either way buy silica gel bags and put them into your deckbox.

    So you play Arena or get ****ed. Because with no Nationals, no MWC, no Pro Club, no Team Series. Rebranded RPTQs and PTQs with undisclosed means of qualification that can only be run by "hand picked WPN members". If you don't live near a big store in a big city, you're already ****ed.

    Wouldn't even be surprised if the 32 MPL members have already been chosen anyway.

    I'm sure this won't bite them in the ass next time they make Standard ***** and the safety net of people playing other formats at MTGO and the LGS isn't there to save them.

    I don't know why everyone is blindly assuming Kaya is doing this purely because she WANTS to. Not like it would be unlike Bolas, who prides himself on subjugation and mind control, to find the perfect tool for the job of supplanting the Obzedat and then bribe, blackmail, or even outright BRAINWASH said tool. Truthfully, with the Novel's cover art showing Kaya apparently siding with the Gatewatch, my money would be on brainwashing. Breaking free of Bolas's mental domination would be reason enough for her to oppose him in the next set.
    So far all of Bolas' planeswalker mooks have been under him because he preyed on their character flaws. Mind control is beneath his character.

    I hope the reason she's hanging with Gideon next set is not that she had a change of heart and saw the error of her ways, but because it's the only way she can survive the Orzhov backstabbing after Bolas closes the plane with the Immortal Sun.

    Yeah Kaya just got typecast into "dumb girl does dumb thing because obviously evil person told her to".

    It's kinda clear the Orzhov don't want her to lead either.

    If Cynthia had the leading wand instead of Dawn we'd be seeing more girls like Cynthia and less girls like Dawn.

    Vikings should be subtyped Pirate Warrior.
    And if I were to bet, we're getting RTRTR 2-RTRTR 3-Core 20-New Phyrexia 2 on 2019 and Kaldheim-Lorwyn-Core 21-Vryn for 2020.

    Well at the very least we know they won’t hang us from a tree at the Mythic slot. We’ve seen all the mythics. Any further duds are rare or lower.
    That's where the EV dies tho. MMA was so good and MM2 so bad, because one had $5+ commons and uncommons and the other didn't.

    The nearest one is Las Vegas, which is a 6.5 hour drive. :/
    Salt Lake will never get another GP because of how poorly the last one did. And it did so poorly because it was doomed to fail. M15 sealed, the week before Khan's released, and on the same day as Salt Lake comic con. I wonder why no one showed up.

    That is terrible, terrible planning on the organizer's part.
    They put PTA25 and Worlds on the same days as EVO and the Capcom Pro Tour/Tokyo Game Show.

    They're doing it on purpose, like a very little bully trying to push their weight around and then complaining they were the ones getting bullied.

    It's almost like they don't want us to play.

    I've have migrated completelly to MTGO because 8 of our LGS have either closed or stopped running MtG events due to dissatisfaction with WotC's business moves these past two years. What remained are the two oldest stores in the city which have their own distributors, and a bunch of "stores" that can't hold more than 20 players and subsist on the regional cordinator being invested in them.

    We've got a GP next month and it's looking to be 600 people at most. I personally I'm not exited about it at all.

    WotC is balls deep on Arena, and will not correct course until it fails. And it will fail because it doesn't have the card pool and community of MTGO, nor the fresh and easy casual feel of Heartstone and Gwent. Then there's Artifact coming soon to eat at it's competitive scene too.
