28:16-44:58 “I know your trying to help, but…”
It is obvious that WotC likes creating cards for multiplayer. Especially in recent years, cards like the gatecrash Primordials or the multiplayer releases show that WotC sees a need to support multiplayer magic. However, the topic of the day is whether or not these cards are actually good for the format. Eric says the they are not good, due to the fact that they are never well balanced, whereas Nole thinks that, even when they are bad, the fact that they exist means that Wizards cares about this demographic and that on its own is valuable. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
