KYT, Robert Lombardi, Bryan Gottlieb, and Vince D’Agostino get together to debate ch-ch-ch-changes! The changes of Metamorphosis 2.0 for new expansion set publishing, Hall of Fame eligibility, the MtG MMO, and predictions for the post-Pro tour Banned & Restricted announcement.

  • (00:02:45) Three stand-alone large sets per year, to be drafted alone. How good is this for constructed? What does it mean for drafting?
  • (00:07:00) What caveats should also be considered for Change 1?
  • (00:15:48) Is the Core set really the go-to set for teaching new players Magic?
  • (00:18:34) Less focus on the Gatewatch. It just couldn’t last forever, right?
  • (00:22:18) Is fewer Masterpieces sets a year a good call?
  • (00:25:35) Play Design, better late than never?
  • (00:31:33) Are the Hall of Fame eligibility update changes still enough to keep the Pro Tour Hall of Fame exclusive? And by exclusive, does this mean exclusively no Chris Pikula?
  • (00:44:04) Magic the Gathering MMO: surprise or stroke of genius?
  • (00:51:26) Will there be any Bans or Unbans tomorrow?
