Welcome to the *CG thread, where we talk all manner of Card Games – Collectible, Trading, Living, and otherwise! Feel free to chat amongst yourselves about the card games you’re playing or anything card game-related that strikes your fancy.
So when I started this series I told myself that it wasn’t just going to be about Magic: the Gathering all the time, but I was definitely 100% lying to myself ok?
Because wow, MtG has been blowing up these past few weeks and I just need to talk about it.
Thing One: A mobile CCG spinoff of Magic called Valor’s Reach is coming out, currently in a soft-launch in the Nordic regions.
Thing Two (or B): Magic Arena launched cosmetics – sleeves that change the card backs and “styles” which are these parallax-y panoramic effects?
Thing iii (or maybe III?): Magic’s new expansion is in previews right now, and it has 36 freaking Planeswalkers in it wow what even. Also it has Mogu the good planeswalking doggo and Fblthp who is difficult to explain. It’s the culmination of modern Magic’s gameplay/story integration that started 4 years ago with Magic Origins and its success or failure will define the path of Magic’s future. There’s even a trailer:
Still utterly stunned that someone at wotc lived the dream and just went out and made an amv

Thing H (for Hearthstone): Oh also I guess Hearthstone’s new set is coming out and it’s about villains or something?
This week’s prompt: Tell me to stop just talking about Magic all the time geez
Or, as always, feel free to talk about anything going on with you in the world of *CGs.
