Playing Magic is a social event for me. It's what I do to spend time with the people I have chosen to spend time with. I can't do that on Arena.
And I hope I've found a new social hobby by the time Wizards inevitably (at least inevitably to my anxiety) says that the way I play Magic has become the wrong way.
