Learning how eager WoTC are to reassure us that paper Magic isn't going anywhere has, ironically, made me begin to be concerned about the future of paper Magic

@DialMforMara paper magic is still a huge cash cow for Hasbro, so I don’t see it going away anytime soon. Still, it’s owned by a company so if it stops being profitable then poof. Physical cards have an insane profit margin though, so would have to be a massive swing to digital for that to happen.

What is more likely is to see further divergence from cards that are digital only to what’s available in paper.


@DialMforMara yeah. They’ve already released a handful of arena only cards and that’ll just increase I think.
