>20th Century Fox has closed a deal to acquire the screen rights to the hugely popular fantasy card game from Hasbro and will develop the property with an eye to launch a massive franchise on the scale of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings.



>> No.29509596

If it's not about Urza or the Weatherlight crew, it's shit and I don't give a damn.

>> No.29509603

It's okay. It won't change anything. There might be a small influx of new players because of it, but it will only help the community grow. You will still be able to go to your lcs and play with the same group of friends that you've always played with.

>> No.29509616


As long as the movie follows a struggling small-town Magic cardplayer on his quest to become the world champion, and it's all done Yu-Gi-Oh style with really overblown CARD GAMES then it will be a huge hit.

If they just go with a generic fantasy movie set in the MtG "setting" then it'll be a flop. It has even less thought behind it than the Harry Potter setting, and Rowling just made that up as she went along!

>> No.29509637

>screen rights

The list of shit that has been optioned for screen rights and has had nothing done with it is longer than the list of human rights abuses throughout history. When a studio says "we're in production" you can worry, but that's also a way of saying "We think someone else is doing something similar so we want to make some waves, but we will probably drop it into development hell in a few months."

That's what I'm afraid of. The "community" is too big as it is. We need to close ranks, not open the flood-gates.

The problem is that Wizards panders to their player base. If some movie franchise gets a horde of 10-year-old boys to start playing, the card game is bound to become more childish (more fart jokes in the flavour text / less complicated stories / cartoony art).

It's extremely unlikely. WotC have been trying to get a movie made based on MtG for years and it has never worked out because the game has no real main character to base a movie around. This was one of the reasons they choose to reinvent planeswalkers the way they did.

So either that plan actually worked and Fox decided that they wanted to make a movie about Jace, Chandra and Garruk beating up Nicol Bolas, or they just bought the rights to shut WotC up.

Was it "real" people just playing the card game, or were they all Planeswalkers, or what?

These gotta be somehow actual magical (card-derived) battles in a world where that kinda thing is indeed a thing that happens.

Jace takes on the role of the wise teacher who expects the best but secretly has a soft spot for the guy, Chandra is the flirty, energetic and impulsive redhead love interest who repeatedly makes bad decisions leading requiring John to rescue her. Bolas is stockier, breaths fire, has two legs and two wings, has no lines, and casts no spells, because he's only a creature instead of a walker like them and instead simply rampages though the city. Jace is killed shortly into the movie after a training montage and with his dieing breath tells John that he must seek out the mystic swords from across the planes in order to slay the dragon. Then follows five move movies, each of which involves hunting down a sword and claiming it from other villains with color-themed decks while John and Chandra draw ever closer to eachother, although her flirty nature cements them firmly in the "will-they-or-won't-they" territory.
In the last film, they collect all the swords and confront Bolas, only to discover that Yawgmoth has made him Indestructible! Chandra is horribly wounded by a blast of flame, then she and John share a touching scene in which they finally confess their love as he uses his tears to sooth her burns. Just as all seems lost, John is empowered by his true love and uses his unique Planeswalker ability to combine all the swords into one powerful weapon (pic related) with which he slays the dragon. Yawgmoth is destroyed in the blast and the world is safe at last. John and Chandra get married and rove the planes together, the stories of which will produce sequils for years to come. THE END.

Becoming a creature is John's +0, obviously.
And the combination thing is clearly the ult, probably -X where X is the converted mana cost of all artifacts being combined or something.
So what's his + ability going to be? It needs to be something thematically appropriate and that he can use during dramatic moments throughout the previous movies until he's gotten enough counters to use the ult.

Or, he doesn't need one and he just gets infinite loyalty counters from the unbreakable bonds of love.

To stop a religious war from breaking out in the city Jace joins forces with the Simic, a group of autonomous robots stuck in tradition and unwilling to change. Using his witty oneliners he soon wins them over and they join forces to take down James Izzet who is the corrupt leader(and also played by Dafoe in a wig).

I'm really okay with a character from our world becoming a Planeswalker. It can be done really well, and it's a really cheap and cheerful way to introduce people to a universe they aren't familiar with. They are right there with the protagonist throughout the film.

I would like to see this race added as a stand-alone expansion if possible, but I do not know enough about the code of the game to do so. I need your help to make this possible. Even if we cannot ourselves create such an expansion, we could always pitch it to the Stone Soup developers.
