>decent art only on the showcase cards
let's go with "no"
>Amon Amarth
the only redeeming member in their group was the guitarist if I remember correctly. That being said, the "It's Metal guise !!!1!" pandering not only looks fucking retarded coming from wotc, one of the pansiest companies on the planet, but it's also clearly going to be another Godzilla debacle
They'll push this shit for the consoomers who have heard that metal is a thing, people who like both will feel validated, and metalfags will turn their heads. The only clear result will be players angry at metalfags while the culprit, like always, will be Wotc

Fuck it, let's go on a small rant on metal's state and wotc:
The current trend of metal is ironically much closer to pop culture than wotc, (the ""recent"" big thing has been spoof bands in the vein of Alestorm (Pirate metal), Gloryhammer (Warhammer/WoW metal ?), Grailknights (He-man metal ?), etc... But since it's done with both talent & self awareness, it manages to avoid the hordes of nintendo fans/hitting critical mass & the problems they'd bring. Of course, wotc being out of touch wouldn't know that, but that goes without saying)
Judging from the bands that Wotc sent previews to, they're trying to pander to a couple of well-known bands (but not too known, we don't want to pay them too much money), EU metal publication platforms, and a couple (spanish?) euro bands that I don't know. The only good choices in the list of 15 to 20 are Rapsody of Fire (actual good band made by fa/tg/uys for fa/tg/uys) and Nanowar of Steel (more known by young fans, ie their demographic)

They're going for a vague "generic power metal" asthetic, which would mean a more 80s/90s conan style aesthtic, but not only is it is all over the place, it comes out as pretty jarring & overly pandering
Here's something close to what they're going for (pic related), tell me if you find any similarity with the set: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oo5rP_1k4lo

Apparently you don't play EDH enough. People whine about 'deck power level' all the time and get pissy as fuck when you stop them from doing something.

Well Anon that has been the prevailing philosophy behind every limited format for almost a decade now. "Keystone uncommons" are the most for-retards-by-retards thing I've seen in MTG and I've seen a LOT of retarded things in design recently. Ignoring that, you now have the whole giant archetype in Kaldheim that has cards that can ONLY target giants you control. Not 'target any creature for small effect, get bonus if targeted creature is a giant' but ONLY target giants. It's like legendary sorceries but without any of the flavor or flashyness to justify the shitty gameplay.

Normally I'm skeptical to affrimative action because it contradicts ideas of racial equality and meritocracy, but since WotC doesn't care about merits, as we can see by their shit design and non-existent playtesting, they might as well go with affirmative action. They have nothing to lose but everything to gain.

It gets them more Seattle-types. The truth is WotC aren't marketing to the "urban market". They're well-aware their cardboard is overpriced and more obscure than YuGiOh. They're hoping to get the "urban market", but they're really aiming for the wokesters and troons.

It's arguable as to whether or not it would be affirmative action, it seems that every black candidate who applies gets turned down for not "fitting the culture" at WotC. So these wokesters are either closet racists or these black candidates aren't woke enough.

Hopefully, the massive amount of product being pumped indicates to me that killing investors is a real possibility, but I wonder if that's going to be from the weakness of investors to continue to buy stuff that isn't making big enough returns or the weakness of the players to keep playing this game as it goes to shit.

And then there's that time I got to 24 spells while my opponent had a Narset out the whole time. Ever cast a Serum Visions multiple times in a turn knowing it's only going to Scry 2 but it's not even bad at that moment in time? I have.

Ok sure, the goal was to create great music. I'm sure no other genre has that goal lol. I guess in your mind metal was created to make loud sound go DUHDUHDUHDUHDUH.

But you have to be able to understand the themes of what you're listening to right? I'm not saying that every metal artist was all about fighting the system and opening people's eyes to the unfairness of conformity. I mean Christian Metal does exist and it certainly doesn't have those themes. But most of the popular stuff does. Try opening your ears and eyes and listening to what the artist is trying to say, it's fun.

I know these aren't strictly "metal" by purist standards, but listen to Prison Song by System of a Down. Or Enter Sandman by Metallica. Or Killing in the Name by RATM. There are definitely political and social themes in all of these songs, and they're not trying to tell you to be straight and hate gays.

what are you even talking about ?
Judaspriest became popular three years before Manowar, and both were very influential in regards to heavy metal's development. The difference was that Manowar was thematically about sword and sorcery that would later go on to inspire power metal, while playing music that was clearly heavy. Judaspriest on the other hand became the model for what the heavy metal aesthetic *is*
If you're just talking about the art, it's using codes of S&S artstyle (Think Conan or Elric covers), so not exclusive to the group or a genre of metal

>you have to be able to understand the themes of what you're listening to right?
See, that's the thing, I never really liked those themes. So, while I have listened to all of the songs you listed, at the time they didn't really influenced my vision of metal because I didn't listen to them on the regular. I was mostly listening to heavy/power groups telling songs about liches & heroes, magic swords & dragons, to the point that for me they're indistinguishable from the old-school fantasy aesthetic, and even metal itself, which I find hard to separate from tabletop
I can definitely agree that some metal groups are political, I just don't care because, frankly, most artists are retards and I'm rarely interested in the topics that they would explore

There's also the fact that i'm an esl, so I'm less tempted to attempt litterary analysis in another language, especially if it's about burger topics

Uh, do you have a better criteria for "evil" than "because I don't like it"?

"Probably harmful", I'll give you that, but the same goes for piercings, taking drugs, smoking, drinking alcohol, eating candy, practicing extreme sports, etc. Yet by modern (i.e. past few centuries) Western ethics, you're generally free to do what you're want as long as you're not harming anybody else; doing things that harm only oneself are not considered "evil" (they may still be banned, "for our own good"). And societies that adopted that ethos have kicked the asses of those who haven't so hard that it's not even funny.

Eh, more children seem to be harmed in a society like, say Egypt. Check out rates of violence against children, or child poverty, and California is far from the top. So liberal norms are probably better for children on aferage: less violence, less poverty, less bullying. Yes, maybe there are cases where dumb parents somehow let their kids get hormone therapy, but I doubt that that is enough to even things out, let alone reverse the balance of harm.

Now, I agree that our current norms are not good for the long-time survival of Western society, but that's something more diffuse and indirect than just "harming children", and the main problem isn't transsexuals, it's just people that don't have kids; LGBT etc. are just a fraction of those. But in the big pictures "didn't have kids because trans", "didn't have kids because focused on career" and "didn't have kids because ugly" amount to the same.
