Well just saw some news articles today talking about a new MTG animated series on Netflix. I know they've been trying to make a movie for years but I guess they got Netflix to green-light a series instead. It might have a chance to be interesting as an animated series - if they tried some kind of "live action" version it would almost certainly be crappy unless they threw Game of Thrones amounts of money at it.
I played MTG from around 1995 until the early 2000s. I missed out on the Alpha/Beta sets but managed to get a box of Arabian Nights cards before they became silly-expensive. I still have roughly 10,000 mostly mint (probably like 8,000 never played and a few other boxes never opened) cards sitting in a closet somewhere - maybe if this TV series hits big it'll spike the value of these cards and I can retire early. ;)
