Going strong? In relation to what? Yu-Gi-Oh! is clearly outselling it.

More like sucking the juices Tolkien’s cock. I’ve already proved that M:TG is broken beyond repair. The only reason there’s league play is so that WotC can advertise their garbage product.

In 10 years more? The game is already over, Yu-Gi-Oh! won. Yu-Gi-Oh! got more successful in 10 years than M:TG did in 20 years.
You can tap your lands into your late 40’s for all I care. Yu-Gi-Oh! is more popular, it sells better, and it has for a long time.
