aaahhhh. All becomes clear. Said admiral may have emailed me today asking if I had any spare commons/uncommons he could use in his commander deck. Very intriguing, so it was.
Incidentally, on a completely unrelated (yet still magic-y note) - I only really watch 3 youtube channels (well, listen to em, really, on my morning drive to work). For the first time (so far as I'm aware) all three are as of one mind. VIP Masters is an abomination. Not just bad. REALLY BAD!.
Pleasant Kenobi (who has also recently re-taken up 40k. It's actually rather nice getting a dose of 40k once a week, especially as he comes at it from a slightly bemused yet reasonably intelligent perspective.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVT5-lSrIpQ&t=4s
Tolarian Community College. The Prof is always reasonable and well-mannered (unlike Kenobi, despite them actually doing a once-a-month youtube thing together. Kenobi has a mouth like a sailor on shore leave). This is the closest I've ever seen the Prof get to actually looking angry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGYZxiDzq8s
Alpha Investments. Rudy (who is such a tremendous parody of a dodgy salesman it's a joy to behold) focuses exclusively on the finance aspect of magic. He used to work in actual wall street finance (or so he says, and based on his more in-depth videos, I'm inclined to believe him). He's just a number cruncher, and rarely actually plays the game, although he clearly loves the cards. He made a video last week about how he reckons a VIP Master pack is probably (statistically, going forward a few years) undervalued. But he still hates em. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-jilaV3__w
Just my evening's viewing. Thought it might be interesting to share.
Also, on an even more side note, this is a really useful vid if you're drafting M21. Even more so than their card/set review ones.
