For those unaware, Day 9 is youtuber that has a pretty fun show called Spell Slingers where he plays MtG with sort-of-famous and “sort-of-famous” people.
The show is also sponsored by WotC.
Seemingly out of nowhere, he chats about having a blast playing netrunner and how awesome it was to play. Some pretty cool kind words for our favorite game. And since I’m a fan of his (I think he’s a good ambassador for nerdy card games), I was pretty excited, even if the timing was kinda bad.
Then my buddy incepted my brain with the following idea: It’s kind of interesting that a game that has recently “returned home” to WotC gets some attention and a signal boost from a YouTuber that is sponsored by WotC.
So: coincidence or nefarious scheming by an evil corporation?
