Hypothetically Modern: The End?
At this point I bring the Hypothetically Modern experiment to an end, slightly more details within.
When I first thought of the idea behind Hypothetically Modern it seemed really cool. I expected it not to be super popular, but I figured it would perhaps be a lot of fun to brew decks for. It turns out I was mostly wrong, in that it really started feeling like a chore that wasn’t super fun, but also ended up eating more of my time than any of my other writing. At this point I’m becoming more involved with the online aspects of the Judge program, and judging is starting to use up even more of my time. As such, I’ve determined that my time is better spent on other topics compared to Hypothetically Modern going forward.
What does this mean for content on NHMTG? I will certainly continue to provide content featuring decks on a weekly basis (though I think I will start alternating formats, for variety). I will also have more time I believe to focus on event reports and hope to start being able to make it out more frequently to play paper Magic (hopefully I can start hitting up Tuesday night Modern at DMC Manchester, fingers crossed). I should also be able to expand my collection on MTGO soon, which will hopefully lead to more content as well. It has also been brought up that ignoring standard is potentially a disservice to those interested in Magic, as it is the most played format after all.
