Terrible developments in M:tG

Magic: The Gathering is a great game that I've played off and on for the last 26 years. But the "promotional crossover" cards making their way into real gameplay (as opposed to Un-sets) really cheapens the game as a whole. This is a screencap from a game I played on MTGA last month where the opponent played a Godzilla monster. IIRC, this was in an Ikoria quick draft.

They've done similar promotional tie-ins with The Walking Dead and My Little Pony. I hope they put an end to this. Keep that stuff out of the canon.
