Magic has very few historians. BDM is the Pro Tour Historian1, and he does an excellent job (as does his plucky sidekick, Rich Hagon). A big reason why MaRo started Drive to Work was to serve as an oral history of the game, and several of his episodes focus on telling stories from the game’s distant past.
Outside of that, though, there isn’t much. Magic is such a different game now than it was even a couple years ago, and it is really hard to explain that to people who weren’t there to experience it firsthand. While past experience is valuable, there are a lot of ingrained behaviors and assumptions that older players have that are becoming liabilities. We are in the early stages of significant changes to Magic—is there insight to be gained in looking to the past?
