With so many products coming down the pipe in just 8 months, I can't help but feel like they're going to wind up very disappointed with lackluster sales numbers. I just can't see a significant portion of MTG players opening up their wallets to support this rapid-fire release schedule.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. How many of these products do you plan on purchasing? Do you think Wizards is overdoing it by releasing so many products in such a short amount of time?
