In this video, we discuss the latest scandal to come from the Wizards of the Coast. Wizards of the Coast hired the Pinkerton Detective agency to track down and retrieve a “leaked” Magic the Gathering deck. A YouTuber was in possession of said deck and posted an un-boxing of the unreleased cards. The Pinkertons track down the YouTuber and bullied him into turning the cards over to them.
As strange as this may sound, I (Ash) spent time working for a private detective agency as an investigator. I have some insight into what the Pinkertons were asked to do and why they behaved in this manner. I don’t understand why Wizards of the Coast chose to go to a private detective agency with a reputation for pushing the boundaries, but after the last 8 months, I’m not sure how surprised I can be.
