Building for Synergy – Symbiosis of Hearthstone and Magic

While Hearthstone may be new to the scene that was originally established by Magic: the Gathering, both games have a lot to learn from each other, as well as a lot to offer for the long-term success of both. The easy access of Hearthstone is perfect for lounging at home, and the interactions you have with other players during a game of paper Magic brings players to their local hobby shop by the drove. How will the existence of the two at-odds games impact the community of card game players?
