Yep. But "they" in this case means those running D&D. I mean it could be the same people but if so they're looking at D&D and saying "not worth the effort" and "oh shiny new MTG season" and "Did you say something about D&D? I couldn't hear you over the cash registers ringing from all these collectible card game sales! $.$"That would be a Hasbro statement, I assume? That just goes to show what small potatoes D&D is from the Hasbro standpoint, which in turn puts the lie to various claims of Hasbro meddling in the game (not relevant to this thread, but a common sight in many others).
If they know how to make money from Magic, then they have at least some business sense. Which makes your statement of "if they had any" specious.
