Alchemy makes me quit Arena
I'm a long time magic player and have spent several thousands of dollars on this game but after yesterday's Alchemy announcement I am sorry to say that I am done playing constructed on Arena. You're losing me as a customer.
I don't like the idea of digital cards changing so that they don't match the real world physical cards. This is a cognitive load that is unnecessary. Change the card name to something else if you're planning on rebalancing cards. Paper and the original digital version of the card should be in sync. I'm done with constructed on Arena. I'm not going to play it anymore and I'm not going to buy anything for it anymore. Best of luck. I'm leaving this game.

I'm leaving too... Alchemy is ridiculous. The fact that they've put these cards in Brawl and Historic Brawl is a MASSIVE blunder, because they fetch cards from outside of the game, even though that mechanic is banned from these Brawl formats. Brawl bans the use of sideboards/wish boards/learn boards... WOTC has decided to warp these formats by including Alchemy cards that fetch cards from "spellbooks" which are a zone outside of the game. This is either a mistake, or some dodgy stunt by WOTC to sell this new format, which I for one think is a disgrace.
