ViceN53X (10 days ago)
Green - "I appreciate Blue's search for knowledge. Blue takes the time to look around and admire Nature. Even more so than White. What I positively loathe about that is that once Blue gets his bony little fingers on sources of the knowledge he so desperately craves, Blue wants to break it and make it into something else. Blue's ego is so strong that for some reason, he has to prove that he can do it better than Nature and do it better than anyone else!" Elder Maxson - "Millions. . . perhaps even billions, died because science outpaced man's restraint. They called it a new 'Frontier' and 'Pushing the Envelopes,' completely disreguarding the repercussions. Can't you see the same thing is happening again?!"
When is the next one of these coming out I really like it

interesting stuff, though I feel like the ferocious side of green was not discussed enough, at most it was mentioned while describing red, though I suppose identity and philosophy are not the same thing, it would be nice to reflect on both in such an interview
varego Gothi (1 month ago)
Black's philosophy is that everyone needs to take care of themselves. In his interview, he states he does not cause or condone selfishness. He just thinks people should be able to protect themselves in a selfish world. He doesn't hate the idea of selflessness. He's just skeptical about the idea. And frankly, White, the color of goodness, is probably the most selfish color. I don't see how his philosophy can't exist peacefully with green and white save for how they treat him. Green, each and every living creature is instinctively programmed towards self preservation. Living things kill to survive, whether its for sustenance or self defense. White, get over yourself. The first and foremost obligation each person has is to themselves. However they can exist in harmony with each other so long as they're needs are met. Civilization is a social contract. And frankly, white a black have plenty in common. They both seek power and will get rid of anyone that stands in their way. The only difference is that black will blatantly seek power for himself white white will claim its for the greater good or the will of some god. You at least know where you stand with black.

i love green, and i actually do believe that if you think you can exploit nature for ridiculous purposes, it is arrogant and foolish again believe it or not even people need nature to live. an example is with trees without them you cant breath oxygen and yet people cut them down in droves.

I'd have to disagree with green here.... We don't have a place in nature, we HAD a place in nature, and now we've outgrown it, and yes while nature is important to us, science and understanding are more important.

Just to clarify I know that this is a character and her view do not necessarily coincide with those who worked on this video. I just like poking holes in her philosophy. I can't help but feel that her mentality is flawed, since it's not only predators that take life. herbivores can be extremely dangerous. Rabbits for instance will kill each other for a number of reasons. On top of that ecosystems die out on their all the time. Predators could catch and spread a disease causing them to die out. The same could happen to the prey. A forest fire could occur, a volcano could erupt, a tsunami could hit, or a meteor might strike. Any of these could destroy ecosystems. Also wouldn't the mechanization of man also be consider part of nature. So, wouldn't blue be following his nature by following his drive for invention.

I've got a question for any commentators... What would the philosophy of colorless be?
James Lillie (4 months ago)
One thing which I find interesting about this interview is that there is one point which could crumble her philosophy which wasn't answered. If everything is predestined by nature then how is it possible for anything to deny it? In essence Black and the Technological progress of Blue may be interpreted as also being nature. It's like how any product can be all natural because all of the ingredients came from nature before being combined in some manner.

I can’t wait for the next one, it’d be super cool to voice someone, I’ve always wanted to be a voice actor, but I’m probably not the right voice for something like this... either way though these are really interesting videos. I was trying to get a better understanding of the colors I don’t play very often (black and white) for when I make custom cards on mtgcardsmith and it really does point out some things I couldn’t quite grasp about the essence of those colors

anthony cannet if you want to be a voice actor go for it. While your voice may not be suitable for some projects it might be perfect for something else that a voice like mine (voice of Green) would sound unnatural for.

Green is, indeed, the ultimate problem solver... it solves all of my mana problems, which is why I rarely build a deck without it. :D
sjames551 (5 months ago)
*Tries to stifle his laughter* Oh god, I can't even right now. I just... ah ha ha! *Few more minutes of laughter* Okay. Okay I think I'm good. Okay... wow. I did not expect to be disagreeing with Green this deeply, especially not to the point of being utterly amused by it. I would have thought 'how could I hate nature? It's the basis of the world, nothing can be disagreeable about that right?" Man oh man was I wrong. Green seems to think that Nature is already inherently perfect, that it is a flawless system that is to be envied. I call bullshit. Nature is not a 'system', it is not guided or controlled. Nature is inherently _random_ and chaotic. It 'solves problems' by throwing endless options at the wall until one lucky answer appears and takes its chance. Evolution occurs unintentionally and can easily end up being negative, not positive. Destiny as a concept is fun to believe in, but both nature AND history do not bear it out. No animal is 'destined' to survive or die, it happens by, well, happenstance. The reason animals are well built for their role is that they were lucky enough to develop ways to enact that role, not because fate ordained them to be good at it. And looking at human history, the sheer number of times the tide of history hinged on _sheer dumb luck_ easily outweighs the times coincidence seems to be contrived for a certain outcome. Destiny is not certain, nor is it in control. It's something we create for ourselves to strive for. And that brings up the most important point. Nature is not the end goal; it is a _baseline._ Nature is random events happening in an unstable equilibrium that can be easily unbalanced by a simple change in the weather. But humans can do more than that. We can learn and grow beyond nature's static randomness. We have the ambition to move past the limitations of nature, the drive and passion to challenge nature's dominance and prove our worth, and the knowledge and understanding to know how to manipulate nature to our benefit. Nature changes slowly, without direction, while humans are always improving and attempting to rise above their previous station. Humans are not just a part of nature. Humans have _transcended_ nature. We are BETTER than nature, because we are able to be more than just what is. Nature is merely where we started. It is not where we need to stay.
Sliverandzant943 (5 months ago)
sjames551 I guess Green would respond to the fact of trascending nature with a quote such as "And yet you still need to eat, drink, excrete and breed just like any other living being". On the other hand, if every human became perfect and immortal (ala Ultimate Lifeform, a goal fitting both Blue and Black), nature could be allowed to flourish (which is part of what Green wants), since it would no longer be necessary to exploit the environment (nor having descendants, since there would be no death to counter).

From reading the comments on this video, something tells me this is one video I need to watch. I’ve been working on a story concept where the hero is stuck in a nature vs men war with Mother Nature as the villain who plagues mankind. I’ve been having difficulty getting the premise to work because Mother Nature is a difficult character to be made a villain and what perspective to put the story on. While I do want to watch this video for the inspiration, I can’t. I even have this video paused mid-advertisement. I have my reasons not to watch Josh’s content, but I would like a comment detailing the video’s message. Thanks!

I could point out a lot of things wrong about Green's philosophy. But I think this one settles it all together by itself. What happens to Nature when our sun go supernova and all life dies out? Green losses. But blue and science can help us to surpass that problem.🖖
Sir Kibble (5 months ago)
her and black have the same exact out look on the world.....i mean at least on the fact that neither of them wish to change anything, they take the world in as it is. Black being more my favorite because he is fully able to admit his faults but calls everyone else out at the same exact time. What I dislike about green is her explanation to going with the gut.....is absolutely mental. Humans soul reason to success and survival is the fact that we looked for knowledge with trial and error. we need shelter, so we chop trees, we need food and hunting is dangerous, so we farm. it's in our nature to use our brains, she goes completely off the wall expecting people to go back to tribalism because her definition of nature is the only definition and our success as a species be damned.

I'm not a green player, I'm actually against its philosophy, but a very huge and nteresting point any green player can make is that mages always start drawing mana from the land, and the reason green can get more mana and stronger creatures faster is because they focus on that land, respect it, connect to it like Nissa. Green in its lore is VERY much so preaching a valid way to become more strong as a magic user

Okay, Josh...real talk, I didn’t know whether to go here or to FOB Equestria to ask this question, and this has nothing to do with the video at all. Why does it seem that Lily Peet has some sort of resentment or harshness towards you? I’ve been to their channel and he seems to bash on you quite often.

These are so freaking cool. Is the first one I found and I feel like an idiot for not checking out the other ones before now. I can't wait until you I'll get to blue and red. I got out of magic not long after the Return to Ravnica block. Partly due to apathy towards the game and partly due to financial reasons. But this is really making me consider getting back into the game. Thank you Orr Reed knighting my passion. I think you think this as well as the black and white interviews as something to listen to while deck building and it's giving me some pretty interesting ideas.

Hmm... Not to get personal, and I know this is referring to Magic the Gathering, which is a Fantasy RPG, but considering you and me are fellow believers, this actually works well with the principles of Christianity! No super-existentialism required! ‘Course, that’s just my opinion, but it isn’t a baseless one.

I like comparing the philosophy of Magic the Gathering to it's simpler counterpart Duel Masters. though I feel like the Nature/Green civilization is much more attacked than in MtG (Black/Darkness trying to corrupt it, Blue/Water trying to flood it, White/Light trying to force them under It's hierarchy alongside all the other civilizations and Red/Fire trying to steal all it's resources) The fact that all the civilizations are constantly at eachother's throats is probably the only reason the Nature/Green civilization still exists.

As much as I love Green' philosophy, there is only one fatal flaw with it involving humans that connects with Blue. We instinctively learned to make tools and because it helped us survive, we kept doing it. Those who made the better tools lived on- Survival of the fittest. By saying humans shouldn't use technology takes away one of the important things that make humans special. Amazing video, I can not wait to see who comes next.

now her philosophy is something I could live by. it speaks truth to me. yet, i too am into technology, but not into it to destroy nature, unlike blue. i don't want technology to destroy or improve nature but help it and that's what i want my work to be. i am one with technology on one side yet one with magick on every side. one with nature as nature is with me. i don't fight against nature, i work with it and let it guide me

StrandedGeek (5 months ago)
Interesting thought process. Though I recently learned of a new "retro"punk style concept and it's a very interesting concept that in terms of Magic the Gathering it would be a Blue/Green deck if you will. It's called Solar Punk. Kind of the opposite of some of the darker stereotyping of Cyberpunk. It's the idea of instead of technology screwing us over and we say "Hey I got an idea, let's NOT sit our butts plugged into VR and wait for the end be it robots or zombies, let's clean up our mess and learn to make technology to save our world." Using more echo friendly tech. And no it's not a perfect paradise in a solar punk but it's the steps in the right direction. Things like vertical farming, using solar & wind power. There's more but this comment is long as it is.

White: Idealist Black: Realist Green: Hippie
Sephyrias (2 months ago)
+Lind the Chaotic Heretic Eh, I'm not sure if black really suits realism. Black is more like an idealist, who twisted individualism into something like universal egoism.
Lind the Chaotic Heretic (3 months ago)
+lonely one Just to clarify here, I'm specifically talking about the characters in this series. I don't know anything about the lore of magic the gathering, how to play it , or any of that. The reason I gave those three those labels are as follows. White and Black both show that they understand the reality of the world they inhabit. On one hand White, an idealist, decides the world needs to be changed and improved for the betterment of all. Black, a realist, views the nature of the world as impossible to artificially change and so the best coarse of action is to have each individual adapt themselves the best they can to the way the world already is and how it changes by itself. Green on the other hand shows that she truly doesn't know how the world actually works, or even how nature itself works, but she is convinced that she does. Much like a hippie, she thinks that every problem is already solved and that zero sacrifices need to be made, instead deciding that everyone needs to simply look toward nature. The problem with that is, everything she claims to hate is a byproduct of nature. Green is opposed to technological improvement, yet one of the most natural things there is is called evolution, adaption and improvement. Not to mention that even before humans became the dominant species, other species of plant life and animals were genosided into extinction by other species.
lonely one (3 months ago)
actually it is more like white: idealist black: pessimist green: buddhist on kaladesh, green is willing to artifice with the other colors. in theros, it enchants with the best of them. green's issue is when someone creates a "solution" that's already available or abuses a resource without thought. green see's the big picture. it chooses to work with what it has rather than seek out what it doesn't.

It's a bit ironic don't you think green hates black with a quiet passion and yet both colors work so well together when they do
glitch3141 (5 months ago)
I often hear people saying: "This color is stupid", or "This color pairing is the worst", and I don't think that's the right way to look at these. These videos are about philosophy, and no single color or color pairing's philosophy is inherently bad. Flawed? Absolutely. Taken to excess, Green's placid attitude is just as terrible as White's totalitarianism, or Black's utter ruthlessness​. But every color has both heroes and villains, and it's important to see what each color has that the others don't. Green has what it needs, and it knows what it is. No other color has that.

Man I'm not sure which I'm more hyped for next! ... Probably Red. I like fire a bit more than I like... machines? What element would blue be? His basic land cards are islands and his symbol is a teardrop, but his theme is technology.
Mr.13 (5 months ago)
Sorry, I'm rather passionate about MTG and I sometimes get carried away. My apologies.
sagely Demonologist (5 months ago)
Mr.13 At no point did I mention complexity, or lack thereof for that matter. I brought up the obvious connection of the core aesthetic of both colors (red being chaotic and blue preferring logic and reason) to a base element, of which only red fit their associated element (chaos with fire) while blue simply didn't (lucidity and technological innovation aren't usually tied to water, ice, or wind, the immediate connective elements of blue; that's more connected to earth, metal, or lightning when those are used). You've taken the conversation on a completely different tangent.
Mr.13 (5 months ago)
By the way. Red and Blue both have artifice elements to them. Blue is the mechanical genesis who's mind works like a computer to solve the problem. https://img.scryfall.com/cards/normal/en/vma/82.jpg?1517813031 Red is the inspired inventor who creates new solutions to the problem. https://img.scryfall.com/cards/normal/en/c14/35.jpg?1517813031
Mr.13 (5 months ago)
All of the colors are extremely complex ideals. Blue is logic, reasoning and induction. Blue is also water and wind the ocean and the sky. Blue is technology and Arcana. Blue is perfection through knowledge. At its core Blue has all kinds of tools at its beck and call. Telepathy, Telekinesis, Artifice, Arcana, Illusion, Temporal manipulation, Hydromancy, Areomancy, Cyrokinesis, Shape-shifting etc... And that's before we mix blue with other colors.

I want to discuss green in it’s two ally pairings,those being Gruul and Selesnya, and what is the dynamic between each of the colors in these pairings.First off would be the Gruul clan.The Gruul are usually summarize by their motto “Not Gruul then die”,yet that is not the case for Gruul.Looking at Gruul seeing red and green together may lead you to the concept of being of being wild and free,but it’s more than that.Gruul’s true philosophy is being free for the sake of growth.Red gives Green freedom to do what it wants and Green uses it to grow and develop faster.This means that freedom allows someone to be stronger because they can unleash their full potential more naturally and faster.This is why this pair despises white and blue.White gives laws that hinder a persons growth because of the restrictions,while blue uses unnatural means to acquire growth like experimentation and other stuff.Gruul isn’t just aggression but it’s the purest form of unhindered and natural growth for a person.To segway,Growth is Selesnya’s main goal.Though unlike Gruul that focuses on individual growth,Selesnya focuses on communal growth.Selenya’s motto is basically is “One For All”.Though much like Gruul it’s much deeper than that.Selesnya wants growth not for itself but for the community,it doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice oneself to help the community.White gives the concept that your just part of the community so do what ever it takes,Green adds to that by showing importance and a purpose to a person.White also grants order which allows Green’s wild side to be more time.This pair detest red and black.Red leads to chaos in the community leading to the hindering of growth.Black focuses more on himself more than anything else which is a direct contradiction to this pairings beliefs. Selesnya wants growth but not growth for oneself but growth for a community for us to be more powerful together without any unnecessary sacrifices.In summary these two pairings look for growth in either community or an individual,but in the end they focus on one thing natural strength without any forms unnatural means. Nice Work The Fiery Joker Keep it Up:)

The problem with Green’s ideology is that technology is a factor born of nature. Man adapted to be the smartest, then took the pieces nature gives us to fashion tools. These tool make us the dominate species. That mean nature has to adapt to US as much as we adapt to nature. Technically isn’t exclusive to nature, it is merely another piece of the puzzle that she chooses to ignore. It is not an “outside force.”

I once entertained the idea of a fan Green/Colorless faction that opposes the Guilds of Ranvica that embraces that same idea and its' ability focus on boosting the effects of equipment. After all, how is building a house, using a tool, ect. any different than a bird Building a nest. In fact, I would love to see a Color/Colorless faction in MTG.

Nathan Enzor I completely agree, and one thing both blue and green are great at are long term thinking. we as a species may be on top, but one thing that is kind of unnacounted for is sentience (sapience? Advanced intelligence.) We as people, self aware and intelligent, put a lot of stock into our own existance, even when we think of long term we think of it in human terms. To be fair, our adaptation of tools (and our ability to recover, ((things like healing a leg vs a horse that wont be able to walk again(((it's kind of funny that we consider them horses symbols of virility and healing when they are more prone to permanent injury,))) sorry, off tangent,)) our strengths are our only real ones, (humans kind of min/maxed). Nature has been kind of keeping up with us, at least the parts of nature we haven't/cant have, controlled. Things like disease, natural disasters, hostility in wild animals. It's more of a eco-political question of the complex issues, but the inevitability of it all is hard to argue, everything dies, get funneled back through the system, and life goes on. So yeah, humanity is the king of the hill, and we are still apart of it, but I think (in terms of human history,) we have only just realized that, this embodiment of 'green' is saying as much, if this green is meant to embody our ties to nature, i think she is the voice reminding us we are never truly above consequences, good of bad, and we are never truly immortal, and that the 'blue' part of us still hasnt fully accepted that we will never have full control, and that the 'black' part of us doesnt want to acknowledge that we will die, and the world, nature, the universe, will live on after us. (look at all the stories of immortality being morally wrong, or a curse,)

I love Green's philosophy, but I can also use it against itself: if everyone needs to follow their instincts, what if Black's instincts are telling it to be selfish, and Blue's are telling it to advance technology? ^^

KinamOfMyth yeah, pretty much, rather than making huge mana resources quickly, they kill efficiently, delve making big things cheaper rather than producing more mana. and yeah, necromancy is really big for b u g, that giant monster costs less to reanimate than it does to cast, that mana dork is useless now that the late game means i have enough lands. not to say they can't grow like simic, just that their necromancy is the source of that growth. I do love how the story changes from the khans to the dragonlords focuses on what the khans lost rather than gained, sultai lost green, and with it, their sense of community, only really serving the dragon rather than the brood as a whole, abzhan abandoned black, and with it the necromancy they used to stay connected to their ancestors, temur lost blue, forgetting communal Identity and elemental magic for the sake of maintaining strength in a world where you had to keep up with and serve dragons, Mardu lost white, seeing no more honor or glory in combat, only that bloodthirst and rage were necessary to survive, jeskai lost red, and with it, ambition, they sought to look inside themselves to improve, but never more than their place in the system the w/u dragons set

Silverslipstream; No problem, I just wanted to make sure what I was trying to say was clear. ^^ I think I understand. So similar to Simic's method of having blue manipulate green's ability, Sultai's black combines that with trickery and necromancy. And yes, I love how Bolster buffs the weakest creature on your side of the field, implying that when they fight together, they make sure everyone is just as strong as eachother, a very white way of thinking. It's similar to the Six Samurai in Duel Monsters where they can't use their special abilities unless they have one of their allies with them, and have several ways of special summoning to do so. Learning from their ancestors is also an aspect I love. Defense, unity, and wisdom. Abzan in a nutshell. (No offense to Josh, but I feel the themesong picked for them could've been better)

KinamOfMyth Sorry, the video had me thinking so deep i forgot about the card game. I apologize if my statements made it sound like i was pro-green to the point of antagonism, I get they are all flawed, and it definitely makes it better that way, these videos are really well made, addressing the misinformation and making things concise rather than promoting an agenda and asking people to take a stance. again long post ahead hmm, b/u/g is very interesting, (its my favorite game mechanic wise) it evokes the thought of "black" using a "blue" way of controlling natural systems (green) in sultai those on top are manipulative and vicious, they lie cheat and kill eachother to maintain control, but they do so to maintain the sultai brood, everybody wants to be in charge but nobody wants to abandon the system. their leader must be strong, vicious, willing to do anything to survive, otherwise their collective would suffer. on the bottom, though, the average joe is next to worthless, unless he can prove himself to be better than the undead thrall (or sibsig) they could make out of him. It encourages the strengths of green, but executed in a blue/black way. their mechanic, delve (less so exploit as that is silumgar's influence devoid of green) manipulates the death cycle, what black and blue consider unnecessary is cut out of your graveyard, and the rest reoccurs in a very green black way, making sure survival of the fittest is applied after death and undeath as well. gwb is pretty cool too, (i know i keep going back to khans, but that really was the best showing of enemy pairs) the abzhan green and black acknowledge the bleak harshness of the world and fight to survive, but do so together as a khan. black and white's necromancy is more spirit based, learning from the dead rather than controlling them. they only care for their own needs, fight to survive, and maintain the greater good of their ancestry, which is a very black way of viewing a green white community. outlast as an ability only makes a single creature stronger, but many creatures have effects that apply to anything with a +1/+1 counter, or replace a dead creature with a spirit. meaning when one becomes stronger, they all do, and when they die, they are never really gone, but if you aren't abzhan screw you.

Why does everyone treat blue and black like garbage aside form black. Lol everyone talks so much crap against blue and black no wonder these guys hate everyone. Also im starting to think red is too dumb to know nobody likes him aside from black

The Frigid Centurion Green just said she liked red, she just wishes that red wouldn't burn her forrests down when he gets too exited with what he's doing.
Brandon Hann (5 months ago)
The Frigid Centurion actually white likes blue according to her interview she works quite well with him though she is perplexed about blue seeking knowledge for knowledges sake.

I can get behind the destiny thing, just not the nature part to the degree green puts forth.

Bloody green....Collectivist, Slave moral, Haiku spouting, weak willed determinist. _Wind does not break a tree that bends_ *I Cast Plague Wind*
Mr.13 (1 month ago)
I know this might be thread Necromancy, but hey....Black. One thing I thinks is telling about Green's philosophy is that she assumes both her position "Wisdom" and those she observes "ignorance". She assumes all the colors are trying to change the world, but black seeks only to maximize survival in it & Red merely reacts to it. She asserts a selective naturalistic fallacy when defending her view but than quickly forgets it when haphazardly classifying her opposition. Green's slave morality is manifest in her ability to engage in sophistry when her faith is challenged; a trait she shares with white.
Mr.13 (5 months ago)
True but slave morality is also partially an act of mimicry; mimicking the linguistic trick that creates a Master Morality via statements such as "It good to be king" in order to make the weak value their weakness. Green's acceptance of Slave morality is due to it being utterly complacent with the application of it and so is unable to come to terms either logically or emotionally with the idea that the very notion of passive acceptance is born of those that benefit from your acceptance of your role. The one connection green will never admit to is the one between its ideal and role those ideals play in being made a salve to those who hold master morality. Green makes itself subservient to the surrounding ecology & calls this prison "enlightenment".
Sliverandzant943 (5 months ago)
Mr.13 Which is quite ironic, given how slave morality is based on resentment, and Green's goal of acceptance implies lack of resentment (it is never a predator's fault to follow their instincts, so there is no point on taking it personally). That is how it seems.
