I’ve seen a few blurbs about an animated series based on MTG being produced for Netflix... by the directors of Avengers: Endgame no less. Anyone know about this?

I don't know if it is going to be animated or not, but it could be. There is not a lot of details: https://www.polygon.com/2019/6/3/18648018/magic-the-gathering-netflix-series-joe-anthony-russo, but after reading a littler further it appears it will be animated. Was hoping for live action.

Yeah, that article is all I've seen of it.

Regarding the news... I'm... hopeful.

The animation could be good. But I haven't really been excited for a long time when it comes to the regular cast of planeswalkers, specifically Jace. An animated series focusing even more on these characters probably won't be my thing. I'm sure a lot of people will be excited for it, which is fine.

I'm excited for it because they have a few guys on board who wrotefor Star Wars: The Clone Wars which was awesome. If it ends up being anywhere near as good as that show I'll be happy :)

I wasn't a huge fan of Jace. Until the Ixalan fiction that is.

I am really curious about when/where it will take place.

I was trying to find an image referenced in Jeyal's link, and I found this, which while not QUITE on-topic, is pretty hilarious to me;

Reminds me of this story:

Mike Flores wrote:
In one of my favorite PTQ Top 8 stories of all time (Extended of course), the amazing Al Tran was up against a first-turn Land Tax. He refused to play lands. His opponent seemed to say Fine! I won't play lands either! If he couldn't get an advantage on Al playing lands, no one was going to play lands. It turned out Al was just mana-screwed, and the whole "sit-there" game just bought him time.

Well that and Manaless Dredge.

Funny enough, I've been texted this (meaning the "Get hyped" link) image twice in the last two days.
