Magic Hall-of-Famer Luis Scott-Vargas took to social media Sunday afternoon to address negative comments from the Magic community after publishing a video on ChannelFireball’s YouTube channel Friday sponsored by Mythic Markets, a website that sells fractional shares of pop culture collectibles.

Scott-Vargas’ video, where he opened booster packs from Magic sets from 1994, came under fire when viewers pointed out there is no public market and no liquidity for products on the Mythic Markets website, citing an FAQ from the site.

Scott-Vargas went to Reddit to address comments and clarify his stance with Mythic Markets, claiming he wouldn’t promote with a company if it was a risk to the Magic community. He also linked a tweet from the company’s CEO, Jim Dowd, backing the implementation of a market place later this year.
