Does Wizards intentionally try to line up themes across products? Examples of what I mean are the close releases of Curse of Strahd and Shadows Over Innistrad (MtG) which are both gothic horror settings and more recently Tomb of Annihilation and Ixalan, which are both jungle settings featuring dinosaurs. As a DM who plays Magic this is great for me, since the new Magic sets provide good inspiration for my campaigns.

The Magic-D&D crossovers have been unintentional. Wish we could say we planned it! It had not been an issue in the past when D&D was not as story focused, so we missed that as an issue. We talk more about future plans now, though.Comment from discussion AMA: Mike Mearls, D&D Creative Director.
