Re: Magic:The Gathering

I just picked up this game. I know, I'm like 15 years late. My girlfriend and I have been playing quite a bit lately and very much enjoy it. It's eaten close to $100 very quickly, though.

My deck right now is red/blue. My girlfriend has a tough time beating me. I feel bad for her sometimes. I've looked through her deck, and some decisions she's made seem questionable. She'll play a bad deck 100 times before taking my post-beatdown advice, though.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

I was on vacation to Cape Cod, and I managed to find some older packs. I bought:
Nemesis Booster Pack (x1)
Invasion Booster Pack (x2)
Judgment Booster Pack (x2)
Onslaught Booster Pack (x2)
Scourge Booster Pack (x1)

Along with those, I bought:
Mirrodin Tournament Pack (x1)
Unhinged Booster Pack (x4)
Coldsnap Booster Pack (x2)

Do I really need a signature?

Re: Magic:The Gathering

I started playing MTG about 3years ago. I quickly got very competitive. Trying to keep up with the top decks can cost you an arm and leg (and thats just for the lands). So eventually I started playing online where I could draft more often(no need for specific cards just boosters). This at first made the wife happy because I stayed home more and wasn't spending as much money. But then I found Heroscape. I haven't played MTG since then. I still love the game just not as much as Heroscape. I just cant keep up with it financially. So I plan on keeping my online account and playing occassionally. Plus the wife likes and plays Heroscape, she hates MTG. So if anyone is interested in some cards I plan on getting rid of my paper collection.

Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

There's a very slight possibility my parents would let me. What sets are they from, how many are there, and how much would it cost?

Re: Magic:The Gathering

Ive always had a love hate relationship when it comes to MTG.
The game itself is quite fun and putting the decks together is a very enjoyable experience and takes quite a bit of strategy, or no strategy at all if you just want to play a fun deck
However, the constant release of new sets makes keeping up with the game almost impossible without a secret Cayman Islands bank account.
Im loathe to part with my collection, but its simply gatherthing dust and taking up space. Im planning on liquidating mine over the winter through Ebay....

Re: Magic:The Gathering

I owe a lot to MTG. My FLGS was one of the first in the country to carry "Magic," so I got in on the ground level. I quite playing just after the "Arabian Nights" were released. The selling of "Mox" stones paid for my very expensive BFA. Even now if a need a couple of hundred bucks, I just sell a small stack of cards.

Im currently trying to work out a trade with another member to get some Heroscape figures. I really want to get rid of the entire collection in one shot. If for some reason things don't work out or I dont get rid of the whole thing Ill be sure to leave you a message.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

I have been playing Magic since, I think, 1994? I have rebuilt the very same deck, as it was stolen from me not once but twice! (Once at a party, why was I playing Magic at a party? Because I'm THAT cool!, the second time was at the Joe Kubert school)

My deck is white/blue and while I have updated the power of the deck with some newer cards, I have been surprised how good the deck is in casual play, despite using older cards.

Counterspells, Sword to Plowshares, White Knights, Disenchants, Exalted Angels, Northern Paladins, Sleight of Minds, Balance, Wrath of Gods, Serra Angels and a few Velusian Dopplegangers just for fun.

I may not win tournaments (placed third in a very small local tourney due to luck and some choice opponents) but I have fun. And that's the name of the game. Fun.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

I hosted a tournament last weekend at my house, called it Phat Limited II (yes, there was a Phat Limited I). It was 1 pack of everything legal in standard, in celebration/shame of the largest card pool Standard has ever seen. For those out of the loop: Tenth Edition, Coldsnap, Time Spiral, Planar Chaos, Future Sight, Lorwyn, Morningtide, Shadowmoor, Eventide. 9 packs, sealed deck.

It was a blast. People had a lot of fun and there were only a couple swingy bombs. Most people built some crazy well-balanced/stylized decks. I'm looking forward to the next tournament I run...

*insert witty catchphrase here*

Re: Magic:The Gathering

I love magic the gathering and my favourite deck is the Elvish Preditation. I love this deck because it gets so many elves out and its ability "death touch" is awsome. I have like 10,000 cards so if anyone wants to trade heroscape stuff for some just me a pm. I've got a bunch of rares and all colours.

Magic the Gathering was introduced by Wizards of the Coast in the early 90's and basically pioneered the modern trading card game, whereas Pokemon came about in the late 90's.

Strong arms and sharp steel rule this world.
Never believe any different.
