Gaming Any MTG playing Bronies out there?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this thread has been posted multiple times, but I figured to give it a new kick start! Anypony here play MTG? What kinds of formats do you like to play? What's your favorite color (or color combination) to play?

 

As for me, I like Commander, and my favorite color combo is UWR, or Jeskai/America. Hoping to chat Magic with anyone here!

*bump*

 

93-94 deck completed.

Tournament won :)

 

Legacy/Vintage/93-94 don't have to be expensive. There are many resources for budget Decks. The budget deck in our 93-94 tournament did very well. (3rd or 2nd?)

Played it a few times with a friend who is really into it. We were allowed to use whatever cards we wanted and I found monsters called 'Slivers' and they were my favorite

I see people playing that game quite often, and really want to get into it and people have taught me the a bit of how to play, but my parents are extremely conservative and call it a satanic game that will corrupt my soul. If I ever got cards and played my parents would take them away and probably send me to a counselor to, "cleanse my soul." Maybe someday.

Jeez, I thought we got over that yeeeears ago.

We even have "devil" as a creature type these days.

I've played on and off for 20+yrs and have never sacrificed a goat or any other creature to my horned master

Ahem </jk>

 

If you leave home college/work then you'll have more ability to play - what about the versions for Steam/Xbox/PS?

I play it but only through the video games, specifically the Duels series. Been playing a lot of Duels Origins since it came out. It is a neat game for those like me that find the physical card game too much of a hassle, but man is that game flawed. Even now it could use tons of refinement.

 

I like to play variations, but my favorite colors are usually blue/black or red/white. I want to make a green/black deck sometime.

I've never played like, seriously before, but at most I've gone to my local card shops on pre-release events and booster draft games so I know I'm walking away with something for my money. If I have to win to walk away with something to merit the 25 dollars I've tossed, then I know I'm jinxing myself!

Though I have amassed a good dresser-full of some two thousand or so cards. I've got a deck built around my Draconequus OC & each "head" of my hydra. Kind of want to do that someday. Play six simultaneous decks against one person, though I am still working out the kinks in that plan as how to make the field even. Perhaps a shared life pool. And maybe a long table with a wheely chair.

So on anything but a competetitive level, I am a good 85% in the know, heh.

Hiho there!

 

Guess I Hijack this thread since I was going to open the same topic myself.

I am playing mostly draft at FNMs, but playing Standard at showdowns (first Red Deck Wins, then Rakdos aggro, soon Rakdos pirates) and having a lot of casual decks (like 20), 2 commander decks (Odric, Daretti) and 1 almost-competitive modern burn deck along some miserable pauper decks.

Anyways, to the points:

- Anyone willing to play online together? I am playing 95% at xmage (free MTGO alternative), I have Magic Duels and I am awaiting Magic arena. Anyone else interested in playing online?
- Anyone here from Germany and playing MTG?

I used to play, but don't anymore. Still have cards to make a deck or two with though, including a solo white deck I used to run and parts of an old red/blue deck.

Yeah I used to play, semi seriously... not anymore though. I still have all of my cards though, but have become more of a collector vs. a hardcore player. And even on the collecting side I have dropped heavily.

Lets have an update.

I did play for a while on Cockatrice, but despite saying "please be patient, im new" most people were, well, "c*cks" :I

Havent tried Xmage, @Bas was on about that to me a while ago.

My local club has drifted away from Standard and I've broken my Legacy and Vintage decks down, I've realised that if i have the option to play Leg/Vin/Old, I'll play Old School :)

Premodern is becoming a "thing" but I'm resisting the temptation to join in

Ill have a look at Arena (think i have beta access available but havent used it)

Else I still should have keys or at least accs leftover.

What is pre-modern? All cards legal before modern? or do you reference to a post-modern format, like Arena Modern or Frontier with less sets than modern?

Isn't Old School ABU only?

Just write here if you got into arena or want to play at xmage, albeit I prefer limited formats, I can still play constructed.

I don't play it, but I'm pretty sure that I have a couple of cards - somewhere in my house.

I still play MTG with my friends, but our decks(and collections) are quite a bit outdated, so i guess you can say i play 'modern'.
most of my cards are from the myrodin/kamigawa era, and half my main deck is in the banlist. I really love deckbuilding and have made many a wacky deck in my time, my favorite color is red,(goblins helped this decision, but i also like it's game style) my latest deck is (Boros)white/red angels for modern, but i made it on a budget so it's not a 3rd turn win or anything. still holds quite well on x-mage though

I played long time ago in high school when revised (3rd edition) came out. Stopped playing after high school and picked it back up in college during the Invasion block up until Mirrodin when our local store closed. Played in some drafts and tournaments on the weekends.
