Not sure if i should grab a fatpack of innistrad or another commander precon to mess with. I'm leaning towards the fatpack. Also, for the same price I could get the last 4-5 cards for my niv-mizzet EDH.

 

Anyway, I know at least some of you play mtg as well. Can we get a general discussion thread going?

Oh my...I used to have soooo many decks. Blue/green, Red/black, White/blue.

 

I loved my black/red deck the most though.

 

What card types do you prefer?

 

My Green/Blue deck was more of my competition deck I guess you could say.

Favorite card type? Lol I like and use them all. Current decks I'm running are:

 

Mono red goblins w/ plenty of artifacts

Mono white equipment

Niv Mizzet EDH, basically just blue/red control with a heavy emphasis on card draw

Mimeoplasm EDH, pretty standard graveyard shenanigans

Ruhan EDH, aggro-control. Basically, I either take control of all your big creatures or prevent them doing anything, then kill you with mine.

And various other decks in different states of construction, most aren't playable yet, other are, but suck horribly lol

 

I want to build a token EDH deck around Ghave, but I also want more innistrad, since I only have the few packs i got from the prerelease.

Still do!

Which reminds me! I need to work on some of my decks!

I usually go with Green solo or green with something else and if I just want to win I use my Sliver Deck. :D

I haven't played in ages, but I remember that my green/blue deck consisted of mostly blue for walls and defensive stuff as green was what I used for offence.

 

My favorite green monsters had regenerate...I had some sort of a worm that had it. It was decent, I think a 4/6 =/. One of my strongest creatures was a behemoth of some kind. Giving it artifacts made it a tough piece of work to deal with.

I'll never forget a game where I had a handful of instants and my cousin decided to let my trampling 4/4 through. All of a sudden it was a 21/21. The look on his face was priceless! :D

I've done something similar with a 2 headed dragon card...It was red, just can't remember its's name...that thing was a monster. My friend banned me from that dragon whenever we played XD.

That was one of my last victories as both my cousins that I play with started to buy more and more single cards and made ridiculously powerfull decks. In Magic sadly money can solve all your problems. :mellow:

Not always. If you're good, then money does help a lot, but a skilled deck builder and player with mediocre cards can often beat someone less skilled with good cards. I've done it many a time.

It's all about the planning and preparation than just sheer power.

I've always wanted to give this game a try. I read one of the MtG books once and it was pretty cool despite the fact that I knew none of it's lore.

I never really got into Magic myself though I've always wanted to, it always seemed like it'd be pretty fun to play and the monsters are pretty cool.

 

Instead I spent my youth playing Yu-Gi-Oh! for a card game since it was a lot easier to me. :P

 

That and there used to be tons of kids at school that'd have Yu-Gi-Oh! duels on the lunchroom tables all the time. Ahh those were the days.

Trust me if you compared my decks to theirs you'd see that they have a strong advantage and the only way they'd loose is if they were only getting lands. I'm talking about dropping about $60 per deck here filled with rares and maxed out on 4 of some of those cards.

I have to find my cards some day...I had a considerable decent collection of rare cards that added value and worth to the entire collection.

Is my most memorable card, right beside my Wurm.

The Wurm served me well so many times as did the dragon.

Yeah, I haven't. I consider about 2 months a while. I may of over-exaggerated a bit with ages, but it felt like forever. As time went on I played less and less, till I just stopped. About the time I got serious into WoW. Edited by Hayze

Oh okay.

 

Well, that went well. Bought a fatpack of innistrad and pulled a Lilliana of the veil, a snapcaster Mage, and an Olivia voldaren, which i sold to the shop for ~$32, making the fatpack cost about $3. So then I used that money to buy another 4 packs of innistrad and 5 of m12. Didn't open anything of major value in those, but some guy traded me a few hymn to tourach for some some of my better commons and uncommons, and I traded a bloodgift demon for a few cards for my ruhan EDH :D

I love it, I had quite a few cards, but time and the lack of a partner to play against made me loose them. I wonder if the game on steam is any good.

4 lighting axes,4 lava spikes,4 lighning bolts,3quenchable fires,4 reverberates,3 flame javelins,3 rift bolts,3 ember haulers,3 brow beats,3 searing blazes,3 goblin fireslingers,3 cinder pyromancers, and 21 mounains
