So guys, theres this game, you may of heard about it, its call
Magic-Logo.jpg

Basically its a really cool card game where you spend all your money and keep spending it for forever. The new core set is coming out in a few days. Isn't that cool?

Lets talk about how awesome our decks are. Personally my friends and I don't play by Type 2 rules (basically the current set, base set, and previous set are only the only ones you can use) so we have crazy broken decks with mixes of old cards and new.

So come on gang, lets gather, with Magic.

Everyone loves new sets! Scars of Mirrodin is set to come out the firs of October, and while the majority of the spoilers are coming down in about a week or 2, we have a couple. I get all my info at Gathering Magic.

    i played this game in high school

    “Hic non defectus est, sed cattus minxit desuper nocte quadam. Confundatur pessimus cattus qui minxit super librum istum in nocte Daventrie, et consimiliter omnes alii propter illum. Et cavendum valde ne permittantur libri aperti per noctem ubi cattie venire possunt.”

    Magic would be pretty cool if there weren't so many grognards around it and if it didn't cost more than Games Workshop stuff.

    I have never played, but several of my friends used to be pretty good at it.

    I am always really bad at TCGs, which is why the raid decks for the WoW TCG are awesome. You can just be the boss and kill your friends!

    They need a viable counter for bleed decks. Like an artifact that lets you re-shuffle your graveyard into your library and slap anyone that plays blue.

    Someone was going a couple big boxes of cards away at work yesterday, so I took them.

    I haven't gone through them yet.

    I got into Magic through friends. They got me a Portal deck back in like 98 or 99. But I was playing Pokemon card game back then, and magic was too complicated for my child brain.

    Then my freshman year of college all the guys in my dorm played it and I spent way too much money on Magic cards. Now I'm getting back into it through guys I work with.

    Its a really fun game.

    Blue is my most hated color. I have a Red/Blue deck that I like to play but its the only one. Everyone I know who plays a ton of Blue is kind of a douche.

    I played a zombie deck in middle school. It was fucking massive and horrible as shit, but it got the job done. Always ended play with like 20 goddamn zombies on the field.

    I had a blue and red deck that I called my Firewater deck.

    It held true to its name.

    When I used it I lost everything.

    My friends and I are going camping in a few weeks. I think I might bring my cards since its not suppose to rain. If my cards got destroyed due to wetness....I think I would die.

    My Red/Blue deck is based on The Izzet League from Guildpact. It has a lot of cool instant damage cards and cycling, but the key is their Dragon guy who deals a damage every time you draw a card.

    "Oh hey, a 1 mana card that lets me draw a card and I use cycling (1) to cast it 9 more times. I draw 9 cards and you take 9 damage."

    I have this for Xbox 360. It's not bad.

    I could never do the card game because I'm insane with collecting things and min/maxing decks, and I would have gone broke.

    I played Pokemon WHILE I played Magic some days.

    I remember I was at Gary in Pokemon Blue using a Gameboy Color that didn't lock the carts in and I wouldn't take my turn until I beat him. My "buddy" pulled my game out of the machine and it wiped my progress and my pokemons.

    From that day on I stopped playing both of those games, grew a beard and impregnated a teacher.

    That or I cried like a bitch.

    (I really did grow a kick ass beard though.)

    Ha I was thinking about making this thread

    Anyways yeah I currently have 3 Standard (Type II) decks and one deck for casual multiplayer games

    Best standard deck is my mono green beatdown deck. Overrun, Beastmaster Ascension, and Eldrazi Monument combined with lots of green token generating creatures. Went undefeated last time I ran it at my local standard tournament. I think it's the best deck out of all of my friends decks. More than 50% against my friends fairly good Red Deck Wins. I haven't play tested enough against my friends very good vampire deck, but with my first build of the deck it was 50% exactly. Only played against it once with my current build though.

    Will be going to a pre-release this weekend because fuck yeah Suntitan looks awesome.
