Any M:TG players? Come share your decks!
 
I know there's a couple people who play magic: the gathering here!
I'd love to hear from ya guys! I could talk about magic and my decks for HOURS! haha :D

I've currently got 3 decks built...well 4...but the 4th is just a jank deck built of spare commons and uncommons I threw together for the heck of it! lol

I have a decent modern B/G Melira Pod deck, a nice mono white commander deck, and a super cheap budget u/w heroic STD deck.

Feel free to ask me any questions about the decks, or to make some suggestions!
The Standard U/W heroic deck is net decked...but my modern deck is just about all me. It started life as a per-constructed event deck, and has evolved from a relatively budget kitchen table casual deck...into the monster below. And my white commander deck I've done a TON of work on. It started as a 2014 commander structure deck...and I've been tweaking it slowly over time.

I have nephews who play this. I played dungeons and dragons when I was younger,..had magic been around, I probably would have done that.

Magic- The Gathering.

It's a deck-building card game. I've never played, but it looks interesting.

My major hangup with it is that -as I understand it- there's a card collecting aspect to the decks, with some very expensive special cards.

I have a bug to collect and I'm a completist, so I'd have some serious money and time sink issues if I did start playing.

Sounds suicide - inducingly boring.

First person shooter anyone?

Yeah :(...the game can be VERY expensive to get into...especially if you want to be competitive.

In this game there's lots of cards that are similar to each other. They do similar things. But usually amongst those similar cards there's 1 that is considered the best...and that one...the best of the group...can be extremely expensive. But if you want to be as competitive as you can be and you plan on playing in tournaments...you're really going to want all the best cards in your deck.
Decks in this game can hit $1,000 pretty easy (for 60 cards). I've spent about $650'ish on my first deck I posted.

The 2 Noble Hierarchs I'm running alone costed me $130 ($65 each). There's other cards that do very similar things as those cards I could've used that cost just pennies...but the Noble Hierarch is just the 'best'...so I had to pay a premium to run them in my deck.

To me it's SO not boring! It's super intense and takes a TON of thinking...and I freaking LOVE building decks! I'll spend literally dozens of hours brewing up my decks on paper before I begin to buy the cards for them. Both of the first 2 decks I've posted have gone through at least a dozen iterations before arriving to where they are now...and they'll still change and evolve further in the future.

I freaking love this game. It's been one of my absolute favorite things in life for many years lol.

Re: Any M:TG players? Come share your decks!
 
They came out with a brand new set of new cards recently...and so I went to a midnight tournament last night to play with the new cards. Was a TON of fun!

You can buy these cards in what they call a 'booster pack'. In a nutshell, a booster includes 15 random cards.
In the tournament I played last night, we were given 6 of these packs...and we all opened our 6 boosters, then we had to build 40 card decks out of the cards we opened.

lol I was SO sad! Everyone was opening all these amazing card and rare cards left and right...I wasn't! /cry! Nothing! :( Just nothing worth money at all.
Lucky I was able to piece together a decently playable deck though out of my pile (ABZAN OR GTFO! :giggle:).

There was 3 rounds.
Round 1 I went against this guy who I LOVE. lol...he's hard to explain...but he's a very quiet and very very polite guy...SUPER nice. I just love playing against this guy cause he's just so nice! lol...he got into the game cause his daughter was into it, so he thought he'd learn for her sake...turns out he's DAMN good at this game! He's one of the only guys who's consistently able to defeat me!
In fact...I've yet to win a game vs him! haha...but it's funny, cause I so don't mind losing to him! If there's one person I'm happy to lose against...it's this guy! And he's always so damned gracious about his wins!
And yep...he defeated me 2 games in a row last night! :D Each round we play best out of 3 vs. a random opponent.
It's not that he crushed me...I put in a ton of fight...it's just his deck just straight up had more bombs than mine did.

But...then in the final 2 rounds, I went undefeated. I'm not trying to brag...but I do like winning! :p

Ended up in 3rd place, which was nice...won a few extra booster packs, and I FINALLY pulled a decent card out of one of the packs I won. A card I've been wanting...so that made my night! :D

There's a few more of these events taking place at the shop this weekend...think I'm going to try and attend at least one more. It's SO much fun building decks from scratch like that! :)

But man...I can't keep on with this game like this. Starting to really feel quite burnt out from it!
