Fun Magic The Gathering 2013

'cause fuck me...

So, as some of you might be already in the knowing, i was looking at Magic online just to rekindle the old memories... then, a old friend of mine (to whom i gave all my cards to when i stopped playing) heard about it and got super excited, cause he wanted to go back and try it again. For fun, or maybe even step foot in the competitive scene...

Talk goes and comes and now i'm knee deep in Magic cards again...

Hooray me.

7 Years off, and i just jumped right back into M13. Just the frame this beautiful picture, i got some money back my brother had borrowed (and that i had forgot about) and now i'm waiting for about 625 brand new M13 cards to hit my door. While my friend got about 400+ cards coming his away.

So, i'm clueless, rusty as hell (last time around the best strategy i had was Elves for X mana then Fireball to hell and back) and let's see where this goes...

I however DID forget about one of the dark rules of MTG... never go ebay window shopping if you don't have the money for it.

I mean, c'mon... Progenitus?



T'hell am i going to do with that...? Wait hold on a minute...



Oh crap...

Well... i'm certainly back...

Anybody else into the madness?

If you're buying M13 packs, draft it. M13 is a blast to draft. I've drafted it like five times now, and every time it's a blast.

I love core sets for the draft format, mainly.

only recently though, Before M10 drafting a core set was an awkward and painful experience and I never enjoyed it.

YOu picked a pretty good place to come back, M13 is an amazing set, Return to Ravnica will be pretty rad too

It seems pretty interesting though and i do want to try drafting. It kinda makes me feel old though

When i left Equipment cards was just starting to be announced and i was like "Oh this seems like an interesting concept" now i'm back and it's like "Planeswalkers, Foils and Mythicals? WTF is going on?!"

Foils have been about 1 in 7 packs since... Urza's Legacy?

Yeah, i followed the news up to Mirrodin, but back then around here it wasn't all that popular it was quite niche actually, so the last set i recall having cards of was the Odyssey set. I might have seen a foil before but i hardly recall.

I've been reading up a bit though, trying to think of new ways to play. I certainly have enough cards to put together a few decent decks, and i was always fond of Green/Red decks... the only "quirky" deck i had ever putted together was a full Artifact deck.

I didn't even know Magic had a God card. Guess I was wrong to think it didn't. XD

I started playing in high-school but I stopped after a year of playing and getting owned. Regardless of that I still bought decks on occasion. And I just recently got back into the game. Right now I run a White and Black deck centered around angels and demons (kinda). Though I might just play online for the most part.

Dude, it's been four years. I don't think you need to specify that core sets are different now, after four years of them being different.

Plus, if you REALLY wanted to be picky, the core sets have only really been designed for drafting since like M12.

BTW you guys heard of Pauper magic?

A couple of guys i talked to around here said it was hardly even known in the US and abroad.

Pauper Magic is essentially regular Magic but you can only build a deck with Common cards. And it works as a "Sub type" style that you apply to other Game styles like Legacy and Standard.

Thing is, The "scene" here country-wise is quite set apart there ain't much inter connection between players, stores and events. So you have a small pot of people who rush to get the "top cards" for their "Top decks" and you have a bunch of people who can't afford singles and pay cheap for heaps of cards with tons of commons to play around and have fun with.
