Magic: The Gathering,GO TEAM MS!

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

I'm wondering who here plays? Is there interest/enough players from MS to get a MS clan going?

My name is Sheastrausman.

Yes. Just like playing magic in real life, you have to buy the cards.

Also, the account costs 10$ iirc but they give you like 2 event tickets (which are used as currency, so thats pretty much like getting 2$ right back) and a pack which is like 3 or 4$. So the start up cost isnt that steep. I would suggest you learn how to play magic in real life though before you try to play it/invest money into it online.

AjaxUD. I haven't logged on in probably 3 years, but I've been seriously considering getting back into MtG with one of my good friends.

The competition on MWS is just depressingly bad. Online offers prize supported tournaments, online PTQs, Drafts (with prize support), which is something that MWS STILL has not figured out how to do properly.

There are a ton of reasons.

this isn't about magic online specifically but a good read for anyone jumping in to magic: What I know About Magic: The Gathering.

Hmm, this actually does look cool. Does the $10 startup give you enough cards for a deck?

Not really. I have literally a fuck ton of commons/uncommons that I would be willing to give away for free though, that I've gotten through drafting.

Online misses the best part of Magic: the spectator sport.

I thought he was rolling it though.

That would be a sucky card. "Roll your opponent's life counter. Whatever it comes up with is his current life."

Probably blue.
