if i remember those years correctly i was more worried about the shame my seminoles starter jacket would bring me after danny wuerrfle's gators pounced on them in the orange bowl than anything having to do with those fucking things

I used to play magic back in the mid-nineties, I still have a hundreds and hundreds of those cards in some box around here. I never paid much for them though, because I stole most of them from bookstores. I wonder if that stuff is worth something these days, the oldest cards I have are from Revised Edition or whatever it was called.

haha shivan dragon. back in 1995 my friend's proudest accomplishment was owning 4 shivan dragons. I wonder if those cards are worth anything today.

blue + black deck, my sengir vampires and royal assassins were so so gangster.

i think sometimes i threw in some green too, but only if u could throw all mana down first turn and i would use it solely for my force of nature

8/8

deej, Tuesday, 23 October 2007 22:34 (eight years ago) Permalink

yeah i kept that shivan solely because it was worth money since i played green/white almost exclusively, i shoulda sold it off

max, Tuesday, 23 October 2007 22:42 (eight years ago) Permalink

I saw this stuff mostly when I was in college - 94 - 98. I was too busy playing (then) horrible blues rock, drinking and trying to get laid. Trying being the WAY operative word there.

I sold a revised "Fork" for about 50 pounds.

Okay guys how similar is Pokemon the card game to Magic: the Gathering? Bcz I am getting stupidly good @ Pokemon (which did eat up all my spare $$$ this summer...sheesh Abbott).

Y'all heard about The Eye of Judgment?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bhlq_GhYGsM
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eye_of_Judgment

It's a Magic type game for PS3 that uses real cards and a camera, just came out. The camera scans the cards as you put them into play and then the monsters on the cards battle it out on your TV. The game keeps track of all the stats and shit too, of course. I haven't played it but it's getting decent reviews.

marmotwolof, Wednesday, 24 October 2007 01:27 (eight years ago) Permalink

I probably spent twenty bucks on it total, maybe thirty. It was one summer, a fun thing, a moment in time, a nice little cultural artifact.

This is me w/ M:TG btw, but I've also done the "use Portal decks and ignore most of the rules" thing.

marmotwolof, Wednesday, 24 October 2007 01:31 (eight years ago) Permalink

I found a coffee table on the streets of Madison once whose top was a glass plate covering a tiling of just a single magic card. I don't recall what it was, but it must have been the "unwanted" card.

libcrypt, Wednesday, 24 October 2007 02:12 (eight years ago) Permalink

there was originally some card that involved ripping one of your opponents cards that got "banned" under the sanctioned rules...have no idea what it was called.

I had a mox sapphire! and sold basically everything i had owned at some point in '98 (when i was 19) probably for like 450 on ebay...

spent several hours on saturday night playing Magic with ian and was pretty consistently beaten by his blue & black deck.

elmo argonaut, Monday, 29 October 2007 14:04 (eight years ago) Permalink

people used to call blue and black decks "bruise" decks.

Ronan, Monday, 29 October 2007 14:16 (eight years ago) Permalink

apparently people play creatures in type 2 nowadays? I am sort of suspicious of this, it's not pokemon. I wish I hadn't lost all my cards.

Gravel Puzzleworth, Monday, 29 October 2007 14:29 (eight years ago) Permalink

i am so mad i couldn't find my old white/green deck when i was home this weekend.

ian, Monday, 29 October 2007 16:49 (eight years ago) Permalink

my favorite is the red & white deck.

red & white is a hard deck to play!

max, Monday, 29 October 2007 16:54 (eight years ago) Permalink

there were good all red or all green decks around the time the "mirages" (was that its name) edition of cards came out.

Ronan, Monday, 29 October 2007 18:22 (eight years ago) Permalink

Lightweights. I suspect Gravel may be hardcore, if he's referring to the fact that Morphling used to be the only playable creature.

Creatures are for Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh. Magic is a game of technique.

s. morris, Monday, 29 October 2007 19:21 (eight years ago) Permalink

I can only say all this after spending way too much time sniping cards on eBay in order to play something like 3 times in the last year.

The fortunate thing is that Magic card prices seem to be way more stable than the dollar, so that's money in the bank folks.

s. morris, Monday, 29 October 2007 19:23 (eight years ago) Permalink

I did Magic waaay early on. By the time I was too cool for it I gave everything to some neighborhood kid, if only I had sold it for $$$ ;_;

Jordan, Monday, 29 October 2007 19:25 (eight years ago) Permalink

Was not at all impressed by Wizards Of The Coast's headquarters. It's like a mile from Ikea in Renton and looks like any other corporate headquarters. I at least expected animatronic dragons or constant fireworks displays or something other than reflective glass and a fucking fountain.

deej, Monday, 29 October 2007 19:35 (eight years ago) Permalink

type I was all about DUAL LANDS right?
my best deck was mostly blue, counterspells, those djinns that only cost 3 that were misprinted green; then red & white & green sprinkled in also...black was fairly worthless.
i miss my magic cards!@!!

johnny crunch, Monday, 29 October 2007 19:59 (eight years ago) Permalink

black can be great if you play it right, especially with red or blue!

max, Monday, 29 October 2007 20:00 (eight years ago) Permalink

i had a black/red deck for a long time but all my best cards were green/white so i tended to stick to that

Now we're talking. Your mox sapphire alone would go for like $400 on eBay.

i know! damn my 19 yr old self!!

cant remember what else was in it. maybe JUGGERNAUTS? the (actual) green djinn that was 4/5 and only cost 4 to cast? dunno...

draft leagues coming early sept. 3 rounds of games but not within the draft pod, but matchmaking at same record only. replacing swiss queues entirely, and only 8-4s remain as traditional in-pod tournaments. no change to entry and prizes.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 16:14 (six days ago) Permalink

love draft leagues, love the league leaderboards

this is prob my favorite feature add since before V4 release

ciderpress, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 16:39 (six days ago) Permalink

i've very much got my mtg spark back in the past month or 2, if kaladesh is any good at all i will draft the he** out of it

ciderpress, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 16:47 (six days ago) Permalink

i made the decision during SOI to switch from 8-4s back to swiss and was v pleased by the addition of the current format 6-2-2-2s recently so my first reaction to the news was to be a bit bummed to be losing the "pure" experience for swiss but realizing that i have played sealed league more than draft this format because it has been hard to get the necessary block of time i think i should and will be glad about this development.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 16:59 (six days ago) Permalink

the change definitely makes sense in terms of helping people manage their time better without locking them into multi-hour blocks of game time, but it is a little weird to me to play against people outside of the original pod, it will take some getting used to.

Al Moon Faced Poon (Moodles), Wednesday, 24 August 2016 17:02 (six days ago) Permalink

Absolutely. I love drafting but I'm kind of a quick player and often times I'd finish a match in 15 minutes and have to wait nearly 40 minutes for the next round to start. It's frustrating to me since I have a kid now and if I'm playing it's usually at like 9:30-10 PM, so if there's just one slow guy in the pod I might not make it to bed until 12:30. Playing decks outside the pod is kinda weird but I doubt I'll even notice, if anything it just means I don't have to defensive draft

frogbs, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 18:17 (six days ago) Permalink

defensive drafting is bad anyway unless there's nothing in the pack in your colors at all

ciderpress, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 18:46 (six days ago) Permalink

eh I'll take a good offcolor uncommon vs. something that likely won't make my deck anyway, depending on the set of course. some sets like Origins had so many garbage commons that you'd struggle to get to 23.

frogbs, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 18:52 (six days ago) Permalink

i caught an episode of limited resources with chris fennell guesting a while back and that was the only time i can remember a pro player arguing in favour of proactively hatedrafting. he was saying as the draft goes on you have to realize there are certain cards your deck can never beat and you have to take them out of the game. the numbers go so hard against that though, it really doesn't make any sense. even so, however ill advised it might be, losing that element of the draft experience and that part of strategy is an actual cost. tracking the cards you pass so you know what your opponents might have is i think of a much smaller benefit, and more dubious, than ppl make out but again that is still a real thing. i'm just hoping stuff like this seems more important than it actually plays out.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 18:55 (six days ago) Permalink

yeah I mean when most people think of hatedrafting they think of first-picking a bomb rare they can't play in Pack 3 so no one else can get it, IMO that's pretty dumb, but if you're in say Pack 3 Pick 4 and you've got 20 playables I'm okay just picking the best card if there's nothing I want, knowing if nothing else there's a ton of deck filler coming my way

frogbs, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 19:00 (six days ago) Permalink

i tend to prefer to build up an on-colour sideboard even if i am good for my main playables. more often than you might think you can board in even some usually pretty bad cards to give you an edge in a specific match up.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 19:08 (six days ago) Permalink

yeah i have won lots of limited games via sideboarding in of cards that i picked up late in packs. if your opponent's deck is slow, bring in some of those mediocre draw spells or mind rots and crush them with card advantage. if they're trying to swarm you out with 2-drops, your 1/1 for 1 might be live and better than a decent 5-drop

ciderpress, Wednesday, 24 August 2016 20:05 (six days ago) Permalink

I sometimes hate-draft later picks that are extremely good against my deck, e.g. Dual Shot if I'm playing lots of 1-toughness guys, over marginally useful cards for my own deck. But usually I prefer to add to my sideboard, like you guys are saying
