>We tried to revive it this year but the school we go to now has serious players

Yeah, Magic is a game that completely falls apart when people start to take it seriously. It quickly becomes that only certain cards in certain types of decks have a chance of winning, and often in very boring, cheepo, lucky-draw fashion.

Casual play is ok, but is still too expensive.

Lots of fun if played with somewhat random decks but totally sux if anyone's taking it seriously. The whole suspended reality thing hits me pretty hard so I really get into the cards.

I'm still into the casual play aspect and mostly out of competitive play. Expensiveness of it all = clearly dud though.

There was a pretty funny article in Salon a couple years ago about the early days at Wizards of the Coast, which apparently resembled a geek version of Fellini's Satiricon, before the company went and sold out to THE MAN.

Justyn Dillingham (Justyn Dillingham), Wednesday, 22 January 2003 07:34 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

ok here goes.

if you're going to play magic, you MUST play by tournament rules. you needn't bother playing if there are no limits placed on the composition of the deck. wizards of the coast probably still publishes its "restricted/banned" card list as well. check it out.

when i was about 15 to 16 i played in magic tournaments EVERY sunday, and played recreationally with friends most evenings. yes, you could say that it was a very signifigant part of that time in my very sad teenaged life. at one point in the remote northern alberta town of 35,000 i grew up in there were three comic shops that all pushed magic quite heavily and at least a couple more places where the cards were available. some people took it VERY seriously.

i won't argue that magic is a tremendous cash sucker, and ultimately it taught me nothing about anything (there is little about the game that transfers to other pursuits) but there is a tremendous beauty to the inner workings of the game. it's not just about how much money you spend on it. in tournament settings, i was able to consistently trounce educated adult men with high-paying jobs (engineers, systems analysts) simply by spending a lot of time evaluating how the cards in my deck worked together. quite often the answer is not an "expensive" card but four cheap, nasty ones.

if you're going to play magic, you MUST play by tournament rules.

Why? I mean, in a tournament of course you do, but what about those of us who are, err, "casual players" as it were and just want a nice game to waste some time with as opposed to a weapon to "consistently trounce educated adult men with high-paying jobs"?

Daniel_Rf (Daniel_Rf), Wednesday, 22 January 2003 23:52 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

Tournament rules are for people who actually know all the instant-kill power card combinations. And tournament rules are constantly changing because people figure out new ones.

If we judge a game by its players, and I judge this by the few people I've ever met or seen who play it, it's as dud as it comes. (This is not meant to comment on the people here, none of whom I have met.)

Martin Skidmore (Martin Skidmore), Thursday, 23 January 2003 18:24 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

I used to play... PROFESSIONALLY. How sad is that? You can make good money at it to be honest. The saddest thing most times are people who play it. It's 90-95% male, they're all super homophobes too. I used to wear t-shirts that implied I was gay just to mess with the competition.. and to get pictures of me in em in Magic publications (yes, there are a few). I enjoyed the game and the rules, and I met some good people along the way. The best part about Magic players is that they are willing to play almost anything.. so once you get fed up with Magic (which everyone does), they will try any other activity or game (Set, Settlers of Cataan), and jump on it.

I'm going to be branded a geek now.. aren't I?

Let's make that a little clearer... heh.

A lot of Magic players are homophobic (in my experience) and in order to throw them off of their game, I would wear a shirt that symbolized gay pride.

What's really scary is that I'm thinking about playing in a sealed deck PTQ in a couple of weeks just to see if I can still compete after not playing for years.

Dud as hell. When I was 12 or 13 or so I went with my friend (who was into Magic cards at the time) to a Magic the Gathering "tournament" being held at the local Barnes & Noble. While my friend was playing Magic with someone, I walked around watching the others in attendance. At one table this guy playing said something like "I'm playing the Wall of Flame card". This other guy at the table said, "I'm gonna play the Wall of Pubic Hair card, hehehehhehe" in this horribly nasal and stereotypically nerdy voice. That was when I realized that there were people far nerdier than I could ever be.

The game itself = Classic: it will be around for years to come, probably our nerdier kids will be into it or some incarnation of it.

The "90-95% super homophobe" players mentioned above = DUD. If I was rich (xpost it's expensive xpost) I'd probably play Magic Online, and not have to see the fat guys with "horribly nasal and stereotypically nerdy voices" that unfortunately define the game.

idk I think if you include MTGO then Top is way more obnoxious, it pretty much singlehandedly adds 5+ extra minutes to the match, can't think of another card like that offhand

personally I find Jace TMS the most miserable card to play against, I was so happy when that got banned

frogbs, Tuesday, 25 April 2017 18:00 (four weeks ago) Permalink

top in cube is particularly obnoxious. overall if my opponent is playing top i figure i am getting like +5% win equity at the cost of sitting through 10 minutes additional pointless fucking around time.

Roberto Spiralli, Tuesday, 25 April 2017 18:11 (four weeks ago) Permalink

top can be strong in cube in decks that look more or less like legacy miracles (lotta fetches, maybe some actual miracles)

the card is obviously very poorly designed, for sure. it's funny can any number of small tweaks (add a mana here or there, make the draw effect sorcery speed, etc.) would have made it a totally fine card, but in the end it's just a little bit too efficient.

iatee, Tuesday, 25 April 2017 18:30 (four weeks ago) Permalink

if you had to tap to do the Sylvan Library ability that would help too. a lot of my frustrations with the card had to do with the fact that I could never kill it. plus I remember a lot of "upkeep Top, crack fetch, Top again" where people would spend 2 full minutes before getting to their main phase.

frogbs, Tuesday, 25 April 2017 18:32 (four weeks ago) Permalink

my one amonkhet discovery so far is that, because all of the cycling synergy stuff triggers off discard, the 1U sometime looter guy can potentially be strong in that archetype. effectively makes any non-creature spells you cast potentially count as a cycle, which could be very important for critical mass. just at common, that guy into the 2/3 sentinels that pump on discard is a p nice start

Roberto Spiralli, Tuesday, 25 April 2017 19:09 (four weeks ago) Permalink

I did one draft last night and opened the stupid dragon + lili so I 'did okay' but the one deck that scared me was a mono-cycling deck that really went off one game. I guess you try and dive into that deck if you open a powerful enabler early? I wonder how fringe it's gonna be.

iatee, Tuesday, 25 April 2017 19:12 (four weeks ago) Permalink

drake haven is actually unbeatable unless you have one of the two enchantment removals in the set, both of which have cycling so the drake haven drafter is gonna cut them from other people if they're smart (they're also both white so if you're not playing that color then you're just screwed from the start)

ciderpress, Tuesday, 25 April 2017 19:24 (four weeks ago) Permalink

That card is bonkers, yes. It basically reads "1U: drake" in the right deck. I Lay Claimed it because my opponent was going off, and still lost just to the two drakes he/she had already made

Vinnie, Wednesday, 26 April 2017 01:17 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i just had an opponent play it vs me and my immediate reaction was 'oh fuck i'm dead' and then they made a single drake with it over 3 turns and i was like 'oh phew they drew the wrong part of their deck to use it' and then they played sandwurm convergence and i died. quite the emotional rollercoaster

Do you buy their explanation? I think people are generally happy enough that they'll look past or forget about the clumsy way it was handled.

ciderpress, Thursday, 27 April 2017 01:33 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i don't really buy the stated explanation, i think 2 days of mtgo data is not enough to base a decision on. i think they were planning to hit it in the next one in 6 weeks to be consistent with the previous B&R message about waiting until after PT Amonkhet, but the community pressure plus fear of a stagnant PT forced their hand.

ciderpress, Sunday, 30 April 2017 00:24 (three weeks ago) Permalink

This is my favourite sealed format I think I've ever played - you can do so many different things across all five colours and they all seem to work really well. The number of unbeatable cards is really small - like Rhonas, Glorybringer, Samut, Liliana, maybe the R/W gods or the Sphinx, but that's about it - nothing at rare.

Gravel Puzzleworth, Sunday, 30 April 2017 00:32 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i haven't tried sealed yet, i got annoyed at that format because there was a long string of sets where BUG were way better than R and W in sealed and it got boring always playing the same colors

ciderpress, Sunday, 30 April 2017 01:00 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I've had little success in Sealed so far but lots of close, fun matches. The number one thing that bugs me is the lack of enchantment removal, cause there are some game winning enchantments, but I did manage to outrace the black curse one match, which was thrilling. Glorybringer also should've been mythic, I have yet to beat that card

Vinnie, Sunday, 30 April 2017 01:35 (three weeks ago) Permalink

yeah idk why that one is the rare and the double combat step one is the mythic

ciderpress, Sunday, 30 April 2017 01:43 (three weeks ago) Permalink

complexity maybe? idk. i've had glorybringer one time and the only time i drew it it got cloned and then killed. terrible card.

i'm winding up super grindy almost every draft, probably i ought to correct for some biases. as far as enchantment removal goes, i was in a very control-y game with drake haven vs an opp whose way to win the game was convergence, also happening to nerf my win con, and i was able to win by using the griptide/timetwister card to get rid of it for long enough. felt almost like cube.

earlier today i had someone plague wind me by casting blazing volley 4 times in one turn.

Roberto Spiralli, Sunday, 30 April 2017 02:32 (three weeks ago) Permalink

4 times? how did that happen?

rares and mythics have the same level of complexity I think - it's more the uh epicness that distinguishes them. or something. I don't know anymore. on paper, the double combat step guys seems very powerful, maybe even mythic level powerful, but no cards with that effect have been playable in constructed... ever? I'm predisposed to be disappointed by double combat step cards

Vinnie, Sunday, 30 April 2017 04:42 (three weeks ago) Permalink

t I did manage to outrace the black curse one match

Yeah I can't evaluate that card at all - I've faced it a lot on t2, where it's like "drain 7" - which is a good card in a format that can be race-y at times, but I also don't see the games where it's stuck in their hands being embarrassing, so... I don't think it's a for-sure maindeckable card but I could be totally wrong.

Gravel Puzzleworth, Sunday, 30 April 2017 12:22 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i think he meant the 7 mana curse.

i experimented with the 2 mana curse after 1st picking the cycle drain 2 enchantment. i had enough early good blockers and interaction to make board stalls likely, and if you can get to mid game alive and have a couple of those on the battlefield it's a real thing. my win cons were drain and a couple big fliers, i don't know if i would consider it outside of exactly that kind of shell. in the game i was referencing, i was in a long stall vs a guy playing a bunch of RW dorks and we both had a pretty full hand - i had a bunch of cyclers and had decided to wait to draw the enchantment as it didn't seem like there was much urgency, and i assumed he had little creatures he wasn't playing because of the couple of curses i had down. but no, he was collecting his blazing volleys until he had all 4... i still won tho!

Roberto Spiralli, Sunday, 30 April 2017 12:34 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah I meant Cruel Reality, the sac a creature or planeswalker every turn. yeah I don't think the drain curse is very good

Vinnie, Sunday, 30 April 2017 12:34 (three weeks ago) Permalink

xp lol I am not surprised that you beat a person with 4 Blazing Volley in their deck

Vinnie, Sunday, 30 April 2017 12:36 (three weeks ago) Permalink

yeah but of course i happened to play that guy when it was actually reasonable tech against me! who knows what he thought he was doing otherwise. and it was g1 too.

the other time i built around the drain 2 enchantment i neglected to included the additional win support. i had a few big ground creatures - the 4 drop that gets indestructible, a couple of the 5 drop black dude that gets a boost, the blue 6 serpent - but if you don't get those down pretty early, later on it's hard to break a stall with them. every single game i decked with me at 30 life at opp at 4.

xp aurelia the warleader was played in standard a bit - the double combat phase effect really needs to be on a haste creature to be effective.

ciderpress, Sunday, 30 April 2017 17:19 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i think i now have gust walker and hooded brawler as my highest priority commons in draft, alongside magma spray. the drawback on the pacifism is surprisingly massive in this format - it doesn't actually answer a lot of the good cards and even when it does it just gives the green and black creatures a spot to dump their counters and come out bigger.

ciderpress, Monday, 1 May 2017 18:01 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i like the pacifism a lot. those downsides are valid in ordinary paced games but having a simple answer to a 4 power 2 drop or 5 power 3 drop is huge, enough to offset the downsides imo.

ppl seem to be taking hooded brawler highly now, i never see it anymore past like pick 4. green commons being a bit lackluster outside of the cartouche is probably contributing too.

ciderpress, Saturday, 20 May 2017 02:51 (three days ago) Permalink

objectively i think i would agree but personally i don't enjoy it and i haven't been playing it. it's a forgiving environment for high variance strategies, actually i would say welcoming more than forgiving, and while i think every good limited format should allow the dream of going all in on some bullshit, that shouldn't be tier 1. you have to be open to drafting decks where you can just look at your top 10 cards instead of playing the game, and that's not fun for me.

have to admit i only played a couple sealeds right at the release so although it seemed like 'who's got the bombs' i can't give that initial impression too much weight. might give sealed another shot actually. if only to keep me from looking at constructed decks...

Roberto Spiralli, Saturday, 20 May 2017 14:21 (three days ago) Permalink
