Planeswalkers Ruined Magic
I hate Planeswalkers. I've been playing Magic since the day Arabian Nights came out, and always loved the game... up until they came out with Planewalkers which completely broken and ruined the game.

I tell people up front. "If you play a plansewalker, I will just concede the game." Because I will not play with or against planeswalkers. They completely ruin the game and break all the rules of Magic.

You have to declare when you attack either you are attacking the player or his planeswalker... You can't target him because he's neither a player nor a creater but you can redirect damage to him from a player... it's all such a load of crap. I hate how their's a book of special rules just for the planeswalkers. It's such a mess.

They really wish they would ban Planeswalkers from the game entirely. Planeswalkers completely ruined Magic for me.

Just joined this community... was wondering what color/land/mana combinations do you guys like the best in a deck? Obviously it depends on what your strategy is during a particular match, but overall what colors best suit you, and why? I like to hear other's opinions! Thanks.

Rotating a Blue/White Standard Deck
Hello, all.  I'm making this post because I'm looking for some advice on how to update this Standard-format White/Blue deck for the upcoming set rotation.  While it is Standard format, and the most developed of my decks, I mostly use it in games at my local card shop's casual nights on Thursdays.  The shop recently started holding Friday Night Magic as well.  I used this deck at their first one, where it went 2-1.

Decklist and random thoughts under the cut...Collapse )

Type 2 deck recipie request
I'm gonna get back into playing FNM at the local comic book store again, but my last two decks have like a month left to live until the new expansion comes out.

I have no preference to colour or strategy as long as you think it's good.

I created the Game Variant: Two Headed Giant (and received no credit for it)
(( Crossposted ))

I've always loved game mechanics.  I love thinking of new games to play and the process of creating them. 

Back in the 90's I played Magic.  And I thought of a new game variant that I wrote up and played with my friends.

The game variant was called "Two-Headed Giant."

I liked the game, so I went online and I published my game variant to multiple Magic forums, websites, and even to the Mtg group on livejournal.   That was during the 90's.

Now, today, this morning, I'm reading the newest rulebook for Magic the Gathering and notice there's a Game Variant  section of the rules, and there printed in the rule book is my Game Variant "Two-Headed Giant."   And it's almost word for word exactly the way I wrote it.   Players start with 30 life.  Players on the same team share turns and phases.  On and on, exactly the way I created it.

So they published my idea, which I had already published on the internet a decade ago.  And yet, they gave me no credit for it. 

I would have liked to have just gotten a credit for the game which I created.

(( Now I'm gonna have to go through archive.org and see if I can find all the original publications I did when I originally created this game variant. ))

Hey there!
I figured I would join the community over, just to keep up to date on what's going in the World of Magic The Gathering. I was a pretty active player in college but since that time I only get my fix from MtG on Xbox. Anyone here play Duals of The Planeswalkers?

Black/Green Casual Play Relentless Rats Decklist
So I thought I'd share this deck with everyone. I've had this deck for a while and have been using it in casual one-on-one and casual multiplayer. It's never lost a game.

69 Cards in TotalCollapse )

Suggestions for improvement are welcomed! I was talking to this guy at my local card store's Dark Ascension pre-release event and I was telling him about this deck. He said he had a friend who ran with a similar deck in their casual play. The guy I was talking with said he had tried lots of ways to counter his friend's deck, but was only able to come up with a deck that used Sever the Bloodline as it's win condition that worked. I think I'm intrigued and will trying to figure out a counter for my deck that my boyfriend can use against this deck with our one-on-one plays.
