Oh man, Magic. I got in around Legends and stopped around Alliances...and now have a whole box of cards that I haven't played in a long time. But when my friends and I were playing, we were playing damn near constantly. I had a rather nice blue and white Stasis deck that I liked annoying people with.

Oh, man I remember that. Isn't that old now?

Man I have a TON of rare cards. I'll sell them cheap if you are interested. I had and still have a white and blue deck that I've never lost yet. I won a tournament in sixth grade and won $100 plus one of those rare Avatar of Angels or something like that.

That game was a blast.

Actually, Magic is still going strong, the Wizards company just came out with a new set called Future Sight a few weeks ago.

I haven't played in a long time. Got in when the Urzas sets were out; I still have my killer white deck. I stopped playing when the changed the look of the cards. I got tired of throwing my deck away every 3 months just to stay in the tournaments.

A buddy of mine has one of those super rare black lotus cards in mint condition. He has been playing for a really long time and he is 24 now. He refuses to sell it. He calls it his investment because the price keeps going up.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But I’m just not the angel you knew.

I stopped playing around the time the Legions set came out. I never got serious about the game but I still keep my green elf deck though. Weak as hell at first, but once you got out enough elves to support each other, you're set.

Man, so long since I played, used to have a pretty good Beasts deck, red and green. I kinda drifted away after elementary school grad, as my friends and I didn't really have the time to play. Sweet game though.

Hell yeah, I had a buddy who had a few of them (not kidding) and did the black lotus first turn kill trick. It was ridiculous.

I also had another friend who had two serra avatars in the same deck that he was using. Yeah, I definitely love some of the older cards... new ones are getting all these weird abilities. I haven't played since high school, but my favorite route to play has to be either red/green or counterspells.

If you ever want a game, I´m always up for an online game via Magic Workstation.

I haven´t played in a few months, been busy with school, so my T2 decks don´t have future sight, and I played a lot of T1.5 and T1.x anyways.

I haven't played in a while. I've got a nice all green beasts deck. If you play it right, you can get some really big nasties up really quick.

Hey guys, I'm interested in starting magic and am unsure what kind of pack I should buy, I've heard 8th core edition but the ones I found on ebay are REALLY high priced.

I thought they were up to 9th Edition Core Sets now >.>

Anyway, yeah, if it's your first time playing, your best bet is the Starter Set of whichever edition is the current core, I think they come with instructional CD-Roms now.

I started playing around Nemesis, but stopped for a while around Mirrodin. Artifact block for the lose :/ Picked it back up somewhere in the Kamigawa cycle though, and my Red/Black deck is still a ton of fun to play.

I'd gladly connect for a match over Magic Workstation, just gotta get a deck built in it ^^

Heheh. You should be able to pick up a starter set at most hobby shops, even the Target down the street from me has them. Once you've got a good handle on the rules and what colors you enjoy playing, grab a preconstructed deck and some boosters and start at making your own deck.

It's also a good idea to pick up Magic Workstation or Apprentice- I don't know how current Apprentice's card list is- and play around with decks on there.

I used to play Magic, and I like it better when I'm playing face to face with someone. I tried playing over the interweb, but didn't like it all that much.

Just my opinion. If Iwere you I would get cards first, a starter kit like daedalin said is quite a good idea.

Yeah, starter kits are alright. For decks, the planar choas decks are actually pretty good. The fungus deck is pretty annoying with some simple changes.

I have some nice cards that I'll let go for cheap if you're interested.

These cards are from the Urza's time period

Sorry, but first I wanna get a feel for the game before buying singles.

That's a fairly good deal, I'd go with it.

Black/Green can be a nasty combination. Card control plus big creatures usually spells doom for most people.

Pokemon!

Getting back on topic... nope. It's crazy how long it has survived though. Trading card games are an addictive but expensive hobby.

Ah, yes; Pokémon! I liked the system more than Magic, although being young and foolish I spend way too much money on it. I still have my cards, although there's not too many places where one can admit that. ;)
