So, I'm back in MI, chilling in my old room, and I happen upon a book on my bookshelf. Turns out it's a M:TG book, and it's sitting right next to another M:TG book.

This is decent since they're two books I haven't obtained yet (I should have about two-thirds of that crazy series waiting for me when I get back to MA). What's better... sandwiched between them is about half my old deck from 8th grade (when I moved from NJ to MI and Magic was BIG... friends I met got me into it).

Here's my real question: why aren't we playing M:TG right now?

I think my deck is in my apartment..

I ordered all the anthologies, the miscellaneous books (the stuff from 95-03 not from expansion blocks), and the first three series(es).

The stuff I have is all front-loaded... that is to say that I've got the anthologies, the first ten non-block books, and most of the blocks (missing a book here and there) up to the time spiral cycle.

When I get back, I'm ready to go.

Seriously... why aren't we playing Magic? (Other than the fact that I don't have a full deck)

I still have the arena set, which I think is the most balance, best way to play especially for people without infinite money to spend on whatever amazing deck they want. I always won in high school because I was better/had better cards. But with the arena decks there's more skill involved, unless you get land screwed.

The problem is that I just have basic cards from the Mercadian Masques block (that was my 8th grade year). I think I lucked out and had a few cooler cards, but I've since lost them.

I don't have any special effects, or any crazy shit like that. I'm thinking I might go online, get a precontructed deck that's similar to my old one, mix them together, and call it a day.

Why aren't we playing right now?

Counterspell.

And he'd say it with such a smug voice.

Fuck that guy.

I just beat that guy yesterday. The trick was a bunch of thunder spirits and that one sorcery that buffs everything you've got out.... then the bigass angel when he's in the middle of casting something else, I think.

Ya know... considering that I'm not playing any MMOs or anything at this point, I'm seriously considering trying out MTGO (Magic: The Gathering Online) which seems to be fairly hardcore (full game, buy/trade/collect cards online, play).

When I get back to campus, I think I might try that bitch out. That way I could play magic without having to actually be in the presence of other people. I also won't have to feel stupid or bad for owning some 12-year-old scrub... I'd feel bad about punching a 12-year-old in the face, but I wouldn't feel bad about owning such a kid via the interweb (ex. Alterac Valley).

OVERRUN!
