There is this place just five miles away that holds weekly tournaments. Things that trouble me are the fact that the game seems pretty complicated and I may not be able to memorize all of the effects (like haste, hexproof ect.) and what they do.

Game is pretty simple to understand after a few practice matches. I recommend buying either a Deck Builder's Kit ($20) or a Fat Pack ($40), either way, they both come with little guides on how to play the game.

Didn't win any matches Friday night but it was still nice practice. Only issue with my deck is I needed to make it a few cards smaller. In the matches, I either ended up with good cards but no mana or almost all mana and no creature cards.

what deck are you running?

Using a Selensya deck. Trimmed it down a bit yesterday so that made a big difference for me.

I was planning on starting withe a Sole Dominion deck from Magic 2013. Is this a good base to start upon, and have you heard any about this deck. I don't really like this multi-color stuff and I think I want a solid color deck but there aren't any premades that are uni-color and tournament legal.

Might not be a bad idea to buy a premade deck. However buying a Deck Builder kit could be useful, it gives you everything you need to build a deck and then let's you decide what you want to put in your deck.

I fear that if I made a deck all on my own I would mess it up just starting out and having a mana curve that was out of whack and thing such as that. I think getting a pre-made deck and making some minor improvements would be the best route.

That's why once in a while I'll jump into a competitive tournament and just see what the meta is like. Even if I go zero wins out of 3/4 matches, I'll at least get to find out what different decks can do and learn them that way. Then again, I've been slow with this game lately but Christmas doesn't really help matters. At least Gatecrash will be a good comeback opportunity.

Well, Gatecrash spoilers are solidifying throughout the net and it's just cementing my resolve to choose Simic. Seriously, I'm really digging the evolve mechanic and there's just something about merfolk I just find cool.

In the end, though, I'll probably do a blue/black/green deck and see how it ranks against other players during Dragon's Maze.

that really sucks. would've been a nice place

anyway guys what did you think about gatecrash?

I've been waiting for this one since I found out dimir wasn't going to be in RTR. really loving the new mill cards.
that cipher mechanic made me plan a whole new mill deck for it but it should be worth it once I get all the right cards

battalion is a deadly clock in limited but far too conditional and slow for constructed. evolve has potential but might be too slow. bloodrush will see play in select cards like ghor clan rampager (nuts). it can lead to some kick in the nuts card disadvantage (discard two bloodrush cards to pump...oh fuck you murdered my creature, 3 cards for one) but the fact it adds so much utility to your deck to have creatures when you need them and pump spells if you don't means it is one of the better gatecrash keywords. cipher had massive potential to be scary as fuck but was criminally overcosted because wizards wet their knickers over breaking the format with invisible stalker + cipher spells. (hands of binding is naaasty in limited though). extort is much much better than i anticipated. grinds down the long games. very good in limited and two headed giant. constructed is possibly to fast though

I've yet to play any format so I can't really weigh in on how these mechanics stack up in them. what I do know is that a friend of mine built an evolve deck backed up by corpsejack menace. got hit by a primordial hydra for like 74 points of damage
scary stuff there

For some reason, EDH is becoming popular again around where I live, so if anyone would like to share their decks and Commanders, that'd be cool.

For me, I'm using a BUG deck with The Mimeoplasm as my Commander. I've built it around pumping up my creatures and grave robbing, so it should be a fun deck to play with.

Gravepurge is also a nice card, albeit they go to the top of your deck instead.

Well if you're running Orzhov or some other deck with a splash of white, Faith's Reward works well in case of a board wipe.

Do you guys know about the program Cockatrice?

If so, i'm trying to get into MTG a bit but I don't have anyone to play and it'd be nice to play some people who know what they're doing and can help me learn.

The only experience I have with MTG are the planeswalker games and an Eldrazi deck I netdecked so I know how to play but I don't really know the metagame and the more advanced aspects of the game.

So I was introduced to this thing over the weekend, and it actually seems pretty cool! I pretty much know the basics/mechanics of the game already, meaning I have the gist of each color and card type, but that's it. Can I get some help on a starting deck/setup, since I still have no idea what to do strategywise?

Buy either a Deck Builder's Toolkit or an Event Deck.

The toolkit gives you a tonne of random cards from recent sets (including basic lands) to build decks from. Very good value for money.

An Event deck is a competitive deck (read: playable compared to those god awful intro packs) complete with sideboard.

Then grab some friends and have fun. You can keep one of those rules pamphlets close by if you get confused or look it up online.

I think the newest one is kind of 'ugly' compared to '13 but I like how some of the monsters like Grave Titan and It That Betrays have neat animations.

These games taught me how to play magic and now that '14 has an eldrazi deck I can enjoy it even more.

It is uglier than '13 (and I don't like the deck balance or variety compared to it either, but then again '13 had more decks in the meta due to the expansions), but it has sealed which is the best bonus mode they've ever done. Eldrazi ramp deck has become really viable even in 1v1 with the inclusion of the promos (I don't even run anyway Eldrazi in the deck cuz I'm a cheeky boi). The Dimir pile is my favourite because I'm a controlling bastard.

I think the newest Duels of the Planeswalkers has a much better interface. It's very easy to navigate. I used to have trouble sometimes scrolling through the menu in 2013 because it would randomly scroll the opposite way I'd want. This is playing the Steam version.

Dmir are always a little annoying for me because I am used to YGO so a deck that draws and mills you so cheaply and easily feels broken to my inner king of games.

Are the decks in Planeswalker all standard format usable? I wondered this in 13 as well because some of the cards I recognized from older versions and thought maybe they were reprinted or that Planeswalker didn't restrict itself to formats. I'm not really experienced in playing magic outside of these games so I don't really know about all the sets and stuff.

What is your Steam ID? We should play some time, i'll add anyone else who might want to play too.

I am thinking about a Sliver deck. Is this a bad idea? I think it could be tons of fun being able to essentially make a pool of shared abilities with different slivers.

No. The Planeswalker decks use a mish mash of cards from Magic's history. Some are playable in Standard, others are not. You can visit What's in Standard? to see what sets are currently playable in Standard.

Standard is a rotating format - which means only cards from recently released sets are viable. Older sets rotate out of standard as new sets come in. This rotation is going to happen starting 27th September, when the new set Theros comes out, and the cards from Magic 2013 and Innistrad, Dark Ascension and Avacyn Restored will no longer be playable in Standard. That'll be the best time to get into Standard for you.

What is your Steam ID? We should play some time, i'll add anyone else who might want to play too.

I've sent you a request! My Steam name is 'Spooky'.

Are we talking about making a Slivers deck in Duels of the Planeswalkers or in paper Magic? In paper magic, Magic 2014 (which is the most recently released core set) has plenty of slivers to use. There are also Sliver cards printed before this. This is a list of all the Sliver cards printed in Magic. The deck construction comes down to your brain and your wallet!

That Sliver link doesn't seem to be working (maybe it is just me). Hopefully this one will work.

If not, go to Gatherer - a searchable Magic card database listing all Magic cards ever printed.
