I recently started playing Magic, on PC anyway. I must have been nostalgia-ing over childhood memories of Pokemon and Yugioh cards and before I knew it I was playing the Magic 2014 demo on Steam. Didn't take me long before I decided to buy the full game. I'd never played Magic before now, always assuming it had a steep learning curve. I'm probably still really crap but I've been doing okay against the AI. Really been enjoying it so far.
I'd have liked to get into playing the physical card game but unfortunately I don't know anyone who has or would be willing to play this. I suppose it's probably just easier and cheaper to stick with the computer game.
If any of you guys (@Gobblemeister @Spooky @ExtremeFudgeMaster @Mumbo or anyone else) are interested in playing Magic 2014 with me on Steam, send me a friend request and say hey. Here's a link to my profile. I'm interested in seeing how well I fare against an actual person. I could just play random people online but that seems a little less fun.
On my last match (image below) I ended up completely overwhelming the opponent. I've never had anywhere near that many creatures on the battlefield at once before. Still experimenting with the various decks though.
