Hi Everyone, I wondered if anyone here played MtG, as I've just started! A few friends picked it up and I decided to join in, costs a fortune to keep up with (must buy more
) but the actual game itself is great fun! It'd be nice to see more players of it, then I can ask for strategies for beating a friend of mine who has a Leyline of Vitality
coupled with a Protean Hydra
, which I think is a little over the top...
Sorry for all the nerd speak up there, but I thought I'd ask, to see if anyone else played so we could have a big discussion!
Also, apologies for the joke earlier, I'm not sure meek comments come across well in text! They seem fine in my head but reading them back it's a bit
The actual game is a little bit like poker (strangely enough), because you can bluff with what's in your hand to put your opponent off his attack, but of course you have monsters and magic spells to back it all up! At first I thought it was incredibly sad (ok, it still is a bit sad!) but it's really fun and you can sink hours into figuring out which cards go well together as well as the actual battles which can last from a few minutes to a couple of hours. Plus it's really easy to learn!
I'd love to get more people interested in it, because it seems to be relatively unknown over in the UK (it's recently become quite big, again, over in America) so I thought I'd start here
plus who doesn't like elves and dragons and vampires and things like that?
