Magic: The...I can barely say it...Gathering
    #4286100 - 06/12/05 11:29 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

God...I know, after the "Post an interesting fact.." thread, that I'm not alone in this. Who else shelled out a probable thousands of dollars for Magic: The Gathering cards when they were younger? I just found mine as I was cleaning out my room to prepare for my mom's big move and jeez. I had so fucking many. It was fun though. I'll admit it.

I pimped my decks out and sold my extras. There's some cards ice age and before that are worth some serious cash.

My decks would never even compete with all the new shit they've come out, but its fun playing ppl with older decks.

edit: :crazy2:

Yeah, I special ordered cards to build the deck of my dreams, all around this one card called Sneak Attack that was fuckin awesome. My friend had a Sliver deck that destroyed everyone everytime.

Okay. Who'd you think I was luring? Muppet had the Ice Age logo as his avatar, that's all I can think of.

Its not embarassing how nerdy it is, its embarassing that I wasted $100-200 (hopefully no more than that) on it. I played with the revised edition cards. I have no idea what this silver and ice age stuff is, i just played black-blue. it was fun, but it seemed like not enough people actually sat down and played each other. Plus I went to a rich school so some kids had put ridiculous money into it making decks others could never win against.

My friends and I got some cards for this weird new cardgame back around 1996 or 97 at a gaming convention here in Phoenix, AZ.

We played it and thought it was pretty neat, but other than using the prototype decks he gave us for free, we never got into it more. I eventually threw mine away a few months later.

They were prototypes for magic: the gathering

They would probably be worth bank now lol.

I had a goblin deck and a big red-green that I played a lot. I don't rreally miss it so much as I miss in particular the nights me and my friend Larry would wage war on one another and the game would last from like 1 AM to 6 AM.

This was actually spurred more by a picture I found than last night's thread..

It was of the longest game me and my friend Larry ever played. He had a black-blue discard deck, and I had a goblin deck, and we played for six hours or so into the middle of the night, at one point needing to move everything to another room so we had enough space. When it became clear he was about to get the better of me, we decided to step back and take a picture of the whole thing.

You guys are all talking about the cards that used to be shitty as the cards that are worth a lot of money.  :?:  Ice Age Icy Manipulator?  WTF is that???  I had a set of every red card from legends on backwards.  I had Ali from Cario, Guantlet of might, Candlebra of Tawnos, Library of Alexandra (Which I traded like a revised shivan dragon and a few craw worms for :lol:), berserk, beta icy manipulator (which is a shitty card anyway), elder dragons (which suck), more shivan dragons then I could legally play at one time (shivan dragons suck), a harem of serra angels, a crypt of sengir vampires, a gulag of assassins.  I usually made decks that focused not so much on bringing out the guns as decks that tried to turn my opponents strengths into weaknesses and decks that tried to get to 20 first with no other concerns.

I had a red/white deck that had many mana dumps (Cards that had shit like 1: Becomes a 2/2 soldier), 4 mana flares, 4 power surges, 4 manabarbs, and a few circle of protection redsetc.  So, after about 5 turns my opponent was in the uncomfortable position of having each of his lands producing 2-4 mana, taking damage each time he tapped a land, and taking damage each time a land went untapped.  I, of course, was ready to duel in this alternate playing environment, because I had cards to minimize my damage, but most people just couldn't handle it.  Decks like that were fun cause I could do nothing on my turn and still watch them die.  It was great when they would get this realization that "Nothing in my deck I could draw would let me beat you, even though I have more life then you."

I had a red/green deck that had birds of paradise, kurd apes, scribe sprites, lanowar elves and a grip of cards like giant growth, blood lust, berserk, ball lightnings, lightning bolt.  Very too the point deck, designed to kill fast.  Not too much expensive cards, ethier.  I played a guy in a tourney whos deck was all pimped out with moxes and shit, and I just about killed him, even though I was not very pimped out (city of brass and berserk were the only 20$+ cards).  I think that dude won the tourney and I was his hardest opponent.  He had to pull a black locus and a timewalk and a timetwister so I wouldn't kill him the second in our best of three.  :mad:

I had this great red deck with mishras lands that was for huge 30+ player games.  It's goal was to make everyone like me, with 4 howling mines and four mana flares, and then to drop candlelabra of tawnos down (xT: untap X lands), use voltic keys (1T: untap target artifact) to let me use the candlabra several times, and split a fireball between the two people to my right and the two people by my left to kill 4 people with one card, then I could fork it and kill 4 more  :evil:.  Of course, I soon got a big red target ron my back from this sort of thing.

That game was great.  I remember some guys who were real dicks playing it.  Ice age cards are valuable now?  :shock:

My best deck was red-green.  I'd put out the Sneak Attack enchantment which let you pick up your deck, look for any creature you wanted, and immediately put it into play. And you could use it that turn. So i had this Thorned something that couldn'tbe defended. It was sweet.

I feel like shit talking about this. :lol:

tomk's post was so long I got embarassed.
