I started collecting around late 1994. (The Dark and Fallen Empires, Revised was the basic set) I recently got back into Magic shortly after Scars was introduced. I had learned of the casual format known as EDH (now called Commander by WOTC) and I loved the idea of creating decks that would make use of all the interesting old cards in my collection. I occasionally draft at Johnny Cee Cards. I used to recommend Chadams but, sadly, they have gone out of business.
My advice to players in draft? The highest priority should be creatures, followed by removal. After that, a few good combat tricks and equipment. Obviously there would be exceptions to every rule, but a good rule of thumb is 16 lands, 20 cards that are creatures or removal, and 4 other cards.
