Said on The Magic of ......


I play Standard all the time, EDH all the time, and Modern and Limited occasionally. I think that being connected to multiple formats keeps me from ever getting bored, in addition to just enjoying the game in all its entirety. I've never had a decline in interest in the game and I don't think I will anytime soon. I can relate to slumps thanks to other games, like League of Legends, but I have no perfect perspective on Magic slumps because I can't fathom one for myself.

The one thing I wonder about the original post, Jay, is if you would have felt as good about your experiences if you had lost most of the games you recounted. I think that's more of what defines a slump. If you still derive joy and entertainment from a loss, you're in good shape. But if you have to win to feel good about playing Magic, you should probably reevaluate your perspective.

The "you" I'm referring to you is of course not you personally, but a generalization of the player base.
