I've been playing Magic on and off for a number of years now. I got back into it right before M12 came out. I like playing standard because I like the pay-as-you-go approach, as opposed to dropping hundreds of dollars at once on a legacy deck. It also forces me to keep making and playing new decks, which is half the fun.

I did recently drop my collection to pick up a legacy deck, and I've been having lots of fun with it. The people at my LGS help me tweak it, and it's been smooth sailing.

I also love playing in limited formats and EDH, because they turn deck making into a skill, and forces creative play choices.

Said on Eidolon of the ......

#3

I disagree with the sentiment that you should play it last, except in specific scenarios.

You're the red deck. If you land a T2 Eidolon, it immediately puts your opponent on the "answer it or die" plan. They take a turn off to kill it, take 2 damage in the process, and you don't take any damage at all.

In a situation where they don't kill it, you're still playing more aggressive spells than them. All of your burn spells deal 3 damage at a time, so they're still taking more damage than you.

Taking 2 damage to deal 3 to your opponent is worth it almost every time, expecially considering that they have to take even more damage for each spell they play until they kill the Eidolon.

(Also it gets to attack for 2 at a time, which isn't irrelevant)
