If you're playing with strangers, I think the best route to take is extreme transparency. What kind of game experience did you build your deck for? Battlecruiser magic or more competitive games? Are you running any infinites or game ending combos? How fast is your mana? Almost everyone has a Sol Ring but some casual decks won't be handling Mana Crypt/Mana Vault decks. Also, do you typically try to make a lot of deals or do you just go after whoever you think is the threat? It's been my experience that bad games are when people look at what's going on and think, "There was no point in me shuffling up for this, I'm not doing anything relevant and I don't enjoy this."

As an example, I do like longer games that through combat. I don't build my decks with infinites or things like Doubling Season+Planeswalker Ult. However I don't typically deal, and if I have an opening for an attack I'll take it. If I think I need to take you out early, I will. As a general rule I go after pillow fort/group hug players first.

And also in general but especially among strangers, practice some empathy first. If someone's been mana screwed, maybe let them have an impact when they finally cast something. And recognize that if someone's just not having fun, it's valid for them to want to leave the game.

It's kind of funny how not even Unfinity is free from the Legendary Creature overload of recent years. They're not even all legal cards, which still leaves me confused about what the point of this is.

What mana abilities are you worried about your creatures being targeted by?
