Hello, planeswalker!

I learned how to play MTG from Portal before I moved into Mirage and 5th. Edition. I've been playing ever since. My favorite decks (in order, follow the links for explanations of the decks' history):

1) Goblins
2) Academy
3) Dredge-a-Tog
4) Prosperous Bloom
5) Necro
6) Workshop/MUD
7) Ghost Husk
8) Ghazi Glare
9) Zombies

My favorite Magic cards are (in order):

1) Tolarian Academy
2) Psychatog
3) Goblin Lackey
4) Goblin Welder
5) Necropotence
6) Mind Over Matter
7) Sundering Titan
8) Braingeyser
9) Squandered Resources
10) Metalworker.

Here's a read that will change your life and the way you play games: Playing to Win by David Sirlin (one of the designers behind Street Fighter).

Also, be sure to check out my folders page for information regarding older decks. I've been working on creating an extensive archive of decks from various Pro Tour Top 8s and explanations for certain cards.

"How come people seem to only play Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning, and Price of Progress, but not Kamahl's Sledge or Breath of Fire? I myself have won lots of games using Lightning Strike!"

I don't like any setting that planeswalking feels out of place in. Middle Earth would be cool, except it takes place on our planet and there's never been inter-dimensional travel mentioned anywhere to places we could see as planes. Warhammer Fantasy would also be neat....except again, there's no traveling outside of the Old World except through the Chaos Wastes, which is a whole can of worms that doesn't fit with MtG's fluff of planeswalking. I think the only settings where planeswalking makes sense are Narnia and Wonderland.

IDK...it all feels very much like a cash grab because WotC can't be fucked to make new artwork and worlds anymore. We'll never see something like Mercadian Masques, Ravnica, or Ice Age from today's WotC and it's been that way for a while now. Sets are either revisiting existing places or "theme parks" for the Jaycetice League.
