Magic:The Gathering

I started playing Magic: The Gathering when an ex-boyfriend of mine introduced it to me. I was already into computer/video game type gaming, and he thought I was smart, so he thought I'd be interested in Magic. Well for once he was right and I ended up being just as into it as he was for the time we dated. It was fun... and I guess I sorta had an emotional attachment to my cards so when I stopped playing I still held onto them. So I only played for a little under 2 years, and my collection isn't too impressive but I guess it's one of the only things I enjoyed during that part of my life so the collection is something I want to keep. Besides, I have heard tons of people regret selling their collections, it wouldnt be worth the $50 I'd get for my collection %)

I can't say I was ever very good at magic. I played mostly black and green, never blue because control was just way too difficult for a newbie like me to master very quickly. Besides, green is so cute! And black is just so cool.

I went to a couple prereleases in Syracuse, NY. They were fun, but I think the insane number of people attending sorta bothered me since I am not really one for crowds. I never won much, and when I did I think it was mostly because my opponent was nervous to be playing a girl(as it's pretty much a male dominated game). *Shrugs* I guess I never got too great at deck building either, and so when we did sealed deck or booster draft I'd be totally lost. I played mostly because it was fun, even if I was the only girl usually playing at the local card store. It was always cool when the shop owner's daughter came down, 'cause I finally had another girl to play with, and it got their attention off me and on her, yay!

So here's my collection, and the three decks I still have. I guess I'm posting the decks so anyone reading this page can say "no wonder you fucking lost!!!" *grins*


My Decks


Black Life Gain:

The point I tried to get through with this deck was that since black leechs life a lot I put in a bunch of artifacts to counter this loss... of course I then realized that wasnt really a problem in this deck *sigh* Still I was an inexperienced player and I was paranoid about losing life *shrugs* This was pretty much my first deck

Green Creature Deck:

Multi-Color Green Saproling Rith Deck:

This was the last deck I ever made, only actually played it a couple times, and never got the hang of using it... probably because it sucks just as much as the rest of my decks. Anyway, the dragons are kewl so I made this Rith Saproling deck, and multicolor was in so I thought I'd try it out.
