My friend is currently ranked like 10th in the state of florida. I used to always kick his decks ass when he lived by me ;) But his decks are on another level now.

I hate the new cards. Way too powerful, and the colors seem to be losing their identity. Though, I'm sure people have been saying that about every new edition, even before I played..

Don't really play anymore. I still have my main deck, which is a white angel control deck. Mother of Runes and cho-manno's blessing make my Angels unblockable while defensive cards like Pacifism, Wrath of God, and Arrest keep the opponents creatures neutralized.

Not the most advanced and it does best against creature-based decks. Red burn decks for example give me trouble, because then my arrests and such become useless. Unless I got Story Circle out burn decks are def. a weakness

I returned to MTG for about two years now. Legacy format is so huge older card prices have inflated as hell. Every dual lands are very expensive especially Underground Sea.

Extend format is now dead while the new format called Modern has replaced it. It is in Wild West stage now so there were a lot of card bans and uncertainty of card prices. Other than Tarmogoyf, Dark Confidant is the second most expensive for newer ones.

Standard has also been great lately since the last block that includes two of the most broken cards in the format; Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic. The competitive scene seems to be more balanced than ever. Sealed and Draft are also very entertaining since boosters form the last two sets can have as much as three rares or mythic rares. I once open two mythics and one rares in a pack during a Sealed tournament.

There is no way newer cards can be any powerful than certain old ones. Color identities are still about the same except during Time Spiral block.

Yeah some of the old ones are ridiculous, no doubt about it. But just in general, a lot of the new combos just seem silly. And the new abilities. I don't follow MTG like that though so maybe I'm full of shit. In my experience I felt the cards were getting stronger and stronger.

Word, haven't checked out a new set in a WHILEEEEE.

looks to me that "creatures" are getting stronger, but the spells got worse.

So they reprinted this new time walk card called temporal mastery. Wow. It will be pretty easy to use just when you top deck it.

There are not. There are more better designed trying to make powerful but not broken cards IMO. Like a new set, there are trying to cooperate topdecking with old broken cards.

Remember Time Walk, that cheaty card that gives you a free turn for 2 manas?



They make a new one, but you have to topdeck it to use at Time Walk cost and it can only be use once.

Man these new decks is unaffordable.

I'm looking at these legacy decks and none of them are cheap. I have some of the older cards, hymn to tourach, dark ritual, underground sea.

Any deck i can make with that?
