    I am seeing a lot of people around here with the sig's stating which color they are, and with that many MTG players, I think it's mandatory we have this thread. Show off your decks, ideas, tourney placings, and collections, lets see what you guys got! (If you want to be added to the club title your post with something like "add me")

    Some useful links:

    Gonna start this off with my Type II Deck, see if that pulls anyone in. So far it seems all those people with MTG sigs don't play, lol.

    Anyways, this is a build I tossed together in Lorwyn, I didn't play much after that and have got 2 pakcs of shards since then. The deck is ok, mildly competitive, I didn't go online to buy cards, and I personally hate netdecking. Probably going to toss something more competitve together soon, but this is fun for now.

    Red/Green Warrior Beatdown:

    Creatures:
    4x Chameleon Colossus
    4x Bramblewood Paragon
    4x Wren's Run Vanquisher
    2x Imperious Perfect
    1x Winnower Patrol
    1x Changeling Titan
    1x Nath's Elite
    3x Nova Chaser
    4x Brighthearth Banneret
    3x Flamekin Bladewhirl

    Instants/Sorcery's:
    4x Blades of Velis Vel
    2x Tarfire
    1x Heat Shimmer

    Planeswalker's:
    2x Sarkhan Vol
    1x Garruk Wildspeaker

    Artifacts:
    4x Obsidian Battle-Axe

    Lands:
    1x Karplusan Forest
    2x Ancient Ziggurat
    9x Forest
    7x Mountain

    There it is, lets seem some of your guys decks :rockout:

    I tried doing this a while ago...never took off :(

    Been playing MTG for the the better part of the last 11 years. I used to be ranked 21st in my state and my brother in-law was ranked 2nd, somewhere about 20th in the nation. He was the one who actually taught me how to play. I recently become a DCI Judge able to host tournaments, however the place I host at locally just closed down because of the economy :( I have an extensive MTGO collection but haven't played since Shards of Alara was released. I really wish to find people locally to play with...playing online doesn't have that same feel...

    We can play online by using Apprentice AND Hamachi. :)


    My all-green Elf deck, named "My Elf Deck" :p

    3x Timberwatch Elf
    3x Heedless One
    2x Wood Elves
    1x Rhys the Exiled
    1x Elvish Vanguard
    3x Quirion Trailblazer
    4x Llanowar Elves
    4x Llanowar Elite

    Instants

    7 cards

    Lands

    14 cards


    I have an all-red Elemental deck too, but can't seem to find it, as is my white "I heal and heal and then you're dead" deck.


    I barely have any idea with some of the newer things with MTG though (i.e. planeswalkers).

    And I'm only a "casual player", haven't really joined tournaments and the like...

    Magic: The Gathering Club? On a tech forum? Why don't you guys just hang a sign around your necks saying "Do not have sex with me." and then David Carriden yourselves.

    I don't want to have sex with any one on these forums anyway! Except maybe DanTheBanjoman, I'd have his gay babies.

    Nice to see some MTG players, I thought this thread was just going to get bumped back to nothingness, even though I see a ton of people with MTG sigs. If you want your name up on the 1st post, add a title to your post, something like "add me"

    BTW Lotus wasn't big money back then, I remember when I started MTG they were only like $400 - $500, now your average one is about 2k - 3k depending on set and condition. And a mint one went on Ebay just a while ago (mint meaning it was printed dead on center as most aren't) for 20k. So they were valuable before, but prices have gone crazy high now.

    No other card shops near you? I now moved to a larger town, but I use to have to drive 45min to go to any card shop holding tourneys.

    Download Apprentice here

    Download hamachi here

    I can create a network in hamachi already if you want, with password protection of course. Then we can play using Apprentice, without going through Magic-League itself. :)

    Can buy them all over online, but they will gouge your eyes out for one. If your only using a 2 color deck could save a lot by running a pain land or the lands that can make 2 mana of diff colors. Or wait for 11th edition to land as it will have dual lands again.

    200 random cards, or like specific rares and then tossed in commons/uncommons

    BTW here's the pricing on them http://magiccards.info/shm/en/278.html $24.99 is the cheapest you can get one for online.

    Could have been good or bad, all depends what you got. Like if you got some kitchen Finks or Boggart Ram Gangs as uncommons then got some rares tossed in, that could have worked out pretty nice as those uncommons hold rare like value. Granted you could trade for those easier than a reflecting pool.
