Magic the Gathering is the Devil! (Is it Evil or Immoral?) August 23, 2009

Posted by James in : all, random, theory, webcomic , 8comments

demonic tutorIs Magic: the Gathering immoral, evil, satanic, or unholy? Is playing Magic a sin? The following is my take on the morality and ethics behind Magic: the Gathering.

Some people think Magic: the Gathering is evil. You might have heard about how Dungeons and Dragons is evil and some of those same people like to stamp just about everything as “evil.” I remember seeing some kind of a national enquirer show like Entertainment Tonight that had a little 2 minute blurb about how Magic is a devil’s game with demon artwork. I thought it was pretty ridiculous and I dismissed it. But then some guy on the internet was making an argument that something was evil “just like Magic the Gathering.” Amazing. Someone actually believed it was evil. (more…)

magic malarkey

I made several webcomics for Dragon Warrior a while back but got burned out. I wondered for a while about what I would want a Magic: the Gathering webcomic to be like, and it was only recently that I came up with some ideas. I know that there are already some Magic webcomics out there, but they certainly don’t live up to Knights of the Dinner table, which is pretty much what I want it to be like. (more…)

Budget Decks Part 3: Blue Control August 18, 2009

Posted by James in : all, strategy, tips, constructed , add a comment

The most powerful budget decks should be legal in legacy (Type 1.5), which is a tournament type that allows all cards from normal Magic sets except the most over-powered cards, such as the power 9. The most powerful color in magic is Blue, and it isn’t that hard to make a very powerful blue deck without spending a whole lot of money. A mono blue control deck will be a great way to make all of your friends very frustrated because it won’t let them do anything. (more…)

I Invented Planechase First August 10, 2009

Posted by James in : all, planechase , 5comments

We finally got the rules for playing Planechase, a new way to play Magic a little bit like Chaos Magic. You roll dice to try to activate a special card (Enchant World) and only one special card can be activated at a time. This is exactly what Nightmare Magic was, a game I invented about 10 years ago.

Budget Decks Part 2: Legacy (Type 1.5) Red Burn August 10, 2009

Posted by James in : all, strategy, constructed , add a comment

Legacy (Type 1.5) is a tournament type that allows all cards from normal Magic sets except the most over-powered cards, such as the power 9. The best way to make the most powerful deck possible is to make a Legacy deck because it allows cards from every normal Magic set ever made. The best way to make the least expensive deck is to make a Legacy deck because older cards tend to be worth less. People only want the newest cards because the most popular tournaments only allows us to use cards from the newest sets. If you want to make a budget red deck for standard (type 2) tournaments, go here. (more…)
