I never really got too into it, even though I tried. There are so many creatures with different abilities, it was hard to take it all in.

I'd play more if I was good at it... :P

PS. I was thinking about playing yu gi oh because I heard it was a lot simpler... but then it just seemed too lame... maybe i'll give magic another try...


It is complex, but to help, it's best to learn the basic playstyle and the abilities. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions because I'm sure you'd find someone willing to help you out. I've played Yu Gi Oh, as well, and while it's simpler, it's a lot more expensive, and you don't get enough bang for your buck. The most expensive card in the last magic set (Shadowmoor) is only around 15 bucks, while the most expensive in the last Yu Gi Oh Set (Light of Destruction) is in the 200 dollar range. But, if you want to get back into the game, feel free to send me a message.

I play the actual card game but I only started during the mirodin[sp?] expansion and ended my career during the early release of tenth ed, though I have some old cards which I just randomly bought here and there.... its good, but like most trading card games, it could get expensive the moment you it got you hooked....

If you have enough friends that are hooked, you can all just play peasant magic. This revolves around having no rares in the deck and going with a deck that's only about ten bucks. It puts players at a more even playing ground, and the games are more rewarding and last longer, adding to the fun.

The cards in Shadowmoor are constantly fluxuating. Last I checked, Vexing Shusher was the most expensive card at around 15, like you said. One thing interesting about shadowmoor, some of the uncommons are selling for higher prices than some of the rares! The ones that come to mind are Tattermunge Maniac and Kitchen Finks.

Well, I'm sure you can see I'm a total magic nerd. If anyone has any questions regarding the game in any way, feel free to ask me and I'll do my best to resolve your issue!

Magic Nerds unite! Granted, there are always some commons and uncommons that sell for more than rares (especially the really crappy ones) Look at cards like Priest of Titania, Isochron Scepter, and others compared to rares like Okk and several of the Magus cards.... Oh, by the way, I managed to pull a Japanese Rhys the Redeemed. =D

Yea but Isochron Scepter is a fantastic extended card, as is Sensei's Divining top, which sells for about $7.00. Its fairly rare that an uncommon from a new set reaches heights like $4.00, the price of Kitchen Finks. And the only really crappy rare I've found in Shadowmoor is River Kelpie...god that card blows... The best thing I've pulled so far is a foil Oona, Queen of the Fae.

True enough. Oh, by the way, sorry about the quick buddy request. I kinda read the thing about pming after adding you. But Shadowmoor must seriously love me. I pulled a reflecting pool and a foil Oversoul of Dusk in the same tournament pack. I did pull Shusher from a fat pack, but I traded it off.

I dont have a reflecting pool yet, but I do have at least one of each of the other rare lands, three each of Sunken Ruins and Mystic Gate.
I have like 5 Vexing Shushers, as they were given out as promo cards for the release event lol!
My favourite card in the set, however, is Twilight Shephard. I dont really use it, but I love the artist, so I picked up a playset on the day of shadowmoors release.

Well I did learn how to play decently... but the people I played with were pros (or at least really good at it). My cousin gave me all of his older cards from when he played 7 years ago and my boyfriend even made me a red/white deck. It's fun, but I guess the really reason why I didn't play was because I didn't have anyone my level. That's why I kinda wish I could play the online one.. to find people more my level, but I don't want to buy more online cards if I already have a lot of physical ones...
