What is your Favorite Color?
I am now taking a brief intermission from frolicking about the house in celebration of Heroscape Wave 9's arrival.... long may my addiction reign. Finally we have dwarves, Native Americans, and of course more aliens with guns and blades. I wish we'd get more licensed content, i.e., more Marvel stuff... Terminator... Conan... etc., but in the mean time I'm just happy the game is still alive.
Oh... wait... back to the point. A bunch of us have been tasting MtG again through the wonders of X-Box Live. Some of us never quit playing.
My question for group discussion is, what is your favorite deck color (or color combo) in Magic (the card game, video game, or whatever version you've played)? Why?
For me its always been White, with perhaps a taste of green just because I like the big monsters. I like White because I tend to treat my cards like they're my little children. I hate seeing them destroyed, consumed, or otherwise violated, and the White deck seems to try to protect its own. I suppose my second favorite is pure Black, just because death, poison, and decay are fun to inflict sometimes. Least favorite: Blue, simply because I always feel like Blue decks are somehow breaking the game unfairly, e.g., Timewalking.
My big splurge into MtG was way back in grad school in the mid-90's when Magic was still in its first few incarnations. Budget constraints and 18XX games cured me of this disease, but I'm but I've always enjoyed the game. If you see me on XBL, I'm always up for a game. As Chris knows, I suck, so I might help your ego a bit while we're at it. Back to unlocking more White cards...
