Hello, I'm Hemingway, and I recently got addicted to Magic. A friend of mine wanted to introduce me to the game to have someone to play casually with, but instead created a monster. It's apparently a game I can be quite good at.
Well, since I just started out and I'm most familiar with the current series, and since threads exist for older blocks, I figured I'd make one specifically for Return to Ravnica.
Now, I've told you about my sick addiction. Allow me to tell you a bit about what I play. Because I've been quite lucky. I have a Boros ( red / white ) deck that contains practically nothing but cards that make opponents go "oh, god..." and is highly playable. Unfortunately, that's not really my favorite. What I really enjoy is Blue. More specifically, I've tried to build a Dimir ( blue / black ) deck which combines strong elements of control ( quite possibly the most entertaining part of Magic, to me, is telling my opponent sorry, but I'm not going to let you play that card ), and quite effective milling of the opponent's deck. It doesn't really work that well - yet - but I'm constantly tweaking it.
With that particular deck, I got lucky enough to draw Lazav, the Dimir Mastermind. Who, aside from having a cool name, shapeshifts into any enemy creature that ends up in the enemy's graveyard, by any means. When your deck is basically about putting enemy cards into the enemy graveyard, that means a lot of shapeshifting potential - even on the same turn - and a lot of fun.
I'm still working on that Dimir deck, however. And I would be thrilled if anyone had any advice on that. Otherwise, I'd be curious to hear of other peoples' addictions.
