So Magic the Gathering is a game, the collectible card game but I think most of you reading this know that already. I played way back when the Revised Edition was the main set. I was probably a senior in high school at the time. When they started changing rules and taking certain cards out of print I stopped playing and eventually I needed a large chunk of cash for a new car and I cashed in my collection and never looked back.
23 years later my son and I were looking for a hobby to share. Something that we could do and enjoy together. That is when I found the game again. We bought a Duel Deck and had a ton of fun with that for two weeks and then found a local game shop and are enjoying not only playing but building up a collection of cards.
As a way to commemorate my return to the game and his beginning in the game I found a 30 day MTG blogging challenge and I want to share that with you all here.
With that being said:
Day Five Favorite UN-card
I was not playing the game with the UN-sets were released. I believe the first one came out in 1998 and I remember one of my buddies talking about it. Of our play group he was the best player and he would go on to win a tournament or two while he was still playing. Through him I sort of get abreast of some of what was going on in the MTG world. He got a bunch of UN=cards at a tournament or something I remember seeing them then and thinking bleh.
My local LGS store has a complete set of one of them. Which one I have no idea and they were funny to read and hilarious I suppose but really I just don’t get the point. When I am the store looking in the case my mind is engaged on whatever deck I am trying to fix. I don’t like to be distracted. I much less like to be distracted by something I consider to be quite silly. But that is me…I am old.
I suppose that means my favorite UN-card is none of them. Not my cup of tea.
Let me give a big shout-out to MTG The Walkers Lounge on Facebook, A great place for all things MTG.
