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 Twenty-Three-Favorite Sorcery
I m going to go with another old school red spell. Not just because I am an old school kind of guy but because I was thinking about this today and I think it has yet another application. I am a big fan of versatile spells especially since the way of the MTG world is to have sleek, super efficient decks.
Having just gotten use to the world of Planeswalkers and what they can do I think Fireball is my favorite sorcery. It is an effective piece of removal and for one more mana I can target a planeswalker as well. At least I think I can…that is my understanding of the rules and if I am wrong in that please leave a comment.
The way I have always played fireballs is to save them till I have enough mana to remove whatever needs removing with one saved over for a second target. In the past that has almost always been the player but with two extra mana I could burn a critter, damage a planeswalker, and give some damage to someone’s face…man i love playing red.
Let me give a big shout-out to MTG The Walkers Lounge on Facebook, A great place for all things MTG.
