Hello! (I didn't see any MTG threads in the recent pages)

I'm a fan of Limited formats, especially Cube (on the few chances I get to bust it out), where I can enable themes like G/U Facedown Tribal or R/W Reanimator.

Do y'all have a favorite format, favorite Limited environment, favorite draft theme, pet cards you always draft if possible, or so on?

Alternatively: what do you run in Commander? How silly/cutthroat? How have you tweaked it?

i pretty much just play modern, even though i have some old Unlimited cards in my deck (ones that have been reprinted in a modern-legal set, though)

my decks are usually green or green-red, mostly because i just like having more mana to play more/bigger creatures faster. toss in a bunch of artifacts and you get the gist of my decks. (oh, and occasionally throw in RotE eldrazi titans, for good measure.)

i've never done a draft or friday night magic or anything, i generally just buy a booster for each new set, sometimes a deck if i really like the theme (like the recent egyptian stuff omg)

I play Commander almost exclusively. My main commander is Ezuri, Claw of Progress, who finds his bro Sage of Hours and they take infinite extra turns together.

That said, I would be hella down for a Jul cube draft on XMage.

I play both limited formats and Commander! hi

I also play Pauper EDH which is the best format in the whole game

I'm putting together a paper deck for Depala in EDH right now, which I'm not expecting to be good, and figuring out a counter to my partner's Stormkrik Captain PDH deck. I also have a box of Kaladesh and a box of Unstable and no land with which to draft them oops

I can't afford drugs, sadly.

One of my friends had picked up a lot of booster packs for the latest un- set, so we drafted that on new years. It was very fun to play and I enjoyed that a lot.

Magic can be really fun to play with people who are around similar skill level and most importantly have decks around the same power level. I have a bunch of magic cards lying around since many years ago, and I tried getting into playing it several times. But I just didn't have anyone to play with around my skill level and with decks around my level. So I always just had an awful time with it, to be honest. V.v


If you regularly keep with standard or if you just play draft then I'm sure it's fun. But either of those options are also decently costly.

Our group uses a program called Cockatrice to play online, which is free, so we only end up buying cards if there’s a limited event happening at the FLGS

I personally prefer Xmage, since it has a rules engine and built-in tournaments & Limited.
