Anyone here play Magic? A friend got into the game a couple months ago. The last time I really spent time playing a TCG was Yu-Gi-Oh! back when I was 12, so I was skeptical, but now have to admit I'm hooked. Wizards of the Coast has built a rather rewarding game and competition system to draw older players in. It certainly doesn't hurt that I jumped in during what seems like a very flavorful and thematic block, Innistrad. I love a good fantasy setting, and while gothic horror isn't a personal favorite of mine, Innistrad just seems to get it right. I also like that they threw in some clever subversions of fantasy tropes -- ie Avacyn is the guardian archangel of the land, but she was actually created by the vampire Sorin Markov with the utilitarian goal of preventing his kin from totally wiping out mankind and thus dying out themselves. I'm actually looking forward to the conclusion of the story arc when the "Avacyn Restored" set releases. Anyways, what are some of your favorite cards/combos/strategies? My favorite card has to be Geist of Saint Traft. Got a foil card of him out of the fourth or fifth booster pack I bought (this game will kill your wallet if you're not careful). Turns out he was one of the top 5 cards in the set. I got a blue/white spirits starter deck to build around him and that's become my main deck, with my other main deck being a white/green token human weenie deck. I prefer to play the hero rather than the villain, so I'm chomping at the bit to see what cards Avacyn Restored holds.
