magic rules, i have that card.
try buying a starter deck, its a good way to get started without spending much money.
play it for a while and see how you like it, then you can get into building your own decks.

You need 11 mana cards to summon that card. So, yeah, in play you'll summon that card AT LEAST on your 11th turn, if you are lucky. Meanwhile, your opponent could win. Or destroy your mana cards.

You clearly don't understand the way magic works.

There are various artifacts in existence that allow you to have access to more mana quicker. With the right hand, you could easily get it out by the fifth or so turn.

It is possible to get Darksteel Colossus out turn one. play a swamp, then play dark ritual. use one mana from dark ritual to play entomb. entomb puts darksteel colossus in your graveyard. then with the two remaining mana play exhume and it puts darksteel colossus into play. next turn beat their face in.

I know that, but the sets are getting too ridiculous now, that card is way too powerful without any sort of setback, it's more and more difficult to have any kind of balance in the game without spending more and more money. Granted the older cards now cost a lot more, but i dunno, when i played the game was more balanced.

X is as much as you're willing to pay. 1, or 20. In the card I linked to, Condescend, however much you put into that X, the other player will have to tap to keep the card out.

Kird Ape is a good one drop, but if you play it on turn one its not going to be a 2/3 until turn two. In the new set there is a one drop on white which is a 2/2. For a turn one drop attacker/blocker I would take it over Kird Ape.

yep, it is
it can't beat every other card... there is creature destruction that doesn't specifically target that creature that could destroy it, or a card like swords to ploughshares would also destroy it.
its not completely indestructible, although it is quite good if you can get it out.

I love Sunburst. I just got back into magic a few weeks ago and my friends had (blech) bought some of the premade decks. I played with the Sunburst one and enjoyed myself. I want to make a Sunburst/Samurai deck but I don't know if it'll work out, we'll see when I get my hands on some CoK cards.

Are you playing the deck without any modification? Or have you added anything to the deck? I'd like to make one but I don't know what colors to base it off. Of course green is the major mana producing color, but I don't want it to be a mono green/artifact deck.

well, I geared it specifically to combat some of my friends - I added a handful of slivers cause one of them had a sliver deck. I added some green spells because it's already basically a green/mono deck, but a handful of other cards that were not green - it has enough mana of the other colors to effectively get by. I think a Sunburst deck like that combined with some very tribal mechanics (i.e: samurai or slivers) could be very effective and fun. I just don't know how it'll pan out til I have some samurai cards, but it worked awesomely with the slivers. At any given point, I'd have some nice 5/5 or 4/4 artifact creatures out and a few healthy slivers.

Ha ha! That's very clever to put in a few of your own slivers against a sliver deck. I am assuming you put in metallic slivers, since you would not give any of their slivers a benefit. I have a sliver only deck which is green/white/blue. I don't see how the slivers and sunburst would work together though. They are just two completely different abilities which would probably run better if just one ability was highlighted in the deck. But if you are playing a very limited pool of people who tend to play the same decks I could see how that would work out.

that's exactly the case, I play against four people who rarely change their decks. I mean, we play pretty rarely anyhow. So yeah.

I tossed in some metallic slivers, the white sliver that gives slivers protection from a color (cause the other guys sliver deck was heavily blue and since mine was mostly green I'd just say blue and he'd be fucked) and some other stuff I don't remember. It was actually his deck, I hadn't bought any cards at the time. I'm working on my own deck right now, but I'm mostly waiting for CoK.

EXACTLY. This was my situation. I picked it up 94/95ish, stopped playing when I got to high school which was around the days of Tempest / Weatherlight. I hated that stories were having such a big impact on it, but I was also just getting kind of bored with Magic.

I love the new sets though. I love their look and a lot of the mechanics. I ignore the stories, heh.

Wizards of the Coast are really trying to dumb down Magic. I guess they think that Magic players get too confused if there are too many lines of text on a card. Also most of the new mechanics are pretty easy to learn. Phasing was a bitch, just like banding and flanking.

Banding confused alot of people. If I remeber right you could band with any other creature, but you couldn't band with more than one creature unless another creature that you were banded with had the banding ability. Basically you can band as many cratures as you like but only one of those creatures cannot have the banding ability. Then dividing damage and assigning damage from there just got confusing, like if you had a trampler banding with a flyer.

I'm all about Type 1, type 2 is somewhat of a cash grab for wizards in my opinion. You have to constantly buy new cards and stay updated to be competitive.
Type 1 allows you to pick anything really (almost) and make a deck that could be strong for years.

I don't play type 1 because I don't have any of the power nine. I don't play type 2 because I do not see any creativity in the decks. there are like 3 or 4 decks which everyone plays. Extended or sealed deck/drafts are the only tournys that I play in. I would much rather just play casual with as many players as possible. I love decks that slow roll and don't win turn 1-3.

I think it depends on who you play against. There are some really good old cards, but if you play against a person who just plays newer sets and buys a ton of cards to get the very best, then yeah you might get beaten if you are just playing a halfway decent older deck. The key is to find people to play who have about the same card base as yourself. That's why I like drafts and sealed deck tournys so much. Everyone starts off with about the same opportunity to win.

yeah the game is getting more ridiculous with every set. it's like they craft cards perfectly, by the old standards, and then tack 2 cheap new abilities and forget to balance it in the casting cost. the last few times i played against people who used sets newer than 6th i ended up leaving the table in disgust.

and what the fuck is up with the new look? it looks fucking retarded.

and what the fuck is up with the new look? it looks fucking retarded. this is exactly what i've been trying to get at.

man i remember my older sister worked nightstaff at the dorms at fsu and this guy left a box of rare beta and revised cards. there was a revised black lotus signed by christopher rush, the artist who drew the picture. i was envious.

i almost collected an entire expansion set--homelands. it may be worthless but i've still only got like 5 cards left before i have the complete set. my brother almost collected the entire visions set.

call me stupid but I like the new look. I dunno, I played so much magic back 95-97 that I got really tired of it. I like the new stuff. whatever.

instead of that gay curly text it's bold and much more easily readible. the colors are more distinctive and lush. ... it just looks a lot better to me.

they changed the borders a few sets ago. look at the only card posted in this thread. that's not what an artifact should look like. period.

PS I play magic from time to time and this thread rules. I don't like the new look either but the new Japanese set (a buddy of mine got a sampler from some premade thing he bought) looks pretty sweet.

hah, yeah, he told me it was a good one... i don't understand the game well enough to know why exactly though.

you tap it for one green mana for each creature you control.
usually lands only give you one mana, period. but this one if you have a lot of creatures out, you are tapping for a LOT of mana which can really accelerate the game for you.
