    How did you shuffle that? I'll bet you didn't have a demonic tutor in there.

    I shuffled in chunks of course. It also depended on how much downtime there was between games. If there was a lot of downtime then I shuffled the whole thing. Otherwise I only shuffled the top 100-200 cards.

    I had a demonic tutor, but if I used it I just looked through the top 100 or so cards until I found a card that was fairly useful to the situation and also within my current mana limitations.

    Has it ever. My coworkers, who match up at lunch and after work, are playing on the cutting edge -- half of their debates seem to be over calls on exponential combos. Funny, and impressive, given the power their decks wield; but light years from Revised.

    The last deck I bought was when the Ice Age expansion came out. I could never afford good cards (middle school), so I played with what I had. I remember an acquaintance of mine had a 'White Weenie' deck with four Serra Angels (sp?) years ago. I don't think I ever won against him. I'd be interested to see what kinds of decks people here have put together past/present/future. I liked Red/Blue & Blue/Black back in the day.

    Oh and Jack Flak, Cockatrices were one of my least favourite cards to go up against. My older brother had two of them and would absolutely crush me if he managed to get them out.

    My best friend usually played a red/white deck with 4 Serras. I think I beat him about 75% of the time. Want some Cockatrices? I have like 10.

    I used to be really into this. About the time the Alliances expansion came out I realized they were spiralling out of control towards Montiness and it got much less interesting.

    I had dozens of decks. Most lethal was my stasis deck. Using time elementals (or boomerangs), stasis, and Kismet, you just shut someone down completely.

    I think my most amusing was my "Dead can dance" deck. Black and blue were the only mana and spells, but the monsters ran the gambit of all colors, my biggest, nastiest, most ridiculous crap, casting cost be damned. Craw giants, shivan dragons, colossus, all of it. I had no plans of casting any of those, though. Using things to "discard a card and draw another" and what-not, I toss all those beefy monsters into the graveyard. Hell's Caretaker, animate dead, soul exchange with a breeding pit, and other joys then bring my monsters straight out of the graveyard into play. My first turn I would typically refrain from playing a land so I could discard a Scaled Worm or some such, then begin the dance of the dead.

    My pal had a concept deck also, one which rather elegantly balanced the extra-payoff of spells/permanents requiring sacrifice (though you burn resources madly) with the unfortunate weakness of control decks that one may lose control (though until you do you whip some ass)...it was named, unimaginatively but quite aptly, the "Take Your Shit And Sacrifice It" deck. Many many things of his that used sacrifice as part of the activation, and many many things to take your creatures and toys...and you guessed it, he does not sacrifice his own creatures to that life chisel, or Ashnod's Altar, or Lord of the Pit that's kicking your ass... he sacrifices -yours-.

    A similarly named exploitative deck I used, dubbed the "Fuck Us Both Up But I Can Take It" deck, used preventative white and explosive red. Orcish artillery, Inferno, Brothers of Fire, EarthQuake, everything Red I could muster up that does damage to others while doing damage to me (but not Manabarbs!!)...then I whap it with a circle of protection from red. This deck provided my favorite combo Evar...Inferno, then Blood of the Martyr, then Reverse Damage. Net effect: I gain 6*(number of my creatures + 1) life and my creatures are unharmed, you and each of your creatrues takes 6 damage.

    Ehhh, better shut up now. Like me some MTG, ain't played in a while.

    Stopped playing around Mirrodin when they started being imbeciles and banning everything left and right.

    Not to mention that the game is just too expensive what with the mass buying to be able to put together a competitive deck.

    Well!! I learned it originally because my boyfriend of the time played it frequently, as did many of his (which became mine as well) friends. So, taking an active interests in his, I asked how to play. I still don't grasp the steps very well (the upkeep, and actions and such) as I tend to do things out of order.. but I did like playing. I'm just not very clever with it all. I played a reanimation deck because it was easy, and I won an unhinged tournament one time at a friend's birthday which allowed me to keep all the cards as the prize.. So I currently have a crap load of those and nothing else. Pretty cool game though.

    I've been playing casually with some friends. Just using a precon Merfolk deck for now.

    Doesn't do so well against the tournament ones they have, but oh well.
