Magic: The Gathering

Hi! So a few of us super nerds here at Threadless play this great game called Magic: The Gathering. Perhaps you've heard of it? Perhaps you play? Maybe you're tapping a little Mana right now?


We got any other MTG nerds here? Furthermore, how many of you are local to Chicago? Or maybe you'll be at our meetup this year. You totally know where this is heading....

My brother and I both started playing it a few months ago. I have one red/white deck and I'm not that good.

I used to play, years ago. I had so many cards. I've always wanted to get back into it.

I loved blue, white counter decks and red/black burn decks

I remember when kids would bring in huge ziploc bags filled with magic cards to school

and then they got banned

I used to play. My brother was really into them. I wasn't great. Whenever I played, all the mana ended up at the bottom of my deck for some reason, so by the time I could even play any monsters or do much of anything, I was dead.

If I had more people to play with I'd probably play a lot more. Playing the same person/deck over and over can get pretty boring fast. :(

I hear theres a solid online version now, but im afraid id commit too much money to the hobby all over again

I used to play all the time in 6th grade. On Valentine's Day, a girl wrote, "You're good at Magic."

My brother and I played years ago and started playing one another a little bit recently.

It's been 16 years since the last time I played Magic. It was a hot and heavy but sadly brief love affair thanks in part to the glory that was Pogs.

I did play but it got too expensive and got rid of all my cards.

"I'd tap that!"

BRB, submitting that as a t-shirt idea at nerdyshirts.

My peak with Pokemon cards was a holographic Blastoise. I have yet to duplicate that amount of success.

lolz I just sold my entire massive collection a few months ago. I was really into collecting/playing with my friends in jr high, even though I wasn't any good.

Ste7en

my friends father owned every card from every collection up until 5th edition (alpha, beta included) at least....a couple years back I heard he sold them for a lot of money. I sold mine for a few hundred dollars when I was in 10th graded.

I keep finding Magic stuff though. like books and promos and a box of old rares I didn't know I had. maybe I should bring it all to Chicago next meetup and trade it for beers.
