Magic Online

Postby Mythinite on Sat Oct 27, 2007 9:39 pm

Does anyone play Magic Online? In short it is the online version of the CCG Magic The Gathering.

I've played on and off for some years, do drop me a line if you want to duel or whatever. I'm Mythinite, of course... :chy:

I played it some as a non-subscriber whaddyamacallit but the thought of all the cash i spent on real cards, then hacing to do that all over again for the digital version put me off.

Same here, I wish there was a way to validate the cards you own, so that an online version would be a reflection of your RL deck. Well, not that my deck would suffice anyway in this modern age :wink:

You can play with the 10th edition theme decks for free using trial accounts but granted it gets old pretty fast as there's only five different decks...

It's true of course that playing seriously will easily cost you hundreds of dollars before you know it. On the other hand there are plenty of businesses that specialize in selling single cards for Magic Online for as low as $0.02 a card. If you're really building on a budget you can get a decent deck or two for no more than $5. A personal account costs $9.99 and gets you a $9.99 starter pack for free. For 15-20 dollars you're good to get addicted again. ;)

Yeah that's really what I'm afraid of! :wink:

Besides, there is a new version of an old online card game that's on the way that's got me slavering with anticipation, which will be free to play this time around...

I've been keeping quiet about it until it's got a release date but suffice it to say, back in 1997-2000 it had me hooked big time.

10th edition? Jeezes, time flies. I believe I quit playing at the end of 4th :)

Shameless bump for any new members who might be into this sort of thing. ;)
