Here's one for the 'Egg-Heads' among us: What drives Magic player's to play the style and colors that they do? First, I believe that anyone can play this game, please note that I did not say that everyone could play this game, well . With that said, that means there is an even distribution of play styles. Let me clarify, I mean that if you took a poll of about a thousand <random> people (let's say US citizens) about thier hair and eye color, I'd be willing to bet that you'd have about the same number of people with blonde-ish hair, brown-ish hair, red-ish hair and about the same number of people with Brown-ish eyes, blue-ish eyes and green-ish eyes. Now before you go thinking that I am saying that numbers wouldn't vary somewhat, then let me tell you that I'm not saying that. There's always a "Margin of Error" or skewed numbers for whatever reason. But, generally, there wouldn't be a landslide on any of them. I say US citizens because we're a mixed breed of whoknowswhat, you couldn't do this poll in Asia, unless you adjusted the poll question that best reprents what you are trying to find out. Back to Magic, I'm saying that I think there are about the same number of control players as there are combo players as there are beatdown players (I believe those are the three GROSS play style categories). Of course, no one likes to be pigioned-holed into just one of three categories, but you all belong to one of those, trust me. Let's take me, for instance, I never used to know it, but I like Control decks, and ya know, that's funny, because I'm a teacher and, I have a job whereas I have to control folks. But not just that, I have ALWAYS had the need to be 'in-control' of life situations, I think most people that know me write it off as me being 'full-of-myself', so be it. But I am the happiest playing magic when I'm playing control decks ie U/W Control, Con-Troll, Rising Waters, etc... you get the point. I also think another factor is that, I sorta grew up in Blue (magic life, that is). The kids who originally showed me magic were control players. I did, however, fall in love with Green, too, that's probably why I am really attracted to Blue/Green decks . Again, no one likes to be catagorized into neat files of order, but I think that many of us magic players are playing the colors and styles that mirror our life. Are there and can there be exceptions to this? Sure, if that's what makes you feel beter . What do you think? Remember, only YOU will the truth, and the truth will set you free!!!!!!!! I love blue, I love blue, I also love green, yipeeeee, yahoooooeyyyyy!!!!!!!
