so, well, it's me. hi everyone. as my profile already states, i'm 20 years old and live in germany. i started playing magic when a friend of mine bought portal 1, soon after i got myself the fifth edition beginner pack and a starter pack each of mirage, tempest and urza's saga. that was back in 99, when i was 12.

i stopped playing after the invasion block because all my friends had stopped and i had no one to play against (i got like 3 boosters from oddysse before quitting). after discovering mtg.com i read a lot about mirrodin block later and convinced my friends to think about the game again by the time kamigawa hit. we didn't want to spend to much money though so a friend of mine programmed a little tool that had a card database and could give you random boosters and starters. we then created a league where everyone got 2 booster of his choice every week, built decks from that and played one opponent per week. we used proxies to play the matches ^^

when ravnica came, most of the guys were tired of proxy-magic and we decided to return to the real thing - so i'm back to my favourite game now.

i'm definately a casual player, i don't invest too much money into it and i love to buy boosters (as opposed to singles) to do 2 or 3 person drafts before i get the cards in my collection. i entered FNM once (few weeks ago) and actually wonthe damn thing (triple future sight draft is a wierd format). i like the shiny wonder card a lot, but i wont attend to often, since 9 € is stil a lot of money.

anyway, glad to be here. casual magic ftw!


Hi! Welcome on board.

I too didn't play for a long time. Right before Urza Block I moved to another city and didn't play for a couple of years. Than I met some people we also used to play and we got back into it (around Onslaught block I think).

I prefer buying singles instead of boosterpacks; I want my playset of craprares and I want them now! :D

Your friend wrote a program? There's a couple of stuff out on the Net... Magic Suitcase comes to mind... or Apprentice if you just want Starters or boosters... but kudos on writing his own.

Okay, enough chit-chat. Here's your room key, strategically located next to Spidey's diaper room. Also, here's your complimentary dinner mints (really alka seltzer), your invitation to poke fuzzy510 (invitation is expired), and your key to the super secret administrative spa, where the midget porn is hidden underneath the drain in the jacuzzi (once again! Take THAT Zadok001!!!)
