Hmm.. after trying for 10 minutes to come up with an interesting way to say hi in the subject, I gave up. Anyhow, I've been visiting this board for awhile now and decided to register. (And maybe save some time in the future when I need to ask some stupid question ) I've been playing magic for about oh... 4-5 months now and I've collected around 800-1000 cards from Invasion, Odessey, and 7th ed, not very impressive, but I can make a couple decks to play any time and have fun with. There arent many people around here that I know that play magic, so it makes it kinda hard to get any better at it or ask about rules and stuff, so please forgive me if I dont know some of the most basic stuff. (btw, what is type I and II? I see that come up alot on the board) lately I've been resorting to making my decks worse to make it more entertaining/challenging, like a Black/Blue deck with really weak creatues that uses megrim (2 dmg when opponent discards) and tons of discard spells along with a couple cephalid brokers. they think they've got me then I drop a couple fugue's, a mind rot and a hypnotic cloud on em (bad? yes. funny? heh, yup) suprisingly no one has beaten me using that yet... then again, none of my friends have ever beaten me except on a goobered draw (no lands for ten turns or so ) did I mention my friends werent very good? (I get more of a challenge from my little bro at 7 y.o. , seriously, but its alot better than having no one to play) Ok, enough of me babbling, I think ill go read the board some more. Nice to meetcha in advance Oh yeah, and does anyone here know of some place in central NC (if anybody lives anywhere near there...) where ppl get together and play magic regularly or at least a place where I can find a good variety of cards?(or a way I could find one?) I dont really like having to just get whatever the little shop at the mall has for sale at the moment.
