So far, with these Memories threads, I've started... 2 for artifacts 1 for a land 2 for blue cards 3 for black cards 2 for green cards 1 for a red card 1 for a gold card Well, something pretty obvious is missing there. It wasn't my intention to leave white out, but I suppose I'm not surprised. It's not a secret that white has been my least-used color in Magic. It's not that I hate it, but taste and circumstance made it generally a fifth wheel for me. When I was in junior high, back in either 1998 or 1999, I had a monowhite deck at the after-school game club and it was either lost or stolen (I always suspected that it must have been stolen, but never found out either way). Back then, my collection was so small that this was devastating. The pool of white cards that I had to work with was, for a while, smaller than for the other colors, and so I tended to ignore the color for deckbuilding. This had a cascading effect: as my collection grew, I was building more decks with the other four colors and so I was trading for chase rares in those colors and not in white. I didn't eschew it completely, but I just didn't focus on it as much. Perhaps because of this or perhaps in addition to it, I never really felt like white thematically resonated with me as clearly as the other colors. It seemed like so much of it overlapped with green. I did use it as a support color, and eventually I got a lot of mileage out of certain individual white cards, such as Auratog, Land Tax, and Abeyance. And I did begin to favor white/blue/black control decks. Esper, it came to be called. That's still one of my favorite color combinations. But my use of white did lag behind, relative to the other colors. I didn't deliberately save white for last in creating these Memories threads, but once I noticed that I'd hit every other major category, I had the thought, "Well, what's my favorite white card? Might as well start a thread on it." The answer: Academy Rector.
