    Well I have MTGO for one player fun, but I want a game I can play by myself in my freetime, with actual cards, like Solitaire Magic. Do any of you know any fun one player games?

    Are you wanting to know one-player games you can play with Magic cards? Not regular cards?

    You can play "War" with 2 magic decks... that could only take one player...

    And use the casting costs as the values of the cards?

    Casting cost to start with...

    If you flip creatures over then they battle based on p/t - if it ties, then you flip 3 cards over, using only creatures to add to the p/t total, and so on...

    I've tried this a couple of times:

    I made a deck consisting of 40 non-land cards. When I first did this I started out with creatures only. During what would be my Phantom Opponent's (PO) main step I roll a D6. On a 1, 2 & 3 there was no effect. But on a 4, 5 & 6 I would roll the D6 again to determine how many <X> permanents I could put into play from the PO's deck.

    Rolling a 4 meant I would roll the D6 again and put in <X> minus 3 permanents into play from the PO's deck. On a 5 I would roll the D6 and put in <X> minus 2 permanents into play. And a 6 <X> minus 1 permanents into play.

    Each permanent is put on the stack before it resolves so you can respond to it.

    In response to any spell I play my Phantom Opponent rolls a D6:
    on a...

    1-No Response

    2-Counterspell

    3-No Response

    4-Mana Leak

    5-No Response

    6-Force Spike

    The PO gets every step except he doesn't draw a card. Obviously there is no element of skill on the PO's part but if your looking to just play mechanically this might be a way to go.

    I've also have played this with two Phantom Decks to resemble multi-player. You can adjust the rules anyway the suits you. For example; when I'm playing a deck with propaganda I roll the D6 for each creature that could attack me and each propaganda I have in play. Each pip on the dice is one mana.

    I haven't figured out how I would adjust it to playing land destruction spells, it'll be hard to figure that one out.

    That sounds more like "play-testing". If that's the case, I have a Duelist that lays out what various "animal" opponents would do. It's a bit out of date (I think it was from 96 or so), but maybe it'll give you ideas to adjust it to today's cards.

    there is a site with all kinds of different ways of playing .\\agic...

    I'll try to find it again and post it here for ya.
