Go to any major search engine and search for Casual Magic. Go ahead. I'll wait. Now, what did you see? I guarantee that it falls into one of two categories: 1) Posts in single forums on boards where it seems merely a second thought, perhaps a half dozen threads and a dozen active participators. 2) A post here I realized that we were growing in prominence, but I hadn't realized until now that we were actually the Casual site on the internet. We have been for quite a while for that matter, it seems. No other sites are growing to challenge us. If a casual player wants Casual Posts-Tournament posts in a 95-5 ratio rather than the other way around, they come here. We offer the greatest casual forums on the net, excellent articles, and a dedicated, friendly community of members. We are everything a casual player could want in a site. Or can we offer more? The illustrious Type I patriarch Rakso's primers got me to thinking: Why weren't we doing this? Rakso has been posting them for quite some time now, but none of our other members have really been contributing anything to such a fantastic idea. Then, after a few weeks, they would be bumped down into the archives of the main page to be forgotten. Rakso's hard work goes into Beyond Dominaria, and it shows. The primers he and some of their other members have made are excellent. There were also only so many there. Dozens of classic archetypes have been forgotten, but not through any fault of Rakso's. We should all be making our own primers for our favorite decks, as a tribute to them if nothing else. Rakso began with his beloved White Weenie primer. I'm currently working on my own Black Control primer (hopefully to be completed in the next week), to be followed by a Merfolk primer after that. Does anyone play Elves? Okay then, make an Elvish Encyclopedia. Zombies your favorite? Go to work then! Goblins, Dragons, Rebels, they're all waiting. Let's make even more resources available to our lurking brethren who visit but do not post. This brings to mind my second point. What on earth do we do with these once they're done. Certainly, we could post them on the main page with the rest of the articles. If we do that though, we serve these efforts two injustices: a Lack of Attention, and a Lack of Permanence. Why not solve both issues at the same time? A Recommended process for the CPA Primers: Step 1: Actually writing the primers. We should make these sanctioned by as many CPA members as possible, with one person responsible for actually writing it and the rest there to add their own thoughts. These threads would not even need a new forum. It could go here, or in the Deck forum, or even in the Single Card Strategies forum. Step 2: Submit it to an editor. NOT for posting on the front page as an article, but simply to edit them. If it is to represent us, let's try to keep it as free from misspellings and incorrect punctuation as we can. Step 3: This is the important one. Ed, if you're reading, this one is for you to read: actually posting the Primer. I believe I have a solution for where to put it for maximum accessibility. On the front page, the left side contains a sidebar full of navigation links. If Ed agrees to create a section for Primers, we can give our efforts maximum exposure. I think that CPA primers are a potential first step to making the CPA the place we all know it can be and want it to be: a haven for casual players. Not just the greatest community Magic has on the net, but a comprehensive resource for the casual player at the same time. Any thoughts or suggestions here are welcome.
