A lot of GoW players seem to be into Magic: the Gathering. So I figured I’d start a thread.
What kind of player are you?
What format do you play?
What are your favorite colors to play?
Favorite kind of deck? What different decks do you have?
What do you think of the new set coming out? (Kaladesh)
Personally, I’m a bit of a lore nerd, and I mostly play casually. I try to keep most of my decks Modern-legal, but I am by no means a competitive Modern player. One of my roommates is though, and I find it honestly very offputting and his sheer competetive-ness has started to drive me away from playing and more towards collecting and lore.
As for colors, I fancy myself a Green/Black mage , though I can pull out a mono-white deck in a pinch. My white deck is my answer to most competetive players and is actually probably worth quite a hefty sum with all of the work I’ve put into it, but it is heavily influenced by the flavor of Serra’s Realm. Big, white angels and boardwipes for days. It’s all I really get to play with how aggressive and competetive my roommate is, but I still prefer my G/B deck that likes stalling out games and letting them go for a long time, eventually shredding my deck into the graveyard and keeping myself alive with Bow of Nylea. Mass reanimation is the name of the game, and I love things like that.
Where Kaladesh is concerned, I really wish I liked the setting more, but the writing coming with it on their forums is incredibly interesting, and I probably have to catch up a bit now. But it seems a nice transition into the set coming afterwards, and a showdown with Nicol Bolas.
Oh, also, Panharmonicon is broken, and it’s not even out yet. I’m just going to put that out there.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that Lili is my favorite 'walker. Favorite printing of her is probably Dark Realms. Veil is too overplayed. Dark Realms has some serious combo potential and sees play in one of my side-project mono black decks that (ideally) likes to triple Dark Ritual into something massive first turn
