Does anyone here like Magic the Gathering? It's a great time to get into Magic especially paper magic right now. I also play Magic Arena often and would like to introduce you to the hobby I blow my "become an adult" money on.

You guys also have the exciting opportunity to blow your stimulus money on a card game from your youth.

Played this game exactly once at an uncrowded pizzeria during junior high. Either huge beginner's luck or I was getting set up to take a hard fall later on. Bled time until there were stars out. Not playing the game again spared me from buying a deck.

I collected cards a bit during the mid 90's fad but never got into playing and never did much with it after that.

You guys should download Magic the Gathering Arena for PC.

https://magic.wizards.com/en/mtgarena

It's a free to play game that will let you play Magic with millions of other people. It also has a tutorial that will teach you the game. You can then play online with me.

I draw animal welfare council. It gives a +1 to reducing the likelihood that a dog will be in macbeth's questionable care.

That's not how you play MTG at all.

I had a pretty decent squirrel deck back in the Odyssey days. Couple of friends tried the Magic Area and said it's not the same when you can't smell the Redbull on your opponent's breath at 10am on a Saturday in the hobby shop's back room. Girthstone feel isn't my jam, and it looks similar.

I'd love to. Nut Collectors were the heat of the build, 4 of them. Then you need some Squirrel Mobs, again 4. For enchantments, I had some card (Spider Silk was it?) that give +0/1 with flying. So now we've got flying squirrels. The key to the whole thing was staying alive long enough to get critical mass. If the game passed turn 15 or so it was almost a guaranteed win.

This has been my TED Talk, thanks for listening.

was girthstone an intentional typo or do you talk about girth enough to have your phone autocomplete?

lol, accidental. My friends all call it girthstone, so without thinking I typed it out that way. I had to actually think for a second to remember the real name of the game.
