Hey, I've seen a few people follow me that seem to be new Magic the Gathering players. I've been playing for years (basically just commander now) and would be happy to talk with anyone. Card opinions and rules questions are usually fun. :)

@ryusei This looks like it would be a fun if you managed to play it in modern or something where everyone's decks tend to be faster. Maybe my metagame is super slow, but it seems like it would make for a boring last few turns.

@ryusei
To clarify: my meta is all really goofy casual commander players.

@frostotron Multiplayer casual Magic is the only format I particularly enjoy, tournament Magic is too focused on the Broken Deck Du Jour and Deck That Directly Counters It

Plus, having a bunch of random, constantly-shifting alliances and "I could deal with this player's field, but then I won't have enough to stop so-and-so from running roughshod over the rest of the game" is one of the fun parts of Magic to me

@ryusei
I could see myself getting into sealed or draft again eventually, mostly because they can't boil down to a handful of decks like that.

@frostotron I'm happy to see the #mtg tag coming to life here in the fediverse as well! I mostly play limited and pretend to know what I'm doing.

@floi @frostotron I have not, but it's on my "to try" list, especially since my LGS is starting a weekly pauper event.

@floi @ishara

I haven't, but it sounds like a good time.
