TCG General
Discuss and arrange matches for Yu-gi-oh, Magic: the Gathering, Pokemon TCG, and other collectible/trading card games here.

I used to play Yugioh casually among friends and acquaintances. I won't claim to be particularly good, but I did collect a good number of cards over the years, whether they came from booster packs or others passing their collections over to me. The four decks I had were a Crystal Beasts deck, a Naturia deck, a Mermail deck and a somewhat generic earth deck with loads of insects for getting out Doom Dozers. I did also occasionally get my hands on a few Pokemon cards, and I have a bunch of old ones in the attic. I probably played my first few and only games of it just over a year ago when I was down the old internet cafe we used to have here, and I enjoyed the little I got to play.

However, last year I got into MTG, and I've been hooked ever since. The resource management aspect of it in particular really appeals to me, since it offers the opportunity to face many choices as you play which may bring you closer to or further from victory. I've been attending pre-release events for new sets and competing in modern standard and block-based limited games, arranging sessions and drafts in the backroom of the local pub, usually buying whole booster boxes to do so. It's been a while since my last game, but I'm already itching to get back to it.

If anyone would be interested in a game of any of these three online somewhere, or even another card game, I'd be stoked to play. I may fail to provide decent competition depending on what it is, but I like to think I grasp things quickly.

i went really hard in yugioh in 2015, top 8ing three regionals in the year and day 2'ing nawcq, but i haven't played virtually any non-retro format yugioh in the entirety of 2016 and don't really have much desire to

i haven't tried to play a modern pokemon format since 2004 lol but i'd be down for base set/jungle/fossil format games on tcgone or something

i'd love to play mtg in general but idk how to play it online without having to spend $$$ on mtg online

I got into MTG in middle school. That was around 2000, with Odyssey block. I fell out of it for years and then got back into it in a casual way in 2014 with friends.

I fell back out of it soon after but I still have all my cards.

Trading card games? I've spent my whole life playing those, and I'm really not sure why.

neen 24th March 2017 01:17 PM

I played commander with my playgroup in 2014-2015 for a bit, along with pauper 100-card singleton. I never really liked 100-card singleton formats though. I think I'd like pauper more as a regular 60 card deck format.

And I've decided to build Painter/Stone, kind of like described above, but with some major changes to hopefully be a legacy deck eventually.

Terp 31st May 2017 07:18 AM

So I've talked about my Bird Mill Deck in the Discord 1uite a bit and I'm gonna upload a decklist, and if anyone's interested, do a Q&A session on the strategy and decisions in the deck, along with a post detailing all the stupid shenanigans it does.

I've been running a Red/Blue SS3 Goku deck in Dragonball Super and it's fun. I'm trying to optimize it as much as possible. You have 51 cards in a deck counting the leader.

All players start with 8 life, which are represented by cards you draw from your deck and put under your leader at the start of the game. When taking damage, that life card goes into your hand unless the attacking card specifies otherwise.

At the start of every turn, you have the option of putting down a single one of the cards in your hand as energy. Red focuses on aggro while blue is about energy management.

Here's what I'm thinking:

Son Goku // Heightened Evolution Super Saiyan 3 Son Goku

Saiyan Cabba x 4
Raging Cabba x 4
Hit x 4
Lighting Fast Hit x 4
Manipulating God Champa x 4
Furthering Destruction Champa x 4
Destructive Terror Champa x 4
Assassination Plot x 4
Vados's Assistance x 2

Energy Boosted Majin Buu x 4
Whis's Coercion x 4
Majin Defier, West Supreme Kai x 4
Powers Combined, Kibito Kai x 4

(These cards are all black. Black cards can usually be played without paying energy, as long as you have cards in "warp" - (banished))
Unrelenting Assault Trunks x 2 - 4
Haru Haru, Attacker Majin x 2 - 4
Shun Shun, Protector Majin x 2 - 4
Supreme Kai of Time, World's Protector x 2 - 4
Time's Judgement x 2 - 4

tl;dr: Does anyone who has more experience with card games and the patience to look through all that have any thoughts/advice?

i've separated all of my legacy deck ideas into three decks:

mono-blue draw-go control
MUD (artifact ramp with metalworker)
red-white painter's servant combo

only the first two are built in paper currently, the third was broken down and the cards used for the first two.

neen 12th January 2019 12:43 PM

tried making a modern deck with some spare cards i had around. i kinda like it! play Atog, play a bunch of artifacts, then sacrifice the artifacts to make Atog huge, cast Fling to deal damage to opponent!

neen 19th January 2019 02:15 PM

made a list for a 2002 mono green deck. odyssey block with some masques cards. if i cut out the mercadian masques block cards (vine trellis and blastoderm), it could be a legal deck for standard as it was from Nov 1 2002 to Feb 28 2003.
