Default Anybody Play Magic?

Just wondering if anybody around here plays, or still plays, Magic; The Gathering. As my signature indicates I still do. I like black, and hate blue. I play both.

If you do still play, what kind of deck do you run?

If you don't anymore; Anyone want to reminisce about when you did play?

Favorite cards?

Just want to get an idea how many over thirty still play.

I used to play online where you bought the cards ... entered some fun comps there too

I think the one on steam is different as far as paying goes tho

I havent looked at the steam/Xbox live version. It doesnt seem like the real game to me
The PC online version is fun, although the interface is a bit clunky

Still play on and off when one of my mates organizes a card night. Haven't played on MTGO for quite a while, but have a lot of cards both digital and paper.

My preference is Black/Blue, Don't mind Red. I can do White, but not my favourite. I don't really like green, I only really use green in multi-coloured to get mana accelleration.

Some friends that I RP with play MtG on a weekly basis. Some of them play before we start RPing and then when we finish for the night. They also have their own tournaments and other game days just for MtG.

There's up to ten of them that play during their private tournaments and they are all over 30.

One of the guys also occasionally refs for the official tournaments that are held in Melbourne and several of them compete

I used to play a lot and played in local tournaments. I still have the online version on my computer for when I get a hankering to look over the cards but there just isn't enough people interested in playing that I know anymore. I used to play Red/Black decks and loved them to death. I think I still have an Alpha Shivan kicking around the house somewhere.

I had a pretty nasty 3 color deck. Black, Blue, Red with dual lands, trolls and the nervindal (sp)disks. Lots of counters, instas and when the oponent had lots of critters nervindal disk, and regenerate the trolls.

Also had a fun land destruction deck with some nightmares.

I miss playing it.

I generally play white and black. I've been using more blue lately though. This weekend some friends got together and we tried the Archenemy system. Briefly that's where three players take on one other who has a series of archenemy abilities that change each turn. Had dinner, made a night of it. Felt like old times.
