    I'm just getting back into MTG after having quit right around the time Ice Age came out. I think I was done by the time 5th edition was released. Anyway... Holy shit is there a lot of new stuff. I'm actually pretty enthusiastic about the new things, though what I had heard turned me off to going back to Magic a few years ago.


    Now I'm guessing sliver decks were beyond popular at some point(s), but I'd still like to make one eventually. For now, my main deck idea is a thallid deck. I know they were around back in Empires or whatever that series was, but I'm looking at the new thallids and new cards like "Tromp the Domains" and other such "mass bonus" cards which seem to work extremely well together.

    My question is, what series should I be buying if I want to make a thallid deck like that? All I've purchased since coming back is a Timeshift starter pack.

    Thallids are roaring for this current set. Pick up singles from older ones, but all the good ones are in Time Spiral.

    um yeah...i'm gonna go with a pokemon because i have no fucking idea what a thallid is.

    it sounds like a gay guy asking for his thallid to be ceasar. :mamoru:

    Thank you very much, sir.


    and wtf pokemon... I highly doubt it can hang with Magic.

    Thallids are fungal creatures which generally produce spore creatures over time.

    :rofl:

    Honestly, I loved playing Pokemon on gameboy back when it came out. I thought it was the shit. Then my sister's friend stole my gameboy and erased my game, undoing countless hours of work. I tried getting back into it like twice after that, but got sick of it really quickly.

    I saw some of the new cards.

    I totally do NOT dig the new design and all this glitter shit and different color symbols (black/silver/gold). It's so gay and childish.

    The good old game, I loved that. But this new shit is gayer than aids.

    Plain simple cards. Those were the days.

    Not these new gay cards with little symbols and colors to determine rarity.

    I tend to agree with you. However, I do find it convenient that the colors of the symbols indicate rarity so I know which cards of mine may be worth something in a trade without having to look up every single one. But the foil thing pisses me off. I think that's ridiculous and I'm turned off by it.

    Get this... In my first starter pack since coming back... I got a fucking foil swamp. A SWAMP!

    Also the new design. It's so gay futuristic faggortry.

    Waaay too much clutter and gay Pokemon shit. The foil cards are a joke. I don't get it.

    I'd go back to play if it was still the same design and not all this new gaylord shit. I'm actually pretty pissed off by it.

    I wish I played MTG or Warhammer 40K

    But I know I would just get waaaaaayyyyyy too involved with it and dump tons of time and money into it.

    Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but I have a ton of other responsibilities so I just can't justify it.

    I only have one Serra Angel left. I gave away my Seraph too. I have two Baron Sengirs and no Sengir Vampires. :rofl:

    I missed this game. I'm glad to be getting back into it. I just hope I don't go apeshit and kill someone for bending one of my cards. I used to be fucking irate over that shit, and I'm a lot bigger and less tolerant now than I was then. :o

    Well I just dropped a hundred bucks on cards today. Got one booster of every series and a startup kit. I forgot how fun this shit is. I'm going to have to start hanging out with the rest of the MTG nerds at the shop soon.
