idk, i mean i wanted to, but i was just crushed. i had so much, three god card binder, rare cards galore, deck case, and most of my cards were protected wid card sleeves. i was a real pro

You can try to buy a structured deck. There are a few decks that are coming out that have a lot of very powerful cards, and then you can buy some booster packs or just get the cards you want directly in a shop (Or you can play free online and don't spend a single penny :fox-;):)

That's so true for Yu-Gi-Oh!, but there's a trick with that one. Since Konami likes to ban a lot of useful cards, the people that get them for their decks are totally screwed (happens a lot to a friend of mine :lol:), and then they're left with a shiny (because almost always it's a rare card) worthless card, and then, after a few years, they lift the ban and the prices rise a lot because a lot of people get rid of those cards (happened recently too). Because of things like that people say that Konami is a troll
Yeah Wizards bans cards as well, not very often depending on the format, they tend to ban out of the fact that something is seeing so much play your pretty much either playing the deck that the cards are used in or your playing a deck meant to stop them, and the diversity that makes the formats fun and deep dies away making it a simple A or B choice. Ban lists tend to be small and rarely are they lifted from a format once they get banned in it. The only major price dips are for the Standard environment wish consist of the last 2 blocks printed and the good cards for that format tend to be pretty expensive while their in standard for the 2 years, but once they rotate out they tend to drop much much lower then before, $30 cards dropping to like $11 or less over the course of like month or less.

I know what you mean. In the last world tournament in Yu-Gi-Oh! there were only two decks at the tournament. Dragon Ruler (a fairly new one) and Prophecy (not as new as the last one), and it really ruined the variety. Luckily my friends use a lot of other decks (because those two are EXPENSIVE) and it's always fun to duel with them. I also remember when a card was rumored to be unlimited with the new ban list and it went from 10 dollars to 60 here where I live, but it was only unlimited in japan, and here it was the same. That was like the blunder of the century :lol: (I didn't get one, but I feel pity for those who bought it for 70 dollars)

ive been out awhile has there been many new rules with the new tv series?

I don't watch the series and instead follow the official rules from Kinami, because the show isn't that reliable when it comes to ruling :?. There are the Synchro and Xyz monsters as well as Union and Tuner (these are almost the same as effect monsters), the new ban list was applied like two weeks ago and other than that I don't think there's anything else

XYZ are the new black cards that are located in your extra deck and are summoned by overlaying a specific number of monsters of the same level.

Union monsters are monsters that can be equiped as Magic equip cards to other monsters and they gain some effects by this

Okay, so I'm super happy that this thread was made.

'Cause, for one, I am a huge Yu-Gi-Oh! freak.

Also, quite literally yesterday, I just started playing Magic: The Gathering.

During lunch at my high school, me and my friends will sit down in this one spot where we won't be disturbed and everyone pulls out there decks. Of course, not all of my friends play Yu-Gi-Oh, and not everyone plays all at once that does play, but we usually have at least one duel going every day. We sit out where everyone can see us and just don't care who Also, we'll duel whenever we come over to each others houses or on the weekends. I know of a couple of my friends who also duel online, but I haven't quite gotten into it.

I personally have a Magician based deck that I use the majority of the time, as well as a Warrior deck that I'm also fond of. I've made others in the past, but those two have stuck with me, and they're my two most refined decks.

I stopped collecting years ago, so I have nothing like Xyz's or Syncro's which, by the way, two of my friends ALWAYS use. But even with my outdated deck, I've only ever been beaten twice since I started dueling again three years ago. I even win when my friends double team against me.

I used to play all the time when I was younger, a lot of the kids in my neighborhood having cards. My best friend was the one who got me into it, but I eventually got better than him. I became the reigning card champion for the seven years  lived there, almost never losing. It was great. I won a ton of cards that way, and I traded a lot as well.


With Magic: The Gathering, I still only really know the basic rules and such, but I had my first duel just last night! Which I did in fact lose terribly at. But that's besides the point, as it was only my first time, and just a practice run.

I want to get better at it and continue to collect cards. So far, I have about three hundred, most of which I got from a Deck Builders Kit from Wal-Mart, but also some my friend gave me. Another guy I know is going to bring his cards tomorrow and he said he was willing to give me some, so that's nice.

It seems that Spellcasters and Warriors are two of the most reliable types of monsters, because those are the ones I seem to see the most. I'm not saying that they're unoriginal because they're commonly seen, just that they seem to be very good in duels

I would say go with Magic, because it is so much more diverse and flexible than Yu-Gi-Oh!. Also, I absolutely love the art for the cards. My very own art teacher himself drew for several of them when he was a freelance artist. He also did a lot of stuff for D&D, as well as book illustrations, video game concept art, and book covers, amongst other things.

But I don't mean to say that you shouldn't gie Yu-Gi-Oh a shot, it can still be way fun, especially with friends. But I've been a hardcore YGO fan for most of my life, and I prefer magic. Just saiyan.

I use to be a duelist,and I had a great loss of cards. That is why I'm not dueling now. I remember one time, I was dueling with this one guy, and he played a trap as if it were a magic. DUDE, READ THE DUEL GUIDE!!
