Woo! I wanted to play seriously, but there aren't really people to play against round here, so i can't practice or hone my decks or anything, so i haven't really been able to. I'm sure i am good enough though, which so many people must have said so many times before getting creamed in the first round of a minor tournament
... I've always been better at a draft style of play, than making decks anyway. I like the less standard style of play of it. I mainly go for the mana generating/big creature decks, either something like tinker, or more a trinity green/elf deck, but with some big stuff in there, rather than relying on quantity of creatures, and my best decks have always featured green strongly (either that green/white deck i talked about before for the invasion block, or a green/red playing with some older cards too).
I disagree with hammer, mainly because of my love for lightning bolts, but i think that only being able to target a creature with that damage makes the spell not too good, though it does depend on someones style of play.
