    Well i never used burn primarily in any of my decks, but i always put a couple of spells in when i was playing red, just to have the option available (mostly breath of darigaaz as mass removal against weenie/swarm decks).

    Well yeah, i agree with that, though i prefer personally playing a benzo/reanimator sort of deck with the mongrel, so with the Black/Green combo i can also play the ever annoying spiritmonger.
    Spiritmonger was a *****. Really. For about two years. If I didn't kill them by turn five, that thing really spoiled it for me.

    Craig what a pleaure meeting YOU here.
    Can someone explain to me how the game goes? Is it kind of like Yu gi oh? Cause I played it once...
    Its certainly not like Yu-Gi-Oh, its far more complex. Yu-Gi-Oh is pretty much all about having the biggest creatures you can find with some monster reborns to win the match easily, as theres little scope for strategy in it. Its a little kids card game. Magic has alot of opportunities for playing intelligently and strategically, so its for people who have grown out of that phase (although, and i may get alot of stick for this, playing games like Yu-Gi-Oh etc can actually help develop strategy in playing Magic)

    Which is, of course, the power of the Benzo/Reanimator, as you can get a turn two or three spiritmonger with it... but yeah, if your on the other end of it, it isn't all that fun to deal with.

    I have recently moved away from the big 6/5 fatties and I tend to spend max 3 mana on creatures, possibly pumping them up with something

    I quote, from www.misetings.com:

    Spiritmonger Causes Bowel Movement
    By: MB - September 19, 2001
    In a recent Providence PTQ, an unnamed man was fortunate enough to resolve not one, but two Spritmongers, back-to-back. This awesome display of force allegedly caused his opponent to ... um.. "sh*t his pants".

    A 6/6 regenerator for 3BG, Spiritmonger can safely be described as a "sick beast." Spiritmonger is the only known creature in Magic that has yet caused this affect on an opponent, although some Magic theorists reckon that a Morphling could, under the right circumstances, have a similar effect.

    Brian Kibler, Pro Tour Semifinalist and current favorite to win this years Magic Invitational, commented, "If someone played monger, monger vs me i may SAY i sh*t my pants, but i don't think i actually would."

    I had some deck or other in yu-gi-oh, but I didnt like it really. With magic, you can buy a starter deck and get started straight away. You an also win with lots of wee critters rather than just a few big dragon things. Because of this with yu-gi-oh you have to shell out loads for lots of big cards. I didnt want to so I lost every time - with yu-gi-oh the deck with more powerful creatures nearly always wins.

    With Magic I usually played with either a big green deck with lots of trample etc. or a deck with lots of little creatures. Although I had lots of custom decks my favourite was almost completely based around an artifact starter deck (cant remember which - prelude to the fifth dawn series I think or possibly fifth dawn itself). The creatures had the ability to pass on their strength/defense to other artifacts on the field when they died so my pponent always knew that by dfending himself he was only preparing for a big hit in the future.

    Another good card is platinum angel! it's only 4:4, but as long as it is in play you can't lose and your opponent can't win!

    I'm afraid not, but the life score thing is similar in the two games. I personally don't like yu gi oh.

    As for explaining how it goes... I'd be here all day! you would really need a starter set with a guided game to learn how to play.

    My group worked it out as we went (though I had the greatest general knowledge of the rules). To the date when we stopped, I was still reaching new heights of understanding.

    In all honesty, Magic is to Yu-gi-oh as a candle to the sun.

    Off the top of my head (don't take this as truth, as I can't be arsed searching), I remember:

    Spiritmonger
    3GB
    Creature
    6/6

    G: Spiritmonger's colour becomes the colour of you choice until EOT.
    B: Regenerate Spiritmonger.

    Whenever Spiritmonger does damage to a creature, put a +1/+1 counter on Spiritmonger.

    Just dug out my old decks (hidden from stealing brothers). My favourite (the 'transference' starter deck) was missing though, and I was annoyed to find that the Pressure Cooker Odyssey box was full of yu-gi-oh cards :mad:.

    It certainly was! And they have terrible names as well.

    On the bright side, I found my favourite old combination. The enchantment (black I think) which makes the enemy lose 2 life every time he puts a card in his graveyard. This, coupled with traumatize which makes them disose of the top half of their deck - bye bye 60 life .
