I used to be way into Magic: The Gathering. I didn’t have a whole lot of cards; I didn’t have the money to buy them, but I used to play as much as I could. More than that, I sorted and shuffled and thought about Magic, and that’s where most of my love for it comes from.
I spent hours and hours putting together decks back then (some of which barely got played). The theming of decks was always more fun to me than the strategizing. As a result, most of my decks were designed less around winning and more around sticking to a theme: the bird-drake-dragon deck, the goblins-and-fiery-destruction deck, the zombie-and-rat-apocalypse deck. And even if I always lost, I had fun doing it.
The last time I played was in the eighth grade. So, yeah, it’s been a while.
