In Topic: Magic The Gathering vs Yugioh, what is better?

I mean sure if you play MTG like you play stocks then its good but for actually playing the game its pretty bad.

 

YGO has rare and valuable cards that you can collect but in MTG those cards are staples that you need in your deck and basicly required lands.

 

It's not bad because it's a COLLECTIBLE card game. Half of it all is collecting. As a collector, if my collectibles are going to dip in value, being worth less than I ever paid for them, then there's not much point in actually collecting them. At that point, I might as well just be playing a digital collectible card game. I mean, I suppose it's only natural to look out for number 1, but you dick over collectors and half of MTG as CCG in the process of making it a little more affordable to play. It's hypocritical, really.

 

What specific lands are you even talking about? There are few ridiculously priced lands that have no budget alternatives outside of Legacy and Vintage.

The price of the cards?

 

Im not even talking about standard which can be compared to ygo.

 

Tried building a Commander deck? Some of the card prices are beyond ridiculous. Modern and Legacy also cost you the same as a small car.

 

This wouldn't be a problem with more reprins of the desired cards. Then again depending on your perspective and on how much you have invested that may be exactly what you desire but it sure makes it so much harder to get into.

I mean these supply issues are the reason frontier is even a thing.

 

It's a non-issue as long as standard and modern are a thing, and you don't need the expensive cards to do well in EDH (Commander.) EDH isn't even a competitive format, so having super optimized decks is even less needed.

 

Modern is absolutely not unusually expensive to build for. As in any other CCG, there are budget competitive decks that you can choose to run (such as burn) so you don't even need to be running the really expensive decks.

 

Legacy and Vintage are ridiculously expensive to build for, but there are at least 3 other formats that you can choose to be competitive in and Vintage is a fucking unbalanced joke anyways.

 

MTG is a Collectible Card Game. Collecting is half of the entire thing it has going. Destroying the value of its really old cards dicks over the collectors who've put in so much effort into getting those expensive cards. It undermines half of MTG's entire point. The current arrangement of multiple formats is an ideal compromise amongst the newest, budget players and the oldest, wealthiest collectors and then some.

Hello there! Been a while. Is this possible to be rendered? https://4.bp.blogspo...e-save-game.jpg

Hey, your link redirects to a page of wallpapers, not the specific image you want used. You should always reupload images to imgur and use that direct link. A lot of other sites redirect or block direct links.

 

I don't really make anything anymore, so I can't personally take this, but I just thought I should point that out.

You still open.

 

I am, I just tend to forget that I am.
