We were considering going to Banff for one day, and the menu looks great. Thanks for the suggestion!

Learning Magic for an anniversary is certainly unique. Most couples just do ballroom dancing.

I dunno, Ancestral Recall - draw three cards for 1 island - kinda tops it (and Time Walk is pretty up there: take an extra turn for 1 blue and 1 colorless mana.)

Well in terms of creatures, we know that the big ones in the earlier editions often came with a downside, or were too expensive (Lord of the Pit, Juzam Djinn, 90% of the legends in Legends.) Magic has since become better about creatures, we know.

No matter how strong of a deck you build, someone else’s contradictory deck (or some new expansion set) can easily waste you.

If there was such a thing as an invincible deck, everyone would play it. And for a while that happened: Necropotence decks were all over the tournament scene at one point (with only a handful of decks dubbed "anti-Necro" which tended to be fast red decks.) Nobody really wants one deck to be all-powerful forever because it would get boring.

If you're going to start you need a starter deck. 60 cards is the standard size for a playable deck.

They lost my attention with Ice Age with all the new rules, and abilities.

Well you'll be pleased to know that many abilities from that era are gone (such as banding,) but there are plenty of new abilities in its place, so...you'd probably still lose attention.

You got LEGENDS instead of LEGIONS!? That's crazy. Did you try ordering more Legions in the hope lightning strikes twice? :)

You'd be surprised how many people would be happy to duel a newbie, even just for fun.

Just because I'm an old-school player I can only assume I'm Vintage.

*looks at the list*

I've never even heard of these games. Even the #1, Gloomhaven, is a mystery to me...

Vampire.

I've tried a sliver deck, but I didn't have enough multi-colour mana sources and it got way too fiddly.
