It's a pretty good time to get into Magic: The Gathering

Authored By Chris Carter

"I played Magic in the '90s and am just now getting back into it" is a phrase I've heard a lot as I've flocked back to my local hobby stores to re-embrace the game.

Flash back to elementary school. One year at a local summer camp hosted by my county, I met someone who played Magic: The Gathering and had no one to play it with. His solution? To donate half of his 2000 card collection to me so we could play it for three months straight (thanks Evan!).

We made plans to play it again the next year but as it turned out, Evan moved away, and with him, my ability to play the game with anyone locally. I quit for nearly 20 years and only just recently, thanks to a crash-course from two colleagues of mine at a recent junket, I once again had friends to play with and managed to put together 10 standard decks.

Here's what I learned along the way.
