Back to an Old Friend

Stopped by a local comic and game shop and decided to build a new Magic deck. Went through their commons and just grabbed every green, blue, or artifact card that caught my attention. I should probably unpack my old collection, just in case it hasn't melted over the summers.

It's been a while since I played Magic; all I remember is that I had a white deck designed to give massive amounts of HP.

I played a Stompy deck: Get hordes of cheap, efficient green creatures out very quickly. Everyone at the old card shop knew what was going to happen when I started doing math in my head: Overrun: Your creatures gain +3/+3 and trample until end of turn.

Ah, token deck?

I had a couple token-improving cards, I remember. Think I had a creature that gave all tokens +1/+1 and Leyline of the Meek.

Just to clarify, I only had those cards, I didn't use them; they would have been pointless in my deck.

Actually, not tokens. Just really efficient, expendable, interchangeable green creatures. Don't know what era you were in, but when I first played with that deck, tokens weren't quite as easy to set up to efficiently spray out.

Think it was called... Ravnica? Something like that.

I bought a green-white deck first, then I decided I didn't like it and switched to my white healing deck thing, using a couple of the white cards from my first deck.

Wow, it's been like... 10 years since I've played that. I mostly used blue with counter spells and sometimes creatures with phasing or shadow, though I did have an artifact deck once.

Yes, the whole deck was artifacts (and land, of course).

Looks like I stopped playing near the end of '99. The latest set that I recognize the symbol for was released in Sep '99 (Mercadian Masques), though I think the last that I had purchased were Urza's Destiny.
