Who blames LRR for the MTG addiction?

Postby DericWadleigh » 29 Mar 2012, 20:15

Who of you out there have been sucked into this endless money sponge known as MTG because of LRR? I know I have and it's been a painfully wonderful experience.

CURSE YOU GRAHAM! CURSE YOU AND YOUR ABILITY TO MAKE GAMES LOOK FUN!

Literally, I started playing Magic because I was tired of missing all the references in LRR videos.

Edit: Also, I play a modern that has four ornithopters and four prototype portals. FEAR MY ENDLESS ORNITHOPTER ONSLAUGHT! Seriously, I've had +20 6/8 ornithopters on the field before because of three tempered steels. Fear it. Fear it a lot. Unless you have a judgement, in which case I fart in your general direction!

I've been playing forever, and have the Force of Wills and ABUR Dual Lands to prove it.

I definitely started following MtG again after It's Magic came out (previously I'd played it back in high school... mostly from cards I'd been given at various points, I think the only cards I ever actually bought was a Portal set, and that was shortly before I gave it up). And that eventually lead into me playing the game again.

I got my first deck after watching It's Magic, and then several of my friends picked it up after they tried playing against me with a friend's horribly outdated decks from the late 90s.

I was already into MtG, but there are other things I can blame LRR for.

I don't, I returned to MTG slightly before I discovered LRR. I blame them for making me start working on a blog about budget decks though.

Meh, if anyone would be to blame I'd blame Wizards for giving LRR the free packs at PAX.

I was into MTG back with like Rath Block, but quit. Now I'm back because of these bastards.

I had a friend trying to get me into it, but it wasn't until LRR started talking about it in the podcasts all the time that I went out and actually bought a deck.

I was clean for nearly a decade, but LRR made it look so good. I just wanted one booster. I thought I could handle it. Now I'm scraping together spare change just to buy a Bump in the Night to get me through.

I played for a little while at the tail end of Mirrodin and through a lot of Kamigawa, then sold off most of my collection and didn't play for a long while.

Then LRR started making Magic references aplenty whilst my housemates were also getting into it in noob-like fashion. First deck I made was a revision of my Kamigawa ninjas, just to really troll them.

I played between Ice Age and Onslaught, then quit because M:tG is expensive and I'm not really very good at it. I've bought some starter decks of Innistrad and M12 now... >.>

I totally resisted the influence of MtG at our local club until LRR got back into it and started including it in jokes, videos and podcasts.

That said, I do love the infectsies. Poison for the win...

Nope! I've been playing since 7th Edition was new! I gave up for a few years after that because I lost my decks (I was still in elementary school at the time), but I got back in right around when Mirrodin was kicking in. Had a bunch of friends who started playing it, and then I HAD to get in. Interest faded again until my last year in High School where a bunch of DIFFERENT friends got in to it. Built up a really really solid Vampire deck (four Bloodchief Ascension, and a whole host of other things to make you hate discarding your cards), and gave up again the following year because I realized that all of my friends were douchebags. And I've been clean for a few years now! No interest in ever playing again, no sirree! Not a chance! Nobody can make me!

I completely blame LRR for my Magic obsession. Well, and as if that wasn't enough, I thought I'd attend just one Wednesday Night Magic to see what the big deal is and made some amazing friends that way. Curse you, LRR!

I have at least 10 pre built decks and I have not played with them once. I blame LRR.
