Things you love about Magic: The Gathering

(I'm not completely sure if this is the place for this topic)

I've made this topic for two reasons 1: to see how many mtg fans are an in this community and 2: to see what people love about the game.

So make a list with your favorite color, card, character, planeswalker (from a story perspective and a play perspective), your favorite deck, and anything you just have to say about why you love they game. Here's mine

Color: Red
Favorite card: it's a hard decision but for now probably Nekusar the mind razor
favorite character(s): it's a tie between Gideon Jura and Sorin markov
favorite planeswalker(s):
Story wise: Gideon and Sorin
Gameplay wise: tibalt the fiend blooded
Deck(s): either my Nekusar edh deck or my UG morph deck
I love every aspect of mtg but my favorite thing about it is by far and away its expansive lore.

Also feel free to discuss anything else here pertaining to mtg.

That the game is actually about using your cards to win and doesn't force you to pick a certain deck type in order to win.

I'm looking at you, Yu-Gi-Oh.

I have a friend who's really into MTG and he introduced me to it a few weeks ago. It's pretty alright, but not my cup of tea. I mostly like the artwork on the cards.

Original jace is a nice choice, I use him wherever I can, a old biddy of mine used to run a Boros deck that was a beast, any Allstars in yours?

I don't think so.

I still play it though, just a lot less often than I used to! XD

Also, my favorite color is White, but I haven't played enough to have a favorite card or deck.

But I love the griffins and that lion race that the White cards have.

Honestly I can't play as much as I used to either, being responsible can be a drag sometimes XD

Izzet mad scientist over here. My deck is 150 cards, because the best thing about Magic to me is the official ruling for maximum deck size: "As long as you can shuffle it with two hands."
I have a few cards that I love, including the previously mentioned Hypersonic Dragon. One of my favorite cards is Wild Ricochet, because it's about the most disgusting thing you can have happen to your combo. Having a 150-card deck, I could probly talk for days about my favorite cards, so I'll just say "all five of my Krakens" and leave it at that.
