Magic: The Gathering: 9th Edition: Card Game Review

Magic: The Gathering is a card game of strategy, skill, cool cards and dueling wizards. Use your cards to fight battles with fireballs, sea serpents, orcs, elves and fierce dragons to see who can reduce their opponent's life points to zero and prove that they're the strongest wizard. You can even collect and trade Magic cards.

Magic: The Gathering Card Types

The cards in magic are divided into different types that you can use against your opponent.
  • Land - These cards provide you with magical energy called "Mana" to power your other cards.
  • Creatures - Ogres and trolls and dragons - oh my! These cards are fierce beasts you can use to battle your enemy.
  • Sorceries, Instants and Interrupts - These cards blast your opponent with fire and lightning to cause damage, power-up creatures and unleash other one-shot effects.
  • Enchantments and Artifacts - These cards create long-lasting power-ups to boost your creatures and your strategies.
  • Equipment - These cards are magical weapons and armor that power-up your creatures and don't go away if your creature gets destroyed.
  • Lots of Magic cards have strange powers and can change the way the game is played. It's up to you to balance out your cards and make combos to win.

    Magic: The Gathering: Ninth Edition!

    The Magic: The Gathering card game has been around for years and released the new 9th Edition set in the summer of 2005. The biggest change in this set is that Equipment cards are in it. If you're a veteran player, this set is full of cards you'll already have. But, this set is great for new players cuz it re-releases all of the basic cards you need to play the game, including some classics like the Hypnotic Spectre and Kird Ape! There are also five new Theme Decks to get new players started, we review them right here.

  • Magic: The Gathering Strategies

    You can storm your opponent with huge creatures, or destroy his land so he can't use cards against you. You can even make a huge wall and attack your opponent with flying creatures. It's up to you, and that's where the real fun comes in cuz there are hundreds of Magic cards with dozens of powers to choose from. You build a deck of the cards you want to use and prepare for battle.

    Can't wait for the game, anyone else think it may be better than CoD and Battlefield? I was gonna give a PC Gamer link on the new "Operator System," it also gives links to the gameplay trailer and a really cool hands on, but then KW bot informed me that i can't (which is completely ridiculous and incredibly annoying).  If you wanna check it out go to the PC Gamer site, I think its still on their homepage.
