Magic: The Gathering is a good game

Post by Fervor on Sat Aug 23, 2014 6:02 pm

It's a much better TCG than Yu-Gi-Oh! will ever be.

Reasons why:

1. You can play it with or without strategy

Both strategic players and players that don't care can enjoy this TCG. Blue and Control add strategy while Red and Aggro take it out.

2. Great story

Magic: The Gathering has an entire multiverse of different planes, where planeswalkers go to to duel and do other stuff. Each plane has its own deep story inside of it, and so does each planeswalker.

Yu-Gi-Oh is about people battling in a card game, besides the first few generations it doesn't have too much story.

3. No anime

Magic: The Gathering doesn't need an anime, unlike Yu-Gi-Oh, to promote the game.

4. Older target audience

MtG contains more mature and dark themes, Yu-Gi-Oh is about what seems cool to early teenagers. MtG's black color even sparked controversy.

5. Color Psychology is deep

White, Blue, Black, Red, and Green are not just colors and types of mana, they embody the personality of the planeswalker using the mana.

6. Complexity

Complexity is what I value these days, simple seems to be getting overused and making people dumb. MtG is a complex game with intricate inner workings. YGO is simpler, but tries to be complex with tributes, positions, trap cards, and numerous rarities with a few being cosmetic (like Ghost Rare).

7. Instants

In response to this reason, a Yu-Gi-Oh player taps two islands to cast Counterspell.

"God damn it!"
- MtG Player

8. Instants (again)

In response to this reason, the same Yu-Gi-Oh player casts Redirect, making this about trap cards.

"Will you stop?!"
- MtG Player

Trap cards are better than instants because you have to cast them then activate them instead of just being able to cast them at any time.

9. Instants (for real this time)

Instants are better than trap cards because you don't have to set them, you can use it when you need it.

And you can surprise someone or counterspell.

Instants bring a disruption and tactical front to MtG.

10. Cohesiveness

MtG manages to hold itself together for more than 20 years. The rarities, sets, and lore hold up. YGO manages to mess up all three of these with too many rarities, frantic reprints, and bad lore.
