Uh oh.. dork alert!
Glad to see I'm not the only one who dabbled in the magical arts as a child.
yeah, i went through that phase.
one of my favorite memories is my friend taught me how to play and i just kind of randomly picked some cards based on the picture, for whatever reason i really liked the mountain goat which was 1/1 mountainwalk. i just beefed that thing up and trounced him my first time playing, he was so pissed (he was playing a red burn deck).
also, getting your Counterspell countered always sucked
