Thanks for that, Rob. Can't make another ASL-sized commitment to something like MtG, but will definitely see if I can play this one at the club some time.Try Mage Wars some time. It is simply better in every facet of gaming than MTG. It's not collectable, you play on a board, so it's extremely tactical, deliciously so! You build your spell book any way you want, you even get two spell books that hold the cards in the base set, you can choose any 2 cards to play per turn, so you're never screwed by a bad draw. A base set is $39, but if you buy 2 sets you can play a 4 player game with 2 teams or a 4 player free-for- all. Each Mage has their own unique abilities and they release new Mages with great cards for each of the mages about every 3 months.
I consider it the ASL of the fantasy world, because of the level of strategy involved. The combat system is easy, but makes a lot of sense. And the creatures, conjugations and enchantments that you cast and move around on the board adds to the tactical level of play.
I cannot recommend Mage Wars highly enough.
