Welcome to a casual player’s blog dedicated to enjoying and experiencing Magic: The Gathering. Currently Casual Magic is piloted by two authors Norm and Rick.
Basically I wanted to start an online communication related to Magic. It is very easy for me to get fully immersed in this game and this is just another extension of this hobby. I find Magic to be completely relaxing and entertaining. As it provides a great challenging and creative outlet for me.
I started playing when Guildpact from Ravnica Block was the current set. So I’ve spent most of my time building standard decks, playing FNM, drafting and playing around the kitchen table. My favorite format is limited sealed deck as I like the challenge of building something new on the fly. As I stay with the game I expect I’ll get into extended and eventually legacy formats.
I enjoy playing all colors and here are two of my favorite creatures:
I play magic both casually and competitively in Columbus Ohio. My friend Norm invited me to share my thoughts and experiences on his Casual Magic blog once or twice a week. I have played Magic since Onslaught Block, my friends introduced me to both MtG and Poker during my freshman year at The Ohio State University and I’ve enjoyed both immensely. I feel MtG is, with its blend of poker and chess, one of the most mentally challenging games on the market. I’m no professional Magic player and I’m no professional writer but I have lots of fun playing this game I hope you do too.
I enjoy the limited formats of Magic the most: drafting, sealed, pack wars and Cubing. I play constructed as well but only when there’s no drafting to be done. My favorite creature is Exalted Angel, my favorite fomat is Team Drafting and my favorite color is Counterspell.
