Talk:Magic: The Gathering
Well, I'm spent for now. I'm sure someone else can pick this up and rewrite anything they're not completely happy with, feel free to do so. --Myomoto 21:52, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
- I'm gonna rewrite the 'objective of the game' section sometime, I'll break it up in a 'rules' section instead, it's a bit mumble jumbled right now of both being an example of play and rules. --Myomoto 18:49, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
- I'll make a guide to reading a Magic card as well at some point. --Myomoto 22:35, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
- Still more to come, don't take this as an exclusion, feel free to join. --Myomoto 17:06, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Why does it look like Richard Garfield is in a Pokemon card in that picture? --Dunefag 22:37, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
- It's a card from the Unhinged expansion, it's a joke card, and it is not an officially used design. Notice the silver frame of the card, meaning it is banned from all tournaments. Ever. --Myomoto 22:38, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
The Stack section could use a little rewrite. It isn't mana-effects that ignore the stack, it's mana-source effects and/or Land effects (you can counter, say, a mana-elf ability, as far as I know). In addition, there are two events that I know of that circumvent the stack. Paying a cost doesn't use the stack (such as using mana, sacrificing a creature, discarding a card, and so on), nor does Morph adhere to the stack. Madness can cause some weirdness when part of a stack, but that's a bit too advanced to talk about on the wiki.
- Nope, I'm pretty you can't counter tapping a Llanowar Elves for mana for example, all activated abilities that produce mana are mana abilities like those found on lands, and you are correct about morph, but I'm trying to write this as an introductory to the games rules, we could start up an advanced rules section later. But yes, the current article is a mess, it is very far from done, and I'm not sure I'll be done with it before a while, but feel free to add in stuff if you've got a good idea of something to write. --Myomoto 12:03, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
- 406.1. A mana ability is either (a) an activated ability without a target that could put mana into a player's mana pool when it resolves or (b) a triggered ability without a target that triggers from a mana ability and could produce additional mana. A mana ability can generate other effects at the same time it produces mana.
- 406.4. A mana ability can be activated or triggered. Mana abilities are played and resolved like other abilities, but they don't go on the stack, so they can't be countered or responded to. --Anonymous 19:39, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
"Magic: The Gathering (or just "Magic") is a collectible card game plagiarized by Richard Garfield from Yu-Gi-Oh, and introduced to neckbeards everywhere in 1993" Is this really necessary? I got a good laugh, but it's simply trolling. --Anonymous 20:12, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
- Of course it is! --Myomoto 20:19, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
"The three archetypes mix and match, meaning that it is possible to be a Johnny-Timmy player, aiming to make some kind of combo that'll give you a million life and an army of 100/100 creatures or some other kind of stupid nonsense." This is the best post on any internet ever. Well played. Aegis 12:50, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Shouldn't this have at least some funny images besides lol azns?--Seventhseal 22:56, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
as someone who appreciates the game, it does have its flaws. i might write up a section about the shit that sucks like the reserved list, cost, asshole players etc. good idea?--Nicol bolas (talk) 02:52, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
- Go for it. Other pages list flaws just fine, nobody's going to fault you for it here unless you start bitching about something that's just personal opinion. -- Triacom (talk) 07:00, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
- Honestly, I'm not sure myself. All I know about Ink-Eyes is that she occasionally gets porn and gets jerked off on the Ratfolk threads every so often. She doesn't even really have that much lore going for her. I just keep it there for posterity's sake. --Fortunade (talk) 16:45, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
- I just did a Qwant search. "Ink-eyes" is a legendary rat from Kamigawa. It is mentioned on this page and literally nowhere else on the internet. Looking at the artwork, you can't even tell that it's supposed to be female, or a rat, or alive at all.

Be wary of any changes made by 22.214.171.124 - he's shitting up the article with his personal views on wotc, and might render game mechanics descriptions inaccurate or plain wrong. --Taufag (talk) 08:00, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
