First of all, sorry for the delay, my internet wasn't working, then I went off on a week-long boy scout trip called NOAC (National Order of the Arrow Conference), then my interenet wasn't working again.
My personal favorite, hopescrusader with Noggles:
The most popular, TheGutterPup with Crab Mill
The most competitive TivrocSaig with Kobolds
Everybody else did a really good job congrats!
It was the summer of 2010. I had a choice to go to the annual boy scout Camp Geronimo summer camp, or go to a wedding for my stepdads cousin who I barely see. I choose summer camp. This means that my mom's cousin, Angeline, and her boyfriend, Michael, would take care of me beforehand, because my family would leave for the wedding before I went to camp. So, I was at their apartment, and I walk into their game room. At the time I had never heard of Magic: the Gathering, so I saw what looked like a bunch of Yu-Gi-Oh cards, except different. I asked Michael about it, and he said he would teach me how to play later. Later turned out to be Christmas, as he kept on forgetting to bring the cards to teach me. Well, Angeline's brother's girlfriend's brother Evan was also there, so Michael taught both of us. The first game I played sucked! I used a black-red deck, and I drew just red cards with black lands. I finally managed to get out a mountain and a 1/1 goblin. The next turn, I chucked the goblin at Michael with Goblin Grenade. Evan went and Armaggedon-ed all the lands. The next turn, I drew a black card I could of played-if all my lands weren't destroyed....Of course it was just my luck. It wasn't long before Michael finished both of us off. What frustrated me was that I had a Volcanic Dragon and Goblin King in my hand. Anyways, it wasn't surprising when Michael and Angeline's Christmas gift to me was a box of magic cards. It was a deck builder's toolkit. Evan and I were sorting through the cards when I noticed a card with a red expansion symbol. Michael explained black: common, silver: uncommon, and gold: rare, so when I saw this, I asked Michael about it and he explained the mythic concept to me. The card, as you may have guessed was.....Obsidian Fireheart!!! I promptly built a burn deck based off of Obsidian Fireheart.
Later, when I was playing Magic, I noticed that I dealt a ton of early damage, then dead after my opponent was down to barely any health. So, I turned it into a burn-control deck. While I was playing the deck, I had two mountains and two islands. I realized I couldn't play Obsidian Fireheart, because the mana cost was 1RRR, not 2RR. I then reallized that for my account, I made a mistake.
Then, when the Knights vs. Dragons Duel Decks came out, I bought it, then made some adjustments, making it a mountain-based dragon deck.
I want you guys to post your deck that you have in real life that has your first mythic rare. I have no way of knowing if you're telling the truth, so I can only hope you have integrity. Because of the delay, I will give you until Wednesday. After this contest, the routine will be back to normal. Starts Friday, ends Monday.
http://www.mtgdeckbuilder.net/Decks/ViewDeck/88378 It was this one. I've now disbanded it and use Sorin in a different deck that works a lot better. But this was the first Mythic I've ever gotten. Got him out of a Fatbox as well. [Report]
Here's mine. I first got into Magic in the Shards of Alara block and bought the pre-made deck that had to do with Esper and forgot about it as I built my own decks. Then in a m10 pack I pulled a Platinum Angel and thought I should build a Artifact Deck and found the old deck. For the last few years I've totally reworked that deck into this. http://mtgdeckbuilder.net/Decks/ViewDeck/218357 [Report]
First thing I did when I started playing magic was buying a display case of Scars of Mirrodin. The two friends of mine who started playing with me bought a different display for themselves. One bought a Shards of Alara display, and another one a zendikar display. He also opened up an obsidian fireheart, and he also built his first deck around it. Mono red elemental aggro/burn, Bant Exalted, and Mono Blue Control / Artifact was what we played at first.
Glad you like my Noggles, They are my second favorite weird creature type right behind Lammasu, I would've done them but there is only one... So I went with Noggles because there is actually a handful of them. [Report]
When I started i got the white half deck from tenth edition and didn't use much other then that then as zendikar rolled around I got back in and bought the blue red zendikar starter and the booster pack within contained a chandra and a foiled sorin, being gullible as I was both of these were off my hands within the hour for small stack of commons and a rare that hadn't quite seen its time yet, something called stoneforge mystic. I'm still laughing today about that. [Report]
liches mirror was my first mythic, and then ob nixilis the fallen, i had both of those in some crappy lifedeck before i traded them away. the first mythics that are still in decks that ive got now are probably elspeth tirel and liliana vess, both of whom i got in a deck builders tool kit. [Report]
