Poking was done with a creature smacking you,

weren't they making an online version that you can play and not have to smell your opponent?

There is an online version, but the fact you have to buy boosters, and the only way they'd send you the cards in physical form is if you collected a whole set, AND it's fugly, meant that I left my one trial game with a bad taste in my mouth.

I stopped playing after the Ravnica block (last year...two years ago?), but I still like to look at the new expansions that come out.  It gives me the itch to pick up some new cards, but our group doesn't get together much anymore.  I just wish they would get all the rules figured out once and for all.  It seems with every expansion, there's always some tweak or modification to something.

I played some with the online version a few years ago and it wasn't too bad.  The main drawback was no physical cards, which isn't all that appealing to me.  One nice tournament format was where everyone buys a starter and a couple boosters and makes a deck from those cards.  It was nice since everyone started on the same level (more or less), and it wasn't as easy to get hosed by someone who had collected masses of online cards.  You had to play a certain number of games per week and once per week you could buy another booster or two to add to your deck.  Not bad if someone is looking to play with minimal investment.

You dont need modo to play online...

Magic Workstation for one allows two lads ot play each other over the interweb.

there are other things such as apprentice.

it just seems to me there are infinitely better ways to spend your money than 100 bucks for a box every 3 months to keep up with the current trends.

It's in open beta. You need to have an account already to play the beta. Dunno if it's still up, because I haven't tried it in two weeks. All you can really do in the beta is draft. I don't want to give too many details about the client, because it is a beta, but the interface feels clunky.

Personally, I think Magic Online is crap to begin with, but that's because you can get the same experience from hitting up FNM, but you actually see (*gasp*) people. It's a good learning tool, I guess, since you really need to understand how the priority and stack in the game works, and it can be complicated to explain all the different phases of combat.

I don't keep playing Magic for the game - it's overly complicated and nearly impossible to introduce new players, I keep playing because of the friends I've made in playing.

Never ever buy a box just to crack open packs. Never even buy packs just because. Always ALWAYS draft. You'll get 3 hours of fun, for $12-15 depending on where you live. If you've never drafted, you're missing out on the funnest way to play magic. Sure, it's more expensive than just buying and opening a box, but considering that sets are designed for limited environment play, 75% of the cards you'll open in a box will never reach a deck. If you need singles for a deck, just buy singles. There's very few times that opening a pack will be more advantageous than just buying singles.

I haven't bought a pack for the sake of opening a pack in close to two years. I always go straight to the rare, and am usually disappointed.

This guy's my new hero.
