I actually performed this experiment last month, but have been very busy with real life things and haven’t had the chance to write about it. In my continuing quest go “Go Infinite”, I decided to do some Master’s Edition. This was a relatively poor choices because the packs are more expensive, and there are much fewer money cards to be had –
I started out strong though, actually winning 3 out of my first 4 drafts. My final stats through 10 drafts –

Wins – 3
2nd place – 1
1 win – 2
0 wins – 4
Good cards: 0

My final 6 drafts didn’t go nearly as well, and defeating the odds, I didn’t open one dual land or any other card of any value. So it was definitely a bust. I love the classic cards and had fun for that reason, but all in all the experience was frustrating and just made me think of how luck based everything is. And in fact, I haven’t played any Magic since those events. Money’s been needing to go elsewhere, my time has too – And I was extremely frustrated.

The obligatory welcome post –

Who I am:

I am a lifelong gamer who still loves and believes in the hobby and medium. I am in my 30’s, so I have over 25 years experience in the lifestyle. Most of my best friends are also gamers, and while most of my focus is on video gaming, I still have a passion and interest in the traditional game formats.

Video Game Systems I Currently Own:

Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, and a PC. I also spend a lot of time with my friend Brian who has an Xbox 360 – and Co-op    gaming is our focus. I am also an emulation fanatic.

What I Play:

Up until recently, I was a big MMO player, with many years invested in UO, EQ, SWG, and World of Warcraft. While I have taken a break from MMO play, many of my friends have not. My finger is on the pulse.

I am also a big fan of turn based strategy games, such as the Warlords, Heroes of Might and Magic, and Fire Emblem series.

I love classic arcade games – shooters, scrollers, and the like.

CO-OP, CO-OP, CO-OP. Playing with my friends is important, any game that offers Co-Op I probably will have read up on at the very minimum.

What I hope to Do With This Blog:

1. For personal reasons, I like to use it as a journal. I have a poor memory at times, and I forget what games I have played/haven’t played, and my thoughts on them at times. I hope this will serve as a memory jogger.

2. I have a lot of opinions on the state of the industry/hobby. I hope to use this as a forum to get some of my ideas out.

3. Making additional gaming contacts and meeting other enthusiasts is also a plus, I like to hear other opinions and thoughts on the topics.

That’s what I am coming from, and what you can expect. Thanks for checking out the blog.
