I just got back into MTGO after leaving it for several years. I miss playing online CCG's and this one has the most support. Plus, I can get quite a few cards on the cheap (something I learned too late the last time I played).

I was surprised that I couldn't find a BGG clan there. Would there be any interest in forming one?

EDIT: Forgot to add that my username in MTGO is AxonDomini. I'm a casual/fun player, not hardcore tournament style player.

If you don't mind me asking, how do you get them cheap?

I would join and play casually, but last time I checked, MTGO didn't run on Mac's, so I can't play. Hopefully they'll wise up and let me give them money one of these days.

In general, non-mythic rares are cheaper to much cheaper on magic online than in paper. There are a number of bots that will trade you cards for tickets; without endorsing either of them, you can see some example prices at http://www.mtgotraders.com/ or http://cardbotmtgo.com/

That's awesome. Thanks very much for the info.

Hey Jeff,

I just got back into MTGO myself and while I enjoy playing, I am sick of random matchups and I'm looking for some buddies to play casual games with.

It seems like every other match I play, it's some lame netdeck, or the person I'm playing against concedes, disconnects, or simply stops responding if things aren't going their way...

I'm probably about 50% 'Johnny', 40% 'Timmy', and 10% 'Spike' in my gaming - I like trying to get 'bad' cards to work, and just having a good time!

Anyway, I'll be sure to look you up online. My user name is jormungand in case you beat me to it.

Cheers,
Jason

If you could be a member of multiple clans I'd happily join a BGG one, but as is I am a rather devout member of the Limited Resources clan. If you just want a clan where people probably won't be jerks, I'd recommend that one, though as you might guess from the title, it is limited focused (but I've certainly found people there for standard testing and what not).

Yep, that's it exactly. You can get commons for about 2 cents each and uncommons for 5 to 10 cents. Rares and mythic Rares vary wildly depending on popularity and their usefulness in standard. Also, if you stick to classic/legacy formats it's cheaper since cards that have rotated out of standard drop in price significantly when that happens.

Awesome! I'll definitely add you to my buddy list as it sounds like we have very similar approaches to the game.

I hope to add both of you guys, Jeff and Jason as Buddies.

I'm half casual, half "wants to do well someday"...

Excellent. I've been too busy to log on for the past few days, but hopefully that will change shortly.

I've been meaning to join the limited resouces clan. Good to see there's some BGG members on there.
