Quote from TempestEyeMagic Online is a great way to play Magic. Paper magic is a great way to socialize. That's the difference.
Quote from NerosI would say online since you can play anything you want and the cards are generally around half the price of paper versions. Also you can redeem them once you get a complete set if you decide you want some paper cards to play with for casual or something.
Quote from Ooms FarlowHow much would you say you spend a month on MTGO?
Quote from the_cardfatherThis question IMO seems to always hinge on 1) How easy is it for you to get to the LGS, 2) How progressive is the LGS on running tournaments et.
I can't even commit to making the pre-release this weekend, and regular friday nights from 7-> whenever doesn't work for me.
I prefer Paper, but my circumstances dictate I play online.
Quote from jonnybgood23For your consideration, having a real Jace, the Mind Sculptor will always be worth more than having a digital one. Look at any of the Alpha/Beta cards. Those all have appreciated in value. A digital card is just a digital card. But I will concede that Magic Online is great for drafting at any time (and provides the hope of redeeming a paper set).
Quote from WingedkagoutiA paper card can lose value due to being played, digital cards will always keep their quality. You have to take good care of your paper cards for them to keep their value.
Quote from RCarlysleIf you play a budget deck, or a Pro Deck.. they are all weak in the eyes of Coca Cola.
Quote from Philonus »Counter spells stop everything. It's the condom Trojan dreams of making. But like condoms, if you don't have one, you still keep on playing and take the risk. Most of us wouldn't be here if this wasn't a fact.
Quote from Gaea"s RegentPichoro, try maximizing the window...
Quote from Hardcore HeathenUnfortunately, you're still playing online with people you don't know and will probably never see again. If you're like me, Magic is an excuse to spend time with friends. I enjoy sitting down at the table, cracking jokes, and interacting with the other person. MODO is more like...Starcraft. Yeah, you're sort of playing with other people. Sort of.
Quote from HolyCorrect me if I am wrong, cause I am just learning about magic online...but...
Paper magic = tournaments like SCG and TCG Player = cash payouts, plus you have grand prix, and pro tours.
Online magic - you earn tix, and packs. No grand prix, no pro tours, no 5k tournaments
Right or wrong?
Quote from ZodarAnd don't forget skill level. Some are able to keep to strictly playing limited and still make a profit on average.
Quote from Justinskym51I'm confused... People are mentioning MTGO cards are so much cheaer than paper cards;however, a quick comparison between Cardbotmtgo.com and Trollandtoad.com yields little difference at all...
Primeval titan MTGO: 38.99 tickets, paper: $39.99
Sun Titan MTGO: 5.25 tickets, paper: $5.99
Mystical Tutor MTGO: 4.50 tickets, paper: $4.49
Jace Beleren MTGO: 6.99 tickets, paper: $7.99
Am I missing something here? 1 ticket = $1 correct?
Quote from Xander CrewsThe cheaper cards come from cards that arent staples as alot of times you can get a $3-4 card for 50 cents online.
