I've heard stories of people getting/owning a Black Lotus back in the day when they were kids, but then had to either 1. Throw them away because of their parents or 2. Give them to a friend, family-member, etc. Oh, how I would love to show them this video! Great stuff.

Narrator tries to come off as witty and snidely, but actually sounds like a generic old stuck-up fart that prefers a telegraph to a cellphone or e-mail. Despite my interest in content, i won't subscribe and i'll make sure to not watch videos from this channel that come up in search.

i played MTG for a little while and never actually won a game i totally enjoyed playing MTG I only had one great moment in a 4 player battle where the game had gotten down to the very last rounds and every player was low on health and i had little to protect me from the next attack but on the next attack phase i played an Instant "Inferno" and would you know it dealt 6 damage to all creatures and players and i killed not only myself but all creatures and players in the game at once \☺/

I played magic one time, that's all it took for me to understand how stupid the game was. Once the government crashes, these cards will be worth less then toilet paper.

Long time ago I remember playing this game with my friend Ben. First time I ever played we ended up playing for about 8 hours. That includes him teaching me how to play. Anyway, I remember he had this one card that pissed me off. It was called the Sengire Vampire* spelling* it allowed him to resurrect one of his cards from the graveyard. Now Idk how rare of a card it was but I can imagine that each player has their favorites and what they’re willing to pay. Fun game tho I really enjoyed it.
Thomas Hassler (6 months ago)
Seriously the level of sarcasm in this video is so inappropriate for a video targeted at an audience that km o for a fact this video is just full of shit. If you have the money to buy these cards you r rather a collected who will never play them or a vintage master looking to score the next big win and chunk or winning change u get. Wtf YouTube use your filters for fucking once.

Wow didn't expect at this era of 2017 this game is still surviving and going strong. Reminds me of my childhood playing this at recess during school days. Oh boy that was year ad 1996.. Spend too much money on Magic cards and Tamiya cars.. Btw Black Lotus was the No.1 card. alpha and Beta version and it cost around $300 at that time. But I was playing with full complete deck Revise version.. Keep it up collectors.

Daniel James Dolor (1 year ago)
In my opinion, virtual inventory such as LoL and DotA skins are more worth it than these piece of paper. i mean i didnt spend this much on MTG but i did purchase some Elder Deep Fiend and Decimator of Provinces.
Eclipse Solar (1 year ago)
Danes Zalor yeah but with virtual inventory like skins for LoL or DotA you dont have good value in the long run cause with TCgs in general you can trade the cards you do need for cards that you dont and eventualy sell the cards when you get tired of playing.But with LoL and DotA if you buy a skin or champion and end up not liking it you cant get your money back or switch it over to something that will be more of use to you

im just saying that its easier to understand than magic im not trying to bash on the card game, if ive spent alot of time and learned it, it would probably spent a lot of time on it.
Nako (2 years ago)
Sorry i'm a thirteen year old kid who really enjoys magic along with all my other friends lol. And saying that they "have no life" because they play a card game is pretty stupid.
KurtIsCool (2 years ago)
kids play it not adults with no life
Nako (2 years ago)
Um, MTG was the first CCG as it came out in 1993 and pokemon came out in 1999. And you're saying that an entire card game is better than the other because it has a TV show, you're not even going into why the GAME itself is better in any way. Like, give me a reason mechanics wise.
KurtIsCool (2 years ago)
+Nako Pokemon has been out longer than this magic stuff and it has its own TV show.

Are you actually fucking kidding me? You make a video targeted at a specific audience then you start off by saying "For a card game that's protected the virginity of many and kept so many bound to their parents basement" then you proceed to show boogie2988. Honestly, fuck you. I'm glad that this video has more dislikes than likes because you are a cunt who has absolutely no talent whatsoever and is stuck making top 10 videos because you can't make quality content and can't get a job because you're so fucking lazy. Fuck you, i honestly hope that you fucking die a horrible flaming death you cunt.

Nobody likes to hear a kid who is most likely under the 13 year old age requirement to use youtube that record gameplay of a shit game with a camera.

You talk about these cards really sarcastically, as if you think that they're not good. Every single one of the cards you listed here are extremely broken. That's why they're so expensive. The black lotus is so expensive because you can get 3 turns ahead of your opponent. If you happen to draw 2 now you're 6 turns ahead. Mox gems are the same thing. You can get multiple turns ahead of your opponent using any of these cards. Time vault is so expensive because people were using voltaic key, an artifact that lets you untap an artifact for 1 mana, to basically get infinite turns. If you actually played the game you would get why they're so expensive and you would understand how good and even broken they are, instead of saying "oh wow you get 3 mana on the first turn yayy soooo good"
