Its because of the tarot deck that many churche people who didnt bother to look at more than the pictures assumed it wasnt a game but an archetype system that dealt in the spirit world

I used to play card games like pokemon and yugioh. The only reason i played was to escape life. I started getting rid of my stuff and i feel so much happier. Card games can be bad to be honest. Takes away time you could learning something better or spending time with your family. It depends on how you play it and to be honest most people i see in card shops don't seem happy.

I was a player and I remember getting very frustrated with the whole thing. Basically my mom didn’t think cards were a good toy for me. It’s looked at as something stupid for the money she had. I would never have enough money for them myself. The few cards I got ahold of were from 94 95 time era. Usually cheap ones that I got from the only other kid in the whole school who had magic. I want to say that kids in the 90’s were different. A lot of bullying and labeling and violence. I was apart of that on both ends but specifically being a nerd and getting into nerdy things. I got made fun of and lost all my cards the first time I tried to bring them to school. I learned my lesson. So that was such a bad taste for the game.

Magic back in the day was something you played in the back of a smokey room of a very seedy game store. The smell alone was horrid. The only thing worse then that was a PTQ I played in Maryland where it was 80 degrees and no A/C. Oh god the smell. Now everything is clean and smell is so gone.

Someday when I'm 90 years old, I'll try to explain this whole Christianity culture to my grandkids. They'll probably think I made the whole thing up.

Its not Christ that is the problem. Its religiosity... People make up their own rules and rituals over things they do not understand. They are guilty of the things they accuse others of. Jesus said "love your neighbor, do good to those who persecute you". He did not say force people to bend to your limited understanding and superstitions.... there is a big reason the Bible says "lean not on your own understanding" Its just sad when people who claim to have faith act like a card game has more power than God. There is an entire community of these religious zealots that fear over faith.

WHAT THE HELL guy haha i stayed watching this just because it was entertaining watching you cry about some lame shit only nerds and gothic kids enjoyed playing lol and yeah the 90s were way better but not because of magic cards and certainly not because of d.a.d gay shit haha.They were better because of shit like celebrity death match, tupac, mike Tyson & drugs not being so cut up with crap. THAT'S WHAT BACK IN THE DAY WAS ABOUT.now burn ur cards kid no more gay time

I clicked on this video expecting to laugh at some idiots and possibly convince more people I worship Satan just for shock value Then I stayed cuz you talk sense And what causes people to freak out about that shit is the fact that Religion is bullshit See a skull or a pentagram, maybe a demon or monster and refuse to see past it because religion corrupts See a card called "Dark Master of the Abyss" and refuse to see past the name because theyre so narrow minded

1994 in high school, my friend's mormon parents thought i was the devil trying to corrupt their kid with a card game.. he tried to tell them it was innocent but once they saw Demonic Tutor was a Sorcery card I was banned from their house for life.. .LMAO Just remembered we had some jocks throwing shit at us one day after school when we were playing in the cafeteria. What they (and I) didn't know was my friend Bo was a black belt in Aikido and Kempo.. so when he threw it back at them and they got in his face.. let's just say it didn't end well for them.. and no one picked on the magic dorks any more :)

This video is like MTG rap, only instead of rhyming, you have to tell a story using a random assortment of old magic cards. You don't know what's coming until you flip a card and then have half a second to fit the card into the story.....freaking awesome.

I used to think Rudy was just some jerkoff buying up cards so no one else could play with them. Seeing him get all emotional about the old days changed my mind.

I went to a baptist church in kansas when I was like 8 years old for a while, this was around 1999. My mom figured if she sent me to a Christian church on Thursday and then baptist on Sunday I would get the evil out of me. Fuck that, I knew she just wanted an excuse to get rid of us. Anyways, the baptist church, some of the preachers talked about how POKEMON are evil, that it made children want to hurt animals and capture them, this was a 13 yr old preaching to a bunch of younger kids. Good lord... I ended up becoming agnostic now, I'd rather have my native american religion than that shit.

I graduated HS in 1996.  I don't think anyone knew I played magic except for my best friends.  It would have been social suicide.  It really was something you wanted to keep a secret.  I don't remember teachers or the religious making a big deal about it in southern California.  I think people were aware of supposedly satanic music like megadeth and ozzy around then.  Bands like Napalm death were on Head banger's ball and freaking people out.

Intelligent Discussion (2 years ago)
Hey Rudy, You should make a facebook page, like a fanpage or something for your channel, that way you can just post and say, "oh hey new video up".  You should also review the different series that have come from magic the gathering and talk about what the market was like when it came out, what it became, and eventually what it is now.  That would be a great series.

I have to throw this out there. Speaking on MtG and evil. I'm an adult with a child, wife, and mortgage. I didn't start playing until after I got married. My mother learned that I play and Googled the game. She is freaked out by it and says it looks scary and evil. This is a person I watched Oz and Sopranos with as a teenager, as well as see Jon Leguezamo preform live. No prude by any means. Some things don't change...

Christopher Moreno (2 years ago)
Ur awesome rudy, Ur a magic personality now, I also look forward to each topic u talk about and look forward to each videos u post each day. u also show that even though Ur not very active in playing the game u can still be passionate in the game in others ways. even if its buying the old cards u used to play with,collecting booster box and the other different products,doing booster box runs to sale cards and hopefully make a profit.U show that magic is a life consuming hobby that effect people in different ways besides playing the game
Bricks and Boosters (2 years ago)
Odd MTGFinance Question for you. Crucible of Worlds 10th edition costs $10 more than the Fifth Dawn even though it's a newer printing with identical art. Any idea why this would be the case for this card? Is there just a lot less supply of 10th edition vs Fifth Dawn?

James Finch (2 years ago)
I've spoken down to you before Rudy... And for that I am sorry. I've been tuning in to your channel more and more and with each video you make I like you more and more. At first I thought you were just a financial opportunistic predator, preying on the game I love for monetary gain... It was stupid for me to think that. You've shown time and time again that you love Magic and the financial aspect of your content has really grown on me, in fact, you've sort of cornered a viewing market all to yourself by talking about the financial aspect of the game. I wish you well and I'll continue watching and liking your videos.
jose cuevas (2 years ago)
Keep making daily videos Rudy, I enjoy watching your videos, nobody talk mtg finance like you. Also you should sell shirts with your Alpha Investment logo on it I'm sure people would totally buy them I would!

Even back in '99 I remember some of the parents of my friends trying to get me to convince my friends not to play magic cause it was too grotesque. lol
We had the cops called on us and were escorted out of a coffee shop back in the day.  Something about playing a black deck with Unholy Strength and Demonic Tutor was scaring the other customers.

"Back in the day" the black color in MTG would REALLY be depicted with scary and horrid stuff... Nowadays? It's almost like a unicorn shitted on the cards and called it ART.

The whole satan scare deal came from a lot of sources all at once culminating into what became the 'bible belt' atc that you hear about I'm pretty sure one of the big reasons was a couple of bullshit scientific journals and media pushing it

One of the big pushes of the static scare shit was Al gore's wife tipper. She had people eating out of the palm of her hands falling all over themselves worrying about the most stupid shit. Guess they make a perfect couple huh.

Strato Incendus (2 years ago)
We been trying to make two commanders work for quite some time, but it was a little too complicated - like, you had to cast a specific one of them first before you were allowed to cast the other one. I wouldn't have expected something as straightforward as Partner where you can just have two Commanders without a drawback - it's similar to the planeswalkers from 2014 that just read "this PW can be your commander". The important part is that the individual card has to be weaker than a regular legendary creature or planeswalker.
