Free Magic the Gathering cards for us europeans

Seeing how a deck is supposed to be 60 cards minimum this is quite a blue marketing ploy, innit.

Luckily i have a brother to use to get more cards...

BTW, does anyone know if all the cards of the same colour are the same thing?! and if they are, should i get another colour or stick with one (so far there are only 2 of each, which would mean i wouldn't have more the 4 of the same card even if they are the same).

Is this "online"-cards or actual cards?

No all cards of the same colour are not the same; there are more than 5 cards :tongue:

Actual cards.

And what i meant was that the free promo packs are probably the same if you get the same colour, and i was asking if i should get another besides black, or just stick with having the same 30 cards twice (meaning i'll have 4 of the same card in the deck for the ones that are 2 in the pack of 30) so i can have the same colour in teh deck.

Oh well, I have no idea.

Got an ammo-crate and an album full of MtG-cards, haven't used them in ages.

I've played MtG since 1997, I don't think I'm viable for this promotion. Doubt they'd give away anything useful for me anyway in it.

Your DCI has to be no older then 1 month to qualify. But over here they didn't even check my ID or anything, i could have given any name as long as the code was good.

BTW, how much does a booster pack cost where you guys are from?

And they're not the same 30 cards... so i only got 2 of any one card: http://deckbox.org/sets/6869

Now i need to figure out a way to get some blue ones... i knew having friends would eventually come in handy...

If you turn on the edition column you'll see that the card is from the Tenth Edition, so relatively new (i think it was the core one before M10, which is Magic 2010, which replaces the numbered editions with numbering them after the year).

Got my blue pack. I'm probably never going to use them, but they're fun to have.

Aww, wish I had someone to play with. Not that I'm any good, prefer being creative to effective. My 5 colour as many multicoloured as possible only one card of each including land cards-deck only worked once. But then it REALLY worked :D

Weird colours on those cards. Several look like gold cards.

Anyone care to buy a cheap promo game: http://store.steampowered.com/app/49400/

I got it myself, mostly because it was actually 8,99 Euros instead of 9,99 like it is in $... and it might be the only game on Steam like that (even if it's still not converted for real).
