Question by : What decks are good in magic 2012 for xbox?
What Decks are the best in Magic 2012 for the xbox 360? I’ve never really played magic before. All my friends have and are schooling me in the game because they have better decks than me. What are some good decks? What decks are good against other certain decks? Are there weaknesses to any?
Answer by Jon Kilbourne
It all depends on your play style and exactly what kind of deck you are looking for. Each deck has its ups and downs and honestly most games it is purely luck of the draw, no matter how good you make a deck you can always be screwed over by a bad hand. Now on to the game itself..
First thing I would recommend would be to play through the whole campaign to unlock all the decks. Then continue playing one of the easier planeswalkers to unlock the cards in the decks. With more cards unlocked you have much more personalization and options to set up your deck. Personally my favorite deck was the green/blue deck (i forget the name but it is the one the merfolk planeswalker has) because it has huge creatures and very fast mana production to get them out.
Second, I would check out some articles or tutorials about normal MTG, they have some really nice breakdowns of strategies for colors and friendly/enemy colors out there. Because you are only able to use the cards provided you will need to think quite a bit less since you aren’t making your own deck but they can provide some good background.
The main thing is trial and error and just have fun, I have stuck with MTG for about 10 years now and am still being pleasantly surprised about what they are doing. If you get in to the XBLA game you can also check out some card stores in your area and possibly get in to a whole new realm of MTG.

From spacious lawns to city apartments with limited roof space, you can make your patio or deck functional and comfortable. Use brick, wood, stone, or tile on a fun poolside patio. Build a freestanding gazebo or pavilion. Add luxurious amenities: hot tubs, extensive grill setups, and outdoor ovens. Focus on hammocks to lounge in, plant boxes to beautify, or umbrellas to shield you from the sun.

Question by azrslide: How would you display decks of playing cards?
I have a collection of playing card decks. I would like to display some of the most unique decks the main room of my house, but this presents a problem. The more unique decks have a different picture on the face of each card, and in order to really show these decks off, people would at least need to be able to browse them.
So, any suggestions on how to display card decks?
Answer by !!~*Apples*~!!
what about using those small “brag book” photo albums for them. They are easy to slip the cards into and you can put a couple on each page so all the pictures are visible. This would protect them from the oils off of peoples hands as well.
Another thought is the trading card plastic covers that are available for things like pokemon or baseball cards. Those would be easy enough to put two cards into, facing the backs outwards and still protect the cards from handling.
What do you think? Answer below!
A few nice decks images I found:
Sit on your new deck

Last step is to sit in smug satisfaction that you actually built a deck.
Total time: about 10 hours spread across two days.
Total cost: I spent 0 on this 8’x12′ deck. I used the highest-end Trex called "Cayene" in their Brasilla series which is supposed to weather and look like mahogony. It cost about 0 of the 0 total. I probably could have done the entire deck in cedar wood for about half the cost but after having both a trex deck and a regular deck, I prefer the smooth finish of trex and I don’t have to do anything to the deck ever for upkeep.
Getting this professionally built was about /sq. ft. so I ended up getting the deck for about half the cost.

Almost finished deck – other view

The deck looks a little angled to the steps. This is actually because the steps themselves slant away from the house. Sucks, but hopefully it’s not too noticable.
