How is the game 'Magic The Gathering' played?
This collectible card game is played with two or more players. Each creates a deck of cards consisting of artifacts, creatures, sorcery's, Instants, enchantments, and planeswalkers and land (mana) that they use to fight the other individuals. Players follow a strict set of turn sequences. Each player starts with 20 life points. The one that survives longest wins.
The game combines elements of luck and skill. The luck comes in being able to obtain the cards you need to support your deck, and then in the luck of the draw of the cards. The skill comes from being able to build a set of cards that can provide the offensive and defensive power necessary to win. It also involves knowing when to play certain cards.
There are a number of types of lands (mana sources): Plains(white), Swamp(black), Mountain(red), Island(blue), and Forest(green). There are also artifacts, creatures, instants, sorceries, and enchantments.
How much damage is dealt to an opponent when the Mugging card is played in a Magic The Gathering game?
It depends on what type of game you want to play. If you're just looking to sit back and play with some pre-built decks in a pretty environment i'd recommend "Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012" on steam. If you want to get into a very complete system, with every card and you dont care if you have to pay for packs or if the graphics suck, id recommend "Magic the Gathering Online"…
