Magic! The Gathering: Noob By Nature!

Magic-The-Gathering-card backWhen I stated in my previous Monday’s post that I was going to work on putting my cards in the MTGGoldfish database; however, I did not expect to be so enthralled and it take over a lot of my downtime.

I initially wanted to do twenty to twenty five in a day that would take me about ten to twelve days to enter everything in excluding my duplicate’s and the land cards that I have in my current collection. As of right now I have two hundred and fifty nine cards total. Of those cards I have one Mythic and twenty one rares.

According to the site, the grand total of the cards I have is currently $73 total. I was informed to make sure to cross reference the cards with several other sites and to not take the $66 at face value for a few reasons. The first reason, there are different places that could put a higher or lower value on the cards depending on the sheer volume of print of one particular card. Some cards are more common then others. I know this seems to be obvious to the players that have had their hands in the game for a while but for a newer player that is not as obvious.

I have mentioned that I am a noob, right? Right. I am learning though.

AjaniI currently know that I want to build a deck around my Serra Angel card. My little brother mentioned if I ever want to get into a field of play that involves tournaments to and to win said tournaments – I would need to spend some time investing in angel token cards, and others to flush out a few options for possible deck’s. The first card he had suggested to me is Ajani. I fell in love quickly as soon as I started playing a few years ago with what the white deck’s had to offer and I started to ask questions. Based on all the conversations with a few people, I have had thus far is suggesting to me that a white and green combination of cards for a deck is the best choice for me.

Excuse me while my nerdy noobishness is showing!

Community Spotlight: Navox!

navox.jpg1 You have been a co host on several different podcast for a while, how long have you been podcasting and what is your favorite thing about co hosting?

I really like to chat about things I am interested in. I’ve podcasted about tv shows/ movies and Warcraft. I’ve been playing Warcraft for a very long time and I love to have conversations with those folks who share the same interest in the game

2 What are some of the Wow community content you enjoy following? (podcast, blogs, videos, ect.)

The Starting Zone with Jason and Spencer, this is the World of Warcraft podcast if you want to know what’s going on in wow.

The Converted – I try to catch this live, but I will watch on the following Tuesday at work if I miss it.  

FrazlCast – that one takes me 2 days to listen to on the way into work and going home. lol

Lagging Balls, The Instance, Rolling Restart, Hearthcast,  Of course Realm Maintenance

I used to try to listen to all of the wow community podcasts but I found that I do not listen enough to get through all of them before new podcasts are out.

Also, Non wow podcasts…. Stuff you should know, Gonna Geek, Branded in the 80s, Major Nelson Radio.

3 Do you have any advice for someone who is getting into creating fan made content (like podcasting, art, blogging, music, etc.)?

4 Can you tell us how you found WoW and what has kept you playing?

It was mainly the evolution in the mmo environment that brought me into wow. I had been playing Ultima Online, and then when Everquest came out, I swapped to EQ, and then when Warcraft was released my friends jumped the EQ ship and got me to reluctantly come along and the funny thing was, I hated wow at the start. It wasn’t EQ and I hated the 3rd person view. Lol. I really wasn’t liking the way everquest was going so I stuck it out with wow since my friends were all there and I’ve been in wow ever since.

5 What was the first ever character you rolled & Which factors determined your faction choice in the game at the time?

  • Do you still play on that faction and character?
  • What made you change?

The first character I ever rolled was a warrior but, that was the initial wave of me trying out wow. I actually do not have my original wow account. My buddy does.

The first toon I ever truly got involved with and adventured with is my Rogue. The 2nd time I was coaxed into playing wow with my friend Mark B and they needed a tank so I transported Navox from the Icy Tundra of the permafrost over to Azeroth.

6 What has been your most memorable moment in Warcraft and why?

Its hard to pick only one. If I had to pick one though it would be Heroic Siegecrafter in siege of orgrimmar this was before Mythic mode had come out and Siegecrafter was a roadblock. My raid group spent endless nights on this and we finally got it right before they nerfed it. It was one of the best memories.

7 With a new expansion on it’s way, what are you looking forward to most I’m “Battle For Azeroth”?

The Kul Tirans, I have been looking for a larger than human race for a long time.

8 With the return to the factional divide in “Battle For Azeroth”, Horde or Alliance?

Alliance
