My Kids’ Decks
So I have a new project.
I am generally VERY careful about pushing Magic onto my kids. Nothing would enrich my life more than if they fell in love with the game, but I do not want to force it on them and risk turning them off. So I have been treading lightly (arguably too lightly.) But my 3 oldest kids are 6, 7, and 9 now, so I think it is time to finally dive a little deeper. As such, I have built them 5 different mono color, 40 card, Old School legal decks. Just 4 copies of 6 different cards + 16 basic lands for now. About as simple as it gets, although I did include pump knights over regular knights and some slightly more complicated stuff like Fireball and Berserk, just to add a little bit of spice as mono vanilla creatures is boring AF.
The plan is to let them get their feet wet by playing these for a few weeks/months. Then, once they learn the ropes and start to get bored of the same ole’ decks, I will show them an assortment of other/better cards they can add or swap into their decks. All Old School legal of course. I plan on recording all the changes they make, and seeing how things evolve over time. I will post all their changes here.
Also before you complain about the lands not being Old School legal, please note that my 500+ Alpha/Beta basics are already in the Broken Draft and my other 23 Old School decks. Plus I love Mirage/Urza’s/Tempest lands. Sue me 🙂
