The epic battle between Trevor and Alexis begins. But actually, I won't be showing the entire duel, because I hadn't finalized any rules at this point (nor even now) so I couldn't have them play a whole game. Still, I hope you'll enjoy this glimpse at what playing Wizards could be like.

Also, Julie looks bored.

I would be Allea in this situation, watching while petting a cat.

cardboard crack

ermergerd! I used to be totally hooked on M:tG and played it constantly. I have some decks that are completely evil and one where the other person doesn't get to play once I get the correct cards in play (Stasis deck).

Which is probably why people stopped playing against me after a while. :/

...

I'm not the best at games like MtG and Yugi-O but I'm pretty sure you have enough life to withstand two damage, so doing that kind of devalues the point of returning an attack. Again, I'm no expert and you can criticize me.

redirecting damage

That's just the first round of play. If your deck is constructed to redirect or nullify damage, it can be pretty fearsome/annoying to others.

I'm speaking in the context of M:tG, but the principals apply to many games.

@Animatedben1: It's true that returning an attack when the damage is that low seems a little odd, but take note of what Alexis had there. Shade's Serpent had a special ability, allowing her to spend it on her opponent's turn (a feat you can't normally do). This allows her to play an instant during that turn as well. Also note the low cost of the redirecting attack card. Such a low cost would seem to indicate a lower rarity, and likely the possibility of there being multiple she has in her deck.

i.e. Alexis likely has multiple of those in her deck (in Wizards, a non-restricted card can have up to 5 of them in it, and even semi-limited means you can still have 3), and her deck is likely built around the idea of playing cards that allow her to deal damage during her opponent's turn. In turn... it's a "burn deck", or "damage redirection deck". It kills people by making them hurt themselves.

When did Alexis take her athletic shoes off, since she is now showing her pink socks ?

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Shortly after they walked into the house. It's pretty common to not wear shoes at home in America.
