Magic: the Gathering in the UK

After spending the last week desperately wanting to play lots of modern and being unable to find sufficient games due to time difference (magic-league is always empty on Asian time) I have finally realised the inevitable and know that playing on modo is probably my only option if I want to play mtg constructed. This is a very sad day for me, but I guess such is life.


However, the idea of starting from scratch with no decks and no packs is a pretty daunting task. As such, I would like any assistance in terms of advice and cards that you guys can give. In particular with cards. If anyone can lend me any of the following cards for modern I will be very very grateful (I will wait on t2 for innistrad). If you are insist on only selling the cards, I will happily pay either 1.1x the bot selling price in tix within 3 months, or 1.2x the value in a year when I next get to England.


I think I will primarily grind t2, pauper and constructed queues, and not really play limited (even though that is more fun). I want to avoid spending a very large amount on this if possible, and constructed will let me play for less. However, any other advice on how to play (even basic things like stops etc.) would be welcome.

Chris Bateman has warned me about Watery Graves and Shackles costing a lot online, in which case, some extra vendettas/river of tears and the UB m11 duals would be welcome.

something called a bynamelist.dat....

little help please?


can someone download this file:


and send it to please


tks for all the people who helped dl modo for me last night, very much appreciated. The problem is that some files in the download are automatically filtered by the "Great Firewall" in China, and this is a problem some of the chinese mtg players also told me about


@phil (or anyone else)

I would very much appreciate that splinter twin deck if you can lend it to me for a couple of days... I'm dv8r on modo.... how do I borrow the cards? :)



Two more questions

1: I opened a Breeding Pool in my first draft. Most people seem to sell this for 25 and buy for 19, what should I expect to sell it for?

2: Can anyone recommend a clan that would take me? ;)



How do I actually OPEN my starter pack :P

1 - Probably sell it to a player for 21?


2 - Limited Resources, maybe?

Limited Resources?

hmm are you on modo now dude? i can log in quickly and trade you some cards but i have to be quick cus i have a meeting this afternoon [having bosses walk in and see modo is quite dangerous!]

yes, here


tks, just tell me exactly what I need to do

oh fuck. my vm license has expired. so i won't be able to get on modo til i get home from work (have an actual windows machine at home), sorry!

no worries, it's not that important... certainly not worth get in trouble for :)


sometime later ;)

I am guessing it is referring to the Limited Resources podcast with is all about Limited. They have their own clan on Magic Online.

Yea, some people I know and like (e.g. kenny van Audenhove over in Belgium) are part of it.



from memory its right click and select open one of these/all of these in case you are still stuck on it. Add me if you like - BFF_Madfish.
