What about a MTG magazine?

I think it would be good if maybe there was a monthly or termly magazine that people could subscribe to. 
The Duelist, Scrye. With the advent of the intertubez, they sorta went bye-bye.

I do miss Duellist. Call me old school (or old fart ), but there's something about a REAL mag that you get to thumb through that can't be replaced by the internet.

I would still buy Duellist.
I said it once and again, I would still be buying Inquest

Thorin from Inquest used to post on these boards (at least in the D&D section) under the name McThorin.

Inquest was particularly good before the advent of Yu Gi Oh. Hilarious magazine.

If you want InQuest-like content, just read articles over at SCG. And given my opinion on SCG, you can understand where this is going.

Yeah, ScG is a good site. Dunno why anyone would dislike it.
I more meant that they have a lot of InQuest's misogyny and such.

Yes, but misogyny is such a hit with the kids. If there was a woman around here, this is the point where I'd tell her to make me a sammich.

Reading Inquest for tournament play is like reading MAD for the news.

Misogny is funny, nothing levels the playing field of equality like a nice joke.

Why did they stop it?
I miss TopDeck and Sideboard. Scrye was way too little info for its price.

I bought Scry & Inquest more for a hardcopy spoiler than anything else. My access to a computer was limited for a bit, so having a card list and random gaming info was cool. Card evaluations were funny though, since they tended to either be obvious or horribly off, depending on who was on the article.

They stopped because of the utility of the internet. They essentially just moved all the content they were preparing for the mag to the webpage. Much more economical for both parties that way. They even announced it that way. "We're discontinuing the Magazine, but the content will still be availible on our website." Or something to that nature...

I recall liking what I've read at their website, Scarwood Bandits being what immediately pops to mind.
Fun fact! If you check the URL for DailyMTG you'll see that it's in the folder /Magazine. What could an M:tG Magazine give you that DailyMTG (Or a similar site that does articles like GatheringMagic.com, StarCityGames.com, ChannelFireball.com, etc) doesn't?

Last time I made a sandwich for my husband, it was apparently so terrible that he ended up remaking it himself. He complained that the mayo got splattered all over his shirt when he tried to bite into it.

Anyways, yeah, like Dragon_Nut said, Daily MtG is meant to be just that. Of course, it's not the same as a real, physical magazine, but then again, White Dwarf is a real, physical, nerdy hobby magazine and that's pretty much turned into an overpriced, 100+-page commercial, so eh. I prefer Daily MtG over that, myself.

You know, on two separate occasions as I was texting my friends to get together to hang out, I told them to make me a sandwich and they actually showed up with one. Both of them are male incidentally, so go equality I guess .

As for the OP, there was a magazine called Mage, but as I recall it was mostly just stuff from the website in print form along with a bunch of art prints, and it only ran for three issues as far as I can tell.

Funny story: InQuest Magazine (I think it was InQuest) had an oversized Chaos Orb which I totally rooked someone into allowing into a (non-sanctioned) game. I had a proxy card that was a Mountain with "Chaos Orb" written on it. When I played it, my opponent cried foul: Him: "WTF? a Proxy? no-one said anything about Proxies. Do you even own an actual Chaos Orb?" Me: "Yes, but I thought it would be better to use a Proxy." Him: "No way. If you're going to put a Chaos Orb in your deck you have to use your actual Chaos Orb." Me: "*Sigh*. Okay." I pulled out this huge Chaos Orb and placed it on the table. He tried to cry foul again but everyone else said he insisted I use my actual Chaos Orb and that was my actual Chaos Orb. I used it, flipped it and wiped most of his board. Unsurprisingly, that only worked once and only because everyone present thought it was hilarious.

Hi guys! So, I'm a sort of returning player to Magic. I say sort of because as a child I had two main TCG's I liked. Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon. Some of my friends branched off in to Magic, and I bought two pre-made decks just to kind of fit in. Like I said, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon were what I really knew how to play. I have a extensive knowledge of deck building in those two TCG's. However, as far as Magic is concerned, I only ever used those two pre made decks. I know how the game is played, and I know general things, but now I want to get in the game for real. I want to begin playing it as a regular. My question is, are all cards ever released from the time of the inception of this game until present day fair game in a deck? Or are there special rules? Are some cards forbidden or restricted? Thanks guys, and I will gladly accept ANY help lol.
I have the same problem with women.

That's what RPJesus tends to do. That's why I don't think he's a real person, but some Magic Card Archive Server sort of machine, that is programmed to react to other posters' comments with obscure cards that do in fact exist, but somehow missed by even the most experienced Magic players. And then come up with strange combos with said cards. All of that is impossible for a normal human to do given the amount of time he does it and how often he does it. He/It got me with Light of Sanction, which prompted me to go to RQ&A to try and find if it was even possible to do combat damage to a creature I control (in light that Mark of Asylum exists).

Initially yes, Wizards was married to blue. However, about a decade ago they had a nasty divorce, and a few years after that they began courting the attention of Green. Then in Worldwake they had a nasty affair with their ex, but as of Innistrad, things seem to have gotten back on track, and Wizards has even proposed.

10/10. Amazing.
What could an M:tG Magazine give you that DailyMTG (Or a similar site that does articles like GatheringMagic.com, StarCityGames.com, ChannelFireball.com, etc) doesn't? 



Hmm. Magic was more of a thing for cool people back in the day, and Inquest in particular carried that. That and magazines often came with preview cards. That and magazines are fun to collect.

The physical magazine, in your hand to thumb through, the ability to access and enjoy that information away from the computer, bonus materials, and I'm sorry, but  there was a LOT more material in the mag than on the website. That being said, the website is free, and the money you spent on the mag you can spend on a couple of boosters, but I'd STILL like to see the mag back.
I do miss Duellist. Call me old school (or old fart ), but there's something about a REAL mag that you get to thumb through that can't be replaced by the internet.

I would still buy Duellist.




Why did they stop it?



Because of a new format where this "two" does not exist.

Reading Inquest for tournament play is like reading MAD for the news.

Misogny is funny, nothing levels the playing field of equality like a nice joke.

Also NeoMint I don't do business with SCG, but for the most part, I've only read a couple of there articles, ever. The last one being during that whole Finkel incident.

Who is this? Why should I care?

Anyone remember when Inquest had preview cards too Odyssey three weeks before any website? I remember playinh with my Fire Bolt and being like "I cast it from my graveyard bitches!"
Oh he wrote that article....

He also wrote the article about grinders. My literally least favorite player type.

Fair enough. Personally as a broke college student I prefer the free digital version. It also means fewer annoying advertisements. (Yeah, they're still on the side but I pretty much ignore them.)

I am curious what other (non-physical) material the magazine carried DailyMtG doesn't. As for quantity: Although day-by-day DailyMtG doesn't have as much, you do essentially get a mini-issue every weekday. I doubt Inquest once a month (I'm guessing? That's the standard rate) had anywhere near as much content as DailyMtG every day.

As a side note, I think the biggest advantage a digital M:tG magazine has over a physical one (Especially with deckbuilding and strategy articles) is autocard. Seriously, trying to read a From The Lab type article without autocard would be painful, especially once the author starts delving into totally obscure cards from ten years ago.
