My situation is very strange and sort of ironic. My favorite color has always been green, but I rarely play it because I like to play more controllish stuff and green is far below the curce on efficient control stuff. I like aggressive decks, but even my aggro decks are usually a little more rooted in reacting to the opponent and disrupting them. I used to be a big suicide black player, but lately I almost exclusively play blue. Here's the ironic part, though - my least favorite color is blue. It's partly because I don't like playing against blue and having to play around counters and stuff (especially since I play them, too, and I hate mirror matches in every game I play) but also because I feel it is extremely poorly designed.
Blue completely shatters the color pie and everything to do with balance in the game. It just so happens that blue's main strengths are mechanics that are fundamental to the entire card game genre, but that isn't enough for blue. It also has cards that keep up with everything the other colors are supposed to do as well. I have a blue aggro deck that can keep up with the damage output of a burn deck and still counter your stuff. How does that even make sense from a color wheel standpoint? And the entire concept of not even needing any mana to stop any card from entering play is just so powerful. The individual cards themselves might not be too broken or poorly designed, but some combinations of the cards that have been printed throughout the game's history allow for far more shenanigans than have been afforded to any of the other colors. But still, there's nothing like beating your opponent's face and still countering their plays even though you tapped out to play dudes.
I feel like aggro-control is the perfect way to play. I used to play strait control because I liked the thinking involved and the interesting stuff you could do, but after a while I grew out of it because I decided that there are a number of reasons that it is generally unfair to everyone involved. It's unfair to my opponents because it may lead to the game becomming bogged down and drawn out over many many turns with very little happening and boring the hell out of them, it's unfair to me because I subject myself to the same boredom of intentionally dragging out a game until I can do my thing, and it's unfair to everyone around us because they don't necessarily want to sit around waiting for the game to be finished. Then if I lose it just feels like I delayed the inevitable for no reason. I'd rather overwhelm the opponent while kicking their feet out from under them and just move on to the next game as quickly as possible. You can even get more games in that way.
When I teach someone how to play I ALWAYS start with the five colors . I just love the flavor that each color represents and thier indivisual game style. So I wanted to know which color do you absolutely love to use/drawn to. Which you hate to use, and what is your prefered playstyle???
I love the color blue. I love the flavor of blue being a mental/science color (illusions, trickery, telepathy, foresight, time, space, ect) as well as having the aspects of air and water. I like blue both philosophy wise as well as it's aesthetics. When I first played Magic about seven years ago, all I ever wanted was a complete blue deck. Blue just matches my personality so well.
I really hate to use the color green. Idk why it's just really boring to me, like all it does (in my eyes lol) is just make big creatures, gather up mana and is more brute than brains (which is not my forte).
My prefered playstyle would probably be along the lines of aggro-control. I would love a deck that prevents my opponent from doing anything or controlling the battle field to my advantage so that I could quickly make an aggressive attack on them (my merfolk deck is almost at that level that I want
So anyways what about all of you???
Blue has always been my favorite colour. Always was, and always is a powerhouse colour imo.
Red has always been my least favorite. I think early in my MTG days, when everyone was playing channel/Fireball/Direct damage/Stone rain decks made me hate red. DD always felt like a cheap win to me.
Playstyle, when I'm having fun, I'm a Timmy and I can't help it. I love fatties, I love big spells. I love winning with a big splashy spell or creature. When I'm actually trying to win I play U/B and I love combo decks.
