Hi, I decided to register on this forum to resolve some ethical doubts related to what the French call "etiquette". These days I am playing magic commander with some friends. There were three of us the other night, and one of these three players was ahead (he had two very strong creatures on the ground: Void Winnower and Bane of Bala Ged). The other player suggested that I use "Toxic Deluge" to eliminate all the other creatures. The owner of the two creatures urged me not to, saying he would not attack me. I preferred to follow the suggestion of the other player, and I used the "Toxic Deluge". At that point I was accused of being duped. My question is this: in a multiplayer game, is it right that all players team up to curb the strongest and best player? Is it ethical to create temporary alliances? What is the boundary that separates a tactical alliance from manipulation?
Another problem is that of the "paternalistic spirit". Whenever I cast a spell, it's always the wrong one. The other players expect me to line up alongside one of them. They do not accept that it can have my own independent strategy. How can you play magic in this unbearable climate?
It seems that in this group, the competition is taking over the fun.
