    I mean discarding cards from their library, which blue seems to be proficient in. Discarding from the hand is a black ability I utilize frequently. I think blue may just have to remain a support color for me, at least for now.

    Thank you so much. This is some amazing info. I’m definitely going to look into some of those cards, but I may just have to utilize blue as a support color. I mostly appreciate its counter spells, but I’m afraid I’m not patient enough for the extreme dragging out of the win.

    Hello! My name is Nicole and I live in Utah. I’ve been playing magic for about a year, but only just today began to seek out forums. I play primarily black in standard, but I dabble in all colors.

    My Fiancé and I started playing Magic about a year ago. Since then we have become utterly obsessed. We’ve dabbled in all colors, but I play primarily Black, and he plays primarily white...to the point we have a rule that I’m not allowed to make a mono white and he’s not allowed to make a mono black. In our time playing magic, I have utterly crushed him. 95% of the time I win our matches, and at this point I have 3 well working decks that I have played against multiple people with great success. I love building decks and I came to realize I understand every color except blue. Now, don’t get me wrong. I know why blue is the most powerful color. But making people discard cards and tap creatures and return them to their hand feels....tedious. I like the precision and ferocity of black and red. Green and white clearly have their merits, but blue, as powerful as it is, doesn’t seem fun. I don’t mean to sound pretentious. I know I’m a noob in the world of magic and I have a lot to learn. So what am I missing here? I tried to make a blue deck with chasm skulker, nadir kraken, and toothy imaginary friend. My spells focus on cards that allow me to draw cards and enchantments that maximize the number I can draw to grow the creatures out of control. Even though it’s not really in the spirit of blue, It’s a mean deck for sure, but it’s still boring. I don’t have spells to target players, only their libraries (which feels cheap) and I prefer blacks method of killing and exiling rather than returning to hand, even though I see how it would be frustrating and mana drain the other player if they really wanted that card. Is this just not my play style and I should mix other colors in or simply play other colors? Or am I missing something crucial? Please help!
