The Luck Factor

Luck has been an important factor in Magic the Gathering. Sometimes, the game has received criticism for its more dependence on the luck factor. It has been argued that the game relies more on the luck and the employment of skills takes backseat. Magic the Gathering has been banned in few countries who believe that the game is based on chance and is comparable to gambling. However, being a trading card game, one cannot criticise the game solely on the point that it requires luck. The game has been a source of constant thrill to the players and also depends on the gaming and strategic skills of the players. Magic the gathering has been a magical game for the card lovers all across the globe.

The Required Skills

One must remember that one cannot win solely based on luck every time. And when it comes to card games, skills are very important in the determination of the winner. The winner of any card game must have some basic but polished skills related to the game. One wrong move can let yopu down in the game. A game can only be won or played when you have at least some basic skills. You must understand and master the use of spells, magical creatures and items to become a winner in Magic the Gathering. You must develop the art of reading the playing pattern of your opponent. Skills combined with a bit of good luck can make you the clear winner in the Magic the Gathering.
