What does this mean after a criminal conviction for a month? Try to draw out the tattooed map of the prison system on your stomach? Do you want to save time in bed? Are you making magic cards or an album, the Gathering?

That’s what HeidenOvTheNord did. It wasn’t done by looking at the card on the internet to find references, nor by having a friend see the page and give them the descriptions. He did it completely from memory.


Simplified: The Brother’s War will continue the White/Blue Golden Age.

They said it’s not too difficult, destroying my memory. “Especially if you played a lot of the games on the deck. If you can’t remember 4 key cards from a deck, then then you just need to sit and think about what other cards would interact with in that deck. Let’s get more cards. It’s really like playing puzzles together.

I made these decks while I spent the majority of 2021 in the Harris County jail. Please refer to the first post, for details on deck types and more information. from magicTCG.

According to the newspaper, the jail they were in was an ideal place to stay. They claim they saw someone being beaten to death, that there was a “sexually 20+ person brawl”, and that “40% of the guards were corrupt”. To avoid all of the horrors, some of the inmates had a lot of “much mangas,” as well as sci-fi and fantasy novels. Since the poster had finally got a cell with another MTG fan, they rushed to work on decks to play together.

But among the cards they made was the Cat Oven, a combo that is highly controversial with MTG players. Essentially, you sacrifice the cat (Cauldron Familiar) to the Oven, allowing the food token, and then used that to make them back to play. Rinse and repeat, giving rise to the cat for a long time, sacrificing the cat turn out and resurrecting. Don’t do that a real life thing.

He taught magic inmates, and without doubt will get anger when they get out and the real deal with all his funny art. Who knows, maybe one of these two lots will get done in the pro scene, eh?

This isn’t just a unique phenomenon. Someone in the comments said that they jailed and their girlfriend would copy their MTG cards and send them to a copier, and everyone would come together to fold them for their hair together so they could be ripped off separately. And then they “played all day.”

Another added that they live in New Zealand and their LGS claimed that there’s a large prison population who plays Magic. But a city’s most secure prison banned it. In any case, Magic has hit people who are in jail. It’s certainly a fun way to do it.
