Quote from Bluelights >>
There once was a tale of Timmy, Johnny and Spike. Three Magic players.
Timmy liked to have fun and do weird and strange things and just have fun. Enjoying a deck is the most important part for this player.
Johnny likes to make decks and see if he can make an interesting card work. He sees making deck not as a part of card game, but THE part of the card game.
And Spike likes winning and to feel powerful. For the Spikes of this world winning equals fun. If they are not winning they aren´t having fun. They don´t care where the deck comes from, they care if it wins.
This applies to every card game. Now it´s difficult to fit exactly into this and a lot of people have a bit from another, but these are the general archetypes of the players that exist in card games.
Moral of this story everyone plays the game for a different reason, and neither of them is playing the one true way to play a card game. And neither of them is entitled to another player playing the game their way.
Oh man, I remember reading this when Mark Rosewater wrote this in his article.
