People do play for Ante still. WTF is up with some of the people on this place? I keep watching as people say that no one plays for Ante anymore at all, and yet, I STILL play for Ante. I lost a game a while back where my Ante was a Blue Spell we all know and Love that lets you take another turn after this one and costs a lot of money.... I lost one of my collection of those.... It sucked.... But I still took it like a Man. I only have like 4 now, but at least I still can back up my decks as being good. The reason I probably keep seeing how no one plays for Ante anymore is because people today seem to wanna be sissies. They're worried they might lose and lose a card too. Well, back when I started playing almost 17 years ago, you HAD to play for Ante. It was REQUIRED. If you didn't play for Ante, you didn't play. Then in Revised, they came up with these "House Rules" and said a common House Rule was not playing for Ante, and another "House Rule" that caught on, was a Mulligan. Back then ... (see all)

You guys know playing for ante was the original idea of MTG?

THe only reason that i can see the ante being good and this is not reason wizards got rid of it is because it stops decks from becoming to expensive.

Quite possibly the worst ante card printed in terms of "not-fun".. I miss the days of ante tho.. It was fun, if it was casual that is. Lost some good cards, won some good cards. It's why I ever even included black in the decks I concocted in 1st place! In case you don't know, Black ROCKS it out on ante cards!

you know what is freaking awesome?! talking about losing cards that are actually rare and hard to come by because you didn't want to play poker!!

@Nayban: That's an amazing idea. For whatever reason, having to buy a new $10 card seems a lot more intimidating than buying consumptables for someone else.

hmmm... I wonder, instead of adding cares to ante, maybe it could say "exile the top 5 cards of the libary", instead. but meh.

that way, the ante isn't used. that said, Nayban's idea of ante is damn awesome.

I put four of these Babies in each one of my decks so if I lose the first coin flip I get 3 more chances. It's a guaranteed win!
