Wizards, demons and goblins collide in the world’s first trading card game Magic: The Gathering, affectionately dubbed “cardboard crack” by its 10+ million diehard obsessives. From dank, wood-paneled basements to international big money pro tournaments, Magic continues to flourish since its phenomenal debut in 1993.
VICE follows a professional Magic player who dropped out of college for a shot to be number one on the pro circuit, while two brothers wax nostalgic about the spells of old.

I love M:TG!! I learned how to play when I was 14-15, and I still enjoy playing M:TG (when I get the chance) even though I'm almost 40. I've only played in 2-3 small local tournaments, way back when I was still a teenager. My big fat non-reg black/red burn deck is so much fun to use when I play against my friends during casual gaming sessions. We play using rules that are relatively relaxed as opposed to tournament rules; it allows for more unpredictable fun to be had.
Holy smokes! i grew up playing magic. This video is very nostalgic. I'm from Long Island as well. Thought it was cool that these Italian bros were representing. But then at 14:59 I see the god damn dunkin' donuts I used to work at!?? No way!!
Thay talk so much about about the point that vintage magic is so much fun and nostalgia and stuff. They forgot to Mention the important fact that you can either buy a new house or one vintage magic deck. The prices on vintage cards are absolutly absurde.
The moral panic and crying about pentagrams is so American. A country of religious nutcases that pretend to be advocates of free speech but clutch their pearls and cry "Think of the children" whenever the slightest thing offends their religious leanings.
Wait so these douchebags just made dinner for themselves AND THEN went to play cards with their "community" I thought they were making food for people? Nah it was just a 10 min scene of mom showing off her food and them eating it while praising to jesus.
I am no magic player, but I do know people. Jacob Wilson lacks conviction and humility, thus he wouldn't win until he addressed that. It's been 4 years, hopefully he has.
"Yea I'll put this with my other ones" what a douchebag......
2:16 look at all those cool kids now wow they are so cool man
pause it on 3:08 and tell me that is not a cool guy XD
would any one be suprised if jacob is gay? i wouldnt be
i love the nerdyness makes u cringe
Knew alot if magic players in high school , i could never get into it but they were always really nice and they took alot a of hallucinogens as did I but they were always cool and inclusive towards anybody
the beginning of this is so cliche and contrived that i can't stomach it. It seems like they have no idea what the heart of a trading card game is, and are appealing to the mystical - chess like allure that is complete fantasy
I used to call it Type 1... and I never understood why WOTC switched to only current card tournaments, I guess because it forces the player base to buy new cards. it's too bad, cause Type 1 had some really good cards and was fun.
I've watched this documentary six times, thus far. And mainly because of the Forino brothers parts (the Jacob Wilson segments are boring). Old time, sociable guys with Mishra's Workshop, Black Lotus, and Alpha/Beta Sol Rings? Yes, please!
Ok, too easy, hook me up with some sources. I find it hard to believe more people play pokemon online, when MTG has MTGO with a gigantic following, followed my MTG area, another huge following. This is not taking into account other methods to play for free. You can "LOL" me all you want but since you have a point to argue, you should probably provide sources.
