Completely mind blowing. It's almost as hazy describing how EDH got to here as Easter.

Is it sad that I really want to read the Necro and Zak Dolan articles more than modern magic theory?

I'd absolutely kill for a copy of The Duelist #4. Mine was lost in a move a few years back. It's the most nostalgic magic item I could have. The Melissa Benson and Zak Dolan articles were great.

Someone posting this to Facebook was actually the first that I had ever seen of it (or recall seeing it). Perhaps it's where Adam Staley got the original idea.

I was recently rummaging through a boot sale, when I came across a box full of the Duelist Magazines. I got the first fifteen consecutively, but then they start too break up. I did however get Issue #31 sealed with it's Tahngarth Life Counter Card!! OOOOOHHHH!! Anybody with any of the other three caracters for sale/trade, please contact me via PM.
Thanks for the sweet post Zimagic!!

End o fLine

Very cool. Pretty sure I recognise some of the other front page content, so I assume I've read that one (I've a feeling I've read issue 4 onwards), but I don't believe I've ever read that.

Oh man! So good to see the Duelist wheeled out - and an amazing find. I think I have that issue somewhere - I certainly remember having the 'exclusive art print' on my wall for ages - Pillage.

Bring back Richard Kane Ferguson! Happy days :D

Hello,

I was the author of that variant way back in 1996. I mentioned it to my son and he didn't believe me so I googgled the article and found your post. I like to think that it had a little something to do with what EDH has evolved into. I live in Raleigh, NC and I see folks playing and raving about EDH. I use to think "Man, that sounds awfully familiar :D "

My mom (who still lives in NY) has my only copy of Duelist No. 11. I think I will have to get it back during my next visit :P I was thrilled to get the idea in the magazine and even received a metal abaccus-like life counter for my troubles.

Regards,
Jesus

So, you're the god of EDH, and your name is Jesus.

Huh.
