Before we begin, I need you to take a little test. It shouldn’t take too long and I promise it won’t hurt.

The Test

1) Of the following cards, choose the five cards you most enjoy playing with:

Basking Rootwalla Battle of Wits Call of the Herd
Doomsday Specter Entomb Fact or Fiction
Flametongue Kavu Goblin Game Haunting Echoes
Holistic Wisdom Hypnox Iridescent Angel
Meddling Mage Mirari Mutilate
Nantuko Shade Radiate Rith, the Awakener
Skizzik Skyship Weatherlight Spiritmonger
Traumatize Urza's Rage Vampiric Dragon

2) From the following list, choose the top three reasons why you like to play Magic:

I enjoy the art I enjoy attacking with big creatures
I enjoy flaunting my victories I enjoy being the best at something
I enjoy hanging out with my friends I enjoy the competition
I enjoy making money playing a game I enjoy the mental challenge
I enjoy the cool card interactions I enjoy smashing my opponents
I enjoy creating innovative decks I enjoy winning in creative ways
I enjoy the fantasy flavor I enjoy winning in any way


Hello! This test has stopped working at some point, possibly because it was written using the website technology as it stood in 2002. Sorry about that! Of course, taking it properly required a certain amount of familiarity with the cards listed, so it probably wouldn't be that informative now anyway.
