  17. Lately I've been hearing people on social media and YouTube dump on Intro Packs. Their point is that Intro Packs are the worst product Wizards sells, because the cards in the deck are crap and not worth anything. Not only that, you can't pick one up and play at FNM. These people are missing the point, I completely disagree with this point of view. Intro Packs are a great way to introduce new players to the game. They are a small investment for someone who isn't sure whether they will enjoy playing Magic or not. They aren't made with collectors or experienced players in mind. They are made for new players to grab a deck with a mix of mechanics and creatures to open and play with. New players don't know and/or don't care about Magic finance. They just want to try playing. Intro Packs are great to keep on hand, too. Usually the decks experienced (using that term loosely) play with are a mixed bag of mechanics and combos that you have to play test to know how to use it. With a few Intro Packs on hand you can use those to play against or with a new player and explain the basics. They aren't made with FNM or competitive play in mind. Lots of the people who dump on Intro Packs say you're better off getting a few packs and building a deck. Of all the people I've introduced to the game (which is everyone I currently play with now, I introduced all of them to the game) this can be intimidating. To buy packs and put a deck together for a new player is like reading a different language and often leads to frustration and confusion. So people can talk about how worthless Intro Packs are. They don't have any high value cards. So what? That's not the goal. The goal is to give someone a ready to play deck with creatures, spells and lands that they can open it and play with. I love Intro Packs, they are a great tool to teach new players how to play. Hell, even I started with an Intro Pack back in the day during Darksteel. I used it and as I got used to playing I removed a few cards here and there until it was unrecognizable from the original deck. And that's the point. My rant is over, what say you?
