When I first started playing Magic (you know, back when I was playing my Craw Wurm, broken Stasis, green/blue/red deck) I made a great number of friends. To differentiate them from my older group of friends, I dubbed them my “Magic friends”. I've noticed a number of other people using this term. And to make matters worse, I just used it in this column.
Why can't we all just use the term “friends”? Why the need to segregate?
