Land Locked

For those of you still never heard of the term "collectable card game", you should know that some people actually build an 'empire' by selling, well, paper cards. For more than a decade after the simple idea of wizards dueling each other on cards, the company Wizards of the Coast, has propelled itself from a basement-run role-playing game (RPG) publisher, to become an international titan of the playing field. Not bad for playing with cards eh? Their popular card game is known as Magic - The Gathering.

The core idea of the game is simple enough, you draw lands and spells. Lands grants you power, and you cast spells with them. But sometimes the odds of getting enough lands are just a hit or miss...
