I've been playing MTG since 1997 and still love it
I haven't kept up with the recent expansions but still play with friends regularly. A while back we consolidated all our cards since we only play together into a massive stock (well over 10 000 cards). We have the cards separated into 3 boxes: creatures, all other spells (sorceries, enchantments, instants & interrupts), artifacts and special lands. We draft 100-100-50 cards from the boxes and built up decks and play (basic lands are unlimited).
We've found that this keeps the game quite interesting and the game play fun. All the expansions thrown together makes for creative deck building!
My favorite color to play usually is white, my seconds are black and blue.
Best deck I ever built a few years back was an artifact deck that was virtually unbeatable
