Magic The gathering is satanic?
Debate Rounds (3)
II. Scantly clad angels
V. Other Gods
VIII. Witch craft
First, I am not alone in this thinking. 
II. Scantly clad angels
If you look at the angel my opponent posted, she is wearing semi revealing clothing. Here's another angel that is more scantly clad.  There are plenty other examples of this.
There are plenty of demon cards in magic.
One artwork of unholy strength has a picture of a pentagram. 
V. Other Gods
 As you can see MTG puts forth the idea of other Gods.
Dragons are seen as satanic in Christianity. This is a problem in general with a lot of games. Kids often play as Satan without knowing it. For example, in Breath of Fire the main character can transform into a dragon. I kid you not the main character transforms into Satan. Spyro the dragon, you play as Satan. MTG is no exception. 
Plenty of demons in MTG. In fact you summon them and can sacrifice humans to them.
VIII. Witch craft
All of MTG is witches and warlocks. To the best of my knowledge any magic that is not from God, must be evil. This is just like any other fantasy game. For example in Final Fantasy series there is a white mage character. Clearly, this character is practicing witchcraft. The character never prays for the magic. Yet, our culture is full of references like this.
The most famous warlock is Merlin.  I never understood why King Arthur did not burn him at the stake. Clearly his magic was not initiated by prayer. MTG seems to follow in Merlin's wake. This is a world of difference between God parting the Red Sea for Moses, versus the witchcraft that Merlin casts.
This is the main flaw of magic and why it is satanic. You are casting spells. Even the clerics worship false idols and not Jesus Christ. As a kid I innocently played all sorts of video games. Not realizing my characters were warlocks, witches, and praying to false idols. This is a huge problem with video games in general, including magic the gathering.
MTG, really isn't different from most video games. Yet, from Star Wars and the force to Merlin its all witchcraft and evil. Luke Skywalker and all Jedi are just as evil as the Siths by casting vile witchcraft. In fact, more evil because the Jedis pretend to be good. At least the Siths are honest.
Magic the gathering does have other gods, but you could say the same about every fantasy setting, for example there's World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy , and The Legend of Zelda. In Magic The Gathering dragons are displayed as flying beasts that can breath fire, or ice and such. The dragons in the card game are not satanic excluding silgumar who is a undead (?) dragon that enslaves people, but of course to balance that there's a dragon of knowledge, and a dragon of life(maybe?).
In Magic The Gathering the demons don't exclusively make you sacrifice humans, and in most cases the demons don't make you sacrifice anything, they make you lose life (life as in a number that can go down and when it reaches zero you lose the game). Magic The Gathering is not witchcraft, it's cards made of cardboard and paper. Games are games, they won't make you a satanist, or anything else against Christianity. Magic The Gathering doesn't make you cast real magic, it's just the name of the game, you won't go to hell because you pretend cast magic. You cast "spells" in games like WoW (World Of Warcraft) but I don't see a fuss about that. In Star Wars the "magic" is psychic space powers, and isn't really evil. (Except in the hands of evil people). In conclusion magic the gathering isn't real "magic" it's cardboard and paper, and has no connection to the spirit world or anything along those lines.
Compare this to a classic Christian angel. See how there is no leg showing.

"In Magic The Gathering dragons are displayed as flying beasts that can breath fire" DATMEME
Every dragon is satanic in nature according to Christianity. The fact that they didn't show the dragons as satanic goes against the Bible. It would be more acceptable if every dragon had the creature type devil as opposed to dragon. By labeling Satan as the creature type dragon they are effectively stating that not all dragons are satanic, which is not true.
As for spells, every spell has two forms in Christianity. Holy and demonic. There is no in between, there is no neutral magic. Green and blue magic in the game is clearly satanic in nature because the mages do not pray to God for the power. If they would have made magic two colors I could understand, white and black. There is no neutral in Christianity, in fact neutrality seen by Lucifer's rebellion is the same as following the path of Lucifer. Remember the muse would not choose sides and got the same fate as the Satan's angels.
Clearly, in my opinion the green, blue, and red magic should only be able summon and cast evil spells. Since neutrality and evil are one in the same from a Christian point of view.
Thanks for the debate.
(Sorry this was so short there wasn't a whole lot of stuff to argue with)
As for the Christian angel versus the card game magic that is not true. There is no leg showing, versus some leg showing. More to the point many MTG angels reveal a lot more.
As for other games with dragons, this is true. It shows just how far we have come from the ways of the Lord. As for the game being fun, I don't think a game that endorses witchcraft should be fun. Thanks for debating.
