How to Play Magic: The Gathering

Greetings, gamers.How to Play Magic: The Gathering

This post will lead you to all the information you need to start playing Magic: The Gathering. I’m writing an article myself on how to play this amazing game, but it is still going to take a while before it’s done. So, what’s this all about? Well, yesterday, I was watching Boogie 2988[1] open some Return to Ravnica booster packs and came across an incredible video. Probably for being tired of people asking him to explain the game, he posted a link to a series of tutorial videos on how to play MTG. If you want to learn how to play the online version of the game, don’t worry, it has the exact same rules and cards. It’s the same game, except one is played with paper cards, while the other is played with digital ones.

The series is called Learn to Play Magic: The Gathering and is divided in several parts. A couple of nice fellas will explain to you the fundamental aspects of the game. After watching all the videos, you should be able to start playing this amazing TCG (Trading Card Game).

***IMPORTANT: I do not own these videos and had no participation in their making. These are official videos uploaded to YouTube by Wizards of The Coast.***

Part 1: Welcome to the Multiverse

Part 2: The Five Colors of Mana

Part 3: Game Zones and Parts of a Card

Part 4: Card Types

Part 5: Parts of a Turn

Part 6: The Next Step

On the description of every video, they tell you to visit for more information. There, you’ll find a demo version of the game, to practice what you’ve just learned. They have also a .PDF with the rules of the game available for downloading.

Swiss Booster Draft Champion!

Hello ladies,

So, I’ve just started playing Magic: The Gathering Online again, and this time I decided to go for some Booster Drafts. In case you don’t know what these are, just go away =P. In the future, I’ll post something explaining the game and the formats. But today I just wanted to annouce my victory in the third Booster Draft I participated in.

OK. Winning 1st place in a Swiss Booster Draft is not a big deal. I know it, you know it. But still, I started playing them yesterday, and got my first win. To be honest, it was pretty exciting. After that, I played an 8-4 and wasted all my profits. It was close, though hahahaha. From now on, I’ll be playing only 4-3-2-2 and 8-4. Not only because the prize is bigger, but also because they’re faster.

So, here’s the print of the win anyways XD:
