Hey guys! hope you like the video. First things first. New animations will be coming to flesh out the character. I'm having to do that alongside everything else I do so it's a slow go of things. Second! The battlefield situation is completely opinion, but if I ever teach someone to play, that's how I tell it. You can do it however you like, but since most players are coming over from Pokemon and Yu-gi-oh it's easier for them to have a more strict field. Third! If I mess anything up in the video let me know! I'm no judge I'm just a player, and this is a general overview. If there's something specific you want me to cover in a future video just let me know in the comments and I'll be sure to cover it. :)

This is a pretty bad introduction to magic. It fails to introduce players to card types (coherently), the example cards are all needlessly complex, it doesn't talk about the color wheel... or pretty much the significance of anything in the game, doesn't make it clear how to win, etc. Worse still, you're plugging Challenger decks... something very difficult to find most places... as an introductory product. Now, I admit, WOTC doesn't have an introductory product, but this isn't an excuse for you. Also, I'm getting sick and tired of seeing the abstract "5 colors" symbol... it is just bizarre that WOTC uses this symbol to symbolize the game (over, say, the 5 mana symbols themselves...), as it is generic and boring. Hey, kids, wanna play this cool game? Look here; an upside down comb! Isn't that fantastic? I bet it has all sorts of hair-inspired gameplay.

Would have been nice to have something like this in the 90s when everyone was trying to learn from the tiny rule book they used to put in starter decks
Island is the most powerful card, just so you newbs know.

I'm glad that you're doing these videos; it's hard to teach people how to play without many resources. I have a few comments, however. Firstly, I don't think it was a good idea to simplify the untap and upkeep steps into one step. This may confuse new players because some cards say that you need to pay a Mana cost at the beginning of your upkeep. If new players are led to believe that you untap during your upkeep, they will think they can only pay costs with Mana sources that were already untapped before the turn began. Another thing is that I think you're talking really fast; you may want to slow down a tad. Other than those things, I think the video was really great! I can't wait to see how the rest of the series turns out!

Untap and upkeep are usually pushed together in the same step when talking generally, and at the start of upkeep you untap your lands, but I see your point. Also, I know I'm talking fast, I'll try to slow down in future videos. Just wanted to make this one a general overview and hit the big points, then go into more specifics in later videos.

Actually you are supposed to announce the spell, put it on the stack, then pay costs. But tapping land first is fine.
Dragonknight (1 year ago)
That's not even necessarily true. You can (and probably should) tap your lands before announcing what you are playing. That is to say you tap you lands for mana then cast what you want to. On Mtgo, you don't get to see what is being cast until it's payed for.
Twistedlittlesmile (1 year ago)
MTGOTraders it's not a question of background; announcing the spell, placing it on the stack, then paying costs is how it's written in the comprehensive rules.
MTGOTraders (1 year ago)
I'm coming from a background where at a LGS or on MTGO, the land is tapped and the card goes onto the stack. I never knew the announce thing because 99% of players I ever played with were suuuper quiet during a game, unless they just wanted to say "Vraska's Contempt that" or whatever. But that does make sense. *nod

Seen a lot of people asking for beginner videos- not deck techs, not gameplay, just teaching. Good to have something to point people at other than only the wotc site's introduction
MTGOTraders (1 year ago)
Been hearing that too, and I'm wanting to bring as much knowledge as I can to this. <3 Will have more videos in the coming weeks. I think the next one will be on Combat, then the stack, and so on.
