I have of course heard of Magic my whole life (31 y.o. man) and have always been kind of interested but never had any friends who played or had any interest in it and honestly, it seemed intimidating so I never researched it or anything like that. Well for some reason lately I have really been wanting to change that because of some silly you tube channels I was somehow recommended and starting watching solely about the value and trading of and collecting of rare MTG cards. So I decided to search for a video to watch on how to play and man, and I am happy you guys had made one. I love Hector! Then as the video started (where I am now, so this comment will probably end up getting edited) I am extremely happy to know that everyone here seems new or newbish to the game and that makes me hopeful they will know the right things to ask to have explained as me. Because sometimes when fully enveloped or obsessed people try to teach a topic or game they don't fully understand what needs explained because they can't see how much more knowledge they have over layman's on the topic. That is all, Thank you!
this is so annoying

You make mtg fun to watch and to learn, I like the passing of the turns,. Very creative my favourite is when she put it on her shoulder. I have never played. Love the animated actions e.g.. lighnig strik etc..

How do I get a deck in the UK
Scott UfoMan (2 months ago)
After demonic dungeons and dragons comes demonic dungeons and dragons in the card edition. Land is earth, and their are four different types of lands or five? Each deck is unique and different editions to series for cards, and only a certain ammount of cards is dealt per player. Difference between Dungeons and Dragons and Magic the gathering is in Magic, which the celtic pagans would call Magick where you get to control a whole army against a player or multiple players or team play. In Dungeons and dragons or demons and devils you get to control one character who is you in role play. Keep in Mind just like dungeons all characters are open table. Depending on playing with friend or group or league their are rules each one goes by. Except player on player meaning you both make your own rules. Characters can be depending on decks and special decks, Barbarian, Wizard, Elf, Witch, Archer, Clergymen, Swordmen, Dark Elf, Light Elf, Warrior, New, Werewolf, spirits, Ancient Egyptians, Warlocks, and whatever decks have different characters i have not named. I have played this game less then six months when i was active on this game. I was also a level 70 player on d & d neverwinter, you can actually really challenge yourself on games like neverwinter.Neverwinter more then 2 years of playing, once you pretty much no the concept of the game and the mechanics to each puzzle and defeat all the high up bosses you challenge your self with Raven Loft. That game got me dizzy and it was very addicting, however i came here to check out your turtorial 😊

Why are they playing with 10 life and 30 cards?
Mai (2 months ago)
Jamie Guy (2 months ago)
Mai they do. I got mine last week. I’ve just started playing myself. What country are you in? I’m in the UK. If you google Magic the gathering store locator you’ll find your closest one.
Mai (2 months ago)
Been to MTG stores an hour away and literally no free cards. So there is no free 30 cards.
Mai (2 months ago)
.-. I don’t think they give 30 cards for free.
Jamie Guy (2 months ago)
Mai because they are playing with a “free deck” that you can get at your local MtG store. 30 cards for free!

I asked somebody yesterday if this played like Yugioh...
Andrue Rendon (3 months ago)
BEGINERS TIPS RIGHT HERE... Just download and play Magic 2015 on your phone or tablet. It has a pretty short but good tutorial when it comes to the basics and it makes it seem much less complicated than just listening to someone try to explain the game.
Jon Leask (3 months ago)
Uggh, please have your camera crew check focus before you start or at least use a higher aperture on the lens. It's SOOO BLURRYYYY!

The White Watcher (5 months ago)
So in my deck ima go get more cards but all I have for land is a Gate what does a Gate do?
Misty Garner (5 months ago)
The White Watcher a gate is just a dual land it can tap for one of two different colors. But it comes in already tapped so you'll have to wait an extra turn to generate mana from it.
Steve Gerow (5 months ago)
By knowing what 52! is, and its ridiculously large nature, I have a great deal of respect for you Becca.
Bart Connolly (5 months ago)
@12:42 it isnt 52! i.e. 52 factorial . It is 30 factorial on the 30 card deck.

Shattered Knight (6 months ago)
Thumbs down! Holy crap this is so bad. Don't watch this if you're trying to learn MTG. It's like a nonstop beam of words thrown at your face. Like reading word after word off of a script without any regard to actual proper speaking in a way to convey information and show how to play at a reasonable pace to new users.

Putthapone Chanthavong (6 months ago)
I wanna start playing but im well in my early 30s, and I know nobody that would be interested. I dont really know if I can just go to a lgs and start playing with strangers. I also dont know if they are willing to play with a noob.
