How to Build a Magic the Gathering Deck (beginners)

3586 ratings | 287831 views
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/charalanahzard Twitter: https://twitter.com/charalanahzard COMPETITION ENDS ON THE 7th OF MARCH. Enormous thanks to Hasbro for the give-away opportunity, and the cards supplied in this video! So, this week I teach you guys (mostly beginners, though) how to make your first Magic the Gathering deck. This card game has existed for ages and I only got into it 2-3 years ago, but have had heaps of fun (mostly teaching others to play!). It's definitely a bit hard to get into since, from the outside, it seems quite complex. If you build a deck this way and then start playing with friends etc. you'll very quickly pick up how to play, what you need to change, what cards you like, what strategies you like, and what weaknesses your deck has. From the steps in this video, you really just need to test your stuff out and start buying more cards to get a FULLY SICK DECK YO! So hopefully this helps some people out :).

I played magic for year just wanted to see how other make their decks and its about right lol i play with black and use lots of swamps and my others is green and i use forests
carl miller (2 months ago)
Well I played magic for a little while, yes I played black but with white in it, it's a (Extort) deck but it's EDH 💯 card deck, my deck is about kinda like a vampire, I suck the life out of my opponents to increase mine, but when I gain double the life it does that to my opponent or opponents like the vampire that when I gain life an opponent loses that much life same with Senguinated Blood but it's a enchantment.

Celesinezeks Gaming (1 year ago)
even though this video is 2 years old it really helped, ive only recently started playing Magic the Gathering and I started with the Ajani Deck, but now i have the chandra deck which someone gave to me, I also have a deck of cards that i was given form a draft pick that somebody one it consists of Forest and swamp. Im told its not a functioning deck, but it works and i can win with it. How do i make it a functioning deck. 22 lands in total.

Great video Alanah. Helped me heaps!

for a past time devoted to such far fetched premises, most MTG players seem very suited to society as it stands, snug as bugs as a matter of fact. Not that I would be about discomforting people for it's own sake, but some people actually do live life and treat communities in that manner for some reason. Commonplaces
1LitreofCola (2 years ago)
Thanks for the video. I'm trying to build a red/blue deck. But I've always played with pre built decks from my brother in law or virtual decks, so building my own deck is a little intimidating.
Billy S (2 years ago)
green and white for the win
Valkyrie (2 years ago)
30 lands holy fucking shit
Ryan McClelland (2 years ago)
In a mono-black deck at that. O_o;

Tigerdragon76 (2 years ago)
Wow you're beautiful.
Grey (2 years ago)
I would play blue and wight, blue because I'm a water bender and wight because it's team/army based and I think that would go good together.
Yellow Bannana (2 years ago)
i play white green black
zoob m (2 years ago)
this the kind of content I'm here for! except, aren't you required to have 60 cards minimum?
Narcous (2 years ago)
+zoob m Well the minimum is 60 and it would be better for your deck to have around 60. definately less than 100 so that the cards that you have are easier to get, if you have a few really good cards in it, it will be harder to get them if the deck is larger. So "around 60" is pretty much correct.
zoob m (2 years ago)
+Narcous she says "about 60" rather then "minimum 60" (if I remember correctly) which is what I'm commenting on.
Narcous (2 years ago)
zoob m at least 60. You could have 200 if you really felt like it
Alpha3690 (2 years ago)

This is a bit difficult to watch - the camera's not in focus. Also black and blue for the win!
Alanah Pearce (2 years ago)
Well, actually, the camera is just focused on the cards instead of my face :)

as a female magic player I just started getting into it but I hear there's alot of sexism....
Ryan McClelland (2 years ago)
Not so much sexism, it's just that not a lot of female players are as open about playing the game or interested in competitions so it's remained a very male dominated platform.
jjhollier (2 years ago)
nerds wil prob be floored to see a woman they can play with.
Leo Lombardozzi (2 years ago)
tom202404 People cry about soup being too sexist these days. While there are some awful people in the Magic community, most are fundamentally decent.

This is the first video I ever saw of you! so special <3
DreadZenon (2 years ago)
I know that this is from a couple of years ago but eh the hell with it. I'm a blue player mostly. The ironic part of this is that in most games I'm usually power based but in Magic I'm more so knowledge and spell based.
