Let me say this up front. I am in no way a Magic The Gathering expert. Nor do I even consider my collection any good. At this point in my dabbling with the game is collecting. Honestly, I love the artwork that is involved more then anything.
I have had long conversations with my younger brother and how I can become more involved with the table top gaming – and other games as a whole.
Essentially he has challenged me to become a better player, To ask efficient questions, and overall to have fun with everything that comes with MTG & a plethora of other games that I may be interested in.
I have spent a few hours actually playing Magic total. I am going to also take my little brother up on being a better player and lets face it – not everyone knows where to start. So, to the internet I went!
Wizards of the coast has a splash page that is very basic, and has a few videos on the page, the one video that I wish I watched when I was first starting is their “how to build your deck” video.
The Wizard Of The Coast crew also has a youtube page with a lot of information – so definitively use the channel as a tool.
The other tool that I would suggest using, and this is obvious to players that have invested a lot of time and money, is MTGGoldfish. You can enter all of the cards you have currently and add new ones you gather later. Just know that pricing for each individual card will very from one site to the next. MTGGoldfish also has a youtube channel!
I am going to try to cover news and stuff for MTG the best I can. I also would like to dig into some more basic things, like rules and such for those of us that are new to the game and hopefully I will be putting my cards in the MTGGoldfish data base for everyone to see. I now have a few hundred cards and it will be a huge undertaking.
Hopefully I do the game some justice and help a fellow newcomer to learn along with me!
