How to Build a Magic the Gathering Deck (beginners)



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 :).

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.

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.

All I want to know is how many cards in a deck

Zeroy Planeswalker says:

how could I make a voodoo deck

Thomas Gorissen says:

the marsmist titan might cost 7 but you can play it for 3 mana if your devotion to black is 4


You have to have at least 60 cards on a deck. I am a zombie mono black. Or I am a mono red aggro deck. I use liliana deaths majesty and Chandra torch of Defiance.
