One night I started to build a island theme deck then while I was building it I started to build a mountain theme plains theme swamp theme and forest them all at the same time I got four done and the next day I completed the fifth

La Business Man says:

I know heaps of ppl say keep it to 60 but currently I’ve got a 105 card modern izzet deck and an 85 card standard green deck. I have the nessecary amount of mana cards and the decks are REALLY hard to mill. the izzet deck is a dragon mill deck. its so good. also I know you should always buy singles for a custom deck but honestly opening boosters got me a lot of cards id never heard of but were really good 4 my deck. so yeah

Unauthorized Expression says:

So basically 60 cards and good luck.

Christopher Drum says:

I am an absolute beginner to MTG. I’ve only ever played Windows version back in its first release many many years ago, and now I’m trying the Open Beta. The new open beta doesn’t even begin to explain anything about deck building, and doesn’t explain most of the symbols and meanings of things on the cards. I’m sorry to say this video did not help me feel any more enlightened about the deck building process. I feel just as alienated by the game as before.

Mr. Lasagna says:

What about equipment and artifacts
