  1. Oh dear. This video could not be more annoying. There are much better beginner guides with less chatting. Video does not need to be this long.

  3. live in a tiny home and needed a non electronic game that didn't take up much space. husband and i played our first game today but we got a lot of learning to go because we got stuck alot with basic things like…unsure of how many creatures we are allowed to summon…what the dice was for…do we only draw one card or do we keep 7 cards at all time…what does target creature mean…

  4. The energy towards the game is amazing. And I love the game myself. Sadly, my stupid ex decided to throw away my babies (my cards) and I need to replace them… any recommendations

  5. The info is Great but the lovely redhead host but this level of adhd was making me adhd and replay stuff 😂

  6. I want to keep watching and learn about Magic the Gathering but the immaturity and interruptions are too much.

  7. as a beginner in MTG i must say; this was so fucking annoying. Why do they have to say every sentence like it's supposed to be funny. Every time they say something, it's always accompanied with some sort of sound effect or some childish joke. This was unbearable. Truly.

  8. BE OBEDIENT Hector! do not smother the womenfolk with your natural enthusiasm for this geekery that feels as if a magnet to a body you now find made of pure iron. CONTAIN YOURSELF MAN!

  9. This video should be titled: How to talk: socialising: the basics
    because now on record for the first time we have clear scientific control of how non magic players communicate as appose to magic players.
    Magic players can learn a lot from this, namely:
    With talking the game is outside of the literal game the situational context becomes the inspiration for the game of talking as it were. If you are a magic player wishing to talk you are basically conducting a battle with your literal Shivan dragon. It is telling you to focus on the game and spend all your mana in that pursuit but you must fight it and initiate your creative mage. One way to do this is pretend to be stupid as found by Blond women in the 1950's. There are many ways to initiate non literal thought and we must to learn how to talk that is the battle at hand.
    Fortunately with the knowledge you now have, the right mindset, and a social setting to practice we can succeed at having a conversation that may one day lead to sex.

    Never explain what I had told you as that will simply be talking the game of socializing far too literally and thus defeating the point. I can do it because I am funny.

  10. You will never see these women at a magic game unless your magic club pays women over 10k to be there. It would be like a porn star turning up at your house because they heard in the neighborhood you did an amazing bedroom air guitar.
    Bear that in mind and you won't be disappointing after waiting 2 decades for them to show up.
    Magic is for young men that can't talk to women or middle age men that are wise enough to have given up on women and hope there is a category for old men once the game matures to contain a whole generation of ugly men. Blissful Utopia.

  11. Pro tip from a noob: just download magic the arena to learn. It's impossible unless you have a master player on speed dial
