New to Magic: the Gathering?
If you’re new to the game, there are some great resources available for learning:

  • If you like reading rules, you can start with Magic’s basic learn-to-play guide.
  • If you prefer to learn by doing, stop into the store for a brief demo with a Barrister. (We suggest calling first to see if the store is slow enough for a demo)
  • You can also download Magic Arena for free and learn the game on your PC, phone or tablet.

New to the Commander Format?
In Commander, you’ll pilot a deck of 100 unique cards(yep, only one of each card allowed). One of your cards is your Commander, a Legendary creature who you can summon from your Command Zone any turn of the game, even if they’ve already been defeated—some special Commanders even have special abilities that are active while they’re dormant in the Command Zone.

Commander is normally played in free-for-all “pods” of 2-5 players. You’ll the game start with 40 life, and your goal is to be the last player standing.

If you want to jump right in, ask a Barrister about Ready-to-Play Commander Decks, available for purchase!

How does Quick Draft work?

At your Booster Draft event, you’ll arrive with no cards and sit down at a table of players–your draft pod. The event is split into two phases: Draft and Play.

Draft Phase: ~45-60 minutes
Everyone receives three draft booster packs when the event begins. All players simultaneously open their first pack and pick a card from it to keep. Then everyone passes the rest of the cards in that pack to the person next to them. You keep picking and passing until all the cards are gone. Then everyone opens their second pack, picks one, and passes–but in the other direction this time. Then the third and final pack, and you’ll pass back the original direction.

By the end, you’ll have about 45 cards you picked. You’ll want to have been picking cards in similar colors, or that you think will work well in a deck together, because then you get to build a Limited Deck (40 card minimum) out of your picks. Add lands from our supply, and your deck is ready for the Play Phase.

Play Phase: ~90 minutes
Using your newly built deck, play three single-game rounds with other players who were in the same draft pod as you.
All of your drafted cards that are not in your deck are your Sideboard for the rest of the event, so you can swap them into your deck between games.

Draft Packs: Each player will receive three Draft Packs from the most recent Standard-legal set. Alternate packs can be drafted if participating players unanimously agree on an alternate set.

Prizes: All players receive Promo Packs based on their win record!
