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!
