What Have You Learned From Magic

How to prepare for things Sam has really latched on to how crucial preparation is.

Advice for New Players

Life is a resource.Keep that in mind. Don’t dwell on the results. You can easily improve as a Magic player and not see it in the results.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

A lot of people just copy decks and don’t really know why each card is in there.

Don’t focus on your win/loss record. Every game is a learning experience.
