Learn to play Magic!

Magic: The Gathering is a trading card game, combining collectible cards with a strategy game. In Magic, you play the role of a planeswalker, a powerful wizard who battles other planeswalkers for glory, knowledge, and conquest. Your deck of cards represents all the weapons in your arsenal. It contains the spells you know, and the creatures you can summon to fight for you.

The best part of a trading card game is that it’s always changing. You build your own unique decks, and no two games of Magic are the same. New Magic expansion sets are released several times every year, and each new expansion brings new ways to stupefy and defeat your opponents!
