Editor’s Note: Jason has been working on this idea for a long time. After some technical difficulties and computers being evil, Jason is ready to bring you the first of what will hopefully be many interesting pieces of video content.
Have you been thinking about getting into EDH on Magic Online, but been having trouble getting started? It can be hard to find your way around the program as a newbie. Even building decks and finding games isn’t as easy as it should be. If you’ve wanted to get into the best format online this year but needed some guidance, we’re here for you.
I had two EDH resolutions for the new year – to start up some great video content here at GDC, and to dig in deep to artifact decks. We’re getting both started on the right foot. Below you’ll find two videos. The first will show you how to buy cards from bots using the wishlist feature, and build a deck to take into battle. Our fearless leader will be the artifact-loving goblin planeswalker from the C14 set, Daretti, Scrap Savant.
In the second video I’ll show you how to find and play a game online. There are a ton of game options and if you don’t know how to set them up you’ll have a hard time finding or hosting a game. I’ll walk you through it, as well as show you the basic layout of the duel scene and some online gameplay tips to keep your games moving quickly. We’ll play out a game vs. Oona, Narset, and Talrand. Let’s see if our planeswalker friend can master the scrapheap to find victory!
