Getting Started on Magic Online for $20

Magic Online has been getting a bad rap in the community lately. However, the truth is while it is far from perfect, it is perfectly acceptable 99% of the time. If you love Magic the Gathering, you'll love Magic Online. I know the task of building an online collection is daunting, so I put together a complete guide for getting started on Magic Online for under $20. If you are sufficiently skilled, with the initial $20 you can play for free and earn tickets towards more cards. In the video, we'll walk through all the steps needed to get started with MTGO.
