Sort order. Quote from uberdylan. Also, the chapters dealing with limited, focused in Shards of Alara block, are obviously horribly outdated.

Still, it's always good to get another persepctive. Nov 10, Brandon Pierson added it. This book or graphic novel was an in depth guide about MTG gameplay theory, and strategy. It has a good balance of visuals, versus text, to give readers a visual aid while reading. This book attack the game at all angles, and while that is a daunting task, Patrick Chapin has the experience to do that.
Anyone wanting to get better at MTG should read this, or if you like similar games, since game theory is universal. Apr 25, Stefano Black rated it liked it Recommends it for: Competitive Magic players. A nice solid framework for thinking more clearly about deckbuilding and lines of play in MTG, from one of the game's greats.
One lesson here actually hit home for me in many areas of life: But if you aim to be perfect at it, then falling short means you're only amazing. Jun 28, Danii Nebot rated it it was ok.
As much as I love getting insight from one of the game's most insightful minds mr. Chapin, "the innovator" the truth is this feels more like a collection of Magic articles than a honest book.
Also, the chapters dealing with limited, focused in Shards of Alara block, are obviously horribly outdated. Just skip this one and go read Next Level Decibuilding! Oct 31, linuxmuso rated it really liked it Shelves: Chapin definitively hits the mark on all aspects in playing the game of Magic.
I will be using this book in the future as a good resource when my game needs a little more pep in it's step.
Well worth the buy! Aug 13, William Orellana santamaria rated it really liked it. The book deals with very general ideas on game strategy. I liked it.

I build a lot of my own decks as well - nothing in there that could take a seasoned deckbuilder to "pro level"? If anyone could post a table of contents for each book that would help give me an idea of the topics being covered - it would be most kind! Wizard Mentor.
If you want to get better at magic on an analytical basis, you should do your own research and come up with your own rules. Additionally, most of the books I came across such as these are eloquent empty words. It's like those pickup artist books: If Chapin won every single time, maybe I'd buy his book.
But as it stands, magic is a relatively new and young game. Many of the theories exist out there in other games like poker or blackjack or 8s. A great understanding of probabilities, trade, statistics and overall an experience of the current metas whatever format you play is what will net you the wits needed to build better decks and play better. If you want to get better at magic, learn the basics behind the simpler games using a standard 52 card deck. Poker is amazing at that since you take probabilities to the extreme.
Afterwards, read all the rules in magic and understand how the game actually works. Believe it or not, you will always have an advantage over someone that doesn't know what the rules are since it limits their choices. Learn how choices and statistics work together.
If I play this but draw that, I will be behind.
If I do this, he has that and I draw this, I can do that. And so on. Learn how mechanics allow you to circumvent disadvantage and finally, practice practice practice.
Finally, learn about the meta. Who are the big decks, how do they work? Play them and understand them. Essentially, do your homework yourself rather than believing what a book says.
Many times, I disagree with pros and Chapin over small things. Take lands and the probability of getting a good chance of curving out properly for example. That's nice but most of the time it ignores ramp or what happens in the following turns.
My opinion on this anyways. Take it or leave it. X Ops! All splels!
