Magic: The Gathering is the first modern collectible card game. Magic has inspired more than 20 million fans over 25 years, from the first dragons and angels to today’s planeswalkers and Commander decks. It works like this. You can buy cards, play with them, trade them, and collect them. You can play in different formats. For Standard play, each player builds a 60-card deck, using the cards in their collection. Each player begins the game with 20 life. You win the game by reducing your opponent’s life total from 20 to 0. Join a community of players, fans, artists, and more from all around the world, all united by a love of Magic.
