How to Play Magic the Gathering for Beginners - ASMR Tutorial for Relaxation and Sleep

2773 ratings | 378712 views
As a casual player, I teach you the basics of how to play Magic the Gathering as I walk through a sample game in a soft spoken manner in order to provide ASMR, relaxation and sleep. I'll most likely follow this video up with a look at the modest collection of cards that I own. Thanks for watching. All the best, E.R.

Had to bail around 20 minutes. One knows whether this game is for them or not. My environment , pyschic and otherwise just isn't tuned to it. But I did watch your Candy video just before, so, I guess I get points. Maybe not to attack, but defend.

This card game is unlike Yu-Gi-Oh difficult

I really enjoy your videos. I’m new to ASMR but enjoy the soft spoken dialogue and gentle sounds.

Damn he looks so different bald and clean shaven.
Niemand Nineteen (6 months ago)
People defending him like, "just cause he doesn't know every rule".... I made it 15 minutes into the video and counted at least six errors to rules, three errors to naming, and several errors in pronouncing. And why's dude hand so shaky and finger nails so fucked up? Really seems like he has/had at the time a pill addiction.
Trump (5 months ago)
honestly this guy knows nothing about mtg, what a click-baiting scumbag

You made a mistake in the first combat situation. The white knight had first strike, so it would have killed your creature before it could do damage to it.

Go play magic at your local game shop. Most players will help you learn. I learned by watching over some players shoulder and he was explaining why he was doing his actions. I have been playing for years, but not competitively. I still don't get the game play right. It's one of the most complicated games I've ever played.
CommieCorgi (1 year ago)
I got into this game in 2015. I used my friends deck until mid 2016. I am proud of myself as I built my first deck by myself a month ago. I love the video :)
nice vid again :D

Mikey yep. It's meant to help you relax and go to sleep. If you need this sort of thing, I'd recommend checking out the rest of ER's channel.

Daniel Popejoy (2 years ago)
so to everyone complaining about the whole technicalities of what hes saying go to a fucking magic channel or look up tips and strategies 1) 3 words into his description it says CASUAL player 2) all that matters is you get relaxed by his voice and the atmosphere of the video ya know the whole point of asmr so screw the haters ephemeral rift you keep doing you great job

Dustin Lanter (2 years ago)
Hoo boy. I think it's awesome that you're doing tutorials and demonstrations and what not for Magic among other things in your videos, but this specific video might be worth revisiting. This tutorial is kind of all over the place, which is kind of bad when it comes to MTG. Phases, abilities, and other various rules are pretty crucial to learn right at the start otherwise new players might not really understand what's going on when things start to get more complicated.
DJ Curly (1 year ago)
Dustin Lanter eh if your new (like me) you'll figure it out.... eventually
Shane Sanderson (2 years ago)
Okay seriously, who puts a Conjuring 2 ad before an asmr video? Don't they know people watch this before they sleep or relax?

If a mana says 'add one black or red' to your mana pool, do you pick one color and it remains that color, or can you use it differently each turn as either a black or red?
Gabriel Mazzuca (2 years ago)
Im no expert in the game but normally those abilities are not permanent so the choice only matters when activated. Cards that tap to generate color mana may be used multiple turns but their abilities are activated multiple times actually
candle1987 (2 years ago)
you get to choose what mana it is adding to the pool that turn. on your next turn when you untap everything you can use the card for what ever mana you need. its not permanent

A creature doesn't enter the battlefield tapped, it just can't attack unless it has haste.
DJ Curly not a children's card game though...
DJ Curly (1 year ago)
It's a card game made for children ok? It's not the bible
Tomi Ropponen (2 years ago)
+Skullpainting tru that
Skullpainting (2 years ago)
But if it's tapped it can't block
Tomi Ropponen (2 years ago)
its easier to notice that it cant attack if it enters the battlefield tapped
winstonS (2 years ago)
what happens if at the beginning you don't have any land cards? he said that at the end of a turn there can only be 7 cards. does it mean that you discard a card you already have and draw a new one? can you still play it on the same turn?
Karl Swanson (2 years ago)
+GamoXd812 I know someone with 4 black lotus, (not the 100,000 alpha) 4 out if 5 times he doesn't play land till turn 3
GamoXd812 (2 years ago)
+winstonS If you're playing by tournament rules then you mulligan to 6 cards the first time rather then 7.Be wary there are some hands that don't need lands to be played.
GamoXd812 (2 years ago)
+winstonS No, if you don't get any land in your first hand it is normally an immediate mulligan or reshuffle for a new hand of 7 cards, and if you don't have land in that hand you mulligan again or reshuffle and draw 6 cards, each mulligan after the first reduces the number of cards by 1 till you have only 1 card left.

Magic the gathering is way older than Hearthstone so it would be Hearthstone that is like this game but MTG is far better in my opinion
