Pauper’s Magic Draft

  1. Shuffle your collection of Magic: The Gathering cards, and place 120 face-up on the table.
  2. Shuffle your collection of lands, and place 60 face-up on the table.
  3. Both players take turns choosing one card each to build a thirty-card deck.
  4. Players play three games of Magic. The winner of two or more games wins overall.


  • Card quality doesn’t matter, since both players are choosing from the same selection.
  • Every game is different, since the card pool players can choose from is randomly selected.
  • A new dimension of strategy is introduced, since you draft your deck in response to your opponent’s drafts.
