5. Remembering Cards Improves Your Imagination

Just about everyone wishes they could be more imaginative. Knowing how to memorize a deck of cards can help your imagination grow on a daily basis. All you have to do is carry a deck of cards in your pocket. Or, if you don’t want your memorize a deck of cards mnemonics linked to a physical deck of cards, you can use a memorize a deck of cards app.


Returning cards to the deck:

Use this call to return cards which have been drawn or cards from a pile back to the main deck to re-use. Both versions can take the cards parameter for a list of cards to return (if valid).

Should You Play More Than 60* Cards in Your Deck?

*or 100 in Commander, 40 in Limited

In short – NO. A bit longer explanation is – no, unless you’re playing Battle of Wits in your deck, or have Yorion, Sky Nomad as your companion.

The longer explanation is still quite simple. Some cards in your deck are just better than others. Let’s say that the best card in your deck is a powerful planeswalker like Sorin the Mirthless. You play four copies of it, and you really want to play it on turn 4.

By the fourth turn, you usually draw 10-11 cards. For our calculation, we’ll propose you drew 10 of them, but the same principle applies for any other number. If you’re playing 60 cards, you have 52.8% of drawing Sorin by turn 4.

Now if you have only one extra card, and you’re playing a 61-card deck, your chances fall down to 52.1%. Yeah, it’s only 0.7%, but it is worse. You shouldn’t make your deck worse, just because you don’t know which card to remove. Take a look at how your chances of drawing your best card go down when you add more cards to your deck:

Now, if the question is – can I play more than 60 cards – the answer would be: Yes, but you shouldn’t do it if you really want to win. If you just want to have fun and don’t care about losing, feel free to play as many as you like. Just not in Commander and Brawl, since those formats require an exact number of cards.

Mill Supports in Magic

Remember that the effectiveness of mill decks partially depends on your preferred format. 100-card commander decks will be hard to deplete, 60-card standard decks are a fair challenge, and 40-card draft decks are easy prey—if you hunt down the proper mill cards during the draft. You can also support mill strategies with cards like "Jace's Phantasm," which strengthen based on opposing graveyards.

When you see mono-blue or blue-black themes, be ready for a deck attack; try to overwhelm martially weak millers before they ransack your library. But for now, as we await Wizards of the Coast's next expansion of deck-weakening spells, vote for your favorite card and I'll see you at our next MTG countdown!

11. Youll Experience Untold Waves Of Accomplishment From Card Memorization

When was the last time you felt proud of yourself?

I mean, really proud?

Be honest and don’t worry if it’s been awhile.

With card memory skills, you can feel proud each and every day of your life.

I know self-pride strikes some people as fickle, but it’s not. The normal need for self-confidence is what extraordinary people use to keep their memory sharp and help fend off “digital dementia.”

I’m in no way claiming that mental exercise medically prevents brain disease, but it’s positively logical to assume there are physical benefits at work.These visualization exercises will help.

A Partial Deck:

If you want to use a partial deck, then you can pass the card codes you want to use using the cards parameter. Separate the card codes with commas, and each card code is a just a two character case-insensitive string:

  1. The value, one of A (for an ace), 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0 (for a ten), J (jack), Q (queen), or K (king);
  2. The suit, one of S (Spades), D (Diamonds), C (Clubs), or H (Hearts).

In this example, we are asking for a deck consisting of all the aces, twos, and kings.

6. Sphinxs Tutelage

CMC: 3

Like Sanity, Tutelage is a three-cost blue enchantment with several colorless slots, blending well in multi-color decks. Whenever you draw a card, it mills two cards from an opponent's deck, and if they're both non-lands that share a color, you repeat the process! With a little luck, this dramatically burns through cards, especially against mono-color builds.

Tutelage also grants you the ability to spend six mana to draw and discard one card. That's an expensive price, but it's useful when you have nothing else to play and it triggers the mill. And for larger play groups, consider alternative spell "Psychic Corrosion," which has a weaker effect but hits multiple foes.
