Looking for an updated version of this video? Look no further than here: https://youtu.be/VKCCM8Uvm8U The Best Deck Boxes & Vaults: http://youtu.be/14WpmcfVbFs The Best Gaming Cases: http://youtu.be/2Aw3j3Mj5Ls A Guide To Playmats: http://youtu.be/0HOjmAB4WaA What Are The Best Binders: http://youtu.be/H5IauASYWjk The Best Card Sleeves: http://youtu.be/w-aAeIZSNWw Building a sealed deck can be an exciting process, but it can also feel daunting or even overwhelming for a player new to the format. Even experienced Magic players sometimes don't know the basic process used when building a sealed deck. This video will guide you through that process and hopefully help you at future prerelease, launch, and other sealed events. However, there are some basic rules that are universal. The first is the BREAD method. While much more relevant in draft, the BREAD method is still very helpful in sealed to guide you in placing your cards in logical order. BREAD is an acronym that means BOMBS, REMOVAL, EVASION, ABILITIES, and DIRT. We've already mentioned that DIRT are the cards that are more or less unplayable. Hopefully you've already removed these cards from our piles. Bombs are your biggest threats. They are the cards where, if you opponent can not get rid of them fast, they will "go off" and win you the game. Removal is your way of dealing with your opponents threats. Removal can be counter spells, effects that return cards to your opponents hand or their deck, destroy or exile effects, ect. Removal removes the threat. Evasion refers to attackers who have some way of preventing or trying to prevent your opponents from blocking. This means flying creatures, creatures with intimidate, trample, abilities like that. Abilities means any remaining cards that don't win you the game, but do HELP you win the game. So any creatures, artifacts, etc. that have abilities other than mana abilities would be in this category as well. But let's boil all of this down to a simple rule: You want threats, and you want answers to your opponents threats.

Prerelease is so much fun! This will be my second or third one but I’ve never been more hype for a prerelease before!
Miguel Rose (2 months ago)
Why is it a bad idea to build a ,,second" Deck out of your sideboard? I mean when you play Gruul in the first two rounds and then switch your green cards for blue ones and play Izzet in the third round it could surprise your opponent, or am i wrong?
miguel silva (2 months ago)
IMO if you're building a deck for prerelease you're gonna be using your best cards of the best color that you got out of the boosters, the second deck might be a waste of time and be garbage in the end

You can tell the audio quality has gotten much better in your equipment since 2014. Which is great because I love your channel and content and can hear the value paying off for you and us.

I used this guide for my first draft event, which led me to winning one of my matches! This was a great precursory tool for a new player such as myself. I thank you for making me feel comfortable with trying something I've wanted to get into for a while. I have already signed up for this FNM's draft and am very much looking forward to it.

I like your videos, but you gotta record with less audio gain so you're not peaking.

Going to my first magic event this weekend (dominaria pre-release) and this has eased my nerves so much.
Jeff Llamas (1 year ago)
(Probably) the best sealed deck primer there is. Well-explained and simplified. I've been playing for over two decades now but still need to review every once in a while especially when attending PR events. I feel much more comfortable heading to this weekend's homecoming to Dominaria after watching this. :)

Max Gray (1 year ago)
I’m not very good at this but why is Mind Rot dirt?
OoJJBoO (1 year ago)
I'm not sure, but maybe it's to expensive for what it does? Also I think it isn't really that useful in a limited deck, since you most likely have better options to choose from. But I'm far from being an expert on this topic, so feel free to correct me ^^
TOBG Show (1 year ago)
I'm going to be re-re-rewatching this video while I prep for the Dominaria prerelease!

Tim Aulph (1 year ago)
I left the game a few years ago. I was a casual player and only got to play a few times out of the year. I was recently asked to join a playgroup, so, I decided to play again. Since they will be playing sealed and I never played that format before, I needed this video! I knew right where to go! Even after 4 years, this video is still relevant and will help me with my Ixalan sealed deck play. Thanks Professor, and since I will playing again, I have re-subscribed to your channel!
