Started as green and black moved to green and blue considering green and white. No matter what I'll always use green. :)

Personally, I think Green's philosophy is the best, with White trailing behind.

If you're a hearthstone player : Green: priest, druid White: paladin, shaman Blue: mage Black : warlock Red: warrior, hunter, rogue

This is a great video! Keep up the good work. One small critique is you do talk a bit too fast.

A mono-blue Sphinx commander deck is actually somewhat scary if no one is prepared for it

People seem to like to villainize white. I know that there are misconceptions about white being the color of good when it isn’t necessarily, but the pushback has been ridiculous, painting white as primarily authoritarian and oppressive. White likes law and order, and white villains use it to oppress people, but white heroes see it as a means towards peace and happiness for everyone and are willing to lay down their lives for the good of the world. I’m a white/blue player because I value the best of what these colors represent.
Benjamin J (27 days ago)
Thank you for explaining that! As a White/Green player I love White for the reasons you provide. I just wish more people would understand that all colors have good and bad things about them, but that is what makes them so relatable to begin with.

White if you want an army. Blue if you want to stop that army. Black if you want someone else’s army. Red if you want to kill those armies. Green if you want to be an army.

What blue players think blue makes them: Intelligent, mindfulness, knowledgeable, powerful Reality: Retarded
ACEL713 (4 months ago)
The MtG colors as political-economic philosophies: White = Authoritarians = Only I know what is good for you! So, NO BREAKING THE RULES!! OBEY ME AND LIKE IT!! Blue = Dystopians = Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain! Black = Free Market Capitalist = I would rather earn 1% off a hundred people's efforts than 100% of my own efforts. Red = Anarchists = Down with the man! Green = Libertarians = Social Darwinism, survival of the fittest.

As a black main, I feel a better word to describe Black, is say "Corruption"
DragonmasterSK (4 months ago)
I'm on a mix of Blue and Green... I love nature but I am also curious and want to know about everything. I want to be one with my environment and I also treasure knowledge. I believe it's a good mix of knowledgge and power.

I have an old Wrath of God card which destroys all creatures and an Armaggedon card which destroys all lands. I do well with black and blue in combination myself.

I've recently been introduced to magic with the "Goblins Vs Merfolk" deck, and red is probably my favourite color right now. I really like the strategy of building up a huge game ending combo but having to get it right the first time.

Jake Brose (6 months ago)
I think you should add that Red is chaos. It is chaos first and foremost, it is definitely a passion driven color but it is the opposite of White. Red will take what it wants, it will do what it wants and it will act how it wants, it is by far the most chaotic of the colors, and I don't think you touched on that enough.
Think Tank (6 months ago)
This was great. You explained each color quickly and really accurately.

Just starting out. Can anybody help me with a two-color deck. (I bought the Dominaria Fat Pack).

When I started MTG, I picked Black as my color (tho I later upgraded to B/G), mostly because its gameplay is the most fun for me. I also thought Black is the color least like me - I can basically identify myself with several aspects of any color, but only pragmatism was something I felt like I have in common with Black. I was never selfish, I can often settle for the "least" and I always take others in consideration when I act. Income the color pie and then it struck me - Black is about ambition, determination, clarity of your goal and getting to it, not bothering with distractions or unnecessary consideration of others. And, in its own way, it's also about valuing (and loving) yourself. Those are all things I'm struggling with in my life and all things I am trying to learn. And when I picked a main color to play, I picked Black. I'm sure this is a coincidence... but goddamn it doesn't feel like a coincidence. The game truly is Magic.

If you read the books, players misunderstand white, white are controlling ass holes, they are always trying to conquer other colors

Great video
Zero Ace (1 year ago)
So to summarize, White is focused on swarming and Zerg Rushing, Blue is focused on the grind game, Black is about as directionless as Arcana Force in Yugioh (A bunch of random effects ranging from mere stat boosts to skipping the opponent's turn depending on a coin toss, with Tails always fucking you over in some fashion), Red tends to OTK out the ass but once you start losing card advantage your opponent would have to have a literal heart attack for you to get it back, and Green is focused on beating but has no spot removal, right?
madhatten00 (11 months ago)
true; it depends on what the card's drawback is but generally black cards have some form of limitation that stops them from allowing you to take over too quickly compared to a deck of another color when i mean cost for mana; i mean like in comparison to white or red cards when you're talking about cards that deal direct damage or destroy things on the field white's main drawback is their destroyers either destroy everything or only work on "attacking or blocking" creatures; but their mana total for these cards would be lower ie. 3 compared 4; that kind of thing but yeah if the black card already includes something like deal 2 damage to yourself; then yeah it would have the same mana cost as a card in another deck color for the same effect generally
Zero Ace (11 months ago)
Well if you have to pay life, that's basically no cost
madhatten00 (11 months ago)
Zero Ace Basically. But I wouldn't say black is directionaless. It's the one that aspires to be great at everything allowing it to play in almost any style though the weakness being you sacrifice a lot in exchange ie. Through self inflicted damage, higher Mana costs for effects that would've been at a lower cost in another color, etc.
