The program allows me to make decks that are fun, but may cost me a few quids.

A few? Some of the cards I'm using probably can't be found anywhere :P
So how many crashes have I survived now?

Either the windows installer link if you run Windows, or the relevant other for whatever else you might have. Looking at the site, it's the first line in the Precompiled Binaries section of the download.

In simplest terms, you play "lands" which give you mana. You then use this mana to summon creatures, cast sorceries, and the more mana it costs to summon/cast the more powerful it is.

I guess the best way to find out, is either spectate on someone having a game, with them explaining as they go.



Also I have a couple of mates who have been giving this a go, so that's good fun, especially as one lives hours away, this is a good way to play. :D
Not sure how :P

So does this program let me watch some of you having a match?

Ok I have a rules clarification because I just learned that the deck construction rules I've been using and quoting are in fact the limited and not constructed the minimum for non limited is in fact 60 cards minimum I feel stupid as hell. But you would think that the rules for a tournament would be more strict not less strict.
