Play on PC or laptop. I haven't played it on the phone but you really need a decent size screen to play properly.Getting a new phone but yep had looked at this and will be jumping on.
You can always try playing Rakdos (red/black) which gives you the best of both worlds although it tends to be more control than aggro. Rakdos also happens to be decent in the current meta.Thanks mate, lots of good advice. I didn't know much about the difference in colour strategies but it makes more sense now with what my cards could do.
I enjoy controlling the card advantage when I play so think black will be worth a try. Always enjoyed swarming/being aggro in Yugioh so I think the red deck I'm getting will be a good trial.
Once again, I'll try Arena soon.
If you do play arena, I suggest buying the beginners bundle (I think it is around about $5-$10) which comes with some gems and packs (IIRC) and then to build up your wildcard collection, pre-order the 50 pack bundle for each new set (if you can afford it). Spending money on physical items can net you codes to redeem on Arena as well. Attending the in-store pre-release gets you a code for Arena.
Whats the difference of that to say the Planes walker deck?
The difference between a Planeswalker Deck and Commander Deck is that Commander is made for the Commander format which is one of the most popular formats to play. Whereas traditional magic is made for 1v1, Commander typically has 4 players at a time. Some cards are made solely with Commander in mind which is what you typically find in Commander decks. That is why the decks, from what I have seen, are better constructed and synergise a lot better than the Planeswalker decks.
If you want to see the format in action, I suggest The Command Zone on YouTube and their Game Knights episodes. They are a channel devoted strictly to Commander. This is their latest episode:
Another channel I recommend checking out is CovertGoBlue. He is the best Magic Arena streamer (IMO) and at the start of each video he goes over the deck and why he chose certain cards instead of others. It is a great way to learn how to build a deck.
Last but not least, for information on the Planeswalker Decks, Commander Decks, and all those different bundles, your go to should be the Professor at Tolarian Community College.
