MTG Essentials - Upgraded version of the MTG Basic Rulebook

Postby MTGCardslist » 27 Nov 2016, 07:05


I've been working on a book containing everything there is to know about MTG since about 2012.

It was fun to make and lately i've made a complete new design for the rulebook.
The latest version of the document is available over here. ... GJW1a?dl=0

The document is available in Word and PDF format and average about 127 pages.
It is as big as 300 megs because of the pictures.

It was made as an image of the Basic Rulebook offered by MTG. As a comparaison, the M14 Rulebook has 36 pages.

Here is a quick overview of the document:
