What you ACTUALLY need to attend a Magic event!

By Affinity for MTG, 06/13/2019

I feel like too many guides scare away potential paper MTG players but convincing them they need to buy tons of expensive stuff, but I'm here to tell you what you ACTUALLY need to attend a paper MTG event. Yes, there is a TON of awesome gear you can buy to make the experience better, particularly if you plan to play regularly, an we'll go over all of that, but just know that you don't need to break the bank just to go to Friday Night Magic. I hope this is helpful for those of you considering going for the first time!
