How to Shuffle a Magic the Gathering Deck

Introduction: How to Shuffle a Magic the Gathering Deck

Magic: The Gathering is one of the most popular card games in the world. This lesson will show you how to properly shuffle a deck so little damage will be done to your cards.

Remember it does not matter how many cards your opponent moves.

    This is at best a method to count your cards, you are not shuffleing them at all. If you want to effectively shuffle sleeved cards without damaging them, the mash shuffle is probably your best choice. In addition to that, making packs to 'shuffle' your cards would not be allowed in a turnament, as it is very easy to bring large parts of your deck into a desirable order.
