Magic the Gathering (MtG) is a collectable card game for 2 or more players. Each game represents a battle between powerful wizards known as Planeswalkers, who have the ability to travel the multiverse.
Players will cast spells, summon creatures and deploy artifacts to overcome their opponents. Typically, a player will win by reducing their opponents starting life points to zero, but there are other paths to victory.
To play the game, each player will need a deck of at least 60 cards. Players may use pre-constructed decks or customised decks created from their personal card collection.
Core Set 2020 is the 19th MtG core set, released on 12 July 2019. The set is comprised of 280 cards: 112 commons, 80 uncommons, 53 rares, 15 mythic rares, and 20 basic lands.

A rules change was introduced to coincide with the release of this set. As of 5 July 2019 the London Mulligan has been used for all play.

The player then draws a new hand of cards, equal to the size of their starting hand – This action may be repeated. The player then places X cards from their hand, on the bottom of their library. The value of X equals the number of times a mulligan was taken.
