The cards are very useful for building really good decks.

Also in the 4 random booster packs I got one Mythic-Rare card which was a great surprize.

My friends and I just started playing Magic recently and we're all hooked.

If you're just learning Magic, the first thing I recommend buying an intro deck from whatever the latest core set is (currently M11). There are a lot of rules and I think it's important to learn on a deck that's designed to function cohesively. If you are happy just having a deck to play with, then that's all you need.

After that, if you are at all interested in building decks or experimenting with different play styles, I definitely recommend getting this kit. From a value perspective, it comes with 4 boosters, which by themselves are worth at least $12, and then you get a storage box with room for extra cards, which is worth a another couple of bucks, so the cards are basically free.

It gives you a bunch basic cards to start putting together decks and try out different play styles. The decks probably wouldn't satisfy experienced players, but it's plenty for learning the ins and outs of how the different colors work. If that's what you're interested in, this is an economical way to get there.

This kit does come with a pamphlet on deck building, but it's not very detailed. I found this article to be really helpful:

What's not to like? That they're the 2011 series and not 2012? Are you playing in State-level or National Tournaments? No? Then that really doesn't matter. Yes? Then why are you even reading the Reviews? You already know if you want this.

For the unitiated it's 100 Land Cards (used to Summon Creatures and Cast Spells) 125 Common & Uncommon cards (your Creatures and Spells), and four 15-card Boosters with random Lands and Spells, and maybe, just maybe, possibly, an Ultra, Mega, Super Rare Foil card! SCORE!!!.

And a cardboard box.

Hey, don't laugh! It's a solid, durable, closeable box, big enough to hold several deck boxes. Okay, so it doesn't come with spare deck boxes (unlike the Fat Packs, which have less cards and are twice the price), but you're getting 285 Magic Cards for $20. That's just 7˘ a card, and 285 cards is also enough to make four, reasonably balanced 60-card decks. It's a very economical buy for someone getting back into the game, or updating an out-dated Deck.

For someone looking to get started you should know it does not have a detailed Instruction booklet but for the most part Magic is an easy game to figure out. And I'll throw this out there. A few weeks ago I called the Wizards of the Coast 1-800 helpline and I was on hold for just a few minutes before speaking to a real person, who was immediately able to answer my question and solve a house rule dispute. Props to WotC.

Yes, there are other Starter Kits, but for the price, the quantity of cards, and the variety of decks you can put together, this is MY choice. Or would be if I was just starting. I'm not, but I still bought it just because it's such an awesome deal!

I gave it 5 stars overall, but just 2 stars for durability. They are playing cards, after all.

The MTG Deckbuilders Toolkit is a great way for new or veteran players to create a useful deck, have many spare cards for existing decks, or get extra mana (land). Each box contains cards that are similar to other toolkits and it is pretty unlikely you will find mythic rares (if at all, I haven't). There are also some randomized cards in there, so you don't always get the same thing with each box. You also get a large amount of basic land (mana), so if you have started with boosters like I did this is SO helpful! Comes with a pamphlet on building decks and more than enough cards for you to make a deck good enough to win! Stick with boosters if you want to discover mythic rares, but for beginners and deck building this one is perfect (and at a great price too).

This product is confusing because there are several different items pictured, and the first two pictures are NOT what this box is. I had already purchased this product (THIS IS THE 2013 DECK BUILDER'S TOOLKIT) for $2 cheaper from Amazon, and from the image thought this was from a different year. Nope, same product, just $2 more expensive and with a misleading image. This is stupid; just buy the same product for $18.05 instead:

just what my son and I needed to build decks -- plenty of cards -- including current cards -- lots of land -- and clear, thoughtful directions in how to build a set. Workds well as a 2-person "Starter Kit" or to supplement what you already have. Definitely worth it!

This was my first time buying a "deck builder's toolkit," but I do have a small MTG card collection and have played casually for many years. For the price, this is a good way to start out or have a fun match-n-grab evening with some friends. For card value directly, you can do better for the cost. 104 of the cards are basic land, and none of the non-booster cards are rares. All of the non-booster cards, 125 of the remaining 181 cards, are either commons (mostly in groups of two, some four) or uncommon (one-ups or pairs). The boosters each contain 14 cards, plus a basic land (counted in the 104 land total above), plus a token or tip card. Of those, each booster contains one rare (making a grand total of four rare cards within the 285 in the kit).

The box is good-quality cardboard with nice graphics, and will likely prove to be fairly durable. It holds around 400 sleeved cards (~500 bare).

Card Count Recap:

Basic Land: 104
Common/Uncommon: 177
Rare: 4
Total Playing Cards: 285
"Bonus" Cards (tokens/tips): 4
