View Full Version : why 24 resources?

I've seen this asked by many newer and/or returning players. I will try to answer this in the way I think of things. In a typical aggro/midrange deck you want to miss any of your first 4 resource drops, without ramp or card draw. This means on the play you are seeing 10 cards of your deck. 4 of those you want to be resources. so 4/10. This just happens to be 24 resources. This usually is altered depending on curve, and cheap "cantrip" effects.
