What makes a deck midrange?
Midrange. A typical midrange deck has an early game plan of mana ramp and control, but begins to play threats once it reaches four to six mana. A midrange deck will often seek to play a reactive, attrition-based game against aggro decks and a more proactive, tempo-based game against control decks.
How many creatures should be in a 60 card Magic deck?
For anyone’s first deck, I recommend a good balance of creatures coupled with other cards. If you’re playing with 23 lands, I think about 20 creatures to 22 creatures is a solid place to be. This will put you at 43 to 45 cards out of your minimum 60 and help to ensure that you’re not just swept off the table.

How many lands should I have in my deck?
The basic rule of thumb is that you play 17-18 lands in a 40 card deck, and 24 lands in a 60 card deck. If you are playing more than a couple cards with mana costs of five or higher, increase the number of lands.
How many lands should an 80 card deck have?
Quick Yorion math: if the 60 card build of your deck would play 24 lands, you’ll draw lands are roughly the same rate in your 80 cards deck with 32 lands.
How many creatures can be in a 40 card deck?
Usually, my draft decks tend to aim for 16-17, 6-7 other spells, and 17 lands. Generally, if you end up with 19-20+ creatures your deck is going to be aggressive but insufficiently versatile. If you end up with 11 or fewer creatures your deck may have lots of “answers” but a shortage of ways to actually win the game.

Is it bad to have more than 60 cards in a magic deck?
Pushing your deck above 60 (or 40) cards makes it harder to find key cards, increases the risk of “mana flood” (drawing only lands, so you have nothing to cast) and “mana screw” (drawing too few lands, so you can’t cast any of the spells in your hand), and makes it more likely that you’ll draw unplayable hands.
How big can a magic deck be?
There is no maximum deck size, however, the player must be able to shuffle their deck unassisted. Players may have a sideboard of up to a maximum of 15 cards, and exchanges of cards between games are not required to be on a one-for-one basis, so long as the player adheres to the 60 card minimum deck size.
