Free, Live, 1-on-1 Tutor Sessions to Introduce you to MTGO

Amonkhet will release on Magic Online before the official Paper release for the first time in Magic Online's history.  As such, we're anticipating a large influx of new players to MTGO looking to play AKH straight away.  Magic Online software can, at times, be less than intuitive and difficult to navigate for new players.  Our goal with this pilot program is to provide live, 1-on-1 training sessions to players who are new to MTGO so they can get the most out of their time on MTGO and avoid struggling with the basics. 

Are These Sessions Really Free?

Yes.  Free.  Your session will be scheduled with a Cardhoarder agent, so you know they will be familiar with MTGO and able to answer your basic questions about MTGO or provide you high level overviews of MTGO topics to help you get started.  We are of course paying our employees for the time they spend with you, so availability may be limited.  We will offer sessions for the first two weeks of the MTGO AKH release as a pilot to this program to gauge community interest.

The skeptics may be looking for the catch here.  At Cardhoarder we have many programs that we do in order to benefit the community as a whole, and this program is one we've been considering for a long time.  With an early MTGO release of AKH, it seemed like a perfect time to pilot the program and see if it is something we can offer on the long term.  Your session will be with a Cardhoarder employee, but like our Beginner's Guide, they will do their best to be as unbiased as possible.  If you are looking for information on how to trade with bots or buy cards from websites, we will provide that information in the context of using our own services - but of course you have no obligation to purchase anything from us, and we'd be happy to recommend some of our competitors if you're looking for additional places to shop with.

What Topics Can We Discuss?

This will not be a set curriculum or anything very structured.  You will join an appear.in session with the Cardhoarder Agent assigned to your session, and you can let them know the topics you'd like to cover, in order of priority.  You can ask questions as much as you'd like - our goal is to make you more comfortable with the MTGO client - so you're the boss in these sessions!

A broad list of suggested topics include:

  • Communicating on MTGO
  • In-Duel Settings for MTGO Games
  • How to Play in Events on MTGO
  • How to Buy things from the MTGO store
  • Trading with Bots and Third-Party Websites (will highlight Cardhoarder services)
  • How to Sell Things from your Collection
  • Collection Management on MTGO
  • MTGO Economic Overview: Tickets and Prices (this topic can get heavy, this would be kept to very high level items)
  • Playing MTGO on a Budget
  • Shortcuts and Tricks on MTGO

How Can I Sign Up?

The time slots below will be updated as much as we are able to show sessions still available (all times are Eastern Daylight Time (EDT)).  Slots will be reserved for users on a first-come, first served basis.  Each slot is 30 minutes long, limited to one per person.  To reserve a spot, please send an email to support@cardhoarder.com with the following information:

  • Desired time slot - date & time
  • Back-up time slot (if someone has already requested your first choice) - date & time
  • Your MTGO username
  • Confirmation that you have tested appear.in and that it works on your machine with MTGO
