For those of you who are preparing for the next Magic: The Gathering Prerelease event or any other Sealed events such as launch events or PPTQ, here's a video from the Tolarian Community College that gives you some essential advice when it comes to constructing your Sealed deck. 

The Professor breaks it down in 4 steps: 

1) Sort by color

2) Remove dirt (unplayable cards) 

3) Arrange your cards in logical order

4) Choose and combine your colors

Watch the video:


You'll learn what the acronym BREAD stands for: Bombs, Removals, Evasion, Abilities, and Dirt. BREAD basically shows you the order of having threats and cards that can get rid of your opponents' threats. It also does a fantastic job at discussing the mana curve and creature count templates.
