    hey guys I just got into the beta. How am I supposed to start playing? All the formats cost gems and I have to pay for the gems? Can I not play without paying?

    The entry fee for most of the stuff can be paid with either Gems or Gold (apart from iirc Competitive Draft which is gems only).

    You should be spending most of your early time in the ladder (it's there, hit the play button and it should bring up a list, swear to dog, the interface on this thing is atrocious), it's a single Bo1 match with no entry fee, it lets you earn geld from quests and win rewards, should be possible to earn about 1k per day and a bunch of cards, depends on the quest and how well you do.
    That's enough for a booster, two runs in Quick Constructed or one run of Competitive Constructed, so pick your poison. Ive yet to try draft myslef, so you'll have to see that one for yourself, but the entry is quite steep.

    I wouldn't touch the stuff with entry fee until you get yourself a deck that can reliably win at least 60% of the time. With all the free giveaways, you should have a bunch of staples for mono red, UW control and a BG ballista constrictor deck,
    it pretty much depends on what you pulled from the starters and packs. Unfortunately, every yokel out there seems to be playing just those three decks.

    My control deck plays 26 lands. I am constantly stuck on 3. My goblin deck plays 22 lands. I never see less than 5 in the first turns.

    Half the meta is UW and UB control, people preside like motherfuckers.
    Also, people want quick wins in the ladder, so an early Durex tells you if you should just concede and move on with your life.
