I began playing MTG around Beta/Unlimited but haven't played MTG since about 4th Edition/Fallen Empires/Ice Age.
I have been considering picking the game back up, and could use some suggestions on how to re-learn the game.
I already know that I can pick up a fair amount of commons/uncommons very inexpensively so I'm not concentrating on deck building but rather picking up the rules.
The biggest change I see is the concept of the stack, and the formalization of the rules (which I have a great link to and am browsing through).
I feel I'm probably best off ignoring the plethora of new cards/combos that have appeared on the scene and getting a feel for the flow ... the cards/combos will come from playing and being active again.
I also know that the best way to reinforce this information will be by playing, learning a game is rarely simply academic.
Is there a fairly straightforward strategy for re-learning MTG beyond these steps I've already identified?
