David works on the Magic community team as a content specialist. He spends his days writing about Magic Online and trying to play too many colors at once in Limited.

Modern Masters Weekend came to an end on Sunday, May 31, Modern Masters 2015 Edition events are going on now on Magic Online, and Preliminary Qualifiers for the Modern Festival are coming up on June 24. With all of the excitement around Modern, and a grand prize of one copy of every Modern-legal set for triumphing in the Modern Festival Finals, it's a great time to learn the Modern ropes if you haven't already.

But how does one begin to play Modern? How do you help Sally Standard and Larry Limited get into this exciting format? Let's ask the experts!
