Search the classifieds for bots that give free cards. There are two that I know of that will give 64 free common cards a month, and one that will give 4 free common cards a week if you answer a trivia question correctly. Watch out though, there are a ton that have ads up that say "free trade no tix required." Those aren't going to give you anything for free, they are just trying to lure you in.
I am not in front of my own computer right now, due to work, but you have one called something Academy freebot (sorry for not remembering it correctly...),and the free card bot, and the quiz bot.I believe that is the three alternatives when it comes to free cards. The quizbot will only give you 4 free cards, if you answer correctl. It is a fun concept, and four is better than none.Other than that, welcome to the magic game, and also please, please refrain from sinking so low as to asking for free cards from everyone you meet. -it is per se nothing wrong in doing so, there are also people out there willing to give you a hand (literally), but do find the soul of the game, -learn how to trade. More people will be able to gain something from it.
