Note: This is Part 3 of a series. Go here to see part 1.


These are the rules and cards used for the advanced level of Baby Steps, which is the third level of difficulty. The beginner level rules for Baby Steps must be understood before the rules provided in this file can be understood. You are meant to start with the beginning level.

The advanced level includes rules for the following:

  1. The stack
  2. New turn order rules
  3. Two new card types: Instants and artifacts
  4. Triggered abilities
  5. The following effects: counter effects, copy effects, and redirect effects
  6. The following keywords: flash, intimidate, landwalk, defender, trample

This time I advise you to print two copies of each advanced level card, and to use these cards to make two color decks. See the rulebook for more information and more options.

The cards

Here are links to PDF files that contain the cards. The cards images can be cut out and pasted onto real Magic cards:

  1. Cards 1-9
  2. Cards 10-18
  3. Cards 19-27
  4. Cards 28-36
  5. Cards 37-45
  6. Cards 46-50

Simplified Rulebook

I wrote this rulebook that can be used with the advanced version of Baby Steps, which is only six pages (much less than the hundreds of pages that real Magic uses).
