    I played a similar deck against my wife who wanted to get me back into magic after an over 15 year hiatus. I built a deck from the slew of cards she had, specifically engineered to multiply attack power, defense, life points, and minions, and ultimately after 45 minutes had over 300 monsters on the field with double digit attack and defense, and over 100 hit points of life and was literally toying with her.
    Needless to say we don’t play magic (or any other strategy game) much..

    So are we gonna ignore that he called Minesweeper an online game?

    Thanks for watching, Super Nerds! I know this one is a bit dense, but being the MTG nerd that I am, I wanted to try an experiment. And *below is the full set-up of the deck* and a link to the paper if you’re interested (it’s very complicated!): https://arxiv.org/abs/1904.09828 and if you like Magic and/or EDH, please subscribe to The Command Zone, the only magic podcast I listen to: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLsiaNUb42gRAP7ewbJ0ecQ — kH

    2) Play Fathom Feeder, Reito Lantern, Lotus petal, demonstrate loop where cast—sac—lantern—fathom feeder to exile rest of Josh’s library.

    3) Play Karn, exile card from Josh’s hand. Demonstrate loop with Capsize to exile all cards from Josh’s hand and all permanents he controls.

    4) Cast Infest, in response Cleansing Beam (fathom feeder), Coalition Victory, Soul Snuffers, Gix

    a. Give cloaks to 36 XN and RR.

    9) Using Riptide Replicator and Capsize, create 36 creature tokens of varying power and toughness, using 18 different creature types we are going to use as symbols in our program.

    10) Using Prismatic Lace, Glamerdye, Artificial Evolution and the Djinn, change text, creature type, and color of pretty much all my permanents.
    a. All XN + RR going to be red, black, green, and white, and are going to make different creature tokens of a different color, according to our program.
    b. All tape tokens to the left of the 2/2 orc are going to be green, all to the left will be white.
    c. Our Fungus is going to be white and give counter to “incarnations” instead of slivers
    d. Dread of night is going to look for “black” creatures instead of white.
    e. Olivia Voldaren to make Assembly Workers instead of Vampires

    11) Cast Donate 41 times. Give Josh all the hacked RR and XN, the Wild Evocation, a copy of the Vigor and the Archon.

  4. anoneeemous ly on December 5, 2019 at 7:10 pm

    I have no idea how this game works and at 8:23 it looks like they suddenly didn’t know what was happening either lol



  5. alberto verdugo arreguin on December 5, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    i want someone to do this to somebody in a real tournament just to flex and then forfeit



  6. Brayden Martin on December 5, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    I saw command zone and instantly liked



  7. ZuuTube on December 5, 2019 at 7:14 pm

    someone explain how he has unlimited mana please, i read it numerous times but to me it looks as if he has to use 2 mana to untap the artifact when enchanted



  8. Zulda on December 5, 2019 at 7:15 pm

    Me: you wanna mtg?
    Friend: don’t you have math homework?
    Me: exactly



  9. Russell Morrisey on December 5, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    The real takeaway is that Grim Monolith/Power Artifact should not be tournament legal.



  10. ytkob on December 5, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    my brain hurts



  11. Kot Haufen on December 5, 2019 at 7:17 pm

    But can you program Magic The Gathering: Arena with Magic The Gathering?



  12. Irfan Saif on December 5, 2019 at 7:17 pm

    That moment when your Mt:G "computer" deck is probably more expensive than a brand new Ryzen threadripper processor…



  13. pain648 on December 5, 2019 at 7:20 pm

    "But it doesn’t do anything!"
    "No, it does nothing"



  14. Kano on December 5, 2019 at 7:22 pm

    bethesda pls no



  15. Disthron on December 5, 2019 at 7:25 pm

    Don’t you loos if your deck is empty?



  16. Upr15lng M4ndl3b4rs on December 5, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    that’s god damn impressive



  17. Theo Lopez on December 5, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    lol this deck is more expensive than computers nowadays



  18. supxp suuupxp on December 5, 2019 at 7:32 pm

    what are the chances of that happening in a real game.



  19. Oliver Downing on December 5, 2019 at 7:35 pm

    Turing complete languages can’t program everything as there are no conditional statements.



  20. Jesús Antonio Hernández Zamora on December 5, 2019 at 7:35 pm

    Please "Prank" some real player and force him to witness it all.



  21. Decinoge Secra on December 5, 2019 at 7:36 pm

    grim monolith + power artifact =
    UNLIMITED POWER



  22. febernier on December 5, 2019 at 7:37 pm

    Is not Wizard of the Coast ou create Magic Tha Gathering! Is Richard Garfield ou create it ,



  23. Starfury117 on December 5, 2019 at 7:38 pm

    Shouldnt infest kill all the xathrid necromancers?



  24. Spike2501 on December 5, 2019 at 7:40 pm

    OF COURSE the deck is full of blue cards.



  25. Mattia Garimanno on December 5, 2019 at 7:41 pm

    Thank you, Kyle, for bringing back to my memory this awesome game that I’ve stopped playing for too long!
    Definitely will bring back my old decks out from the dust of time…



  26. Sarah Miller on December 5, 2019 at 7:42 pm

    …DID HE MEMORIZE HOW TO DO THAT???
    That is the most impressive part of this video.



  27. Random Rick Reviews RRR on December 5, 2019 at 7:44 pm

    LOL@the Darkness of Yugioh yeah wth.



  28. Ryan Stephen on December 5, 2019 at 7:45 pm

    You can untap the card that you tap to allow you to untap?



  29. Spirit of the Wolf on December 5, 2019 at 7:45 pm

    1:05 Me: *dreams crushed*



  30. Gerson Mendoza on December 5, 2019 at 7:46 pm

    This was a great episode! My favorite part was the Sriracha bottle in the background 😂
    But really though love stuff like this and really liked those guys as well!



  31. Christopher Forbes on December 5, 2019 at 7:46 pm

    that start sounds like vsauce



  32. Cerno B on December 5, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    I made a follow-up video that explains how a Magic Turing Machine compiler could look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzXoFldEux4.



  33. Eduardo Sella on December 5, 2019 at 7:51 pm

    The game is amazing but the people who goto those tourneys are perverts, I call them the pedoplay network



  34. Count Noctilus on December 5, 2019 at 7:52 pm

    I Wonder how far (or close) Yu Gi Oh is from being turing complete.



  35. Aaron knight on December 5, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    Now the real question can this be done in EDH?



  36. Concon Gaming on December 5, 2019 at 7:55 pm

    Insanely expensive



  37. m. t. frnndz on December 5, 2019 at 7:56 pm

    Eventually it’ll be "We built a QUANTUM COMPUTER in Magic: The Gathering"



  38. Jonah French-Jurgens on December 5, 2019 at 7:56 pm

    So I know this video is a month old at this point, but it might be worth saying that I’ve been doing a lot of playing around, and Yugioh actually might also work for this purpose and in a similar way! I’ve put card names / archetypes in bold text. Prepare to be bored out of your mind!

    Since there are a veritable plethora of game states in Yugioh that can lock your opponent out completely wile allowing you to fill their field with a number of different cards of your choice (as is the case with a modified Duston + Mystic Mine lockdown), if combined with a looping game state tactic (like the Primal Seed loop, which can easily run in a Duston deck and has the added bonus of allowing you to infinitely play any card you desire) you might be able to set up a tape, and any number of different types of counters (which are essentially infinitely stackable points you can put on cards) could potentially be used as data on that strip.

    Due to the simplicity of adding, removing, and shifting counters in Yugioh, you could quite easily read, write, or modify the data on each card. Specifically, you could accomplish this with cards like Pitch Black Power Stone being able to move counters freely, Magical Citadel of Endymion being able to infinitely generate and remove counters with the aforementioned Primal Seed loop (assuming you have an effect that removes spell counters for cost), and a couple of spellcaster cards that are able to remove counters from anywhere on the field to activate effects in order to remove unwanted counters. (I’ve found that in practice, sometimes cards that can remove counters from anywhere are needed to keep the area clean enough to actually comprehend. Things can get out of hand fast.)

    And because I’m not nearly smart enough to actually pull this off, that’s all I’ve really got for now. But I hope I caught the attention of someone smarter than me who can actually put it all together. (Also, if by some miracle you see this, hi Kyle! Keep on being incredible!)



  39. v5p4c3m0nk3y on December 5, 2019 at 7:56 pm

    Did he just confirm Half Life 3?



  40. Shadow Alex on December 5, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    But does it run Minecraft?



  41. SheepeyDarkness on December 5, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    But can it run crysis?



  42. Jim Finch on December 5, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    SUCH evil! Allowing Josh to know that it’s possible. You KNOW he’s just going to have half an hour turns now that essentially kills everyone at the table within 2 rounds. @@



  43. Taboo X on December 5, 2019 at 7:59 pm

    Your Mind Over Matter deck was cool.



  44. V Nighthawk on December 5, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    Did you voice robin from original teen titans ? Be real with me…



  45. Red Star on December 5, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    I only went to this video to ask you to make one on the science of the yugioh duel disk.



  46. Eric Petersen on December 5, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    Install windows… Download minecraft… start playing… build a computer in minecraft… program your minecraft computer to play doom… all on a deck of cards… Freinds annoyed…



  47. DrDingo on December 5, 2019 at 8:02 pm

    HELL YEAH THE COMMAND ZONE



  48. Valentino Reid on December 5, 2019 at 8:03 pm

    This reminds me of the book, "Three Body Problem" except instead of cards they used soldiers holding flags to make their computer



  49. John on December 5, 2019 at 8:03 pm

    TL;DR



  50. hudson Tinch on December 5, 2019 at 8:07 pm

    Hi I was wondering if some one could calculate how many possible decks there are in magic the gathering I think it would be a super fun video idea or if some one in the comments knew I would love to know
