card playing strategies that would help a player and combos
If you run Control do your absolute best at being as
as possible to your opponents
The more counterspells and smug looks the better for control
A general rule of playing magic is to play creatures without haste that won't be relevant to the current combat in the second main phase to bait removal on your already played creatures and to keep mana open on options.
On the topic of baiting removal, casting a threatening creature on the turn before casting the creature you really want on the battlefield.
If you keep lands in your hand and take time to think in response to opponent's actions, they think you have removals or counter spells. Sometimes it slows your opponents down.
If you are new to the game, my best advice for you would be to regularly attend Friday Night Magic at a local game store. I would say that the best way for a beginner to learn is to be absolutely stomped on by better players, for almost everything I have learnt about the basics of Magic strategy have come from seeing how people have beaten me.
If you're more of an enfranchised player, I would say that you should watch the streams of professional players. Streams by players such as Reid Duke, Ben Stark, Luis Scott-Vargas, and Andrea Mengucci are truly brilliant, and often contain a lot of insight on how you can get better at playing Modern, Standard, Legacy, or, nowadays, Pioneer.
Here's a weird and cool combo for modern (although you could adapt it to pioneer probably):

I don't know how to do strategies.
Oh yeah, think I went to the pre-realease for "Ounsalagut".
A Door Opens. A Demon Awakens...
Close the door! Close the dooooooooooooooor!

Love isn't always on time!
Okay, level with me here this deck:
This deck has a combo where you use Rampage of the Clans to blow up your own Food tokens and turn them into 3/3 centaurs.
This is a good video on strategy in MtG:
