So my friends really like MTG but i've gotten them to try battlecon. I have this and War. The plan is for me, my brother, and 2 friends will be playing Saturday. My brother and I have played but the 2 friends have not. My brother isnt good at explaining rules. How do you think we should set this up and which fighters should we use?

Start as simple as possible. Leave out finishers, special actions, all of it.

For starting fighters, I reccomend Hikaru, Cadenza, Kallistar, or Vanaah.

The way I would do it is to first have the two friends play against each other while you explain the rules and referee their match for them. After that, play a few rounds, swap opponents/fighters, and when you think they're ready, introduce new elements such as ante finishers.

You could also have them check out the Watch It Played tutorial video beforehand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiL1cF9aGSQ

As Ed said, starting with simple characters and no Finishers or Special Actions is probably for the best.
