A Second PPTQ Attempt in a format I don’t play (and don’t like)

My dislike of the Modern format is a matter of public record. JitteDivision was hosting a Modern PPTQ at Multizone in Gatineau, and in the days leading up to the event I complained about the format on the Facebook group.

Canadian Icon Phil Samms recommended Abzan Aggro, because he’s boring and old, and, to my surprise, Ron Mackenzie suggested a sort of Junk Hybrid deck he had been playing on MTGO. Normally Ron...

Modern Masters 2015: What Could Have Been

On May 8th Wizards of the Coast released the full spoiler for Modern Masters 2015, a set designed to increase the supply of cards in high demand for modern play, but also to create an exciting (albeit short-lived and expensive) limited format. While the first 50 cards spoiled appealed to players looking for relief from high priced modern staples, the last 200 spoiled cards were almost exclusively...
