Flashing in Providence

 “Best dressed man” “Always leaves me wanting more” “The only human I ever need” “I love tapping that” Would you ever imagine thinking these things about Thraben Inspector? That’s just the world we live in now, and the best part is that all of the above is true. In the last few months, this card has risen from mere common filler in your side event draft decks to a Standard...

Three Lessons from PT Hawaii 2016

I should start by introducing myself. My name is Doug Potter, and I had the privilege of representing Wizard's Tower at PT Hawaii. I made this choice since my good friend, and testing partner, Samuel Tharmaratnam has been on team WT for a while now. I love that this site is pushing content out to Canadians, and building a culture of professional play that extends to many Canadians. I came home...

Orzhov ain’t Dead

Black/White control is dead, say the unbelievers; Orzhov-walkers can't keep up with the current meta. Foolish heathens, what do they know? They put their faith in hairy Dwarves and floppy Helicopters. I keep mine where it belongs – In the Church. B/W control is an archetype that we saw dominate, and I mean DOMINATE, standard before Kaladesh dropped on us like a fiery ball of death from the...

Tips for an Efficient Collection

For most players managing a collection of magic cards means a trade binder, some sleeved decks, and an ever-mounting pile of white boxes full of bulk commons and uncommons. I know that’s what I did for a long time, but eventually I started figuring out better ways to manage my cards. While the best method really depends on what you enjoy most about Magic, some of the techniques I use should be...

5 Colour Commander Stand-ins

Some of the great things about Commander as a format are the restrictions built into the rules of the game. One hundred cards, singleton, but one of the most restrictive and yet creativity boosting rules is the Commander Colour Identity, or Rule 3 if you want to get technical. The rules states: A card's colour identity is its colour plus the colour of any mana symbols in the card's rules text. A...

The Time We Mardu’d – Pro Tour Honolulu Recap

"Maybe we can get food at Supercuts?"
- Shahar Shenhar, Magic World Champion 2013 & 2014 His frustration resonated with every one of us. Supercuts is a hair salon that was adjacent to the Subway in which Vidi, Ferney and I were waiting in a 50+ line for food. The first set of draft rounds had ended and thanks to my preparation I had started off 3-0 beating 2 relative unknowns and William...

Double the Heads, Double the Fun

For the last three years or so, Magic has been a pretty strictly competitive endeavour for me. Even when I'm brewing a deck that I know isn't going to be a chart topper, the mindset during its creation is still focused on winning. What's the early-mid-late game plan? What does it do about the most common decks in the meta? What's the perfect mana base? What's the perfect removal suite? But it...
