Budget Brew: Frontier Atarka Red

Howdy Budget Brewers! It's that time of the week for us to take a gander at some of the more budget options we can play at our local FNM's.

It's true, janky combo's are my bread and butter but I've been known to sprinkle in a dash of control or a smidgen of aggro. Then, sometimes a...

Try 2HG with your Group

I started playing Magic with the 3rd edition when I was 15. Since then, Magic has always been the one game that really followed us. Friends and family would gather to escape our day to day routine for the ephemeral time of an evening. Some people prefer to get together and play Poker, on our end, it’s always been Magic. That being said, as our group mainly consists of casual players, most of...

Casual Variants: Two new ways to play sealed

Despite the number of officially sanctioned formats in Magic, players can’t seem to help tinkering with the rules of the game. Sometimes it’s unintentional - like when I first learned the game from a 4th edition rule book and thought you had to pay the mana cost of a creature to untap it ( was so broken), but usually it’s small “house rules” like allowing one free mulligan or banning...

Going for the Gold: Prepping for 2017

If you ask Magic Players what they want, you’ll hear a couple answers: Queue for their first Pro Tour, hit Silver, Top 8 or win a Grand Prix or Pro Tour, etc. the list goes on and on. But despite how naturally talented you are in the game, one thing is consistent and that is preparation. The great Ben Franklin once said “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”. Now I don’t think...

Daily Dose of Aether Revolt – Taking Advantage of Artifacts

Welcome to another edition of the Daily Dose of Aether Revolt where today I have a couple of sweet preview cards to go over including the return of a Planeswalker. Back in one of the previous artifact blocks during Shards of Alara we saw the emergence of a new Planeswalker called Tezzeret. This powerful Planeswalker seemed to be one with the artifacts, being able to manipulate them to his will...

Giving Frontier a Chance

If you have not yet heard, there’s a new format stirring in the world of Magic called Frontier. It is effectively “new Modern” with legal sets starting at Magic 2015 and Khans of Tarkir instead of 8th edition and Mirrodin, and nothing is banned. The format has no official support, but is being pushed by some large gaming stores in Japan and is making waves across the internet as players try...
