Test Drive – Standard Sultai Control

Hello all and welcome to another edition of the Test Drive! Today I’m going to be talking about a Standard deck that isn’t one of the big three decks in the current Standard meta-game. Since Kaladesh came out in September, there has been a card that is extremely popular and powerful from that set that I’ve never played up until now. It’s not that I didn’t believe it to be powerful, or...

Going for the Gold: Building a Better Magic Community

I’m taking a break this week from tournament practice and getting better at Magic to talk about something that the Magic Community needs to address. How can we make our community more inviting and compelling to newer and more casual players? I got the inspiration for this article when I sat down for Round 11 in GP Pittsburgh. My opponent was nowhere in sight (we were both 7-3) and the round had...

Test Drive – 4 Colour Saheeli Combo

Hello all and welcome to another edition of the Test Drive! Today I’m going to be talking about my first Test Drive with a Standard Deck from the post Aether Revolt Standard format. Over the past few weeks there has been a dominance in the format from three major deck archetypes. These have been Mardu Vehicles, Green/Black Delirium or Constrictor, and Saheeli Combo decks. Despite three major...

Budget Brew: The Dreaded Tron

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. While our main goal is ultimately to just have some fun, it's all gravy if we're able to win some matches as well. 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...

1 Drop Creatures for Commander: Black

Welcome back all you true Commander-heads out there, to the final instalment of the 5-part series on one mana creatures for EDH. This last of not least version features Black as the main colour but we will also take a peek at any colourless 1-CMC creatures as well. The other four can be viewed here. So what did we get this week? Does black hold up to green and White as far as power level or is it...

Going for the Gold: Winding Down in Pittsburgh

From my last article you know that I’ve been spending my last couple weekends away at magic tournaments, and last weekend would be no different. Considering that GP Pittsburgh was only a 4.5 hour drive away, it would be a criminal offense to miss it. The format was also Standard and based on some of the testing that I had done for Pro Tour Dublin, I figured I wouldn’t have to put much time...

Modern Death’s Shadow Aggro: A Guide

Nick Desmarais, Cameron Ruether, and I are going to Baltimore this weekend. We plan to play in the StarCityGames Team Constructed Open where each team consists of three players and each player plays a different format. I am on Modern, Cameron is on Standard, and Nick is on Legacy. In preparation for the event, I read Todd Stevens' article "How Has Modern Changed?"  and found its current...
