Adventures in Standard: Discard Makes a Comeback

Before anyone says anything, I am aware of the fact that discard as a mechanic never really faded away completely. Much like some of the more basic mechanics that have through the history of Magic, discard has always kind of been a thing. It's primarily used to gain card advantage by preventing your opponent from holding on to key cards. However, one of the main problems that discard keeps...

Going for the Gold: The Best Archetype in Core 19

Welcome back to Going for the Gold! Last week I kind of left you on a cliffhanger. We went through all of the good commons and uncommons in the set. I showed you why I thought that blue and black were the deepest colours since they had the best commons and uncommons. So, does that mean that UB is the best archetype? Definitely not! UB is very deep, so it can support multiple drafters. Howeverl...

Modern Control: Blue Tron

Modern is a format of blistering speed and efficiency, with many different angles of attack. This makes it particularly hostile to answer-heavy control decks, where drawing the wrong interaction for a given matchup is often an immediate loss. The recent surge in blue/white “Planeswalker” control notwithstanding, Modern control decks have generally had to adopt prison elements (, ), combo...

Going for the Gold: Drafting Core 19

Welcome back to Going for the Gold! World Cup Soccer fever is finally over. Now that France has taken the World Cup, I'm back to spending my time focused on Magic and Poker. It's sad to see Dominaria limited become irrelevant. It was one of the best draft formats in a long time. Going from an expansion set that introduced us to new mechanics and cycles of cards back to the basics is...

The Modern Rogue Report – Seismic Swans

Hey there! It's been a while! I've been a little busy with life lately. Moving, Canadian Nationals, plus a few other things. However, my favourite time of year is approaching. It's Modern PPTQ season and I'm extremely excited for what's to come. This is the 23rd instalment of the Rogue Report and there's no current plan of turning back! We've been janking it up in here for quite a while, so...

The Art of Magic: Bluffing

There has been a lot of discussion over what makes someone a good player in Magic. Some say that the deck makes the player, some say it's how the deck is played. Others go as far as to say that dedication to the brand and flavour is the way to go. It's all subjective because the fun of the game comes from so many things. I can't tell you how to enjoy the game. What I can do is give you some tips...

Daily Dose of Core 2019 – Video – Deckbuilding with a Core 2019 Prerelease Kit

Welcome to a special video edition of the Daily Dose of Core 2019. Today I’m going to be opening a prerelease kit and letting you my thoughts and processes on how I would a build a 40-card deck from those six packs of Core 2019. First, I’ll start off by laying out the contents of each pack, then I’ll show you my technique and process I use for every sealed event I play in when it comes to...

Mission ImpossiBREW: Arena (Singleton)

Hey there Planeswalkers, I'm back this week with a little bit of a fun venture into MTG Arena. I've been letting Modern take a backseat for a couple weeks as I had Canadian Nationals to prep for. Long story short, I didn't do well, but I had a lot of fun. One of the major positives I took from the Nationals was my interaction with opponents. I felt great about the level of sportsmanship on both...
