Cards I Don’t Hate: Lambholt Pacifist

I had been thinking of an idea for an article series for a while, but was struggling to come up with one that would be consistent and rewarding to write. For many players, spoiler season can feel like an inspirational time. And for me this recent spoiler season was no exception. Every new card spoiled was coupled with excitement from players about how powerful it was, true or not, and it annoyed...

Adam Benn: Bombing the PT and finding out why.

I have been on the road for 3 of the past 4 weekends, so this article is going up a bit late.

This Sealed Format Sucks

This sealed format sucks. Most of us know it. The rest of you are in denial. If you don’t believe me, let’s take Canadian Icon Phil Samms’ word for it: On track to win with your more powerful creatures? Nope. Opponent slams on turn 4 and now you get to experience the joy of losing to a 7/9 . It’s not just that we instantly lose to on turn 4, but a bevy of unbeatable rares up for grabs in...
