Making the Jump to Legacy; Prepping for Niagara Falls

Hey, MTGCanada readers! I'm back with a beginner's look at the Legacy format as I prepare to step into the big leagues. If you're unaware, Legacy is a format that includes cards from every Magic set in history, which provides some very powerful and entertaining game play. Part of the reason I wanted to write this article is to highlight some of the easier decks to jump into the format with....

1 Deck, 2 Deck ~ Jund Deck, Brew Deck

1 Deck, 2 Deck ~ Jund Deck, Brew Deck and random thoughts on community... Hey there MTGCanada readers! I'm back once more with a Standard brew that seems to hold its own in the current environment. The project spawned from a few ideas of card groupings I liked together. As usual, I had a decent core idea, but had a hard time fleshing the list out. Luckily, I took it to my teammate Aaron Stross...

We’re Better Together…

Hey there everyone, Happy New Year! It's been a busy time of year and my writing has been less frequent. But the Magic has been great and life is good! There was a little bit of a lull at the end of 2018 for me. Whenever I'm not playing tournaments all weekend, something feels off. I may have to get used to this new found free time over the weekends with the PTQ system making its return. This...

Grinding With Abzan in Standard

Hi there everyone, This time I'm back with some thoughts and a deck list from a friend that's been doing relatively well in my local Standard. This deck really reminds me of Khans of Tarkir block, smashing  mirror matches, due to the grindy/value nature of the deck. I took this 75 from my friend, Nolan McDonald who had won a PPTQ with it on Saturday, November 10th, at Worlds Collide in Oshawa,...

Living End and A Lesson in Redirection

Hi there everyone! It's great to be back here writing for MTGCanada! I've taken a little over a month off from writing thanks to life, as happens sometimes. But I've had a lot of really cool experiences over the past two months, and the events I've gone to have sort of refreshed my M:tG energy. It's story time. TL;DR - there's another section later on focusing on my favourite shenanigans. In the...

First-Time SCG Experience: Syracuse, NY

Over the weekend of September 15 and 16th, I attended my first Open event in Syracuse, NY. It was nothing like what I expected and was an absolutely fantastic trip for my group of friends; so I wanted to do some reflecting. Looking back, one of the big lessons of the weekend was sticking to what you know and like in Modern. I've seen Burn do pretty well across the board, and...
