Adventures in Standard: Wizards with Prowess Matter

Do you remember Dominaria spoiler season? I do. It was a pretty awesome set, from top to bottom. We got a brand new card type in Sagas, a brand new card designation in Historic, plenty of flavorful cards, and way more value than a lot of people are used to. It was a great way to bring in the new approach to main line sets. Dominaria even brought us a new Karn and a new Teferi. It brought us a new...

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...

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...

Budget EDH Toolchest – Nekusar’s Pain Train

One of the greatest things about Magic is that there are plenty of ways to play casually, have fun, and still do really well. Especially in formats like EDH/Commander. One of my favourite Commander decks that I've built over the couple of years I've been playing is centred around Grixis and . I've tried my hardest to keep from making it too efficient because I didn't want to become the biggest...

Card of the Day – Champion of Lambholt

Even though I've been playing Magic the Gathering for some time, my most recent and deepest foray into the game introduced me to Commander/EDH and the format had plenty to offer me. So much so that I went and immediately snapped up the first pre-constructed deck that appealed to me, Commander 2016's "Breed Lethality". Or, as it's better known, the Atraxa deck. While there are tons of great cards...

Card of the Day – Baral, Chief of Compliance

Aether Revolt was my first full on prerelease. While I had been playing the game for a long time, I had never been deep enough to start going to events like this. Mostly because I didn't know they existed until around the time Kaladesh was being spoiled. To this day, it serves as one of my most successful and favourite prereleases. I won a door prize, I went 3-4, and I succeeded in getting one...

Adventures in Standard: Legendary Wizards Matter Possible in Dominaria?

So, lately, Wizards has had this habit of hearing some people's vocal opinions on reprinting iconic spells into Standard but instead of fulfilling that wish, in the sense of balance, scaling the card they're intending to bring back into Standard down. A great example of this is , which was brought back for the Ixalan block. There's no doubt in my mind that it was trying to fill the spot people...

Card of the Day – Merfolk Branchwalker

When you think of the Empire State Building, what first comes to mind? Is it the wonderful displays on the ground level? The gargoyles peering out on New York City? Do you think of its magnificent point, leering tall above the rest of the New York skyline? Do you think of the man hours that went into building it? It would be perfectly natural for any of those things to jump to mind when you...
