Dollar Pack Draft

Drafting old cards is probably my favourite thing in magic. Unfortunately out-of-print booster packs get more expensive every year, and since nobody in my playgroup wants to pay $60+ for a draft (including me) the best case for drafting old cards is usually a mixed-booster draft with a couple packs from older sets. There are of course budget alternatives: cube is an easy solution, and having...

New Magic Set? Did Somebody Say New Commander Stuff?

New Magic Set? Did Somebody Say New Commander Stuff? Now that Battle for Zendikar is officially out, and singles are lining binders and boxes are in stores, I thought it would be the perfect time to do a small breakdown of the set from an EDH perspective. So here I shall list my top ten cards from this set. Notably I'm going to exclude lands, Planeswalkers and Legendary Creatures that are only...

Robert’s Top 15 Underrated EDH Cards

Practically everyone I know who plays Magic enjoys EDH/Commander to some degree. Either you’re a hardcore combo player like everyone in my playgroup, or you’re someone who built a silly tribal Treefolk deck. Regardless of which kind of player you are, I believe that in every colour there’s a handful of great cards that should be staples and that also don’t break the bank. Today I’m...

The New Standard (of Removal)

This is not the standard I know. The Standard I had known previously had great removal spells, and an unconditional removal spell I took for granted. (RIP ) This Standard is the first time I look at most removal spells and get quite sad. No , no two mana black removal spell that hits almost everything. is a great removal spell that somehow wizards has managed to turn into a liability. We have...

Going Rogue: Reliquary Retreat

Welcome back to another edition of Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal but it often happens anyway. This week I'm going to introduce you to a brand new combo in Modern (legal as of tomorrow!) and show you a deck that uses it to offer you three different options for instant-kills. It's all in the untap. First, the new, fantastic, mouth-watering, Zoo-beefing, two-card combo: + . It works by...

Modern Allies and Battle for Zendikar

Battle for Zendikar brings a second generation of allies into the modern card pool. While allies has always been a cheap and decent modern deck, and recently put up some good results with , it has always compared unfavourably with similar decks like Merfolk, Zoo, and even Slivers. The next block promises to double the available cards in the tribe, so now is the time to get familiar with the pros...

You did this to yourself…but I gave you the fuel for the fire.

With the Commander products a scant few months away and Battle for Zendikar offering up some dangerous new goodies, it might be time to look at a counter-strategy for all those attacking nuisances. This deck was largely inspired by (EDH format mentor and Rules Committee member) Sheldon Menery’s “You Did This to Yourself!” deck, but whereas he uses and can actually kill someone with...
