Das Manaleak ist wohl einer der besten Softcounter welcher meist genauso gut Countert wie ein Hardcounter aber wesentlich leichter zu Supporten ist als z.B. der Counterspell mit UU. Die ARENA Promo Foil enthält das Original Artwork aus Stronghold und ist somit die einzige Foilversion im Alten Frame.

Einer der besten Counter im Modern. Meist genauso gut wie ein echter Counterspell, auch im Lategame nicht zwingend tot.

VIDEO: 4C Uro Piles Deck Tech (Modern) + Deck Variants

Constructedvon NayRained (2020-11-18)

Since its release in Theros Beyond Death, Uro seems to be everywhere. And understandably so, as he is a jack of all trades with life gain, ramp, card draw as well as being a chunky creature. In this video, Snapbooster explains how to get the best out of the Titan with this control-like 4C Uro Piles Deck.

Omnath's Life Beyond Standard

Constructedvon Rone (2020-11-12)

While the marquee card of Zendikar Rising only lasted three weeks in Standard and on MTG Arena, Omnath, Locus of Creation can redeem itself by being a playable but not completely busted contender in other formats. Pioneer, Modern, and even Legacy — we review every Omnath strategy!

Top 5 Most Annoying Cards a Control Player Can Face

Constructedvon Skura (2020-11-03)

A control player's job is to stabilize the game through various means of interaction and then keep pressing the advantage as the game progresses. Some cards and group of cards make that task much tougher than it should be. Here's the Top 5 of pesky problems and egregious grievances.

Field of the Dead in Modern

Constructedvon Skura (2020-09-22)

Field of the Dead has been terrorizing a bunch of different formats in Magic over the past year, and it got itself banned from several. Recently, to the surprise of many, it has also had an increasingly meaningful impact on Modern. Let's explore the various Field shells that currently populate the format.

Rotation Grief: Ravnica Allegiance, Part 1

Constructedvon Kumagoro (2020-08-20)

The Standard rotation is coming! Time to acknowledge the sudden disappearance from our decks of all the cards from the four rotating sets. We continue this journey of grief (or perhaps jubilation) by looking at the monocolored cards Standard is going to lose when Ravnica Allegiance rotates out.

BUG Control in Modern

Constructedvon Skura (2020-08-13)

Following the ban of Arcum's Astrolabe from Modern, control players have to rediscover the archetype and readjust to the new environment. "Skurtai Control" is waiting in the wings to take over, quite likely the best successor to the previously dominating snow control value machines.

The Most Relevant Resource in Magic – Tempo

Constructedvon Skura (2020-07-16)

Magic is a game of resource management with three resources at its heart: cards, life, and often overlooked — tempo. While cards and life are very much quantifiable, tempo is a much vaguer term that is often misunderstood or outright neglected. However, it's the most relevant nowadays and deserves a closer look.

Slinging Spells in Standard and Modern Izzet Tempo

Constructedvon ElonThragtusk (2020-07-15)

Recent sets, such as Ikoria and Core Set 2021 impacted the metagames of multiple formats, but they also made way for some interesting non-meta strategies. One of the most prominent candidates is Izzet Spells, a tempo deck that can be easily tuned to become an aggro and/or even a budget deck.

How to Sideboard with Control Decks

Constructedvon Skura (2020-06-24)

In Magic, you play up to two thirds of all games postboard. If you want to win at Magic, it's imperative for you to be proficient at sideboarding.

The Good, the Bad, and the Underrated: A Lhurgoyf Tribute

Unterhaltungvon Dr-Exhume (2020-03-25)

"Ach! Hans, run! It's the Lhurgoyf!" The sound of these words is smoother than any other flavor text to my ears. With this article I want to pay tribute to a creature tribe that many people know best for its poster child, the Tarmogoyf. But let us not forget about its relatives.

Breaking the Mold: Having Fun in Modern

Constructedvon SamuelS (2020-02-27)

Modern is quite the established format, overrun with high-powered strategies that barely leave room for outsiders, it seems. Can wacky brews even stand a chance in such a well formed metagame? Here are two decks that most certainly can! Let's shape the world anew and storm the castle!

Why You Too Should Play European Highlander

Constructedvon Ratix (2020-01-06)

Before Commander caught on, players had already been enjoying a singleton format for years. It was named Highlander — originally for the catchphrase of the 1986 cult classic which stipulates that "There can be only one," but the format also seems to want to live forever.

Taking a Second Look at Modern Jund

Constructedvon HansD (2019-06-25)

Modern has changed in the five years I’ve been playing and following it, and some decks that used to be on top of the dogpile have found themselves kicked off their perch. As Modern has become more powerful, aggressive, and linear, many of the fair, interactive decks that reigned supreme have gone the way of the dinosaur. Jund is one of these decks that has been pushed out more and more by the changes in the metagame, but Modern Horizons has brought along a good number of new toys that warrant giving this battered archetype a second chance.

Jeskai Control in RNA Standard

Premodern: Why Is It Becoming Popular and Where Is It Headed

Constructedvon Elric (2018-09-25)

Premodern is an "old school" balanced format for nostalgic players but is not too expensive nor too limited when it comes to its card pool. Its future will depend on the players that it will attract, as well as the overall support it will get.

Dangerous Propositions: Umezawa's Jitte

Constructedvon Kumagoro (2018-09-17)

The Modern ban list is a maximum-security prison with 33 inmates, some of which pose a potentially serious threat to the meta. But now that Big Jace has been released, anything can happen. Let's review each of those offenders to see if they're eligible for parole. This time we talk about the most broken piece of equipment ever designed.

The Post-GP Prague Metagame Breakdown

Event-Coveragevon HansD (2018-09-05)

Although the European Modern scene leans toward control more than its American counterpart, the numbers that W/U Control put up at GP Prague came as an eye-opener for someone like me who expected things to be a lot more linear. Regardless, I want to take a look at the archetype's performance, examine an up-and-comer from the tournament, and wrap things up with a look towards the future. Without further ado, let's jump right into the deck of the hour, W/U Control.

Fighting the Good Fight - Snapcaster Mage

Constructedvon HansD (2018-08-28)

Welcome to another edition of "Fighting the Good Fight," and this past weekend's GP results couldn't have come at a better time for today's discussion of the best blue card in Modern: Snapcaster Mage. Snapcaster has been a mainstay in Modern since the format's very start, but with how well UW Control fared, we're expecting this wizard to be even more prevalent than usual. In that case, it's doubly important that we know how we can fight against one of Modern's most powerful cards!

Grand Prix Barcelona Tournament Report - Choosing a Modern Deck

Event-Coveragevon Andifeated (2018-07-05)

In formats as old, diverse, and full of different viable strategies as Modern, one does not need to choose a deck based on the current metagame. Most competitive decks you may face only achieve about 3% meta-share, leading to almost unpredictable pairings, giving players who try to get an advantage by making smart deck choices and choosing strategies that are well placed against popular decks a hard time. This time though, it was a different story.
