Bridge from Below is Banned from Modern

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2019-07-11)

Modern Horizons brought with it a nightmarish combo deck called Hogaak Bridgevine, leading to some serious anticipation for the next banned and restricted list announcement. Wizards of the Coast decided to take action and end the menace by banning Bridge from Below. Andifeated has some thoughts about this decision, the circumstances that lead to it, and what it means for Modern.

Taking a Second Look at Modern Jund

ConstructedBy 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.

Bridgevine's Missing Piece

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2019-06-13)

It was obvious that Modern Horizons would introduce some cards to the Modern metagame to help fringe strategies push their way into the meta. Nobody expected the monster that Wizards would unleash with Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis. Read about Bridgevine's rise from fringe status to potentially format defining.
