Let's hope the Iconic Masters reprint brings it down to a reasonable price

jakuboboza(2016-04-05 01:38)

price spiked because of unban in modern. I don't think card deserve to be 25 euro but also it wasn't printed for very long time now.

Legacy Treasures 2: 4c Waterfalls

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2019-08-12)

CabalTherapy is back tapping into some of the less known, but still great decks in Legacy. This time it's the "real" cascade deck: 4c Waterfalls. It's great and it's time it gets its time in the sunshine. Joing him as he gives you a snapshot of this oldie but goodie.

Modern Horizons Preview (Part 2) - Modern Duds

SpoilersBy HansD (2019-06-13)

Last week, I discussed Modern’s most exciting new toys from Modern Horizons. This week, I'm bringing out the cards that make my shake in my head in disappointment. From cards that are a few words away from being interesting build-arounds to cards that left me dumbfounded as to why they were designed the way they were, I'm going to give you a run down of the biggest MH1 misses. Stretch your thumbs and prepare your booing because this might get ugly - here's to hoping you won’t open any of these cards in your prize boosters!

Dreadhorde Arcanist in Legacy: Hit or Miss?

SpoilersBy ChristopherB (2019-04-08)

War of the Spark recently spoiled a potential player in Legacy and Modern - Dreadhorde Arcanist. Christopher is here to explain what makes this card so good and what kind of decks might look to the Arcanist for its powerful value engine.

#TwitterBuildsModern Episode Two: The Drudge of Dredge!

EntertainmentBy JohnnyCroat (2019-03-29)

Graveyard decks come in many shapes and sizes. There's Living End, which is usually brought back out for a spin every time some new cool ETB effects get printed. UB Storm is in effect a graveyard deck, relying on Past in Flames in order to be able to recycle a big heap of cheap cantrips so as to generate massive card advantage and storm count. There's Dredge itself, happy to dump as many cards into the bin as possible, and then cheating several itty bitty bothersome monsters into play, which have a tendency to come back turn after turn after turn. So then, how does this relate to Maze's End? Read on!

Assassin's Trophy in Legacy: Is Sultai Viable Again?

SpoilersBy ChristopherB (2018-10-05)

Welcome to my first article for Cardmarket Insight. Loving Legacy, I want to take this opportunity and write about the impact of the new shooting star, Assassin's Trophy in Legacy. Hans talked about the possible changes in Modern, so I want to take this chance to write about one of my favorite colors in Legacy: Sultai or BUG.

Dangerous Propositions: Umezawa's Jitte

ConstructedBy 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.

Modern Metagame Review: 2018 Summer Edition

ConstructedBy Rone (2018-09-11)

Summer is over and the Guilds of Ravnica spoilers have officially begun. While waiting for new cards to improve or create new archetypes, let's review how the Modern format has been performing during the past three months divided into winners, losers, and new brews.

The Post-GP Prague Metagame Breakdown

Event CoverageBy 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.

Looking at GP Barcelona and the Post-Tournament Metagame

Event CoverageBy HansD (2018-07-09)

Isn't Modern great? Non-interactive decks like KCI and Tron run roughshod over the metagame, and in one weekend, we get five UW Control decks that top sixteen a Modern GP. It's a wild, wild world, and I want to take a quick look at how the direction of the format provided a window of opportunity for the control archetype, how the UW decks took advantage of the opportunity, and what this will mean for the metagame going forward. Let's jump right in!

Grand Prix Barcelona Tournament Report - Choosing a Modern Deck

Event CoverageBy 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.

Modern's One-Hit Wonders

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-04-18)

Every time a new deck pops up in Modern, there’s a rush to play the deck, it becomes a flavor of the month, and then is shelved indefinitely. This week Hans revisits four decks that saw some time in the limelight within the past year. Do any of these decks have any shot at redemption? Let’s find out!

An Introduction to 1v1 Commander

ConstructedBy JaminK (2018-04-18)

The 5 Most Successful Modern Combos That Are Still Legal

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-02-20)

As far as Eternal formats go, Modern is certainly not as combo-heavy as formats like Vintage or Legacy, but it’s still got its fair share of wicked endgame interactions. This article discusses the top five combos that continue to have a considerable impact on the Modern meta.
