I wish this one will be reprinted in Return to Zendikar. I already sold my playset online and want to grab new one for cheap ;p

SpoilersBy ElonThragtusk (2020-06-15)

It looks like M21 is a core set of the kind most of us have wanted for a long time. Flavorful, full of unexpected reprints, and filled with interesting cards — we're definitely in for a treat. One of the crazier cards has to be Chandra's Incinerator, but evaluating its potential is no small task …

Yorion, Sky Nomad Rises in Modern

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-05-25)

"Come slide down rainbows in the sky, let's fly away. Like a bird, you're free to see the boundless face of the earth. Let the wind blow you like a kite and glide away."

SpoilersBy ElonThragtusk (2020-01-09)

Why You Too Should Play European Highlander

ConstructedBy 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.

Modern is a new format after the recent banning and unbanning. People are looking to brew tons of new decks, but Rone decided instead to look back at Mythic Championship IV Barcelona. Sure, the decks were tuned for Hogaak, but maybe there were some gems that you could adapt in the new Modern.

From the Vault: Kaalia

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-07-16)

#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!

The Faithless: Modern Looting Archetypes

ConstructedBy Rone (2019-03-05)

Dangerous Propositions: Punishing Fire

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-11-14)

Melting Ice: Flipping Thing in the Ice in Legacy

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-10-11)

Tribal Attractions: Dragons

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-08-31)

You Shall Not Heal: The Skullcrack Story

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-07-27)

The Ideal Deck: Enduring Ideal in Modern

ConstructedBy JohnnyCroat (2018-03-02)

The B&R announcements are some of the most intense moments of the year for serious Magic players. The early ‘spoiler’ that Ensnaring Bridge was going to face the ban hammer was fake, naturally. Still, Lantern players may look elsewhere for a lock deck, now that Jace and Bloodbraid are free. We’re going to look at one potent Standard lock deck and see if it can be successfully ported into Modern. After all, what's the point of controlling their top decks if they are just going to brainstorm.
