It's mostly a mill card. The static ability is only relevant in fringe formats. And for graveyard hate there are usually better options.
Also it's just an uncommon and gets a reprint in the Challenger Decks.

This card will probably take as long as Dryad Arbor or Manamorphose did until everyone realizes what an insane card this is.

By Rone (2021-06-24)

With the release of Modern Horizons 2 domain strategies are back on the menu! It only took a few tools to revitalize the archetype, and other multicolored decks have greatly improved as well. Let's take a look back at the history and the future of lists featuring all of our favorite colors!

Dauthi Voidwalking Through Modern

By Skura (2021-06-17)

Modern Horizons 2 features a ton of exciting cards, from fringe playables to role players to outright archetype-redefining staples. One in particular still flies a little under the radar but already found a place in decks as different as Esper Stoneblade and Blue-Black Rogues. Let's check in with Dauthi Voidwalker!

Modern Horizons 2 Spotlight: Grief

By ElonThragtusk (2021-05-29)

A better version of a (somewhat) popular Legacy card is coming to Modern—what could possibly go wrong? Between its own power and its synergy with certain other cards, the true question is which will prevail. Will it be responsible for new discard-heavy decks, fit into an existing archetype, or both?

Data Analysis: The Top Modern Decks, April–May 2021

By Aliquanto (2021-05-21)

One month after release, it's time to review all of the many Strixhaven cards that made a splash in Modern and analyze the Magic Online results to determine which are the format's best performing decks in this post-STX, pre-MH2 world. We've got data, calculations, programming, and a new frontrunner!

Valki and Omnath Meet at Valakut … (Five-Color Scapeshift)

By Rone (2021-03-22)

In a new Modern era without Uro, four-color piles are no longer playable, right? Well, that is unless Omnath joins forces with Tibalt to bring the all-time greatest Valakut shell to light. If you enjoy a colorful mana base that supports sheer everything and even kills opponents, then here's the Modern deck for you!

Control Decks in Post-Ban Modern

By Skura (2021-02-25)

It was barely a month ago that control variants utterly dominated the Modern metagame. But the recent banned and restricted announcement shook the archetype's very foundations. Will it be able to hold on to its tier one position despite the changes? Can it adapt? Let's look at decklists!

Three Modern Decks to Play After the Bans

By ElonThragtusk (2021-02-23)

Last week, five more cards have been banned from Modern in one of the biggest announcements in recent memory. This caused quite a stir, killing some strategies and making others (even) better. Which decks can we expect to see rise to the top now? We can quickly come up with at least three!

Top 5 Cards That Should See More Play in Modern

By Skura (2021-02-01)

Modern is a vast format with dozens upon dozens of viable archetypes. To me, it's the most diverse, fun, stimulating, and overall best format in Magic. However, people sometimes tunnel vision on a narrow subset of cards that they keep playing over and over again and forget the cards that need exploring.

Kaldheim Spotlight: Valki // Tibalt

By Rone (2021-01-18)

With Kaldheim, the snowiest plane of all, Tibalt returns to Magic history—and to make history himself. Disguised as Valki, the God of mischief, trickery, and lies, he makes for the first ever modal double-faced card showcasing a creature/planeswalker, ready to boost every Rakdos archetype across all formats.

Getting into the Zone and Zoning Out

By Kumagoro (2020-12-03)

Magic's virtual board is divided into a number of distinct zones. During the game, objects are created in one of these zones, and then moved between them as the players take actions — a seemingly simple yet intricate mechanism that has in time been defined by a proper nomenclature worth exploring.

VIDEO: The History of Modern W/U Control

By HarryKhoo (2020-11-24)

W/U Control has been around for years, but have you ever thought about its evolution over time? What lands were thrown in before Field of the Dead appeared in Core Set 2020? Was a burning W/U Control deck ever a thing? When did the first good cantrip appear? In this Price of Knowledge video, we look at the long history of W/U Control.

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

By 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.

The Many Flavors of Modern Control

By Skura (2020-11-17)

Modern has always been known for being the most open and diverse competitive Magic format, and this time it's not any different. In this article, we want to look at a bunch of different Cryptic Command control decks, including some lesser-known variants, that are part of the metagame right now.

Omnath's Life Beyond Standard

By 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!

VIDEO: Are the Spell Lands About to Break Modern

By HarryKhoo (2020-10-16)

Spell lands are a new card type from Zendikar Rising but how powerful are they? In this PriceOfKnowledge video, Harry MTG explains how these new lands work and how they could influence the Modern meta. He is looking at some midrange decks, Amulet Titan and cards like Neoform.

Field of the Dead in Modern

By 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.

Zendikar Rising Spotlight: Ruin Crab in Nonrotating Formats

By ElonThragtusk (2020-09-07)

In the last few years, mill decks have gained new removal and counterspells, but no useful mill cards. This lack of support is the main thing that keeps them from moving up in the meta. How likely is it that a new and, in the case of this deck, better Hedron Crab helps with this issue in Modern and other formats?

Rotation Grief: War of the Spark, Part 2

By Kumagoro (2020-09-02)

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 multicolored and colorless cards Standard is going to lose when War of the Spark rotates out.

Rotation Grief: Ravnica Allegiance, Part 2

By Kumagoro (2020-08-24)

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 into the multicolored and colorless cards Standard is going to lose when Ravnica Allegiance rotates out.

BUG Control in Modern

By 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.

Why You Should Play Eldrazi Tron in Modern in 2020

By ElonThragtusk (2020-06-25)

For at least one year now, Eldrazi Tron has stuck around the top of the meta as one of the most successful decks in Modern. It's not even getting much support with new sets, yet it seldom, if ever, falls from tier one status. Basically, any time is a good time to smash with Eldrazi, and this is no exception.

How to Sideboard with Control Decks

By 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. This article focuses on one archetype which the author is known to have mastered. Let's take a deep look at your control deck's fifteen, how to pick and how to use them.

M21 Spotlight: Conspicuous Snoop

By ElonThragtusk (2020-06-18)

Thanks to Modern Horizons and Core Set 2020, Vial Goblins has become an option in Modern, albeit with no major success so far. That may soon change, however, as Core Set 2021 provides us with a Goblin that was cause for much hype already and caused an older card to spike. How about a combo kill on turn three?

Hooray for Ironwood!

By JohnnyCroat (2020-06-02)

Despite speculation about a movie going on for years, Magic hasn't made it to the big screen yet. But rumors abound, mostly because they are so much fun, aren't they? Let's entertain some possible casting choices for our favorite in-game characters, and sing hooray for Holly— err, Ironwood!

Yorion, Sky Nomad Rises in Modern

By 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." This is what it feels like to try Yorion in Modern, where the sky is the limit and all your wishes come true by playing an 80-card deck.

Yorion, a Nomad Mad for Standard

By BrentT (2020-04-30)

When companions were initially released, Yorion, Sky Nomad sort of flew under the radar because obviously busted Lurrus and Gyruda claimed the spotlight first. But the Standard metagame moves fast and now we're seeing Yorion variants rise to the top. Let's take a look at a couple of decks running an extra twenty cards.

Updating Modern Jund

By Andifeated (2020-04-03)

Theros Beyond Death impacted a lot of nonrotating formats with broken combo cards like Thassa's Oracle and Underworld Breach. But not only did the unfair strategies get new power-creep toys — the Titan duo of Uro and Kroxa changed the faces of many midrange decks as well. Let's see what Jund gets out of that!

The Future of Modern After Once Upon a Time

By ElonThragtusk (2020-03-12)

After several months of a Modern metagame dominated by Once Upon a Time, everyone who didn't manage to squeeze it into their deck can rejoice. Its power level has proved the card worthy of a ban, and it's now leaving the format. Read on to find out in which direction the new Modern may be headed.

Breaking the Mold: Having Fun in Modern

By 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!

Players Tour Preparation: My Pioneer Deck for Brussels

By ChristianS (2020-01-31)

2-Mana and 3-Mana Planeswalkers: How Broken Are They?

By Kumagoro (2020-01-20)

Oko is certainly a problematic card, but is the same true of any cheap planeswalker? There are more of them than one might think. We'll examine all 43, properly evaluating their "brokenness" in order to address the design sustainability of a planeswalker that can naturally drop on turn two or three.

Why You Should Play Titan Shift in Modern in 2020

By ElonThragtusk (2020-01-07)

Titan Shift, although not the most popular Modern deck right now, still saw a decent amount of play throughout 2019, especially in the final few months. Read on to see why it shouldn't be any less of a factor in the year to come, and what new tools and circumstances have improved its position in the metagame.

Countdown to Christmas 2019: Planeswalkers

By TobiH (2019-12-17)

If you took part in our Christmas contest, as so many of you did, you probably can't wait for us to part the veil and unravel the mystery. It's time to lift the secret and to reveal the four planeswalker cards that were traded the most on Cardmarket.com in 2019.

Pioneer at Cardmarket Series Prague

By TobiH (2019-12-06)

Pioneer wasn't one of the big headliners in Prague, and the event's turnout wasn't big either. The format also experienced another round of bannings since. Nevertheless, the results call into question some previous assumptions. In particular, control fared much better than expected.

A Look at the Top 16 Modern Decks from Cardmarket Series Prague

By Andifeated (2019-12-03)

Modern is a hotbed of variety and the Cardmarket Series Prague metagame was no different. The Top 16 alone featured 14 different decks and proved again that Modern is the most diverse of all Constructed format. Let's take a closer look at the state of Modern after Throne of Eldraine and Stoneforge Mystic have settled in.

Jeskai Fires in Post-Oko Standard

By Rone (2019-11-20)

Standard was all about Food decks before the ban of Oko, but one underdog deck was already waiting for its moment to take over. Finally, the time has come for Jeskai Fires of Invention to shine. Join Rone and the Cavaliers and have all your dreams and wishes come true!

Vintage at Cardmarket Series Barcelona, an Analysis

By Elric (2019-11-06)

A modern version of BUG Fish claimed the trophy in a metagame filled with artifact and combo decks, but also speckled with a few surprises. Let's see how the latest releases and changes affected the Vintage metagame, and take a look at the Top 4 decklists!

Mythic Championship V: Twilight of the Dead

By Kumagoro (2019-10-23)

The penultimate Arena Mythic Championship was foremost a Golos affair, yet the wandering robot and its favorite Zombieland destination failed to reach the topmost place in their final Standard showcase. This ended up the privilege of the reigning, and fervent, world champion.

It's a Storm's World

By CabalTherapy (2019-10-10)

Storm clouds have descended upon the Legacy format once again. The archetype won several bigger tournaments in the span of just a couple of weeks. Which metagame factors contributed to the recent rise of Storm Combo, how do we combat the menace, and what comes next?

A Faithless Looting Eulogy, Part 2: In Memoriam

By Rone (2019-10-08)

The mourning continues in this series about the monumental banning of Faithless Looting from Modern. This time, Rone dives into the rest of the affected strategies in order to find the best future build for Mono-Red Prowess, Hollow One, and Mardu Pyromancer, to name but a few!

Rotation Grief: Dominaria (Part 1)

By Kumagoro (2019-09-25)

The Standard Rotation looms closer with each passing day. The coming meta will be shaped, mostly, as a direct consequence of rotation. We're near the end of this journey of grief (or jubilation, depending on who you ask) as we look into the white, blue, and black cards we'll have to remove from our Standard decks when Dominaria rotates out.

Spicy Decks from Mythic Championship IV

By Rone (2019-08-30)

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.

The Future of Dark Confidant and Modern Jund

By HansD (2019-07-25)

Midrange decks are built with the metagame in mind and are thus highly customizable. Regardless, even the most customizable of these decks still play core cards that are integral to the deck’s gameplan. Very rarely, in a non-rotating format such as Modern, does a new card come along that displaces the current best-in-slot card for a midrange deck. With the printing of Wrenn and Six in Modern Horizons, I believe that Dark Confidant has found himself as the odd man out after years of being a Jund mainstay.

Standard Combos: Bant Scapeshift

By Andifeated (2019-07-23)

Scapeshift has been standard legal since Core Set 2019, yet it never saw much play in competitive Standard, despite being a tournament staple in formats like Modern. In this weeks article, Andifeated will elaborate on the missing piece that is bringing Scapeshift back into the Standard limelight.

War of the Spark Modern Review - My Top Picks

By Rone (2019-05-13)

Nicol Bolas has returned to end all our beloved Gatewatch heroes! It doesn't matter who wins this war though, since we Modern players still get a lot of new planeswalkers to try out. In this article, let me try to evaluate every War of the Spark card that might be Modern material.
