White-Blue Control's Pioneer Premiere

ConstructedBy SamuelS (2019-12-11)

White-Blue Control is a particularly evergreen deck, part and parcel of all of Magic's formats. From counter spells and great removal to card advantage and life gain, the Azorius guild grants us access to all the tools we need to survive, and dominate, the long game.

Pioneer at Cardmarket Series Prague

ConstructedBy 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.

Join Rone as he digs into this new archetype and and its potential for Mythic Championship IV in Barcelona.

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-06-21)

In each installment of the Inner Workings series, we'll examine a different Modern archetype to find out what makes it tick. This time, it's the turn of Bogles, the most explosive aggro/combo deck this side of Infect, and the only major deck exploiting the Cinderella of card subtypes: Auras.

Budget Decks to Get into Modern

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-05-16)

Modern can be pricey, and it’s not easy to figure out the right way to find an entry point into the format.

Modern Myths: Debunking the Format's Biggest Misconceptions

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-05-09)

Modern has a lot of things said about it, and I want to tackle in this week's article a few that I find to be myths about the format. I'm calling these four "Modern Myths," and I hope that bringing up these topics will spark a discussion. Do you think you'll agree with these points? Let's dive in and start off with the first one.

Choose Their Poison: The Collective Brutality Story

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-04-11)

Modal spells - everyone's favorite way to pack a bigger bang for your buck while dealing with the inherent available slot restrictions in 60-card decks. The best of such cards were frequently chase rares in the past and Collective Brutality is no exception; let’s choose to see why.

5 Dragons You Might Meet on the Battlefield

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-03-23)

Dracarys! Despite their typical casting cost being midrange and beyond, Dragons always find a way to show up in decks of all kinds. Their current situation across the formats is not too shabby, and not just in red-based builds. Here’s a selection of the flying terrors all the cool kids are playing.

BW Soul Sisters: No Grey Areas

ConstructedBy JohnnyCroat (2018-02-08)

Modern is a wonderfully vibrant format currently, with each new set seeing new decks and archetype variants getting more than a few plays online. Pro Tour Rivals of Ixalan saw 5 Colour Humans as its most popular deck, with two such builds making it as far as the Top 8. But, once upon a time, there was a popular mono-White Humans deck: Soul Sisters. Does this deck still have legs? Or has its time passed?

A Case Study on the Fall of Bant Eldrazi

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-02-02)

Modern evolves as new cards enter the format, broken enablers are banned, and archetypes are discovered through off-the-wall experimentation. What used to be a tier-one archetype can in a few months be outclassed, outdated, and outmatched by the new hotness. Bant Eldrazi is one such archetype that now finds itself looking in from the outside of a format it once used to rule. How did this powerful deck manage to quickly fall from the top of the pile?

Do you enjoy shaping your hand until you will inevitably win, or do you prefer to present impressive threats as fast as possible?
