With my Junk deck, I'd be happy to T3 this sweeper against affinity or naya zoo. I'm definitely going to run this in SB.

I only agree with Asmodean in the fact that it's just purely sideboard card, In modern creature based decks, especially aggro (like goblins) are very fast and the best mass removal in black - damnation costs 4, which in most cases is too late. The no-untap of lands drawback is substantial here, but t3 is when the majority have already emptied their hands.

I can't see this card anywhere else than in sideboard and probably not even in control....

A Sweep Is as Lucky as Lucky Can Be - The Wrath of God Story

EntertainmentBy Kumagoro (2019-01-16)

The battlefield in a game of Magic often gets cluttered. And when that happens, what it needs is a good sweep. Fortunately, there have been cards providing help with this operation since the beginning of time, from those who called forth divine anger to those who made a star explode in the vicinity.

On Lower Tiers: Standard MBC

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-08-08)

Despite the clear dominance of a few lists, Standard is a surprisingly diverse format right now and features a handful unsung heroes. One of these is Monoblack Torment, the most straightforward ramp archetype in the meta. Let's see where it's at now, and where it will go after the October rotation.

Inner Workings: Ad Nauseam

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-07-18)

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 Ad Nauseam, the only combo deck in Modern to abuse a card also commonly seen in Legacy to create a flashier play.

Top 5 Aggro Decks in Dominaria Standard

ConstructedBy Rone (2018-06-20)

Standard is in a pretty rough spot right now. After Pro Tour Dominaria, the format looks solved. Goblin Chainwhirler is the new boogeyman and Red decks are everywhere. So, Rodrigo decided to take a look at Aggro in Standard and ranked his top 5 Aggro decks in Dominaria.

The State of Standard

ConstructedBy ChristianS (2018-06-01)

Dominaria dropped and immediately warped the Standard landscape around it. For the first time in a while, a set managed to shift the chokehold Kaladesh had on the meta. But how has it changed Standard and what decks should people be looking out for in this new landscape. Christian has the answers below!

The Year of Living Dangerously: Mastering Mastery

ConstructedBy JohnnyCroat (2018-05-24)

Imagine not being able to lose the game. Imagine that every time you gain life, you draw extra cards. (Card advantage is great, right?) …but what’s this? I need to exile some cards in my graveyard? Okay, I can do that. Now my hand? Well, I guess since I drew extra cards, I don’t mind. My permanents too? Uh-oh…

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.

Zero Thrill: The Pact of Negation Story

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-03-14)

Were Force of Will available in Modern, the format would be dramatically altered. And yet, Modern does already contain a piece of non-conditional zero-cost countermagic, and while it's not played as much as Vintage and Legacy's signature counterspell, it's been tentatively around since Modern's early days.

UB Gateway Control in Standard

ConstructedBy ChristianS (2018-03-09)

When I started playing Standard after the release of Rivals of Ixalan, the first thing I wanted to do was to try out Azor's Gateway. In this article, I share the results of my testing and the deck that I believe is one of the best at utilizing Azor's Gateway.
