The Future of Dark Confidant and Modern Jund

EntertainmentBy 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.

Soldevi Surveyor: Planar Chaos

EntertainmentBy SanchoN (2019-07-08)

Eccentric looking cards. Effects not in the colors you would expect to find them in. And rumors of a sixth color of Magic. In this first installment of our new series Soldevi Surveyor, Sancho digs into a time of confusion and disorder as he unearths the incredible expansion known as Planar Chaos.

The decks include: Vraska and her deathtouch squad, all the Ajani’s we can fit, hand disruption with Davriel and spell slinging with Ral Zarek.

Identifying Commander Decks: It's Easy as ABC

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-05-20)

Let's look at the wild wild west that is Commander with its infinite ways to build Commander decks, but only certain ways to fit specific playgroups and play styles. What decks are considered "casual" and what makes a deck competitive?

Getting Ahead Part 3 - Your Opponent Has a Plan

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2019-04-08)

There are many traps to fall into as a tournament player on your path to become one of the very best, like no one ever was. One of them is being arrogant. Andreas has lessons on not underestimating your opponent and why it's such an important skill for competitive Magic players.

The 90's Black Magic Scare

EntertainmentBy SanchoN (2019-02-26)

Will playing mono-black really lead you into eternal damnation? Pull up your hoodie, blast your ears with your favorite old school death metal album, and join Sancho on a stagger down memory lane to a time when angry grandmas were scary enough to guide the creative choices of Wizards of the Coast.

#TwitterBuildsModern

EntertainmentBy JohnnyCroat (2019-01-31)

Started in 2014, the gaming world saw the birth of a most interesting digital experiment - Twitch Plays Pokémon. Indeed it was so popular that it rapidly secured a place in the Guinness Book of Records for the most players on a single-player online videogame. Could something similar be possible if we were to ask the Magic Community to build a fully functional Modern 75? There's only one way to find out!

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.

Reyhan and Ikra Budget Golgari Deck Tech

ConstructedBy RyanS (2018-10-16)

Building a Commander deck is a fun, but daunting task, especially if you are on a tight budget. In this article, I will try to explain the thought process of building on a budget using cards which cost less than three euros each.

Lord of Specters: Nicol Bolas Commander Deck Tech

ConstructedBy RyanS (2018-09-04)

M19 gave players the origin of Nicol Bolas his very own flip walker, to symbolize his getting a planeswalker spark. This means that commander players now have the opportunity to build Nicol Bolas decks with a decent Bolas commander. In this article, I will showcase a particular build for [Nicol Bolas, the Ravager] that focuses on hand disruption and reanimation.

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.

Tribal Attractions: Demons

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-07-06)

With its strict, four-faction setting, Ixalan has been a very tribal block, and then Dominaria doubled down with some tribal focus of its own. Time for Kumagoro to have fun with Modern-legal concoctions for some less obvious tribes. In this installment: the big bad finishers from Hell.

Dominaria Set Review for Modern

SpoilersBy Rone (2018-04-24)

Dominaria's release is on the horizon and that means once thing for Modern players: time to brew decks and figure out which cards help which archetypes. This time, we have lots of reprints, awesome callbacks, Historic Spells and the new Enchantment mechanics: Sagas.

Artifact Synergies in Dominaria

SpoilersBy ChristianS (2018-04-17)

Christian is back at it with Dominaria, this time looking at potential artifact synergies for the upcoming expansion. From Djinns to Planeswalkers, and even to the new Saga Mechanic, Dominaria looks to be an artifacts matter set, pairing well with Kaldesh and bringing new and old archetypes to life.

There and Back Again: The Bloodbraid Elf Story

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-03-01)

If not exactly the Queen of Jund (that’s of course Liliana), Bloodbraid Elf was certainly its High Priestess back in the times. Now that she’s been unleashed on the Modern format once again, is she going to find a home in a drastically changed meta, or will she go the way of Bitterblossom?

Jace Jam: Slam Dunk Deck Lists for Jace the Mind Sculptor

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-02-28)

Well, it happened: Jace, the Mind Sculptor got unbanned and the world lost its collective cool. Now that we have a solid grouping of 5-0 MTGO decklists behind us, let's look at where the now-legal planeswalker shows promise. See for yourself what Jace has brought to the Modern metagame!
