The U/R Pteramander Guide: Reaching New Thresholds

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2019-03-06)

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Salamander! It appears to have been hatching for quite a while because the little drake is everywhere in competitive Magic at the moment. CabalTherapy has been testing it in Legacy and he's here to share his results!

Should This Be Banned - Part 1

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-03-04)

We all know the hype and speculation about ban list announcements made by WotC for Modern and Legacy. But what about the commander ban list? Who takes care of it, and why are certain cards on there? Today, Robert wants to explore beyond our kitchen tables and into the broken, degenerate, format that Commander can be.

Dangerous Propositions: Dark Depths

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-02-19)

The Modern ban list is a maximum security prison with (KCI update!) 34 inmates, some of which could potentially pose a serious threat to the meta. In this ongoing series, we're reviewing each of those offenders to see if they're eligible for parole. This time it's the turn of the evil queen of the tokens.

Why BUG Delver Is the Best Delver Deck at the Moment

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2019-01-25)

LimitedBy SanchoN (2019-01-24)

It should be easy pickings to make a list of the 10 best Cube cards from Guilds of Ravnica, since the set has been out for a while, right? Or perhaps you feel like Sancho – that GRN has so much to offer, making it hard to narrow down which cards to include into your own Limited environment.

Ultimate Masters is going to be the last event release celebrating 25 years of Magic in 2018, and possibly the final set in the Masters series.

Something to Remember - The History of Tokens

EntertainmentBy SanchoN (2018-10-18)

From glass beads, coins, and matches to cardboard with the same size and even the same backside as Magic cards, tokens and other reminders that represent everything within the game, including creatures, have come a long way. This week, Sancho offers a token of gratitude to a special category of little helpers.

Melting Ice: Flipping Thing in the Ice in Legacy

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-10-11)

A 7/8 creature for two mana that does not see play in Legacy? That is totally unheard of! But that is currently the horror's fate. I think it is time to melt the ice.

Assassin's Trophy in Legacy: Is Sultai Viable Again?

SpoilersBy ChristopherB (2018-10-05)

Welcome to my first article for Cardmarket Insight. Loving Legacy, I want to take this opportunity and write about the impact of the new shooting star, Assassin's Trophy in Legacy. Hans talked about the possible changes in Modern, so I want to take this chance to write about one of my favorite colors in Legacy: Sultai or BUG.

Exploiting Delve: BUG Delve(-r) in Legacy

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-05-14)

In this outing, I look at a mechanic that has seen two of it rank banned or restricted in nearly every major format: Delve. I look at an aggressive application of Delve in Legacy's strongest three-color combination and how it presents a unique take on Tempo in a format dominated by blue tempo decks.

From Legends to Dominaria and Everything In Between - Part 2

EntertainmentBy Kumagoro (2018-05-04)

The 5 Most Successful Modern Combos That Are Still Legal

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-02-20)

As far as Eternal formats go, Modern is certainly not as combo-heavy as formats like Vintage or Legacy, but it’s still got its fair share of wicked endgame interactions. This article discusses the top five combos that continue to have a considerable impact on the Modern meta.

The 5 Lands Most Likely to Win You a Game

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-01-31)

When Magic players think of lands, they’re most likely thinking of mana sources, or the way to get to mana sources. After all, dropping a land is the first action that takes place in almost every game of Magic. But what about those peculiar lands that are game-enders rather than game-starters?

My Legacy Picks for Team Trios Constructed GPs

Event CoverageBy Alakazimdk (2018-01-23)

This article will try to give you and your team some options for the Legacy component of upcoming Team Constructed events. I’ll give each deck two scores, the first for experienced Legacy players and the second for players who are not as familiar with Legacy as a format. As with all Legacy lists, expect a high learning curve in a format with Wastelands, Brainstorms, and consistent turn 2-3 combo kills.
