ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-07-28)

What's the first color that comes to your mind when someone uses the term "aggro deck"? Surely it would be either red or green; doubt it would be black. If so, Demonic Embrace is here to blow your mind, as it has had some amazing results in the last month. Time to embrace your inner demon!

Slinging Spells in Standard and Modern Izzet Tempo

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-07-15)

Recent sets, such as Ikoria and Core Set 2021 impacted the metagames of multiple formats, but they also made way for some interesting non-meta strategies. One of the most prominent candidates is Izzet Spells, a tempo deck that can be easily tuned to become an aggro and/or even a budget deck.

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-04-28)

"Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling Dinosaur Hippo to the leaping Bird Serpent." Well, maybe that's not exactly what Mufasa said. Either way, Lurrus of the Dream-Den apparently "can't wait to be king."

ConstructedBy WileCoyote (2019-04-29)

Traditional Pauper is a great format but recently MTG Arena started running Pauper events too. However, Arena Pauper is based on Standard legal common cards only so it'ss entirely different.

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-11-26)

PT Guilds of Ravnica may have had a Top 8 filled to the brim with White Aggro, but Hans believes Golgari Midrange still has what it takes to beat any of the format's big hitters. Take a look inside to know all about the inside-outs of B/G Midrange in Standard!

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Pauper Staple Comparisons

ConstructedBy WileCoyote (2018-11-14)

What makes a good card? What makes a bad card? This all depends on the situation. Today, I'm looking at cards that are similar in mana cost and/or effect and comparing them to find the best and the worst.
