The delve ability makes this card completely absurd. For the health of modern, hope this remains banned for long.

Catchimba(09.05.2015 18:29)

Unfortunately the mid-term financial upside of this card is very limited with the Modern banning. Maybe when Khans rotates could be interesting, but still, with such huge print run I would not bet my money.

Osbagen(09.05.2015 16:46)

I don't think that this beauty will stay banned in modern for long. Just get your 4x before the unban ;)

Piromancer(09.05.2015 15:07)

Great card to dig through your deck, most of the times it's the same mana for a double impulse

ThronesOfGod(07.05.2015 22:57)

Deeper and deeper for what I need :) I'll always find a card to counter your spell :)

By TobiH (2022-07-06)

Four Shades of Blue: Asserting Control

By Skura (2022-04-17)

Control is widely associated with the color blue—and for good reasons. Whether it's countermagic or card draw, blue gets the most and the best such spells.

Dress (Down) for Success

By Rone (2021-08-24)

Pioneer's Prismari Torrent

By Kumagoro (2021-05-25)

Pioneer loves aggro. Aside from a few build-around pieces that lend themselves to more control-oriented lists, like Fires of Invention or Niv-Mizzet Reborn, its pool tends to skew toward creature-based strategies. But that's just one reason more to go against the grain with the help of new tech from Strixhaven.

The Finest Vintage: Doomsday

By OdinFK (2021-04-29)

Doomsday is a scalpel. You need to know what to do with it, and you need a lot of practice in execution. But once you have picked up and mastered these skills, Doomsday is an extremely powerful deck, maybe the most powerful in all of Vintage right now. Here is everything you need to know!

The Finest Vintage: Sultai Midrange

By OdinFK (2021-03-16)

M21 Spotlight: Trouble at the Mill

By JohnnyCroat (2020-06-10)

Core Set 2021 brings about some changes to terminology. Wizards of the Coast let the Dogs out, and now, 26 years after the original Millstone, the word "mill" finally becomes a keyworded action. The first proper card to showcase the new wording may find some application in Standard too!

Playing Unpowered Vintage Jund at Eternal Weekend

By Andifeated (2020-01-15)

Vintage is a format unaffordable to many players because of the notoriously expensive Power 9 and other cards such as Mishra's Workshop and Bazaar of Baghdad. Andifeated is one of those players, but that doesn't stop him from building powerful budget decks and attending Vintage tournaments.

Why You Too Should Play European Highlander

By Ratix (2020-01-06)

Before Commander caught on, players had already been enjoying a singleton format for years. It was named Highlander — originally for the catchphrase of the 1986 cult classic which stipulates that "There can be only one," but the format also seems to want to live forever.

The Year of the Banhammer

By Rone (2019-12-20)

Pioneer at Cardmarket Series Prague

By TobiH (2019-12-06)

By HansD (2019-01-08)

Happy New Year, and welcome back! 2019 has a lot of new things in store for Magic as whole, with Magic Fests, E-Sports, and the introduction of a new format come October. There's plenty of speculation about what this format will look like, but I won't be bringing you any today in my article. Instead, I want to offer a suggestion: the "Standard-Plus" format, as it is currently referred to by Wizards of the Coast, should be a singleton format in the interest of the health of the format.

In the following, I present my top three conclusions from the Pro Tour and how they will affect the near future of Legacy.

Top 3 Standard Decks I've Played at Pro Tours

By ChristianS (2018-08-10)

Standard has been pretty dull lately, turbo fog and paradoxical outcome aside. Christian has decided that instead of rehashing the same old broken standard decks sporting a certain whirling goblin, he'd look back at his favorite decks through the ages in this look back at Standard years past.

Burning Reanimator in 2018: A Dormant Monster

By CabalTherapy (2018-06-19)

Is there a Reanimator deck more powerful and brutal than the common black-red and blue-black variants? A deck that can choose to win via Empty the Warrens, Tendrils of Agony, and Griselbrand? Definitely! But it's remained underneath the surface for far too long.

Exploiting Delve: BUG Delve(-r) in Legacy

By 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.

Legacy's Two-Cost Cantrips

By CabalTherapy (2018-04-30)

Drawing cards in Legacy is not a job relegated only to Brainstorm. There are many other potent spells that can step in and provide the much-needed card quality or card advantage. Many of these fall at a converted mana cost of two. Join me as I venture into the world of cmc two spells.
