New Modern Yawgmoth Tech

By K_Prinz (2021-06-22)

Yawgmoth has been a player in Modern for quite some time. Now, thanks to Modern Horizons 2, it's about time to come a-calling for a doctor's appointment in Ivy Lane, where the roots grow weak and the oaks grow strong. What better physician to deliver a message than one whose patients never die?

How Magic UX Affects You

By mateiiko (2021-04-21)

By OdinFK (2021-04-13)

Vintage decks are typically "broken" in a good way.

Kaldheim Candidates for Legacy

By CabalTherapy (2021-02-02)

Kaldheim is not an overpowered set. I am inclined to add "fortunately" to this statement because Legacy has been on a wild ride since 2019. A little change of pace does us good.
