Pioneer at Cardmarket Series Prague

ConstructedBy TobiH (2019-12-06)

Pioneer wasn't one of the big headliners in Prague, and the event's turnout wasn't big either. The format also experienced another round of bannings since. Nevertheless, the results call into question some previous assumptions. In particular, control fared much better than expected.

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2019-10-30)

Adventure Decks in Standard

ConstructedBy TobiH (2019-10-11)

Bringing Fun Decks to Pauper

ConstructedBy WileCoyote (2019-10-07)

Modern Horizons shook up Modern, it shook up Commander, and Pauper was on the receiving end of some spicy new cards as well. The recent banning of Gush, Daze, and Gitaxian Probe helped the metagame diversify. Now we have the breathing space that will allow new members to shine in the house of commons.

5 Exciting Build-Arounds from War of the Spark

SpoilersBy HansD (2019-04-30)

Standard has been experiencing a renaissance the past few sets, and War of the Spark looks to continue that trend.

Looking through the spoilers for WAR has shown that this set, more than any other in recent memory, is chock-full of build-arounds that could provide the building blocks for new archetypes.

The Next Step for Storm

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-08-01)
