Commander Deck Tech: Carth and Friends

By RyanS (2021-06-23)

The introduction of Carth the Lion, a new commander from Modern Horizons 2, is bringing the superfriends archetype to Golgari. Not having access to all the colors but concentrating on black and green is a welcome change for a planeswalker-heavy build, as it helps us focus on a more fun and less oppressive strategy!

Commander Deck Tech: Get Cooking with Gyome, Master Chef

By RyanS (2021-06-01)

All foodies and amateur chefs can finally find that part of their personality represented in a card. Gyome is responsible for culinary creations (creates Food tokens) that give creatures both sustenance (indestructible) and indigestion (tapping them). Here is a recipe for a deck with layers of flavor!

Exclusive Preview: Three New Cards on Modern's Horizon

By TobiH (2021-05-27)

Here's an exclusive first look at three cards from the upcoming Modern Horizons 2. Two of them could go into the same strategy, two benefit more creative deck building, two are completely new designs never seen before, and one is a card that has never been reprinted in 21 years!

Chain of Smog Combo: Witherbloom Rules Legacy

By Rone (2021-05-24)

During Strixhaven preview season, the almost forgotten Chain of Smog rose to new prominence and a new price point. Belittled as a purely theoretical gimmick, the combo with magecraft has since been able to prove its mettle in Legacy, in a variety of shells, alongside Witherbloom Apprentice.

Strixhaven Mechanics Spotlight: Magecraft & More

By Skura (2021-03-29)

Strixhaven is a school of magic and the namesake set introduces a bunch of mechanics that absolutely reflect that. There are lessons to be learned, wards to be explored, and there's magecraft to exploit. If you want to know why a card like Chain of Smog is going through the roof—look no further!

Commander Legends: Akroma and Kamahl Empowering the Weak

By RyanS (2020-11-23)

If beating down with a bunch of creatures is what you like to do, then check out this deck commanded by the new partner pair Akroma and Kamahl. Using their boosting abilities, this Selesnya strategy turns an army of small tokens into an even bigger threat to trample over your opponents.

The Best-Designed Cards in Magic History

By mateiiko (2020-10-14)

Magic's recent design history has proven to be … troublesome, with several cards dominating multiple formats and getting banned not too soon after. For a change of scenery, let's look at some of the best designs from the game's past. (Please, do keep in mind that the following is by all means a subjective list.)

Commander Deck Tech: Ashaya, Soul of the Wild

By BrentT (2020-10-06)

You don't see monogreen combo decks every day, but Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is here to change that! Fresh from Zendikar Rising, Ashaya can combo you out or beat you down, but, either way, it makes for an awesome commander. Come check out this draft of what an Ashaya EDH deck could look like.

Field of the Dead in Modern

By Skura (2020-09-22)

Field of the Dead has been terrorizing a bunch of different formats in Magic over the past year, and it got itself banned from several. Recently, to the surprise of many, it has also had an increasingly meaningful impact on Modern. Let's explore the various Field shells that currently populate the format.

Rotation Grief: Guilds of Ravnica, Part 2

By Kumagoro (2020-08-17)

The Standard rotation is coming in September! Time to acknowledge the sudden disappearance from our decks of all the cards from the four rotating sets. We continue this journey of grief (or perhaps jubilation) by looking into the multicolored and colorless cards Standard is going to lose when Guilds of Ravnica rotates out.

Yorion, Sky Nomad Rises in Modern

By Rone (2020-05-25)

"Come slide down rainbows in the sky, let's fly away. Like a bird, you're free to see the boundless face of the earth. Let the wind blow you like a kite and glide away." This is what it feels like to try Yorion in Modern, where the sky is the limit and all your wishes come true by playing an 80-card deck.

Piercing Prey in Modern with Gruul Obosh

By ElonThragtusk (2020-05-18)

Every time Ponza, the red-green posterboy of Modern, becomes viable, it disappears again rather quickly. Despite its upsides, it often struggles to close the game, while the prevalence of Astrolabe isn't helping either. Against all odds, it enjoyed a glorious return to the spotlight recently, thanks to Ikoria.

The Top 16 Modern Decks from Cardmarket Series Paris

By ElonThragtusk (2020-02-13)

The Modern main event of Cardmarket Series Paris this past weekend was the perfect opportunity to witness a fresh metagame in action and in its first steps of evolution. We did see many decks we somewhat didn't expect, not just within the second half of the Top 16, but also among the first half.

Theros Beyond Death Review for Highlander, Part 1

By Ratix (2020-01-29)

It's time to take a look at what dwells deep in the underworld and high up in the heavens of Theros Beyond Death. Singleton formats in particular stand to gain a lot of exciting toys. That's not just true for Commander, but also for the competitive world of one-on-one European Highlander!

Return to Podland: Enigmatic Incarnation in Standard

By Kumagoro (2020-01-28)

We're back on Theros, and that means enchantments in Standard have started to matter even more. Devotion and constellation aside, one card stands out as an exciting engine that makes use of enchantments in a novel way, turning them into launch pads for a new Birthing Pod adventure.

Theros Beyond Death Spotlight: Heliod Combo

By Rone (2020-01-09)

Time for some sweet New Year's spoilers from Theros Beyond Death. In today's article, Rone goes deep into the latest infinite combo involving Walking Ballista and Heliod, Sun-Crowned. Powerful in Modern and possibly ban-worthy in Pioneer, it's the Splinter Twin of the new decade!

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.

A Look at the Top 16 Modern Decks from Cardmarket Series Prague

By Andifeated (2019-12-03)

Modern is a hotbed of variety and the Cardmarket Series Prague metagame was no different. The Top 16 alone featured 14 different decks and proved again that Modern is the most diverse of all Constructed format. Let's take a closer look at the state of Modern after Throne of Eldraine and Stoneforge Mystic have settled in.

Commander Deck Tech: Dissent in the Land

By RJGiel (2019-12-02)

Today, we look at a Lands deck, but one that doesn't revolve around the popular commanders that we see everybody using in this context: no Omnath, no Mina and Denn, no Gitrog Monster. Today we turn to an unexpected commander for a Lands strategy. Welcome to Samut Lands.

The Stuff of Nightmares

By Peanut (2019-07-29)

In 2007, the Duel Decks: Elves vs. Goblins product released. After Peanut saw the first set, he thought he could do better than Wizards of the Coast, so he did (at least in my opinion). More specifically, he made an Atog deck. Now, years later, he feels it's time to find its worthy opponent in the form of Nightmares!

#CMWhatTheTrend - Giver of Runes

By JaminK (2019-06-19)

Hello and welcome to WhatTheTrend, the column where we'll examine current trends on Cardmarket, check out why certain cards are popular, and speculate on future price developments. This week, we'll be discussing Giver of Runes. She was often compared to her Legacy Mother and was thus quickly dismissed – but they fill completely different roles!

The Hitchhiker's Guide to Nyx

By RJGiel (2019-06-17)

Christmas came early for Magic players – we're barely out of spoiler season for Modern Horizons, and already diving into Core 2020. Wizards of the Coast has provided us with an excusive spoiler card, and we're pumped to reveal it!

By RJGiel (2019-05-20)

Let's look at the wild wild west that is Commander with its infinite ways to build Commander decks, but only certain ways to fit specific playgroups and play styles. What decks are considered "casual" and what makes a deck competitive?

War of the Spark Modern Review - My Top Picks

By Rone (2019-05-13)

Nicol Bolas has returned to end all our beloved Gatewatch heroes! It doesn't matter who wins this war though, since we Modern players still get a lot of new planeswalkers to try out. In this article, let me try to evaluate every War of the Spark card that might be Modern material.

It's All About Prime Speaker Vannifar

By HansD (2019-03-19)

To say that Standard is thriving would be an understatement. With a multitude of fully-viable build-around cards and a deep pool of supporting cards, this Standard might be one of the most diverse Standards in the history of Magic. Brewers all over the Internet have been sharing new and exciting lists every week, it seems, and the card I want to focus on today is a "fixed" version of a card that's banned in Modern: Prime Speaker Vannifar.

By RJGiel (2019-02-18)

In this series, I'd like to talk about picking a commander based on its colors. In this article, we will start by looking at the mono-colored options and the challenges that will come with building one.

Behind the Tag - Deck Stories Part 2

By ChristopherB (2019-01-16)

Have you ever asked yourself why a deck with three Urza lands is called Tron? Why is a Mono Blue Combo Deck named after a card that has never been a part of it? Read more about the stories of four decks in the second part of Behind the Tag.

A Thorough Look into Ultimate Masters - Part 3

By Kumagoro (2018-12-14)

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. We're looking at all these reprints to see what they bring to the UMA experience and the secondary market; now it's time to end the exploration with green and colorless.

By RyanS (2018-11-27)

Ryan is back with more Commander deck techs. This time he's playing politics with a group hug pet project. Join him as he explains the art of the "deal."

Tribal Attractions: A Halloween Horror Story

By Kumagoro (2018-10-30)

Happy Halloween! The boundary with the Otherworld is at its thinnest! Time to appease those mischievous spirits, lest they give us bad draws all year long! Let's do it with some sympathetic magic, by building a cool, spooky casual deck using the most holiday-appropriate of all the tribes.

Hochstapler – Bavarian Highlander

By Andifeated (2018-08-10)

Highlander might be the most popular way to build casual decks and enjoy Magic in a non-tournament environment. There are many ways to play Highlander and while Elder Dragon Highlander (AKA Commander) might be the most popular by far, there are many more ways to build singleton decks and have fun at the kitchen or bar table. Andifeated is here to show you a bavarian variant of Highlander – or as they call it in southern Germany “Hochstapler”.

By HansD (2018-07-18)

Welcome to the second installment of Rogue Deck Review! Today we're taking a look at five rogue decks that are worth sharing, whether it's because of quirkiness, metagame viability, or accessibility. Without further ado, let's jump right in to our first list!

Define This: Deck Categories

By Moudou (2018-06-26)

Magic is a game of terms. There are dozens of aspects of the game that are poorly defined and many unoffical words have become standard issue. In this article, Moudou will define and codify various deck categories in this, the first part of a longer series on Magic terminology.

Dangerous Propositions: Green Sun's Zenith

By Kumagoro (2018-06-14)

The Modern ban list is a maximum security prison with 33 inmates, some of which pose a potentially serious threat to the meta. But now that Big Jace is free, anything can happen. Let's review each of those offenders to see if they're eligible for parole. This time we talk of green's best delivery service.

By Kumagoro (2018-03-28)

The Modern ban list is a maximum-security prison with 33 inmates, some of which pose a potentially serious threat to the meta. But now that Big Jace has been released, anything can happen. I'll cover each offender in its own article to see who is eligible for parole, starting with the godmother of interactive combo decks.

By Rone (2018-03-07)

Since the last banned announcement unchained Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Bloodbraid Elf, Modern has shaken up drastically - or has it? Although most players are brewing decks that include these cards, I've decided to make the ultimate survival guide for fighting against them.

A Case Study on the Fall of Bant Eldrazi

By HansD (2018-02-02)

Modern evolves as new cards enter the format, broken enablers are banned, and archetypes are discovered through off-the-wall experimentation. What used to be a tier-one archetype can in a few months be outclassed, outdated, and outmatched by the new hotness. Bant Eldrazi is one such archetype that now finds itself looking in from the outside of a format it once used to rule. How did this powerful deck manage to quickly fall from the top of the pile?
