Dangerous Propositions: Dark Depths

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-02-19)

The Modern ban list is a maximum security prison with (KCI update!) 34 inmates, some of which could potentially pose a serious threat to the meta. In this ongoing series, we're reviewing each of those offenders to see if they're eligible for parole. This time it's the turn of the evil queen of the tokens.

Behind the Tag - Deck Stories Part 1

EntertainmentBy ChristopherB (2018-12-13)

Nowadays, most new decks have reasonable names like "Izzet Phoenix" or "Golgari Midrange," which more or less describes what the decks do/contain. But what about deck names from days gone by? Where does "the Rock" come from? What does "Death and Taxes" have to do with a white weenie deck? This is a series meant to discuss, briefly, the history behind these names.

Myth & Magic: Anima Mundi, the World Soul

EntertainmentBy JohnnyCroat (2018-10-01)

Elementals are a wonderful creature type, as they can essentially be whatever a set needs at any given time. Their mythos and origins are somewhat more academic than goblins or dragons. So, make yourself a cup of tea and let me walk you through some of the philosophical aspects of what we know as Anima Mundi, the World Soul.

Fighting the Good Fight - Snapcaster Mage

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-08-28)

Welcome to another edition of "Fighting the Good Fight," and this past weekend's GP results couldn't have come at a better time for today's discussion of the best blue card in Modern: Snapcaster Mage. Snapcaster has been a mainstay in Modern since the format's very start, but with how well UW Control fared, we're expecting this wizard to be even more prevalent than usual. In that case, it's doubly important that we know how we can fight against one of Modern's most powerful cards!

ConstructedBy Alakazimdk (2018-03-26)

Recently I played versus "Egget" on MTGO and he showed me some new tech out of his R/W Death and Taxes deck that I piqued my curiosity. So I sat down and had a chat with him about how he came up with it and what results he has gotten as well as where he thinks the deck is headed from here.
