Got banned in Modern today. Looking forward to a price decrease.

Multi Format Play in basically every deck that can play a longer game or that ramps (uro, omnath und co. Are there) Keeps opposing creatures in check, even if the board gets wiped, you just get new zombies on the next turn. And yes, this is a land...

Mythulro(05.09.2020 15:09)

One of the best Modern cards

DiegoB(25.04.2020 09:30)

Yes it triggers when it enters as the 7th land itself

bearmtg(17.11.2019 19:26)

Not in standard, but it's still a great land … use it in all my commander decks, so much value … but that could explain why it's still going up in value!?!

KarstenP(22.10.2019 17:28)

Now banned in standard. Will it affect the price? What about modern relevance?

scearhead(06.07.2019 14:16)

Seems great for my Colorless Eldrazi EDH Deck that.

Shyrocco(04.07.2019 09:29)

Does this trigger when its the seventh land itself?

By Kumagoro (2021-08-25)

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!

Valki and Omnath Meet at Valakut … (Five-Color Scapeshift)

By Rone (2021-03-22)

In a new Modern era without Uro, four-color piles are no longer playable, right? Well, that is unless Omnath joins forces with Tibalt to bring the all-time greatest Valakut shell to light. If you enjoy a colorful mana base that supports sheer everything and even kills opponents, then here's the Modern deck for you!

Control Decks in Post-Ban Modern

By Skura (2021-02-25)

It was barely a month ago that control variants utterly dominated the Modern metagame. But the recent banned and restricted announcement shook the archetype's very foundations. Will it be able to hold on to its tier one position despite the changes? Can it adapt? Let's look at decklists!

By IIItygraIII (2021-02-09)

Top 5 Cards That Should See More Play in Modern

By Skura (2021-02-01)

Modern is a vast format with dozens upon dozens of viable archetypes. To me, it's the most diverse, fun, stimulating, and overall best format in Magic. However, people sometimes tunnel vision on a narrow subset of cards that they keep playing over and over again and forget the cards that need exploring.

Kaldheim Spotlight: Valki // Tibalt

By Rone (2021-01-18)

With Kaldheim, the snowiest plane of all, Tibalt returns to Magic history—and to make history himself.

Kaldheim Spotlight: Sarulf, Realm Eater

By ElonThragtusk (2021-01-06)

The preview season for Kaldheim started out slow, so it's not surprising that Sarulf is one of the most discussed cards so far. Its abilities are very powerful in theory, but both its power level and its playability are hard to evaluate. This happens to make us want to dive into the topic of Realm Eating even more!

VIDEO: 4C Uro Piles Deck Tech (Modern) + Deck Variants

By NayRained (2020-11-18)

Since its release in Theros Beyond Death, Uro seems to be everywhere. And understandably so, as he is a jack of all trades with life gain, ramp, card draw as well as being a chunky creature. In this video, Snapbooster explains how to get the best out of the Titan with this control-like 4C Uro Piles Deck.

The Many Flavors of Modern Control

By Skura (2020-11-17)

Modern has always been known for being the most open and diverse competitive Magic format, and this time it's not any different. In this article, we want to look at a bunch of different Cryptic Command control decks, including some lesser-known variants, that are part of the metagame right now.

Omnath's Life Beyond Standard

By Rone (2020-11-12)

While the marquee card of Zendikar Rising only lasted three weeks in Standard and on MTG Arena, Omnath, Locus of Creation can redeem itself by being a playable but not completely busted contender in other formats. Pioneer, Modern, and even Legacy — we review every Omnath strategy!

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.)

Turning the Corner with Control Decks

By Skura (2020-10-05)

Any given game of Magic eventually has to end. Every player wants to be on the side of the one killing and not the one being killed. However, it becomes very tricky when your deck is ill-equipped to actually finish the game. Today, let's talk about closing the game with control decks.

Field of the Dead in Modern

By Skura (2020-09-22)

By Kumagoro (2020-09-14)

Rotation is just a few days away! Time to acknowledge the sudden disappearance from our decks of all the cards leaving the format.

By Kumagoro (2020-09-09)

By Kumagoro (2020-08-17)

How the M21 Reprints Impact Pioneer

By Kumagoro (2020-06-30)

Pioneer debuted as a nonrotating format inserted between Standard and Modern and featuring all cards stretching back to Return to Ravnica.

Upgrading Ruthless Regiment on a Budget

By RJGiel (2020-05-15)

Let's take a look at some affordable and effective upgrades, so that you can better hold your own in your Commander playgroup.

Arena Exploits: Adventures in Mythic/Simic

By TobiH (2020-04-01)

Maintaining a Top 100 Mythic rank on MTG Arena's ladder is a tough grind, especially in today's Standard where all decks fight on plenty of axes and most matchups are fifty-fifty. How about a deck that's as broken as it gets, more consistent than many, and almost too much fun to play?

The Future of Modern After Once Upon a Time

By ElonThragtusk (2020-03-12)

After several months of a Modern metagame dominated by Once Upon a Time, everyone who didn't manage to squeeze it into their deck can rejoice. Its power level has proved the card worthy of a ban, and it's now leaving the format. Read on to find out in which direction the new Modern may be headed.

Titan Shift, although not the most popular Modern deck right now, still saw a decent amount of play throughout 2019, especially in the final few months. Read on to see why it shouldn't be any less of a factor in the year to come, and what new tools and circumstances have improved its position in the metagame.

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)

2019 will be remembered for many things: insanely powerful cards, Arena Mythic Championships, the creation of Pioneer.

Mythic Championship VII: Cat Out of the Bag

By Kumagoro (2019-12-13)

White-Blue Control's Pioneer Premiere

Pioneer at Cardmarket Series Prague

By 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.

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

By JohnnyCroat (2019-12-04)

Cardmarket Series Prague featured a brand new Standard format once again. While Oko was out, the oven was still burning with the fire of invention.

Commander Deck Tech: Dissent in the Land

By RJGiel (2019-12-02)

Survival Guide for an Enchanted Meta

By Kumagoro (2019-11-27)

Following the November 18 bans, the Year of the Food has officially come to an end—and it was actually just six very intense weeks. In its wake, several top decks are now vying for Standard supremacy, and one thing most of them have in common is their focus on one key artifact or enchantment.

Jeskai Fires in Post-Oko Standard

By Rone (2019-11-20)

Stomping All Over Standard with Stompy

By WileCoyote (2019-10-29)

If you're looking for a Standard deck to play at your local FNM or Store Championship, netdecking the latest trend isn't always the best approach. Building your own and following its journey, sticking with a strategy even after rotation, can have its own rewards …

Mythic Championship V: Twilight of the Dead

By Kumagoro (2019-10-23)

The penultimate Arena Mythic Championship was foremost a Golos affair, yet the wandering robot and its favorite Zombieland destination failed to reach the topmost place in their final Standard showcase. This ended up the privilege of the reigning, and fervent, world champion.

Inner Workings: Field of Golos

By Kumagoro (2019-10-16)

The release of Throne of Eldraine impacted Standard in explosive ways. After the fairy dust settled, a tier-one deck emerged, surprisingly unhindered by the departure of Scapeshift, and stronger than ever in the new midrange metagame. Will it be obliterated by the upcoming DCI rulings?

Adventure Decks in Standard

By TobiH (2019-10-11)

It seems Golos decks with Field of the Dead are all that anyone's talking about these days. But when it comes to actual, measurable results at real-life Standard tournaments, Adventure decks have just made a big splash, claiming five of the Top 8 spots at a major event. Let's take a look!

Rotation Grief: Dominaria (Part 2)

By Kumagoro (2019-10-02)

The Standard Rotation is upon us. The coming meta will be shaped, in part, by what we lose. We've reached the end of this journey of grief (or jubilation, depending on who you ask) as we look into the red, green, multicolored, and colorless cards we'll have to remove from our Standard decks as Dominaria rotates out.

Rotation Grief: Rivals of Ixalan (Part 2)

By Kumagoro (2019-09-20)

The Standard Rotation looms closer with every passing day. The major meta shift will come first as a consequence of four sets disappearing from Standard. Kumagoro looks at the red, green, multicolored, and colorless cards in Rivals of Ixalan, which may be the last small expansion ever (if the Three-and-One Model sticks).

Rotation Grief: Ixalan (Part 2)

By Kumagoro (2019-08-28)

The Standard Rotation looms closer with each passing day. How the meta will change, at first, will be a direct consequence of the disappearance of four rotating sets.

Rotation Grief: M19 (Part 2)

By Kumagoro (2019-08-01)
