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.

Rebuilding Yorion with Kaldheim

By K_Prinz (2021-01-27)

With Kaldheim coming soon and the card list now complete, it's time to take a look at what that means for Yorion decks. Especially the new Sagas seem to be of interest, so let's examine most of those. The new Pathways too, with their general impact on Standard mana bases, may unlock untapped potential!

A Vintage Brewer's Diary: 2020 in Review, Part 1

By TDD (2021-01-26)

2020 is finally behind us. As paper play was suspended, many Magic players found their way to Magic Online and Arena. Some of us Vintage boomers, however, still crave the smell of ancient cardboard. Shuffling around those broken spells. Knocking the top of the deck when we need to hit something good …

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. Disguised as Valki, the God of mischief, trickery, and lies, he makes for the first ever modal double-faced card showcasing a creature/planeswalker, ready to boost every Rakdos archetype across all formats.

Kaldheim Spotlight: Tibalt's Trickery

By TobiH (2021-01-14)

The upcoming set's red cards are full of combo potential of the best kind. There's a lot of wacky stuff that may ultimately prove too tough to pull off but, oh, so satisfying when successful. If you like to make your cards jump through hoops in hopes of a big pay day, this article is for you!

Kaldheim Spotlight: Pyre of Heroes

By Kumagoro (2021-01-11)

When Birthing Pod was banned five years ago, Modern lost its most powerful search engine. Throughout the years, several cards have tried to revive the thrill of those glorious activations, but none of them got closer to that promise than Kaldheim's Pyre of Heroes—tribal angle be damned.

Deck Tech: Back on Track with Gruul Adventures

By K_Prinz (2021-01-07)

After crushing SCG's $5K Kaldheim Championship Qualifier—going 12-0 with Gruul Adventures and getting back to the "PT"—it's time for the latest insight and sideboard guide. What's new, what changed? How and why? Here's one last look at the proven best deck in pre-Kaldheim Standard!

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!

Playmat Icons: Angels

By Kumagoro (2020-12-17)

When they're not announcing immaculate conceptions or decorating festive trees, Angels are the bringers of swift, evasive judgment in all combinations of white. Ethereal beings made of pure mana, these exquisite creatures have graced many Magic decks throughout the years — with no rest and no mercy, no matter what.

Lessons Learned at the Zendikar Rising Championship

By K_Prinz (2020-12-15)

After a less than stellar 0-4 drop at the Zendikar Rising Championship, it's time to reflect upon mistakes made, so you can learn from them as well. Indeed there's plenty opportunity for improvement, both in preparation and execution. Here's a brief tournament report, of sorts, for a brief tournament.

In the Company of Counters

By Kumagoro (2020-12-08)

Historic, the curiouser and curiouser format born and bred on MTG Arena, keeps marching toward Pioneer and beyond with the release of Kaladesh Remastered, a mash-up of the original Kaladesh and Aether Revolt sets. Among the cards that entered the pool, there's a notorious little Snake that loves creative bookkeeping.

My Decks for the Zendikar Rising Championship

By K_Prinz (2020-12-03)

I am explaining my deck choice(s) for the Zendikar Rising Championship. It's the biggest and most important tournament left this year, potentially providing a way into the MPL or Rivals. Since Standard is mostly settled, let's focus on Historic following the introduction of Kaladesh Remastered.

Commander Legends: Abomination of Llanowar on a Budget

By RyanS (2020-11-25)

Check out this budget Golgari Elf tribal deck led by the Abomination of Llanowar. Cast a lot of Elves for value, ramp and/or card draw. Somebody wipes the board? No worries, the commander cares for the number of Elves in the graveyard as well, so it will only grow bigger and bigger …

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.

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.

VIDEO: Best Deck to Get to Mythic

By HarryKhoo (2020-11-17)

In this NutsAndBolts Video, Harry explains the number one Standard deck — Gruul Adventures — and how to pilot it to Mythic in MTG Arena. While the overall Gruul strategy might cost nothing for most of you, we are also looking at cheap replacements (that save your Wildcards) and how to sideboard against other top tier decks.

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!

An Invitation to Brawl

By Kumagoro (2020-11-11)

Tired of Standard? Wishing for something cool to do with all those cards from Eldraine, Theros, Ikoria, and Zendikar? Brawl is the answer! The mostly uneventful period between the release of two premier sets is the perfect moment to give regular Standard a rest and try your hand at the up-and-coming singleton format.

Gruul Adventures Deep Dive

By K_Prinz (2020-11-09)

The last few weekends were headlined by a pretty good Gruul performance. Gruul Adventures was also one of the more successful choices in the Arena Open. So let's analyze every card in the deck and its purpose. This way, building and adapting Gruul decks for the coming weeks should be an easier task.

#CMAskTheJudge Episode 107: Killing Urborg

By MartinaT (2020-11-06)

Here's Episode 107 of Cardmarket's AskTheJudge series. Each episode includes a video that poses a question regarding the rules of Magic. Watch the video, comment with your answer, and then check your work below. This week's question is about layers, as we can never talk too much about those!

Standard Is Fun Again // Making Mythic with Golgari Legends

By TobiH (2020-10-20)

It only took three more cards getting banned from Standard. Making a lot of three-for-one trades and the occasional five-for-one was getting old fast. Now we're back to comparatively fair Magic, trading cards with our opponents two for one at a time, and that's a much more enjoyable experience.

Top 5 – Cards to Buy, Fall Edition

By Rone (2020-10-15)

Zendikar Rising has been out for a couple of weeks now and has settled in following the customary period of initial turmoil. So it's time to decide what to buy from the new set, and from others, in order to gear up for the fall season. Ready for some purchasing advice? Just keep reading.

My Decks for the 2020 Season Grand Finals

By K_Prinz (2020-10-08)

This year's Worlds replacement involves six rounds of both Standard and Historic against the best of the best. Time to find two decks — all in the short timeframe since Zendikar Rising's release and the recent ban. Does anything beat Omnath in Standard? And what about the much broader format that is Historic?

The New Scourge of Modern

By ElonThragtusk (2020-10-07)

Scourge of the Skyclaves is one of those cards that look busted at first glance but require extensive testing before it is possible to reach any definite conclusion. Now, a few weeks after the release of Zendikar Rising, we have the results and can definitely say that the verdict is in.

Will Omnath Keep Dominating Standard?

By ElonThragtusk (2020-09-30)

There was finally a good enough reason to pull the trigger and ban Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath. However, right now, the new Omnath decks appear to be much more problematic and much less reliant on Uro than the banning would suggest. Is there any chance this still balances out the Standard format?

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.

Eldrazi Tribal Commander Deck Tech: Monumental Mimeoplasm

By RyanS (2020-09-17)

Zendikar Rising is just around the corner and will have no Eldrazi. If you're feeling nostalgic for the colorless tentacle monsters, this tribal deck commanded by The Mimeoplasm is for you. Ramp out the big titans, annihilate all opposition, and marvel at the majesty of the brand-new card Forsaken Monument!

Temur Reclamation Goes Wild in Pioneer

By Rone (2020-09-15)

Temur Reclamation was one of the best performing decks over the last year in Standard. Recently banned even before rotation, the strategy has found a new format to conquer. Right now it stands as the king of the hill in Pioneer. Let's take a closer look at the current trend and possible futures.

Zendikar Rising Spotlight: Ruin Crab in Nonrotating Formats

By ElonThragtusk (2020-09-07)

In the last few years, mill decks have gained new removal and counterspells, but no useful mill cards. This lack of support is the main thing that keeps them from moving up in the meta. How likely is it that a new and, in the case of this deck, better Hedron Crab helps with this issue in Modern and other formats?

Rotation Preparation: Temur and Other Adventures

By Rone (2020-08-18)

Standard rotation is just five weeks away, which will restart the format for good. When looking for decks to play, Adventure variants from Throne of Eldraine will remain largely intact, a Block Constructed shell that becomes tier one. Let's find out about the different versions available.

BUG Control in Modern

By Skura (2020-08-13)

Following the ban of Arcum's Astrolabe from Modern, control players have to rediscover the archetype and readjust to the new environment. "Skurtai Control" is waiting in the wings to take over, quite likely the best successor to the previously dominating snow control value machines.

Rotation Preparation: Monogreen and More Beatdown

By ElonThragtusk (2020-08-12)

It is never too early to prepare for rotation. Upon the release of Zendikar Rising next month, there will only be five Standard-legal sets and, inevitably, a whole new metagame. Here are three monocolored beatdown decks that are rotation-proof and may be real contenders for the new Standard.

Embracing Demonic Embrace in Standard

By ElonThragtusk (2020-07-28)

What's the first color that comes to your mind when someone uses the term "aggro deck"? Surely it would be either red or green; doubt it would be black. If so, Demonic Embrace is here to blow your mind, as it has had some amazing results in the last month. Time to embrace your inner demon!

Jumping into Historic with Jumpstart

By Kumagoro (2020-07-27)

The allure of the peculiar Arena format is stronger than ever — both in digital form and in the real world, where Historic playing groups have started to emerge. The debut of Jumpstart, which was made Historic-legal on Arena, is yet another reason to have a look at this now suddenly supercharged format.

Transmogrify in Standard and Modern

By ElonThragtusk (2020-07-22)

Polymorph is back in a Standard-legal set, but in a new form. It's now red and exiles a creature rather than destroying it with no possibility of regeneration. That's it. The rest is completely the same. So, what does this mean for the whackier end of deck design in Standard and Modern?

Standard Data Fresh from Red Bull Untapped

By TobiH (2020-07-14)

When it comes to generating meaningful data, nothing compares to an actual big tournament. With about 1,300 players, Red Bull Untapped's recent International Qualifier definitely qualified. Straight from the source, here's information on the metagame and several key performance indicators!

Cultivate Your Ramp

By Kumagoro (2020-07-02)

Standard has no shortage of great ways to ramp, and M21 added a few more, mostly by reprinting established classics. One of these has been a staple of Commander since its debut in M11 as a functional clone of Kodama's Reach with a more generic name. Does it change anything in the way current ramp decks operate?

Ramp and Let Die: Budget Fastbond in Vintage

By Dr-Exhume (2020-06-29)

Vintage can be fun and relatively cheap? Is that true? Indeed, you can build a pair of Vintage decks for less than many Modern decks and you can even steal some games with them. Let's take a look at two Fastbond shells and revisit a couple of common misconceptions about Magic's oldest format.

Jumpstarting Jurassic Elves with Allosaurus Shepherd

By Dr-Exhume (2020-06-23)

You love Elves, Dinosaurs, and Legacy, and you dislike being interrupted? You hate it when Force of Will gets in the way? Then Jumpstart's new Allosaurus Shepherd may be exactly the right card for you: an uncounterable, Allosaurus-loving Elf to protect your green spells — all for just 1 mana.

M21 Spotlight: Monogreen Monsters

By Kumagoro (2020-06-22)

The popular monocolored archetype didn't encounter too much success in the current Standard rotation so far, but it has lately started to appear in a few tier lists. Will Core Set 2021 finally give the green stompers the additional tools they need to make greater strides in the format?

Commander on a Budget: Rith, the Awakener

By RyanS (2020-06-16)

The Ur-Dragon is definitely the ultimate Dragon tribal commander. However, if you are playing on a budget, it's not the only option. Here's how Dragons can be effective, even when they are missing two colors. Check out this Naya Dragon tribal Commander deck led by Rith, the Awakener.

M21 Spotlight: Trouble at the Mill

By JohnnyCroat (2020-06-10)

Core Set 2021 brings about some changes to terminology. Wizards of the Coast let the Dogs out, and now, 26 years after the original Millstone, the word "mill" finally becomes a keyworded action. The first proper card to showcase the new wording may find some application in Standard too!

An Ultimatum to the Meta

By Kumagoro (2020-06-09)

Standard has been weird for a while. Overpowered cards and mechanics have given birth to a number of top decks, whose diversity never mitigated their marked superiority. Now bans and the companion nerf have reset the field, but the dust hasn't settled yet, so it might be the best time to try something fun!

Forgotten Heroes

By Rone (2020-06-03)

Do you remember the first Magic creature that became the centerpiece of your deck? After all these years, so many iconic heroes have fallen by the wayside, overshadowed by better and newer alternatives. Today we pay tribute to a whole bunch of those that will forever live on in our memory if not in our decks.

Winota Rider Caught Stealing (Again?)

By ElonThragtusk (2020-05-28)

To win in today's Standard, there seem to be two rules: you better have a companion, and you also should have a good way of cheating Agents of Treachery into play. However, it appears that just meeting the second condition may be enough. The fastest way to a bargain steal is of course to enlist the help of Winota.

The Certainty of Vivien

By Kumagoro (2020-05-19)

A minor subtheme of Ikoria seems to be the cheating of permanents from the library directly onto the battlefield, also known as what Grafdigger's Cage doesn't want you to do. Lukka proceeds onward to higher mana costs, while the new Vivien takes the opposite approach. Let's see how efficiently and to what end.

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 Rise of Lukka

By Kumagoro (2020-05-07)

Ikoria had a big impact on Standard, inspiring a number of spicy brews. Cycling decks, mutate synergies, and the radical innovation of the companions are all front and center in the conversation, eclipsing the role of the three new planeswalkers. But at least one of them is already making strides to the top.

Tricky Rules Interactions, Explained: Ikoria Edition

By TobiH (2020-05-04)

Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths must be one of the most complicated sets of all time, although many of the judge calls concern just one mechanic. Check out all the tricky interactions between mutate, merged creatures, and everything else. The results, as the internet is wont to say, may indeed surprise you.

Yorion, a Nomad Mad for Standard

By BrentT (2020-04-30)

When companions were initially released, Yorion, Sky Nomad sort of flew under the radar because obviously busted Lurrus and Gyruda claimed the spotlight first. But the Standard metagame moves fast and now we're seeing Yorion variants rise to the top. Let's take a look at a couple of decks running an extra twenty cards.
