That creature is really good.

miccox89(29.05.2015 09:18)

Best black creature ever made, huge advantages, no backdraws. Artwork is realy nice and foil, must have!

Butanero(27.05.2015 10:37)

A must in Sneak-Show, Reanimator, and any strategy involving

big guys. However, Emrakul usually has a bigger overall impact

ezechiele2917(16.05.2015 00:30)

The most poweful creature of Magic. This card is unbelievable ovepowered and with reanimator decks, you can get it out really quickly. It's not only a great beater; the opponent can't attack unless he wants you to get 7 lifepoints... and drawing 7 cards it's a big step toward the winning.

Creatura leggendaria incredibilmente forte, inserita nel rianimate asfalta gli avversari.

Why Empty the Warrens Is the Best Storm Spell in 2020

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2020-08-11)

Tendrils of Agony may still be the most-feared storm spell ever printed, frequently providing an immediate kill. But more often than not Empty the Warrens edges out the black card on overall efficiency. This is especially true in the Legacy format of today. Let's look at why you should empty your warrens in 2020.

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2020-07-21)

Ramp and Let Die: Budget Fastbond in Vintage

ConstructedBy 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.

Ikoria Spotlight: Competitive Constructed Companions

SpoilersBy TobiH (2020-04-07)

Ikoria's new ability companion adds a touch of the Commander experience to regular Magic. You can reveal one companion from your sideboard before each game, if your presented deck matches the card's specified restriction, and then cast it from there once during that game. Let's look at implications and decks.

The Good, the Bad, and the Underrated: A Lhurgoyf Tribute

EntertainmentBy Dr-Exhume (2020-03-25)

"Ach! Hans, run! It's the Lhurgoyf!" The sound of these words is smoother than any other flavor text to my ears. With this article I want to pay tribute to a creature tribe that many people know best for its poster child, the Tarmogoyf. But let us not forget about its relatives.

Green's Noncreature Evergreens

ConstructedBy Dr-Exhume (2019-12-12)

Green is best known for huge creatures like Force of Nature or Avatar of Might. These cards shaped the perception of the color for a long time.

Dangerous Propositions: Dark Depths

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-02-19)

Why Standard-Plus Should Be a Singleton Format

EntertainmentBy HansD (2019-01-08)

Happy New Year, and welcome back! 2019 has a lot of new things in store for Magic as whole, with Magic Fests, E-Sports, and the introduction of a new format come October. There's plenty of speculation about what this format will look like, but I won't be bringing you any today in my article. Instead, I want to offer a suggestion: the "Standard-Plus" format, as it is currently referred to by Wizards of the Coast, should be a singleton format in the interest of the health of the format.

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?
