SpoilersBy HansD (2019-06-13)

Last week, I discussed Modern’s most exciting new toys from Modern Horizons. This week, I'm bringing out the cards that make my shake in my head in disappointment. From cards that are a few words away from being interesting build-arounds to cards that left me dumbfounded as to why they were designed the way they were, I'm going to give you a run down of the biggest MH1 misses. Stretch your thumbs and prepare your booing because this might get ugly - here's to hoping you won’t open any of these cards in your prize boosters!

Changing Times: Four Modern Axioms That Are No Longer True

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-11-06)

Let's dive right in and start with a card that was a deckbuilding taboo when I first started playing the format!

Tarmogoyf: The Downfall

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-10-16)

Modern is chock full of iconic spells, but Tarmogoyf has been a mainstay in the format for as long as it has been around. If anything, Tarmogoyf symbolizes the "old" Modern – the era of Birthing Pod, Splinter Twin, and Deathrite Shaman. As those decks have faded off into the sunset of the ban list, Tarmogoyf has been left as a member of the old guard, watching the metagame around it revolve and slowly leave it behind. Today, I want to take a look at what made Tarmogoyf so powerful, how it lost its power, and where it might be headed.

Fighting the Good Fight: Goblin Guide

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-10-12)
