The one and only. The original power source of the most powerful effects in this great game

DefaultUser(08.05.2015 16:30)

This is the most expensive promotional land out there. There's also misprint where the golden symbol is upside down due to a print sheet having been stamped upside down. The symbol looks a bit like a drowning man. Those misprints are very expensive, as most were destroyed by Carta Mundi, while few slipped through quality control.

The time has come to take a look at a deck that does what most people want to do when they think of Vintage. After Dredge and Shops, it's time to examine the blue part of the Vintage metagame and what is currently its most prominent representative. It's time to power up and jump into the breach!

By TDD (2021-02-03)

This is the second part of my personal 2020 review, brought to you through the medium of paper Vintage decks. Last time, we got halfway through the year, and we looked at five different decklists. Today, we'll go over five more brews from the second half of the year. Let's dive in!

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.

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 …

Playmat Icons: Sphinxes

By Kumagoro (2021-01-21)

When they're not eating those who fail to solve their puzzle challenges, Sphinxes incarnate blue's card advantage in the shape of evasive finishers. Be they pulled from ancient Egyptian lore or from Greek mythology, it's not a mystery that these cunning creatures puts an enigmatic twist to their Magic builds.

Day of the Dragons

By SanchoN (2021-01-16)

The Impact of Commander Legends on Legacy

By Rone (2021-01-12)

The holiday season is over, and Commander Legends has been with us for more than 50 days now. Time enough to see results, time to take inventory. Which cards from Commander Legends made the cut in Legacy and where do they fit in? Let's rank the best of the bunch and look at lots of lists!

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.

Commander Deck Tech: Sakashima and Vial Smasher

By RyanS (2021-01-04)

Have you ever won a game of Commander without dealing combat damage? Check out this Grixis Commander deck helmed by Sakashima and Vial Smasher to find out how. Make clones and copies of the best things on the board and try to win by doubling or even tripling the damage from Vial Smasher's effect.

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.

My Decks for the Zendikar Rising Championship

By K_Prinz (2020-12-03)

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!

Pauper Metagame Overview

By PR0boszcz (2020-10-22)

Pauper is getting more attention and love from the Wizards of the Coast.

Let's take a look at an interesting metagame, with aggro, control, and combo all represented.

Modernizing Gifts Storm with Modal Double-Faced Cards

By Andifeated (2020-10-12)

Zendikar Rising is no exception to this trend. This article examines the impact of the new modal double-faced cards on Modern's Gifts Storm archetype.

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?

Bringing the Party to Standard

By ElonThragtusk (2020-09-23)

Apparently, you have to fight … for your right to party. The brand-new mechanic is a little hard to make work in the context of 60-card decks, but the potential rewards are plentiful. Let us take a look at party and other tribal shenanigans in the updated Standard format with Zendikar Rising.

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?

Zendikar Rising Spotlight: Valakut Awakening

By BrentT (2020-09-03)

Zendikar Rising previews kicked off in earnest this week with the unveiling of a new type of double-faced card coming to Standard.

Taking Control of Pioneer with Azorius

By Skura (2020-08-27)

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.

Why Empty the Warrens Is the Best Storm Spell in 2020

By 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.

Art Appreciation: Double Masters

By SanchoN (2020-08-10)

Here's a deck focused on making copies and tokens of powerful threats to overwhelm your opponents. The best part is that the whole thing costs just about 37 euros.

Ninjas Sneaking to the Top in Legacy

By Andifeated (2020-08-03)

The ninjutsu keyword was introduced to Magic with Betrayers of Kamigawa in 2005 and has been a fan favorite ever since. It tries to display the trickery and mastery in stealth that Ninjas are known for within the mechanics of the game. Recently, the tribe has seen renewed success in Legacy.

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.

Slinging Spells in Standard and Modern Izzet Tempo

By ElonThragtusk (2020-07-15)

Recent sets, such as Ikoria and Core Set 2021 impacted the metagames of multiple formats, but they also made way for some interesting non-meta strategies. One of the most prominent candidates is Izzet Spells, a tempo deck that can be easily tuned to become an aggro and/or even a budget deck.

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?

How to Sideboard with Control Decks

By Skura (2020-06-24)

In Magic, you play up to two thirds of all games postboard. If you want to win at Magic, it's imperative for you to be proficient at sideboarding. This article focuses on one archetype which the author is known to have mastered. Let's take a deep look at your control deck's fifteen, how to pick and how to use them.

M21 Spotlight: Teferi, Master of Time

By Rone (2020-06-11)

Teferi has returned! After a long time being an Azorius planeswalker, he is back in blue for Core Set 2021, showcasing a whole new static ability, tons of variant frames, and ultimately what he does best — bending time at his will. Let's look at the future impact of our beloved mage of Zhalfir.

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 Enlightenment of Narset

By Kumagoro (2020-05-27)

With her Ikorian incarnation, Narset, the set's third planeswalker, has come full circle, regaining all the colors of the Jeskai Way. What does this entail for the neuro-atypical kung-fu heroine? More importantly, what does it mean for the control decks that choose to embrace her Triome?

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.

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.

Gyruda, Doom of Standard and Legacy

By Andifeated (2020-04-22)

Ikoria's infamous companion mechanic has changed Magic as we knew it. The set has only been available on Magic Online and MTG Arena for a few days, but Gyruda is already terrorizing both Standard and Legacy. Learn about the decks that have been successful on the first weekend and how to use them.

Ikoria Spotlight: Vivien, Monsters' Advocate

By Rone (2020-04-14)

If you need someone's advice facing them, Vivien Reid is the perfect companion for this journey. Today we are reviewing the main protagonist's new card and its future applications.

Ikoria Spotlight: Competitive Constructed Companions

By 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.

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?

Written in the Stars: Constellation in Standard

By Kumagoro (2020-03-26)

Do you like drawing cards and growing creatures? If so, you're bound to like what Constellation, the Cinderella mechanic from Journey into Nyx, has brought back to Standard upon its return in Theros Beyond Death. Here's a little history lesson as well as a look at current-day applications.

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

By 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.

Getting into Legacy for 200 Euros with Omni Tell

By SamuelS (2020-03-05)

Legacy is a notoriously daunting format to enter because of expensive staple cards like Force of Will. However, competing on a budget is far from impossible. Let's explore a powerful contender that you can build for a fraction of the price of most Legacy decks and that will leave you with a solid base for upgrades.

Playing with Other People's Stuff: A 40 Euro Dimir Commander Deck

By RyanS (2020-03-04)

Breaking the Mold: Having Fun in Modern

Kiora Redesigns the Simic Ramp

By Kumagoro (2020-02-06)

Ramping in green is easy, but choosing the right payoff can be as crucial as sculpting the perfect curve. A big unkillable monster? A mass effect that dismantles the opponent's board? A permanent theft? How about all of the above? Enter Kiora Bests the Sea God, depicting our planeswalker's greatest achievement.

Return to Podland: Enigmatic Incarnation in Standard

By Kumagoro (2020-01-28)

Why You Too Should Play European Highlander

By Ratix (2020-01-06)

Echo of Eons in Legacy

By CabalTherapy (2020-01-02)

Pioneer at Cardmarket Series Prague

By TobiH (2019-12-06)

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?

By Rone (2019-10-14)

By RJGiel (2019-09-10)

Taking a Second Look at Modern Jund

By HansD (2019-06-25)

Modern has changed in the five years I’ve been playing and following it, and some decks that used to be on top of the dogpile have found themselves kicked off their perch. As Modern has become more powerful, aggressive, and linear, many of the fair, interactive decks that reigned supreme have gone the way of the dinosaur. Jund is one of these decks that has been pushed out more and more by the changes in the metagame, but Modern Horizons has brought along a good number of new toys that warrant giving this battered archetype a second chance.

#TwitterBuildsModern Episode Two: The Drudge of Dredge!

By JohnnyCroat (2019-03-29)

Graveyard decks come in many shapes and sizes. There's Living End, which is usually brought back out for a spin every time some new cool ETB effects get printed. UB Storm is in effect a graveyard deck, relying on Past in Flames in order to be able to recycle a big heap of cheap cantrips so as to generate massive card advantage and storm count. There's Dredge itself, happy to dump as many cards into the bin as possible, and then cheating several itty bitty bothersome monsters into play, which have a tendency to come back turn after turn after turn. So then, how does this relate to Maze's End? Read on!
