A Layperson's Guide to the Gods

By Kumagoro (2021-01-25)

They're hungry for devotion on Theros, ask feats of the mortals on Amonkhet, and have literally two faces on Kaldheim. Magic's Gods are a colorful bunch—and not just figuratively, as they mostly appear in five-color cycles. Let's gaze at them in awe, from the dawn of their creation to their not quite Götterdämmerung.

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!

Yorion, Sky Nomad Rises in Modern

By Rone (2020-05-25)

"Come slide down rainbows in the sky, let's fly away. Like a bird, you're free to see the boundless face of the earth. Let the wind blow you like a kite and glide away." This is what it feels like to try Yorion in Modern, where the sky is the limit and all your wishes come true by playing an 80-card deck.

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.

Ikoria Spotlight: Zilortha, Strength Incarnate

By ElonThragtusk (2020-04-09)

Pretty much every Magic set brings us both powerful and underwhelming cards. When a card's power level is hard to evaluate, experiments become desirable. Because of that, let's dig into some Standard Gruul decks both new and old and see if Zilortha really is as strong as its name suggests.

Updating Modern Jund

By Andifeated (2020-04-03)

Theros Beyond Death impacted a lot of nonrotating formats with broken combo cards like Thassa's Oracle and Underworld Breach.

By RJGiel (2020-01-27)

By JohnnyCroat (2020-01-14)
