Spiking due to the recent unbannings. One of the best answers against Stoneforge mystic + batterskull on turn 3.

FernandoB(2018-02-14 20:11)

One of the best cards to play as RB in modern.. not to say the best. Get your hands on some before its 2 late

Akzitrone(2015-06-01 18:01)

Legacy sideboard, modern universally 1 in main deck if you hit rakdos color

Panci1990(2015-05-16 16:21)

everyone is sleeping on this card.. underrated.. it s Always good, maybe not fantastic, but you can get easy 2x1

DrakkarHeart(2015-05-16 14:28)

I got this card as a promo of the pre-release :D it did great in my aggro deck.

Coltpeacemaker(2015-05-14 18:11)

Nice card for some decks in Modern, but also in standard, good price.

Psychatogpl(2015-05-09 21:07)

I was playing against Kolaghan's Command in jund deck, it was great. This card is pretty awesome in standard too, but still very underestimated

Catchimba(2015-05-09 18:23)

I agree with all Modern-potential comments. If so, expect an increase in price; unfortunately never too steep, as it will not play more than a 1 or 2 of in most decks.

mcimba(2015-05-08 19:19)

This card has great potential for a lot of decks in Modern. I'd keep an eye out for this one

Crowb(2015-05-08 17:14)

Upcoming staple in both Grixis and Jund decks, certainly has a lot of modern potential due to the flexibility.

lordsith007(2015-05-08 15:16)

This command have found his spot into modern in the grixis aggro deck. It maindecks a copy and use to have an additional one on the sideboard.

hugo87(2015-05-08 12:24)

The new commands are awesome both in constructed and limited

sianes82(2015-05-08 12:24)

In the next Modern Season, this card will be worth 5 €. Pick them up before they explode.

Closed-Cardmarket-Account-553649(2015-05-08 10:24)

Incredible card in modern as all of the modes are useful and with only 3 casting cost.

A Look at the Top 16 Modern Decks from Cardmarket Series Barcelona

Event CoverageBy TobiH (2019-10-04)

Let's take a look at the best of what the format has to offer now, after the departure of Hogaak and Faithless Looting plus the addition of Stoneforge Mystic.

Spicy Decks from Mythic Championship IV

ConstructedBy Rone (2019-08-30)

Modern is a new format after the recent banning and unbanning. People are looking to brew tons of new decks, but Rone decided instead to look back at Mythic Championship IV Barcelona. Sure, the decks were tuned for Hogaak, but maybe there were some gems that you could adapt in the new Modern.

Legacy Treasures 2: 4c Waterfalls

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2019-08-12)

CabalTherapy is back tapping into some of the less known, but still great decks in Legacy. This time it's the "real" cascade deck: 4c Waterfalls. It's great and it's time it gets its time in the sunshine. Joing him as he gives you a snapshot of this oldie but goodie.

The Future of Dark Confidant and Modern Jund

EntertainmentBy HansD (2019-07-25)

Midrange decks are built with the metagame in mind and are thus highly customizable. Regardless, even the most customizable of these decks still play core cards that are integral to the deck’s gameplan. Very rarely, in a non-rotating format such as Modern, does a new card come along that displaces the current best-in-slot card for a midrange deck. With the printing of Wrenn and Six in Modern Horizons, I believe that Dark Confidant has found himself as the odd man out after years of being a Jund mainstay.

Esper Shadow in Modern

ConstructedBy Rone (2019-07-18)

Death’s Shadow is back! It's got a real shot at beating opponents by beating itself up. Only this time, we are getting rid of the red color and embracing white alongside some Modern Horizons additions. Join Rone as he digs into this new archetype and and its potential for Mythic Championship IV in Barcelona.

#CMWhatTheTrend - Spikes on the Horizon

FinanceBy JaminK (2019-06-27)

Hello and welcome to WhatTheTrend, the column where we will examine current trends on Cardmarket, check out why certain cards are popular and speculate about future price developments. We had a crazy week with many Modern Horizons cards jumping all over the place and we're investigating the cards that got the most attention this week.

Taking a Second Look at Modern Jund

ConstructedBy 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.

Legacy Esper with War of the Spark

ConstructedBy ChristopherB (2019-06-19)

Dangerous Propositions: Punishing Fire

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-11-14)

The Modern ban list is a maximum-security prison with 33 inmates, some of which pose a potentially serious threat to the meta. But now that Big Jace is free, anything can happen. Let's review each of the offenders to see if they're eligible for parole. This time, we talk of the burn spell that won't stay away.

Rather Exhumed: Coming Down from the Grave

ConstructedBy Rone (2018-11-09)

"Graveyard matters" cards are a key element in the Modern metagame. With Dredge on the rise due to Creeping Chill, we need to re-evaluate maindeck hate and how certain strategies rely on this part of the game. In today's article, Rodrigo ranks the format's tier decks based on their graveyard dependency.

Why You Should Play Baleful Strix: Part 1

ConstructedBy ChristopherB (2018-11-01)

Looking at the current Meta, the two most played decks are control decks. One of them plays four copies of Baleful Strix, but why? A 1/1 isn't that impressive in Legacy. Well Christopher is here to tell you what Strix is the perfect card for control and why you should be playing it!

Fighting the Good Fight - Snapcaster Mage

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-08-28)

Welcome to another edition of "Fighting the Good Fight," and this past weekend's GP results couldn't have come at a better time for today's discussion of the best blue card in Modern: Snapcaster Mage. Snapcaster has been a mainstay in Modern since the format's very start, but with how well UW Control fared, we're expecting this wizard to be even more prevalent than usual. In that case, it's doubly important that we know how we can fight against one of Modern's most powerful cards!
