Event CoverageBy ElonThragtusk (2020-02-13)

The Modern main event of Cardmarket Series Paris this past weekend was the perfect opportunity to witness a fresh metagame in action and in its first steps of evolution. We did see many decks we somewhat didn't expect, not just within the second half of the Top 16, but also among the first half.

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-08-24)

In each installment of the Inner Workings series, we'll examine a different Modern archetype to find out what makes it tick. This time, it's the turn of Bloomless Titan, the heir of the explosive ramp deck that used to perform a grand juggling act with bounce lands, Amulets and Titans.

Top 3 Standard Decks I've Played at Pro Tours

ConstructedBy ChristianS (2018-08-10)

Standard has been pretty dull lately, turbo fog and paradoxical outcome aside. Christian has decided that instead of rehashing the same old broken standard decks sporting a certain whirling goblin, he'd look back at his favorite decks through the ages in this look back at Standard years past.

Modern Myths: Debunking the Format's Biggest Misconceptions

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-05-09)

Modern has a lot of things said about it, and I want to tackle in this week's article a few that I find to be myths about the format. I'm calling these four "Modern Myths," and I hope that bringing up these topics will spark a discussion. Do you think you'll agree with these points? Let's dive in and start off with the first one.

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-04-11)

Modal spells - everyone's favorite way to pack a bigger bang for your buck while dealing with the inherent available slot restrictions in 60-card decks. The best of such cards were frequently chase rares in the past and Collective Brutality is no exception; let’s choose to see why.

GP Madrid Aftermath: A Weekend Full of Magic

Event CoverageBy Rone (2018-03-19)

The Magic Grand Prix is the perfect excuse to spend a whole weekend enjoying our favorite hobby. Normally, the main event is what attracts most players’ attention – its coverage, Top 8 decklists, and of course, the GP winners. But there are many other things that one can have a go at aside from the competition.

There and Back Again: The Bloodbraid Elf Story

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-03-01)

If not exactly the Queen of Jund (that’s of course Liliana), Bloodbraid Elf was certainly its High Priestess back in the times. Now that she’s been unleashed on the Modern format once again, is she going to find a home in a drastically changed meta, or will she go the way of Bitterblossom?

Back to Basic Lands: Mono Color Decks in Modern

ConstructedBy Rone (2018-01-31)

Starting over in Magic is always difficult, especially Eternal formats where there is no rotation, and card staples tend to be expensive. Fortunately, there are some budget archetypes that allow you to start playing Modern and then evolve into a tier deck. Today, we are going to break down some mono color decks for Modern.

Which Hour of Devastation cards are showing up in the new Standard?

Get to the Choppa!

PT EMN aftermath

It seems like the first impressions from the PT have sunk in, and players have started to dig deeper into the available information.

Pro Tour Tentacles vs. Zombies

FinanceBy DrHoeh (2016-08-06)

The Pro Tour coverage managed to paint the picture of Liliana battling Emrakul nicely (not only with the short video clip between rounds), but how successful were these signature cards of Eldritch Moon really?

Storylines matter

Always look on the bright side of life

Mythics of the Gatewatch

FinanceBy DrHoeh (2016-01-15)

Yesterday I suggested that you might not be interested in a high percentage of the mythic rares in Oath of the Gatewatch. Of course that depends on the formats you intend to play.

Year of the Eldrazi

FinanceBy DrHoeh (2015-12-30)

By now players start realizing that the Eldrazi theme might become just as dominant in Standard as the Khans cards are/were, especially after the next rotation.
