It's All About Prime Speaker Vannifar

ConstructedBy HansD (2019-03-19)

To say that Standard is thriving would be an understatement. With a multitude of fully-viable build-around cards and a deep pool of supporting cards, this Standard might be one of the most diverse Standards in the history of Magic. Brewers all over the Internet have been sharing new and exciting lists every week, it seems, and the card I want to focus on today is a "fixed" version of a card that's banned in Modern: Prime Speaker Vannifar.

Inner Workings: Saheeli Evolution

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-09-20)

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 a different kind of toolbox deck, featuring the relocation to Modern of the infinite creatures combo that broke Standard last year.

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-05-25)

In each installment of the Inner Workings series, we’ll examine a different Modern archetype to find out what makes it tick.

From Legends to Dominaria and Everything In Between - Part 2

EntertainmentBy Kumagoro (2018-05-04)

Taking our cue from Dominaria’s legendary theme, we keep exploring the past of the controversial supertype, entering the era of the Modern border, the Kamigawa explosion, and all the other legends that populated the sets from the second decade of Magic’s history.

Playing Pauper with the Soul Sisters

ConstructedBy RyanS (2018-05-02)

I came across an interesting Soul Sister’s combo deck at my local LGS. This got me thinking about Soul Sisters in Pauper and, in this article, I take a look at three different version of Soul Sisters for Pauper each a little different from the other.

The Best Angels for Each Era of Magic

EntertainmentBy Kumagoro (2018-04-19)

Magic has existed for 25 years now, and Angels have been around from the beginning, always eager to protect the worthy (the player) and punish the wicked (the opponent). To celebrate their everlasting piety and fury, let’s decide which have been the true paragons of virtue at each stage of Magic’s history.

Dangerous Propositions: Birthing Pod

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-03-28)

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 has been released, anything can happen. I'll cover each offender in its own article to see who is eligible for parole, starting with the godmother of interactive combo decks.

Eldritch Standard Evolution

FinanceBy DrHoeh (2016-08-01)

New Standard results have arrived, but they mostly aren't very new at all.

Bear with me!

FinanceBy DrHoeh (2015-11-28)

This deck is great at disabling or at least delaying the most unfair plans the other Modern decks bring to the table.
