Sometimes I still use it instead of the Sol Lands. Balanced cardcard producing COLOURED mana, instead of colourless

The little brother of the black lotus is still a powerful card in any storm deck.

Playing Unpowered Vintage Jund at Eternal Weekend

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2020-01-15)

Behind the Tag - Deck Stories Part 1

EntertainmentBy ChristopherB (2018-12-13)

Nowadays, most new decks have reasonable names like "Izzet Phoenix" or "Golgari Midrange," which more or less describes what the decks do/contain. But what about deck names from days gone by?

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2018-11-02)

ConstructedBy Elric (2018-10-25)

Vintage format has been revolutionized by a card capable of winning games at instant speed and all on its own.

Melting Ice: Flipping Thing in the Ice in Legacy

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-10-11)

Premodern: Why Is It Becoming Popular and Where Is It Headed

ConstructedBy Elric (2018-09-25)

MKM Series 2018 Prague: The Death of Delver

Event CoverageBy CabalTherapy (2018-08-02)

Shorty after the groundbreaking ban of Deathrite Shaman and Gitaxian Probe, the MKM Series visited Prague, eagerly awaiting a brand new Legacy format and the new brews it would entail. Miracles ended up the best-performing deck and carried the once mighty Delver to its grave.

The Next Step for Storm

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-08-01)

No more Shaman, no more Probe. Storm lives on but will have to adapt and change much like everything else. Seizing opponents' thoughts and wrapping them in tendrils is still going to be one of the best ways of ending games of Legacy, even if its players are forced to adapt.
