From the Vault: Kaalia

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-07-16)

Kaalia of the Vast might be one of the most iconic Commanders ever printed. Every long-time Commander player has either played a Kaalia deck or died playing against it. M20 had many surprises for commander players old and new alike, one of them was a callback to the infamous Human Cleric.

The Way They Were: Ten Modern Horizons Callbacks

SpoilersBy Kumagoro (2019-06-24)

Modern Horizons was expressly designed to introduce powerful cards into the Modern pool. To this end, it employed a triple approach: brand new cards; reprints that weren't Modern-legal yet; and last but not least, cards that mimic signature spells from the past.

Hello and welcome to WhatTheTrend, the column where we'll examine current trends on Cardmarket, check out why certain cards are popular, and speculate on future price developments.

Modern Horizons Preview (Part 1) - The Most Exciting Cards for Modern

SpoilersBy HansD (2019-06-05)

While the winter holiday season is oftentimes referred to as "the season of giving," the true season of giving has to be spoiler season for any new Magic: The Gathering set. Modern Horizons spoilers haven’t been fully released yet, but just with what we've been given - almost a half of the set - there have already been several cards that have made my eyes pop out with excitement. Whether it's the card's power-level or their build-around potential, I'm quite certain that these cards are going to make a noticeable - if not far-reaching - impact on Modern, and I'm looking forward to diving into discussing them in this week's article.

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-05-20)

Let's look at the wild wild west that is Commander with its infinite ways to build Commander decks, but only certain ways to fit specific playgroups and play styles. What decks are considered "casual" and what makes a deck competitive?

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? Where does "the Rock" come from? What does "Death and Taxes" have to do with a white weenie deck? This is a series meant to discuss, briefly, the history behind these names.

Event CoverageBy CabalTherapy (2018-08-15)

The team Pro Tour 25 in Minneapolis featured Legacy and many players had feared drastic changes to the format once the pros start working on decks. In the end, we experienced a rather average snap shot of the meta paired with some smaller surprises. In the following, I present my top three conclusions from the Pro Tour and how they will affect the near future of Legacy.

A Forbidden Love: Krav and Regna Commander Deck Tech

ConstructedBy RyanS (2018-08-15)

Battlebond reintroduced partner commanders and even though it was a bit different from their 2016 debut, the Partner mechanic did not disappoint. Having two commanders is a powerful option in the ever-popular Elder Dragon Highlander (EDH) aka the Commander format. In this article, I will be looking at an unusual pair: Krav, a demon and Regna, an angel – lovers and partners. Here's a casual fun Commander deck built around them.

Only Two Things in Life Are Certain: An Interview on Death and Taxes

ConstructedBy Alakazimdk (2018-03-26)

Recently I played versus "Egget" on MTGO and he showed me some new tech out of his R/W Death and Taxes deck that I piqued my curiosity. So I sat down and had a chat with him about how he came up with it and what results he has gotten as well as where he thinks the deck is headed from here.
