ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-05-20)

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

ConstructedBy Elric (2018-09-25)

Premodern is an "old school" balanced format for nostalgic players but is not too expensive nor too limited when it comes to its card pool. Its future will depend on the players that it will attract, as well as the overall support it will get.

Shock and Awe: The Goblin Guide Story

EntertainmentBy Kumagoro (2018-05-31)
