great for mana fixing in any green/black deck, a staple in modern with perfect synergy with fetch lands

One of my favourite card arts. It's so good when a useful card has an cardart picture aswell.

Data Analysis: The Top Modern Decks, November 2021

By Aliquanto (2021-11-25)

Let the Hunger (Tide) Games Begin

By Rone (2021-10-13)

Modern is a vibrant format where the metagame constantly keeps evolving. While the Jund combination has traditionally supplied a generic midrange strategy, today we look at a different shell. It revolves around sacrificing your own creatures to Goblin Bombardment and Grist, master of the Hunger (Tide) Games!

Eminent Domain: The New Five-Color Decks of Modern

By Rone (2021-06-24)

Commander Deck Tech: Carth and Friends

By RyanS (2021-06-23)

The introduction of Carth the Lion, a new commander from Modern Horizons 2, is bringing the superfriends archetype to Golgari. Not having access to all the colors but concentrating on black and green is a welcome change for a planeswalker-heavy build, as it helps us focus on a more fun and less oppressive strategy!

New Modern Yawgmoth Tech

By K_Prinz (2021-06-22)

Yawgmoth has been a player in Modern for quite some time. Now, thanks to Modern Horizons 2, it's about time to come a-calling for a doctor's appointment in Ivy Lane, where the roots grow weak and the oaks grow strong. What better physician to deliver a message than one whose patients never die?

An Actual Tribal Squirrel Deck in Modern

By Kumagoro (2021-06-14)

Mark Rosewater has won yet another uphill battle. One of his many pet projects, the reintroduction of Squirrels in black-bordered Magic, has crossed a crucial milestone with the printing of twelve new cards in Modern Horizons 2. Now Modern has become fertile terrain for the woodland critters to conquer.

Brewing with Shardless Agent in Modern

By Rone (2021-06-07)

After nine years the dream came true. Shardless Agent is finally becoming a Modern-legal card, thanks to Modern Horizons 2, the upcoming set that is taking the format into a whole new era. Whether you like it or not, Modern won't ever be the same again. Let's start building decks!

Commander Deck Tech: Get Cooking with Gyome, Master Chef

By RyanS (2021-06-01)

All foodies and amateur chefs can finally find that part of their personality represented in a card. Gyome is responsible for culinary creations (creates Food tokens) that give creatures both sustenance (indestructible) and indigestion (tapping them). Here is a recipe for a deck with layers of flavor!

Data Analysis: The Top Modern Decks, April–May 2021

What I'm Playing This Weekend at the Kaldheim Championship

By K_Prinz (2021-03-26)

What do you get when you test for a major tournament with the likes of Brad Nelson, Seth Manfield, and the famous "Czech House"? Great options for Historic, a deck choice for Standard upon which the whole team agreed, and a solid starting point for a hopefully successful weekend!

Valki and Omnath Meet at Valakut … (Five-Color Scapeshift)

By Rone (2021-03-22)

In a new Modern era without Uro, four-color piles are no longer playable, right? Well, that is unless Omnath joins forces with Tibalt to bring the all-time greatest Valakut shell to light. If you enjoy a colorful mana base that supports sheer everything and even kills opponents, then here's the Modern deck for you!

Three Modern Decks to Play After the Bans

By ElonThragtusk (2021-02-23)

Last week, five more cards have been banned from Modern in one of the biggest announcements in recent memory. This caused quite a stir, killing some strategies and making others (even) better. Which decks can we expect to see rise to the top now? We can quickly come up with at least three!

Elves Making a Comeback with Kaldheim

By ElonThragtusk (2021-02-22)

With Kaldheim giving us so many new Elves, it's no surprise how everybody thought the tribe was finally making a big return. However, it's been out of the meta for so long that everyone lost count. It would probably take a miracle … Are the new cards, together with the most recent bans, just that?

More Winners from Our Valentine's Day Deck Building Contest

By CMInsightTeam (2021-02-14)

A couple of weeks ago we posted a deck building challenge on social media: design a Commander deck focused on partners—however you want to interpret that word. We got so many great submissions, they didn't all fit into our main winner video. So here are three additional ideas to inspire all Commander lovers out there!

Top 5 Cards That Should See More Play in Modern

By Skura (2021-02-01)

Modern is a vast format with dozens upon dozens of viable archetypes. To me, it's the most diverse, fun, stimulating, and overall best format in Magic. However, people sometimes tunnel vision on a narrow subset of cards that they keep playing over and over again and forget the cards that need exploring.

Kaldheim Spotlight: Valki // Tibalt

By Rone (2021-01-18)

With Kaldheim, the snowiest plane of all, Tibalt returns to Magic history—and to make history himself. Disguised as Valki, the God of mischief, trickery, and lies, he makes for the first ever modal double-faced card showcasing a creature/planeswalker, ready to boost every Rakdos archetype across all formats.

Kaldheim Spotlight: Pyre of Heroes

By Kumagoro (2021-01-11)

When Birthing Pod was banned five years ago, Modern lost its most powerful search engine. Throughout the years, several cards have tried to revive the thrill of those glorious activations, but none of them got closer to that promise than Kaldheim's Pyre of Heroes—tribal angle be damned.

Kaldheim Spotlight: Sarulf, Realm Eater

By ElonThragtusk (2021-01-06)

The preview season for Kaldheim started out slow, so it's not surprising that Sarulf is one of the most discussed cards so far. Its abilities are very powerful in theory, but both its power level and its playability are hard to evaluate. This happens to make us want to dive into the topic of Realm Eating even more!

In the Company of Counters

By Kumagoro (2020-12-08)

Historic, the curiouser and curiouser format born and bred on MTG Arena, keeps marching toward Pioneer and beyond with the release of Kaladesh Remastered, a mash-up of the original Kaladesh and Aether Revolt sets. Among the cards that entered the pool, there's a notorious little Snake that loves creative bookkeeping.

My Decks for the Zendikar Rising Championship

By K_Prinz (2020-12-03)

I am explaining my deck choice(s) for the Zendikar Rising Championship. It's the biggest and most important tournament left this year, potentially providing a way into the MPL or Rivals. Since Standard is mostly settled, let's focus on Historic following the introduction of Kaladesh Remastered.

VIDEO: 4C Uro Piles Deck Tech (Modern) + Deck Variants

By NayRained (2020-11-18)

Since its release in Theros Beyond Death, Uro seems to be everywhere. And understandably so, as he is a jack of all trades with life gain, ramp, card draw as well as being a chunky creature. In this video, Snapbooster explains how to get the best out of the Titan with this control-like 4C Uro Piles Deck.

Omnath's Life Beyond Standard

By Rone (2020-11-12)

While the marquee card of Zendikar Rising only lasted three weeks in Standard and on MTG Arena, Omnath, Locus of Creation can redeem itself by being a playable but not completely busted contender in other formats. Pioneer, Modern, and even Legacy — we review every Omnath strategy!

My Decks for the 2020 Season Grand Finals

By K_Prinz (2020-10-08)

This year's Worlds replacement involves six rounds of both Standard and Historic against the best of the best. Time to find two decks — all in the short timeframe since Zendikar Rising's release and the recent ban. Does anything beat Omnath in Standard? And what about the much broader format that is Historic?

The New Scourge of Modern

By ElonThragtusk (2020-10-07)

Scourge of the Skyclaves is one of those cards that look busted at first glance but require extensive testing before it is possible to reach any definite conclusion. Now, a few weeks after the release of Zendikar Rising, we have the results and can definitely say that the verdict is in.

Eldrazi Tribal Commander Deck Tech: Monumental Mimeoplasm

By RyanS (2020-09-17)

Zendikar Rising is just around the corner and will have no Eldrazi. If you're feeling nostalgic for the colorless tentacle monsters, this tribal deck commanded by The Mimeoplasm is for you. Ramp out the big titans, annihilate all opposition, and marvel at the majesty of the brand-new card Forsaken Monument!

Rotation Grief: Guilds of Ravnica, Part 2

By Kumagoro (2020-08-17)

The Standard rotation is coming in September! Time to acknowledge the sudden disappearance from our decks of all the cards from the four rotating sets. We continue this journey of grief (or perhaps jubilation) by looking into the multicolored and colorless cards Standard is going to lose when Guilds of Ravnica rotates out.

Embracing Demonic Embrace in Standard

By ElonThragtusk (2020-07-28)

What's the first color that comes to your mind when someone uses the term "aggro deck"? Surely it would be either red or green; doubt it would be black. If so, Demonic Embrace is here to blow your mind, as it has had some amazing results in the last month. Time to embrace your inner demon!

Ramp and Let Die: Budget Fastbond in Vintage

By Dr-Exhume (2020-06-29)

Vintage can be fun and relatively cheap? Is that true? Indeed, you can build a pair of Vintage decks for less than many Modern decks and you can even steal some games with them. Let's take a look at two Fastbond shells and revisit a couple of common misconceptions about Magic's oldest format.

An Ultimatum to the Meta

By Kumagoro (2020-06-09)

Standard has been weird for a while. Overpowered cards and mechanics have given birth to a number of top decks, whose diversity never mitigated their marked superiority. Now bans and the companion nerf have reset the field, but the dust hasn't settled yet, so it might be the best time to try something fun!

Yorion, Sky Nomad Rises in Modern

By Rone (2020-05-25)

"Come slide down rainbows in the sky, let's fly away. Like a bird, you're free to see the boundless face of the earth. Let the wind blow you like a kite and glide away." This is what it feels like to try Yorion in Modern, where the sky is the limit and all your wishes come true by playing an 80-card deck.

Yorion, a Nomad Mad for Standard

By BrentT (2020-04-30)

When companions were initially released, Yorion, Sky Nomad sort of flew under the radar because obviously busted Lurrus and Gyruda claimed the spotlight first. But the Standard metagame moves fast and now we're seeing Yorion variants rise to the top. Let's take a look at a couple of decks running an extra twenty cards.

Updating Modern Jund

By Andifeated (2020-04-03)

Theros Beyond Death impacted a lot of nonrotating formats with broken combo cards like Thassa's Oracle and Underworld Breach. But not only did the unfair strategies get new power-creep toys — the Titan duo of Uro and Kroxa changed the faces of many midrange decks as well. Let's see what Jund gets out of that!

The Good, the Bad, and the Underrated: A Lhurgoyf Tribute

By Dr-Exhume (2020-03-25)

"Ach! Hans, run! It's the Lhurgoyf!" The sound of these words is smoother than any other flavor text to my ears. With this article I want to pay tribute to a creature tribe that many people know best for its poster child, the Tarmogoyf. But let us not forget about its relatives.

The Top 16 Pioneer Decks from Cardmarket Series Paris

By Rone (2020-03-02)

Cardmarket Series Paris gave us a Top 8 filled with Spirits and White-Blue Control. Red-Green Stompy and Sultai Midrange made it to the semifinals, while Lotus Breach claimed the trophy as well as the Players Tour invite. But where was Dimir Inverter? In the Top 16, that's where!

World Championship XXVI: Dreams Do Come True

By Kumagoro (2020-02-21)

Legendary Brazilian Hall-of-Famer Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa piloted his unforgiving Azorius Control to the fabulous grand prize against Márcio Carvalho in a tense final that had Portuguese as its first language. A victory that puts a highly coveted bow on an extraordinary career.

The Top 16 Standard Decks from Cardmarket Series Paris

By JohnnyCroat (2020-02-17)

Theros Beyond Death gave us a brand new Standard format. The Top 8 of the Standard main event of Cardmarket Series Paris 2020 already featured a bunch of innovations, and the next eight players in line added even more spice to the mix. Check out their decklists here!

The Top 16 Modern Decks from Cardmarket Series Paris

By 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.

Top 5 Cards to Buy in January

By Rone (2020-01-22)

The year just started and Theros Beyond Death is available to purchase. However, there is so much more out there to invest in. Rone has compiled his personal list of the Top 5 cards you should consider buying this month, with highlights from almost all Constructed formats.

Why You Too Should Play European Highlander

By Ratix (2020-01-06)

Before Commander caught on, players had already been enjoying a singleton format for years. It was named Highlander — originally for the catchphrase of the 1986 cult classic which stipulates that "There can be only one," but the format also seems to want to live forever.

Tribal Attractions: Standard Wolves

By Kumagoro (2019-12-16)

Not just Knights. The tribal options in Standard are more varied than meets the eye, and a ferocious pack of canines is one of the most entertaining to assemble, with all those apex predators, as well as their off-tribe and planeswalking friends, eager to answer your call and begin their wild hunt.

Mythic Championship VII: Cat Out of the Bag

By Kumagoro (2019-12-13)

The final entry in the Mythic Championship series, as well as the last big professional event of the year, presented a reasonably varied Standard metagame. Though there were more than a few twists as well as a couple notable absentees.

A Look at the Top 16 Standard Decks from Cardmarket Series Prague

By JohnnyCroat (2019-12-04)

Cardmarket Series Prague featured a brand new Standard format once again. While Oko was out, the oven was still burning with the fire of invention. The Top 8 was low on green and high on Flash decks, but the rest of the Top 16 included lots of Golgari, some Gruul, and all the Beasts and Knights one could wish for …

Brawling in Eldraine: Three Planeswalker Decks for Brawl

By RyanS (2019-11-07)

Magic players are finally playing Brawl, mostly thanks to the format's run on Arena. Time for some fun! Ryan looks at the newest planeswalkers from Throne of Eldraine: The Royal Scions, Garruk, Cursed Huntsman, and Oko, Thief of Crowns, and turns them into Brawl commanders.

What is Dead May Never Die: Modern Dredge After Faithless Looting

By Andifeated (2019-10-21)

When Hogaak Summer concluded with a big Banned and Restricted List announcement, many decks were hurt by the removal of Faithless Looting—especially graveyard strategies like Dredge. Learn how they survive the loss of their most important turn-one play and what direction Modern takes from here.

Adventure Decks in Standard

By TobiH (2019-10-11)

It seems Golos decks with Field of the Dead are all that anyone's talking about these days. But when it comes to actual, measurable results at real-life Standard tournaments, Adventure decks have just made a big splash, claiming five of the Top 8 spots at a major event. Let's take a look!

A Faithless Looting Eulogy Part 1

By Rone (2019-09-09)

It's time to say goodbye to one of Modern's defining cards, Faithless Looting. Rone does so by singing the praises of each archetype it helped enable, while discussing the futures of these archetypes in a post-looting world. This time, Rone covers the big three - Izzet Phoenix, Dredge, and the Hogaak Menace itself.

Jamin's First Grand Prix Top 8

By JaminK (2019-08-27)

Jamin played a total of 33 Grand Prix before getting a Top 8 finish. But last weekend, his time had come and he crushed the competition using the recently banned Modern menace that is Hogaak. Join him in telling weird stories about an 8/8 trample that isn’t Hogaak, 13 card sideboards, and a minor laziness incident that ended up costing him.

#CMWhatTheTrend - Hogaak & Leyline of the Void

By JaminK (2019-07-31)

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. This week, we're examining the biggest threat in Modern and the most common answer to it.

The Future of Dark Confidant and Modern Jund

By HansD (2019-07-25)

Midrange decks are built with the metagame in mind and are thus highly customizable. Regardless, even the most customizable of these decks still play core cards that are integral to the deck’s gameplan. Very rarely, in a non-rotating format such as Modern, does a new card come along that displaces the current best-in-slot card for a midrange deck. With the printing of Wrenn and Six in Modern Horizons, I believe that Dark Confidant has found himself as the odd man out after years of being a Jund mainstay.

A Tale of Four WAR Oathbreakers

By RyanS (2019-07-01)

Do you play Oathbreaker? Here are four deck techs featuring planeswalkers from the new set War of the Sparks. Ryan Scicluna breaks down four decks for this exciting new format. The decks include: Vraska and her deathtouch squad, all the Ajani’s we can fit, hand disruption with Davriel and spell slinging with Ral Zarek.

#CMWhatTheTrend - Spikes on the Horizon

By JaminK (2019-06-27)

Hello and welcome to WhatTheTrend, the column where we will examine current trends on Cardmarket, check out why certain cards are popular and speculate about future price developments. We had a crazy week with many Modern Horizons cards jumping all over the place and we're investigating the cards that got the most attention this week.

Taking a Second Look at Modern Jund

By HansD (2019-06-25)

Modern has changed in the five years I’ve been playing and following it, and some decks that used to be on top of the dogpile have found themselves kicked off their perch. As Modern has become more powerful, aggressive, and linear, many of the fair, interactive decks that reigned supreme have gone the way of the dinosaur. Jund is one of these decks that has been pushed out more and more by the changes in the metagame, but Modern Horizons has brought along a good number of new toys that warrant giving this battered archetype a second chance.

Bridgevine's Missing Piece

By Andifeated (2019-06-13)

It was obvious that Modern Horizons would introduce some cards to the Modern metagame to help fringe strategies push their way into the meta. Nobody expected the monster that Wizards would unleash with Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis. Read about Bridgevine's rise from fringe status to potentially format defining.

5 Exciting Build-Arounds from War of the Spark

By HansD (2019-04-30)

Standard has been experiencing a renaissance the past few sets, and War of the Spark looks to continue that trend. One of the most exciting aspects of Standard is that it has been a brewer's paradise, with off-meta decks such as Chromatic Black, Bant Vannifar, Five-Color Guildgates, and more proving the existence of creative deckbuilding in the format. Looking through the spoilers for WAR has shown that this set, more than any other in recent memory, is chock-full of build-arounds that could provide the building blocks for new archetypes. Let's jump right in and look at the five most exciting build-arounds I've found from the new set!

#TwitterBuildsModern Episode Two: The Drudge of Dredge!

By JohnnyCroat (2019-03-29)

Graveyard decks come in many shapes and sizes. There's Living End, which is usually brought back out for a spin every time some new cool ETB effects get printed. UB Storm is in effect a graveyard deck, relying on Past in Flames in order to be able to recycle a big heap of cheap cantrips so as to generate massive card advantage and storm count. There's Dredge itself, happy to dump as many cards into the bin as possible, and then cheating several itty bitty bothersome monsters into play, which have a tendency to come back turn after turn after turn. So then, how does this relate to Maze's End? Read on!

It's All About Prime Speaker Vannifar

By 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.

Mythic Championship I: The Results Hangover

By Rone (2019-03-12)

Are you already tired of all the Mythic Championship I data out there, yet you still don't know what to play once the new set comes out? Don't let numbers get you dizzy! Here are the best tips taken from 2019MC1 to catch you up on the Standard format after this big tournament.

The Winners and Losers of the First Mythic Championship

By HansD (2019-02-26)

Mythic Championship 1 was one of the best premier tournaments in recent memory, with a wide variety of deck archetypes leaving a mark on the Standard metagame. Like any major tournament, there were winner and losers, and Hans is here to take the time this week to go over the cards and decks that left an impression. Some were good, some were bad, but they were all meaningful, so check out his findings below!

Important Changes to Standard With Ravnica Allegiance

By JaminK (2019-01-31)

Ravnica Allegiance has finally been released everywhere. It has been out on Magic Online for a week longer already and Standard has already undergone great changes with the new cards. Today I want to take a look at the biggest shake-ups in the new Standard.

The Standard Black-Green Midrange Compendium

By HansD (2018-11-26)

PT Guilds of Ravnica may have had a Top 8 filled to the brim with White Aggro, but Hans believes Golgari Midrange still has what it takes to beat any of the format's big hitters. Take a look inside to know all about the inside-outs of B/G Midrange in Standard!

5 Lessons Learned from PT Guilds of Ravnica

By Toffel (2018-11-14)

Magic can be a tough game. There is a lot of uncertainty, and it's therefore hard to pinpoint the source of success or failure. Join Toffel for his journey leading up to PT Guilds of Ravnica and the events many ups and downs.

Dangerous Propositions: Punishing Fire

By Kumagoro (2018-11-14)

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 is free, anything can happen. Let's review each of the offenders to see if they're eligible for parole. This time, we talk of the burn spell that won't stay away.
