Countering a key spell while being tapped out in modern can be really demolishing

The Future of Modern After Once Upon a Time

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-03-12)

After several months of a Modern metagame dominated by Once Upon a Time, everyone who didn't manage to squeeze it into their deck can rejoice. Its power level has proved the card worthy of a ban, and it's now leaving the format. Read on to find out in which direction the new Modern may be headed.

Legacy Treasures: Dragon Stompy

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2019-11-08)

CabalTherapy is taking yet another trip down memory lane and revisits a deck that used to be the best prison strategy in Legacy. Sit down and fasten your seatbelts because we are going to travel into a long-gone past when Dragons ruled the format.

Identifying Commander Decks: It's Easy as ABC

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?

Dangerous Propositions: Dark Depths

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-02-19)

The Modern ban list is a maximum security prison with (KCI update!) 34 inmates, some of which could potentially pose a serious threat to the meta. In this ongoing series, we're reviewing each of those offenders to see if they're eligible for parole. This time it's the turn of the evil queen of the tokens.

Cantripping through Memory Lane: Legacy Solidarity

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-11-07)

It has been a while, but a brand new card from Ravnica revived Solidarity and could make it great again. It's a return to the roots of Legacy players everywhere.

Inner Workings: Bloomless Titan

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-08-24)

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 Bloomless Titan, the heir of the explosive ramp deck that used to perform a grand juggling act with bounce lands, Amulets and Titans.

Inner Workings: Ad Nauseam

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-07-18)

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 Ad Nauseam, the only combo deck in Modern to abuse a card also commonly seen in Legacy to create a flashier play.

Choose Their Poison: The Collective Brutality Story

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-04-11)

Modal spells - everyone's favorite way to pack a bigger bang for your buck while dealing with the inherent available slot restrictions in 60-card decks. The best of such cards were frequently chase rares in the past and Collective Brutality is no exception; let’s choose to see why.

5 Dragons You Might Meet on the Battlefield

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-03-23)

Dracarys! Despite their typical casting cost being midrange and beyond, Dragons always find a way to show up in decks of all kinds. Their current situation across the formats is not too shabby, and not just in red-based builds. Here’s a selection of the flying terrors all the cool kids are playing.

Zero Thrill: The Pact of Negation Story

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-03-14)

Were Force of Will available in Modern, the format would be dramatically altered. And yet, Modern does already contain a piece of non-conditional zero-cost countermagic, and while it's not played as much as Vintage and Legacy's signature counterspell, it's been tentatively around since Modern's early days.

Grand Prix Copenhagen

FinanceBy DrHoeh (2020-01-15)

Grand Prix Copenhagen is just around the corner and will be much more exciting than I imagined a few weeks ago, as we did not see the metagame get solved at GP Charlotte last week.
