The Big Boss like my friends like to call him. If this guy hits the game and you have no path to exile or any other super potent removal spell in hand.... run.

War of the Spark Modern Review - My Top Picks

ConstructedBy Rone (2019-05-13)

Nicol Bolas has returned to end all our beloved Gatewatch heroes! It doesn't matter who wins this war though, since we Modern players still get a lot of new planeswalkers to try out. In this article, let me try to evaluate every War of the Spark card that might be Modern material.

Should This Be Banned - Part 1

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-03-04)

We all know the hype and speculation about ban list announcements made by WotC for Modern and Legacy. But what about the commander ban list? Who takes care of it, and why are certain cards on there? Today, Robert wants to explore beyond our kitchen tables and into the broken, degenerate, format that Commander can be.

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.

#TwitterBuildsModern

EntertainmentBy JohnnyCroat (2019-01-31)

Started in 2014, the gaming world saw the birth of a most interesting digital experiment - Twitch Plays Pokémon. Indeed it was so popular that it rapidly secured a place in the Guinness Book of Records for the most players on a single-player online videogame. Could something similar be possible if we were to ask the Magic Community to build a fully functional Modern 75? There's only one way to find out!

Behind the Tag - Deck Stories Part 2

Have you ever asked yourself why a deck with three Urza lands is called Tron? Why is a Mono Blue Combo Deck named after a card that has never been a part of it? Read more about the stories of four decks in the second part of Behind the Tag.

Fighting the Good Fight: Goblin Guide

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-10-12)

"Fighting the Good Fight" returns with one of red's most iconic creature spells. While the card looks simple (and perhaps bad) on its surface, Goblin Guide has been an archetype staple for Modern's entire life span, and it's not a surprise to see why. Let's take a look at what makes this card so deadly and how to fight against it!

Fighting the Good Fight - Snapcaster Mage

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-08-28)

Welcome to another edition of "Fighting the Good Fight," and this past weekend's GP results couldn't have come at a better time for today's discussion of the best blue card in Modern: Snapcaster Mage. Snapcaster has been a mainstay in Modern since the format's very start, but with how well UW Control fared, we're expecting this wizard to be even more prevalent than usual. In that case, it's doubly important that we know how we can fight against one of Modern's most powerful cards!

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.

Tribal Attractions: Hydras

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-08-01)

With its strict, four-faction setting, Ixalan has been a very tribal block, and then Dominaria doubled down with some tribal focus of its own. Time for Kumagoro to have fun with Modern-legal concoctions for some less obvious tribes. In this installment: everyone's favorite polycephalous monstrosities.

Looking at GP Barcelona and the Post-Tournament Metagame

Event CoverageBy HansD (2018-07-09)

Isn't Modern great? Non-interactive decks like KCI and Tron run roughshod over the metagame, and in one weekend, we get five UW Control decks that top sixteen a Modern GP. It's a wild, wild world, and I want to take a quick look at how the direction of the format provided a window of opportunity for the control archetype, how the UW decks took advantage of the opportunity, and what this will mean for the metagame going forward. Let's jump right in!

Grand Prix Barcelona Tournament Report - Choosing a Modern Deck

Event CoverageBy Andifeated (2018-07-05)

In formats as old, diverse, and full of different viable strategies as Modern, one does not need to choose a deck based on the current metagame. Most competitive decks you may face only achieve about 3% meta-share, leading to almost unpredictable pairings, giving players who try to get an advantage by making smart deck choices and choosing strategies that are well placed against popular decks a hard time. This time though, it was a different story.

Dangerous Propositions: Green Sun's Zenith

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-06-14)

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 those offenders to see if they're eligible for parole. This time we talk of green's best delivery service.

Budget Decks to Get into Modern

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-05-16)

Modern can be pricey, and it’s not easy to figure out the right way to find an entry point into the format. While there’s plenty of resources about the topic on the Internet, I wanted to write this article to give a perspective about the topic of getting into Modern on a budget as another resource for those of you that find yourself in this position. I hope that you’ll find it helpful as you begin your Modern journey!

Dangerous Propositions: Cloudpost

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 has been released, anything can happen. Let’s review each of those offenders to see if they’re eligible for parole. This time we talk of big mana lands.

Bloodbraid Elf: Proving Its Weight in Modern

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-04-06)

It’s been almost two months since Bloodbraid Elf came off the ban list, and we’ve seen a wide variety of lists running the four-drop. In this week’s article, Hans ponders the effect Bloodbraid Elf has had on Modern and compiles a compendium of recent deck lists playing the elf!

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.

The 5 Most Underrated ETB Midrange Creatures

The 5 Best Land-Fetching Spells and Their Categories

EntertainmentBy Kumagoro (2018-02-14)

In a typical game of Magic, lands are the main mana producers, the fuel for the majority of spells and the more fuel you have, the farther you can travel along the mana curve. Enter several categories of spells whose main or only purpose is to increase your land count, for a variety of purposes.

The 5 Lands Most Likely to Win You a Game

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-01-31)

When Magic players think of lands, they’re most likely thinking of mana sources, or the way to get to mana sources. After all, dropping a land is the first action that takes place in almost every game of Magic. But what about those peculiar lands that are game-enders rather than game-starters?
