Good old combo: Punishing Fire + Grove of the Burnwillows can play around split second card like Extripate. Split Second does not prevent from activating mana abilities, which taping a Grove is. This action puts the Punishing Fire trigger on the stack. This allows you to return it from the grave and counter the Extripate by game rules.

Worldgorging in Legacy

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2020-07-21)

The Legacy format is in a great place right now with many different archetypes and strategies celebrating success. One of the more surprising beneficiaries of the powerful printings of the last two years is a card that hasn't seen much competitive play since it was unbanned in 2015: Worldgorger Dragon.

Ramp and Let Die: Budget Fastbond in Vintage

ConstructedBy 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.

Commander Deck Tech: Dissent in the Land

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2019-12-02)

Today, we look at a Lands deck, but one that doesn't revolve around the popular commanders that we see everybody using in this context: no Omnath, no Mina and Denn, no Gitrog Monster. Today we turn to an unexpected commander for a Lands strategy. Welcome to Samut Lands.

Legacy Treasures 2: 4c Waterfalls

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2019-08-12)

CabalTherapy is back tapping into some of the less known, but still great decks in Legacy. This time it's the "real" cascade deck: 4c Waterfalls. It's great and it's time it gets its time in the sunshine. Joing him as he gives you a snapshot of this oldie but goodie.

Dangerous Propositions: Punishing Fire

ConstructedBy 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.

Melting Ice: Flipping Thing in the Ice in Legacy

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-10-11)

A 7/8 creature for two mana that does not see play in Legacy? That is totally unheard of! But that is currently the horror's fate. I think it is time to melt the ice.
