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.

Changing Tides: U/R Delver in Legacy

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-10-24)

Five Legacy Decks That Could Play Snapcaster Mage But Don't
