Rotation Grief: Ixalan (Part 2)

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-08-28)

The Standard Rotation looms closer with each passing day. How the meta will change, at first, will be a direct consequence of the disappearance of four rotating sets. We continue this journey of grief (or jubilation, depending on who you ask) by looking at the red, green, multicolored, and colorless cards we'll have to remove when Ixalan rotates.

Three Decks for Beginners in Legacy

ConstructedBy ChristopherB (2019-02-19)

Getting into Legacy is quite difficult. The Reserved List made many keycards expensive and the deck variety is high. Here are three decks that are comparatively cheap and powerful to start Legacy.

A Sweep Is as Lucky as Lucky Can Be - The Wrath of God Story

EntertainmentBy Kumagoro (2019-01-16)

The battlefield in a game of Magic often gets cluttered. And when that happens, what it needs is a good sweep. Fortunately, there have been cards providing help with this operation since the beginning of time, from those who called forth divine anger to those who made a star explode in the vicinity.

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2018-11-30)

If you've read Andifeated's last two articles, you should've learned a lot about playing Dredge in Legacy already, but there is one important topic that hasn't been discussed yet and it might be the hardest area of the archetype: Casting Cabal Therapy correctly. Learn how to pick em right here!

Christian has played Magic for a long time now. Last time, he covered his favorites from Standard. Here, he's looking at Modern and Extended. Read on to find out his personal favorites, from metal men to titans of Magic history.

The Next Step for Storm

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2018-08-01)

No more Shaman, no more Probe. Storm lives on but will have to adapt and change much like everything else. Seizing opponents' thoughts and wrapping them in tendrils is still going to be one of the best ways of ending games of Legacy, even if its players are forced to adapt.

You Shall Not Heal: The Skullcrack Story

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-07-27)

Burn is possibly the oldest strategy in the game, dating back to the wild times of "all bolts" decks. Lifegaining is the natural enemy of Burn and Skullcrack is the natural enemy of life gain. But there are others and Kumagoro divulges their short and fascinating history here.

ConstructedBy Rone (2018-07-19)

Death's Shadow has been one of the most dominant cards in Modern these recent years. In this series of articles, Rone discusses its evolution and the various shells that thrive on self-inflicted pain. Part one is focused on the Grixis shell and its past, present and future.

Alternative Pitch: The Force of Will Story

EntertainmentBy Kumagoro (2018-06-29)

Over the years, alternative costs have become common, appearing in a wide range of different forms, the most thrilling of which involve the opportunity to cast a spell by spending resources that aren't mana. Force of Will and its brethren are still the mainstays of this category, but are far from alone.

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.

Event CoverageBy Alakazimdk (2018-01-23)

This article will try to give you and your team some options for the Legacy component of upcoming Team Constructed events. I’ll give each deck two scores, the first for experienced Legacy players and the second for players who are not as familiar with Legacy as a format.
