ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-06-25)

For at least one year now, Eldrazi Tron has stuck around the top of the meta as one of the most successful decks in Modern.

Why You Too Should Play European Highlander

ConstructedBy Ratix (2020-01-06)

The Magic Grand Prix is the perfect excuse to spend a whole weekend enjoying our favorite hobby.

A Case Study on the Fall of Bant Eldrazi

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-02-02)

Modern evolves as new cards enter the format, broken enablers are banned, and archetypes are discovered through off-the-wall experimentation. What used to be a tier-one archetype can in a few months be outclassed, outdated, and outmatched by the new hotness. Bant Eldrazi is one such archetype that now finds itself looking in from the outside of a format it once used to rule. How did this powerful deck manage to quickly fall from the top of the pile?
