By Aliquanto (2021-11-25)

However, there are always eager players who still want to innovate and revolutionize what we know is already perfectly fine. Let's explore the decks that have experienced major innovations and the reasons for them.

Let the Hunger (Tide) Games Begin

By Rone (2021-10-13)

Modern is a vibrant format where the metagame constantly keeps evolving. While the Jund combination has traditionally supplied a generic midrange strategy, today we look at a different shell. It revolves around sacrificing your own creatures to Goblin Bombardment and Grist, master of the Hunger (Tide) Games!

By Rone (2021-08-24)

Modern Horizons 2 Spotlight: Grief

By ElonThragtusk (2021-05-29)

A better version of a (somewhat) popular Legacy card is coming to Modern—what could possibly go wrong? Between its own power and its synergy with certain other cards, the true question is which will prevail. Will it be responsible for new discard-heavy decks, fit into an existing archetype, or both?

Exclusive Preview: Three New Cards on Modern's Horizon

By TobiH (2021-05-27)

Here's an exclusive first look at three cards from the upcoming Modern Horizons 2. Two of them could go into the same strategy, two benefit more creative deck building, two are completely new designs never seen before, and one is a card that has never been reprinted in 21 years!

Three Modern Decks to Play After the Bans

By ElonThragtusk (2021-02-23)

Last week, five more cards have been banned from Modern in one of the biggest announcements in recent memory. This caused quite a stir, killing some strategies and making others (even) better. Which decks can we expect to see rise to the top now? We can quickly come up with at least three!

Kaldheim Spotlight: Valki // Tibalt

By Rone (2021-01-18)

With Kaldheim, the snowiest plane of all, Tibalt returns to Magic history—and to make history himself. Disguised as Valki, the God of mischief, trickery, and lies, he makes for the first ever modal double-faced card showcasing a creature/planeswalker, ready to boost every Rakdos archetype across all formats.

The New Modern Silliness: Hammertime, Obosh, Oh Boy!

By ElonThragtusk (2021-01-13)

2020 was a crazy year for Modern. With so many powerful cards making their debut, it's no wonder the metagame still tends to change so rapidly and so seriously. The last two or three months alone have brought us at least two completely new decks, and another one has made a sudden resurgence.

Kaldheim Spotlight: Pyre of Heroes

By Kumagoro (2021-01-11)

When Birthing Pod was banned five years ago, Modern lost its most powerful search engine. Throughout the years, several cards have tried to revive the thrill of those glorious activations, but none of them got closer to that promise than Kaldheim's Pyre of Heroes—tribal angle be damned.

By Rone (2020-10-15)

Piercing Prey in Modern with Gruul Obosh

By ElonThragtusk (2020-05-18)

Every time Ponza, the red-green posterboy of Modern, becomes viable, it disappears again rather quickly. Despite its upsides, it often struggles to close the game, while the prevalence of Astrolabe isn't helping either. Against all odds, it enjoyed a glorious return to the spotlight recently, thanks to Ikoria.

Theros Beyond Death Review for Highlander, Part 2

By Ratix (2020-02-04)

We continue our dive into the new set from the perspective of a European Highlander player. Today we will discuss noteworthy black and red cards that may have impact on several archetypes. Aristocrats, Gruul, and Black Aggro welcome some new additions. But beware, there are traps too!

Why You Too Should Play European Highlander

By Ratix (2020-01-06)

Before Commander caught on, players had already been enjoying a singleton format for years. It was named Highlander — originally for the catchphrase of the 1986 cult classic which stipulates that "There can be only one," but the format also seems to want to live forever.

A Faithless Looting Eulogy, Part 2: In Memoriam

By Rone (2019-10-08)

The mourning continues in this series about the monumental banning of Faithless Looting from Modern. This time, Rone dives into the rest of the affected strategies in order to find the best future build for Mono-Red Prowess, Hollow One, and Mardu Pyromancer, to name but a few!

A Look at the Top 16 Modern Decks from Cardmarket Series Barcelona

By TobiH (2019-10-04)

As usual, the Modern field at the most recent stop of the Cardmarket Series was the most diverse. The Top 16 featured no less than 15 different archetypes! Let's take a look at the best of what the format has to offer now, after the departure of Hogaak and Faithless Looting plus the addition of Stoneforge Mystic.

Spicy Decks from Mythic Championship IV

By Rone (2019-08-30)

Modern is a new format after the recent banning and unbanning. People are looking to brew tons of new decks, but Rone decided instead to look back at Mythic Championship IV Barcelona. Sure, the decks were tuned for Hogaak, but maybe there were some gems that you could adapt in the new Modern.

The Future of Dark Confidant and Modern Jund

By HansD (2019-07-25)

Midrange decks are built with the metagame in mind and are thus highly customizable. Regardless, even the most customizable of these decks still play core cards that are integral to the deck’s gameplan. Very rarely, in a non-rotating format such as Modern, does a new card come along that displaces the current best-in-slot card for a midrange deck. With the printing of Wrenn and Six in Modern Horizons, I believe that Dark Confidant has found himself as the odd man out after years of being a Jund mainstay.

#CMWhatTheTrend - Spikes on the Horizon

By JaminK (2019-06-27)

Hello and welcome to WhatTheTrend, the column where we will examine current trends on Cardmarket, check out why certain cards are popular and speculate about future price developments. We had a crazy week with many Modern Horizons cards jumping all over the place and we're investigating the cards that got the most attention this week.

Taking a Second Look at Modern Jund

By HansD (2019-06-25)

Modern has changed in the five years I’ve been playing and following it, and some decks that used to be on top of the dogpile have found themselves kicked off their perch. As Modern has become more powerful, aggressive, and linear, many of the fair, interactive decks that reigned supreme have gone the way of the dinosaur. Jund is one of these decks that has been pushed out more and more by the changes in the metagame, but Modern Horizons has brought along a good number of new toys that warrant giving this battered archetype a second chance.

Picky Cube Picks on the Horizon

By SanchoN (2019-06-14)

Aiming to diversify beyond the obvious cube picks from Modern Horizons, this week Sancho attempts to dig a bit deeper to bring you ten card to try out from the set that some have dubbed Commander Masters, but which also has a limited environment akin to cubes.

Modern Horizons Preview (Part 1) - The Most Exciting Cards for Modern

By HansD (2019-06-05)

While the winter holiday season is oftentimes referred to as "the season of giving," the true season of giving has to be spoiler season for any new Magic: The Gathering set. Modern Horizons spoilers haven’t been fully released yet, but just with what we've been given - almost a half of the set - there have already been several cards that have made my eyes pop out with excitement. Whether it's the card's power-level or their build-around potential, I'm quite certain that these cards are going to make a noticeable - if not far-reaching - impact on Modern, and I'm looking forward to diving into discussing them in this week's article.
