Four Shades of Blue: Asserting Control

By Skura (2022-04-17)

Control is widely associated with the color blue—and for good reasons. Whether it's countermagic or card draw, blue gets the most and the best such spells.

Pioneer's Prismari Torrent

By Kumagoro (2021-05-25)

Pioneer loves aggro. Aside from a few build-around pieces that lend themselves to more control-oriented lists, like Fires of Invention or Niv-Mizzet Reborn, its pool tends to skew toward creature-based strategies. But that's just one reason more to go against the grain with the help of new tech from Strixhaven.

Strixhaven Spotlight: Powerful Prismari Projects

By ElonThragtusk (2021-04-08)

Control Decks in Post-Ban Modern

By Skura (2021-02-25)

By RyanS (2021-02-16)

Move over, Mistform Ultimus! Orvar, the All-Form is here to replace you as the ultimate Shapeshifter commander. Unlike other Shapeshifters who can become copies of other permanents, Orvar plays more like a spellslinging commander with the added benefit of creating tokens—a unique design space.

Playmat Icons: Sphinxes

By Kumagoro (2021-01-21)

When they're not eating those who fail to solve their puzzle challenges, Sphinxes incarnate blue's card advantage in the shape of evasive finishers.

Turning the Corner with Control Decks

By Skura (2020-10-05)

Any given game of Magic eventually has to end. Every player wants to be on the side of the one killing and not the one being killed. However, it becomes very tricky when your deck is ill-equipped to actually finish the game. Today, let's talk about closing the game with control decks.

Field of the Dead in Modern

By Skura (2020-09-22)

Field of the Dead has been terrorizing a bunch of different formats in Magic over the past year, and it got itself banned from several.

BUG Control in Modern

By Skura (2020-08-13)

Following the ban of Arcum's Astrolabe from Modern, control players have to rediscover the archetype and readjust to the new environment. "Skurtai Control" is waiting in the wings to take over, quite likely the best successor to the previously dominating snow control value machines.

An Ultimatum to the Meta

By Kumagoro (2020-06-09)

Standard has been weird for a while. Overpowered cards and mechanics have given birth to a number of top decks, whose diversity never mitigated their marked superiority. Now bans and the companion nerf have reset the field, but the dust hasn't settled yet, so it might be the best time to try something fun!

The Enlightenment of Narset

By Kumagoro (2020-05-27)

With her Ikorian incarnation, Narset, the set's third planeswalker, has come full circle, regaining all the colors of the Jeskai Way. What does this entail for the neuro-atypical kung-fu heroine? More importantly, what does it mean for the control decks that choose to embrace her Triome?

The Rise of Lukka

By Kumagoro (2020-05-07)

Ikoria had a big impact on Standard, inspiring a number of spicy brews. Cycling decks, mutate synergies, and the radical innovation of the companions are all front and center in the conversation, eclipsing the role of the three new planeswalkers. But at least one of them is already making strides to the top.

Yorion, a Nomad Mad for Standard

By BrentT (2020-04-30)

By TobiH (2020-04-07)

Ikoria's new ability companion adds a touch of the Commander experience to regular Magic.
