I never player this expansion but, seems a great card for when you miss a land drop, and even if you dont, you get a 2/2 on the table.

Legacy Treasures: Dragon Stompy

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2019-11-08)

A Faithless Looting Eulogy, Part 2: In Memoriam

ConstructedBy 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!

Soldevi Surveyor: Planar Chaos

EntertainmentBy SanchoN (2019-07-08)

Eccentric looking cards. Effects not in the colors you would expect to find them in. And rumors of a sixth color of Magic. In this first installment of our new series Soldevi Surveyor, Sancho digs into a time of confusion and disorder as he unearths the incredible expansion known as Planar Chaos.

#TwitterBuildsModern Episode Two: The Drudge of Dredge!

EntertainmentBy JohnnyCroat (2019-03-29)

Graveyard decks come in many shapes and sizes. There's Living End, which is usually brought back out for a spin every time some new cool ETB effects get printed. UB Storm is in effect a graveyard deck, relying on Past in Flames in order to be able to recycle a big heap of cheap cantrips so as to generate massive card advantage and storm count. There's Dredge itself, happy to dump as many cards into the bin as possible, and then cheating several itty bitty bothersome monsters into play, which have a tendency to come back turn after turn after turn. So then, how does this relate to Maze's End? Read on!

Tribal Attractions: The Spirit of Christmas

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-12-19)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas tribal! What's better to get in a proper festive spirit than to actually build a Spirit deck? One that will be dreaming of a white and red-nosed finisher and where green grows the lifegaining mistletoe.

Dangerous Propositions: Hypergenesis

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-10-17)

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 has been released, anything can happen. Let's review each of those offenders to see if they're eligible for parole. This time we talk of the ultimate green cheater.

Eyeing the Post-Modern Landscape

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-10-08)

With the release of Magic Arena's Open Beta this past week, Hans wonders what will happen to a format after Modern. What will it look like and when will it come out? Come join the speculation in this week's article!

Tribal Attractions: Dragons

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-08-31)

With its strict, four-faction setting, Ixalan has been a very tribal block, and then Dominaria doubled down with some tribal focus of its own. Time for Kumagoro to have fun with Modern-legal concoctions for some less obvious tribes. In this installment: the most iconic of the iconic tribes.

Fighting the Good Fight: Liliana of the Veil

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-07-26)

Modern is filled to the brim with powerful cards, so it's natural that we want to figure out how to stop our opponents from utilizing them as a part of their arsenal. In this article, I'm going to go over what makes [Liliana of the Veil] so powerful, and then I'll present the macro and micro decisions you can make to combat her. Without further ado, let's dive right in!

Inner Workings: Ad Nauseam

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-07-18)

In each installment of the Inner Workings series, we'll examine a different Modern archetype to find out what makes it tick. This time, it's the turn of Ad Nauseam, the only combo deck in Modern to abuse a card also commonly seen in Legacy to create a flashier play.

Tribal Attractions: Sphinges

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-06-08)

With its strict, four-faction setting, Ixalan has been a very tribal block, and then Dominaria doubled down with some tribal focus of its own. Time for Kumagoro to have fun with Modern-legal concoctions for some less obvious tribes, starting from the riddling terrors of blue skies.

Budget Decks to Get into Modern

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-05-16)

Modern can be pricey, and it’s not easy to figure out the right way to find an entry point into the format. While there’s plenty of resources about the topic on the Internet, I wanted to write this article to give a perspective about the topic of getting into Modern on a budget as another resource for those of you that find yourself in this position. I hope that you’ll find it helpful as you begin your Modern journey!

Choose Their Poison: The Collective Brutality Story

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-04-11)

Modal spells - everyone's favorite way to pack a bigger bang for your buck while dealing with the inherent available slot restrictions in 60-card decks. The best of such cards were frequently chase rares in the past and Collective Brutality is no exception; let’s choose to see why.

GP Madrid Aftermath: A Weekend Full of Magic

Event CoverageBy Rone (2018-03-19)

The Magic Grand Prix is the perfect excuse to spend a whole weekend enjoying our favorite hobby. Normally, the main event is what attracts most players’ attention – its coverage, Top 8 decklists, and of course, the GP winners. But there are many other things that one can have a go at aside from the competition.

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.

Take your Chance

FinanceBy DrHoeh (2016-10-23)

Winning a large tournament always draws players' interest, but when the deck lists are well-known stock lists there isn't much financial impact.
