One of the ugliest card arts I've ever seen... Looks like a vanilla swirl. And the mountain too.

The Modern main event of Cardmarket Series Paris this past weekend was the perfect opportunity to witness a fresh metagame in action and in its first steps of evolution. We did see many decks we somewhat didn't expect, not just within the second half of the Top 16, but also among the first half.

Theros Beyond Death Spotlight: Underworld Breach

SpoilersBy ElonThragtusk (2020-01-09)

Some Theros Beyond Death cards already spark discussions, and even outrage. Underworld Breach is reminiscent of Yawgmoth's Will, one of the more broken cards in history. Is it a fixed version or another candidate for the banhammer? Join us as we examine the card's potential in various formats.

Why You Too Should Play European Highlander

ConstructedBy 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.

End of Year Pauper Review

ConstructedBy WileCoyote (2019-12-19)

It's been an amazing year for Pauper. We got bans, we got exciting new cards from various sets across the year, and we got official rules for paper Pauper. Let's review what happened in 2019 and take a look at the current metagame.

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

Event CoverageBy Andifeated (2019-12-03)

Modern is a hotbed of variety and the Cardmarket Series Prague metagame was no different. The Top 16 alone featured 14 different decks and proved again that Modern is the most diverse of all Constructed format. Let's take a closer look at the state of Modern after Throne of Eldraine and Stoneforge Mystic have settled in.

A Look at the Top 16 Legacy Decks from Cardmarket Series Prague

Event CoverageBy CabalTherapy (2019-11-29)

Wrenn and Six got hit by the ban hammer last week, which added extra spice to the Legacy portion of the last stop of the Cardmarket Series 2019. The 248 player strong event showed a pretty diverse and healthy metagame: 14 different archetypes ended up in the Top 16.

Urza Decks in Modern: Whirza, Outcome, and Ascendancy

ConstructedBy Rone (2019-10-28)

After Hogaak Summer we might be entering Urza's Fall. Enabling several combo archetypes, Urza might be the most broken card in Modern right now. Come join Rone as he goes deep into each Urza, Lord High Artificer variant, explaining how each combo works.

It's a Storm's World

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2019-10-10)

Storm clouds have descended upon the Legacy format once again. The archetype won several bigger tournaments in the span of just a couple of weeks. Which metagame factors contributed to the recent rise of Storm Combo, how do we combat the menace, and what comes next?

Bringing Fun Decks to Pauper

ConstructedBy WileCoyote (2019-10-07)

Modern Horizons shook up Modern, it shook up Commander, and Pauper was on the receiving end of some spicy new cards as well. The recent banning of Gush, Daze, and Gitaxian Probe helped the metagame diversify. Now we have the breathing space that will allow new members to shine in the house of commons.

Spicy Decks from Mythic Championship IV

ConstructedBy 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.

Pauper Comes to Paper

ConstructedBy WileCoyote (2019-07-22)

The 27th of June was a historic day for the Pauper format. WotC finally unified Pauper and they made it official! That means sanctioned paper events all over the world. WileCoyote is here to discuss the impact of these changes and the whole slew of new cards that came with them.

Pauper on the Horizon

ConstructedBy WileCoyote (2019-07-02)

Modern Horizons is here and it's looking like it'll shake up pretty much every format it's in, including one of my personal favorites – Pauper. Pauper has recently been the recipient of rather substantial ban of three cards: Gush, Daze and Gitaxian Probe. This has helped diversify the metagame quite a bit, significantly reducing blue's Stranglehold on the format. With this breathing room, Modern Horizons has an even greater opportunity to shine a light on new decks and cards.

Storming Off in Prague

Event CoverageBy Andifeated (2018-09-06)

Dangerous Propositions: Seething Song

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-07-13)

Where would Magic be without the wonders of Counterspells, timing, priority and all the subtleties that come with the ability to tap an Island.
