Field of the Dead in Modern

ConstructedBy 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. Recently, to the surprise of many, it has also had an increasingly meaningful impact on Modern. Let's explore the various Field shells that currently populate the format.

How to Sideboard with Control Decks

ConstructedBy Skura (2020-06-24)

In Magic, you play up to two thirds of all games postboard. If you want to win at Magic, it's imperative for you to be proficient at sideboarding. This article focuses on one archetype which the author is known to have mastered. Let's take a deep look at your control deck's fifteen, how to pick and how to use them.

Yorion, Sky Nomad Rises in Modern

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-05-25)

"Come slide down rainbows in the sky, let's fly away. Like a bird, you're free to see the boundless face of the earth. Let the wind blow you like a kite and glide away." This is what it feels like to try Yorion in Modern, where the sky is the limit and all your wishes come true by playing an 80-card deck.

Event CoverageBy CabalTherapy (2020-02-18)

At the most recent Legacy main event of the Cardmarket Series, 154 players fought through eight rounds. Various flavors of Delver decks topped the metagame charts, with all-time favorites Death and Taxes and Miracles as runner-ups. But how did things play out in the Top 16 section?

Event CoverageBy ElonThragtusk (2020-02-13)

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: Heliod Combo

SpoilersBy Rone (2020-01-09)

Time for some sweet New Year's spoilers from Theros Beyond Death. In today's article, Rone goes deep into the latest infinite combo involving Walking Ballista and Heliod, Sun-Crowned. Powerful in Modern and possibly ban-worthy in Pioneer, it's the Splinter Twin of the new decade!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lessons Learned at Cardmarket Series Frankfurt

Event CoverageBy Andifeated (2019-08-09)

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.

Behind the Tag - Deck Stories Part 1

EntertainmentBy ChristopherB (2018-12-13)

Nowadays, most new decks have reasonable names like "Izzet Phoenix" or "Golgari Midrange," which more or less describes what the decks do/contain. But what about deck names from days gone by? Where does "the Rock" come from? What does "Death and Taxes" have to do with a white weenie deck? This is a series meant to discuss, briefly, the history behind these names.

Event CoverageBy CabalTherapy (2018-08-15)

The team Pro Tour 25 in Minneapolis featured Legacy and many players had feared drastic changes to the format once the pros start working on decks.

In the following, I present my top three conclusions from the Pro Tour and how they will affect the near future of Legacy.

ConstructedBy Rone (2018-01-31)

Starting over in Magic is always difficult, especially Eternal formats where there is no rotation, and card staples tend to be expensive. Fortunately, there are some budget archetypes that allow you to start playing Modern and then evolve into a tier deck. Today, we are going to break down some mono color decks for Modern.
