Rotation Preparation: Cycling et Cetera in Boros

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-08-25)

Boros was always in this weird spot during the current Standard cycle. Red-white decks usually started off with solid results, only to drop off the map later on. Having avoided the bans and mostly able to avoid the rotation, will these builds get the attention they deserve in the future?

Transmogrify in Standard and Modern

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-07-22)

Polymorph is back in a Standard-legal set, but in a new form. It's now red and exiles a creature rather than destroying it with no possibility of regeneration. That's it. The rest is completely the same. So, what does this mean for the whackier end of deck design in Standard and Modern?

Commander on a Budget: Rith, the Awakener

ConstructedBy RyanS (2020-06-16)

The Ur-Dragon is definitely the ultimate Dragon tribal commander. However, if you are playing on a budget, it's not the only option. Here's how Dragons can be effective, even when they are missing two colors. Check out this Naya Dragon tribal Commander deck led by Rith, the Awakener.

Winota Rider Caught Stealing (Again?)

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-05-28)

To win in today's Standard, there seem to be two rules: you better have a companion, and you also should have a good way of cheating Agents of Treachery into play. However, it appears that just meeting the second condition may be enough. The fastest way to a bargain steal is of course to enlist the help of Winota.

Upgrading Ruthless Regiment on a Budget

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2020-05-15)

Humans? Check. Aristocrats? Check. The Ruthless Regiment preconstructed Commander deck is a great option to play straight out of the box. But it's easy to improve, even on a limited budget. Let's take a look at some affordable and effective upgrades, so that you can better hold your own in your Commander playgroup.

Ikoria Spotlight: Competitive Constructed Companions

SpoilersBy TobiH (2020-04-07)

Ikoria's new ability companion adds a touch of the Commander experience to regular Magic. You can reveal one companion from your sideboard before each game, if your presented deck matches the card's specified restriction, and then cast it from there once during that game. Let's look at implications and decks.

World Championship XXVI: Dreams Do Come True

Event CoverageBy Kumagoro (2020-02-21)

Legendary Brazilian Hall-of-Famer Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa piloted his unforgiving Azorius Control to the fabulous grand prize against Márcio Carvalho in a tense final that had Portuguese as its first language. A victory that puts a highly coveted bow on an extraordinary career.

The Top 16 Standard Decks from Cardmarket Series Paris

Event CoverageBy JohnnyCroat (2020-02-17)

Theros Beyond Death gave us a brand new Standard format. The Top 8 of the Standard main event of Cardmarket Series Paris 2020 already featured a bunch of innovations, and the next eight players in line added even more spice to the mix. Check out their decklists here!

Mythic Championship VII: Cat Out of the Bag

Event CoverageBy Kumagoro (2019-12-13)

The final entry in the Mythic Championship series, as well as the last big professional event of the year, presented a reasonably varied Standard metagame. Though there were more than a few twists as well as a couple notable absentees.

Tribal Attractions: Standard Giants

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2019-12-05)

Our long, collective Oko nightmare is over, and with the Food tyrant out of the picture, now Standard opens up to experimentation once again. No better time than the present to try something big, something new, something Naya, something brewed.

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

Event CoverageBy JohnnyCroat (2019-12-04)

Cardmarket Series Prague featured a brand new Standard format once again. While Oko was out, the oven was still burning with the fire of invention. The Top 8 was low on green and high on Flash decks, but the rest of the Top 16 included lots of Golgari, some Gruul, and all the Beasts and Knights one could wish for …

Jeskai Fires in Post-Oko Standard

ConstructedBy Rone (2019-11-20)

Standard was all about Food decks before the ban of Oko, but one underdog deck was already waiting for its moment to take over. Finally, the time has come for Jeskai Fires of Invention to shine. Join Rone and the Cavaliers and have all your dreams and wishes come true!

Understanding Aggro

ConstructedBy HansD (2019-02-05)

With Mono-Red aggro lighting up the stage in Standard, I want to take a look this week at what makes the aggro archetype tick. By breaking down and examining how these decks are built to be powerful, we can begin to understand why there will almost always be aggressive decks running around any given format!

Common "Mistakes" in Magic You Shouldn't Kick Yourself For

EntertainmentBy HansD (2018-09-18)

Regret selling your Snapcasters for twenty Euros? Missed that game-winning Thragtusk trigger in the Top 8 of a PPTQ? Hans takes a break away from Modern this week to bring you an article about why you shouldn't feel bad about these (and other) common "mistakes" that we've made!

The Ideal Deck: Enduring Ideal in Modern

ConstructedBy JohnnyCroat (2018-03-02)

The B&R announcements are some of the most intense moments of the year for serious Magic players. The early ‘spoiler’ that Ensnaring Bridge was going to face the ban hammer was fake, naturally. Still, Lantern players may look elsewhere for a lock deck, now that Jace and Bloodbraid are free. We’re going to look at one potent Standard lock deck and see if it can be successfully ported into Modern. After all, what's the point of controlling their top decks if they are just going to brainstorm.
