Event CoverageBy Dr-Exhume (2020-02-26)

Playing Unpowered Vintage Jund at Eternal Weekend

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2020-01-15)

ConstructedBy Rone (2019-12-20)

Dangerous Propositions: Green Sun's Zenith

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-06-14)

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 is free, anything can happen.

Event CoverageBy CabalTherapy (2018-05-28)

Legacy at MKM Series Hamburg was a special one. Not only does it feature only a single blue deck in a rather unusual Top 8, but it also could signify a true turning point for the Legacy format on the whole.

Event CoverageBy Rone (2018-03-19)

The Magic Grand Prix is the perfect excuse to spend a whole weekend enjoying our favorite hobby.
