The Rise of Lukka

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2020-05-07)

Ikoria had a big impact on Standard, inspiring a number of spicy brews. Cycling decks, mutate synergies, and the radical innovation of the companions are all front and center in the conversation, eclipsing the role of the three new planeswalkers. But at least one of them is already making strides to the top.

Pioneer at Cardmarket Series Prague

Event CoverageBy TobiH (2019-12-06)

Pioneer wasn't one of the big headliners in Prague, and the event's turnout wasn't big either. The format also experienced another round of bannings since. Nevertheless, the results call into question some previous assumptions. In particular, control fared much better than expected.

Taking a Second Look at Modern Jund

ConstructedBy HansD (2019-06-25)

Modern has changed in the five years I’ve been playing and following it, and some decks that used to be on top of the dogpile have found themselves kicked off their perch. As Modern has become more powerful, aggressive, and linear, many of the fair, interactive decks that reigned supreme have gone the way of the dinosaur. Jund is one of these decks that has been pushed out more and more by the changes in the metagame, but Modern Horizons has brought along a good number of new toys that warrant giving this battered archetype a second chance.

Five Reasons to Play Tron In Modern

ConstructedBy ChristopherB (2019-02-07)

Tron is one of the most polarizing decks in Modern. Player either love (and play) this deck or hate it. But is Tron well positioned in the meta right now? I believe so and I will tell you why 1+1+1=7 is so good.

Grinding You Down

EntertainmentBy SanchoN (2018-10-31)

Admitting that mill is not a strategy for winners but still unable to let it go, Sancho spends this week's article milling somewhat aimlessly about just enjoying the pretty mill cards and musing about the eternal what if, that lures hordes of Johnnies to hunt for a deck which will deck any opposition consistently.

Storming Off in Prague

Event CoverageBy Andifeated (2018-09-06)

The Modern Metagame is in a constant state of change these days. A few months ago, Andifeated thought his pet deck U/R Gifts Storm has been pushed out of the top decks because of an abysmal Humans matchup, but the tides have changed again. Follow him through his deck choice process and tournament for Grand Prix Prague.

Fighting the Good Fight - Snapcaster Mage

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-08-28)

Welcome to another edition of "Fighting the Good Fight," and this past weekend's GP results couldn't have come at a better time for today's discussion of the best blue card in Modern: Snapcaster Mage. Snapcaster has been a mainstay in Modern since the format's very start, but with how well UW Control fared, we're expecting this wizard to be even more prevalent than usual. In that case, it's doubly important that we know how we can fight against one of Modern's most powerful cards!

Grand Prix Barcelona Tournament Report - Choosing a Modern Deck

Event CoverageBy Andifeated (2018-07-05)

In formats as old, diverse, and full of different viable strategies as Modern, one does not need to choose a deck based on the current metagame. Most competitive decks you may face only achieve about 3% meta-share, leading to almost unpredictable pairings, giving players who try to get an advantage by making smart deck choices and choosing strategies that are well placed against popular decks a hard time. This time though, it was a different story.

Modern Myths: Debunking the Format's Biggest Misconceptions

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-05-09)

Modern has a lot of things said about it, and I want to tackle in this week's article a few that I find to be myths about the format. I'm calling these four "Modern Myths," and I hope that bringing up these topics will spark a discussion. Do you think you'll agree with these points? Let's dive in and start off with the first one.
