ConstructedBy Andifeated (2020-04-22)

The Other 99: Board Wipes

ConstructedBy RJGiel (2020-03-24)

Commander is the format of big boards and, consequently, the most massive mass removal applications. No other format rewards you for resetting the battlefield as much as Commander, and every deck should run at least a couple of board wipes. But which ones are the best? What qualities should you look out for?

Theros Beyond Death Cube Picks

LimitedBy SanchoN (2020-02-11)

Maintaining a cube is a Sisyphean task starting over with each new set. But we neither see that as a great tragedy nor react stoically aloof just because the power level of Theros Beyond Death does not tower above Mount Olympus. A Dionysian frenzy ended with ten favorites.

ConstructedBy Ratix (2020-01-29)

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.

After going through CA and tiebreakers, let's work on a notion that isn't properly defined: tempo.

Premodern: Why Is It Becoming Popular and Where Is It Headed

ConstructedBy Elric (2018-09-25)

Hochstapler – Bavarian Highlander

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2018-08-10)

Highlander might be the most popular way to build casual decks and enjoy Magic in a non-tournament environment. There are many ways to play Highlander and while Elder Dragon Highlander (AKA Commander) might be the most popular by far, there are many more ways to build singleton decks and have fun at the kitchen or bar table. Andifeated is here to show you a bavarian variant of Highlander – or as they call it in southern Germany “Hochstapler”.

Beating Your Opponents Down with Green-Black Elves

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-07-31)

During a conversation last week, my friend Stefan asked me if I would be interested in playing in a large Modern tournament the following week. He has a large collection of Modern staples, which he offered to lend if there was a deck I wanted to play in particular. He had decided on playing Grixis Shadow for the tournament, and I picked up Black-Green Elves. Here's the deck list for my 75.

Looking at GP Barcelona and the Post-Tournament Metagame

Event CoverageBy HansD (2018-07-09)

Isn't Modern great? Non-interactive decks like KCI and Tron run roughshod over the metagame, and in one weekend, we get five UW Control decks that top sixteen a Modern GP. It's a wild, wild world, and I want to take a quick look at how the direction of the format provided a window of opportunity for the control archetype, how the UW decks took advantage of the opportunity, and what this will mean for the metagame going forward. Let's jump right in!

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.

Get into the Gruul

LimitedBy SanchoN (2018-06-28)

What should Green-Red do in your cube? Sometimes when constructing a limited environment for drafting Magic it is worth giving the obvious choice a try. And since the dawn of Magic the guild known as Gruul has proven quite good at producing lots of mana and casting very big spells with a casting cost of X.

Azorius in Cube: Blinking the All-Seeing Eye

LimitedBy SanchoN (2018-06-06)

Blinking, flickering and sliding are some of the names given to the effect of removing a permanent from the battlefield only to return it to play immediately or at the end of turn. This seemingly odd effect is at the core of a tried and tested cube archetype for Blue and White. In this installment of Cubes for squares you will learn the basic tricks associated with blinking and get some inspiration for implementing blink in your own limited environment.

When to Play or Draw in Limited

LimitedBy Toffel (2018-05-29)

Considering this choice doesn’t come up too often, but it is easy to overlook the right choice out of pure habit. You might, like so many, just play first by default, but there are some key factors that make playing second the right decision in many situations, especially in Sealed.

5 Dragons You Might Meet on the Battlefield

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2018-03-23)

Dracarys! Despite their typical casting cost being midrange and beyond, Dragons always find a way to show up in decks of all kinds. Their current situation across the formats is not too shabby, and not just in red-based builds. Here’s a selection of the flying terrors all the cool kids are playing.

BW Soul Sisters: No Grey Areas

ConstructedBy JohnnyCroat (2018-02-08)

Modern is a wonderfully vibrant format currently, with each new set seeing new decks and archetype variants getting more than a few plays online. Pro Tour Rivals of Ixalan saw 5 Colour Humans as its most popular deck, with two such builds making it as far as the Top 8. But, once upon a time, there was a popular mono-White Humans deck: Soul Sisters. Does this deck still have legs? Or has its time passed?
