About:

I started playing Magic in 1994, and I'm still in the game despite trying to leave it multiple times. I participated in a lot of tournaments back then and got some good results, but I'm too lazy to list them down. For merely affective and fun reasons, I largely prefer the old cards both as a player and as a collector, but I've played basically every format in the game.

I'm a kind of Jolly Joker (with the face of a Jester's Cap) being a collector, player, commentator, and writer. I'm passionate about Magic and all its aspects.

I will try to bring a little humor with a historical and classic point of view in my articles.

As American author Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. once said, "All persons, living or dead, are purely coincidental, and should not be construed.

By Elric (2019-03-13)

The card Chaos Orb is a true icon in MTG, but it's banned in every WotC format because of the dexterity required to use it. The introduction of the 93/94 and Alpha 40 formats, however, has led to a resurgence of the "flipping mania" meta.

Commander 1v1: Life After Wizards?

By Elric (2019-02-25)

WotC supported Commander 1v1 for a meager nine months. Now, the community is left without a clear vision of where the format is headed. But Commander has always been a fun format and always will be, so players should be determined to forge ahead with or without Wizards. Pietro is here to let you know where he thinks the format is headed.

Will Vintage Players Survive Survival Aggro

By Elric (2019-01-21)

A combination of Bazaar of Baghdad and Survival of the Fittest with the raw power of Hollow Ones and Vengevines has given birth to a new aggro deck that may be funny to play but is very consistent.
