Standard Is Fun Again // Making Mythic with Golgari Legends
It only took three more cards getting banned from Standard. Making a lot of three-for-one trades and the occasional five-for-one was getting old fast. Now we're back to comparatively fair Magic, trading cards with our opponents two for one at a time, and that's a much more enjoyable experience.
Motifs and Mechanics: The Themes of Zendikar So Far
This September, Magic is making its third stop on the plane of Zendikar. What can we learn from our two previous trips? Which mechanics did the cards exhibit in those two blocks, the original Zendikar and later Battle for Zendikar? Let's take inventory of the themes Zendikar Rising may revisit.
A Photo Worth a Thousand Words
Let's celebrate World Photography Day with a look at some of our fondest memories from events, as captured in pictures. If you share yours, you can win some cool swag from Ultra PRO that will come in handy once tournaments start up again. Our resident photographer goes first and shows off some of his work.
Cleaning Up After the Birthday Banquet
It's just like a turn in a game of Magic: after the party comes the clean-up. All the food was eaten and all the drinks were drunk. Now's the time to unveil all the awesome art that we used in our contest last week and to give credit where credit is due. This of course includes our winners.
Art Trivia Contest: The Birthday Banquet
