About:

When I first started playing Magic, I hated blue. A friend and I picked up Magic: The Gathering in the summer of '94, and my first deck was a Revised 60-card starter deck with only two Islands. This made it almost impossible to cast Phantasmal Terrain, and turn one of my friend's lands into an Island and attack with my biggest creature, a 5/5 Sea Serpent with Islandhome.

A few additional starter decks and a several Islands later, it all changed when I discovered my one true love in the world of Magic. It was a blue card with an odd illustration of a clown and a jackal-headed person on a seesaw with a text box beginning with seven words that would drive my friends crazy for years to come: "Players do not get an untap phase."

At that moment, when I first laid eyes on the beautiful blue enchantment, Stasis, a Johnny was born. Since then, Magic for me was not just about winning, but about winning in silly, annoying, and janky ways — preferably using blue spells.

Newly returned after nearly 20 years away from the wonderful world of Magic: The Gathering, I am thrilled to explore the new formats and the thousands of cards I have missed out on, and I look forward to sharing my journey of rediscovery with the readers of Cardmarket Insight.

Forgotten Heroes: Benalish Hero

de SanchoN (2019-01-10)

The clerics who wrote the Benalish history books were clearly kissing up to the knights leaving out the part of the narrative concerned with the common people. Challenging the Great Man Theory with some historie vue d'en bas et non d'en haut, Sancho tries to give a voice to the disenfranchised Benalish Hero.
