Hey, everyone! This weekend, Star City Games hosted an Open Series in Atlanta and Channel Fireball hosted the Weekend #3 World Magic Cup Qualifier.

Hey there, all. I’m Markus, a long-time submitter on the /r/mtgfinance subreddit under the username drakeblood4. I’ve decided to go from submitting my articles for imaginary internet points to submitting them for slightly less imaginary exchange of goods and services points. Outside of the time I spend doing a mediocre job using high-school level math …

Grinder Finance: Khans of Tarkir #1

Now is the time to consider your options and look into preordering cards from the newest fall expansion, Khans of Tarkir.

Prizes are determined based on the number of matches you survived before losing. In …

Gen Con Drafting

Gen Con, where every game that doesn’t require electricity is located.
