No Time to Waste – Brewing for Oath of the Gatewatch Standard

The spoilers are out.  All of them. The complete card list for Oath of the Gatewatch was finally released just a few days ago. A lot of cards caught my eye. A devoid, conditional Rampant Growth variant looks to push the ramp decks’ abilities to get their game plan rolling faster than ever, despite putting heavy …

Gruul Blitz – The Most Underrated Deck in Modern

First off, a belated happy holidays and a happy New Year to everyone!  As I mentioned in my previous article about the Modern ban list, I have spent the limited amount of time I’ve had to enjoy Magic: The Gathering testing different brews in Modern.  Lately I’ve been going off the deep end trying to make …

To Ban or Unban?

It has been a while since I’ve contributed to the site and I’ve missed writing, missed seeing your comments, missed feeling like I’ve contributed to the community that I so enjoy being a part of.  Due to some personal commitments, I haven’t been as active a participant in the current Standard season, though I have …

That said, there is one card …

Even though Pro Tour Magic Origins is still fresh in our minds and we are currently looking at a new Standard format, I want to look forward to what I think could be some powerful shells after rotation.  It may be premature, but there may be financial opportunity and a way to get ahead of the metagame …

Mono White Tokens – A Whirlwind Weekend

Deckbuilding is a passion of mine.  Over the past couple of years, I’ve found the formula that best suits my style when creating a new deck.  I analyze my brews and the card selections within along three axes:  power level, synergy, consistency.  If those three components of a deck are sound, the deck in question often …

Can Mono White Get There After Pro Tour Magic Origins?

So this is my first article.  None of you readers will know me from anything I’ve done previously.  I’m not a top level professional magic player, not a known deck designer or content producer.  None of you have even seen my Magic Online username posted on Daily Event results (mostly because I’m broke and choose …
