Going for the Gold: Grand Prix Milwaukee Recap

If you missed my Kaladesh limited format re-review last week, please click here. Our trip to Milwaukee started on Friday when we all met in Kitchener, Ontario and traveled for a “short” 8 hour trip. I got to sleep in later than my friends on Saturday morning, oh the joy of three byes! On these magic trips, I take a bunch of protein shakes and bars with me to have for breakfast. After...

10 Cards that should be in Modern

Howdy Budget Lovers! This week, sadly, I'm not bringing you a Budget Brew decklist where we try to make jank semi-playable. Fret not though! Next week we'll be back with your regular program.

Monday Night Magic at The Murderdome: Bangmander!

I play regularly with a group of friends, usually Monday evenings. We play different formats, including Commander, Modern, and various draft styles with a Cube we have that is continually evolving.

When our Magic games are grinding and stretching on, we like to...

The deck was very aggressive and could lead to some fast games, and had the ability to play a control matchup if needed.

1-Drop Creatures for Commander: Green

Commander is definitely a big mana format of Magic. I don't want to speak for everyone but I feel like big, flashy spells are really the reason a lot of us play the format. You won't see being played in Standard or Modern, so players who want to cast spells for free at the cost of a do-nothing 7 mana enchantment need a place to go. This often means that cards with a lower, more efficient mana...

Beginner's guide to surviving against competitive Commander decks

Commander is enjoyed by the competitive, the casual and everyone in between. Because of the social nature of the format, these player bases run into each other often which leads to some unfun games. In this article, I will suggest how, as a casual player, you can slow down competitive decks with a few key cards. I will focus on less expensive cards (<$10), but also mention some of the staples...

Going for the Gold: Kaladesh Limited Redux

With the upcoming Grand Prix in Milwaukee, I thought it would be a good idea to revisit the Kaladesh limited format and update it now that we have a few more months of information at our fingertips. Here are 10 things that you need to understand about the sealed format: This is a 16 land format. If you play more, you are most likely wrong, unless you have at least 2 cards that do something with...
