Budget Brew Mill

Howdy Budget Brewers! It's that time of the week for us to take a gander at some of the more budget options we can play at our local FNM's. While our main goal is ultimately to just have some fun, it's all gravy if we're able to win some matches as well. It's true, janky combo's are my bread and butter but I've been known to sprinkle in a dash of control or a smidgen of aggro. Then, sometimes a...

Partners Without a Partner - Silas Renn

In this, the third instalment in my Partners Without a Partner series, we tackle ! If this is your first exposure to the series, here's how it works: We're brewing one half-deck for a partner in each colour pair. There will be ten in total, and anyone could mash up any two of these lists, add our six staple colourless cards set aside for each deck, and have a playable 100! is all about...

Going for the Gold: Racing with RB Aggro – 20th at PT Aether Revolt

My journey to Pro Tour Aether Revolt actually started at Grand Prix Prague, which was a big enough experience that I will be dedicating my own article to it. Jamie Archdekin and I left Prague on Tuesday and wound up staying at the “Platinum Hotel”, the hotel that Wizards of the Coast allocates for all of their platinum players. For this Pro Tour we had a massive testing team, and shared most...

Going Rogue: Big Monkey Zoo

Hello and welcome back to Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal but it often happens anyway. It's no secret that I prioritize the flashy over the reliable. I find winning with style to be so much more satisfying than winning consistently - I like card selection, flicker effects, and stack shenanigans, and apparently advocate for blue in 73% of my published brews. But sometimes - just...

1 Drop Creatures for Commander: Red

This week we carry on the series of 1 CMC creatures for Commander with the colour with the biggest roster of one drops, Red. Other formats, whether the be constructed or limited love an efficient one drop red creature. Aggressive 1 CMC creatures can make or break an entire deck sometimes and can be powerful enough to impact the strongest of formats. Just look at in Standard and Vintage or in...

Going for the Gold: The Best Deck in Standard

It's been a long time since I wrote an article but before the drop of the new Standard format at Pro Tour Aether Reborn, I wanted to bring you some hot of the press news. There is only one really good deck in Standard, and it revolves our newest planeswalker friend, Saheeli Rai. Over the past couple weeks, and her favourite cat () have been tearing it up across Standard whether it was Jeskai...

Tezzeret the Schemer

Aether Revolt now appears to be a truly revolutionizing set in terms of deck construction and synergy. Before the Standard banned list came out, many of the previewed cards in the set appeared innocuous to me. I didn’t see any strong hate cards like or that could solve much of the staleness in the format and I was let down in my hopes that an instant speed removal spell for planeswalkers...
