Bant Commander Review: Part 2

Hey gang, I'm back this week with the continuation of my review of every Bant card in Magic. This review takes into account the card's playability in Commander, and all cards must be ALL THREE colours. Bant is my favourite of the three colour combos, and it's easy to see why. There are a lot of great cards here for EDH, so let's get to it! A quick reminder of how this will work: We're looking...

Daily Dose of Hour of Devastation – Re-Cycling old Mechanics

Welcome, welcome, welcome to a new edition of the Daily Dose of Hour of Devastation as we finish up week one of preview season. This week I’ve talked about some of the new mechanics in Hour of Devastation, but today I want to talk about some returning mechanics. During two and three set blocks, one of the ways that sets have a continuity is by using the same mechanics throughout the block....

Going for the Gold: Leaving a Legacy with Grixis Delver in Vegas (6th)

Before we even get into today's article, just in case you missed the title.... I finally secured my second Grand Prix Top 8 in my Magic career at GP Vegas, in Legacy! Not only that, but this finish allowed me to lock up Gold for the second consecutive year in a row, and made it so that I no longer need any more tournament results. Man, does that feel nice! This Top 8 feels like it has been such a...

Daily Dose of Hour of Devastation – Nicol Bolas’ Minions

Welcome all to the Daily Dose of Hour of Devastation, where I’ve been talking about some of the hot new cards from the upcoming set. So far, I’ve seen new mechanics and some hate cards, but today I’m switching my focus to some sweet new Gods from Hour of Devastation. In Amonkhet, we saw the emergence of the five Gods, one from each colour. These gods had inflated power and toughness for...

Fear and Lifelink in Las Vegas: A Legacy Grand Prix Report

We were somewhere in round five on the edge of the tournament when the caffeine began to take hold. I remember saying something like, “I lost the die roll; maybe you should start first…” And suddenly there was a terrible presence all around us and the sky was full of what looked like a giant jellyfish, tentacles swooping and flashing around the True-Name Nemesis, which could only hit for...

How to Succeed in Modern Without Really Trying (Part 2)

Waking up to 100 degree weather at 6:30am, I wiped the sweat from my brow, took a shower, and headed down to a free breakfast with Ben Coursey. While not quite as nice as the free breakfast buffet Mike comped us the day before, anytime you can get a free meal is a really good feeling, especially in a city where $20 barely gets you one! We headed over to the site a little early, which was lucky...

How to Succeed in Modern Without Really Trying (Part 1)

My name is Nick Desmarais and this is my first article here on MTGCanada! If you’ve played any GP events in the past few months in either Europe or North America, it’s very likely you’ve seen me battling it out in Day Two or playing Legacy side events. The Modern Grand Prix held this past weekend in Las Vegas was the second-largest Modern constructed event on record and, due to its size,...

Daily Dose of Hour of Devastation – Time to Eternalize the Joy

Welcome all to the first preview week here on the Daily Dose of Hour of Devastation! The week started off well, with a look at some new cards coming to us on July 14th, or even a little earlier at the prerelease. One of the first things I look for in a new set is which new mechanics will be introduced, and what mechanics will return. There are evergreen mechanics that we see in every set, such as...
