A Farewell to Standard - Prowess Fever

When I think about the deck my opponent is playing, I typically tend to describe it in one of two ways  - 'fun to play against', or 'not fun to play against'. In this week's Farewell to Standard, we're going to take the time to say good-bye to a deck that is rarely fun to play against - UR Prowess. Prowess is an interesting mechanic. In essence, it gives any creatures that have it +1/+1 until...

Daily Dose of Ixalan – Double-Faced Cards Part 1 – Follow the path to Lands

Welcome all to the Daily Dose of Ixalan, where today I’m going to be talking about the exciting return of Double-Faced Cards! I am a huge fan of Double-Faced Cards. When I found out months ago that they were releasing a double-sided Playmat for Ixalan, I had a feeling Double-Faced Cards would make a return. The only other double-sided playmats released were made for and , so I was hopeful....

Brewing with Ixalan - Primal Rage

is back, this time in the form of . Did I specifically combine it with Enrage cards so that I could make a deck called 'Primal Rage' full of dinosaurs and fiery death? Yes, yes I did. All that aside, does it have a chance as an archetype once Ixalan hits? I definitely think so. Do you remember the Primal Rage video game from the 90's? I sure do. It's a classic fighting game where players choose...

Jund Commander Review Part 1

Continuing on this week with the three-colour card review is Jund. A land of extremes, Jund has much synergy and many different play styles. Jund loves to have goblins as much as dragons, and knows how to handle “going wide” and Voltron strategies. That it's a well balanced shard of the colour pie is one explanation of this, and the other is that there's just great card design for Jund in...
