Going for the Gold: Play Along with Sammy #2 (GP Indy 2017 – Part 1)

Hey Wizard's Tower fans! This week we’re back to analyzing Magic feature matches. It’s one thing to talk about Magic in a contextual frame, but it’s another to analyze a match and break down each of the decisions as they happen. Last time I did this with Grand Prix Vegas 2017: Legacy, I received a lot of positive feedback. So going forward, I'm going to publish an article to accompany every...

To Kill a Death's Shadow: Winning Modern

When Mike was nearly at thirteen, the Death's Shadow looked barely broken as a card. When his life total plummeted, and Mike's fears of never being able to play the Death's Shadow were assuaged, he gleefully summoned forth the cheap creature. His Gurmag Angler was somewhat smaller than the Death's Shadow, the closer to zero his life total became, and other times his Snapcaster Mage was larger...

Daily Dose of Ixalan – Exploring new mechanics

Welcome all to another edition of the Daily Dose of Ixalan, where today I’ll be talking about one of the new mechanics from Ixalan. One of the first things that I want to see when a new set releases is what mechanics will be in the set. Will there be any returning mechanics? Will there only be new mechanics? How will these mechanics interact with existing cards and other mechanics in the...

Horse Control

We all know that guy at our LGS who latches on to an obscure subtype or archetype and just barrels down. With Ixalan around the corner, don't expect those guys to go anywhere. Every tribe, no matter how obscure, gains something from so many of the new Ixalan cards, either in the form of new cards that actually belong to the archetype - such as Shamans, Druids, Clerics, and Scouts - or just by...

Daily Dose of Ixalan – Treasure for everyone!

Welcome all to the Daily Dose of Ixalan, where today I’m going to be talking about a new token from Ixalan. For years and years, we only had creature tokens, but this streak was broken with the Token from Born of the Gods. These were only created by two cards though, and . A few years later we got the Token created by . This was another non-creature token, but one that was only used by one...

Daily Dose of Ixalan – Anger Management w/Dinosaurs

Welcome all to the Daily Dose of Ixalan, where today I’ll be talking about a new mechanic from Ixalan that has everyone in a huff. Okay, not really, but it has made for some angry Dinosaurs. New mechanics are always fun to me because they get my creative juices flowing. I start to think about what interactions can happen between that mechanic and other cards from the set. Then I start to think...

Brewing With Ixalan - Ju(nd)rassic Park

Okay, yes, it's a bad pun - but somebody had to be the first one to make it. Or at least the first to take credit for it on a public forum. Hurray for the internet! But in all seriousness, let's talk Jund. As I'm sure veteran players are sick to death of hearing by now, 'Jund' gets its name from the red, black, and green shard of the plane of Alara, and it was a massively popular archetype...
