Going for the Gold: Dominaria Standard

Welcome back to Going for the Gold! It's been a while since I've delved into the state of Standard so I figured now was as good a time as any. Of course, with the upcoming Pro Tour and team Grand Prix I would be remiss to share any of my brews. However, I can definitely discuss the current state of the Magic Online metagame, which is usually a great predictor for the upcoming tournaments. It...

The best Zombie-tribal Commanders

Some great tribes have come and gone throughout Magic's history. Soldiers, squirrels, homunculi... you name it, we've seen it. Starting with this article I'll look at the best commanders for the EDH tribes we know and love. Starting with the blackest of the black tribes, the walking dead... ZOMBIES! If you're not looking for an actual zombie to head up your zombie-themed deck, are a solid two...

The Modern Rogue Report - We've Got Spirits, Yes We Do...

Spirits are black, spirits are blue; Spirits are green, white, and red too! Welcome back for the 19th instalment of The Rogue Report! I'm Cody and for a while now I've been interested in playing spirits in Modern. I didn't want to just take a stock list and play it though, I wanted to use the effort to experiment with the archetype and work on my deck-building. My original attempt was very...

Lich's Approach

This week we have a deck that started life as a rouge brew and has become my go to deck for Standard: Lich’s Approach This is the centrepiece of the entire deck. We cast with a on board. This allows us to put Approach seventh from the top, then draw seven cards. So we win the following turn. It’s from this point that we start to build the deck. The first problem I encountered is that pure...

Going for the Gold: Team Limited in Columbus (27th)

Welcome back to Going for the Gold! The last weekend of April was the first set of team limited Grand Prix in Dominaria. Either Grand Prix Columbus or Grand Prix Bologna, depending on which side of the world you are on. And it was quite a showing. So many great teams showed up to transform eight Dominaria boosters into three playable limited decks complete with sideboards. Since I haven't played...

Going for the Gold: Dominaria Archetypes

Welcome back to Going for the Gold! I'm actually in the middle of packing for my trip right now, so my attention is split! GP Columbus is this weekend and I've been spending a lot of time in the lab getting ready for this limited format. The format is team sealed instead of solo, so it's slightly different. Team sealed is typically as fast as the draft format, so I found that my time was better...

Standard White Weenie

Dominaria is a massive throwback to sets gone by, and as such has revived an archetype of those days as well: White Weenie.   For newer players who haven’t seen this archetype before, White-Weenie is a go wide deck that utilises cheap creatures to get aggressive. It’s kind of like aggro, but with much more nostalgia arond the name. It's not like the deck hasn't seen attempts at revival...
