New Standard Brews

Now that we have the full set revealed for Shadows Over Innistrad we can start to get a more realistic view of what decks will look like for week one of the new Standard format. I’ve prepared two decks for this weeks article; one I expect to be a good starting point for week one of the format, as well as a off the wall brew that could either be absolute trash or quite powerful. Let’s start...

Naya Shadows

We still have a few more weeks of current Standard to play, but the time has come to release some new deck lists I’ve been brainstorming for Shadows Over Innistrad Standard to the world. There have been plenty of exciting new cards spoiled so far, and one that has particularly caught my attention (and more than likely everyone else's as well) is . This card at the moment appears to be the most...

An Eye for Ugin

It’s everybody’s favourite time of year, spoiler season. Khans of Tarkir was an amazing set, and I think everyone is paying particularly close attention to Fate Reforged spoilers because of this. Wizards decided to kick things off this season with a HUGE new planeswalker that we have had yet to see in card form: Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Good lord that’s big. This card is no joke people....

GP Ottawa Tournament Report

Recently, I attended the GP here in the lovely city of Ottawa (but technically Gatineau) for some Khans of Tarkir limited action. With very little practice in both Khans sealed and draft because of a busy school schedule, I felt a little unprepared heading into the tournament. I still had a general understanding of what was good and bad in the format so I wasn’t going in blind. Also if you...

Treasure Tron – By Alex Battistelli

The Modern format has been shaken up in a big way with the release of Khans of Tarkir. We no longer see top 8’s littered with Pod and GBx decks. Instead we’ve seen the rise of UR Delver and Burn, and blue decks seemingly have taken over the format. Now what does this mean for us Tron players? Well, bad things of course. GBx and Pod decks were our best matchups, and now that those decks have...

Delving into Modern

Modern PTQ season is upon us, and with this every Pro Tour hopeful will be looking for the best deck to take to every PTQ within reasonable distance. With a format as incredibly diverse as Modern, finding the “best” deck can be quite difficult. A much better approach to this format is to find a deck you enjoy and grind games until the end of time. Learning your deck completely inside and out...

Journeying into Nyx Standard

I love spoiler season. Every spoiler season without fail I find myself staring at my computer screen filled with endless different Notepad documents, concocting list after list of new decks in an attempt to take advantage of standards newest potential powerhouse cards. And boy do we have some sweet new cards for us to look at! I can honestly say that the cards that have been spoiled so far are...

Feeling Liberated

Let’s talk about Modern. The Modern format has been radically growing in popularity since its creation, culminating at Grand Prix Richmond earlier this year. Richmond broke the record for the largest constructed Grand Prix ever with 4300 players, highlighting just how much players today enjoy playing Modern. The format is dominated by decks, variants, and Affinity, all of which are very...
