Experience vs. Experience; Grand Prix Niagara Falls

Hey, MTGCanada readers! I'm back, and this time I'll be speaking about my experience at MagicFest Niagara Falls. I recently wrote an article (here) lightly covering the game plan for a few of the cheaper Legacy decks out there. The purpose was both to figure out what deck I wanted to play and to help people in the same boat I was in; new to the format, looking to start playing on a smaller...

Making the Jump to Legacy; Prepping for Niagara Falls

Hey, MTGCanada readers! I'm back with a beginner's look at the Legacy format as I prepare to step into the big leagues. If you're unaware, Legacy is a format that includes cards from every Magic set in history, which provides some very powerful and entertaining game play. Part of the reason I wanted to write this article is to highlight some of the easier decks to jump into the format with....

1 Deck, 2 Deck ~ Jund Deck, Brew Deck

1 Deck, 2 Deck ~ Jund Deck, Brew Deck and random thoughts on community... Hey there MTGCanada readers! I'm back once more with a Standard brew that seems to hold its own in the current environment. The project spawned from a few ideas of card groupings I liked together. As usual, I had a decent core idea, but had a hard time fleshing the list out. Luckily, I took it to my teammate Aaron Stross...

How Wizards Saved My Prerelease

How Wizards Saved My Prerelease... ...and a look at my draft weekend! Hey there MTGCanada readers! Ravnica Allegiance is fresh on the shelves and has been an absolute blast right from the midnight Prerelease. I wanted to look back at my first shot at Ravnica Allegiance Limited, my decks, and do a little story-telling along the way. As someone who isn't particularly comfortable with Limited...

We're Better Together...

Hey there everyone, Happy New Year! It's been a busy time of year and my writing has been less frequent. But the Magic has been great and life is good! There was a little bit of a lull at the end of 2018 for me. Whenever I'm not playing tournaments all weekend, something feels off. I may have to get used to this new found free time over the weekends with the PTQ system making its return. This...

Grinding With Abzan in Standard

Hi there everyone, This time I'm back with some thoughts and a deck list from a friend that's been doing relatively well in my local Standard. This deck really reminds me of Khans of Tarkir block, smashing  mirror matches, due to the grindy/value nature of the deck. I took this 75 from my friend, Nolan McDonald who had won a PPTQ with it on Saturday, November 10th, at Worlds Collide in Oshawa,...

Living End and A Lesson in Redirection

Hi there everyone! It's great to be back here writing for MTGCanada! I've taken a little over a month off from writing thanks to life, as happens sometimes. But I've had a lot of really cool experiences over the past two months, and the events I've gone to have sort of refreshed my M:tG energy. It's story time. TL;DR - there's another section later on focusing on my favourite shenanigans. In the...
