The Modern Rogue Report - Off the Wall Magic!

Hey there everyone and welcome back to the 20th instalment of The Modern Rogue Report! I'm Cody McCowell and this week we're going to be slacking a little bit. I found the deck I'm covering this week over at www.hareruyamtg.com, and boy is it a sweet one. So today we're going to be taking a look at Wall-Ramp combo by Nakagawa Natsuki. The deck was good enough to Top 4 a small event with ten...

Diving into Dominaria Draft with Arena!

Hey there everyone, I've been writing a lot of articles about Modern for the last while but I wanted to expand my subject matter. I've been having a lot of fun with Magic: the Gathering Arena lately and have decided to take advantage of the fact that the BETA testing non-disclosure agreement period is over. Ever since Arena came out I've basically stopped playing Hearthstone. I still enjoy...

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...

The Modern Rogue Report - Dirty Kitty Revival

Welcome to the 18th instalment of The Modern Rogue Report! I'm Cody, and this week I'm extremely excited to talk about Modern "Dirty Kitty". I haven't been playing Magic since the days of Extended, but this is an old concept that is usually tied to bigger names such as Billy Moreno, Osyp Lebedowicz, and Ben Stark, among other pioneers of the archetype. The general idea of this deck is to pair...

The Modern Rogue Report - Cremator Evolution

Hey, you're back! Welcome to the 17th instalment of The Modern Rogue Report! I'm Cody, and this week I'm excited to talk about a pretty janky Modern deck. I would say it looks too cute to be competitive, but a player named Watarai Junichi made it to the finals of a 93 player "God of Modern" trial (excuse the quick Google translation) on April 15th. Cremator Evolution is a deck that utilizes the...

The Modern Rogue Report - LVL. UP / +1 Brewing

Greetings and welcome in for the 16th instalment of The Modern Rogue Report! I'm Cody and this week I spent some time on skill building. As a competitive player, I've been known to err on the jankier side of things, but I've always played someone else's strategies and tweaked them to my liking. It's about time I started trying to bring some of my own original concepts to life. As I've said...

First Time RPTQ; A Learning Experience

This past weekend was the first opportunity I've had to compete in a Regional Pro Tour Qualifier for Pro Tour Dominaria (Richmond, Virginia). I made my way to Face to Face Games in Toronto on March 31 for six rounds of Rivals of Ixalan Sealed, followed by a Top 8 cut with Draft. My expectations weren't super high as I am a very weak limited player and rarely play Sealed or Draft. This article was...

The Modern Rogue Report - Who Wants to be a Mill-ionaire?

"Tiger, Tiger Woods, y'all" Aaaaaand welcome back for the 15th instalment of The Rogue Report! I'm Cody, and I hope I'm not the only person that remembers that quote from the movie-remake Down to Earth with Chris Rock. This week, I'm exploring one of the most recognisable strategies in Magic: Mill! But as easily recognisable as it is, this approach to deck building can be refreshing and is a...
