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...

Adventures in Standard: Ravnica Allegiance, Graded

Prerelease weekend has come and gone. Release weekend has just passed by. We've gotten some time with Ravnica Allegiance, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed with it so far. It's put in some nice work for me in limited and it's already gotten my brewing gears going. However, you're not here for me to gush about the set. You want to see this set graded and compared, so let's get right to it. As...

Adventures in Standard: To Arena or Not To Arena

Over the course of the beta period for Magic: Arena there's been some talk about a few topics. That's especially true now that it's clear Wizards of the Coast plans to pour a big investment into eSports, mainly featuring Arena. While people are focused on old clients and supported formats, I had a thought over the course of this week. What's the best way to play Standard? Paper, MTGO, or Arena?...

Adventure in Spoilers: Pestilent Spirit

You've seen the spoilers, you've heard the news, you've gotten caught up in the hype. Ravnica Allegiance is coming down the pipeline on January 25th and we've seen a lot of cards since New Year's. Things have been exciting in general, but something truly special dropped and I'm super excited about it: I don't know if you can tell, but this card is a game changer. In a set that, so far, followed...

Adventures in Standard: Making a Mark

If you had to pick two of the best cards from the last Standard rotation, what would you pick? For me, the answers are pretty easy: and . In case you don't follow, let me explain. In a time when cards like , , and by extension the entire energy mechanic were running amok, you needed a quick answer to keep them from going off. Having an answer for early game tempo pieces was absolutely vital. So...

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...
