Daily Dose of Hour of Devastation – Time to Eternalize the Joy

Welcome all to the first preview week here on the Daily Dose of Hour of Devastation!

One of the first things I look for in a new set is which new mechanics will be introduced, and what mechanics will return. There are evergreen mechanics that we see in every set, such as...

Daily Dose of Hour of Devastation – It's All About the Hate!

Welcome all to another edition of the Daily Dose of Hour of Devastation, where I talk about some of the new preview cards coming for Hour of Devastation. Today, I want to talk about hate cards.

Daily Dose of Amonkhet – Standard Deck Tech - Jeskai Planeswalker Control

Welcome to the Daily Dose of Amonkhet, where today I’ll be talking about a new Jeskai Control deck that I look to be playing in the coming weeks after the Amonkhet release. When I make Control decks, I usually like to have them Planeswalker based. With seven sets currently in Standard, the card base provides many choices on how to build a Control deck.

Daily Dose of Amonkhet - Standard Deck Tech – Red/White Exert

Welcome all to the Daily Dose of Amonkhet, where this week, in preparation for set release on April 28th, I’m going to be talking about some Standard decks I think will be making an impact on Standard in the coming months.

Welcome all to the Daily Dose of Amonkhet, where today I’m going to be going over three more of the best archetypes to be playing in Amonkhet Limited. To recap from yesterday, an archetype in Magic is a strategy, usually involving a set of colours within which you can build your deck. What’s great about a large set like Amonkhet is that there are so many different options for players. The six...
