The Modern Rogue Report - All My Marvellous Dragons

Hey everybody, and welcome to the twelfth instalment of The Modern Rogue Report. I'm Cody, and this week we're going to be taking it reaaaaaaaally easy with a big ol' clunker of a deck. When it goes off, it's super sweet. And when it doesn't... well, at least your opponent had a cool deck, right? Don't get burned, because this week we've got a ! Sometimes you just have to take a silly deck out...

The Modern Rogue Report - Soufflé-er

Hey everyone, and welcome to the eleventh Rogue Report! I'm Cody, and this week I'll be taking a look at a spicy piece of work that showed up at Grand Prix Lyon, Modern (Surprise). This deck has some seriously cool cards in it that you may have never expected to see come up in the format. I'll be going over the Soulflayer list that did well at GP Lyon recently, as well as exploring some original,...

The Modern Rogue Report - To be a Rogue...

Hello everyone! It is an astounding privilege for me to join the crew here at MTGCanada to write about my favourite Magic format, Modern! In this weekly series I'll be looking at decks that are not of the norm; decks that one doesn't expect to play against when going to a bigger tournament. Deck lists that I look at will vary in their price range from absolutely budget to top tier, and won't...

Almost Famous: Possibility Storm

No, not the puzzle series this time. The actual card. Since its 2013 release, this card has been toyed with in numerous ways, mostly as yet another way to try to cheat out . The nice little upside of doing it with rather than or is that you actually cast the card, so you get the extra turn trigger, making the whole ordeal pretty unsurvivable for your poor opponent. The other interesting upside...

Going Rogue: Marionette Master Combo

Hello and welcome back to Going Rogue, where winning isn’t the goal but it often happens anyway! It’s been quite a long time since I’ve shared a new brew, but it’s a special time of year right now. That magical time where even the proudest of Modern fanbois will meander out of their damp, curmudgeonly cave to briefly wonder what creative opportunities rotation will bring to Standard. With...

Modern Brewing with As Foretold

As a Modern-only player, spoiler season is usually something more of passing curiosity than active analysis. New cards cycle in, but with the exception of cards like or , it's rare that anything particularly drastic ever comes of it. Well, I think yesterday might have been one of those days, because there is a very real chance that is one of those cards. Let me temper the excitement that has the...

Evaluating Energy for Modern

Hello and welcome back to Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal but it often happens anyway. Rather than looking at a specific brew today, I want to turn our attention to an important question regarding deck creation in Modern: Is energy viable as a deck archetype? The answer today is almost certainly a "no". The card pool is too small to draw from, and the power level just isn't that high....

Going Rogue: Big Monkey Zoo

Hello and welcome back to Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal but it often happens anyway. It's no secret that I prioritize the flashy over the reliable. I find winning with style to be so much more satisfying than winning consistently - I like card selection, flicker effects, and stack shenanigans, and apparently advocate for blue in 73% of my published brews. But sometimes - just...
