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...

Seven Cards That Should be Great in Modern

Modern has recently seen a number of obscure, barely played cards rise to the top tables of competitive events without any obvious help from new printings. The poster child for this trend is which, if anything, should have seen less play with the ban but instead went on to become a top-tier format-defining juggernaut. Other examples include and making surprise Top 8 appearances at Pro Tour...

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,...

Card of the Day - Field of Ruin

In a block absolutely filled to the brim with cards that have utility in formats outside of Standard, it's rare to see a land with a lot of utility fly under the radar. Especially when it's a slightly underpowered version of a card that just rotated out. One that serves as possibly one of the most useful nonbasics in the game. Today's card is beautiful for a few reasons. It can be used...

The Unpopular Opinion - Jace, The Mind Sculptor

So, unless you've been living underneath a rock, you've probably heard about the unbanning of . It's been a hot topic in the Magic community since the formal announcement. We all know why it was done: to sell packs of Masters 25 so that Jace would be the chase mythic for the set. We also know that it's going to be insanely hard to get from these packs. Probably about as rare as, if not rarer...

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...

Something Old and Something New: Discard and Burn

There are two things that I've come to learn over the course of my years playing Magic the Gathering: never rush a deck build, and always be open to new alternatives. Back in the day, one of my favourite deck archetypes involved a whole lot of discard and a whole lot of punishment for it. I was sold on a mono-black deck featuring that I had built myself. In fact, one of the main reasons I kept...

Tarmogoyf's Adventures in Torontoland: A Top 64 GP Report.

Tarmogoyf was beginning to get very tired of sitting by the dice on the desk, and of having nothing to do: once or twice it had peeped into the Modern decks lying around, but they had no green or blue in them, "and what is the use of a deck," thought Tarmogoyf, "without green or blue?" Grand Prix Toronto was a great event for me. Not only did I put up a totally unexpectedly nice finish, but I...
