Budget Brews: U/r Fevered Control

Hello all and welcome to this weeks Budget Brews, where we try to untap the Multiverse, just a little cheaper. Shadows Over Innistrad is chalk full of build around cards, so this week we're going to look at Standard yet again. is a card that I've been seeing lists floating around the net, and have run into a few control decks online optimizing the card, and after losing a few times to it I...

Commander Mondays: Ana's Anachantments

For this week I decided to do something a little bit unorthodox. at the helm of an enchantment deck. Most enchantment decks I've seen are Bant coloured, using as the commander. But I decided that I liked using black mana a bit too much. Anafenza was literally only chosen because she has the most useful effect for simply sitting on the battlefield, as I believed I was highly unlikely to cast any...

Bad Brews: Mina and Denn, Wildborn

Hello and welcome back to bad brews! Like we always do at this time, I go for mine... I shouldn’t quote Kanye at any time, but there... I did. Bad Brews is of course the game we play where we crack open a booster pack of something in Standard and hope for the worst. That's right, the worst rare possible is our goal, because we are going to try to make up a deck using that rare as the focal...

Going Rogue: Blink and You'll Miss it.

Hello and welcome back to another edition of Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal but it often happens anyway.

With some copies of , , , and in the deck, there was really not much my opponents could do once the ball...

Modern Unbans - What to do with Sword and Vision

It’s been several weeks since the Modern banlist update, and so far fears of a “blue control spring” replacing “eldrazi winter” appear unfounded. and are both putting up results, but neither is dominating - pretty much the best case scenario for cards once deemed worthy of a pre-emptive ban out of the format. It turns out that beneath the eminent strength of both cards rests some hidden...

Budget Brews: Black-Green Aristocrats

Hello all and welcome to this weeks Budget Brews! I was originally planning on rolling out a sweet Legacy Combo Brew, but since I'm sitting here writing this and watching Pro Tour Shadows Over Innistrad, I think maybe we should check out Standard! Before I continue with my little Budget Brew, I want to give a shout out to Dan Lanthier who ended the weekend in Madrid with an amazing 30 points. I...

Musings of the Madman: Three to Ban, Three to Unban

Welcome back all! Let's look at the Commander banned list for a few moments. They usually take their time banning items, and usually only after a massive outcry on various forums and clear levels of player frustration. A more dynamic approach might benefit the format, but that incurs other frustrations, in that players might not know what to build next. Let's move a handful of cards off and on...
