Budget Brews: Pillow Fort

Welcome, one and all to this week's Budget Brews! Now, I admit not all of my brews are really aimed to dominate the meta or even win games. They are for you to have some fun and do some crazy things. Here at Budget Brews we concentrate more on the 'funsies' side of Magic and if we win, well, it's just an added bonus. This past week in one of the various Magic Facebook groups I belong to,...

Musings of the Madman: Solving the 4-Colour Commander Dilemma

Welcome back all! Four-colour commanders have been a wishlist item for a long time, but the game’s developers have brushed them aside as being too clunky or even undesirable. Why make a four-colour Legendary Creature when you could simply make another wedge general or a five-colour one? Does the four-colour commander serve any purpose outside of pure novelty? (And in that vein, why is novelty a...

Daily Dose of Shadows Over Innistrad: Where Have You Been Nahiri?

Welcome to a crazy week on the Daily Dose of Shadows Over Innistrad as the official first preview week continues and we preview you some of the sweet new cards that come into our laps. One of the biggest mysteries coming into the set was what Planeswalkers would be in Shadows Over Innistrad.  There have been assumptions on Jace and Sorin being in the set as they have been seen on packaging and...

Birds of Death: Modern Ascendancy Gifts

Three mana is a lot to ask of a Modern card; especially a Modern card that does nothing by itself and has no immediate impact on the game state. Yet packs so much value in each trigger that it almost defies this common test of Modern playability. Untapping all of your creatures is worth a mana and a card if is to be believed, a one turn anthem is good for a card and two mana if we look at...

Zombie Loam in Modern

If you're like me, using your graveyard as a second library has always been appealing. It somehow manages to find its way in each of the formats you play. When I first started playing, I was most proud of my playset of s. They came and went in various brews, but never really found a home in an established Modern deck... until now. A Dredge deck (featuring four Bloodghasts!) managed to Top 8 last...

Daily Dose of Shadows Over Innistrad – Transformers, Horrors in Disguise!

Welcome all to some more preview action on the Daily Dose from the next amazing set, Shadows Over Innistrad! In the original Innistrad block, a majority of the transforming creatures were Werewolves, who always transformed when either no spells were played (Human to Werewolf) or when a player played two spells in a turn (Werewolf to Human). This time around most of the transforming creatures are...

Commander Mondays: The Tasigur Super Sluggers

Today I'm going to cover one of my new favourite decks, and an archetype that I don't believe I've gone into full detail about yet. In my introduction to Commander article, I briefly went over some of the main archetypes in Commander, including Group Pain/Group Slog. The commander I mentioned was as he is by far one of the most popular Generals for this type of deck. However, recently I decided...

Daily Dose of Shadows Over Innistrad – Clueless, So Far…

Welcome to some more fun previews for Shadows Over Innistrad on the Daily Dose!  Shadows Over Innistrad is shaping up to be quite the fun set and they’ve set up the new set with an interesting new mechanic/token.  In the past most tokens made in Magic have been creature tokens such as Goblin Tokens or Knight Tokens.  In recent years they’ve made the following non-creature tokens.    ...
