Going Rogue: If I Only Had a Heart

Welcome back to another edition of Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal but it often happens anyway. Today we're going to take a look at one of the most interesting build-around-me cards of all time, Laugh, scoff, chortle. What a terrible card. It's a do-nothing Enchantment, playable on the same turn as a . Something like this could never succeed in a competitive format, right? Let's not...

Easing into competitive modern

It should not surprise anyone that Magic is an expensive hobby. It becomes even more expensive to be able to compete at a competitive level. With competitive staples ranging from $5 into the hundreds, a complete tournament-quality deck can command a significant sum. Though not as expensive as Legacy, Modern decks come with hefty price tags with current top Modern decks ranging from $430 to $1950...

Battling for Zendikar in Commander

With a new set spoiled and a release event behind us, the eyes of Commander players turn longingly toward new additions to their favourite decks. We won’t be doing any price valuations here (let it be said that the expeditions will make great trade bait though!) but rather seeing which cards could fit into existing shells and perhaps impact our groups longer-term. Battle for Zendikar (BFZ)...

A Higher Standard - Still DRE

This past weekend I had a PPTQ weekend hosted by J & B Books in Trenton and P Market in Belleville. This means I had to build a standard deck the weekend after release. No time to scour SCG results. No real time to test all the new cards. This left me in a weird place. I had to put some music on and think. As I scour through articles I hear. “Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got...

Going Rogue: How To, Part 1

Hello and welcome back to Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal but it often happens anyway. Today I simply wanted to share some general rules to keep in mind when Going Rogue, whether with a fresh build of your own, or when choosing one from a silly column like this and others like it. As fun as it is to show up at events with a quirky pile, it stills brings on a case of the feelbads when...

Dollar Pack Draft

Drafting old cards is probably my favourite thing in magic. Unfortunately out-of-print booster packs get more expensive every year, and since nobody in my playgroup wants to pay $60+ for a draft (including me) the best case for drafting old cards is usually a mixed-booster draft with a couple packs from older sets. There are of course budget alternatives: cube is an easy solution, and having...
