Musings of the Madman - Illuminating Modern

Welcome back all! Have you ever wanted to remove playing Magic: the Gathering from the opponent’s equation? Read on then! This week I’ll be dipping my toes into the Modern arena. I haven’t been a huge constructed player in the past little while, what with Extended rotating out and with my not having many decent staples and all. I did dip my toes into Standard when Khans of Tarkir was...

Commander Mondays - Association of Terrific Buddies

For the first article in my five-colour series, I decided to go with one of my most commonly requested archetypes, Super Friends. Now Super Friends decks tend to be pretty straightforward, they don't usually have an underlying cohesive strategy, thus falling into the "good stuff" category, but with a more set theme than most good stuff decks. A Brief Explanation Super Friends, for those unaware,...

Bad Brews - Retribution of the Ancients

Hello and welcome back to Bad Brews! Like a bad movie franchise we can't help but come back for more, and it goes a little something like this: We crack open a pack of cards from Standard, then we take the rare out of the pack and try to build a deck around it. Not all packs are created equal, so we also try to use as many playable uncommons and commons from the pack as physically possible. With...

Going Rogue: Death & Tentacles

Hello and welcome back to Going Rogue, where winning isn't the goal, but it often happens anyway! Uncertainty is the name of the game this week. We just went into a Modern Pro Tour uncertain if these emerging Eldrazi decks would even show up, and now we're coming out of it uncertain if Modern is even going to survive without a ban to keep them in check. With six Eldrazi decks in the Top 8 -...

Musings of the Madman - The Importance of Rivalry

Welcome back everyone! This week we’ll be examining competition at a meta level, namely the fun produced by having someone in your group that just seems to have all the answers, all the cards and all the aggro pointed at him. Having rivals can’t be understated. It leads to a game thriving, a metagame shifting, and card choices becoming narrower as a laser-like precision is used to exploit...

Commander Mondays - Teysa's Token Toys

Continuing from my article, I'm bringing another one of my old decks out of the vault. was the first Commander I ever built, and I throw the deck back together with revisions every once in a while. This exact deck list is not one that I have played yet, as it is updated to include cards from post-Theros (the last time I built the deck), but I plan to be tossing it together in a week and playing...
