Skluby-Do and the Fate Reforged Crew
With Fate Reforged being released I wanted to talk a little bit about the cards that I think you should pick up for casual formats, standard, and possibly for older formats. So let us begin with . She is a perfect card for the new tiny leaders commander format I have heard so much buzz about. Her ability is very strong and flavourful which will put her right up there in casual play. If a standard...
The “Core” of Modern
As part of its “metamorphosis” announcement last year, Wizards of the Coast notified players that Magic 2016 will be the last core set they produce, as magic production changes to a sequence of two-set blocks. While we’ll have to wait until the summer to see if M16 sends core sets out with a bang (Force of Will reprint perhaps?) or a whimper (bushido is back!), its a good time to look back...
For those that don't know me, I strongly identify with the Mardu Horde. Red, White and Black are the colours I like to play and I generally steer clear of Green and Blue. This is just my personal preference. Some of the guys I brew with say that it holds me back, but I think there are plenty of great players that basically play the same thing every time.

Defending Boss Sligh
I am here today to defend one of my favourite decks in Standard: Boss Sligh. Mono Red decks like Boss Sligh tend to get a bad reputation for being budget lists for those without other options. Just because a deck is cheap, however, doesn't mean that it can't be skill testing and competitive. Just remember: Anybody can win with , but it takes a master to win with red draft cards. There are Two...
Shaping Steel: Updating “Forged in Stone” for Competitive Play.
It's Commander Night at my LGS and I'd like to be headed there, but it's been snowing all day and the snowplows haven't been by yet. This is not a time to , this is a time to be sensible, make a cup of tea and do the next best thing. Write an article about a mono-white deck. Irony. In my most recent article, we discussed tuning up “Built from Scratch” for competitive commander play. Today,...

I'll be posting updates on which cards I feel will have the biggest impact on the most popular formats! January 6th - Today I'm going to talk about ! .. Or rather, green !
