By Ryan OverturfEverybody knows that 4-3-2-2 drafts are awful value. The prize pool for them includes one fewer pack than an 8-4 or a swiss draft. Additionally, you really don’t increase your bankroll by very much when you win them. But Invasion block is sweet.

By Douglas LinnGrand Prix: Yokohama was this past weekend, attended by over 1,500 players battling for prizes and glory. Importantly, they did battle with Modern decks, which is good for Insiders. Modern is popular enough on the tournament level to drive prices and many of the cards in the set are old enough that it's hard to track them down. They get expensive or hard to find. Ergo, it's a good field to get action on, especially because many of the lower-tier decks still have good money rares in them that you can trade into. This week, we'll look at the Grand Prix results and analyze them for Modern play and speculation.

By Douglas LinnAs I write this, there are 167 of 249 M13 cards spoiled, and that's over half the set. Base sets rarely have brainbustingly-intense rares in them (Baneslayer excepted), but there's enough to get excited about at this point. There's also enough to be honest about in terms of holding off on purchasing. There will be much more M13 discussion in the coming weeks leading up to release, and this is an early edition with thoughts on what we have seen so far
