I ran across this list recently, and it answers a question I can't say I considered much but is actually super interesting: Which Return to Ravnica block mechanics had the most impact on Constructed?

This was definitely one of the most-played Charms. What else made the list?

I remember when RTR came out thinking it was cool that each Guild would have its own mechanic, but I considered it really unlikely that they could all make the cut into Standard. Interestingly, Wizards actually did a great job with this, as almost all of them did make the cut. Of course, how successful each one was varied greatly, and you can find the list here.

  1. I’m curious if the free section is meant to give a taste of the insider, or just be general interest stories about magic. If the hope is to attract more subscribers, the content might need to become somewhat more dense financially. This article definitely has a place, but I’m not sure it (and much if the other free content) will be pulling in subscriptions. For what it’s worth…

    1. I can tell you this is definitely not a taste of Insider so much as general interest topics from around the Magic world. My finance content obviously looks nothing like this 🙂
