I learned a new thing today. That thing? Rejected flavor text. It’s a little-known website out there, but Rejected Flavor Text has some winners. Take, for instance, this rejected flavor text for All Is Dust. ““Not by the hair on my chinny-chin-chin,” said the pig from inside the brick house. “If you say so,” said […]
Dragon’s of Tarkir is failing to excite many in the tournament community, but Corbin believes its value will ultimately be buoyed by casual demand. Read on for his explanation.
Not that I know much about any of it, but there’s a lot of different ways to make art for Magic. From your “traditional” methods to the newest forms of creation, Magic art is created in a variety of ways, much of which is, like most other things these days, digital. But not Dragons of Tarkir. […]

There was an interesting discussion about this that spawned from this post, but there’s a TL;DR version as well. Basically, it boils down to this question: should a store employee or judge working the event also be allowed to play in the event? The rules are that they can, so there’s no issue there. The […]
It’s that time again, the time when everyone is going to look ahead to Dragons of Tarkir! Also, it’s that time when we all do set reviews. At Brainstorm Brewery we’re no different, and we spent the week on the podcast turning in a two-hour review of every Rare and Mythic. I’m sure we’re right […]

There’s been a popular series running around recently, highlighting some competitive-ish decks for formats while keeping the cost under XYZ amount of dollars. Kind of a cool idea, and an easy way for people to break into older formats. Now, we’ve talked before about how sometimes building a “cheaper” Tier 2 deck is more expensive […]
This is cross-posted in a partnership with www.empeopled.com. Spoilers upfront: I don’t expect any bans or unbans when Dragons of Tarkir officially releases next week. Modern seems healthy-ish if not perfect, and Standard and Legacy seem to be in okay places as well. But you never know what could happen, and today I want to […]
The Dragons of Tarkir prerelease is almost upon us, and Gavin Verhey at the mothership has you ready to go. There’s the usual info and deck-building tips, but there’s also info about the promotion that is happening at this particular Prerelease. Dargons destroy things! That’s it in a nutshell.

And in Magic, it does even more. I’m not an art guy. I’m no Mike Linnemann. Half the time I don’t even look at the art outside of using it to identify cards. But, hell, when you take the time there’s some really cool stuff there. Take this, for instance. Looked at separately, you’d never notice […]
Right before Dragons of Tarkir gets officially released, Corbin looks back at his calls for Fate Reforged. Read on to see how his predictions fared this time around.
Jason does a great job covering all your spoiler needs for Dragons of Tarkir, but we have some late-breaking spoilers today that I wanted to write a little about.
