Jason Alt

Jason Alt is a value trader and writer. He is Quiet Speculation's self-appointed web content archivist and co-captain of the interdepartmental dodgeball team. He enjoys craft microbrews and doing things ironically. You may have seen him at magic events; he wears black t-shirts and has a beard and a backpack so he's pretty easy to spot. You can hear him as co-host on the Brainstorm Brewery podcast or catch his articles on Gatheringmagic.com. He is also the Community Manager at BrainstormBrewery.com and writes the odd article there, too. Follow him on Twitter @JasonEAlt unless you don't like having your mind blown.

Sarkhan’s Triumph This is bound to be worth $3-$5 in a few years if the set follows the typical trend of small third sets. This is narrow but it is also very powerful and I expect you to be able to grab these for free from draft chaff or trade for them a playset at […]

Hedonist’s Trove Enchantment When Hedonist’s Trove enteres the battlefield, exile all cards in target opponent’s graveyard. One per turn, you may cast a nonland card exiled by Hedonist’s Trove. You may play land cards exiled by Hedonist’s Trove. Likely too slow for Standard despite its utility as a Graveyard hoser, this is perfect for EDH. […]

Kolaghan’s Command This card is really polarizing people, which is very interesting. Some have called it the best of the cycle, some the worst. This certainly feels a lot like the others to me – a card with sideboard modes but enough maindeck modes that you can feel confident slotting this in the main. I […]

Sunbringer’s Touch “Win the game” If your hand has more than 3 cards, this is a cheaper, better Overrun for your smallest creature with the added benefit of making the power and toughness boost permanent. This also lets any creature previously boosted with counters a trampler, meaning if you’re megamorphing a lot you could just […]

Let’s get into it. Arashin Foremost WOW. This is seriously cool. This will remind everyone of Silverblade Paladin and that was a very good card. This is a little narrower and accordingly, its price will be limited. Silverblade was also a promo which limited its upside, but I still think this will be cheaper. Still, […]

Risen Executioner Creature – Zombie Warrior Risen Executioner can’t block Other zombie creatures you control get +1/+1 You may cast Risen Executioner from your graveyard if you pay an additional 1 for each other creature in your graveyard. Solid. Although this beater can’t block, it has a lot of things going for it. It’s a […]
