In the spirit of Magic’s 30th Anniversary and nostalgia, Tony is sharing 30 of his favorite cards from each of his past 30 years of playing the game.
The bars are opening, and with them, certain among the FNM registry’s many stinky basements. In other words, it’s officially Christmas. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, well, it’s time to start: Modern Horizons 2 is fully spoiled as of yesterday! On that note, I’m thrilled to welcome you, fellow Modern fanatic, to the first […]
The sequel to Guilds of Ravnica and the 80th expansion set in Magic: The Gathering’s history is due to release on January 25, 2019. Here’s what we know about Ravnica Allegiance (RNA) so far, including any cards in the spoiler, the guilds represented, and cards to speculate on before the full spoiler is released. The Guilds […]
The holidays are in full swing and the new year is right around the corner. And as some of you may know, the stock market has been a bit shaky in the last month or so. But it seems Magic is still doing pretty well during this slightly volatile time. I think a good portion […]
Ultimate Masters has hit the market and there’s already been a lot of movement. The prices of the reprints dropped as they usually do when a set first hits the market.

This is the first article from my new series, MTG Questions. You might be familiar with the Hold ‘Em & Fold ‘Em series (rebranded as MTG Metagame Finance), which takes a tournament-oriented perspective.

Adam explores the main drivers of the market this week—Pro Tour 25th Anniversary and Commander 2018—and the cards they are moving.
You may have seen that I published an article on CFB earlier this week praising the return of core sets to Magic. I love core sets on every level. I love that they return Magic from the goofy gimmicks and settings of expansion sets to something more broadly recognized as Magic: The Gathering. I enjoy Core […]
