The SCG Dallas Open showcased some interesting developments in several formats. Eddie takes stock of new technology and logs the changes to his portfolio in response.
Week one of new Standard is upon us, with an SCG Standard Open in the books. Eddie looks at the latest holds and folds in the context of the emerging metagame.
I know this is something we may grumble to ourselves when we get paired against the Control deck, but it’s not something that we usually actually encounter. Until now. Reddit comes through again, and in an odd subgame of finding the slowest possible way to win the game, they have determined a clear winner. In […]
Everyone loves a good Mesmeric Fiend, right? Definitely a powerful card back when it was printed, it’s an effect we haven’t seen in quite some time. Until now, that is. So that art is sweet, right? Besides that, I expect that this will see some play. Not a ton, since Sin Collector kind of fills […]
UPDATE: The entire card has been revealed! Check it out! We all know Wizards loves to bury spoilers for cards. We’ve seen Jace pieced out all over the world.

Check out the Journey Into Nyx Spoilers on our official [JOU] Mini-Site! Get out of here City of Brass. Move over, Reflecting Pool. We’ve got a new contender in town. I won’t lie, this was a surprise. A new five-color land, a full year after Ravnica block? Maybe a bit random, but we have a […]
Check out the Journey Into Nyx Spoilers on our official [JOU] Mini-Site! There’s nothing more fun than taking extra turns. Seriously, we all love to do it.
