This week Rob reflects on a small tournament he organized and the lessons learned from each of the three draft formats it included.
Ultimate Masters is still in full bounce back mode, and the last World Magic Cup has come to a finish. Plus, some sweet Ravnica Allegiance spoilers have hit the market so there’s gonna be a nice mix of things to talk about again in this piece. Owing to the spoilers, this might be a little […]
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. But it seems like the prices have started to rebound a lot quicker this time around. There’s a slight possibility they could drop again […]
Magic Online has a problem. A card value problem. In a recent Channel Fireball article, Florian Koch showed just how much card prices have fallen over the past few years: That’s right. To own a playset of the cheapest version of every Magic card ever printed on MTGO would have cost you roughly $28,000 in […]

I dislike Caw-Blade and Valakut, and I utterly refuse to play monored into Timely Reinforcements, so I was set on playing Pyromancer Ascension and built the deck on MTGO myself. […]
Have you every considered building an aggressive deck for Commander? Rob’s here with the rundown on getting your Red Zone action on in with 100 cards!
How may bad commander choices can you name? Jules says there really isn’t any! See how he breaks down crafting decks, and why you should consider something a little more unconventional!
Anthony Avitollo, our resident cube master, breaks down or completely blasts some of the best (and overhyped cards) for cubes from New Phyrexia!
Pull up a spoiler (like this one) and let’s take a look at the upcoming set. Mythics Karn Liberated – Overhyped by far. Yes, it’s colorless so anyone can play it, but it costs 7 mana so only ramp and control decks would. Ramp decks have better things to ramp into. Control decks are awkwardly […]
Speculating on the contents of From the Vault: Legends, Dr Jeebus shares his perspective on what’s going into it, and why.
