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 […]
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.

Champions of Kamigawa drew upon Japanese mythology, with its shrines, kami and crazy dragon spirits. Though it doesn’t pack in the ridiculous combo cards like Mirrodin did, it is full of legends, which means that there are a bunch of cards that get their value from Commander. This week, we will look at the first half of the set and how you can get the most money from Champs. Let’s look!
If you give a man a fish, he eats for a day. If you teach a man to build a budget fish deck, he wins Commander games for the rest of his life. You know Carlos is bringing the heat with Sygg!
Ryan continues this week’s Commander series, investigating the financials of the latest release. Today he tackles the green, artifact, and land cards!
