By the time you read this, Strixhaven: School of Mages will have been available on MTGO for six days. And some people even have it in paper. Consequently, results are beginning to trickle in which include the new cards. Which means that I can start seeing how well my psychic abilities are developing. And maybe […]
With Core Set 2021 launched into Standard, David takes a look back at Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths and gives us a few key cards to consider in Commander.
