Today’s article subject spawned from a discussion that began in the QS Discord chat. One of our members was contemplating stepping away from the game for a while and wanted to know the best place to park his money and/or what to trade into. As expected, a lot of people immediately jumped to Power. The general […]
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 […]

On this week’s QS Cast, we discuss Masters 25, Challenger Decks, and more!
Planeshift is, as middle sets go, on the lower end of the power curve. While there are some valuable cards that have held the test of time, it also contained some clunkers that have been obsoleted. It was the set that introduced the Lairs, like Dromar’s Cavern, our first real tri-lands. The Shards of Alara […]
