After not touching Modern in the latest B&R announcement, Aaron Forsythe took to Twitter with a trove of valuable insights. David dissects their implications.
Banning problem cards helps build healthy metagames. For this, Modern is no exception. Today David examines a different approach: unbanning.
Nearly two months have passed since the release of Zendikar Rising, but Adam feels there are still cards that are undervalued in the marketplace.
The greatest problem I face as an article writer is finding something to write about. Inspiration is fickle, as motivation can also be. This is made especially difficult by the pandemic choking off my easiest content source: actual Modern tournaments. Without much happening in greater Modern to discuss and limited source material, I find myself […]
But for copyright concerns, I would have led off this article with the lyrics to “Another One Bites the Dust.” I hope perfectly reasonable intellectual property law is happy with itself. There’s been another B&R Announcement. This time something actually is banned in Modern. So that’s nice. Even if it does moot a number of […]
The July 13, 2020 Banned and Restricted announcement is live!

Also included in this re-run are David’s thoughts headed into 2020, which deal with […]
Why do I write a Brew Report every month? Because Modern is brimming with innovation every month! While many of the decks featured in this column may not go on to win a GP, or even to carve out a sustainable metagame share, they all performed well at least once; it’s not always a cakewalk […]
David takes a good look at the upcoming War of the Spark Standard, and cards that could synergize well with Feather, the Redeemed.
By the time this piece is published, Mythic Championship London will be streaming, and Modern players will be testing the London mulligan in a high-pressure environment for the first time. The results of that event will have a massive effect on the format’s future. For those who just can’t wait until the Top 8 ends […]
