spoiler

Nobody enjoys performance reviews. Even if they’re positive. There’s just something existentially distressing that comes with being assessed, aside from any professional implications stemming from said review. And they’re also frequently boring for everyone involved. (From personal experience.) However, they can be useful for fostering improvement. Especially when they’re self-administered in a public setting, so […]

I’m in an unusual position this spoiler season. Two weeks ago, barely anything had been spoiled; today, the whole set is not only spoiled, but available online. Such are the breaks when spoiler season happens over the first week of a new month. As such, this will be a different kind of spoiler article. I […]

To quote a great doctor, “the M.H. saga continues.” Yesterday, we considered the decks to be impacted and created by Modern Horizons 2, and today, we’ll look at at the many role-players present in the set.┬áLet’s begin with the Incarnation cycle (ranked!), after which we’ll check out new removal, utility, and build-around options. Finally, it […]

The bars are opening, and with them, certain among the FNM registry’s many stinky basements. In other words, it’s officially Christmas. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, well, it’s time to start: Modern Horizons 2 is fully spoiled as of yesterday! On that note, I’m thrilled to welcome you, fellow Modern fanatic, to the first […]

And now, back to the spoilers. The full spoiler is now out and┬áStrixhaven launches online this Thursday. In turn, this means that brewing and experimentation is already underway. Which means that the fruits of discovery will begin to make themselves known for next month’s metagame update. Having just typed that sentence, I’m worried that my […]

Greetings students, and welcome to the first week of┬áStrixhaven spoilers. As this is the first week, I’ll be keeping things simple by going through the set’s mechanics. I’ve made this a tradition for all new set spoilers, and it’s particularly appropriate this time as the new mechanics are a both surprisingly straightforward and annoyingly indirect. […]

Kaldheim is finally here and legal, and there’s a lot to unpack in this relatively innocuous set. Among the cards I’m most excited for are a set of juicy effect lands, an intriguing foretell spell, some promising hate cards, and a new cycle of Gods more tailored to Modern than any previous incarnation. Let’s dive […]

It’s an odd set where there doesn’t appear to be anything amiss. As I’m writing this sentence, there is nothing that even vaguely resembles anything dangerous. Which is not a bad thing. It’s just weird, given that we’ve had the companions, Astrolabe, Uro, Oko, and Hogaak in the past two years busting everything. And that’s […]

It’s time for that quarterly tradition of reviewing the latest spoilers! Which for the past few iterations has been oddly trepidatious. Prior to 2019, Modern never had to worry about a new set coming out. We maybe had one or two cards make lasting impressions, which kept the format stable. Then Wizards seemed to lose […]

With the new set fully spoiled, it’s my turn to look at the spoilers.┬áNormally, I’d have led off with a look at the new mechanics. It just wasn’t applicable this time. Kicker and landfall have been around before, and party isn’t really a mechanic. And the Spell lands aren’t enough to carry a whole article. […]

Ah, spoiler season. The time when I don’t have to stretch myself doing statistical work. Just looking at the new cards, doing some basic analysis, and speculating about whether there’s a place in Modern for them. Simple and low-pressure, just what this year’s called for. Then, something had to come in a ruin everything: a […]

Zendikar Rising spoilers are officially underway! That also means summer is ending… but what great outdoor plans did we have that weren’t ruined by a global pandemic anyway? There’s never been a better time to forget about real-life exploration and lock ourselves inside to peruse new cards at a glowing computer screen! Flip Top Rising’s […]

Well, that was fast. Normally we have three full weeks of spoilers, but Wizards has really rushed out┬áIkoria. I’m guessing the quarantine is a factor here and they’re in a bit of a scramble. In any case, the entire set is now out. And it’s a little mediocre, Modern-wise. As I mentioned last week, this […]
