On the heels of Innistrad: Midnight Hunt, Kai goes over some opportunities people missed, and how we can avoid making the same mistakes with Crimson Vow.
Welcome to the start of Modern Horisons 2 spoiler season. The official start, anyway. The teasers we’ve already received don’t count. Because those were preseason teasers, not spoilers. There must be a difference other than semantics. I have no idea what beyond the timing is actually different, but there must be one to justify calling […]
Greetings students, and welcome to the first week of Strixhaven 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. […]
Kai examines the recent spike of Chain of Smog from Onslaught, its infinite combo potential with Professor Onyx, and what that will mean for prices the near future.
With Strixhaven spoilers on the horizon, David gives us a quick rundown of all the wizard tribal cards you should know about.
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. Normally, 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 […]
In these uncertain times, it is only natural to seek stability and comfort in the familiar and predictable. Which is a convoluted way of saying that the world may be burning, but spoiler season has returned on schedule. It’s not much relative to everything else, but even small comforts are important. In the past, Core […]
David reviews Zaxara, the Exemplary and gives us the inside scoop on what cards could go in the 99.
Alright Magic world, it’s time to screech to even more of a halt: it’s spoiler time again. That means you, Timmy and Tammy! Particularly you, since this set is tailor made to your preferences, they being giant monsters and the making thereof. The pickings are a bit thinner for Spike this time around, but that’s fine […]
As a new sets come out, the entire Magic writing world speculates on the spoilers. Why wouldn’t we? There’s not always much else going on during spoiler season, and brewing with new cards and ideas is a significant part of the game’s appeal. Plus, if Wizards is going to hand us easy content, it would […]
