All good stories must come to an end. Hopefully, they’ll be paced better than Game of Thrones’s was.

Last week, alleged Modern Horizons leaks led to a spike in Flusterstorm. This sparked controversy within the community, with much of the blame falling upon “MTG finance”. This week Sig examines the history of MTG finance and shares his stance on how it does (or doesn’t) impact card prices.
At last, War of the Spark is fully spoiled! From a design perspective, I think War bodes well for Modern’s future, and more specifically for the upcoming Modern Horizons.

With War of the Spark’s spoiler season winding down, testing and brewing is accelerating. As per my usual, I’ve been working through interesting cards to find out how useful they’ll be in Modern.
