Welcome back, folks. It’s been a while since I last wrote an article, in large part because I’ve been unwilling to make any financial moves on MTGO before reading the December 6th announcement about competitive play on Arena. What is announced there could have major ramifications for investing on MTGO, and so I’ve been very […]

Modern is popular enough on the tournament level to drive prices and many of the cards in the set are old enough that it’s hard to track them down. They get expensive or hard to find.

No doubt, pros are looking at these same results and compiling the best decks to bring to the Pro Tour.

Let’s take a look at a few that I’ve identified early in the lead-up.
