Today’s article subject spawned from a discussion that began in the QS Discord chat. One of our members was contemplating stepping away from the game for a while and wanted to know the best place to park his money and/or what to trade into. As expected, a lot of people immediately jumped to Power. The general […]
The holidays are in full swing and the new year is right around the corner. And as some of you may know, the stock market has been a bit shaky in the last month or so. But it seems Magic is still doing pretty well during this slightly volatile time. I think a good portion […]
Magic Online has a problem. A card value problem. In a recent Channel Fireball article, Florian Koch showed just how much card prices have fallen over the past few years: That’s right.

Guilds of Ravnica competitive draft participation was roughly equivalent to that of Hour of Devastation (consistently sustaining about 600-650 participants). Ixalan consistently sustained about 700-750 participants, Rivals of Ixalan 750-800, and Dominaria 850-900. That’s a 29-percent decrease from […]

The banning of Deathrite Shaman and Gitaxian Probe will have a dramatic impact on the Legacy metagame, and today Adam explores the financial impact.

Jason Alt discusses cancelled orders and contract breaches, the overwhelming success of devotion on the PT, and results from SCG Milwaukee.
Jason Alt is at it again spewing his opinions, this time on forgetfulness, post-rotation prices and lame duck Standard brews.

Jason hails the arrival of a new Legacy deck developed by QS’s own, marvels at auction-goers’ utter ignorance of Magic value, and peruses the weekend’s tournament results with his characteristic wit.
What makes a Group Hug deck tick? Which cards and effects are the most vital? And, if desired, how do you go about winning? Robert has all this, and more!
