Jonathan Medina, I salute you.  Not for what you have done, not for what you may do, but simply because you dared to try.  I cannot fathom a worse pack for you to have opened in your quest for Power.  Actually, I can.   It would be all blank.  I’ve seen Fallen Empires with more trade […]

It seems like the Transcendent Master debate got some great discussion going a couple days ago.  I want to explain that while I may not be 100% sure that he’ll stay expensive, I am much more interested in generating dialogue within the community.  The price of cards is shaped by every one of us, to […]

I got an IM from the inimitable Patrick Chapin the other day, and we got to talking about RoE’s Mythics.  We both believe that the Mythic market may be due for a correction due to all the high-dollar cards in the set.  One thing led to another, and eventually we found a point of contention.  […]

Readers are the most vital component of any website or blog, and as such, I like to reach out to my readers and find out what they really want.  I’ve been exploring a lot of ideas on how to improve this site, and the #1 request is an increase in the frequency of updates.  I […]

 This was written in response to some comments that I received on my Top Level Trading post at Quiet Speculation. Sometimes my trades make people wonder, “how does this guy sleep at night”!? Is it right to take a trade that is in your favor? How much you can make on a trade without being immoral? What is the […]

I’ve been discussing this with a local friend, and we’re a little fascinated by Sarkhan the Mad.  I’m going to make this mostly about the numbers.  Since his main draw to us is his ability to draw cards in R/B decks, we want to know what the average R/B deck will expect to get out […]

Thanks to the good folks at Wizards of the Coast, we’re able to bring you yet another EXCLUSIVE preview card, this time from the upcoming Rise of the Eldrazi expansion set.  It’s another exciting one, this time a Mythic Rare vampire named Nirkana Revenant. Let’s start with competitive constructed play.  It’s unlikely that the new […]

Would you trust this man with $65?  I sure wouldn’t, but I did.  F**K YOU, Aaron Harang. Why am I cursing out the Cincinnati Reds’ ace pitcher?  Because he’s Fantasy Baseball Kryptonite, and I have him on my team.  I spent $65 to enter this league, for reference.  Fantasy Baseball is a game just like […]

You mad? The former marquee chase rare of Shards of Alara is back in Black.  Sarkhan the Mad is the newest addition to the Planeswalker lineup, showing once again that R&D; are really seeing how far they can push the type.  Sarkhan embodies everything that is Red and Black gorgeously by trading time for assets.  […]

Now that we’re starting to see some real spoilers from Rise of the Eldrazi, it’s time to start considering where this set might be going.  Worldwake’s financial values were headlined by Jace and the as-yet unplayed Abyssal Persecutor.  RoE looks to be headlined by the colorless, yet not artificial Eldrazi Mythics.  There are also rumors […]

As many of you know, I’ve been very, very busy.  I run this site, which has gone slightly neglected from time to time, I write for ManaNation and MTGO Academy, run the Dragons Den in Lafayette, Indiana, and from time to time, I’ve been known to actually play a game or two of Magic.  Combining […]
