    Magic Memories: Seasons Past

    Seasons Past, along with its black sibling from the same set, has seen zero play in Legacy from what I've seen. We are talking about six-mana sorceries, after all. In a format like Legacy, Seasons Past is too inefficient. Even Regrowth doesn't see much play. I think a big part of that is that...

    Magic Memories: Seasons Past

    When Shadows over Innistrad was new, one question that came up was whether this was supposed to be part of a cycle. WotC likes to do cycles of cards that all follow some pattern, especially when the cycle is one card of each color, like the "Laces" or the "Boons" from the original base set...

    Magic Memories: Seasons Past

    When I think of what to write about for threads like this, I have this recurring thought process that goes something like... I should write about cards that aren't from the 90's. It's not like I stopped playing Magic in the 90's. There's this card I've been using a lot in EDH and in Canadian...

    Warhammer Quest: The Sylvan Epic

    -Throg tries to cast the most powerful fire spell he can think of. Somehow, he unleashes a Firestorm, dealing 18 damage to three of his his four opponents. One of them is swept up in the conflagration and utterly destroyed. The other two are badly damaged, but still standing. -Tomas draws 3...

    Tribal Update Report: Commander Legends

    Giant: One new card. I’m going to say probably not, but I won’t rule it out. The card is also a pirate, and seems a better fit for that tribe. Goblin: Four new cards. Tribal synergies are for other tribes in this set. The cards are fine, but Goblin Tribal doesn’t need them. Golem: Three new...

    Tribal Update Report: Commander Legends

    This report will be running a bit late, but you’ll live. Now, Commander Legends is a set themed around the Commander format. The set is going to make waves in that format, but what does this mean for Tribal formats? While cards that have mechanics specific to Commander don’t necessarily do...

    Nitpicking the Nitpicking Nerds (the best EDH cards from each set) [Article]

    I was introduced to an hour-long video created by Messrs “The Nitpicking Nerds” covering the best cards for EDH from every Magic set to release new cards into the game. If these guys had merely selected their #1 pick from each set, I wouldn’t be commenting on it now. But they also threw in some...
