Magic: the Gathering. Let’s Talk: Boros Burn, or “The Best Introduction Deck in Modern.”

Modern MTG is a format that has a variety of decks to choose from, whether they are good or bad. So much so that it may be hard to pick one out for a newer player. On top of that, not all of them are easy to pilot. Many require you to know the format …

Magic: the Gathering. Let’s Talk: The Mono-White Philosophy. The Color of Law, Protection, and Structure.

Throughout a vast portion of humankind's history, we have been known to construct civilizations and societies to keep ourselves in an organized union.
