Magic: the Gathering. Let’s Talk: Oona, Queen of the Fae. Lore and EDH Deck Tech.

Magic: the Gathering. Let’s Talk: Mardu Pyromancer, or “MY version of Mardu Pyromancer!!”

  Decklist UPDATE: It's been pointed out that we should run graveyard hate in our sideboard, so I have put in two Relics of Progenitus. There's a saying that each color has a two drop creature that is the best out of all the two drops in their respective color because they see play wherever they're …

Magic: the Gathering. Let’s Talk: My 5 Favorite Magic: the Gathering Set Blocks (in no particular order).

  I think it goes without saying that Magic: the Gathering is one of my favorite games of all time, or else why would I be writing about it? It's a game that is very easy to learn and has a lot of neat card designs that are unique to each and every set. But of …

Magic: the Gathering. Let’s Talk: Giant Monsters, Immense Synergies, and Explosive Combos: An Introduction to Elder Dragon Highlander/Commander.

Magic: the Gathering. Let’s Talk: The 1/15/18 Ban List Update, or “YAY, ROGUE REFINER IS BANNED- wait, what?”

  For those that have been following my blog, you may have noticed a common theme with all the deck techs that I've put out, and that is they have all been Modern cards. The closest thing to Standard I talked about was the "Starting Out In Competitive Magic, the Gathering. (Beginner’s Guide)" article where …

Magic: the Gathering. Let’s Talk: The Great Red, White, and Blue (Jeskai Tempo deck tech)

  One of my favorite color combinations is Jeskai (blue, red, white). This color combination allows you to control the opponents side of the battlefield while also giving you access to aggressive burn spells to finish them off. It is, in my mind, the ultimate tempo color combination. Jeskai was actually my first deck in …

Magic: the Gathering. Let’s talk: Ixalan Block, or “The Stampede of Pirate-Eating Dinosaur Gods”.

When I was a little kid (5-8 years of age), I had a huge fascination with dinosaurs. I actually thought they still existed because of Jurassic Park (oh, how naive I was not knowing CGI was a thing). Imagine the disappointment that I got when my folks told me that they are, indeed, extinct. Considering …
