Good morning Magic Middlers! Confessional: at first I was not sold on Ikoria. Lots of big beasts, some of them nigh overpowered, coupled with some planeswalkers that were likewise, overpowered. Set just reeked of commercialism (Godzilla? Hello!?). I am not a huge fan of crossovers, so this was defin...

Good morning Magic Midwives of Misery! It has been a while... understatement! Very busy despite the COVID-19 shutdowns; I am still working remotely as a middle school teacher and my kids are home as well. That said, it took me time to get into the new set and brew up something truly nasty. Before Ik...

Good afternoon Magic Magpies! So, by this point, everyone and their brothers are clamoring for Oko, Thief of Crowns to be banned in Standard and it could very well be. It should not be, it is no Field of the Dead, there are answers to him and they do not involve bending the Meta to do so. This deck ...

Good morrow Magic Malbec lovers! Boros has been a favored color combo for me since the original Ravnica came out. I like its ferocity, cheap creatures, and spells that can heal or harm. Basically, this color combo suits my flexible style. Now with Eldraine in full force, we have wonderful ...

Good evening Magic Marauders! It has been a while since I have done a write-up and I hope it has been worth the wait! Dimir has always been a favorite of mine to play: its Surveil stuff, overall trickery, removal, it is just a great color combination. It is also a combination that can steal other pe...

Good day Magic Malcontents! It has been a while. Between school ramping up, my daughter's soccer (and my middle school's soccer) team shifting into full gear, dance classes for my kids 2 nights per week, chess commitments, etc., my own devotion to MTG Arena has been spotty at best. I have been getti...

Good morning Magic Minders of Business! Today I bring to you a take on a deck that is starting to take off: Sultai Elementals. Except, we are not running a ton of elementals in this deck, so let's call it Sultai Aggro for now! The main purpose of this deck is to get down some early beefy bois & ...

Mean Green Mono Green

Good afternoon Magic Malcontents (yeah, let's settle on that!). Last week I posted a Mono Green deck that did well in casual play but was getting absolutely stomped in competitive ranked play. Being the responsible content creator that I am, I updated the deck based on some of the other content crea...

Ral, it's a 3/2 flyer with haste and reanimation in a deck with a lot of instants and sorceries. Good stuff IMHO! Thanks for your observation. :)...

Good morrow Magic Magpies! Risendragon here with my take on a rotation-proof (RP) Izzet Phoenix build. Those that have followed me and my deck building know that I love to experiment and brew and this is one brew that I feel has potential in a post-Ixalan/Dominaria rotation. This archetype has made ...

Rumored MTG Arena Release date 2019? Is the game ready?
Great article. I would love to start an eSports team at my school with Arena being a central focus. However, with the current client, I do not think it is feasible. Time shall tell!...

Blakeizen, Omnath is really not a centerpiece so he has been very good so far. The supporting role is just right for him as I save up my Mythics! Thanks for the like, I am going to do a video on this one soon!...

Ah good evening Magic Mudslingers! It has been a while for sure, with school ending and a trip to visit family in Texas, things have been insanely busy in my house and thus, not a lot of time for MTG Arena. That and my laptop has decided that running Arena is not a priority and frequently crashes it...

Pro vs Schmo -or- It's not RNG it's you.
I fall into category 4 for sure but have aspirations for 2 and 3. I realize that my time to get to category 1 is probably shot but at least maybe my two kids will get the chance to get there if they choose to do so. Very good article, I like your style!...
