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 & ...

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...

Good morrow Magic Mulligan Lovers! Been a while since I have done a write-up, lots going on at school and at the home front so time to get decks built, tested, and uploaded are few and far between.

Good evening Magic McGillicuddys! Finally getting around to doing a write-up on this take on a trend in Standard. So, Esper, you either really love it or you really hate it, whether you are playing it or playing against it. I personally hate playing it and playing against it, too controlly for me. O...

Good afternoon Magic Meddlers! Just a writeup on my lunch break on a deck that I posted last night. First off, AliasV totally rocks and her (Mengucci's actually) Four-Colored Dreadhorde deck looks amazing to play. Problem is, I have never been a huge fan of four-colored decks, too expensive and too ...

Good morrow Magic Malcontents! One of the more recent developments in the MTG meta has been the introduction of the "Superfriends" concept. Basically, you take a bunch of planeswalkers and craft a deck around them while exploiting their powers to your advantage. You can do this for just about any de...

This deck comes from Grace Naces (@coLSylvanHunter) and it is a Bant Mi...
