Good evening Magic Muppets! Second night in a row and I get to post a deck that I have seen a lot of videos on lately, namely from AliasV and AlwaysBoltTheBird: Azorius Flyers. Except I am renaming it Azorius Airforce and my tweak has some interesting additions as well as some typical flyers on...

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. So Grixis has always been a thing for me and I experimented quite a bit when WAR first came out with t...

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...

Good evening Magic Midrange Aficionados! Hope you all had a good Monday and are settling in for a well-deserved rest at the end of the beginning of your work week.

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

Good evening Magic Mavericks! War of the Spark has been out almost a week now and I have been having so much fun playing with these new toys. Just a great set, everyone said it would be OP and some of it is but I have not really walked away from many games feeling cheated (by a turn three kill) or u...

Good morning Magic Mowus! War of the Spark has not disappointed at all! Got in on the 50 for 50 deal (unbeknownst to the wife shhhh), used coin and gems to procure 108 packs of WAR and I could not be more thrilled. Yes, I had to burn some rares and mythics to get Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and some oth...

So, just as I was about to post my summary for this deck around 850 this morning, the power went out! Gusty winds have been wreaking havoc across New England today. Anyways, Grixis has always been a deck that I have been curious about playing but never really had the tools to do so on Arena. From my...
