The constructed Pauper
format is in full bloom on Magic Online. I'll take you through a rundown of the
most popular decks at the moment, be they aggro, control or combo complete with
a live 2 man event. For those who haven't tried slinging commons yet, this is a
recipe that should get your juices flowing.
This weekend GP Providence
is happening, and it is going to be huge. I expect Merfolk to be a strong
choice for the event. Its financial accessibility and straightforward game plan
make it an attractive Legacy option for a lot of players. But what exactly does
a post-NPH Merfolk deck look like, and what is its plan against the field?
So, as GP Prague loomed, the fact that I’ve been living here 2 years
seemed like a perfect recipe to get as many Irish people to Prague as possible
for one hell of a party weekend …and also they get to play a Grand Prix…

I'm going to talk about the 10 players that I've played in my Magic
career who have impressed me the most. It would be virtually impossible to say
that these are the ten best players I've played, or that the order of them
would be entirely accurate, but I know that after playing each of these matches
I was left with a strong impression of how skillful they are.
A close friend of mine
brought up the subject of quitting Magic entirely. This got me to thinking, is
there any circumstance in life that could ever get me to stop playing Magic? I
thought about this question for weeks and after playing out all the scenarios
in my head and listening carefully to what everyone else had to say, I came to
In this installment of
Battle School, Richard Bland battles against level 7 mage Jeremy Neeman. The two pros cover one of the most important matchups of the
current Standard format and play 20 games against each other. They identify key
plays, share their sideboarding strategies, update the decklists, and tell you
how to win the matchup. If you're looking to master the Standard format, this
is the article series for you!
New Phyrexia, and the printing of Deceiver
Exarch, has created a new archetype based around the Exarch-Splinter Twin
interaction. Today, I want to cover 3 interesting takes on this combo, and how
each of them can be evaluated before you decide whether it is the type of
Exarch deck for you.
Jumping into Magic the Gathering after so many set have been made can be a little confusing. Maybe you have a friend who plays and you want to get into it and go to the store instead of a card shop and you see a bunch of different sets. There's Time Sspiral, and Kamigawa. Maybe even some 10th edition on the shelves mixed in with Scars of Mirrodin and some Zendikar. What do you buy? Where do you start. First of all no matter what you buy you'll be able to play with a casual deck with some friends. So don't get too bent out of shape.
Today I bring you a very fun and very budget deck to play at your local FNM. In this article I present the underdogs of New Phyrexia and how they can overcome the far more powerful cards in today's meta.
Every card in the budget version of the deck is under $5 USD mint/near mint, easily acquired and not a mythic. In fact, most of this deck isn't rare.
This past weekend the
first major tournaments with New Phyrexia have taken place. While in Legacy,
Mental Misstep lived up to the expectations, Standard didn’t see such a clear
superstar rise to the top. So what new cards found their way into the top Standard decks?
What new strategies succeeded? How will Standard adapt to the new threats?
