Today I will try to write something techy for a change by going over my favorite archetype in Scars of Mirrodin draft (the one I "force" if possible) and see how the new set might change how you approach it.

Time and Tempo

In my first article I'd like to try to talk about the concept of time within the context of Magic. I shall try to examine how the game can be perceived, not in terms of life (or poison) but in terms of inevitability, of age, growth and death.

I hope you have been enjoying the Prereleases and Release Events as much as I have. In the wake of a new set's release you can hardly move for comprehensive set reviews. Here are a few of the new cards that I feel have been overlooked and underappreciated by many, and some I think that just won't live up to people's expectations.

You have the unique opportunity to ask Level 5 judge Riccardo Tessitori all the questions you want to!

You can ask him questions concerning rules problems, the life of a level 5 judge, DCI policies, interesting tournament situations and anything else you want to ask him!

I want to suggest something interesting this week. I've been discussing a very slight alteration to the rules of Magic for awhile with friends, and all agree that it's a proposal that Wizards should at least consider. I really think implementing this would make Magic a better game, in the sense of being both more interesting and more skill-intensive, and it's not exactly earth-shattering in its consequences - in most games, you won't even notice...

A lack of resources in tournament preparation is a reality for many players, and there are things you can do to efficiently prepare with the time you have.  Today I'm going to describe some of the methods I use to prepare for tournaments, describing my approach to getting ready for a tournament as a function of how much time I can devote to that event, ranging from nearly no time to infinite time.

So Chicago's under a few feet of snow, school is closed, so now I have plenty of time for brewin'! Unfortunately I was unable to attend the Mirrodin Besieged prerelease due to exam week, but that hasn't stopped me from trying my luck at some new decklists complete with these new additions. Today, I want to share some of those decklists with you and talk about their viability in their respective formats.
