"Magic: The Gathering" Bans Cards From Standard, Pauper

“Magic: The Gathering” Bans Cards From Standard, Pauper

Hey folks! Do you all remember that ban list announcement that Wizards pushed from November 18th to October 21st? Well, it’s October 21st, so I guess it’s time that some cards were put on the chopping block. Hot on the heels of Mythic Championship V, despite not being won by a deck that used it […]

"Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

“Yorvo, Lord Of Garenbrig” Deck Tech – “Magic: The Gathering”

Magic: The Gathering has been around for 26 years. It is older than many real-life issues, and even some celebrities. But do you know what is older than Magic? The Green Giant. Yes, the Green Giant brand of canned vegetables. Those icky, slimy green beans and corn that my parents force-fed me at a very young age- […]

The latest esports player to test the Hong Kong protest waters is Lee Shi Tian, who was competing this weekend in the Mythic Championship V.

Enjoying Arena, and How You Should Too - "Magic: The Gathering"

Wizards’ October “State Of The Game” For “Magic: The Gathering: Arena”

Wizards of the Coast, hot on the heels of the glaring success of Magic: The Gathering: Arena, has issued another “State of the Game” article for the software. They did the same in September, and it seems that it was a much more triumphant article than this month’s piece. The first thing that was addressed by […]

Journey Into the "Gaslands", Part 4

Hobby: Building The War Rig For “Gaslands: Refuelled”

Gaslands: Refuelled is a game very unlike most any other I’ve played. Set in a Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic world where gas is the ultimate currency, Gaslands takes wasteland entertainment to a whole new level. While it shares a few similarities with Games Workshop’s Aeronautica Imperialis (which I reviewed here a month ago), Gaslands manages to take similar […]

"Torbran, Thane of Red Fell" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

“Torbran, Thane Of Red Fell” Deck Tech – “Magic: The Gathering”

When I say Magic: The Gathering is without question my favorite game, I mean that beyond the shadow of a doubt. I love the fantasy themes blended with the underscoring tropes of modern science-fiction, I love the characters and setting, and I love the gameplay. When I say that my favorite color of Magic is black by […]

Wizards of the Coast Reveals 2 Set Dates for "Magic: The Gathering"

Wizards Of The Coast Reveal Two Set Dates For “Magic: The Gathering”

Magic: The Gathering has had a ton of new releases each year. Generally, expansion sets release each quarter, and other products release during the months not associated with those releases (though there are some glaring exceptions, such as the Brawl decks releasing with the Throne of Eldraine set as a whole). It has been revealed […]

"Oathbreaker" Ban List Updated - "Magic: The Gathering"

“Oathbreaker” Ban List Updated – “Magic: The Gathering”

This past Friday (October 11th), the WeirdCards Charitable Club members responsible for the Oathbreaker ban list decided to do something amazing for the format: they unbanned Recurring Nightmare, one of the most controversially-powerful cards still on the Commander ban list. Recurring Nightmare is a three-mana enchantment that, if not countered, can potentially evade all removal […]

Wizards of the Coast Unveils "Unsanctioned" - "Magic: The Gathering"

Wizards Of The Coast Unveils “Unsanctioned” – “Magic: The Gathering”

Well, I’m at an unending loss for words. Probably with no credit to Bleeding Cool for our deck tech on The Grand Calcutron or the upcoming Halloween deck tech for Grusilda, Monster Masher, Wizards of the Coast has unveiled their newest silver-bordered set for Magic: The Gathering. Called “Unsanctioned”, this set contains five 30-card mini-decks with silver-bordered, completely […]

Journey Into the "Gaslands", Part 4

Hobby: Journey Of A “Gaslands” Newcomer, Part 4

Hey all! So, because it’s been a few weeks of me writing weekly articles pertaining to Gaslands: Refuelled, I reckon I am no longer a “Newcomer” to the Gaslands. I just wanted to quickly explain the retitling of this story segment before diving into my fifth and final car, and then detailing my first game […]

"Questing Beast" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

“Questing Beast” Deck Tech – “Magic: The Gathering”

Magic: The Gathering is chock-full of monsters – from Dragons, to Centaurs, to Merfolk and Leviathans, Magic has more than its share of interesting and complex creatures. Sometimes, however, some of these creatures are a little too hard to index. These creatures are often shoehorned into the categorical creature type of “Beast”, which oftentimes doesn’t do […]

Review: Dungeons & Dragons - Baldur's Gate: Descent Into Avernus

Review: Dungeons & Dragons – Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus

There are very few places in Dungeons & Dragons lore that make players loathe their previous choices. The Nine Hells are probably at the top of the list. Oh sure, there’s a pantheon of places people don’t really want to go when it comes right down to it, because big dungeons and nasty dragons scare […]

"Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage" Deck Tech - "Magic: The Gathering"

“Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage” Deck Tech – “Magic: The Gathering”
