Wizards of the Coast is an American games publisher founded by Peter Adkison in 1990 just outside Seattle, WA. The company mainly publishes table top games in the fantasy and science-fiction genres.
Wizards of the Coast started as a basement-run RPG publisher and popularized the collectible card game genre thanks to the success of Magic: The Gathering. They are also known for publishing the Dungeons & Dragons RPG after purchasing the original D&D developer TSR in the mid-1990s. Until 2003, Wizards published the licensed Pokémon Trading Card Game.
Theyalso publish novels based on games such as Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, and Legend of the Five Rings.
Wizards of the Coast has been a subsidiary of Hasbro since 1999.

Happy December 1st, loyal readers! Winter is steadily creeping towards us and with it high expectations for the new year, higher hopes for new opportunities, and higher heating bills. Brr! To help us begin to adapt to the idea of a whole new year (albeit a month early), we at Bleeding Cool have another Commander […]
Today, I’m offering you a Magic: The Gathering decklist you can’t refuse. I’m going to try to make the messages behind this Commander deck tech as clear as a horse head at the foot of your bed. Capische? As an addition to the end-of-month fun we had with Mary O’Kill and her beloved pet Killbots […]
Happy end of November, loyal readers! We at Bleeding Cool get that November has been long-winded, cold, and unforgiving, much like our end-of-month Magic: The Gathering deck techs for the Commander format. Personally, I think that as the months go by and winter rears its ugly head, it’ll be great to just duck into our coats […]
Happy Turkey Day to all our loyal readers from Bleeding Cool! After we wrote up our Oko, Thief of Crowns Magic: The Gathering deck tech (days in advance of Thanksgiving, to be frank), we figured you’d all probably have room for seconds. So, we cooked up another batch of deck techs for those with a more… insatiable […]

With the holidays on the way, we thought we’d revisit a product for those looking to get into Dungeons & Dragons with their Essentials Kit. When you first take a look at D&D in general, sometimes it can be daunting. The books, the knowledge, the planning, the character creation. When you get it you just […]
Wizards of the Coast has done it again! They have successfully hidden a product from its consumers until the very moment it matters for public consumption. Last time, it was Magic: The Gathering‘s “Mystery Boosters”; this time, they’ve finally revealed their new project for Magic: Secret Lair. For those of you who somehow missed my last article […]
Hey there friends and loyal readers of Bleeding Cool‘s segments on Magic: The Gathering! When I covered the Gods of Amonkhet over the course of the past few weeks, I did so with a purpose: I wanted to segue into a discussion of the Gods of Theros. And, now that the talk of Amonkheti deities is out […]
A few weeks ago, prior to MagicFest Richmond, we at Bleeding Cool reported on the existence of the Mystery Booster product for Magic: The Gathering, essentially a grab-bag of a product which had in it cards from most of Magic‘s 26-year history. Additionally, when it was unveiled at MagicFest Richmond at long last, it was revealed to also […]
You may remember my article from August covering Emiel van Daele‘s find of a misprinted “Mystic Intellect” deck from Commander 2019. This rare Magic: The Gathering deck had been printed with both sides of the printing on one face of each and every nonfoil card. We had interviewed Emiel and his colleague, Charly Traarbach, back then and inquired […]
After one heck of a long week since the novel’s release, Wizards of the Coast has finally issued a statement apologizing for the seeming erasure of character Chandra Nalaar’s bisexuality in Greg Weisman‘s book “War of the Spark: Forsaken”.

Welcome (or in many cases, welcome back) to our Magic: The Gathering deck tech analyses of the Amonkheti gods and the grim, grisly fates that took four out of the five of them (or is that the eight of them? The verdict is out). Currently, we are covering the fate of poor Rhonas, the “indomitable” snake-headed god of […]
