Sanguine Sacrament – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Gaining life is a very popular thing to do in Magic the Gathering. While most life-gain specific cards don’t become widely adopted in competitive play, they are a huge part of casual “kitchen table” Magic. However, there is a lot to like about Sanguine Sacrament, an instant from the Ixalan set.  Not only can this […]

Winterflame – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Winterflame from Magic the Gathering’s Khans of Tarkir set is no Fire // Ice. Whereas Fire // Ice, a popular Legacy card, was a split card which let you choose which half to cast, Winterflame gives you the ability to get one or both effects. Most of the time, you would choose both. But it’s […]

Ghoultree – A Magic the Gathering EDH Card Review

Ghoultree is one of my favorite rares in Magic the Gathering’s Dark Ascension set. I don’t think it’s hard to see why. Yes, it costs 8 mana to cast, but it’s a 10/10 Zombie Treefolk (awesome creature type combination, by the way) that costs 1 less to cast for each creature card in your graveyard. […]

Matter Reshaper – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

With the printing of Modern Masters 2017, plenty of Magic the Gathering cards often played in the Modern format saw huge drops in price due to their being reprinted in the set. This led to Modern decks being built at an astonishing rate, including Eldrazi Ramp. One of the cards featured in that highly competitive […]

Worst Fears – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Worst Fears was playable in Standard. Is it good in other formats like EDH? Worst Fears is a mythic rare card from Magic the Gathering’s Journey into Nyx set. A quick look at the card from veteran Magic players saw the popular effect of the Mirrodin artifact Mindslaver on a sorcery. That seems pretty good, […]

Helm of the Gods – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Helm of the Gods is an equipment from the Magic Origins set that costs only 1 mana to cast with an equip cost of only 1 mana. The Helm gives its equipped creature +1/+1 for each enchantment you control. In decks that live and die with Enchantments, this artifact is definitely worth considering. Does it […]

Bloodforged Battle-Axe – A Magic the Gathering Commander Card Review

The Commander 2017 pre-constructed decks for Magic the Gathering introduced a number of strong cards for the Commander format. One of these is a one-mana Equipment called Bloodforged Battle-Axe. It’s like an improved version of Bonesplitter, except that this axe can actually copy itself! At only 1 mana to cast and 2 mana to equip, […]

Saheeli Rai & Felidar Guardian Combo – A Magic the Gathering Infinite Combo Profile

On April 27, 2017, Magic the Gathering found it necessary to urgently ban the card Felidar Guardian in the game’s most popular competitive format at the time, known as Standard. This emergency ban was necessary due to the Saheeli Rai & Felidar Guardian Infinite combo decks – also known as the Copy Cat combo – […]

Neheb the Eternal – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Early returns on Hour of Devastation indicated that it wasn’t one of the most “valuable” Magic the Gathering sets of recent years. Of course, there are some good, playable cards in the set that trended positively when it came to singles sales. One of these is the Red mythic rare Legendary Minotaur, Neheb, the Eternal. […]

Seraph of the Sword – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Many Magic the Gathering players have an affinity for Angel cards – although they do not affect players’ casting costs. With Seraph of the Sword from the Magic 2014 Core Set, we have an Angelic version of Fog Bank for 4 mana that conveniently has no Defender on it. Would she prove to be a […]
