Singing Tree – Magic the Gathering Card Review

Singing Tree from Magic the Gathering’s Arabian Night set may not be the most powerful card in the world. While a 0/3 Plant creature for 4 mana (three generic & one Green) seems underpowered, being able to reduce an attacking creature’s power to zero just by tapping certainly isn’t bad.   While it’s hardly as good […]

Elephant Graveyard – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Elephant Graveyard is one of the more interesting land cards ever printed in Magic the Gathering, appearing only in the Arabian Nights set. Not only can you tap it for a colorless mana, but you can also tap it to regenerate an Elephant or Mammoth. Regeneration allows you to tap a creature whenever it would […]

Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

The evil Phyrexians made a return to the Magic the Gathering scene in Kaldheim! Last time we saw the Phyrexians in a Standard-legal set, it was all the way back in New Phyrexia. Now, we get a juicy new Phyrexian creature, complete with a denoted creature type, something players have been asking for years. The […]

Surtland Flinger – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Kaldheim may be one of the most tribal focused sets ever released for the Magic the Gathering card game. In particular, the Giants tribe gained a number of interesting cards, one of which is Surtland Flinger. Like its counterpart in Blue, Surtland Elementalist, the Flinger is available only in the Theme and Set boosters, not […]

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 […]

Nissa’s Renewal – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

At first glance, Nissa’s Renewal from Magic the Gathering’s Battle for Zendikar set appears to be a worse version of the popular ramp card, Boundless Realms. It could also be a slightly better Nissa’s Expedition or Peregrination. Although Nissa’s Expedition had Convoke on it which could lower its casting cost by tapping creatures you controlled, […]

Exotic Orchard – Every Magic the Gathering Card Has a Story

“It was a strange morning. When we awoke, we found our trees transformed. We didn’t know whether to water them or polish them.” —Pulan, Bant orchardist Exotic Orchard is a very useful Land card from Magic the Gathering’s Conflux set. This Land is so useful that it’s been blessed with nine printings, most of those […]

Burning-Rune Demon – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Burning-Rune Demon is a mythic rare Demon Berserker creature card from Magic the Gathering’s Kaldheim set. Its enter-the-battlefield ability allows you to find two cards with different names from your library not named Burning-Rune Demon. Your opponent then chooses one of those cards to put in your graveyard and the other card goes into your […]

Araumi of the Dead Tide – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

With the release of Commander Legends, Magic the Gathering has entered a brave new world where Legendary Creatures printed at uncommon can make a dramatic impact on the competitive game. Sure, we’ve had legendary creatures printed at the uncommon rarity before, starting in Champions of Kamigawa and later in Dominaria. Commander Legends put the uncommon […]
