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 […]

Merchant Ship – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

In early Magic the Gathering, you can find many examples of cards that were simply just not very good. Merchant Ship from Arabian Nights was a card that was never reprinted because it’s on the Reserved List. But, it doesn’t really matter, because it’s not very good.  Merchant Ship is a 0/2 creature that can’t […]

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

Now, we get a juicy new Phyrexian creature, complete with a denoted creature type, something players have been asking for years. The […]

Halvar, God of Battle / Sword of the Realms – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

We’ve seen how powerful the modal Double-Faced land cards were in Magic the Gathering’s Zendikar Rising. Having a spell that you could also play as a land has changed the competitive landscape forever. Kaldheim offers a brand new take on the modal cards with a creature that can also be an enchantment. But, this first […]

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 […]

Nissa, Nature’s Artisan – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Nissa, Nature’s Architect is an exclusive planeswalker from one of two Planeswalker Decks released with the Kaladesh set. These decks were the first two Planeswalker decks, which replaced the under-powered Intro Packs that used to come with the release of each new Standard-legal set. While this Nissa nor her Red counterpart Chandra, Pyrogenius are in […]
