Hydra Broodmaster – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

When Hydra Broodmaster was first revealed during Journey into Nyx spoiler season, Magic the Gathering Hydra fans were quick to salivate over her. It’s hard not to like a 7/7 for 4GG (6 mana), which is already above average. However, the Monstrosity ability in a Mono-Green Devotion deck or Kruphix, God of Horizons ramp deck […]

Dragon Arch – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Magic: the Gathering’s Apocalypse set has some interesting commons and uncommons, including Goblin Ringleader, Sylvan Messenger, Fire // Ice, and Gerrard’s Verdict. But, one card to definitely not overlook is an artifact called Dragon Arch. For 5 mana, you are able to drop a multicolored creature onto the battlefield for the cost of only a […]

Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

As if the Rogue tribe needed another weapon, they get […]

Sure, the exclusive planeswalkers featured with the decks are vastly under-powered compared to their expansion set counterparts. But, they are certainly interesting and still sought after by many players […]

While the effect of Myriad is useless in one-on-one Magic, in multiplayer Commander games, this Blade can be extremely powerful if equipped to the right creature. This Blade gives the equipped creature Myriad, which means for each player beyond the […]

Four-Color Approach of the Second Sun Deck – A Magic the Gathering Deck Profile

As a Magic: the Gathering player who loves instant win conditions built into cards, it shouldn’t be surprising that I’m a big fan of Approach of the Second Sun. It’s a deceptively simple win condition that this Amonkhet sorcery offers, too. It costs 7 mana to cast (6W) and gains you 7 life. That doesn’t […]
