Esika’s Chariot – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

There are many reasons to love Esika’s Chariot, a Legendary Vehicle Artifact from Magic the Gathering’s Kaldheim set. First, it features Cats, which is going to make plenty of people a fan right away. But, secondly, it’s also one of the most playable Vehicles printed so far. For four mana, Esika’s Chariot brings with it […]

Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire is a Demon Rogue creature from Magic the Gathering’s Kaldheim set. Rogues have become a fairly powerful tribe in Magic thanks to Zendikar Rising’s Merfolk Windrobber and Soaring Thought-Thief, as well as the Thieves’ Guild Enforcer from the Magic 2021 Core Set. As if the Rogue tribe needed another weapon, they get […]

The Trolls’ Awakening – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Since the release of Sagas in Magic the Gathering with the Dominaria set, these “storytelling” enchantments have generally been playable. Players who love land destruction are particularly excited by The Trolls’ Awakening which appears to have a potential win condition stapled to the final Chapter. But, is this Saga as good as some deck brewers […]

Trostani’s Summoner – Every Magic Card Has a Story

Trostani’s Summoner was an extended art promotional card for the Magic the Gathering set Dragon’s Maze. She was also printed at the uncommon rarity in the set proper. While the set wasn’t well received at the time, Dragon’s Maze has since become a reliable source of cards to complement some fun strategies. One of these […]

Valki, God of Lies // Tibalt, Cosmic Imposter – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

When it was revealed that the planeswalker Tibalt would be featured in Magic the Gathering’s Kaldheim set, I’m not sure many people expected him to be featured on a modal double faced card. Not only is this the best Tibalt planeswalker card by far, but he even masquerades as a two mana black Legendary God […]

Alrund’s Epiphany – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Extra turn spells in Magic the Gathering have always found themselves to be useful in some capacity. Of course, Time Walk for two mana was a bit absurd, but other extra turn spells printed since then have often been good enough to further certain strategies over the years. Alrund’s Epiphany from the Kaldheim set does […]

Niko Aris – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Niko Aris, Magic the Gathering’s first nonbinary planeswalker, makes their debut in the Kaldheim set. They have some very interesting abilities as a three-mana walker that gets better as the game goes on. Their mana cost includes X, as well as a base mana cost of two Blue and one White mana. The X cost […]

Invasion of the Giants – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

For all the fun that playing Giant Tribal decks in Magic the Gathering can be, they often find themselves not doing very much for the first few turns of a game. That’s because the best stuff they have to do often doesn’t start until turn four or so. The Saga Enchantment from Kaldheim called Invasion […]

Rise of the Dread Marn – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Rise of the Dread Marn is an Instant spell from Magic the Gathering’s Kaldheim set, which is a fine example of the power that the Foretell mechanic can have on a game. On its face, it’s a three-mana spell that creates X 2/2 Black Zombie creature tokens where X is the number of nontoken creatures […]

Exotic Orchard – Every Magic 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 […]
