Magic the Gathering card reviews and competitive analysis

Can an Enigma Drake Deck Still Be Competitive in Magic the Gathering?

If you’ve been playing Magic: the Gathering since around the Theros set, you may remember a card called Spellheart Chimera. So, Enigma Drake from Amonkhet (and Magic 2019) may look very familiar. Both creatures fly and their power is equal to the number of instant and sorcery cards in your graveyard. Whereas the Chimera has […]

How Does Astral Cornucopia Work – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Astral Cornucopia is a fascinating little mana ramp card from Magic: the Gathering’s Born of the Gods expansion set. It has a triple X cost, which already seems a bit janky. So how does this card work? It enters the battlefield with X charge counters on it. This means that if you want one counter, […]

Waking the Trolls – 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 Waking the Trolls which appears to have a potential win condition stapled to the final Chapter. But, is this Saga as good as some deck brewers […]

Blessed Alliance – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Blessed Alliance is a perfect example of a card with the Escalate mechanic which was new and unique to the Eldritch Moon set, the second of two sets in the Shadows Over Innistrad block. Right away, players saw this card as a strictly better version of Celestial Flare with its ability to force an opponent […]

Toski, Bearer of Secrets – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Magic the Gathering Commander players have been screaming for a true leader for Squirrel tribal for many years. Kaldheim finally brought Squirrel lovers a Christmas gift when Toski, Bearer of Secrets was revealed. Better yet, while Toski is an awesome Squirrel, his abilities are versatile enough to go into many Commander decks. Of course, most […]

Chameleon Colossus – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Chameleon Colossus has always been a fairly valuable Magic the Gathering card. It was originally printed in Morningtide and saw some play in Standard back then. With his versatility and power level, the Colossus has remained popular in tribal decks in casual “Kitchen Table” Magic, EDH, and even Modern. The price of Chameleon Colossus dropped […]

Adeliz, the Cinder Wind – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

“(Insert name of uncommon legend creature here) is good” could easily be a theme in the Dominaria set. But, Adeliz, the Cinder Wind is actually quite good. Even as an uncommon, Adeliz quickly found herself on buylists for bulk rare price or even slightly higher. She also has had a positive demand curve. Adeliz, the […]

Cleaving Reaper – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Before the printing of the Kaldheim set, Magic the Gathering hadn’t printed an Angel creature which was mono-Black. One of these Black Angel creatures is the Cleaving Reaper. Like another Angel being released in the set, Valkyrie Harbinger, the Reaper is only available in Theme, Set, and Collector boosters. The Reaper is an Angel Berserker […]
