Magic the Gathering card reviews and competitive analysis

Necroduality – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Zombies have long been a popular tribe in Magic the Gathering, and for quite some time, Blue & Black Zombies have made noise in Commander. In the original Innistrad days, mono-Black Zombies were a dominant force in competitive play. Now, Blue and Black Zombies may once again gain a competitive edge in not just Standard, […]

Liliana, Dreadhorde General – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

When some Magic the Gathering players first saw Liliana, Dreadhorde General, they saw a 6-mana planeswalker that may not have much of an impact in Standard. However, this Liliana planeswalker card should not be overlooked. Not only does she have three loyalty abilities, but a static ability, as well. Six-mana planeswalkers have made an impact […]

Kyodai, Soul of Kamigawa – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Kyodai, Soul of Kamigawa is a White Dragon Spirit creature from Magic the Gathering’s Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty set. While its Red counterpart, Atsushi the Blazing Sky, is certainly flashier, Kyodai has its own interesting attributes. It has both Flash and Flying and costs four mana to cast, with three of its value requiring just generic […]

Runeforge Champion – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Runeforge Champion is a Dwarf Warrior creature card from Magic the Gathering’s Kaldheim set. As a creature whose utility depends greatly on a specific type of card, in this case Runes, I decided to pass judgment on Runeforge Champion until we knew what Runes actually were. With the reveal of Rune of Ascension, we discovered […]

Is the Midnight Gond Combo in Magic the Gathering Still Good in 2022?

I’ll never forget when I first learned about the Midnight Guard and Presence of Gond combo in Magic the Gathering. It was actually while I was picking through the bulk boxes at my local game store. While I was hoarding Utopia Sprawl and other useful common and uncommon cards, one guy was hoarding specifically Midnight […]

Sarulf, Realm Eater – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

When some Magic the Gathering veteran players first read Sarulf, Realm Eater, they saw an effect very similar to Ratchet Bomb, except with +1/+1 counters. Ratchet Bomb was a powerful card in Magic the Gathering in multiple competitive formats, and still sees some play in Modern today. It allows you to tap it to charge […]

Lathril, Blade of the Elves – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Magic the Gathering players gained plenty of new Elves cards to play with in the Kaldheim set. But, none may be as truly impactful as Lathril, Blade of the Elves. As the lead card in one of the two Commander decks released with Kaldheim, the four mana Legendary creature instantly appeared an obvious choice to […]

Can the Best Blue Eyes White Dragon Deck Win in 2022?

It turns out that Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel provides among its starter deck options the inklings of a Blue Eyes White Dragon deck that can win in 2022! Blue-Eyes White Dragon is easily the most recognizable of all monsters from the Yu-Gi-Oh Trading Card Game, besides perhaps Dark Magician. Both monsters have gained amazing amounts of […]

Graven Lore – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Graven Lore is a Snow instant spell card from Magic the Gathering’s Kaldheim set. It’s similar to a few draw cards that we’ve seen in the past that have popped up in competitive play. This card is reminiscent of Precognitive Perception from Ravnica Allegiance. That card drew you three cards for five mana, but allowed […]
