Pheres-Band Warchief – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

If you were ever thinking of building a Centaur Tribal deck in Magic the Gathering, the Centaur tribe does have a few good things going for it. Centaurs actually do have a lord creature: Pheres-Band Warchief from Journey Into Nyx. This Warchief gives his fellow Centaurs not only +1/+1, but also both trample and vigilance. […]

Sanguine Sacrament – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Gaining life is a very popular thing to do in Magic the Gathering. While most life-gain specific cards don’t become widely adopted in competitive play, they are a huge part of casual “kitchen table” Magic. However, there is a lot to like about Sanguine Sacrament, an instant from the Ixalan set. Not only can this […]

Dragonlord’s Prerogative – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Always wanted a draw card for your Magic the Gathering Dragon deck that can’t be countered? With the instant-speed spell card Dragonlord’s Prerogative, you have just that! If you have a Dragon in hand as you cast it or have one already in play, you’re in luck. Essentially, this takes an old draw spell called […]

Righteous Valkyrie – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Righteous Valkyrie is an Angel Cleric creature from Magic the Gathering’s Kaldheim set. Playing into both Angel and Cleric strategies, the Valkyrie can allow some decks to easily overpower others, even opposing aggressive strategies. As a big fan of Cleric Tribal decks, it was clear to me that Righteous Valkyrie is a tricky creature that […]

Perplexing Chimera – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

There are, of course, plenty of ridiculous shenanigans that could abound with this card. It reads: “Whenever an opponent casts a spell, you may exchange control […]

Chandra, Pyrogenius – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Chandra, Pyrogenius is one of two planeswalkers exclusive to the new Planeswalker Decks series which began with Kaladesh. These replace the old Intro Packs which were always rather underpowered to begin with. While you won’t find this Chandra or her Green counterpart Nissa, Nature’s Artisan in the actual Kaladesh set, both are considered cards that […]

Heroes’ Bane – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Heroes’ Bane wasn’t an exciting pre-release promo card for Magic the Gathering’s Journey into Nyx set. As with many pre-release promos at the time, they were chosen with an eye on making them playable in Limited – drafts and sealed deck. For Limited purposes, Heroes’ Bane is pretty good. Also, being a Hydra, Heroes’ Bane […]

Chromanticore – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

For the first time since 2009, Born of the Gods introduced a new five-color card into Magic the Gathering, Chromanticore. Unfortunately, it’s not a Legendary Creature. However, every one immediately talked about how this Chromanticore could be a pretty sweet Commander, especially considering that it has Bestow on it! How interesting would it be to […]
