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, […]

Ascendant Packleader – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

With all of the strong Wolves and Werewolves printed in Innistrad: Crimson Vow, none were really playable in the one drop spot. Fortunately, Crimson Vow offers a very good one-drop Wolf that could even work in other decks. At it’s very worst, Ascendant Packleader is a 2/1 for a single Green mana. But, if you […]

Cemetery Protector – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

One of the more confusing mythic rare cards printed in recent years, Cemetery Protector from Magic the Gathering’s Innistrad: Crimson Vow set may be more powerful than it first appears. It has a relatively unique ability and unlike many abilities that involve the graveyard, it doesn’t target. This will be very important once you see […]

Geralf, Visionary Stitcher – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Geralf, Visionary Stitcher had me at “Zombies you control have flying.” Sure, there have been flying Zombies in Magic the Gathering before, and you’ve been able to make any creature fly since the beginning of the game. But, a Legendary Creature who literally makes your Zombies fly, that’s new. Add to that Geralf is an […]

Dorothea, Vengeful Victim – A Magic the Gathering Review

The Disturb mechanic in Magic the Gathering was introduced in the Innistrad: Midnight Hunt set. It’s kind of neat to have Spirits that you can recast from your graveyard, essentially getting two uses out of them. The downside is that if it would be removed from the battlefield, it gets exiled instead of going back […]

Hallowed Haunting – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Perhaps it’s just a hobby of mine to over-analyze mythic rare Magic the Gathering cards destined for the local game store bulk bins, but Hallowed Haunting is one of those interesting niche Enchantments that may prove to be better than some people realize. While it seems like a card better suited for a block of […]

Alchemist’s Gambit – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

When Magic the Gathering revealed a new extra turn spell in the Innistrad: Crimson Vow set with Alchemist’s Gambit, players collectively groaned. After the fiasco that was Nexus of Fate and the misery that Alrund’s Epiphany created in late 2021 Standard, Magic players are getting somewhat allergic to extra turn spells. Nexus of Fate literally […]

Path of Peril – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Path of Peril is an interesting, however, potential niche, board wipe spell from Magic the Gathering’s Innistrad: Crimson Vow set. Three mana to wipe out all creatures with mana value two or less sounds like the perfect way to fight aggro decks. It does have an alternate casting cost, thanks to Cleave, that will destroy […]

Volatile Arsonist // Dire-Strain Anarchist – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Werewolves in Magic the Gathering gained a mass amount of support for their tribe with the release of the Innistrad: Midnight Hunt set. From Kessig Naturalist, to Tovolar, Dire Overlord, to Tovolar’s Huntmaster, and even to an artifact like The Celestus to control day and night, Werewolves have become not only a potential powerhouse in […]

Chandra, Dressed to Kill – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

With the release of the Innistrad: Crimson Vow set, Magic the Gathering fans were excited to see the return of the ever-popular planeswalker Chandra Nalaar to a regular Magic set for the first time since War of the Spark. She did make appearances in both Core Set 2020 and Core Set 2021, but the wedding […]
