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 […]

Heliod’s Pilgrim – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Heliod’s Pilgrim is a very interesting Human Cleric from Magic the Gathering’s 2015 Core Set. Later, the Pilgrim appeared as a reprint in Ultimate Masters and again returned to Standard for a bit in Theros Beyond Death. She costs 2W to cast for a 1/2, and when she enters the battlefield, search your library for […]

Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter is a Legendary Creature from Magic the Gathering’s Kaladesh set. This Human Artificer has been a two-of in Standard Green/White Aggro decks and is a decent card in a number of EDH decks. However, Oviya was a consistent bestseller during her Standard heydey on TCGPlayer. What made Oviya Pashiri so popular? […]

Hall of the Bandit Lord – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

The Kamigawa Block of Magic the Gathering had many very interesting Legendary Land cards. While many weren’t incredible in Standard competition back in the day, some would later become extremely good in Modern and Legacy. Most of the Legendary Kamigawa lands are extremely good in EDH / Commander. One of these Legendary utility lands with […]

Void Winnower – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Void Winnower from Magic the Gathering’s Battle for Zendikar set is quite an odd Eldrazi. All “can’t even” and other “odd” jokes aside, the mythic rare Winnower is pretty unique in its abilities. Nine mana for an 11/9 body is already pretty good. Being unable to be blocked by creatures with even converted mana costs […]
