Ankh of Mishra – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Playing lands is one of the most important parts of playing Magic the Gathering. The artifact card Ankh of Mishra punishes players just for playing them.

Wight of Precinct Six – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Most cards printed in Magic the Gathering aren’t ever going to be played in top-tier competitive decks. However, in the case of Wight of Precinct Six, this Zombie creature did see some fringe Standard play at one point. Since then, he’s become a Kitchen Table Magic hit, too.

Essence of the Wild – 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 […]
