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, at least in EDH. As the lead card in one of the two Commander decks released with Kaldheim, the four mana Legendary creature instantly appeared […]

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 […]

Kardur, Doomscourge – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Magic the Gathering has had many Legendary Creatures over the years printed at uncommon, dating all the way back to Legends, but not having any appear between then and Champions of Kamigawa. Betrayers of Kamigawa and Saviors of Kamigawa continued the trend of uncommon legendary cards. Then, we saw no more until Dominaria and yet […]

Dragonkin Berserker – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Dragonkin Berserker is a two-mana Human Berserker creature card from Magic the Gathering’s Kaldheim set. At first glance, Dragonkin Berserker reminds long-time Magic players of a couple other creatures who create Dragon creature tokens, namely Dragon Whisperer and Dragonmaster Outcast. Neither of those creatures panned out the way many players expected them to, although the […]

Deflecting Palm Explained – A Magic the Gathering FAQ

Deflecting Palm is an instant spell card from Magic the Gathering’s Khans of Tarkir set. It has some of the best artwork in the set, featuring the now-famous Narset, leader of the Jeskai clan, who would soon after gain her planeswalker spark. Beyond the great artwork of Narset “showing the Hand” to an incoming fist, […]
