Bogbrew Witch – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Bogbrew Witch is part of a very interesting three card combo built into Magic the Gathering’s 2014 Core Set. Later, they would reprint all three cards in the Iconic Masters set, as well. Known as the Festering Newt combo, it has to do with a common creature card, Festering Newt (a functional reprint of the […]

Court of Cunning – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Court of Cunning from Commander Legends appeared to be a staple for mill decks in Magic the Gathering. Right away, Commander players took advantage of the Enchantment’s obvious interactions with graveyard-happy Commanders like Araumi of the Dead Tide and mill-centered Commanders like Anowon, the Ruin Thief and Phenax, God of Deception.  Strangely enough, though, during […]

Rakdos Pit Dragon – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Printed in May 2006’s Magic the Gathering Dissension set, the Rakdos Pit Dragon doesn’t hold a flame to the Dragons printed today. But, at the time, this “build a better dragon” creature was not only playable, but even worthy of competitive action. From 2007 to 2014, this Dragon card saw Top 8 competitive play in […]

Helm of the Gods – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Also, it has another ability that allows it to become a 4/3 creature with vigilance and […]

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 […]

Black Market – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Black Market is one of the most powerful Enchantments you could ever put into a Mono-Black deck in Magic the Gathering. It can be powerful in any deck that needs Black mana. Originally printed in the Mercadian Masques set, it was reprinted with the modern border in Commander 2015 with the Call the Spirits deck […]

Gideon, Martial Paragon and Friends – A Magic the Gathering Planeswalker Deck Review

While the planeswalker Gideon of the Trials making waves in Magic the Gathering’s competitive Modern format, it proved easy to forget that there another incarnation of Gideon somehow simultaneously existed on the plane of Amonkhet. Featured in one of the two Amonkhet Planeswalker decks, Gideon, Martial Paragon is a powered down, but still very interesting […]
