[Standard] Jund Sacrifice – Tips, Tricks, Hacks, etc.

Despite what some are calling a new age of “Haymaker Magic,” it should be no surprise that, thanks to an abundance of mana generation, card advantage, and life gain, Temur Reclamation won the SCG Tour Online Championship Qualifier 2.  Just one of those three things…

Parallel Thoughts: Premodern Brawl Q&A (and debut of Rules v.1.1) – 04.16.2020

It’s been a little over a week since we released an initial set of rules for Premodern Brawl and the community engagement has been nothing short of incredible!  We definitely did not expect such a quick, passionate, and welcoming response.  Since then, we’ve received a…

[Premodern Brawl]: Rules, Bans, Errata, and Commanders

Many of you know that I love Singleton formats.  I’ve written extensively on the subject of Old School 93/94 Brawl, and I’m still pretty sure nobody else but me has played since Hartfordfestivalen.  However, you may not know that I also wrote a series of primers…

Knowledge Vault: Banshee

On a regular basis, usually the first or second Friday of the month, our Knowledge Vault segment attempts to (somewhat satirically) Crack into the Vault of the best Old School 93/94 cards that you (probably) aren’t playing.   This month, we unveil Banshee to prove to…

Tournament Report: NEOS April Monthly Group 6 (3-2 with Erhnam & Burn ‘Em)

You might remember that last month’s $40 Erhnamgeddon list didn’t do so great.  However, April went much better.  After cutting the White for Red, my Erhnam & Burn ‘Em list went on to take Highest Unpowered at Hartfordfestivalen.  Hot off of that finish, I…

Knowledge Vault: Metamorphosis

On the First Friday of every month, we (somewhat satirically) crack into some lesser-known Old School 93/94 cards with the intent to open a dialogue and encourage brewing.  I’m sorry that this month’s was a little late, but I was busy preparing for Hartfordfestivalen….
