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: Pixie Queen is now a Brawl Commander (& the 93/94 giveaway continues!)

This is a very special installment of Knowledge Vault.  I am happy to announce a Brawl rule change:  Pixie Queen is now eligible as a Commander!

[93/94 Brawl]: Rasputin Dreamweaver Combo(s) (and a new giveaway!)

Recently, I’ve had the itch to start Spiking again and have been focused on my Budget Decks series, the NEOS Monthly Tournaments, Hartfordfestivalen, and next week’s Mobstercon.  Regrettably, it’s been over four months since my last Brawl-specific article (excluding my Knowledge Vault series).  However, this one is…

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: Hartfordfestivalen 2019

Within this article, you will find my tournament report, a $100 budget decklist, some Brawl coverage, some general tomfoolery, and many heartfelt thanks.

Knowledge Vault: Thorn Thallid

Knowledge Vault: Witch Hunter

Every Friday, we crack into some lesser-known Old School 93/94 cards and interactions.  This week, we are taking a look at the Bluest White Card in the format:  Witch Hunter!  Witch Hunter may inspire the Terror of Leatherface wearing a Pilgrim’s hat, but it…

Knowledge Vault: Syphon Soul

In an Old School MTG 93/94 multiplayer game (Brawl or otherwise), resolving a Syphon Soul chips 10% off of each of your opponents’ life totals, with some life gain upside.  However, is that impactful enough to run maindeck?  Let’s Crack the Vault™ and find…

Knowledge Vault: Hand of Justice (and the giveaway continues!)

In this week’s Knowledge Vault, we’re going to take a quick look at Hand of Justice.  Now, you may be asking yourself, what’s so great about a six cmc 2/6?  Even terrible cards like Abomination and frickin’ Moss Monster are more economical than that.  The answer…
