Knowledge Vault: Spinal Villain (and the EDH starter kit giveaway continues!)

Greven il-Vec had better watch his back, because there’s another Spinal Villain in town.  Now that I got all of my skeletal puns out of the way, let’s see why I think Spinal Villain might be a budget King Suleiman.  Unfortunately, due to a buyout around Amonkhet,…

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…

[Old School MTG Brawl] Building 93/94 Reanimator in a format with “Color Identity” (and a new giveaway!)

This week, instead of building a deck around a Commander, we build the Commander around the deck.  Reanimation has always been a strong Plan A.  Additionally, in a multiplayer format filled with board sweepers, a few deck slots devoted to reanimation is also a…

Knowledge Vault: Immolation

This week, we discuss one of the least-appreciated burn spells in all of Old School MTG 93/94:  Immolation.  Now, Immolation may LOOK like an Enchant Creature/Aura, but it’s actually a Sorcery that deals two unpreventable damage.

[Old School Brawl] Boris Devilboon takes his Zombies to Swamptown.

Recently, I went into some detail about building an Old School MTG 93/94 Grixis (R/B/U) Zombie deck on our Twitch.  Unfortunately, the Old School MTG 93/94 Zombies are more flavorful than they are plentiful.  Therefore, Zombie Tribal is more of a subtheme in Old…

Knowledge Vault: …Knowledge Vault

Welcome to our new series of weekly blog articles, Knowledge Vault!  Every Friday, you can expect me to shed some light on lesser known 93/94 cards and/or interactions.  This week’s Knowledge Vault is on none other than, well, Knowledge Vault!

[Old School MTG][Brawl] Brewing a G/R/B (“Jund”) Land Destruction Deck

To celebrate the debut of the Atlantic 93/94 Old School MTG Restricted List and the restriction of my nemesis, Strip Mine, we’ve decided to serve up a slice of singleton land destruction!

[Old School Brawl] Rubinia Soulsinger: brewing a Creature Theft/Sacrifice Combo Deck

Rubinia Soulsinger, a Green/White/Blue (“Bant”) legendary creature from Legends, has over four hundred decks on EDHREC.  She was even reprinted in Commander Anthology.  With that many people using Rubinia in regular EDH, she is likely a strong candidate for a commander in Old School Brawl, as…

[Old School 93/94]: Why Hammerheim is better than Mountain in almost every single way (You heard me!)

Mountain is trash.  Mountain is a bad card.  Hammerheim is a superior magical card.  Mountain, for the following reasons, does not often belong in your 93/94 deck: (Disclaimer: this article is intended to be as satirical as it is educational.)
