The Scoop: Top-8 Debate – No Dino Love   Recently updated !

I will admit, if it is not already clear, I do not follow Standard tournament standings religiously. It’s for primarily two reasons; I can’t afford to keep up with Top-8 decks, and secondly, even if I could, I tend to not like the play styles of successful decks. For example, […]


The Scoop: Casual Contemplation – The Golem Army   Recently updated !

This deck is my oldest deck I have constructed that has survived the countless rebuilds, dismantles, bulk sales, etc. that I’ve done over the years. I will admit that part of the reason the deck has survived is two-fold: it has little value in it, so there’s little reason to […]


The Scoop: Casual Contemplation – Doing the Swampwalk

I don’t usually play Pauper format. In fact, I never have. Even when I built this deck, I set the challenge for myself to make a Pauper deck that could compete in Casual Modern with friends. And, for the most part, it was a success. Even now, I look back […]


The Scoop: Casual Contemplation – The Best Offense is a Good Defense   Recently updated !

It’s not terribly common that my favorite card in a set ends up being the most coveted and expensive in the MTG community. The card this deck is based around is a perfect example. Assault Formation turns combat on its head by making “big butt” creatures the thing to be […]


The Scoop: Casual Contemplation – Zada’s Garrison   Recently updated !

It’s been a lot of fun grinding out a decklist around Zada, Hedron Grinder that delivers all sorts of shenanigans. I’m not a fan of Goblins in general, unless I’m feeding them to my Jund Dragons EDH deck, but this little scamp was too much fun to pass up. Zada […]


The Scoop: Casual Contemplation – Triggered Raptors

When Ixalan came out, I was initially committed solely to producing a Gishath/dino EDH deck. And while that happened (and I will post that decklist next week), I became infatuated with Raptor Hatchling. I felt the card’s ability could be abused easily in Modern, so I decided to take a […]


The Scoop: Magical Supplements – Ixalan Part 2

With the new block officially released today, we are taking a look at a second set of featured cards that I find beneficial outside of the Standard format. I love me some dinosaurs, but with these cards, I’m looking to supplement some EDH where the dinos just aren’t going to […]


The Scoop: Magical Supplements – Ixalan

With the first set in the Ixalan block fully spoiled last Friday, and it being prerelease weekend, it’s time to dive into the cards to see what gems we can find that could be useful outside of Standard play. This set is begging for Dinosaur and Pirate tribal decks, but […]


The Scoop: Casual Contemplation – Who Goes There?   Recently updated !

I named this deck Who Goes There?, after the novella by John W. Campbell Jr., which was of course adapted into the film The Thing From Another World in 1951, and chiefly John Carpenter’s The Thing in 1982. The deck is based around the Blue Transform card Thing in the […]


The LCG: New Life for Nertunner   Recently updated !

New Life for Nertunner Android Netrunner has been falling by the wayside for me due to my mostly bad experiences at worlds last year playing the game. At the time, the game was in a spot where only a few decks were competitive. I will stop the train right here […]
