Rivals of Ixalan Brews, pt. 3 – Big Red

Big Red has always been one of my favorite archetypes. Ben Stark already showed us that it’s possible, but now we have new tools. The two that feels the best are Etali, Primal Storm and Dire Fleet Daredevil. There’s also, possibly, Rekindling Phoenix, if the metagame is right.

Rivals of Ixalan Brews, pt. 1 – BU Pirates

I’ve sort of being looking forward to this, but there’s a problem. There just isn’t anything that would make a pirates deck better. I mean, there’s a couple of really strong Pirates.

Duel Decks: Merfolk vs. Goblins Review

Once again, we sat down with Lauri and played some games with the decks as is. I found these much better than the last ones (Mind vs. Might), which just weren’t in any way interesting to play, but let’s look at them a little deeper before judging them.

MtG Cube: Rise of the Machines

Recently I have found it difficult to guide the remains of my energy to any profitable direction; thus I have spent time brewing Magic. I started with putting together Card Kingdom battle decks so that I would always have a few casual decks at my summer cabin for random games. Then while watching newest Tolarian Community College video it recommended watching video about Cube. After watching it I just decided to put together my very first Cube. Aki kindly reminded me that this was something I could and should share here – so here we are!
