Searching Standard: Devoted to Devotion

When you look at standard right now there is such a wide variety of decks it is almost mind boggling. I don’t think there has been a time in recent memory where such a variety of decks were on the table and every single one had the potential to actually take down a big tournament, …

BUG Walkers in Standard

It all started with Ashiok. When was first spoiled, I wasn’t too excited about the card, but over time it started growing on me and I found myself attempting to brew decks with the card. Ranging from including it with a BUG Duskmantle Seer build, to creating a Dimir Control deck, Ashiok came in and …

Did you know? Foil Deadeye Navigator, Scavenging Ooze

Did you know? Foil is $17.00! SCG is a little bullish on this, because the markup over TCG player is a little higher than usual. TCG mid is at 13.88. Once we passed the banned and restricted announcement, they  upped their price. Make no mistake; this card is very powerful in commander. Every enter the …

Revisiting Alara: Naya

NAYA                 Naya is the Shard without blue and black mana. Without the influence of blue’s domestication and black’s rampant death, Naya grew into a realm of unbound growth. Many of the lifeforms of the shard have grown to sizes all but unheard of on most other worlds, and you can’t throw a rock in …

Did you know? Foil Mana Confluence, Nykthos

Did you know? Foil from Journey into Nyx is down to $30.00! They were $50.00 when the set released. Now that people have had a chance to redeem some and fulfill demand, the price has adjusted. It’s also seeing little play right now after the pro tour, but I think once rotation comes along there …

Waste Not, Revisited

  I almost had to do a spit take the first time I cast Whispering Madness. Here’s the scenario. My opponent, playing Blue/White Control, is tapped out. I have a Lifebane Zombie and Waste Not in play, and have just untapped with four mana available, and my one-of Whispering Madness is in my three card …

Did you know? Foil Twilight Mire, Consecrated Sphinx

Did you know? Foil from Eventide is $70.00! Regular copies are $35 now, which is equally surprising. This card doesn’t even see that much play. It’s amazing how high these are considering the main contributor is supply rather than demand. This is a 1-of in modern BG variants, and otherwise sees play as a 1-of …

Did you know? Grave Pact, Howling Mine

Did you know? from Commander, Planechase, 8th, 9th, and 10th edition is $13.00! Oddly, the original one from Stronghold is a little lower coming in at $12.00. Did you notice how many sets this card is from? It’s been printed 6 times and is $13.00! That’s crazy! Let’s not give too much weight to those …
