Did you know? Mimic Vat, Chromatic Lantern, Commander

Did you know? Foil Mimic Vat is up to $15! This card was only $6 less than 6 months ago, meaning you had 2 years to pick this up before commander demand brought it up to its current price. I only managed to acquire 2 copies in that time, and wish I had pursued them more aggressively.   Not every commander card can pull this stunt though. A lot of commander gold has been reprinted in the base sets in the last few years. Gilded Lotus, Akroma’s Memorial, and Darksteel Citadel come to mind. Akroma’s Memorial from M13 has...

A Destructive Path: Flinthoof Boar

In today’s post, Raphael Bell shares with us a tribute to his favorite card of M13, which will soon leave Standard… A Destructive Path Through the smoke and flames it hunts, sniffing out the panicked and confused. A blazing trail of ruin and charred remains closely follow behind. It’s path clouded by confusion and lack of better judgment, for such a primitive beast knows nothing else. It’s life, nothing but seeking the to be one of the first 7 cards in your hand to give you an advantage along with an Arbor Elf, Forest, and hopefully a Mountain. It fights long and hard on a uphill battle to hopefully “get there”, the “Flinthoof Boar.” My name is Raphael Bell, in case you didn’t know, I’m a big enthusiast on card art. The card mentioned, “Flinthoof Boar” is definitely one of my favorites. If you have not seen this thing in action or at all for that matter, here you are, in all of it’s splendid glory. Now first things first, back in M13 when I first saw this card I wondered, “Is there no deck for this card?” I thought it was a crazy piece of work; the eyes, bulging out of its head and sparkling with malice is what really did it for me. “This thing is going nuts!” I thought to myself, “there is no way it...
