Adrian Sullivan has been around long enough to understand tournament formats, or more importantly, the risks in selecting certain decks within them. He's taking two big cases on current Standard to guide you and your #SCGDFW Standard Classic ambitions!
This week, Ross Merriam and Michael Majors square off with some of the heavy hitters of Modern! It's a clash between the all-destroying fun of Bant Eldrazi and the gleeful yet grim Grixis Control ahead of the Dallas Modern Open!
Bennie Smith is a full-time Commander man now! A published Commander author, a great representative of the veteran Magic community, and now, his most dangerous role yet: a defender of the most controversial card in the format!
#SCGDFW's Standard Classic will have a lot of decks pulled straight from an evolved Standard format. But it wasn't that long ago that a fresh ramp strategy totally blew away the metagame. Is it the right time to bring it back? Ross shares the tech!
Innistrad is all about dead things and scary monsters, so why isn't anyone digging things out of the graveyard? Resident brewer Matt Higgs plays in the dirt so that you can enjoy your #SCGDFW Sunday Classic!
A lot of big time control cards are no longer around in Standard. That means it's a lot tougher for control mages to get their game on. Luckily, Players' Champion Jim Davis has specifics on how you can control #SCGDFW's Standard Classic!
Mill players are beautiful. No matter what, they stick to their plan and take great joy in watching their confused opponents play along and grow the graveyard. Ross Merriam has found another of these rare magical creatures. How many will you spot at #SCGDFW?
Commander master Sheldon Menery had a swing at Ezuri during a recent League, but he's interested in giving a new direction! See the cards he's most excited to sleeve up to make some progress on the Claw of Progress!

Jund will absolutely positively never go away. Ross Merriam is convinced that Jund is the cockroach of Magic decks; it'll be here forever long after other decks are gone, and it might be at the #SCGDFW Standard Classic!
Ross Merriam knows why a lot of players are losing to Humans decks, but he's not sharing the secret with you. What's that? Oh, he is. Here. Because you've got the #SCGDFW Standard Classic coming up!
Mark Nestico got run over last weekend. There's no better way of putting it. So why is he in such good...Spirits? Because he's got a deck for the #SCGDFW Standard Classic that's so well-positioned...it's scary!
