Sure, you don't have a Disciple of the Vault to go with it, but the little artifact eater can still do some damage! See what Matt Higgs has planned for this iconic creature's latest incarnation!
Even with a large toy box in Modern, you can't play with everything. And that's tragic, because The Boss misses these Modern cards and just wants them to come home! Anyone playing these at SCG Baltimore? Can you share your lists with Tom? To make him feel better?
Brewers gotta brew, and in Chris Lansdell's case, he has to share others' decks too! From a Shadowborn Apostle deck that somehow works to an update for Four-Color Planeswalkers, the LAB is open for SCG Baltimore and the burners are all fired up!
Aggro, control, combo, and midrange are very important. Because when a deck can play basically all of the above at once? Man, that's just not fair!
Fatal Push isn't the important card from Aether Revolt to hit Modern? Is Renegade Rallier that insane? Michael Majors thinks so! And he's putting his money where his SCG Baltimore mouth is with tons of decks and combos you can use this breakout card with!
Patrick Chapin understands how deep Fatal Push has made the Modern format! So much so that he's breaking out new brews, updates for old archetypes, and tons of analysis for the big SCG Baltimore weekend! Modern specialists: take notice!
Matt Higgs can't resist: He is going to try to craft himself a Cruel Ultimatum, and he can't wait for more sets to do it! He's going to work on Standard and Modern this week!
There were plenty of other interesting (and good) Standard builds lurking just out of sight last weekend. It's Chris Lansdell's job to bring them into the spotlight!
Mardu may have been at the top of the mixed format event, but there were a lot of very strong showings that were obscured by Limited rounds! Chris Lansdell tweaks on a few here!
Tom Ross is dishing out Modern decklists for SCG Regionals! From updates to signature decks like Tron and Infect to an all-new Saheeli Rai-based combo deck, "The Boss" has you covered! And for good measure, he wraps things up with...Vampires?!
Once wasn't enough this week for Matt Higgs! He's got more brewing in him than he can handle, and he's showing off yet another innovation for Aether Revolt Standard!
Seriously, for the amount of money this deck costs, it doesn't matter what it does! But luckily, what it does is cool! Matt Higgs puts together a new archetype that tries to get maximum mileage out of Aether Revolt!
Every single Magic card--okay, almost every Magic card--has a shot to be competitive at some point. Get out your Limited chaff box. Get out your unplayable Draft trash. Because it just may slot in nicely to this up and coming archetype!
Gold cards are sneaky good these days! Matt Higgs has noticed and wants to provide some new brew ideas for those that want to sacrifice creatures in the name of fun at SCG Richmond!
Just one Brew Blitz wasn't enough for Chris Lansdell! Our resident Madcap Experimenter has turned his eccentric eye on Standard. Next time, he'll tell you what sticks. For now, enjoy the SCG Richmond lists!
There's a relentless brewer in Chris Lansdell that gets triple giddy when a new set is put into his capable Magic hands! Join him for a host of fun Modern brews you can get started on today!
Columbus was only the beginning. Saheeli Rai was present but hardly dominant. The previous format's archetypes made good bids, but nothing strangled the format entirely. That means there's plenty of room to explore this format before SCG Richmond weekend! Patrick Chapin is the man for the job!
Nothing sends a brewer's heart going pitter-pat like +1/+1 counter shenanigans! Matt Higgs couldn't help himself, and he's served up a G/W list to go with his Prerelease observations! How many dice do you need for SCG Columbus?
Chris VanMeter was off the tournament scene for a short while, returned, and won his first SCG Tour Open immediately last year! How did he do it? By putting some aggressive cards in his foes' faces on Week One! He's got red stacked to the rafters for SCG Columbus (and some dedicated planeswalker brews if that's your thing too!)
Sam is just going to say it: There are some Aether Revolt cards that players are sleeping on because they're not big and splashy rares. Reflector Mage snuck into Standard and was eventually banned for it! Make sure you know the full set before SCG Columbus Standard this weekend!
