Top 3 Standard Decks I've Played at Pro Toursde ChristianS (2018-08-10)
Standard has been pretty dull lately, turbo fog and paradoxical outcome aside. Christian has decided that instead of rehashing the same old broken standard decks sporting a certain whirling goblin, he'd look back at his favorite decks through the ages in this look back at Standard years past.
Myth & Magic: Dragonsde JohnnyCroat (2018-08-07)
Dragons, in the mythological sense, are a varied species. When used broadly, the word "dragon" consists of several sub-species such as drakes, sea serpents, wurms, and wyverns.

Join us on an archeological dig into the piles of cards from one of the most overprinted and least appreciated products from Wizards of the Coast. Hidden gems and surprises await us under each layer … and perhaps even some of Magic's rarest and most expensive cards.
