Looking back through the tomes of lore there seemed only one good place to start, Yawgmoth. I knew the name very will and even know cards like Yawgmoths vile offering and Yawgmoths will but it wasn’t until I really started digging that I found what made this once human physician one of the biggest bads in all of nerdom.
The idea seemed fun and novel, but most the cards listed and previewed seemed more and more like they were just powerful staples or at least staple cards for the sake of hype. It’s a masters set after all, but trying to draft it seemed truly like it was trying to decide which color i wanted to pair with artifacts.
Theros has always held a special place for me in the MTG multiverse. I have a deep love for ancient Greek mythology and Magic making it into its own theme for a plane was just amazing to me. Just like with Greek mythology, the more you dug into the cards and the lore behind them, the more questions you ended up having and wanting answers too…
An ability since Alpha and a Keyword since Champions of Kamigawa (9th Edition), Vigilance has been a staple in MTG for quite a while. And rightly so.

What comes to mind when I bring up the class: Bard? Most times we see an outrovert troubadour obnoxiously making time with anything that moves all the while playing the songs that not only make the girls cry, but inspires the party to fight harder and their enemies to wimp out and run in fear. Continue reading “In a different class: Bards are more than a song”
With the arrival of MYTHIC ODYSSEYS OF THEROS last week, we got the best sourcebook ever from the Magic the Gathering world. We also got the first official 5E stat block for the Satyr as a playable race. Now, there have been plenty of reasons NOT to open this race up as playable, but SatyrsContinue reading “Why play Satyrs? Mythic Odysseys into Revelry”
From deep within the archives of the Magic Tavern, when I’m not brewing MTG decks, I’m digging through the ancient tomes of D&D history. I’ve spent most of my life, including my studies in college, learning to love the joys of research. That and my love for ancient history has fueled a passion to digContinue reading “Not everything with horns is a Tiefling: Fiendish Options”
With the two awesome new goblins in Core Set 2021 I thought it was about time I shared my goblin EDH deck with you guys! I have loved goblins for a long time. Every since I first started playing DnD long ago. When I started building EDH decks it was an easy choice on which one had to come first.
Hello all and welcome to a special edition of CHARACTER REFERENCE! Now, this entry spawned from two things. The first thing that birthed this small piece of insanity was a question of multiclassing.
