Gods, Planeswalkers and other creatures: Speculation for MTG’s Forgotten Realms

The hits just keep on coming, kids! Welcome back to The Magic Tavern where it’s speculation 24/7/365! This is BDC and I am beyond excited for Adventures in the Forgotten Realms coming in July this year. This is mainly because Wotc seems to be extra excited and spoilery real early! First up, Wotc went theContinue reading “Gods, Planeswalkers and other creatures: Speculation for MTG’s Forgotten Realms”

World Tree bests the Kraken: Kaldheim in Arena

Ikoria gave us a marvelous enchantment in Ominous Seas that encouraged card draw into an 8/8 KRAKEN. And, the more card draw, the more lands you can get your hands on. This helps you build to another famous 8/8 Kraken when you play the card KIORA bests the Sea God. This one comes with, not only, Hexproof, but a complete shutdown of your opponent on the second phase of the saga and an outright stealing of an opponent’s creature on the third.

Speculation Time: What the Hell is happening in Kaldheim?

This is BDC and it’s been far too long since we published a speculation of any sort and I have to beg your forgiveness. The last week has been a daunting endeavor indeed. Been far too busy ‘raisin’ the axe’ and building Kaldheim decks on Arena. First of all, a GREAT set. Loads of fun are going to be had online and on dinner tables all over the world in the coming weeks. But I have been remiss in my duties as a researcher and studier of all things MTG…

Building Magda in Historic Arena

Last week we went over our options for building a Standard deck with Magda, Brazen Outlaw; the one card from Kaldheim that could reignite Dwarf Tribal. Now, we’re going to look into Historic. Of course, all of the cards we talked about last week are all one the table for an Historic deck.

Raise the Standard, Raise the Axe: Brewing Magda in Standard

I’ve been excited for Kaldheim as soon as I saw the card, Magda, Brazen Outlaw! I’ve waited for some decent Dwarves to show in MTG for the last two years and, within the 10 realms of Kaldheim, I believe we’ve finally arrived at Dwarf Tribal. (And make sure to hang to the end for a couple of jank possibilities.

Gods of Kaldheim: Returning Value

Well, the spoilers just keep on coming and almost every day we’re introduced to another god of Kaldheim. Now, I’m not complaining at all because I was really hoping for a good many of these types of cards. But these new gods bring both blessings and curses. On the bright side, they’re all  modal double-faced.Continue reading “Gods of Kaldheim: Returning Value”

Hittin’ harder than a bag of hammers: Casual EDH

Wotc has been telling us throughout the last month to ‘RAISE OUR AXES’ and, even though that’s very Viking and in theme for Kaldheim, I’m going to encourage us to raise our HAMMERS!
