Will Orc Tribal Finally Get Its Due in Forgotten Realms?

Now first of all, this is a speculation article not a spoiler. I have no new info about the upcoming MTG set, Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. Unfortunately. What we have plenty of here in the Magic Tavern is opinions and speculation. Lots of it. And we’ve had a discussion recently about some possibilities ofContinue reading “Will Orc Tribal Finally Get Its Due in Forgotten Realms?”

This Week in JANK: Izzet Gods?

Hey, gang. It’s BDC with another Week in Jank. Just when you think there is no Jank to be had, you find those little tidbits in the strangest places. Full disclosure: The deck showcased today is still in development. And maybe it should be dismantled and made in to two or more other decks. ButContinue reading “This Week in JANK: Izzet Gods?”

This week in JANK (Or combos you may have missed)

BDC here. I’m not much of a netdecker. I do have a mono white life gain deck that has nearly gotten me to mythic that is your run of the mill for that color and gimmick. But that’s about as close as I get. For the most part, I’m always on the look for thoseContinue reading “This week in JANK (Or combos you may have missed)”

Nothing to Fear but Tergrid itself (Standard)

Of all the Kaldheim god cards, Tergrid, God of Fear intrigues me the most. I had already been tooling around with zombie tribal and discovered the Dragr Necromancer which is a powerful addition to this deck and can about run the show by itself (as seen in the above video). But Tergrid brings a bitContinue reading “Nothing to Fear but Tergrid itself (Standard)”

Kaldheim: Vorinclex Standard

By BDC Fresh off of Wotc’s Week of Metal where we got looks at some of the gods, equipment, dwarves and new planeswalkers among other things, how could we have known that lurking in the outer recesses of the fandom, there was a creature of unimaginable chaos about to descend upon us. I mean, weContinue reading “Kaldheim: Vorinclex Standard”

Dwarves: A Tribe Reignited

Dwarfs have been around since the start of Magic: The Gathering. It is one of the original tribes and to me one of the most underserved of them all. There have been cards here and there and they have even been really showcased here and there, mainly Kaladesh…

Weekend Speculation: Elves in Kaldheim

A great deal of us are looking forward to the upcoming Kaldheim set and, at the same time, are a bit apprehensive.  And with good reason.  Wotc has had their moments of brilliance and, at the same time, dropped the ball completely at times.  So it should be no surprise that tentative optimism is aboutContinue reading “Weekend Speculation: Elves in Kaldheim”

What the Uro ban really meant

When they announced that somethin was going to happen Monday I was sure that Uro was gone (because he was from an older set and an easy target), but I also thought that he would not be the only one to take the fall. I figured they would only pick maybe one from the newest set if that or maybe one or two from Core Set 2021 but

Standard: In Memorium (NIV MIZZET PARUN)

(Things I will miss) Well, strangely enough, this is my first actual renewal season.  I played some casual back when Amonkhet came out, but never got serious into it until last year.  So, this is all a bit strange to me.  But I decided to jump in with both feet this time and ride theContinue reading “Standard: In Memorium (NIV MIZZET PARUN)”
