Aquaman Volume 1: The Trench

Battle for Zendikar Event Deck Review

Battle for Zendikar Event Deck Review

The Battle for Zendikar Event Deck – called Ultimate Sacrifice – dropped with the release of the new set with the intention of giving players interested in standard a possible starting point to work from.  In the past, the event decks have typically been decent.  Not always top tier and not always full of value, but certainly under the category of at least “good”. Does the Battle for Zendikar event deck follow suit?  Is it…

Fated Commanders

Fated Commanders

With the full list new cards from the Fate Reforge set being released, it’s a good time to start looking through the set to see what cards might become EDH (Elder Dragon Highlander / Commander) staples.  There are already websites reviewing the cards for limited and sealed play and likely some for Standard as well — but Commander is my personal favorite format and I’d like to share my own thoughts on what the set…

The Conspiracy Begins!

The Conspiracy Begins!

The Conspiracy Begins! Friday, June 6th marked the launch of Conspiracy — the latest Magic the Gathering set and the first set developed with multiplayer draft in mind.  I played it over the course of the weekend.  In fact, I played it every single night.  I’m having a hard time holding in my excitement for this new set.  Playing it — drafting it — was even better than I had hoped.  It is fantastic.  It…
