General Medicine — Horobi’s Not Jank!

Welcome back, dear readers! Today, since we’ve had two weeks of five-colored decks, we’re taking a step back from rainbow manabases and instead we’re going to focus on but a single color: black. Our patient is reader Sara’s Horobi, Death’s Wail deck. Before we get into it, however, we should discuss the broader perspectives. Mono-colored […]

Making the Rounds I want to begin today’s article by extending another sincere thank you to everybody who has sent me deck submissions so far. There are more of you than I initially expected, and even in my own fantasy I didn’t anticipate how many would be willing to put their decks under the knife. […]
