Uncommonders – Is Gix’s Favorite Student a Dud?

Disciplined Disciple Hello, my lovely reader friends. My name is Seth Cross and this is the newest, latest, and greatest edition of Uncommonders! This series was inspired by the Dominaria set, which released a myriad of legendary creatures, including twenty of them printed at the uncommon rarity. While many (including myself) thought this was strange […]

Commander Showdown — Jhoira vs Jhoira

Back to the Future, Forward to the Past Our trip through the Dominaria preview season has been topsy-turvy, wibbly-wobbly, and of course, timey-wimey. From Muldrotha, the Gravetide to Firesong and Sunspeaker, this legendary plane has more legendary creatures than we’ve seen in a long time. Still, one of them stands out from all the rest, […]

Underdog’s Corner — Tishana, Voice of Thunder

Recent-Past Reviewed Hello, everyone! Welcome back to another edition of the Underdog’s Corner! As we move closer towards the release of Dominaria, I thought to look back on the last block, Ixalan. This week’s entrant is one that always seemed powerful, but never received a lot of attention. I certainly never gave it much attention […]

60 to 100 — Mishra Has a Lantern

Down — still unceasingly — still inevitably down! I gasped and struggled at each vibration. I shrunk convulsively at its every sweep. My eyes followed its outward or upward whirls with the eagerness of the most unmeaning despair… At length for my seared and writhing body there was no longer an inch of foothold on […]

Un-Mander Showdown — X vs Sen Triplets

X Gon’ Give it to Ya Un-mander is here for only a few more weeks, but before the format goes back to normal, we need to have at least one more silver-bordered Showdown. Unstable gave us a commander that easily wins the Most-Difficult-Card-To-Search-By-Name award: X. This sneaky Inspector Gadget spoof infiltrates an opponent’s hand and plays […]

Combo Corner — Paradox Engine

Just over half a year ago, a card was announced that made many people call for it to be banned even before it was in our hands: Paradox Engine. Some even believed it would end up being banned in standard, which was hyperbolic, and at times I can even see why someone might want Paradox […]

Commander Showdown — Kess vs Dralnu

Flashback Attack Almost exactly eleven years ago, the Time Spiral set was released, shaking the world in ways players never expected. ‘Timeshifted’ cards like Lord of Atlantis and The Rack brought the past into the present as temporal rifts threatened to destroy the beloved plane of Dominaria (which we’ll return to next year.) If you’d like […]
