Exciting news from the digital world of Magic this week, as Cryptic Studios and Perfect World are creating a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). Will we be able to walk the multiverse as Jace and Chandra? We’ll find out!
From Around the Web
It’s like a rankings article with only the juiciest part over and over. Kerry Meyerhoff identifies his pick for the #1 enchantment, creature, land, sorcery, instant, planeswalker, and artifact (and Tribal card?) in Modern.
It was a rough week for somebody on the web team for WotC’s french site, as we were treated to an unintentionally early look at Nicol Bolas, Samut, and a new sweeper from Hour of Devastation. I sympathize—I’ve leaked something early on accident, and once I even accidentally gave away the CFB team deck at Pro Tour Dragon’s Maze (a lapse about which I am eternally embarrassed and reminded of). So, no judgment. Still, we can enjoy imagining the possibilities all the same!Saffron Olive at MTGGoldfish writes about the newly spoiled planeswalkers.
Vizier combo is making a big splash as Modern’s newest combo, and Nelson Guilbert at ManaDeprived.com gives it the deep dive it deserves. Even if you’re unacquainted with the archetype, his piece will bring you all the way up to speed in no time.

If a video’s more your speed, this preview from The Mana Source will give you a quick overview of the 3 spoiled Hour of Devastation cards.
PV explains why if you’re playing even just 61, you’re making a mistake.
Prefer to punish the blue players at Grand Prix Vegas rather than cast Brainstorms? Brian shows you how with his Death & Taxes build.
Marvel may not be unbeatable, but it’s still a tier 1 deck. Andrea brings you his mirror-ready build and sideboard guide.
Mashi and Ben Seck get you ready for GP Vegas with a little preview of Modern heading into the event!
Test some Modern for GP Vegas with Reid Duke playing, what else? Jund!
