Brian DeMars has played Magic pretty much since the beginning. He has three Grand Prix Top 8s with a win in Boston-Worcester in 2012. He was also recently a 2015 Open Champion in Indianapolis. Brian plays and enjoys all Constructed and Limited formats but has a particular fondness for Vintage. His proudest accomplishment in MTG is that he is the creator of the Danger Room/Battle Box Limited format.
Unfortunately, Brian DeMars won’t be able to play his local MagicFest with the COVID-19 cancellations, but he won’t let his preparation for Standard go to waste either! He’s got a matchup matrix for each of the most popular decks in the format.
Brian DeMars has a crazy variant MTG format that’s perfect for a car ride or anywhere else you need to kill time. Just choose 3 cards and match them up against your opponent—you don’t even need the actual cards!
Now that there’s no set date for a Banned & Restricted announcement, there’s no clear time to discuss upcoming changes to a format like Pauper. Brian DeMars takes the opportunity to examine what the future may hold for the format’s most dominant deck.
Looking to get into Battle Box, but don’t want to start with a rare-laden, expensive stack? Brian DeMars has built out an entire list with a budget-friendly price tag but the same great play experience.
