You’d have to be living under a rock to miss LSV’s Set Reviews on this site, but even the rock dwellers need a chance to catch the most important piece on the new set!
The July 2nd ban announcement may go down as the most important in the format’s history.
BenS isn’t ready to let Dominaria Draft go just yet!
Sam sees if he can do a little better with Blue-Green Karn than Team CFB did at Pro Tour Dominaria.
Disclaimer: Gitaxian Probe was banned in Legacy on July 2nd. Still, we thought this deck was too crazy not to run. We hope you enjoy it!
Take on another Vintage Cube Draft alongside LSV as he breaks down each pick and every match!
Wow, I love these bans – Gitaxian Probe and Deathrite Shaman getting the axe in Legacy is going to make things very interesting. https://t.co/Dc67rR0yzI

If you thought @NissaCosplay's Shalai cosplay at #GPBCN looked good in a still photo, this video will blow your mind. I still can't believe this isn't something out of a movie trailer:#wotcstaff pic.twitter.com/6aWBCERZdX

Judge! Bomat Courier attacks & my opponent makes the heads-up play of waiting until I’ve attacked to Fatal Push it to exile one card from my deck. Later they use Field of Ruin and I determine beyond a reasonable doubt that my one exiled card is Squee, the Immortal. Can I cast it?

I forced a bot to watch over 1,000 hours of Magic coverage then asked it to write its own. This is the first page. pic.twitter.com/HdjaAtOSCr
