From Around the Web
Burn received plenty of new toys from Ravnica Allegiance, and there’s even a Birthing Pod. Are they good enough to break through in Modern? Avinan at the Daily Dot takes a closer look.
Pauper legality is remarkably difficult to unpack, and you can’t really understand how difficult until you’ve read Caliban’s article at MTGGoldfish.
Michael Bonde at MTGMintCard has a new Mono-Blue Living End packing one of the sweetest new combo cards from Ravnica Allegiance.
It wouldn’t be a Mike Flores article without a story about him doing something “that one time,” and this one literally has a header that reads “That Time I Beat Affinity” so I don’t really see how you can not click it.

Since the play design team got cranking, limited has been amazing. Dom is the best set in 10 years. GRN And RNA are both very good. It's almost like you need expert level magic players to do a good job on the much more complex(better) format of magic! https://t.co/96DOYC9trU
