Luis Salvatto set out to find a deck that punished Nexus of Fate and other midrange decks, and found the answer with Hadana’s Climb.
If you’re grinding Arena, you’ll need a plan for Mono-Red without throwing away too much percentage everywhere else. Simon Nielsen has three lists over at MTGMintCard that stand a chance.
It made its way to Modern, so it was only a matter of time before people would start trying to break Arclight Phoenix in Legacy. Rich Cali at FlipSide Gaming found a solid starting point.
I can’t think of one so, Christopher Brunner at CardMarket already has me beat.
Whatever happened to Maverick? This disruptive Abzan list feels like it might have been displaced by Death and Taxes, but Kendra Smith at CoolStuffInc has a list that might still be viable.

Frank provides one of the most comprehensive overviews of aggro in Standard you can find, with lists for every color and combination!
One of them is Sand.
Hydroid Krasis is quickly becoming the most important card in Standard, and Martin shows you the ropes with the best home for the card.
And they come up more often than you’d expect.
Nexus of Fate introduces a new kind of issue in Magic: one that’s relevant only on the online platform. Should it be banned only on MTG Arena?
I think Sideboarding is much harder because mulliganing is binary. Even if you have no clue you're choosing between two options, and if it's close, it often doesn't matter which you pick (and you're 50% to get it right anyway). SBing has infinite combinations https://t.co/e3fXWB1cYy

In honor of @meddlingmage's belated birthday, let us never forget one of the best 'Ask Wizards' questions of all time, submitted by someone who happens to also have the name "Chris P". @Jonnymagic00 I know you love this one. pic.twitter.com/xMhXITti54

Doc: “This magic player has been in a coma for 1 year, we’re running out of ideas.”
Me: “Let me try… [speaks loudly] Best of one means a bright future for competitive Magic!”
Magic player: [opens one eye]
