Bluffing, Lying, and Playing Your Opponent by Onikage
Anyone who has ever played poker can understand this. Playing your opponent comes in the form of mind games, bluffing, and sometimes just plain lying (without breaking the rules) to gain any advantage.

Cubing it up by OrnithopterLover
Let's face it, most magic players are not rich. For those of use that love limited, that's an even more painful truth. A while ago, I was introduced to an alternative to normal drafting that I loved, and I wanted to share it with you.

The Art of Control: In the Darkness Once Again by Scott
Why chose black over blue? For the Control and the hundreds of dollars saved. Think about it, what does every good blue deck need? Usually, expensive cards, if it wants to be competitive. Several fish decks notwithstanding... But in black...control is cheap (relatively speaking.)

Combo of the Day
Arcane Laboratory Buy + Mystic Snake Buy + Sunken Hope Buy
Have Arcane Laboratory Buy in play. When they play a spell, counter it with Mystic Snake Buy. At the beginning of your upkeep, return it to your hand to pay for Sunken Hope Buy. Soon, they'll run out of creatures and can't play anything. Even Scragnoth Buy is useless since they'll never be able to attack with it!
