Looking Backwards by Wolfenrunner
While I appreciate progress, and yes, the game must change with time, many pre-existing card abilities could be revitalized and reintroduced by Wizards of the Coast with little development effort. To this end, our metagame has begun to dust off and retool some of the most outdated mechanics in order to give our libraries reaching back to Revised a little air.

Standard format has, time and time again, created “The Boogeyman.” What I mean by that is, there is always one deck out there that makes you cross your fingers hoping you're not its next victim

Thematic Deck Building by Womble
I take something I like, and I build around it. It might be an individual card, a combo, a creature type, or even something as simple as a cool-looking card or a theme. But I take this something I like, then try and work out how it can impact a game.
