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 To this end, our metagame has begun to dust off and retool some of the most outdated mechanics in order to give our libraries reaching back to Revised a little air.

The Art of Legacy Burn by Cody L Locy
Explosive games, fast damage, and not a care in the world, this is Red Burn. A deck archetype that has never and will never seemed to burn out from the competition, Wizards willing.

Any Given Friday: The Power of Hybrid Mana by Michael Keen
Magic the Gathering is a game defined by formats. The format in which you play directly affects the cards you're allowed to use as well as the rules that dictate play, and as such, is the most important factor to consider when sitting down to build any pre-constructed deck.

Combo of the Day
Pentavus Buy + Lodestone Myr Buy + Mana Echoes Buy
Make an infinite mana loop using the Pentavite tokens and Mana Echoes Buy. Use the mana to consistently move the tokens on and off of Pentavus Buy. Tap the Pentavites with Lodestone Myr Buy prior to moving them back onto the Pentavus Buy. Repeat until Lodestone Myr Buy is freakishly huge. Attack. Obviously there are other uses for infinite mana as well... this one, however, is Extended and T-2 legal.
