Player Interactivity by Saran Ekambaram
Is anyone else tired of playing games that offer no interaction between players? I am speaking of a big trend that has been around too long in magic. There are far too many decks out there that take the concept of winning as a direct translation to cutting off all interaction between players in a game.

Budget Building: Episode 4 - Artifice by Kevin Weber
Mishra treads the dark path of combo, in Extended, with only $70. A good starting point for those tempted to dip into something older than Standard.
