Girl power by Willow Deadsun Leahy
I wanted to write this to tell the few girls who do play; don't let the boys intimated you. You can be just as good as they can. (names changed to protect the accused).

Magic Lingo by Kevin Weber
Magic is filled with terms, slang, and lingo. Being able to understand it all is half the battle, and it'd be great if there was an article that helped bring people up to speed on it all.

Combo of the Day
Woodfall Primus Buy + Mighty Emergence Buy
Needs a sacrifice outlet such as Nantuko Husk Buy.

If you can manage to get the primus in play with both a creature sacrifice outlet and the mighty emergance, you can sacrifice the primus and watch it come back into play as a 5/5. This will trigger mighty emergence, removing the -1/-1 counter and allowing the primus to persist again.
