The Art of Legacy Burn
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.

Beginner Magic Lesson: Adding Basic Lands to a Multi-Colored Deck
Many people who begin to play Magic the Gathering have a difficult time learning how to construct a balanced mana base. This article details some easy steps to helping new players learn ways to tackle one of the hardest parts of deck building.

The Art of Attrition: Card Advantage and Card Devaluation
Playing Magic is all about having access to cards that you need in order to stop your opponent from doing things to your face.

PortlandEDH - Sharing is Caring FTW
MTG is fundamentally about resource management. But what happens when cards exist which turn resource management on its head?
Budget EDH 5 - Low Drop Creatures
Finding expensive spells for EDH is easy. It's not hard to pack 7-drop creatures that pack a big punch. Heck, just about any Mythic Rare that costs more than five mana will do. But good EDH decks don't just pack a whole bunch of high-cost creatures - otherwise they'll get blown over by someone running a cheap aggressive general like Doran.

The Art of Casual: MonoWhite Suicide
]MWS (MonoWhiteSuicide) – Ok, not really, but the theme is almost there. Maybe another article in the future for that one.
The power of Necromancy:
More than one way to interact directly with the cemetery, revive monsters can be an interesting way to put creatures directly into play,
Of all the innovations that we have been witness to, perhaps none more has been more prominent than the rise – or, for older players, the return – of the rivalry of Discard vs. Counterspell.
A New Idea, A New Potential
