TheBoxer’s Corner: Ø

“But I have patience and experience. A man can do anything if he has those.” – Helmut Zemo, Captain America and the Winter Soldier Hello and welcome back to TheBoxer’s Corner! Unless you speak a Nordic language or study mathematics you probably aren’t familiar with the character Ø. In math it is the symbol used to represent the Empty Set. The Empty Set is the most important set (if you adhere to the ZFC formulation of Axiomatic Set Theory). In

Budget Decks for Mythgard – October 2019

October! What a fun month…. trick-or-treaters, spoopy memes, budget decks…. October truly has it all. Let’s sit down to enjoy some candy and talk about what this article is. Previously, the idea behind these decks was to present options for new players looking to jump into ladder play and bypass the “finding out what cards to use to start winning hard early” phase of learning the game. Personally, I’m not a free-to-play player, nor am I anywhere near it. I

TheBoxer’s Corner: Kennadin

In this video I give a deck tech and then play 5 games with a Kennadin list given to me by LightsOutAce. Kennadin is a deck built around Combustion Cell and Tribute cards. Please note that this video was recorded before Garden of Omens was released. I believe it is likely incorrect to play zero copies of Garden, but I don’t have an updated list to share with you.

Stoneforge Unbanned: U/W Mages Rejoice

All I have to say is don’t let your memes be dreams I guess. I’m not sure how many times I tweeted with the hashtag #freeSFM, but it happened at least once a month for a long time.  I mentioned in my two previous articles that  the modern format needed a change, and I assumed that The R&D team would simply ban Hogaak, and let the format go from there. What we got was, well….more than that:  PIC HOGAAK BAN

Building Better Starters (Part 2): The Savage-est of Beats

Hello godlings, and welcome to the second installment in my Building Better Starters series! If you’re new here, you missed the [RB] Dire Starter primer, so go check that out! To the rest of you, this article is going to be about two more factions – for variety’s sake as much as anything. And because they’re kind of the next two factions we’re introduced to as new players running through the Story. Yep, you guessed it, today we’re going to

Yellow-Green Kolobok Ramp

I was trapped in a loop. I wanted to play big powerful minions and I wanted to play Green. The constantly optimizing part inside of me said, “You have to play Necromantic then”. But Disk of Circadia Hopeless Necromantic builds have been explored in many variants to great success, so I felt I wouldn’t be able to break new ground in a so thoroughly charted territory. Clearly I could just wait until turn 8 to play an Indrik Beast from

Building Better Starters (Part 1): The Dire-est of Decks

Hello godlings, and welcome to my first Mythgard article for Team Rankstar! Some of you may remember me from SolForge (if so, bravo!), but even if you don’t, let me just tell you that I tend to approach my CCGs in an unorthodox manner. I am a brewer. And I brew jank. I love to brew decks that many might consider odd, or strange, and in part that’s because I enjoy looking at all the different interactions all the cards

Modern Gets Frosty: Two Snow Decks I Am In Love With

Hey everyone! My name is Tim, otherwise known Tchamber5 in the queues! Today, I wanted to talk about some decks that are not only super sweet, but that I think will be very competitively viable after the Banned and restricted announcement on the 26th of August. What decks could I be talking about? Snow decks of course! I have been really impressed with the subtly excellent synergies that were released with Modern Horizons. Namely, there are a few key pay-off

Jennev Primer

Trials of Grodov wasn’t the most well received set to be released in recent months. It didn’t include a Player vs AI campaign to fight through. This was a disappointment to some, while it was a welcome surprise to others, myself included. I didn’t really enjoy having to rip through the campaigns just to get my cards. I never took the time to enjoy the duels, it was always a question of how could I unlock them faster. My suggestion

6-2 at MCQW with Bant Scapeshift!

This past weekend, MTG: Arena held a Mythic Championship Qualifier Weekend (further referred as MCQW) which was comprised of all players who finished top 1,000 during the War of the Spark season (past 3 months) in either Constructed or Limited. I was able to play in this event after qualifying in June through Constructed playing mostly Bant Ramp, but today I’d like to talk about the deck I went 6-2 with this weekend, almost making day 2: Bant Scapeshift.

Fires of Creation: Mono-Purple Night Market

Erobert here and we’re back again this week with Fires of Creation! Settling more into Purple, and discerning what sorts of strategies emerge from this new card pool, I’m working out a deck in mono Purple. Relying only on Purple’s distinctive features, items and large minions, this deck seeks to make the most of high gem costs and the virtual card advantage of colorless items and temporary mana. Let’s get started! Virtual Card Advantage As we have discussed in previous
