Making Magic Happen for MagiKids

Jason Krell Community

Twenty Wizards of the Coast employees sat in an assembly line at Card Kingdom’s Ballard Campus, sorting cards and packing boxes for a few hours on a sunny Seattle afternoon. Some sorted commons from uncommons or separated out basic land cards. Others pulled card sleeves and deck boxes together for each of the 100 kits the volunteers constructed. In that …

Fringe Format – Dandân

Chris Cornejo Community, Design

Some fringe formats thrive off individual expression, or playing the most powerful cards in Magic, or both. Anyway, here’s Chris with Dandân. Many fringe formats of Magic center around either a creature with evocative abilities and lore (Momir Vig) or a group of linked creatures so emblematic of an aspect of the game that they can’t be ignored (The Elder …

The meaning of Community in Magic

The Meaning of Community in Magic

Anna Volbrecht Community, Fundraiser

Magic has its fair share of luminaries — faces we all know and perspectives we all care about. We gather inspiration from Rhystic Studies videos and the musings of Mark Rosewater. We marvel at the plays of Pro Tour champions and crack packs alongside the LoadingReadyRun crew. These individuals help shape the Magic community and give us a place to …

MTG History: The Nalathni Dragon Controversy (July 15th, 1994)

Jacob Lackner Community

Nizzahon looks at a significant event on this day in MTG history. On July 15th, 1994, Nalathni Dragon stirred up some controversy! Hi everyone, and welcome back to another edition of “This Day in Magic History.” Most articles in this series look at fairly large events in Magic history, like the creation of a new format, the bannings of a …

Dominaria United Predictions

Tom Anderson Community, Design

We have a bit of a breather in the Magic release schedule…so time to look ahead! Tom gives us his best guesses for Dominaria United! I almost hesitated to pitch this article to my editors. For many months now, it’s felt like the community is nearly drowning in new cards. There’s regular mixups over whether spoiled cards are Standard or …

Fringe Format: Battle Box

Chris Cornejo Community, Design

It’s time for another Fringe Format! This time Chris takes a look at a format that could be called two-player Cube: Battle Box! Battle Box is probably not a format that a ton of folks out there know about. But if you like playing Limited Magic, and specifically Cube, it’s one you should get to know. Mostly because Battle Box …

30 Years of Magic

Tom Anderson Community

Magic’s 30th anniversary is coming up, and Tom takes a look at how the game has changed over that span – and how it’s stayed the same! Get ready for a celebration – after WotC’s big announcements last week, it looks like Magic’s 30th anniversary year is officially about to kick off! (Unofficially, it might be pointed out that the …

Classic Artists in Double Masters 2022

Chris Cornejo Community

Double Masters 2022 is a reprint set, which means old cards get fancy new art…sometimes from some familiar names! Being a set composed entirely of reprints, Double Masters 2022 can’t give us much that counts as purely new. All the cards already exist (with a lone exception for Cryptic Spires), so while previews allow for excitement over some welcome reprints, there’s …

Double Masters 2022 Preview Cards

Card Kingdom Community

It’s preview season for Double Masters 2022! Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast, we have a couple of free preview cards to show off! Or, if you want to see them in a slightly more silly way, head over to our TikTok. We have two cards from the new set for you today, one that’s probably a little more Limited …
