Deck of the Week: B/W Vehicles

Card Kingdom Deck of the Week, Standard

With Pro Tour Dominaria about to unfold this weekend, the Standard landscape is becoming increasingly unsteady. While U/W Control and B/R Aggro are still ubiquitous, more divergent strategies are emerging as players choose “beat ’em” over “join ’em.” The most talked-about deck of these is B/W Vehicles, which our own Chris VanMeter took out for a spin this past week. …

Deck of the Week: Mono-Black Control

Card Kingdom Deck of the Week, Standard

The post-Dominaria Standard metagame seems to be taking shape, with U/W Control decks and Red Aggro decks facing off in tournament halls and local game stores alike. Having covered both decks thoroughly in previous installments of Deck of the Week, we tuned into this week’s Team Standard Super League to see what else the format had to offer. Tuesday’s episode …

Deck of the Week: B/R Hollow One

Chantelle Campbell Deck of the Week, Modern

Throughout its brief tenure in the Modern format, Hollow One has not been a deck that players have taken particularly seriously. With cards like Burning Inquiry and Goblin Lore, the opportunity for the deck to fail itself often seems too high. But that variance can hurt your opponents as much as it can hurt (or help) you. With the deck …

Deck of the Week: Standard B/R Aggro

Simon Irving Deck of the Week, Standard

Dominaria Standard is still a new and shiny format, open to all kinds of innovation and originality. Early results have shown a massive swing away from the previous Standard metagame, with nary a Scarab God to be found. Without that great bug-headed monstrosity casting its ominous shadow over the battlefields and graveyards of our Standard matches, many new archetypes are …

Deck of the Week: Standard U/W Control

Hallie Santo Deck of the Week, Standard

For the past several months, Standard has been dominated by two titanic threats: Hazoret the Fervent and The Scarab God. These two larger-than-life creatures were among the most impactful and hardest to answer in the format, and their struggle for control of Amonkhet played out on battlefields at Friday Night Magic and Grand Prix alike. While many Standard stalwarts chose …

Deck of the Week: Modern Goblins

Simon Irving Deck of the Week, Modern

Are you excited about Dominaria? I certainly am! Big set, new cards, old nostalgia. Yet, of all the shiny new toys that Santa Karn is about to deliver to us, there are two reprints that have really piqued my interest – Skirk Prospector and Goblin Warchief. Goblins have long been gnawing at the edges of playability in Modern, and I’m …

Deck of the Week: GP Seattle Winners

Card Kingdom Deck of the Week, Legacy, Standard

In honor of last weekend’s double-header Grand Prix in our hometown of Seattle, we have a double dose of Deck of the Week for you today! Seattle is well-known as a Legacy hotbed, and it was only fitting that one of our own would win the Legacy portion of the event. Mox Seattle regular Daniel Duterte took down the tournament …

Deck of the Week: Legacy Soldiers

Chantelle Campbell Deck of the Week, Legacy

(Editor’s Note: This Friday, we’ll be introducing a brand new exclusive Card Kingdom product here on the CK Blog! With that in mind, we’re bringing you our Deck of the Week a few days early. Enjoy!) Mono-White Soldiers has been on everyone’s radar since the spotlight was shined on it at SCG Worcester. With Grand Prix Seattle (and Mox Boarding …
