This may seem counterintuitive, even paradoxical, but I’m going to take a moment on this blog to praise the decklist of the winning player at this weekend’s SCG Open Series in Denver. This isn’t unusual at all for a Magic blog, but we’re more of a kitchen-table crowd here and we like our Magic like [...]Read More

Now that Wizards is supporting the format, officially calling it Commander, they are adding 51 new cards that are not a part of standard [...]Read More

Everyone here at the Casual Planeswalker is eagerly anticipating our trip to Denver’s Pre-Release for New Phyrexia, hosted by Front Range Magic. While there’s a lot to look forward to in the new set, including the Praetors, a whole menagerie of new Living Weapons, and more Infect than you can shake a Staff of the Ages

There certainly isn’t an abundance of creatures with this ability, but there is the potential to use Immolating Souleater to deal 10+ damage on the third turn and that’s nothing to sneeze at. While Ogre Menial might not exactly look appealing, he’s got Infect built in and will only need half as much pumping for the kill-shot.Read More
