Bone Picker - Card set : “Amonkhet”
Grabbing one of these every time you see it during Draft Weekend is not only a solid strategy, it also opens up the possibility of earning yourself the sweet nickname of "[autocard]Bone Picker[/autocard] Picker."
April 21, 2017
Prepare // Fight - Card set : “Amonkhet”
Make sure you [autocard mvid="426922"]Prepare to Fight[/autocard] it out at an Amonkhet Prerelease this weekend! Use our store locator if you still haven't chosen your battlefield yet.
April 20, 2017
Honored Hydra - Card set : “Amonkhet”
Between this and [autocard]Domesticated Hydra[/autocard], it's starting to seem like Hydras make better pets than most people would have suspected.
April 19, 2017
Lord of the Accursed - Card set : “Amonkhet”
If you're a fan of Zombies, make sure to shamble down to your favorite local game store this weekend for Amonkhet Prerelease. There are plenty of new cards to make Zombies more menacing than ever before!
April 18, 2017
Look at that happy face! With so many smiling citizens, who could think anything is wrong on Amonkhet?
April 17, 2017
Cat tribal, meet Standard. We've been meaning to introduce you two for a while, and we thought the Cat-loving plane of Amonkhet was the perfect place to rendezvous.
April 14, 2017
[autocard]Nevermore[/autocard] will your opponents be meddling with you or your [autocard mvid="179547"]mages[/autocard] once this hits the battlefield.
April 13, 2017
Samut, Voice of Dissent
When she's not competing with [autocard mvid="420645"]Atraxa[/autocard] to have the most keyword abilities, Samut likes to spend her time trying to expose the horrifying truth that lies behind the society of Amonkhet. You know, normal hobbies.
April 12, 2017
Nissa, Steward of Elements
It's hard to tell what the bigger news here is: Nissa splashing into blue, the first non-Kiora Simic planeswalker, or having an X cost on a 'walker. Actually . . . never mind. It's definitely the X cost.
April 11, 2017
Neheb, the Worthy
Dust off that [autocard]Didgeridoo[/autocard]: your Minotaur-tribal commander has arrived.
April 7, 2017
Ironically, this card was first seen ten years ago as part of a glimpse into the future, yet it will only let your opponents look as far as four cards into their future.
April 6, 2017
Kefnet the Mindful
Beyond being one of the wisest beings on Amonkhet, Kefnet is also charged with maintenance of the Hekma and therefore the external security for Naktamun.
April 5, 2017
Onward to Victory
Playing both of these on one creature is an easy way to quadruple the amount of damage a creature can deal that turn. Playing both on an [autocard]Electrostatic Pummeler[/autocard] is an easy way to make your opponent lose that turn.
April 4, 2017
Hazoret the Fervent
The first of the Amonkhet Gods is here! After weeks, fans finally have a name to use other than "the jackal God."
April 3, 2017
Only on Amonkhet would people see a colossal croco-Dragon incinerating Warriors with volleys of fire and nickname it "Glorybringer."
April 10, 2017
Angel of Sanctions
Because [autocard]Oblivion Ring[/autocard] wasn't playable enough on its own, we decided to stick a 3/4 flying body on it. And then we added graveyard recursion just in case.
- March 2017
March 31, 2017
Bone Saw - Card set : “Oath of the Gatewatch”
BONE SAW IS READY to Sram Dunk your opponent. OOHHH YEAH!
March 30, 2017
Mausoleum Wanderer - Card set : “Eldritch Moon”
They say that one is the loneliest number, which may explain why this 1/1 spends its time meandering through graveyards eagerly looking for company.
March 29, 2017
Twins of Maurer Estate - Card set : “Shadows over Innistrad”
The best part about being a twin is that you always have someone else to blame things on. When both twins are evil, this happens a lot.
March 28, 2017
The Gitrog Monster - Card set : “Shadows over Innistrad”
The only thing left to make Frog tribal viable is . . . a lot more Frogs.
March 27, 2017
Kiora, Master of the Depths - Card set : “Battle for Zendikar”
Kiora got tired of Steve sniping all her octopodes with his precious crossbow, so she started to teach them all how to fight before they went into battle. It turned out pretty well.
March 24, 2017
However unconventional it may be to bomb the enemy with Goblins, it's hard to deny the effectiveness.
March 23, 2017
Because [autocard]Tarmogoyf[/autocard] wasn't scary enough on its own, [autocard]Wingcrafter[/autocard] is available to give it flying as soon as it comes into play.
March 22, 2017
Possibly the Simic-est card ever printed returns to give you either the mana ramp or card advantage you need to evolve your board state.
March 21, 2017
Goblins may not ascend to wizardhood often, but when they do, the results tend to be efficient—if not chaotic.
March 20, 2017
As soon as Flickerwisp is in your draft pool, your eyes will light up every time you see the words "enters the battlefield" from then on.
March 17, 2017
Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Librarians take note: Linvala combos well with [autocard]Stony Silence[/autocard] to make for a game full of justified shushing.
March 16, 2017
There's a reason people stopped inviting this guy to the bar and he ended up just following animals around the woods. Hint: it's not because he's great at convincing others to get along.
March 15, 2017
White-blue may be the most common home for blink, but [autocard]Thragtusk[/autocard] would like to aggressively suggest that you include green.
March 14, 2017
Simple, effective, and instantaneous—one of the best and simplest creature removal spells ever printed returns!
March 13, 2017
Finally, the sure-fire answer to [autocard]Horn of Deafening[/autocard] and [autocard]Shriekhorn[/autocard] returns to nullify their incessant blaring. As a bonus, artifacts that people actually use are affected, too.
March 10, 2017
Zur the Enchanter
The weirdest wizard in Magic returns to make drafts and Commander games more enchanting!
March 9, 2017
One of the cards that dredge players dread the most is back to fill the sideboards of any deck looking to negate graveyard shenanigans.
March 8, 2017
Your ominous chants have been heard: Séance has returned from the other side to haunt its detractors once again!
March 7, 2017
After watching several seasons of Bob Ross over a single weekend, this Goblin decided he also wanted to help others draw lands.
March 6, 2017
You may have heard that white-blue blink is one of the explicitly supported archetypes in Modern Masters 2017, and this guy has shown up to happily pilot the deck if need be.
March 3, 2017
Cavern of Souls
After you're done with your Modern Masters 2017 Edition draft, you can keep enjoying the pretty new art by sticking this into your Atog tribal deck! Or a tribal deck with some other inferior creature type.
March 2, 2017
Liliana of the Veil
One of the most powerful planeswalker cards is back for another round. Is Liliana as dominant in Limited as she is in Constructed? If you missed the original Innistrad, you'll be able to find out soon!
March 1, 2017
That's right! Snapcaster Mage is back, and he's sporting an all-new look on the cover of every box! For some reason, his smug smile seems very appropriate.

February 23, 2017
Aethersphere Harvester - Card set : “Aether Revolt”
Aether makes great fuel for Vehicles, so it makes sense that this Vehicle often fuels Mardu Vehicles.
February 27, 2017

Speedway Fanatic - Card set : “Kaladesh”
Although some may not think it possible, we love Magic at least as much as this lady loves speed.
February 16, 2017
Angelic Gift - Card set : “Battle for Zendikar”
Some people say that love gives you wings, but that seems less impressive when this card can do it for only two mana. Plus, I doubt love can draw you a card.
February 15, 2017
Cathartic Reunion - Card set : “Kaladesh”
There's nothing quite like seeing one of the most important people in your life again after years of separation. Also, call your mom. She misses you.

February 13, 2017
Call for Unity - Card set : “Aether Revolt”

If you're looking to build a deck around this card, here's a Clue: Standard is home to a lot of artifact tokens that would Servo a deck with this card well. Thopter.
February 7, 2017
Paradox Engine - Card set : “Aether Revolt”
Known to many brewers as "Infinite Combo Engine," this card will surely be central to many Johnny decks in the future.
February 6, 2017
Aetherwind Basker - Card set : “Aether Revolt”
We should all aspire to one day be as happy as this enormous Lizard soaking up aether on Pride Rock.
February 3, 2017

Rishkar creates a mana ramp steep enough to launch aggro decks straight to victory! See him in action this weekend at Pro Tour Aether Revolt in Dublin.
February 2, 2017
Glint-Sleeve Siphoner - Card set : “Aether Revolt”
[autocard]Dark Confidant[/autocard] effects are always going to be welcomed into black decks with open arms, and tacking it onto a creature certainly doesn't hurt the situation.
February 1, 2017
Heart of Kiran - Card set : “Aether Revolt”
With [autocard]Smuggler's Copter[/autocard] out of Standard, we needed a new flying Vehicle to fill up our decks. Kiran was more than happy to offer his newly recovered legacy.

January 26, 2017
Caught in the Brights - Card set : “Aether Revolt”
Don't be surprised when this [autocard]Pacifism[/autocard] variant becomes a staple of Aether Revolt Draft. Or at least try to be less surprised than this poor Gremlin.
January 25, 2017
Aethergeode Miner - Card set : “Aether Revolt”
This cheerful Dwarf has two passions in life: mining aethergeodes and, more importantly, triggering revolt.

January 12, 2017
Consulate Dreadnought - Card set : “Aether Revolt”
Seeing "Dreadnought" on a Magic card again should be enough to make every Timmy giddy beyond belief.
January 10, 2017
While she may not officially know them, it's nice to imagine that Trophy Mage gets together with [autocard]Treasure Mage[/autocard] and [autocard]Trinket Mage[/autocard] for artifact hunts every once in a while.
