The June 27, 2017 Update

Nicholas Wolfram fell promptly in love with tabletop and video games when he was only two years old, and he has been writing about them since he figured out how words worked. Now he puts together words about Magic, which he started playing way back in 2000.

The Daily Magic Update is a roundup of everything Magic you should know on June 27, 2017. Today's Update is brought to you by Hour of Devastation combo brewing, a deliciously hot topic across all formats right now.

Today's Previews

  1. Chaos Maw| Shazoo | Cohen

For just an extra four mana and the loss of cycling, Sweltering Suns can come with a 6/6 Hellion attached to it. Not a bad deal.

  1. Appeal // Authority | NumotTheNummy | Kenji Egashira

Something smells like pine, wheat, and populate effects. Could it be . . . Green-White Tokens?

  1. Exclusive LR Hour of Devastation Preview Cards! | Limited Resources | Luis Scott-Vargas and Marshall Sutcliffe

The second cycle of Deserts has been unveiled! Although this cycle is less cycle-y than the cycling cycle.

  1. Hollow One | Mana Deprived | First Strike

If you've been looking for your "first-pick-every-time-I-see-it" Draft card, here it is!

  1. Endless Sands | Cascade Games

A Desert Safe Haven? Yes, please!

  1. More previews to come

Keep an eye out for more previews today from Ian Duke, the Wizards Account System, and some of our friends in Italy!

After Those, Read, Watch, or Listen to These

  1. Brewing with Solemnity in Legacy | Channel Fireball | Andrea Mengucci

One of the best ways to get me to read your article is to use the art from Phyrexian Unlife to preview it. Another way is to make it about one of the coolest new combo cards. Mengucci chose both, so here we are.

  1. The Evolution of Black-Green Energy | StarCityGames.com | Jadine Klomparens

Since Kaladesh first dropped, tier 1 Standard black-green decks have gone through quite a few iterations. The latest versions have focused on various energy sources, but there have also been incarnations centered around delirium and straight aggro. For the full recent history, Klomparens has you covered.

What People Are Talking About

  1. Appeal // Authority

One card, two spells, and endless possibilities. Modern, Standard, and Commander brewers are all buzzing about the latest aftermath card and the craziest blowouts they can pull off with it.

Deck of the Day

  1. Jim Wilks's Blue-Black Cycling

There may just be something to these Blue-Black Cycling decks in Amonkhet Limited. Both Grand Prix Sydney and Grand Prix Cleveland had versions on the winning team. Here's Jim Wilks's take on the deck from GP Sydney.
