Clear The Land And The Fundamental Turn

Editor’s Note: A long time ago, the first Magic website was The Dojo – a site that is still legendary for publishing some of the most fundamental principles of Magic. Almost all strategical theory can be traced back to the Dojo’s loyal writers, and any serious Magic player owes these old vets a debt of…

The End Of A Crappy Contest

Frighteningly, a lot of the Make Your Own Crap Rare submissions WEREN’T THAT BAD,indicating that a lot of people don’t know how hard it is to make a bad card.

A Review Of The Year 2000 In Magic

Well, with this piece I officially become the FIRST CANADIAN MAGIC WRITER TO WRITE A MAGIC REVIEW! Drunk with power, I will undoubtedly beat up little kids for their lunch money, steal their cards, and mug old ladies. Before that happens, however, I will have to take a short look at the major events as…

The Great Alaskan Team Sealed Match

THE GREAT ALASKAN TEAM SEALED MATCH: PROLOGUE, By the Ferrett "Hey," said , author of FINAL JUDGEMENT, "Anyone wanna have a Team Sealed tourney?" We here in Alaska all leaped at the opportunity, of course. It sounded like a fun way to spend the day, since we could all form various ridiculously-cliquey teams and trashtalk…

Peace of Mind: Perseverance

Never give up. No, really, even when you’re 0-2, and you know you’re not going to make Top 8 short of a miracle. Miracles are in short supply nowadays (just ask The Vatican; and here we thought that approaching the millennium would herald all SORTS of interesting events), and a lot of people will start…

We may be very good players, but due to preoccupations like families and jobs, we can’t play as often…

I’m Only Happy When It Snows, or Something

Since I didn’t play in a tourney this weekend, does that mean I have to write a real article? Does that mean I actually have to think about a topic and get busy with my awesome arguments which will sway a grand total of zero people, but fire up the troops who already see things…

Good Beats: Mind Sports

As an American citizen, I had to endure quite a media circus over the past few weeks. The outcome of a very important event was in doubt. I would read the newspaper each morning with bated breath, looking for more information, always wondering how and when this huge spectacle would play out. After much waiting,…

FINAL JUDGEMENT: The Multiplayer Bandwagon

Thanks to everyone who sent Lisa birthday greetings – again, too numerous to mention by name. I turned on her computer before she got up on Tuesday and opened her mailbox so that they’d be waiting for her. She was most pleased. I also want to thank all the folks who have yet to mail…
