    We have a MM2015 preview card! Is it something new we have never seen before? Well, no, Modern Masters is entirely reprints. So is it a really good, expensive card that sees serious constructed play and costs a bundle being reprinted in a new way? Yes, yes it is.

    Griselbrand presents: 666 Ways to Sacrifice Your Creatures! (Well, actually there are only 66 Demons, and not all of them ask for sacrifices, but going with that as a tagline would have felt lame. Also, Demons lie. Deal with it.) Updated through Kaladesh, Magic Origins and Commander 2015/Conspiracy: Take The Crown. Happy Halloween!

    Are you interested in the parallel universe in which (Guardian of the Guildpact) reigns supreme?

If you're interested in the strange world that is Pauper (commons only Magic), look inside for a breakdown of the Affinity archetype, a little strategy and a test spin in the Tournament Practice Room.
