Two weeks ago, Wizards of the Coast announced a new, officially-sanctioned constructed format, and … for some reason people think it’s a big deal? They’re like, excited to brew new decks for it and stuff?
Personally, I don’t think there’s any point to putting too much thought into the new Pioneer format just yet. And by the end of this article, you might agree with me.
Brawl has finally come to Magic Arena! After a bit of finagling and a fun preview event, Magic‘s newest Wizards-supported format has finally found its way to Magic‘s newest online platform.
If the fun I’ve had playing Standard Singleton events is any indication, I’m going to have a blast playing Brawl on Magic Arena. But first, I have to select my Throne of Eldraine season Brawl Commander – and the Legendary Creatures and Planeswalkers below are at the top of my list.
Going into Saturday’s Modern Madness Qualifier at MagicFest Vegas, I had middling expectations. I didn’t consider my Dimir Death’s Shadow deck to be well-positioned, and I hadn’t been playing my tightest throughout the weekend. Still, I figured I’d be able to win at least two or three rounds, which would be good enough for some prize tix and a good time.
Instead, on the back of a lot of luck, some (mostly) tight play, and way too much Death’s Shadow math, I ended up making it to the finals of Saturday’s Qualifier. This is how a day that started with the purchase of “one last Plague Engineer” and plans to eat at Wahlburger’s with my friend Trevor ended eight and a half hours later, with me being one Primeval Titan away from playing in Sunday’s Modern Madness Invitational.
