Friday night saw six Magic players come to the table for an 8.00pm start to the game. Six players is often considered a bad number for melee, since with the range of influence rule each player has just one opponent who is out of their range. This can often lead to inadvertent kingmaking where a..

Jeremy N took out the final competitive round in this year’s league. It turns out players should being either flying defence, or creature removal. Only Keith was smart, and eventually he ran out of cards! Here are the final standings for 2015: The top 8 names are in green. Leanne J in ninth place will..
There was a short but not sweet round this month. After the infinite combo won the day there was a spirited discussion about how many rounds have ended this way in 2015. I think almost half the rounds this year have effectively halted in the face of one combo or another. This isn’t about picking..
