Magic : The Gathering - Unpacking a Rivals of Ixalan booster pack

Magic : The Gathering - Unpacking a Rivals of Ixalan booster pack

Ron Duwell

Rivals of Ixalan is here, and if you haven’t heard, it’s an absolutely crazy set. Ixalan was berated as a set for being too casual and based on simple attack/don’t block mechanics, but Rivals of Ixalan has its own issues way off on the other side of the spectrum. Rare cards once again sit atop the food chain, replacing common and uncommon synergies that dominated Ixalan. In fact, these...

Magic: The Gathering Rivals of Ixalan – Our 10-ish Favorite Rare Cards

Magic: The Gathering Rivals of Ixalan – Our 10-ish Favorite Rare Cards

Ron Duwell

After covering the common and uncommon cards last week, I’m convinced that Rivals of Ixalan will be better received than its predecessor set, Ixalan.

If this is...

For those who don’t know, Unstable is the latest one-off set which will only be in publication for a short time. Like Masters and Conspiracy sets,...

We’re a week into our adventures in Ixalan, and opinions have been sailing pretty high. The tribal synergies don’t quite have the super high payoffs we were expecting, but the flavor and mechanics of many cards have been worthwhile. Plus, crashing in with a Charging Monstrosaur on turn 4 feels just as marvelous as I expected it to. Since last week, I’m two Limited decks deep and have a...

Magic: The Gathering - Our favorite Rares for Ixalan Limited

Ron Duwell

And we’re closing out Ixalan with the big cards that we most want to play with but most likely won’t get to. These are the best Rares, and you’ll be lucky to scoop one of these first pick during your drafts over the coming months. 1. Burning Sun’s Avatar Burning Sun’s Avatar is a 6/6 for six mana, which is great, but if you want to play him, you better be sure you’re hardcore into...
