Strictly Eternal 101 – Erector Sets for Dummies

Howdy folks! It’s time for another edition of Rector: I Hardly Knew Her; an Introspective Look into the History of the Erector Set! Or rather, a little ditty about Legacy. This week we’re gonna take a look at two fun little lists both tied together by one card. That card? ! Academy Rector is always just waiting in the wings to be busted wide open. As Wizards continues to print hellaciously stupid overcosted enchantments that do very mean things, Rector continues to be a card that fetches those enchantments essentially for free. That being said, in a world of this

Strictly Eternal 101 – It’s Always (Blood) Sunny in Philadelphia

Howdy folks, we’re back again with another edition of The Danny Devito Story: A Biography in Pictures!  Or rather, some spicy Legacy. This week, we dispel a little bit of hype.  Or at least, I hope we do.  Y’see, the hype around the card is just a little too much.  So much so that since Rivals of Ixalan’s release, the card has dipped hard below its initial hyped price of $10+.

Let’s get to the thick of it, shall we? Gitaxian Probe Let me get started by putting it out there: I think Phyrexian Mana is just about the worst, most possibly overly broken mechanic that has ever been created.  I don’t think Dredge, Storm, or even Affinity compare to the absurdity of Phyrexian Mana. It’s that much of a mistake.

Strictly Eternal 101 – Fish are Friends, Not Food

Strictly Eternal 101 – Fish are Friends, Not Food Howdy folks, it’s Joe again for another fine fresh episode of the The Deadliest Catch. Wait. No. That’s not quite right. We’ll get it one of these days, I’m sure, but for right now it’s another weekly dig at a spicy Legacy list. This week we’ve got a list that we affectionately call “Calamari.” No, we’re not deep frying Magic cards and making them taste like sweet sweet desire (although that might be delicious, who knows). Instead we’re jamming creatures like Elder Deep-Fiend! This is a Nic Fit list; all Nic
