The London Mulligan, and the Modern Format

Greetings everyone, and welcome back to some more Modern Musings with yours truly. I hope you all have had a good weekend, and (if you are an Marvel fan like I am) are eagerly awaiting Avenger: Endgame this coming weekend. I can’t believe it’s nearing the end of April already.

Bring Out Your Dredge!

Hi everybody, and welcome back to Strictly Average for another article. Although I normally write about Modern, this one is going to be a bit…different. It’s going to be about me…kind of. Full disclosure, I don’t often like talking about me. With the exception of being around friends in private conversations, and as long as I’m feeling ok, I’m generally kind of quiet when the subject becomes “me”. However this past weekend (author’s note: two weekends ago) at the SCG Cincinnati Team Open weekend I had a great time not just with playing Magic: the Gathering, but also feeling like I
