Matchup Mulligan: UR Delver

Grixis Phoenix Hand Answer Hand 10: (on the play) » Keep or Mulligan? Mulligan If you were smart enough to ignore my sideboarding advice and decided to keep in Empty the Warrens, I think this is a soft keep. The issue is that the Arclight Phoenix decks have anywhere between three and five answers to Goblin tokens, that said, you're in a position where they can't race you even Read More »

My name is Marcus Ewaldh and I started playing Magic around 1995. I became a competitive player years later and started playing Legacy in 2009. It was love at first sight.

TES Matchup Battles: Grixis Phoenix

Grixis Phoenix is the new kid on the block, as far as Legacy decks go. This is due to the recent printing of Arclight Phoenix. The reason this card is legacy playable is because of an older card, Buried Alive. Being able to cast a couple of spells and then a Buried Alive to retrieve 3 copies of Arclight Phoenix putting them into your graveyard and then immediately into play, Read More »
