Full Force Draft – Modern Cube

You may notice something a little different about this week. No more Hour of Devastation! We were lucky enough to get a crack at the Modern Cube yet again and I didn’t let that go to waste. Cube only comes by once in a while, so we want to make sure to maximize how much…

Full Force Draft – Hour of Devastation UB Cycling

Over the last two weeks we spent time reviewing the faster tempo archetypes of UR Spells and UW Fliers, where we concentrated on killing the opponent quickly. This week, we go a slower route with UB Cycling: There has been a lot of talk about how Hour of Devastation is a much faster format than…

Full Force Draft – Hour of Devastation UW Embalm

Last week we delved into UR Spells, my current front-runner for best deck of the format. Can the power of UW Embalm and fliers overthrow it? UW is a deck that has stood the test of time, across many formats. Combine cheap fliers, some tempo, and maybe some combat tricks/removal and you have the makings…

Full Force Draft – Hour of Devastation UR Spells

Last week we delved into UG ramp, for a slower take on the format, but this week we’re going to speed things up a notch and try to smash through with UR tempo/spells: This may be my current favourite deck in Hour of Devastation. As I stated in last week’s article, it’s my firm belief…

Full Force Draft – Hour of Devastation Ramp

Last week we took a slight detour from the voted on archetypes to try out building a mill deck around Fraying Sanity, but we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming this week, with the Blue-Green Ramp deck everyone requested! (Slight detour pictured above) The format is starting to solidify and it seems to be universally…

Full Force Draft – WB Mummies

The Hour of Promise has arrived! Revel as our God-Pharaoh… Oh. Well, let’s make the best of this, shall we? This week we’re jumping back into the Egyptian-themed Amonkhet block with a quick test spin in the new build of the White-Black Zombies deck. Amonkhet became well known for it’s speed by the end of…

Full Force Draft – Approach of the Second Sun

Last week, Full Force looked at the changing shape of AKH limited; the massive shift from a mid-range or slower format to a hyper-aggressive one. This week I’m going to see if the shift is entirely warranted. Keeping in mind that most decks will be focused on aggression, can an incredibly defense deck still work?…

Full Force Draft – Slitherblade

is the new hotness in Amonkhet draft. As the format has gone on, the opinion has evolved on how aggressive the format is and what cards are viable. Nowhere is this more apparent that in the recent performance of Popularized on the Pro Tour by Christian Calcano and then later in article form at Channel Fireball…

Full Force Cartouches

By now everyone knows the power of pairing Trials and Cartouches, but Twitter voted and wanted to know; what happens when you take *every* Cartouche and Trial? Do I have what it takes to prove myself worthy? Not really as it turns out. This was a particularly tough Full Force challenge and ended up being…
