Full Force Draft – Ixalan RB Pirates

Ixalan is finally here and I’m very excited to sail the seas and fight some dinosaurs! First up, I wanted to try a red/black Pirate draft: We just came off the blazing speed of Amonkhet block, so what better way to start Ixalan than by trying to speed our way through our opponent’s with the…

Eternal – Fallen Oni Challenge

How much can you disrupt an opponent’s plan? Is it possible to run a deck out of units? In this video series, that’s the challenge I accept: For a first, rough draft of a control deck, this didn’t do that bad! 2-3, with a lot of close matches is better than I expected. I like…

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…
