And welcome back to our last Rules Tip of the week (don’t worry, we’ll be back again on Monday)! Today we’ll be going over . This Aetherborn Rogue will help you to whatever luxury you want… from the top of your opponent’s library, that is. When Gonti enters the battlefield, you get to look at […]
Drawing cards is fun, right? Lands that draw cards are even more fun, right? Well, is a fun card! It’s pretty simple on the surface: You can tap it for a colorless mana to cast spells and pay for various things (as is normal for most lands), but you can also use it to spread […]
Welcome back to the Rules Tip Blog! Today we’ll be covering Commander and Meld cards (mostly and )! The first bit is the most common question we’ve heard about since the spoiling: What if one of her constituent parts is my Commander?
