The Cutting Room Floor: The Reserved List

“The Cutting Room Floor: The Reserved List”

One of Magic’s longest standing points of debate is that of the “Reserved List,” or a list of cards that Wizards has sealed in what is the equivalent of a logical ‘vault’ never to be reprinted in any form of any kind again. This list dates back to the game’s origins with cards from Alpha going all the way through Urza’s Destiny.

Tales of the Squire – Story Time

Hello kids, this week we are going to do something a little bit different. We are going to have story time, and I’ll tell you why. I know that when I read a tournament report, I don’t really need to know what happened on turn 3 when you cast Knight of the Reliquary and your opponent Dazed. I can read the title of your article or skim to the end to see that you took 2nd in a crushing defeat in the finals. Now I realize this is hypocritical because I have written tournament reports before doing exactly what I do not really care for, but oh well. I will probably continue to write tournament reports if I do well. Continue reading Tales of the Squire – Story Time
