Enjoy! This is a project I've been working on to try to piece together as additional content for my YouTube channel. I don't have a real set release schedule yet but will be hammering that down hopefully to probably every month or so.

I also made a small brain fart in this article, that I didn't realize til now. Brain farts are great.

I realized this morning (with my brain in vacation mode earlier this week when writing the article) that mentioning True-Name Nemesis in the first card is moot because it can't actually be targeted. My brain was focusing on the "damage" portion of it.

  • Can I request 9th - 12th gets a Badlands, because they're bad and didn't top 8, and 13th through 16th to get scrublands, because they're scrubs who BARELY Top 16ed?

    (this is a joke post)

  • Just saw this card now and I love it. Nihil Spellbomb is my favorite grave hate spell, and was a 1-of in any non-pure-combo black deck I've played for years. I literally yesterday was working on a Trinket Mage deck thinking "this list would be better as RUG over BUG, but I really want to run Nihil Spellbomb. This will be good in small numbers for a wide spread of archetypes. I get that this isn't particularly as sexy as Breach, but I suspect in the long run this is the Theros card that will see the most play and win the most games.
