He enjoys content creation, baseball, politics, and gaming.  When it comes to Magic: The Gathering, he tends to lean towards Selesnya (G/W).

Magic Untapped interviews one of Magic: The Gathering's newest artists about her art, inspirations, and advice for up-and-coming artists.

Wizards of the Coast really seems to like cutting out new MTG mechanics, don't they?

In 1996, an unusual Magic: The Gathering playtest card was put in an impossible situation. And decisions had to be made.

Time Spiral had an odd new mechanic that almost made it past playtesting.

Is it possible to purely hate a Magic card? If you ever heard of Sorrow's Path, then yes. Yes, it is.

In the late 90s, a string of cards had one of the more unusual running gags in Magic history.

In 2003, a rare card from Tempest was reprinted as an even more rare foil, limited-run, promotional card. High secondary market value ensued.

For more than a decade, artist Adam Paquette has made art for more than 100 Magic: The Gathering cards and participated in a Q&A with Magic Untapped about it all.

One card in the Stranger Things Secret Lair needed a change after a problematic letter issue.

Back in 2019 Magic gave the rare ruling of removing someone from the Magic Hall of Fame for cheating.
