Card Advantage by Old Man Magic
It took me awhile to figure out where my blue mage roots came from. Then it hit me. Drawing cards is awesome!

Locus of Control by Kevin Weber
I finally realized why I'm a better Magic player than the others at the coffeeshop. And it has nothing to do with fundamentals or tactics. It's something much simpler.

Combo of the Day
Zur the Enchanter Buy + Stasis Buy + Tel-Jilad Stylus Buy
+ Reconnaissance Buy*

{0}: Opponent skips their next untap step. (Play only during your combat phase and only once per turn.)
* I personally don't see this as a four card combo since you only need Reconnaissance and Stasis in your deck (instead of in your hand) for this to work. Also, Reconnaissance isn't 100% crucial here since it's only purpose is to protect Zur from potential blockers.
