The equal teams multiplayer format is what I have been playing in various playgroups weekly for the last 15 years. It is a simple, balanced, and time-tested.

Deck Arson: The Art of Burning Libraries by Michael Keen
This article is not meant to establish mill as the be all end all of Magic deck types, but rather to dispel some of the myths surrounding the archetype and honestly disclose both the pros and cons of this core Magic technique.

Budget Building: Episode 5 - RG Beats by Kevin Weber
A deck with less than $5 worth of rares manages to eke out an 8-2 record. A good deck to consider if you're on a shoe-string budget.

Combo of the Day
Delaying Shield Buy + Panoptic Mirror Buy + Aether Snap Buy
Better than the last one I posted since this combo doesn't cost anything once it's on the board altough it costs more to put down. Have the shield in play. Put Panoptic Mirror and imprint Aether Snap Buy on it. During your upkeep make the mirror resolve first, thus removing all counters, then when the shield triggers it has no counters on it. No counters, no damage.
