Card Advantage: The Most Understood Concept in Magic by Jeff Fullmer
I have found that beginners generally underestimate the impact card advantage has on the game and expert players usually overestimate the impact of one type of card advantage (simple card advantage)

MTG Format: Secret Alliances by aznepyon7
Secret Alliances is a casual multiplayer format that I sometimes play with friends. It's a great change from competitive MTG environment that I usually play. I've always had a blast playing it and I hope that you guys will enjoy it as well.

Combo of the Day
Skill Borrower Buy + Devoted Druid Buy + Dominating Licid Buy
This works with any licid.

1. Have Skill Borrower (and one other creature in play.)
2. Have Licid ontop of library, activate Skill Borrower and attach it to a creature.
3. Have Devoted Druid ontop of library; Skill Borrower is still an enchantment attached to a creature and now gains Devoted Druid's abilities. Since -1/-1 counters can't kill an enchantment, you can generate infinite mana.
