MTG - Post-Rotation: Selling and Buying (Part 1) -
Thanks to MTG Quick Shop for letting us re-blog “Post-Rotation: Selling and Buying (Part 1)” here on Win Target Game. Today, he takes a look at some cards that you should probably look into selling or buys. Note these opinions are the views of the guest author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Win Target Game staff…
Commanding Opinion - Myojin of Seeing Winds -
“Fun” in EDH is pretty subjective. There are so many ways to have fun in this game: Combos, hugging the group, turning creatures sideways, complaining about degenerate strategies, etc. Some ways that are MOST fun for me: If I can do it cheaply, if I do one thing really well, and if my opponents remind me my commander doesn’t work…
Another fantastic guest blog article, this time about a Myojin of Seeing Winds EDH deck. Yes, it works :)

MTGDECKCHECK's response to the metamorphosis Article -
Alright big announcements were made today.
I’m sure everyone who follows this, (with the exception of the wifers) has already read that Khans will be the last 3 set block. Going forward the Blocks will now consist of 2 sets creating 3 blocks per year!
In addition M16, though it will probably…
Great take. I don’t know that the secondary market for Standard cards will be necessarily cheaper with the new 3-block Standard, but prices MAY be more evened out if there are more playable archetypes.
I especially like the idea that we’ll be getting Kaijudo designers integrated into the Magic team. Fresh perspectives are always good.
Still, we’re not seeing the new Standard until 2016. So it’s still a while before we know how it will actually change the game.
william-dearborn said: Can you explain in simple english how Illusionary Mask works?
Simple English: You pay mana that would at least cover the mana cost of a creature. You can pay additional mana to hide which creature you chose. So, if a creature had mana cost 3WW, you could pay 3WW or 5WW, but you couldn’t pay 4W or 2. The creature card is put onto the battlefield face down, so it’s a 2/2 colorless creature with no names, abilities, creature types, and so on. If that creature would assign or deal damage, be dealt damage, or become tapped, first you turn it face up then do whatever you were going to do.
Simpler English: Cast a creature but hide it. It comes out of hiding if it does pretty much anything.
Bad Shakespearean English: Thy creature, unsure of form and purpose, doth remain shielded from mine eyes. Tho I knowest thy summoning was proper, and the mana thy bringeth forth from the lands, twas plenty. It sits and waits, beckoning the night to approach but fright’ned of that very darkness. Zounds! Whence thy creature strike verily unto thine enemies, or whence it tappeth, remove thy mask and bare all ‘fore God and man. Activateth thy mask only as a sorcery.
Ladies and gentlemen, Matt Tabak.

Magic the Gathering's New Two-Set Block Paradigm -
This morning, Mark Rosewater penned an article called Metamorphosis, breaking some huge Magic: the Gathering news. I highly recommend you read it. This new paradigm is going to change Magic design going forward. Not only will Magic being going to a new block structure, but after 2015, there will be no more new Core Sets.
Today, we have Dragon Throne of Tarkir, a Legendary Artifact from Khans of Tarkir. Besides the fact that people are quite excited to be able to equip a Chair a la Hulk Hogan, it may actually turn out to be a very interesting card.
