"The Home Brewery" - Stepping Outside the Box to Make a Competitive Deck

"The Home Brewery" Stepping Outside the Box to Make a Competitive Deck and Fresh Honey from the Beehive Introduction Hey y’all! I’m pleased to be back to the keyboard again, plugging away for Dead Draw Gaming.

"Exploring the Dark Side of the (Sun &) Moon" - Changes in the Standard Format

"Exploring the Dark Side of the (Sun &) Moon" Changes in the Standard Format Introduction Hey Dead Drawers, Caleb back once again today. I recently took home a victory at a Standard format League Challenge. While this is by no means a significant accomplishment, it shed some much needed light on the format that I haven’t been playing very much lately. I tried my very best to “not care” about this event, but being the try-hard that I am, I caved, and spent a few hours cramming to try and figure out the best deck to play for this little...
