7-Point Highlander MTGO League – lessons learned for European Highlander

by Paul W. Over the last couple of weeks, I exposed myself for the first time in months to a competitive Highlander tournament-setting (or rather, as competitive as a non-sanctioned format can ever dream of being, but you get the idea…) by participating in a 200+ player 7 Point Highlander (7PH) league on MTGO, equating to 10 rounds of Swiss with a cut to Top […]

Summer Musings (or: Why Mystic Sanctuary is busted)

by Paul W. From 07/30 – 08/02 we held an eight-player gathering which resulted in four glorious days of barbecue, sunbathing and – of course – exchanging ideas about and playing our beloved format highlander. As I expect my readers to bemost interested in the format-related outcomes of the bootcamp, I will skip the parts about how enjoyable and valuable of a social experience this […]

How to win a MGM – Azorius Midrange Control

By Jonny A. Hey there, my name is Jonny and I just won the last MetaGameMasters tournament. While I am usually not a big fan of deck guides for well-known archetypes I thought I use this call for a community article to channel my desire to entertain the highlander community and some of you might remember my weekly highlander column several years ago which served […]

2020 – An early retrospective

by Paul W. In this rendition, I will attempt to make sense of yet another year of Highlander. Now, I won’t talk about the political developments within the format, its leadership and the manifold community initiatives that helped navigating us through Covid and kept the player-base engaged in these challenging times. Instead, I want to use the cards that entered (and left) the format in […]

Magic Monday 26/10/2020 – Tournament Report (by Paul W.)

My esteemed readership, In case you have not heard the news: Highlander is happening more regularly now on Cockatrice. Aesthetics and convenience in operation aside, the software is really helpful in cramming a lot of games into a small timeframe. We also found a tournament mode which allows to have almost no downtime between matches, as we simply rotate between tables once a match has […]

Going Undefeated at MGM15 with Mardu Superfriends

by Dominik B. My allegiance to the Mardu clan basically boils down to two factors: 1. I like it. 2. I can’t afford blue dual lands (for now). Being a deck builder at heart, I dedicated a lot of testing, brewing, theorizing, discarding lists, getting stomped at FNMs and being told that I cripple myself by excluding blue and green, to the idea that Mardu […]
