We are currently on hiatus and are unsure of a return time.

Playable Magic is a casual-play-focused blog about Magic: the Gathering. Our articles are written by two friends who have a passion for the game, a hunger for new ideas, and a desire to sow the seeds of creativity into as many Magic players as possible.

Articles are posted each Monday and Thursday, from one of our four categories:

  • Mind over Commander: Ideas, strategies, and synergies for building Commander decks
  • New Perspectives: Close looks at cards that are overlooked by most players, as well as alternative ways to use more well-known cards.
  • Eye of the Stack: In-depth explanations of Magic's rules, plus interesting ways to exploit them
  • Lore Seeker: Overviews of topics from Magic's lore, plus interesting details and maybe even some theory-crafting along the way. 

By joining our Patreon, you can help us continue to bring you awesome content on a consistent basis. Domains and hosting aren't cheap, and this content takes a lot of time and energy to create! It would mean the world to us if running the site did not cost us money.
$22.50 of $100 per month
Game Night Recaps: If we hit $100 a month, we'll start writing dramatized summaries of our biweekly Magic nights, to be posted every other weekend. Have you ever wondered what it's like to play our weirdo commander decks against one another (and our weird-deck-loving friends)? If we reach $100, you will wonder no more!
