Next week: What’s your favorite aspect of Magic’s history?

 

Worth listening: Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy, ep. 252: The History of Magic: The Gathering, where author Titus Chalk discusses his new book Generation Decks: The Unofficial History of Gaming Phenomenon Magic: The Gathering.

 

Strategy:  

 

What is color hate?

 

Should you play?

  • Feels targeted
  • Do you sideboard?
  • Is there a lot of variance in opponents?
  • You are weak to a limited color palette or strats

 

Our opinions on the applicability of color hate, should you play these cards.

 

If you play color hate, what kind should you play?

 

Three categories

  • Direct pain or gain from colors
  • Land type hate
  • Protection from color

 

Choosing the best ones

  • Best to play is not completely dead in hand otherwise
  • Better if effects many players
  • Better if you choose the color
  • Better if able to change the text or type (i.e, Sleight of Mind or Distorting Lens)
  • Better if against all colors except one (i.e., Inundate)
