The list is in alphabetical order, as we think that ranking them isn't fair. This is because that we believe that each blog, as long as it is well-presented and well-written enough to enjoy, has its own flavor and value to add to the Magic the Gathering community.
We will be adding to this best MTG blogs list on a fairly regular basis. We will also be revising it to remove those sadly no longer kept current. If you have a blog that you'd like to see added to our list, let us know in the comments!
(Note: Some great Magic resources such as Deckbox, MTG Stocks, and Tappedout are not listed here because they are not technically blogs. Those are for another article! However, I AM including forums, podcasts, and video series that are still active.)
So without further ado, here is our list.
Magic the Gathering designer Mark Rosewater is extremely active on social media connecting with MTG fans all the time. His Tumblr blog Blogatog is full of fan Q&A, his famous little comic Tales From the Pit, among other MTG related things. Even if you're not really a Tumblr user, it's still worth looking at.
Brainstorm Brewery (http://brainstormbrewery.com/category/articles/) - PODCAST
While most famous for their podcasts, Brainstorm Brewery does publish articles on occasion, although it's been a bit. Their podcast is great, though, too. So if you're into Magic podcast banter, this is a must-listen.
Breakfast with Nerds (YouTube Channel)
This YouTube channel has both Magic: the Gathering and Pokemon Trading Card Game content. New episodes on Wednesdays & Saturdays. Check them out!
The Casual Crusader (www.casualcrusader.com)
Casual MTG players unite! The Casual Crusader is a great blog that looks at Magic from a casual point of view.
Channel Fireball (www.channelfireball.com/articles)
One of the bigger MTG retailers, Channel Fireball has a lot of great Magic strategy and decklist articles. They have some of the best players in the game writing for them, including co-founder Luis Scott-Vargas, better known as LSV. Their YouTube Channel features pros blowing up the world with all kinds of decks, including LSV himself. But the content is accessible for every level of Magic player.
Crazy About Magic the Gathering (https://crazyaboutmtg.wordpress.com/)
A contributor to Gaming Successfully, Kai Chang has his own blog, Crazy About Magic the Gathering, and it's getting better all the time. This isn't just because he's written for this site; his blog is good.
Daily MTG (http://magic.wizards.com/en/content/articles)
No list of MTG blogs would be complete without Daily MTG, which is Wizards of the Coast's official blog. It's pretty good, too. Mark Rosewater's Making Magic articles are among the most popular on there, and for good reason!
EDHREC Articles (articles.edhrec.com)
The premier resource for EDH deck lists and deck building resources now has articles! It's great to see quality blogging being done on one of my favorite Magic the Gathering sites ever.
Gathering Magic (www.gatheringmagic.com)
Once known as Mana Nation, Gathering Magic is one of the premier Magic the Gathering blogs on the internet. Owned by CoolStuff Inc, it has some of the best Magic writers around. The sheer diversity of content on their site is what makes them so good. They cover pretty much any format you can think of.
General Damage Control (www.generaldamagecontrol.com)
If you're looking for a solid EDH / Commander blog, General Damage Control is a good one. The series about Generals (Commanders) that Deserve Their Bad Reputation is particularly good!
Hipsters of the Coast (www.hipstersofthecoast.com)
A fun Magic blog that's been starting to get more Hearthstone content, if you're into that sort of thing. Still a good MTG blog regardless.
If Lands Could Kill (http://mtgcast.com/author/knifecityalchemist) - PODCAST
This podcast was suggested to us. Their byline reads: "Magic: the Gathering for novices, by novices. Weekly comedy MTG podcast and not-so-weekly Versus videos." Good stuff.
Kitchen Table MTG Forum (www.kitchentablemtg.com/forum/)
While technically not a blog, the Kitchen Table MTG forum has some great discussion threads going on a regular basis. It's definitely worth checking out.
And actually they do have some blogs, it appears.
Land Drop Go (www.landdropgo.com)
This newer Magic the Gathering blog already has some fine articles on it, including what looks to be a great article series about drafting. Definitely worth checking out!
MTGandMe (YouTube Channel)
This YouTube channel has great old school openings, crack-a-packs and random buys! Great stuff and worth subscribing to!
Quiet Speculation (www.quietspeculation.com)
While this MTG finance oriented blog is mostly subscription-based, there is some free content on here occasionally that's worth reading. Also, some of the free Trader Tools are good if you like to watch price trends.
While first and foremost a MTG card store, their blog has been taking a lot of content submissions recently. The writing there is pretty good, and they feature Magic with Zuby's podcast there, as well.
Life Begins at 20 - YouTube Channel
This UK MTG YouTuber has taken off pretty fast. He has a lot of Cube-related content, among other things.
Magic at TCGPlayer (magic.tcgplayer.com)
It's no secret that Magic the Gathering is one of TCGPlayer's top sellers. So it's not surprising that they pay people to write articles for them. They actually have one of the oldest Magic blogs out there. It's still one of the better ones.
Magic Judge Rules Blog (blogs.magicjudges.org/rulestips/)
While Magicjudges.org is mostly just about Magic the Gathering Judges news, they do have a useful blog about Magic Rules Tips. It has some useful advice that's worth checking out.
Magic with Zuby (http://magicwithzuby.com/) - PODCAST
Great podcast for Magic the Gathering fans to definitely listen to on a regular basis. Also, check out his YouTube channel, Gaming with Zuby, for occasional MTG content.
Mana Leak (http://www.manaleak.com/mtguk/)
A tabletop gaming website from the UK, they have a huge Magic the Gathering section. It does feature other games, as well, but there's plenty of Magic content published all the time.
Modern Nexus (www.modernnexus.com)
A blog purely about Magic's Modern format. It's one of the best Modern format blogs out there for sure.
MTG Card Market (http://articles.mtgcardmarket.com/category/articles/)
A fairly large MTG and gaming store, MTG Card Market also maintains a pretty good blog worth reading.
MTG Color Pie (mtgcolorpie.com)
MTG Color Pie advertises itself as "A Magic: The Gathering blog about card design, humor and community." It's mostly about Magic card design, which is awesome!
MTG Goldfish (www.mtggoldfish.com)
Goldfish has become one of the top MTG blogs on the planet. A lot of that has to do with Seth, better known as SaffronOlive. One of the best deck brewers around, he's as famous for his butchering card names as he is for his very creative decks, many of which go on to produce some good tournament results. But everything on the site is good, especially their metagame analysis and various video series.
MTG Headquarters (https://www.youtube.com/user/mtgheadquarters)
One of the more polarizing figures in the Magic the Gathering Community, we've been watching his channel since the beginning. He makes some of the best Magic product openings out there. No matter how you feel about his opinions on things, he does still produce great videos. He also probably has the best giveaways ever.
MTG Lion (www.youtube.com/user/mtglion)
Another channel we've been watching since early on, MTG Lion has been through a couple of name changes. He deals primarily with MTG finance topics, so if that's not your speed, that's OK. But he does some great contests and his opinions on cards are absolutely spot on more often than not.
MTG Price (blog.mtgprice.com)
While you need a PROTRADER subscription to access a lot of their content, the financial insights into Magic the Gathering available for free are still quite good. While many hate the MTG Finance crowd, there's still good content here nevertheless. And what's available for free is actually pretty good.
MTG Realm (mtg-realm.blogspot.com)
This blog is focused on community news and spoilers from upcoming Magic sets. It's one of the more popular out on the Web.
MTG Salvation (www.mtgsalvation.com)
While Salvation is primarily forums now, there are still some good articles to be read on here. Their quality control isn't quite what it was years back, but it's a good community site.
Paper Champion (paperchampion.net)
This blog has a lot of great contributors of both Magic the Gathering articles and YouTube videos. Definitely one worth following.
While technically a Magic the Gathering Online blog, there's a lot of content here that's still enjoyable for the both paper (traditional) Magic the Gathering.
Star City Games (www.starcitygames.com)
No MTG blog list could be complete without mentioning the articles of the premier Magic card retailer, Star City Games. While you have to be a Premier member to read a lot of their articles, the Select (free) articles are worth reading, too! As one of the first major MTG content creators, it's no surprise that they're still one of the best MTG blogs around. You should also check out their YouTube Channel.
Sylvan Studies (www.sylvanstudies.com)
"Magic The Gathering news, articles, and forums - all under one roof." That's the mission of one of the newer MTG blogs out there, Sylvan Studies. It's definitely worth following!
The Mana Source - YouTube Channel
Wedge is one of our favorite MTG content creators, so of course, The Mana Source is going to be on this list. He covers a wide variety of topics, so there's a video for everybody!
Tolarian Community College - YouTube Channel
The "Professor" has become a big hit among the Magic the Gathering community. His product reviews are the best, and his deck tech videos are awesome. We particularly like his box break games, where he tries to make back the value in a box, and keeps breaking them until he doesn't.
TotalMTG - YouTube Channel
Lots of great deck techs on this channel! While many of them are based on building them on a budget on Magic the Gathering Online (MTGO) they are still great lists nonetheless!
TriHards Podcast @ MTGCast
This MTGCast podcast was suggested by a reader. Seems like a good one!
These are a few other MTG blogs that we also suggest taking a look at:
Magic the Gathering Adventures (http://mtgadventures.blogspot.com/)
What I especially like about this MTG blog is the unique deck builds found here. This blog has been around a long time, too. It has lots of pictures!
The Weekly Wars (https://theweeklywars.wordpress.com/)
This Wordpress blog is fairly well updated and deals mostly with "eternal" formats such as Modern, Legacy, and Pauper.
This list is completely subjective, made from personal searches and suggestions. We were not in any way compensated for any listing in this "Best Of" article.
