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.
AlbyMTG (YouTube Channel)
A YouTube channel about talking about playing with cardboard. Gotta love that! Better check out this video about the Top 5 Rabbits in Magic the Gathering!
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 Card Bazaar (YouTube Channel)
Most famous for their Magic the Gathering History series, Card Anthology!
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.
Chuck Wagon MTG (YouTube Channel)
An up and coming YouTube channel who is "Making the world a better place, one booster pack at a time..."
Commanders Brew (Podcast)
Just discovered this great MtG Commander-related podcast. They have a great series called "Achievement Unlocked" which refers to trying to win a game of Commander in particular ways. Good stuff.
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!
Dijital Llama (YouTube)
Tim of Dijital Llama is an amateur MtG content creator, lover of jank, tribal decks, commander, and all things casual. Still got a foot in the door with Games Workshop too!
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.
Haus of Magic (YouTube Channel)
Haus of Magic is a YouTube channel created by a married Magic: the Gathering couple just living their life and fighting with cards. (We were really happy to have Erik and Cassie join us for an interview!)
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.
Jake and Joel are Magic (YouTube Channel)
Another great YouTube channel. Jake and Joel are Magic is a Comedy MtG YouTube channel. Their tagline is: Real. Funny. Magic. Subscribe to them on YouTube for silliness. Jake and Joel's 8 minute deck techs are Magic! (Interviewed J&J here.)
King of Jank (YouTube Channel)
Do you like (really bad) jokes and MTG? You came to the right place! XD
Kitchen Table MTG Forum (www.kitchentablemtg.com/forum/)
While technically not a blog itself, the Kitchen Table MTG forum has some great discussion threads going on a regular basis. It's definitely worth checking out. And they do have some blogs. Also, they are the creators of #FridayMTG on Twitter, which is an awesome way to discover some great MtG content!
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. (Check out our interview!)
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 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!
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.

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 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.

A twitch.tv gaming extraordinaire, Cody Cockerham runs the Nerd Knowledge Pool stream! While Magic the Gathering Online isn’t the only thing he streams, it’s a big part of what he does.

This blog has a lot of great contributors of both Magic the Gathering articles and YouTube videos. Definitely one worth following.
Path to TCGs (YouTube Channel)
YouTube channel with tons of Magic the Gathering pack openings. Also features some other TCGs, including Pokemon, as well. Definitely worth checking out!
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 MTG (YouTube Channel)
These guys Standard Throwbacks videos are a must watch. Love watching old Standard decks go head to head!
Sylvan Studies (www.sylvanstudies.com)

The channel is a lot about what Coops loves about TCGs whether that be cracking packs, building decks and assessing meta and finance. On his channel you will likely find set previews/reviews, “Can we flip it” booster pack series - booster pack, bundles and booster box openings, plus budget, janky and competitive deck builds and deck techs. (Interviewed Coops here.)
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!
