When I first began playing Magic competitively, preparing for big events wasn’t as important to me as it is now. I’m willing to bet that on average, there’s a direct correlation between time spent preparing for an event and the results received. With Grand Prix Providence (team sealed format) right around the corner, I’ve been looking over the 140+ various tricks and instants that may complicate combat decisions. Check out this comprehensive list I’ve prepared featuring the instants, bloodrush, and flash creatures of Return to Ravnica block! Hopefully it will help you this coming weekend at GP Providence—and, if you want, you even download a handy PDF version of the below for the car ride up to Lil’ Rhody.
