From the Lab: Playing With Matches

Sometimes a card just sticks in the back of your mind, waiting for the right deck to come along and free it from obscurity. Death Match is a card that’s been floating in the back of my consciousness for years, ever since a friend first introduced me to the card, mentioning he has an old casual deck built around it. I had half forgotten about it after all this time, but seeing it in another friend’s trade binder brought it back into the light. I promptly traded for it, and started working on putting together a combo with the card.
